(UDM Newsfoto) County Red Cross Has 95 Xmas Bags, Vietnam Goal The Kossuth County Chapter of Red Cross announces a request for an Increased quota of filled and unfilled Christmas bags for "Operation Shop Early". No member of our armed forces in Vietnam must be forgotten this Christmas.; The full quota of 160,000 for the nation must be completed and ready for shipment between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15. This county's original quota was 95 filled and 50 unfilled bags. The unfilled bags are needed as a carry-all for comfort items by servicemen in hospitals and ports of debarkation in the Far East. This project was presented early this summer to the 4-H clubs of Kossuth county through Margaret Pratt, home economist for Kossuth county, as a community service project. Many of the clubs are responding generously, but with more of our boys going to Vietnam each month, the need has increased. Last year these bags were provided by the Ladies Aids, Legion Auxiliaries, Women's Clubs, and schools from the Lakota, Ledyard, Titonka, Swea City and Algona areas. This project offers communities an unusual opportunity to provide holiday Items as tangible gifts to the boys in Vietnam at Christmas time. The local Red Cross chapter can iupply the necessary directions for making these bags along with a suggested list for their contents. A field director just returned from Vietnam, has provided the following tips on items for these bags: (1) Individually packed, moistened paper washcloths are welcome since they can be carried in the pockets of men in the field. (2) Only adult-type pocket games should be included in the bags; some packages last year carried games for children. (3) Candy or nuts should be in vacuum-packed tins. (4) Only packaged writing paper should be included in gift bags; loose sheets of paper or tablets did not arrive in good condition, (5) Address books and snapshot holders rate low on the priority list; service personnel in Vietnam seem to have a sufficient supply of these items. If you would like to help in remembering our American boys in Vietnam at Christmas time, contact the American Red Cross, telephone No. 295-2805.
