a new found frierfS.
Proud came to Omaha yesterday
afternoon after selling his homestead

RED CROSS SOCIETY
NEEDS NEW MEMBERS
Crusade for "Minimum a Mil
lion" Helpers is Launched
OOULD DIETZ IN CHARGE
"The greatest service anyone can
do right now for Uncle Sam is to join
the Red Cross and help the member,
ship campaign,' said Gould Dieu
who has returned from a trip to Chi
cago, where he went to get pointers
from headquarters about the Chicago
campaign. The campaign will be
launched the middle of May.
Business men in Chicago are lend
ing every possible effort to make
their campaign a success, and many
of the wealthy ones are giving up
their business to work for the cause.
Mr. Sprague Warner, chairman of the
campaign and a big manufacturer,
has offered to come out here and
boost ours." said Mr. Dietr.
Confera with Hill,
Mr. Dietz had a two hours' con
ference with 11. J. Hill, director of
the bureau of membership extension,
who is making a membership drive
with the slogan, "A Minimum Mem
bership of a Million." He is optimis
tic enough to believe that number will
be raised within next three months,
"but Omaha must get to work and do
its share." said Mr. Dietz.
Mr. Dietz secured Mr. Hill to nun
age the Omaha campaign.
The society here is al scarcely any
expense, just the salary of a stenog
rapher, and so half of every member
ship fee goes to the- local fund, the
other half to the national.
Mr. Dietz has eighty sustaining
memberships already, he says.
Mr. Dietz's office is being stamped
with propositions for benefit affairs.
However, many of them wish to get
half the money, hut these arc not ac
cepted. "They must be given entirely
for charity or not at all," said Mr.
"F.veryone in Omaha should be
wearing a Red Cross button to show
their patriotism and loyalty," he said.
While in Chicago he saw Mrs. Jo
seph Cudahy, formerly of this city,
who has a class of 500 girls who arc

Beautiful Lawn of Old
