War Preparedness Board Urges That
People Contribute for Soldiers',
Lansing, Mich., July 9.-"If you are
asked to give to the company fund
of any organization of the Michigan
national guard, give. Be as generous
as you can afford to be and then a
little more. For the company fund
is as necessary and important to the
soldier in the field as is the Red
This is the message of the war pre-
paredness board to the people of
Michigan. It is sent out in response
to several inquiries which have come
in recently concerning the formation
of company funds in various cities of
The company fund of a battery,
troop, or company is formed by money
saved from the ration account and by
donation. Its existence is provided by
army regulations. It is divided into
a mess fund and other funds. The
mess fund can be used only to buy
food to supplement the ration, or to
supply dainties for the sick. Nothing
but food can be bought by this fund;
even kettles and plans for the kitchen
cannot be secured out of it.
Use Funds for General Welfare
The other funds can be employed
for the general welfare of the organ-
ization. Here are some of the uses
to which these funds were put in va-
rious Michigan organizations on the
border last year: Hiring of motor cars
for transporting sick to hospital; pur-
chase of flowers, writing paper, and
ink for the sick; transporting sick to
home "station; placing electric lights
in company streets; purchasing kitch-
en utensils not provided by the gov-
ernment; building floors and side-
walks for tents; purchase of dies for

captain and audited monthly by the
other officers. The first sergeant is
the usual custodian of the company

any time by any cnlisted man.
