f ALGONA BRANCH RED CROSS HEARS FROM AFRICA ZONE Private Donald Ramus High In Praise of Work By th Organization Toward Boy Overseas and In Trench "There may be, at various times «3oubt on the 'home front' as te how the funds that we give tc war activities, are being used an just how much benefit the boy are getting from them," said T. H Chrischilles Tuesday. "All such doubts, if there are any, must b quickly dispelled when we rear a personal letter such as I receivec from n soldier 'somewhere in Africa', who appreciates all th help the Red Cross, and especiallj the Kossuth Red Cross, is doing. Kossuth Soldier Writes "This is a rather long story bu it concerns one Pvt. Donald A Ramus, who came from Cherokei but was inducted into the armj from the Kossuth county draf board on Sept. 29, 1942," contin uecl Mr. Chrischilles. "That h< considers Kossuth his 'home coun ty* is evidenced by his letter 'which I hope may be reprintec in full, just as it was received b> the local Red Cross. "It seems that young Ramus came from Cherokee to work foi some of his relatives, who live near Lu Verne. Because there are a number of Ramus' in the Lu- Veme vicinity no effort could be made to contact the exact family but they will probably be reachec through the column's of this newspaper. "Few of us realize, when wo give our money to the various wai activities, what it means to some lonesome boy, stationed in a far- off corner of the globe, to have an organization like the Red Cross •minister to his comfort and give him hope and encouragement. The letter is dated June 5, 1943, anc is addressed to the Red Cross ol America but directed to the Algona, Iowa, branch." The Letter "1 hardly know how to write this letter but have had it in mind so long that I finally got around to write a few lines to the home town Red Cross. The reason for writing is to' let you know how much we fellows appreciate what 'the Ked Cross has done for us. Also what the Red Cross workers of America are doing to help us fellows win this war. "We all think highly of the Red Cross and I am sure that what we donated while we were back home will never be missed for the men in the service highly appreciate what you have done for us. I'll say to the Red Cross workers in aiy home town "Keep up the good work for you have the whole nation behind you." "To my notion the Red Cross Is an organization of trust, when , •a fellow feels low in spirit he can Wanted—Addre«*e« Of Kosftuth Service Men—Immediately The local American Legion wants to send a gift booklet to every service man from Kossuth county. So far 500 names have been received. Take time out and buy a post card and send in the name and address ot your son or your husband, to Ralph Miller, Algona, Iowa, in order that the Legion may got this gift to the boys in the armed forces. go to the Red Cross for a boost. We never fail to get what a soldier needs, we have never failed in asking a question but what wo got an answer in some way that would make a fellow feel better. "In closing, we fellows in the service give three cheers for the American Red Cross. And I especially want to thank the Red Cross workers in my home town for what they have done. Keep up the good work and all the soldiers will never fail you in any way. Private Donald A. Ramus, ASN 37435747 319th Sig. Co. Wing, APO 3932 care P. M. New York, N. Y." • -*Justice of the Peace J.
