Red Cross Names Captains For Fund Drive in Kisco The Red Cross meeting for the captains selected for the 1958 Fund Drive was held at the home of Mrs. William Skinner on Harri- man Road at 1:30 p.m. on Wednes­ day, Jan. 29th. Also present were Herman Fox, fund drive chair­ man, Mrs. Joseph Glass, branch chairman. Mrs. Skjnner and Mrs. W. W. Young Jr. acted as hos­ tesses. Following refreshments, Mr. Fox explained the function of the Red Cross in this country, the role of the international Red Cross, the vital role of the volunteer, and the importance of The Red Cross in relation to Civil Defense. Instances were cited concerning the public's argument against The Red Cross—for example, the sol­ diers' complaints that they had to pay for cigarettes. The answer gained from investigation is that cigarettes with The Red Cross emblem were appropriated and sold—but not by Red Cross work­ ers \What happens to the funds raised?\ is a question that is often raised. Four per cent is used for fund drives (printing, paper, ad­ vertising, etc.) Trained personnel costs eleven per cent, which is neglible in comparison to any business enterprise. Volunteers keep costs down. The Red Cross truly represents \First Aid\. Without charge, it trains police and fireman. The firemen get four first aid courses a year, he said. In it's servicing of communities the Red Cross sends trained work­ ers to instruct mothers and fam­ ilies when illness or disaster strikes with the attendant problems and expense. The Red Cross steps in with first aid, food, clothing, and funds when necessary. When all things are considered, it can be understood why the Red Cross must raise funds once a year. Most important is the aid the Red Cross lends to Civil Defense, in teaching organization, prepared­ ness and training in all their phcLS6S* \In collecting funds,\ Mr. Fox said \volunteers should feel that they are making a humanitarian effort of the greatest importance, because funds help sometime, somewhere 24 hours a day. Vol­ unteers are actually doing the pub­ lic a favor in making it possible for it to donate toward the work of this great and unselfish organ­ ization.\ A sound film made by General Gruenther will be shown Thurs­ day, Feb. 27, 8:15 p.m. at the Boys Club for workers and cap­ tains. Sunday, March 2 is Red Cross Sunday. Volunteers will be on the march. Captains named are: Mrs- William Engles, Mrs. Don­ ald Kofoed, Mrs. Henry Horowitz of Gregory Avenue, Mrs. Thomas A.
