Campbell of Humboldt, chairman of the county-wide United Service Organizations drive, states that campaign will get underway May 26. Humboldt county's quota Is $2040 to help build clubhouses for the servicemen, and provide entertainment. The six member agencies of the USO are the Y. M. C. A., National Catholic Community Service, Salvation Army, Y. W. C. A., Jewish Welfare Board and the National Travelers Aid Association. They represent the three principal religious faiths of this nation. The main objective of the USO is to help build and maintain the strongest fighting spirit among our men In uniform by showing them how much their friends back home appreciate what they are doing; to make this appreciation tangible in the form of friendly hospitality and service in the soldiers' and sailors' off-duty hours. USO now has 21 clubhouses in eight trans-ocean bases. They have many In the United States that will help build the morale of the servicemen. The club houses are used by the lonely boy who is seeking some friendly place to go, the soldier or sailor who likes congenial company and other social entertainment, the sold'ier who wants to associate with civilian families In town, etc. The USO gives its most important services free. There is no charge for use of Its clubhouses, dances or games. There Is'now no admission charged for any of its great circuit of camp shows. Refreshments for parties and free cookies are generally provided by women volunteers who work with USO. But the organization needs money to carry on the latter part of 1942, and the committee is asking that everyone donate to this good cause. The USO needs $32,000,000 this year.
