Feb. 9, 1918 Continued


The absence of anything cold or technical makes the Junior Red Cross work delightful. There is a warmth of feeling in it that makes anything else that might be offered at this time period cheap and mean by comparison. Because its aim is human welfare, its place is universal.

At a meeting of the Chapter Council Wednesday afternoon definite arrangements were made for the exhibit of Junior Red Cross work which will be given on the main floor of the library next Friday and Saturday during the regular library hours. Ambulance pillows, gunwipes, knitted scarfs, pinballs and hospital book will be on display. Groups of children will be engaged in the actual work of making these articles so that parents and friends can see the joyous activity of the thing. Service flags and war pictures in color will be used as decoration. The public is most cordially invited.


Medford gets some more fine advertising from Colonel Frank P. Holland of Dallas, Texas, owner and editor of the weekly publication, Farm and Ranch. In its February 2nd issue, and in editorially acknowledging the receipt of a box of fancy apples sent him by Postmaster Mims, he says in part:

"The city of Medford is a splendid example of civic pride and community development and proves what leadership an co-operation can accomplish. On a recent trip of "Seeing America First," the writer and companions had the good fortune to stop over several days in Medford, where the hospitality of the citizens, led by Colonel Mims, was so graciously extended that we were loath to depart and fully determined to some time return for an even longer visit.

"That section of the Rogue river valley is noted for its splendid pears, apples, and other fruits grown in abundance and shipped to every part of this continent."

The editorial is illustrated with a two-column half-tone cut of three large apples with a photograph of Colonel Mims' face in the center.
