Tho reason for this, and for the request that they do not buy It from the local stores is, that wool is needed greatly In the army, and there 1B a shortage of It, as compared to the need of It. If Iho Chapters should go out and buy tho yarn Independently In the mar- kuls, the result would be disastrous. Therefore the government has asked that the Ited Cross chapters buy their wool through the Central Organization, as they will get their fair proportion this way. The Pershing Jted Cross Club will meet Wednesday afternoon with Mrs. C, T. Taylor. •• Tho Itussoll. Red CroBa will meet Wednesday, afternoon at the home of Mrs. C. A. Wehc on Sixth avenue east. Miss Ruth-Frame, who has been a nurse at tho Methodist Hospital, expects to get her call about tho fifteenth of this month for army service. Site does not know as yet where she will he sent.

DMJ/M and FuMraJT} Afl yoi The death of Fred A. Forsha, which took place yesterday afternoon In Now York City closed the life chapter of one of Hutchinson's beet known men, whose lust three years have been clouded In' the lost identity which is pno of the results of paresis, the disease, which the physicians diagnose as the cause. Three years ago when in New York ho disappeared and only a chance brought him homeward In tho last hours, lie was riot able and could not recall his old personality except in a few flashes qf memory when with his brother-in-law, Louis Springer, of New York, and Howard S. I*wis, who was summoned to that cHy last week to make sure ot his identity. Tho facts of his last three years were fairly well gathered from a friend who brought him to New Yort not knowing the real man wffb whom ho had been well acquainted. When Fred left Now York he went to Hayli, where ho engaged in the lumber business, doing satisfactory work for hts employer and making many acquaintances. His nomo was Thomas Jel terson Forest, and no one, and least of all himself, probably connected jilin with Fred Forsha. A short time ago he was taken with a tropical fever and a friendly -Hay-Han planter, Mr. Fool, who was coming to New York, bijougbt him along at his request, ;Whilo> ill. qn shipboard he mentioned .the. hatha, ^al Louis Springerl of'lhe New York Sun, and that was the only clue tho planter had to locate a friend. Vj.y. Pool called Mr. Springer, but -lib- knew nothing of T. J. Forest. At tho sug gestion of Mr. Pool Mr. Springer went to see tho sick man and he was Fred Forsha. No doubt all these years ot absence were spent by him wiuiout a knowledge of his own past. When Mr. Lewis reached New York Fred was close to tho end ol life. He finally Beemed to recognize Mr. Ijewls but could recall little to the suggestions ttynt he made, remembered nothing of his own going away and little of the affairs, family and friends, knowledge of whom had been taken from him by tho peculiar development of tho brain disease. Fred A. Forsha was born in Glenwood, Missouri, and came to Kansas nnd to Hutchinson with hiB parents In 1883.' When he grow to manhood he engaged in business with his father, when they owned the first atroet railway. Then he turned his attention to livestock, was a large dealer, and comnilasion ( man and lived several years in Kansas City. On the death of his father and brother he returned to tho Forsha ranch and was managing that when he went to New. York in 1916 to make a war contractor the sale of horses. The family now consists of his mother, Mrs. A. L. Forsha, his wife Mrs. Mlnnto Forsha, a daughter, Mrs. Jean Russell ot Oklahoma City, Many friends of the family and of Fred will sympathise moat deoply with them at this sad time. The body will be brought homo from New York and loild to rost beside father and brother. MI8S .WOO&TER ASSURED. Mrs. jCor^G, L«wl» Resigned Today •/.;.' As • Candidate.
