As depicted in this reproduction of a 1944 Red Cross War Fund poster, many windows aUo will display the symbol of participation in the cause of Mercy and Humanity the Red Cross. Red Cross Asks To Cover WASHINGTON, D. C Confronted with responsibilities of unprecedented proportions, as the war enters its most crucial stage, and with a staggering task ahead in the post-war period, the American Red Cross opens its 1944 War Fund appeal March 1. confident that the American people will respond to the limit of their ability. President Roosevelt, president of the American Red Cross, Norman H. Davis, chairman and active head of the vast organization, and Leon Fraser, national War Fund chairman, join in urging the people of this country tc help Red Cross reach its national objective of $200,000,000 because of the vital part it must play within the next twelve months. Chairman Davis, in opening the campaign, will stress the fact that with the decisive stage of the war at hand, the Red Cross must assume a greater burden than ever before, and at the same time must provide aid to servicemen being returned in ever-increasing numbers. Red Cross operations over the entire world during 1943 have dwarfed its activities during the first two years of war. An even greater burden will be placed on Red Cross services in 1944. Thousands of American men and women are now in Red Cross service with U. S. troops at home bases and overseas. Field directors, hospital, club and recreation workers are with American armed forces In virtually every command, Mr. Davis asserted. Roth 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 time. On the home front, the Red Cross has broadened its service tremendously. Field directors are serving In Men's Work Pants and Work Shirts New House Dresses Children's Clothing Nice Line Yardage Goods Webb's Furnishings STATE STREET $200,000,000 Wartime Needs every sizable military establishment and camp throughout the country, and recreation and Eocial service workers are located in Army and Naval hospitals. One of the most Important and necessary war-time Red Cross functions has been the collection of human blood for plasma. Thirty-five blood donor stations are now operating. The dramatic story of the Red Cross Blood Donor Service, through which thousands of soldiers and sailors have been saved from death, began in February, 1941, wlien the Surgeons General of the Army and Navy asked the Red Cross to procure 15,000 pints of blood. Last year more than 3,700.000 pints of blood were collected for the Army and Navy. This year the goal is more than 5,000,000 pints. With major battles of the war yet to come, the Army has asked the Red Cross to supply many millions of surgical dressings. American men wounded in battle will depend acutely on the vast Red Cross surgical dressing production program. Numerous other Red Cross home operations, such as Prisoners of War packaging centers, where more than a million parcels for war prisoners are prepared each month for shipment overseas, are supported by citizen-participation in the Red Cross War Fund. So extensive is Red Cross service during this war liiat every American civilian ran contribute something to at least one of its functions. To continue this gigantic work, all Americans must assume their share of the responsibility of carrying on this far-reaching service. The $200,000,000 quota will enable Red Cross to alleviate suffering and pain at home and abroad, and to carry on Its vast military welfare service.' LEHI, UTAH LEHI LOSES FIRST LEAGUE GAME Lehi lost her first basketball game to the American Fork team at American Fork, Friday evening when they lost with a 50 43 score. The Lehi Forker game was nip and tuck the entire route. Both squads got off to a sizzling start with the adds slightly in favor of the visiting Pioneers to run up a 11 13 first quarter score. Lehi. The smoothly clicking combination of Cooper and Evans, potting howitzers from all over the floor, gave a powerful kick to the Leh.i attack. But with both squads roaring along under a full head of steam, playing even steven ball, the halftime score knotted up at 25 25. The third stanza saw the Cavemen play great ball and tuck the game carefully away among the ice cubes, when they range up 14 points while holding the Pioneers to 5. Lehi staged a determined drive during the final quarter in a vain attempt to salvage the game, but the Forkers put out too great a dose of fire-power. The loss shot Lehi into a two way tie with Provo at 7 wins and 1 defeat apiece. It automatically made the coming Provo Lehi clasn the high point of the season, with the winner of the game probably in full possession of all title claims. The box scores: AMERICAN FORK G. T. F. T.
