^^Hs^fetejaaS^^ c la 8 THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 19« MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Night Shift Beating Day in Dressings Business women who can make surgical dressings only in the evening are surpassing the afternoon workers in attendance and output at the Red Cross surgical dressing room, Wednesday evening, 18 women made 1,500 dressings, the best record made in the room since the week before when the evening shift also set a record. The surgical dressings department in announcing these attendance statistics pointed out that material for the February quota has already arrived and a larger one will come for March. The urgent need for more women who can devote longer hours in the afternoon was stressed. Since the holiday recess, afternoon attendance at the surgical dressing room has fallen off and if the quotas are met, it will be necessary for more workers to give longer hours. The downtown workshop at 211 North Federal avenue is open from 1:15 to 4:15 every afternoon except Wednesday and Saturday and from 7 to 9 'o'clock Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Surgical dressings are also made Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons at the Roosevelt, school. Women who wish to offer their services in this war time activity may come to either place. No training nor invitation to work is needed. Workers wear clean wash dresses, a white cloth for head gear and are asked not to wear nail polish.

Whitohurst, president of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, an organization of 2,500,000 women in 16,500 clubs, advises her constituents that no one can foretell at this time, but stresses the need for preparation for the peace which will come. Mrs. Whitehurst says, "Some salient facts must be kept in mind at all times during 1943, one of which is that we were woefully unprepared to make a lasting peace at the end of the last World war. This should not happen again." * * * Mrs. Whitehurst suggests that everyone should study the various peace programs. "Every citizen of the United States should be familiar with the Atlantic Charter, the League of Nations plan, Federal Union of Democracies, Regional Union, European Federation, and the program of the National Resources Planning Board." * * * Mrs. Whitehurst in her 1943 message urges the women to sacrifice. "Sacrifice is the first essential of winning the peace -sacrificing sons, husbands, natural resources, luxuries, and even personal liberty for a time. Sacrifice now means that the war will end sooner and that we shall have more of the natural resources when peace comes, when it will be necessary to help rehabilitate the entire world. "We cannot stop nations from arming again for another war, unless careful plans are made at the peace table. Public opinion will play an important part in developing peace plans, but public opinion unwisely directed is of no value. Start now to formulate an intelligent opinion, by studying all peace proposals and their implications." -- o -- Wa-Tan- Ye Members Conducts Meeting at Hamilton Home The January evening meeting of the Wa-Tan-Ye club was held at the home of Mrs. W.
