Mayor Issue* Proclamation For Roll Call The annual Roll Call for the Kossuth chapter of the American Red Cross will begin on Armistice Day. November llth, and end Thanksgiving Day. There I* little need for me to remind cltliens of our community how vital the Red Cross is In the life of our country. During the past year, both from actual observation and from the accounts of work done which were carried In the dally newspapers, we have seen just how Important It Is that we have an active agency of the American people to administer assistance when the need arises. The frequency with which this need does arise has been demonstrated during the past twelve months when we recall the floods, the tornadoes, the hurricanes, and the epidemics that have been suffered in various parts of this great country, and the work that the Red Cross has done to relieve distress and actual suffering as a result of these catastrophes. Other but less spectacular work carried on by the Red Cross has been Just as important The Red Cross comes to us now with another appeal for membership dues that will finance the work during the year ahead. Our Red Cross asks little from the community, yet contributes much to the general welfare of our people. For this reason. I sincerely urge those who are asked to participate in this great program by paying the relatively small membership to respond in a spirit of good neighborliness. I hope all will take part in the work by becoming members of the society. It gives me great pleasure, therefore, as mayor of Algona, to hereby set aside the designated period as the time when all past members will be asked to renew their membership and for those who have not enrolled before to add their names fo the ranks of Red Cross members in our community. C. F. SPECHT, Mayor of Algona. C. of C.
