BOY SQOUTS TO JOIN WORK Merchants In Country Districts to Make Campaign In Automobiles to Win Support for the Army's Right Hand. "Make Red Cross membership as universal as citizenship," is tho new slogan of tbe Christmas membership campaign committee of the American Red Cross for the Southwestern division, comprising the states of Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma. From the enthusiasm with which the preliminaries of the drive, which opens Monday, Dec.

17, continuing until Christmas eve, are proceeding, officials at Washington expect the original figures of 10,000,000 new menv bers to be doubled. In fact, if there are only 10,000,000 new members added to the 5,000,000 already enrolled officials will be disappointed, according to a message received at Southwestern division head-quurters from Harvey D. Gibson, general manager of the American Red Cross. In Gibson's letter he said officials would not be surprised to see the total membership for the nation on Christmas eve reach a total of 25,000,000. According to John L.

Johnston, chairman of the campaign for the Southwestern division, the drive in many counties already Is under way, especially in the rural districts. 3,000,000 Members Wanted. The Southwestern division, under the original quota of 10,000,000 members, is allotted 2,000,000, but Chairman Johnston predicts bis division will pass this figure by 1,000,000, apportioned as follows: Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Already- th hesfdqiuaVters tho Southwestern'; division' membership committee to assume the aspect of a military, headquarters iiFioni' Jjt'ifelvfeJeb'-'Vhef'e 'iflOi Crosa: armies already have i''gOflb lover the top" in the big drive messages are arriving reporting progress and asking for supplies. From counties where tho intensive campaign has not begun, but where committees are making detailed plans for, their the both by letter' and telegrani; for supplies, clr-, culars, posters and, general information are1 even more numerous. An corps of stenographers is.

kept 'busy forwarding issuing directions find sending telegrams and letters. The storeroom at division headquarters carries the similarity to a military base even further. Every mall and express delivery brings parcels and boxes of supplies from Washington, circulars, posters, handbooks, buttons and window cards, the ammunition to be used in the big drive. What Service Flag Is. One of the most striking emblems of the campaign is a transparent window card, designed as a service flag.

A large Red Cross on a white base is tbe central figure. Smaller crosses for each additional member of the family who becomes a member of the Red Cross can be added to the One of these card service-' flags will be placed in the window of every home where a. membership Is obtained. On Christmas eve it is planned to have lighted candle placed behind thesjei flags. If the canvass equals tho expectations of Red Cross leaders there will not be a home in the division Christmas eve that does not have one of these flags In the window.

Boy Scouts Are to Join. Boy Scouts are being organized to gain memberships. School programs, signalizing the coming of the holidays, will have an appeal for the Retf Cross. The work ofhe children, Red Cross workers feel, will be an Important factor in tbe success of the membership drive. 4 In country districts merchants with wide acquaintance among farmers are devoting their time, or have promised to do so, making auto trips throughout the country, stopping at every home and urging every member of the family to take out a Red Cross membership.

In some cities a census is being taken of every block, number of houses and apartments in the block being registered. The Bquad assigned to a particular block is given a number of service flag cards equal in number to tbe number of families in Its territory. Every flag a worker leaves in a window is counted as a victory on his score. Every flag he brings back Is chalked up as a defeat. In other cities merchants have promised the assistance of their clerks during days of Christmas shopping.

Every 'purchaser will be urged to include a Christmas membership among the gifts for husband, wife, brother, later, parent or child. Mrs. Joseph Boiler and Mrs. A. Reddlagton have returned from a visit with Mrs.
