The city has be~n divided into four large zones. Assisting Mrs. Butcher are four captains, one to supervise the work in each zone. The captains are: Mrs. S. J. Gilchrist for the northwest zone, Mrs. Jay Pounds for the northeast zone, Mrs. B. F. Arnold for ~the southwest zone, and Mrs. John Schenk for the south- east zone. In addition to those residential workers, J. W. Brewer is supervis- ing the business district roll call. Supt~ L. G. Whitzel, is directing the school roll call, and Garth McMillen is in charge of special gi~ts. With this combined force of work- ers, it is hoped that the Coldwater drive for Red Cross membership will be most successful and this city's quota of three hundred mem- bers will be reached. Especially in view of the heavy war time demands upon Red Cross services, in addi- tion to normal demands for assis- tance and relief, it is urged by President Roosevelt. Governor Payne Ratner, and Mayor A. L. Parsons, that all who possibly can enroll as members of the American Red. Cross. In addition to its national service the Red Cross carries out an ex- tensive local county program. Fifty Ito ninety percent of .the contribu- tions made remain within the county for local work, depending upon the I size of the individual membership contributions.
