(if) --Red Cross relief continued today to alleviate the drought ravaged sections of Arkansas while the state senate had approved the proposeu- 120,000,000 federal fund with the comment of one lawmaker that "a half a loaf is better than none." Meanwhile the Red Cross fuud has been increased by §10,000 from three, appearances by Will Rogers during his first day in the state. The senate expression of approval of the federal appropriation grew out of a telegram from Congressman Tillman B. Parks of Arkansas, in which he characterized the congressional $20,000,000 relief compromise a "tragedy." An end to relief was optimistical ly viewed by the Red Cross as result of the heavy week-end rains that fell over the state. The Red Cross, heartened by the favorable weather and additional moisture, ordered 25,000 additional garden seed packages to supplement its orlglnaUorder of 75,000. Red Cross officials, now feeding more than half a million drought sufferers, said immediate garden plantings would do inestimable good in raising the morale among dependents. FREE!
