Citing the overseas achievements of the American Red Cross Mr. Davis revealed that field directors, hospital, club and recreation workers are with American armed forces in virtually every command. Both in Europe and in the far east, Red Cross workers have either gone with invasion forces into new combat areas, or have followed within a very limited period of time, 'he said. On the home front, the Red Cross has broadened its service tremendously. Field directors are serving in every sizeable military establishment and camp throughout the country 'and recreation and social service workers are located in army and navy hospitals. One o£ the most important wartime Red Cross Junctions has been (he collection of human blood for plasma. Thirty-five blood donor stations are now operating and some 5,000,000 pints of the vital Iluid have been collected thus far. Other achievements of the Red Cross are the training of 100,000 Volunteer Nurse's Aides, who are now serving in both military and civilian hospitals, and the establishment of a smoothly functioning home service organization, which acts as a liaison agency between men and women in military service and their families at home. Numerous other Red Cross home operations, such as Prisoner of War packaging centers, where millions of parcels for war prisoners are prepared for shipment overseas, are supported by citizen- participation in the Red Cross War Fund. "So expansive is Red Cross service during this war," Chairman Davis said, "that practically every American civilian is in contact with at least one of its functions. To continue this /gigantic work all Americans, we feel certain, will assume their share of the responsibility." MRS, MUEH[, 51, SUCCUMBS HERE Services to Be Held Thursday Morning' Mrs. A. E.
