Fred Kurtz expressed nselt this morning as by no means satisfied with the result of the ac- Q taken. Personally he had favor- consolidation largely 11 because nana! headquaretrs, having a more in- late knowledge of the needs of the ;anizaUon, had requested, it as an to speeding up the work /as well a means of distributing'-tSa burden 1 placing somewhat heavier re- msfbility upon the chapters. The campaign," said Jlr. Kurtz, ill . produce some excelU-nt results. 2 big fact developed by it Is that members of the Cbnnellsville chap- are intensely interested in the · rk of the Red 'Cross and have a st commendable pride in" what the pter has done, both in quantity and Jity of work 'turned out. They agnize 'that we have a splendid or- Jzation that its heads of flepart- its are capable and efficient and t the work is running like a well ·d piece of machinery. The mem- 3," therefore, fear that any change ·break in upon' the HJC!] ordered rse which ,the chapter has beep. The vote'taken and the sentiments ressed show that there are well aded objections to making^ a age aside from any feeling that · eiiat in .consequence of the rival- Detween Uniontown ' and Connelis- 5, and this, after all, was. really leut'of ,,the treasons impelling as (he? did.. On the sr hand the objections offered very .good reasons why ·e .should be a*- central county or- Ization. One point was brought at the meeting which I am sure members, myself among others, never considered, or at least ?r with that attention its imports deserves. That is, with so many irate chapters the members are to become so absorb'ed in their fc that they, overlook altogether PEKRYOP01JS TO AUCTION OFF PIG FOR BED CROSS People of the Perryopoiis community will have the opportunity to buy a pis. as a means _ to boosting the Red Cross.

The supplies would be inspected at the county headquarters by experienced inspectors, packed in standard cases and forwarded direct, to the ocean pier ready for loading on board ship. This -would relieve division arid national headquarters ' of the enormous amount ot work now involved in the work ot shipping, and at the same time cut doivn the clerical worfc necessary in keeping the records of the work done by the several chapters. Sr. Norton also pointed out that un- 'der a centralization oC chapters it would be possible for much more work to be done in the county. There are scores oC smaller towns and communities that are doing absolutely nothing in the direction ot maKing supplies. These could be organized into branches or auxiliaries and soon become substantial contributors to the work.
