FAGE TEN THE PHAHOS-TBIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JANUART », 1HB SALVATION ARMY WORKS FOR NEEDY One of the many functions of the local Salvation Army post Is the annual preparation of Christinas baskets, containing food and toys for needy families. Above, Lt. Wanda McGregor and a group of volunteer workers, are shown putting the final touches on last year's baskets, Variety of Services Performed By Salvation Army in Logansport \ First lieutenant Wanda McGregor sat in her tiny office at the Salvation Army post at 414 South Third street. "Why do we call it an army? Because we fight sin," she said simply. In its fight against sin, the Army, now in its 51st year in Logansport and its 77th year in the United States, produces a variety of useful by-products which help take care of the physical as well as the spiritual needs of less fortunate people throughout the world. Food and lodging for transients, clothing and furniture for needy families, and advice for people burdened with problems all are part of the daily routine of Lt. McGregor and her assistant, Second Lieutenant Dorothy Kornoelje. New Books At Local Library Operating the local Salvation Army post are First.

As officers in the international organization, they are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Their workday runs from early morning until bedtime, and bedtime often is delayed until late at night. Both are ordained ministers and both have completed a rigorous ten-month course at the Army's Booth Memorial Training School in Chicago. The school, plus a five-year probationary period in the field, are required of all offieeres in the organization. Lt. McGregor is a veteran of nearly ten years service while Lt. Kornoelje has been with the Army three years and still is serving her probationary period. Both came here last July from Columbia City, Ind. In addition to their work in car- Ing for the needy, the two conduct regular church services—four on $20,000. About $8,000 of this came from the United Fund, of which the Army is an agency. The remainder came from tithing, Sunday School donations, rural service drives and the Christmas campaign. Each Saturday the post has a rummage sale of clothing and furniture donated by local residents, "Many people who need such items won't accept them as gifts, but if they can pay a small amount for them, they feel better about taking them," Lt. McGregor explained. She added that there is no need to pay anything for any of the services rendered by the organization. Anyone in need is helped without cost, and without thought of repayment. As if to illustrate that fact, a man entered the building. He was poorly dressed for the cold weather. He explained to Lt. McGregor that he was passing through on Paton, South Africa in transition Eliot, American Painting Ryan, Sew Smartly Brent, Time for a party Waldo, The Slenderella cook book Smith, Peloubet's Select Notes Jtor 1958 Maney, Fanfare Major, Norway home of the Norsemen Almirall, From college to Cow Country Morenus, Dew Line Rama Rau, View to the Southeast Barbaresi, How to raise J train a Collie Barbaresi, How to raise" am •train a Boxer Barbaresi, How to raise and train a German Shepherd Schroeder, Youth programs for Christmas growth Kauffman, If you live with little children Alexander, Adenauer and the new Germany Kannik, The Flag Book Schussler, Doctors, Dynamite and Dogs.

Within five minutes, and with no embarrassing questions—he merely filled out a small card—the mac was on his way to a local restaurant for a warm meal. After that he would spend the night in a comfortable bed in a local hotel. The Army would pick up the bill. congregation, offer consultations, and even perform marriages. The small two-story building that houses the local post is furnished simply. Downstairs is the chapel, which consists of about a dozen rows of hard, folding chairs; a storeroom n the rear for clothing and furniture; and an office just large enough to hold a desk, filing cabinet and two chairs. Upstairs are the living quarters of the two officers, the only living expense they do not have to pay for out of their own pockets. Lt. McGregor earns $26.50 a week and Lt. Kornoelje earns $26 a week. Besides the officers, the post has a part-time employee who picks up donations of clothing and furniture. He is paid $5 a week. A girl works as part-time janitor for $4 a week. At present the post has 54 members, of which 35 are senior mem- brs, more than 16 years of age, and the rest are junior members, from five to sixteen years old. The post has an 11-member brass band, which recently took part in the Army's music festival at Indianapolis. It was the first time Logansport had been represented at the event. It has Bible classes for the younger members, and a Ladies' Home League which does volunteer work, including the preparation of food baskets for needly families at Christmas. An advisory board consisting of local businessmen helps the post with its work. In the smaller towns in Cass and White counties, rural service units made up of local volunteers carry on the work of the Army and conduct periodic drives for funds.
