What the Red Cross Means Reports turned in to tills date show a Red Cross enrollment in the Chickasawba district of Mississippi county that is far below the goal set for the local chapter. Less than 500 persons have joined the local chapter of the lied Cross for 1933, and while many more will undoubtedly be added in the week remaining before the end of the enrollment period it is obvious that achievement, of the chapter's quota of 2,000 members will be a difficult task. • We wonder if there is ;i general understanding of the character of the Bed Cross organization. Because in times of emergency it lias spent tremendous sums of. money for the relief of human suffering many people seem to have the idea that it is a government agency, or at least has the financial support of the government, and thus is able to continue its work indefinitely without public support. .Nothing could be further from the truth! The Red Cross spends no government money. Its relief work is financed solely through the membership fees and contributions of men and women throughout the country. Without those membership fees and contributions it would cease to function, and when they are reduced it must reduce its activities accordingly.; Dur- . ing the nast year it has been made tne agency for the distribution of wheat and cotton provided by the government. but while this has enabled the Red Cross to increase the scope of its service it has also imposed upon it the heavy burden involved in the distribution of these government materials., Not necessarily in this particular community, but over the country generally, there will be greater need for the service the Red Cross renders than perhaps ever before. Certainly the people of this county, who in past years have received help that cost the Red Cross hundreds of thousands of dollars, should be -among the first to do their part to insure the continued effective functioning of this organization. Lack of it in 1027 or in 1930 would have meant a situation ' here 'that is horrible to think of. Lack of it in 1933 will mtan suffering that ccnld have been prevented, loss of lives that could have been saved, in many parts of this country—perhaps here. Many residents of thin community cannot give much. lUit if all who can spare a dollar will tako a Red Cross membership this county will be on record as appreciative of the help it has I'ucpivcd in time of need. And more important, our own relief needs for the coming yoar will be provided for. Roll of Honor Red Cross enrollment thus far has come very largely from the city of Blylheville." Outstanding exceptions are the Number Nine community, which has turned in a very substantial list of members, and the Clear Lake farm, which has promised a 100 per cent enrollment. There is room on this roll of honor for many other plantations and rural communities. And Still We mil Not Learn The automobile age '» this country is well past the (iiinilor-cciiliii'y mark by now, ami you v.-oiihl almost think that by this timu we 1 would have learned how to get over railroad grade crossings safely. Evidently, though, \ve haven't. A minor item in recent newspapers was a dispatch from au Ohio town, telling how a speeding passenger train crushed a touring car and killed its four • occupants; tomorrow there will be a similar article from somewhere else," and next year at this time there will- be still another. Where a crossing is protected by a signal, the most witless driver ought to be able to avoid all danger. Even where it isn't, a decent amount of caution is all that is needed. No motorist will be hit by a train if he . is willing to observe the most elementary rules of care. 18, 1932 '^ SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Heredity Follows Own Rules, Puzzling to Average Observer BY nil.
