Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1950, Winona, Minnesota Little Change In Temperature VOLUME 50, NO. 238 Watch For The Threat of Red Sabotage' FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 25, 1950 1950 Good Fellows Fund Opens, 800 Children Need Aid Conditions of the needy are just as bad as a year ago or worse, and it will take more funds, because of increased prices, to do the job if every child in Winona is going to have a Christmas this year. That is the picture facing the Good Fellows this year. It is based on cold data taken from the files of welfare agencies. For example the city relief department case load today is 85, including 180 children. A year ago it was 80 with 166 children. Last year the estimate on the number of children who would have no Christ- mas unless the Good Fellows helped was 750. .This year the same sources place the number at more than 300 children. Helped 612 List Year Last year the Good Fellows raised and spent more than buying Christmas gifts for 612 children. This year there are more needy children and prices are higher. It is going to cost more to bring joy to these children this Christmas. Perhaps actual examples tell the story best. A welfare worker related this story today. A Good Fellow desired to give a Thanks- giving dinner to some needy family. From the list, a welfare worker picked a family where the husband had been sick most of the year, where the mother of the four children worked to get to buy food and fuel. They live in a two-room shack. The children were from two to eight years old. The Good Fellow, arms full of food packages, rapped at the door. There was no response. A radio was playing inside and a light was on. He pushed open the door. There on the floor sound asleep was the two-year-old child. No one else was around. He tiptoed out. Two hours later, he again rapped and got no response. He pushed the door open. The child still slumbered. Smiling, the Good Fellow placed the food around the sleeping child and went his way. This child when it awoke had something to be thankful for. Child Caret for Family Another scene that lacked humor was taking place in another part of Winona. A nine-year-old child had stayed home from school all week to care for five smaller children. His mother was beside a hospital bed trying to encourage the father to live. He had been very seriously hurt in an accident. The whole family needs warm clothing and shoes, the welfare worker who has been helping out reported. For 40 Good Fellows have been a part of the Winona Christmas spirit. It is the organization that fills the gap between you and me and all others who desire to make some needy child happy in remembrance of the Christ child. It takes his or her cold dollar and turns it into warm strong shoes or a new coat and puts it on the feet or back of some needy child to make that child's Christmas a rememberable event. Plan The plan is skeleton simple. Just put a one, five, ten, or hun- dred dollar bill into an envelope. Bring or mail it to The Republi- can-Herald. The contribution will be listed. The Good Fellow workers, who have been busy for the past week interviewing school teachers, welfare agencies and other sources, finding needy children, get the contributions, call the school or home for a child, take the child to a store, buy shoes or cloth- ing and see that they are properly fitted. The child, one of the or more who must be cared for this Christmas, is on the road to a Merry Christmas. The Good Fellows do not duplicate the work of other groups. They supplement regular welfare and charity organizations and give the needy child a gift at Christmas. Buyers Experienced Its buyers are experienced workers. It gets discounts from the is economically is no waste. The full dollar you give goes into the gift. The children are picked by school teachers wr" have worked with them since last September and know their circumstances. Their lists are checked by welfare workers and school nurses.

Grange Supports Excise Profits Tax for Defense Minneapolis The National Grange was on record today for a substantial excise profits tax to help pay the cost of defense. Demand for toe tax came in the final moments of toe ten-day convention whch closed yesterday. But such a tax, a resolution stat- ed, should be based on a reason- able return on invested capital. "In our emergency the Grange said, "a high excess pro- fits tax is completely justifiable but we must preserve opportunity and incentive to expand." More than a score of resolutions were approved. Among them were demands for a 12-man bi-partisan commission to help take the farm problem out of politics; for action on toe St. Lawrence seaway and power project; for curbs on private utilities which the Grange said seek to block REA development in areas where private utilities cannot do toe job; for 'curbs on Communism; for establishment of mental illness clinics; and for di- vorce of the Farm Bureau and ex- tension service. Wisconsin Deer Season Closes, 17 Hunters Dead By The Associated Press A smattering of hardy deer hunt- ers braved Wisconsin's frigid woodlands Friday to close toe 1950 seven day any-deer season in which at least 17 persons lost their lives, ten by heart attacks, seven by gunshot.

Mary said that she, too, was go- ing outside and went into the living room of the Pehler home to put on a pair of shoes. In Living Rom The shotgun, which John believ- ed was not loaded, was in a corner of the living room and the youth .walked over to take it. He was carrying it through the room when it discharged acciden- tally and the charge struck Mary Ellen, who was sitting in a chair lacing her shoes, in the chest. A Fountain City physician, Dr. Fred Skemp, and Abts were called to the Pehler home and a ruling of accidental death was made aft- er the investigation, A fifth grade pupil at the St. Stanislaus school in Winona, Mary Ellen was born February 24, 1940, in Winona.

Chongju is 51 road miles south of Sinuiju, main gateway for Chinese Reds in extreme northwest Korea.

But it was on toe northwest push that MacArthur was pinning h i s hopes for ending toe war by Christ- mas. Here's how that push pro- gressed: On toe west end of the line, an unopposed tank-led task force of the 24th division seized hills overlooking Chongju on toe eastern outskirts. The Americans were preparing to enter toe city at noon Saturday. Other elements of the 24th, ad- vancing west of Pakchon on the right flank, reported destroying a Joseph Stalin III tank, a Russian- built model weighing nearly GO tons. It was toe first such official de- signation of a giant Red tank in Korea, although G.I.'s early in the war reported seeing mammoth tanks.

MacArthur's war summary for Friday reported supporting fighters knocked out a tank and routed Reds at nearby Yongpo. The Second division moved along toe Chongchon river northeastward without opposition. It is headed for Huichon, seized by toe Reds in toeir late October counteroffensive which drove toe U.
