RED CROSS WORK IS GREATER DURING THIS WAR THAN EVER BEFORE To aid Europe's war-ridden millions the American Red Cross is now embarked upon a relief operation greater than ever before attempted in its peacetime operation. This gigantic task is exceeded only by the organization's operations during the first World -War. As representative of the strongest nation not in war, the American Red Cross has become the only hope for victims of the European holocaust, particularly the 5,000,000 civilian refugees- As their own resources become exhausted, only the Red Cross stands between these hordes of suf- erers and starvation. The size of the European relief task may be appreciated by a comparison with the Ohio-Mississippi Valley flood of 1937, the greatest natural calamity in which the American Red Cross has operated in the 60 years of its his- toiy. In that disaster 1,000,000 persons required assistance. Twenty- five millions of dollars were contributed in response to Red Cross appeals in this relief operation. Several foreign countries sent funds. $10,000- 000 were spent in relief of drouth sufferers in 1930-'31. The New York- New England hurricane of 193S required a Red Cross expenditure of $1,700,000 for emergency aid. As in other great catastrophes the American Red Cross must "follow through" on the European job- It nas estimated that $20,000,000 will be needed !f minimum needs of the victims of war are to be met. The problem before the American Red Cross means providing emergency food, shel ter, clothing, and medical supplies until the gap is somehow bridged- Many thousands of homeless civilians forced to flee their homes now have no homes to return to, nor any possessions whatsoever. Most of them were unable to take anything along as they hurried for their lives from danger zones. Many are wounded. Others are sick. As America's official disaster relief agency, the Red Cross is duty-bound tol end full strength of its resources in this country and abroad in relieving human suffering from major catastrophes without thought of issue 0. T. OLSON CALLED TO HIS REWARD ON MONDAY O- T. Olson, pioneer resident of Loon Lake Township, passed away at his home Monday at the age of 77 years.

The American Red Cross has been on the job in Europe since the outbreak of the war last September. Before the lowlands were invaded, it had spent $1,500,000 for relief needs growing out of the invasion of Poland and Finland. Up1 to a month ago Red Cross Chapters had produced approximately 300,000 garments and millions of surgical dressings for war relief purposes- As the war spread, chapter production has been sharply increased to meet rapidly multiplying needs. American Red Cross trained disaster workers are in Europe- The first of a fleet of Red Cross "mercy ships" from this country is being prepared to sail for France with a million-dollar cargo of medical supplies, ambulances, food and clothing. Thousands of dollars worth of emergency supplies haev been rushed overseas by clipper plane. Up to June lO.approximately $5,200- 000 had been sent by the American Red Cross for European war relief. Additional mill—ions are desperately needed and will be translated into aid and suffering humanity as funds are contributed through the $20,000,000 war fund campaign, which now has approximated the 10-million dollar mark. National organization is urging chapters to bring their local campaigns to a successful close by June 30. SPORTSMEN SHOW TO BE HELD IN BRAINERD Paul Bunyan May have been some gent but he never put on a sportsmen show such as will be held in Brainerd June 27-28-29-30, under Junior Chamber of Commerce auspices- The Paul Bunyan show will open with an evening performance Thursday, .Iune 27. and continue with afternoon and evening sessions Friday and Saturday and tn afternoon show Sunday, June 30.

Thompson arrived Monday from Bellen, New Mexico, for an extended visit at the Offa Thompson and George Yancey homes, She also visited with relatives at St- Louis -enroute here. _jjpcto5 jrTownsen'd HOWEVER much some may criticize, it is a source of com- fort to the American peo-; pie to know that it has a strong committee of the House of Representatives functioning to ferret out those groups which are committed to subversive, or un- American activities. Recently its significance has been underscored by the shocking reports of "Fifth Column" activities from abroad. Congressman Martin Dies, who heads that committee, has been ridiculed by some, but on the whole his work has been highly commendable and he deserves much praise. We must deal with international gangsters, who would destroy the security of our nation, just as we deal with the Capones and Dillingers, who are the enemies of domestic, society.
