The members divided the town Into sections and worked each section thoroughly for anything tlmt anyone could give, from food to clothing. The Lien's club, Frisco club, National Guard unit, city council, and the schools showed a deslro to help In this work and each has a representative .to assist En any possible way. The high school furnished the proceeds of one basketball game for t h i und. but because of the financial ondltlon of (.he school funds this ractice cannot continue. Anything collected by these or- anlzatlons Is placed In a commun- ',y store to be distributed among he ones that need help. Any applicant for food or clothing Is required, to place an application with one f the ctore officers and If the ap- ilicant'a condition Is critical enough o require help, it Is given.
