--FAYETTE DOES WELLl in RED CROSS
The town of Fayette, did,';nob stop, work for the Red Cross membership
just because the Christmas drive was over. They now report 377 new
members, and a total of 742, putting them up in a class to like pride in.
J. W. Dwyer, chairman of the membership committee for the chapter,
says the work of soliciting members should go right on, as Fayette
county, while doubling its membership, still is short of the 42 percent
that is expected of us.
