The men were charged with having locked Fred Hawkins, a grocer, in his ice box and then robbed his store. The robbery occurred on February 22.

RED CROSS SOCIETY NEEDS NEW MEMBERS Crusade for "Minimum a Mil lion" Helpers is Launched Throughout Nation, 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.

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.

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. Dietz.
