^ A* the Red Cross coffers slowly begun to swell toward the $15,-600 goal, a total of $1,789.00 was reported from the business district, with but one block completed, however —t h e Oklahoma State Bank block. Its quota was met. One key worker in the residential section reported her block complete, and quota exceeded.
Women Braving Dismal Weather
The women volunteers in the residential sections were faced with damp treks find muddy shoes in their house-to-house canvass today, but were reported to be braving the dismal weather, anywav.
Son* tendency to belive that the Red Cross is this year to return to the pre-war “roll call” campaigns, asking donations of one dollar per person, has been reported, but Red Cross officials emphasized today that such is pot the case. As a matter of fact, the Red Cross chapter here and others over the nation may be faced with trying to do more with less, they report.
Currently the American Red Cross is maintaining 775 recreational establishments in foreign countries where Yanks are serving. The Red Cross has been asked to double their staffk in government military hospitals, and to place hospital staffs in veterans hospitals. Veterans Administration offices are asking Red Cross workers. Each Vet’s case has proved three times as expensive as each service man’s assistance.
Most Of It Stays Here For,these reasons Red Cross officials are requesting that contributions be as liberal as possible, adding that three-fifths of the goal raised remains in this county to operate the Pontotoc county Red Cross Chapter.
About 65 businesses have reported that IOO per cent of the employes and management contributed. The Conway rural district is over its quota. And, one organization—the Eastern Star— has made its contribution.

So they climbed aboard a train to Mukden.
Russians in Mukden still were suffering from that first shock when another group of a dozen correspondents arrived by the J3!”? iLexPedtent, bringing the total there to 21. A French newsman turned up later, alone.
Got To “Room” Some The first group found the Russians guarding the city with sub-machineguns. The newsmen didn t look around much, at first pie Soviets put them in the In-tourist hotel and said it would be dangerous outside. The correspondents fumed, until eventually the Russians said they could roam. Certain factories, however, remained banned.
