For Student Pledges Students! Give to the R<'d Cross Fund. Every student in Cortland State Tt•arht·rs college will have a chance to do his shan· on Monday, March 1, 194.3. This is a worthy cause to which all should subseriht• Make a Pletlge On this date a chapel program will lw given following which lltudcn~s will lw cxpccted to make a pledge to tlw Rt•d Cross. Cortland County's quota last yt>ar was $22,000. This was toppt•d as tht· rounty subscribed, $29,000. This Yt\<tr tlw amount requested by the RPd Cross is $34,300 from Cortland County. This is a large quota, but it can be mt•t. Red Cross Work Typical of the Red Cross work this yl'ar is their slogan, \You can't go to your boy, the Red Cross can.\ This tells the work that this organization is doing. Over 70 per cent of all the Red Cross funds an· used for the men in scrvicr. Thr Rt·d Cross has a field director in t'Vl'ry ramp in the United States. It is the only organi- zation permitted to have such an official within the camp itself. When the ml'n arc sent overseas, a Red Cross n·pn•st•nta- tive goes with them. Especially worthy of notkl• is Red Cross work such as the entertainment provided for Britain's soldiers which was pictured in a recent Life magazine. The R~·d Cross also aids in verification of soldier's furloughs, obtaining ronvak·s· n·nt lcavt· at home for wounded solcli~·rs. Other Services Bccausr of the lack of modc.rn madt in- ~·ry,. the Red Cross needs to roll 70 p~·r· n•nt of all th\ surgical dressings used. Many women throughout the rountry roll bandag!.'s along with studrnts and others from tht• community who do this work at the local chapter. Knitting and sewing arc two other phases of th\ work carried on by such groups. Besides this war relief work, the Red Cross also car- ries on its charter responsibiliti<•s of rar- ing for people caught in disaster, and in tlw field of education. Needs Support Tht• Red Cross needs tht• support of t•vrry stud\nt in Cortland Stat<· Trarhers rollege. The returns from drivt•s in for- mer years havl' been good; this year th<' rrsponsl' must top all previous records.

I fJUil'kly tight· ened the blankrt over my pillow, dust('{( off my she-lf and tlw window sill, stolt• an admiring look at the .polish on my shot•s and set out to salute my way to the office. The air was electric with t'ollgPniality, conviviality and fratl'rnity-with, of course, a pleasant touch of sorority. Betty invited me over to the PX for coffee doughnuts (rolled in nut meats). Her father and mother recently gave me an opportunity to enjoy a Texan's ~dea _of hospitality in an atmosphen• of qu.~etdl¥· nity and simple elegance. We dmcd m characteristically Mexican style - cn- chilades, tortillas, f rijolcs, guacamoll•s and Mexican rice. It is all no substitute for chicken a Ia Maryland, angel food a Ia Voorus or corn fritters, but it was an ex- perience.
