Citing several activities of the
Red Cross in connection with war
work, Miss Jackson made it clear
that more money is needed and will
have to be raised if suffering among
our fighting forces is to be reduced.
Two outstanding operations of the
society are canteen service in or
near lighting areas and the prepar
ation and shipping of food boxes,
to American prisoners of war. She
displayed one of the food boxes,
which contained enough nourish
ment to last one man several days.
In 1941-42 the society prepared and
sh:,pped approximately 1,250,(XJ0 cf
these boxes. In the current jetfod,
1943-44, neary three and one-foui1h
million boxes have, been prepared

Referring to the forth coming
'membership" campaign, Miss Jack
son: stated that Morrow countyls
quota has been fixed at.$3G00.' This
is considerably more than last year
but. not. so much more , . than was
subscribed. The 1943 quota was
$2200 and the amount, received to

bowling equipment might be pur
chased and installed in the fair
dance pavilion, using the rest of the
hall for roller skating.
, C D. Conrad made a report on
his recent trip to San Francis
co,, which while not revealing much
of the business which called him
and other members of the Grain
Products board to the bay city, was
quite illuminating relative to ex
periences of a first-time visitor try
ing to find his way around in the
hiily, crowded seaport. Not only did
he find driving the hills exciting,
but at iirst glance he thought all
the sailors in Uncle Sam's navy
must be taking shore leave there.
P. W. Mahoney made a brief re
port on the bond drive, staling that
most of the issues had been fully
subscribed and that taking the to
tals of the bond sold the county
was safely ver the top.
