Red Cross Items

Forty eight pounds of yarn from Red Cross headquarters in Chicago and thirty eight pounds from Cedar Falls, arrived at the Red Cross station in this city Tuesday and was all gone within a few hours, so keen is the demand for yarn and so short is the supply. More yarn is expected this week. There are possibly five knitters to each pound of yarn sent and the old rule of “first come, first served” is followed by the dispensers.

You should see the things in the Belgian Relief box. You will remember that one enormous box was shipped last week, full of all sorts of nice fuzzy things for babies, and practical things for children of all ages. Well, this week, there is a fine start upon another box of things. That  neighborhood club of women- about six in number- are making the cunningest little dresses out of old dress skirts, and cast off dresses. Some are pretty enough for “best dresses.” Mrs. J. B. Crovisier, that north side champion knitter, has sent four pairs of knitted baby bootees, made from scraps of yarn. There are many quilts for babies too. One card club spent the day Tuesday making outing nighties for babies.

1000 yards of seven quarter sheeting was delivered at the Red Cross rooms this week and a good start has been made on the hospital box.

They need by all that is fair and just, a small safe and a desk over at the Red Cross rooms. The book keeping is having to be conducted in a distressing manner, with no place for books or valuable paper and no safe in which to keep the contributions of the day. There is possibly in the county somewhere a small safe or a desk not in use and it would be a fine thing to allow the Red Cross to use them.

The latest contributions to the Red Cross fund are as follows:

Mrs. Chas. T. Smith              $5

Mrs. Clara Bartlett, Duncombe  $5

Mrs. Josie Page- 10 quart jar of mincemeat which sold for $5

Mrs. George Gardner- fine dressed turkey which sold for $5 to Peter Schomer who donated the turkey to Mercy Hospital.

Sheldon Tatham            $5

Harvey Pettibone                  $50

Mrs. W. W. Boak                 $1

Mrs. F. E. Willson           $5
