Rising In Red
Cross Drive


Believe it or not, and snow not-
withstanding, the mercury is rising
.mi the Red Cross thermometer
which is set up on the chart in the
League lobby, to the point of $440.75,
Elizabeth Luckham, '42. has an-
Almost $200 over the latest report,
the ever-rising total indicates the
success of the drive on campus. The
chart lists Stockwell Hall as top con-
tributor with $74.95, Martha Cook
running a close second with $68.75.
These two groups lead the dormi-
tories and all campus organizations in
amounts contributed.
Model Proves Worth
Dressed as a Red Cross volunteer
worker, and not using compulsion at
all, the model stationed only a few
feet from the chart, has collected
$11.69 by means of the little box held
in her outstretched hand.
Rosalie Smith, '42, will be inMiss
Ethel McCormick's office in the Lea-
gue from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, at
which time sorority representatives
are to bring in to her, money collected
thus far in the drive.
Someone will be on duty at a table
in the lobby from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
today to sell memberships, and also
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day next
Must Report Totals
Alpha Chi Omega and Collegiate
Sorosis still lead the sorority group,
with $29 and $22 respectively. The
chart records the amounts turned in
to the various organizations, if, and
only if, the representative of Red
Cross in that group has reported to
Miss Smith if a sorority, Mary
Brownrigg, '44, if a league house.
Miss Luckham stressed the fact
that unless cooperation may be ob-
tained from these women who repre-
sent Red Cross and are collecting
the money, the chart and the ther-
mometer will mean nothing..
