Red Cross Fund Drive Underway Give Review Of Activities, Help For Year The Kossuth County Chapter of American Red Cross is completing plans for its annual County Fund Drive campaign, to start Monday, Oct. 9. It is to be completed by Thanksgiving. A meeting of the chapter was held last Wednesday at 8 p. m. in the Algona Hotel. Zip Koons of Swea City, membership and fund drive chairman for the chapter, and Mrs. Arlene Patzwald, National Representative from Mason City, were present with Evelyn Bickert, executive secretary of the local chapter, to discuss and explain the goals and needs of the organization with 25 of the township and town chairmen from the county who were present and who will this year assist the drive. A general report of the local chapter's activities was given. The chapter's major service and expense for the year has been in its assistance to servicemen and their families through requests averaging approximately one a day. This chapter also gave assistance at the time of the Belmond disaster last October. Five days were spent on the spot, helping with the feeding arrangements. Out of this chapter, the services of four registered nurses and a first aid instructor were provided during the cleanup. Those who volunteered time and efforts were Mrs. Bernice Alt, Joyce Hayden, Lorain Smith, Lorraine Harms of Titonka, and Irene Kollasch, first aid instructor. Along with the chapter's service to the military and disaster, it made its first aid service available to more people in the county by introducing classes into the high school class room. First Aid certificates went to 556 individuals who have earned them out of the total 590 enrolled in either adult of school classes. Algona High School, through the efforts of Mrs. Delia Moxley, regularly included the teaching of first aid in its health classes, but it was a first time for the other four schools. Mrs. Irene Kollasch taught standard first aid classes at both Garrigan High and St. John's High, Bancroft; Charles Sass, boys' coach at Titonka Consolidated school;" Mrs. Kay Tague, girls' physical training instructor at Titonka Consolidated school; Sherman Arends, high school coach at LuVerne Community school. Allan Blake, LuVerne mortician, instructed both standard and advanced first aid adult classes in Titonka, LuVerne andRenwick. Recently the chapter was able to add another instructor to this list of capable people.
