10-Algona, (la.) Uppar Red Cross Is Collecting Ditty Bags Despite the warm weather experienced here, efforts of the Red Cross are directed toward the holidays, as "Operation Shop Early" is launched. .It is the intention to supply every serviceman serving in Viet Nam with a ditty bag containing small, essential articles. The bag Itself Is made from inexpensive green or red nylon netting, available at local stores here In the county. Everyone is urged to take a part in this project. Groups such as veterans organizations, women's clubs, church groups, service clubs, Boy and Girl Scouts and 4-H'ers are especially effective in completing these ditty bags when working together. Each bag should contain a ballpoint pen, plastic soapdlsh, terrycloth wash cloth, foot powder, pocket comb, individual packet of tissues and paperback book. In addition, some of th» following suggested items may be included: small package writing paper, small address book, plastic cigarette case, lighter (unfilled), nail clipper, small puzzle or solltair game, miniature checkers, chess, etc., playing cards, comic and cartoon books, small plastic snapshot holders, individual sewing kit, metal mirror, small plastic bags (moisture protection for personal possessions).

Further Instructions for making these bags may be received from Red Cross headquarters In Algona. Kossuth's quota is a minimum of 70, and it is hoped to far excsed this figure.

Each bag should contain a card stating the name of the cooperating organiULtlon or individual making up the ditty bag.
