To continue the fine work YOUR RED CROSS NEEDS YOU. Through your generous support of the Red Cross you strengthen a vast program of mercy and community service reaching into every part of America. How well the Red Croea does its job depends on YOU. When you con tribute to the 1947 Bed Croea Fund, you become a member of a great, working family?a family of Ameri can neighbors who are pledged to help each other to time of need. People everywhere respect the Red Cross because it knows no boundaries of race, color, or creed, because its acle concern is for the good of man kind, because it serves our men to the armed forces and helps veterans, and is ever present when disaster strikes. Sam D. Bandy, chairman of the Farmville Bad Ooaa Drive, states that every thing is to readiness for the campaign for funds which will begin next Monday. Committees have been appointed and workers have volunteered. When the solici tors call on you GIVE GENEROUS-' LY TO THE 1947 FUNDhnd YOUR RED CROSS WILL CARRY ON.
