That the Red Cross is worthy of tmrrrrsal -npp-M ha- demon-

however a prevalent idea that it is dm ply a war tune or a disaster organization and in th** absence of em* 'gencies, there nm people wha think its constant support is not important. It is well therefore ’hat wr, he reminded that iii addition to keeping rn readiness for the relief of uffering caused by disaster—Disaster Preparedness—the primary ob-ligatien of every Red Cro - chapter is to ex-service men, service men and their families, Of.bel w„rthy ae-Deities which larger chapters include ar*' civilian home service, first aid and life saving, nursing and r.utr Hon

Here i- an opportunity for tile pen-[ file of Aiken County to show their i gratitude to the boys who risked I their all in 1917-18. During th“se 1 days I very good citizen had a feeling af profound* .I gratitude to these men. Nothing wa too goo! for them. Lets not forget, especially I those who are now disabled and in 'need. Few of these who were in t the front line trenches are normal today. Most of ut would bt* surpris-[ od ti* know the number of ex service men in Aiken County who need and are entitled to government aid. A trained worker among these men has estimated that around $80,069.00 I to $75,000.00 annually might be sell Du \ikon iii?v - i -men under various acts of Congress.
