TUESDAY,_pCTOBER 25. 1932 ILLCIILIIL WYE H ED MUSS !l II NEEDS Relief Activities for Coming Year Depend on Success of Campaign. The annual roll call of the American Red Cross, announced for October 2-1 to November 24, will find "icre than 3,000 chapters seeking ir.cjKtcrships f°r support of regular and emergency activities thru 1933. J. A. Waterman, chairman of the local chapter's roll call committee, hns summed up the na- liotial organization's relief activities during the past year as follows: "To prevent suffering in this pc- ricd of unemployment an'i ^on^rnl economic depression, the Red Cross has made widespread distribution of flour, clothing, medicine anti ether supplies. More than 2,200 chapters have participated in community unemployment relief programs. Many Thousand Aided "Approximately 15,000,000 persons, residing in every stale in the union, .have received • flour' through the r Red Cross, while the clothing needs of. tens "of -thousands oJ distressed families have been supplemented by the organization's present cloth and clothing distribution program. The task of converting government wheat and cotton into flour and garments was assigned to the Red Cross this year by Congress. "After fifty-one years as the official national relief agency, the American Red Cross finds itself in 1932 carrying the largest peacetime load in its history," the chairman said. Ninety-five disasters—in addition to unemployment—commanded the relief facilities of the organization during the last fiscal year, according to the local chapter official. That disaster played no favorites Is revealed in a Red Cross report which shows 62 disasters visited the continental United States and 28 struck insular , possessions during the fiscal year. Five foreign disasters were of sufficient severity to bring help from the American Red Cross. Help for Disaster Victims "Altogether, the agency extended assistance to 486,000' victims of disaster during the 12-month period. That figure does not Include the millions reduced to dependency as a result of economic conditions • "Since 1881, the date of its found•i mg," Mr. Waterman declared, "dts- •f r.ster relief has ..been outstanding • among^Hcd Crass activities, and » "^.^ontinuous state of ' preparedness has been maintained. Although tt is sometimes necessary to issue a national call /or disaster relief funds, the great bulk of relief work is supported—as arc other regular Red cross . services -wholly by membership, dues forthcoming during the. membership-campaign" . Final plans for an extensive campaign here arc being, completed this week and confidence is expressed the belief (hat the membership quota will be reached or exceeded in a comparatively brief period BLYTHEVILl.E, (ARK.)
