The money represeim the soldiers' donations to the Army Emergency Relief rtiiul. The fund Is to help out. when a fellow needs a friend, when there's an emergency which requires money. And it helps. A sergeant got orders transferring him to another station. It was ,-t sudden change, and the sergeant had no money left, after paying his bills, lo pay hLs v,'ifc's fair and get started nk the new station. Lieut. Hugh Kldridgc. administrative officer of the Army Emergency iiclief organisation nl (lie Past, advanced the small sum necessary to meet the emergency. No interest. Pay it hack out of the. next paycheck, or in stalhnents. A soldier's wife needed an emergency operation: A surgeon of tile Base Hospital performed the operation. The Army Emergency Relief paid the hospital bill. Allotments lo dependents bncV; home arc slow in coming and a soldier's family needs money. The Army Emergency Relief lends it, to be paid back when the allotment check comes. The Anny lakes care of Us own, and that's the way it's done. Any dependent of any Army man can make application for help in an emergency situation that requires financial assistance. The applied- Gen.

' The soldiers' donations arc made on pay day. As a rule Ihcy drop their loose change into the box, and it may be anything from a nickle lo a half-dollar or more. Men of the 703rd Squadron have contributed a lotal of $233.80, a arger aniounl, per mini, than any ohcr squadron. This probably is due- ,lo^-Ihespecial..feilc.resl .taken by the squadron commander,'Capl. I.'imes K. Holmes, wlio was Hie first officer in charge of Ihe fund here. The 32Cth Squadron, largest or- juiiralion on tho Post, has turned in a total of $365.22, and the :otnmandcr, Capt. John P. Mend, tells liis men it's more fun to put their change Into the contribution [».x than into a crap game. Capt. Robert R. Love of the lOlsl Squadron, has turned in n total of $245.70, and the offering of the 700th totals $201.59. . Cadets have done their bit with toUl of $320.69, and he officers have contributed $320.25. Cadcls have done their bit with total of $329.60, and Ihc officers have coiilribulcd $329.25. All the money goes to headquarters In Washington and comes back not according to how much station contributes, but ncord- ing Lo need. Here Ihc amount loaned and given outright grants roughly balances. 'lliose whn borrow pay it buck. the records show. Tlie fund Is growing.
