The Upper Des Moinea-Republican, jfavember 6, 1930 RED CROSS DRIVE BEGINS NEXT WEEK Local Chairmen Already Selected by H. W. Miller, County Chairman. KOSSUTH QUOTA IS 1,000 MEMBERS. Drive Will Begin in Earnest Wednesday Following- Armistice Day and Continue Until Completed. H. W. Miller. Algona attorney, announces that the annual county Red Cross roll call drive will take place during Armistice week. Mr. Miller !s chairman of the county Red Cross central committee and director of the annual roll call. Miss Florence Wells, field representative of National Red Cross, was in the county Friday and Mr. Mi'iler visited several Kossuth towns to find local chairman to conduct the drive. The canvass was for lack of time not completed, but the following local leaders wern named: Titonka, Mrs. Sadie Denton; Lakota Mrs. Julia Licsveld; Ledyard, Mrs. J. T, Heany; Swea Cjty, R. A. Haglund; Bancroft, Miss Collette Wclp; Lone Rock, Miss Ersel Blanchard; Fenton Mrs. George Newel. Mr. Miller planned to visit Burt, Whittemore, Wesley, Sexton, St. Benedict and LuVerne in search of leaders early this week. The annual drive is supposed to begin on Armsltice Day, but since many business houses are closed that day it is probable that at most places the drive will begin on the following day. At some towns it may continue for a longer time. Everyone who takes out a membership will receive an official receipt and a Red Cross button. There are four forms of membership, depending on the amount subscribed. The commonest form is the dollar membership, but provision is made also for contributing memberships at $5.00 each, sustaining memberships at $10.00 each, and supporting memberships at $25.00 each. It is important to remember that only fifty cents out of each subscription goes outside the county. This fifty cents is the share of the national and international organizations. No matter which kind of membership is taken out the share leaving the county is only fifty cent (not fifty per cent).

Thr Britt Tribune had the following nrU- ; c!e about the church and the con.Mr-.u-- j tive work that has been done there i during the past several months. About $6500.00 has been spent on the improvements which include a full basement with dining room and kitchen, an east entrance under the bell tower and a west entrance; a new parlor is built on the upper floor to the west where formerly was a west entrance. In addition to this the bell tower was rebuilt, a new chimney was —Courtesy Britts News-Tribtme. First Congregational Church of Britt. —Courtesy Britts News-Tribune. Rev. B. M. Sonlhgate. constructed, and. the building was given a coat of light yellow paint with white trim. The windows were repaired, a new entrance to the north was built and new concrete walks were laid from the lot line into the west entrance. The main entrance has new doors. The interior has been completely redecorated, oak pews taking the place of opera chairs formerly used, new velvet carpet on the platform, modem lighting flxtutes throughout, the building, a new heating plant and an indoor toilet at' the west entrance. The plumbing in the kitchen and dining room is all new. The church was re-dedicated entirely free from debt. The parsonage has been painted and considerable improvement made the past two years— all paid for and both church and parsonage are In better shape than at any time in its history. A large share of the church's financial condition is due to the gifts which were made by two persons. The late Prof. J. F. Smith made a bequest of $2000.00 to the Congregational church and a like amount was given to the Methodist church in Britt. These bequests were prompted perhaps because of the interest he found in these two churches when spending time with his sister, the late Mrs. Eliza Raymond, a resident of Britt for many years. She died a short time before her brother, Prof. Smith, and willed him her entire estate. Another person who befriended the church with a donation of almost $3.000.00 was B. C. Way, of Mason City, son of a pioneer Britt family, the C. C. Ways. His mother, Georgiana Way, was a charter member of the church when it was founded July 5, 1879. His donation cancelled the entire debt of the church after other funds had been expended. Besides the funds donated by the Prof. Smith estate and B. C. Way, the Ladles' Aid gave $500.00, a church fund of about the same amount, and about $500 in local subscriptions, carried out the remodeling program. All the rest remains here for Red Cross work in our county. The quota for Kossuth county, according to Mr. Miller, is one thousand memberships. Active canvassers in every town will easily be able to turn in this number. The work the Red Cross does is in its larger aspects familiar to everyonk;. Wherever there is disaster, as at the time of the Florida hurricane or the more recent earthquakes in Italy, the Red Cross • is first in the field with VJWWWJWJVWffJVJVfJV Richardson's I Specials For Friday, Saturday and Monday Parchment Shades for table lamps, each 50e A fine assortment of small lamps for bed room or end table use, each $1.25 A full size well finished end table, while they last at each : $1.75 Special Prices on all Linoleums and Felt Base Rugs.

The daily papers tell of this and readers generally thus come to know of it. It is not always so apparent tha the Red Cross is also active in less prominent ways. Thus the Iowa Red Cross gave relief in Lucas county following a tornado last May. In both state and county it provides sorely needed service to war veterans anc their families, to soldiers and sailors on duty within the state, to cases needing nursing care, to preservation ol the public health, to children needing better nutrition, and in various other ways which are unseen because publicity is not desired. Last year Titonka, Lakota, Ledvard Swea City, Lone Rock, Fenton, Whittemore, LuVerne, Wesley, Sexton and Algona responded generously to the roll call, and it is expected that not only these towns but a few which contributed nothing a year ago will support this worthy cause at this time. In each town the local leader will appoint a number of helpers, who will sell memberships on the streets and in the stores and homes. The good people of Kossuth county are asked to give them a hearty welcome and contribute as generously as possible. Pheasant Hunters Should be Careful. Pheasant season is at hand, in truth one day is of the past. How many of our ambitious hunters from the cities md smaller towns have donned their hunting garb and with paraphernalia made their ways to the farms in search of game? Hundreds of them if I should guess at all, and then perhaps I woudn't come near the real number of hunters at all. But I am also wondering how many bear in mind as they tramp through he fields just how much privilege they are taking for granted. It has been very evident in these last years just low free the hunter feels in going on;o the former's premises driving over ;he lawns, which in truth have been cared for just as much as the lawns of the city folk. How far would a farmer get if he took these privileges with the city man's lawn? Not very far, for I am certain he would be taken up for trespassing and a fine would have to be Us settlement. Then the fields of com vhich have not yet been picked, how much corn has been knocked down and off the stalk? No, they do not stop to consider that the farmer's hard labor is just in vain, that the corn is trampled under, which makes the yield much less. You, hunters, may say, "One ear of corn, what does that matter," but take hundreds of ears which the many hunters destroy, and make your average. Wliut would you say if we trampled your gardens and destroyed your produce-? It would be a sad story indeed. Cars have been driven through the fields and fences broken down. These thimj.s are going to make it much harder for the hunters in future years if more care is not taken. This is not meant for those who hiive been cautious and careful of their Minnesota Editor Successful Farmer. Exchange: When a city man becomes a farm owner his management may supply the neighborhood with many good jokes, but when he takes a worn- out wheat farm, paying $8,000 for it and raises $12,000 worth of sweet clover seed in one crop, the joke Is on somebody else. Frederick- Murphy, editor of the Minneapolis Tribune did that very thing, and the neighbors are talking this way: "Well, sometimes thise book farmers hit it off all right; you never can tell just what they will do, but somewhere in the back of their heads there probably is a farming strain which crops out when they get hold of a bit of land." Mr. Murphy is successful as a publisher, but he loves the soil far beyond anything else, and on his farm in western Minnesota he plans every change in crops and personally selects every pure bred dairy cow which is brought to the place. He admits even an ordinary farmer must have a great deal of wisdom but his chief maxim is that a merchant, a publisher or a farmer must keen up with the best ideas of the day." To succeed on the land or in business, he avers, a man must change his methods and products as conditions demand. Former Algona Boy in Audition Contest. Algona people will be interested in knowing that Donald Jones, son of the Rev. and Mrs. J. J. Jones, who formerly lived in Algona while Mr. Jones was pastor of the Congregational church here, was one of two singers to represent Pasadena, California, in the state finals of the Fourth National Radio Audition sponsored by the Atwater Kent Foundation. A recent Pasndena paper had the following item about Donald: "Donald Janes has lived here off and on for nbout ten years, his father, Rev. J. J. Jones, being pastor of Pilgrim Congregational church until recently when he moved to Santa Rosa. He attended Pasadena high school and junior college and for the past two years studied in the conservatory of music at the College of the Pacific. Stockton. He recently returned here to study under Allen Ray Carpenter and plans to make public school music his life work. He is a part time secretary of the local Y. M. C. A. and sings with 'The Rounders' male quartet over KFI every Friday night." Among those on the audition committee for California were Carrie Jacobs Bond, Mary Pickford and Rupert Hughes. A picture of Donald appeared in the Pasadena paper with the write-up. Charles Thaves Died at Lakota.

And we are going to fulfill the prophecy. How we sell such beautiful, high grade, full sized blankets for such a small price is "nobody's business." Remember, this is the blanket store of Algona.

It was also reported that a number of rural mail boxes were also torn down and these fellows are in for a bit of grief. Algona Teacher's Father Died Tuesday.

Llvermore Gazette: The William leding farm near St. Joe, where elec- ric lights have recently been installed, was the scene of an outdoor wrestling whereabouts, but for those who have match last week, with outdoor illmiilna- not considered the farmer's lot and tion.
