Red Cross Officials Urging Workers To Finish Soliciting Officials of the Jefferson Coun ty Chapter of American Red Cross today urged all workers to attempt to finish up their solicit- ing within the next two weeks. Although the month of March is designated as Red Cross Month- me sooner the solicitors get out and make their appeal the more response there will be because people at this early stage are an- ticipating the call. Do not let it drag too long, as people lose their enthusiasm. The fund drive goal of $5709 must be reached by the end of March, they pointed out. Funds may be turned in Mon- day through Friday from 9:30 to 12:30 noon. Please note that the office will not be open at any time after 12:30 noon, as it was in the past. Volunteers will be in the office at the Red Cross Chapter eal:h day to receive these funds. Remember when you used to go to bed with the curfew? Today they just blow it to wake you up. ;IiELD ELECTION OFFICERS IN SHEPIIERDSTOWN Officers of Potomac Comman- dery No. 5, Knights Templar el- ected and appointed the follow- ing officers on March 7, 1961.
