Mail Tribune 100, June 11, 1921

The following news items were drawn from the archives of the Mail Tribune 100 years ago

June 11, 1921


$3000 Quota Secured in Brief Campaign — Number of Contributors Tripled — Thanks Extended to Those Who Gave Aid.

The Y. W. C. A. is over the top! The $3,000 wanted is pledged and the Y. W. C. A. in its fuller program is assured for another year. The whole city is rejoicing that the campaign was carried to a successful issue and that the citizens have shown their belief in the girl’s work to the extent of giving to the organization so cheerfully.

The Y. W. C. A. wishes to thank Mrs. H. G. Wortman, the chairman of the finance committee, and her committee; Mr. Mann, the chairman of the initial gift committee and his helpers; Mrs. Hubert Clark, chairman of the publicity committee, and her committee; Mrs. Corning Kenly and the Colony club; the captains and all the workers; especially Gladys Bridges and the other business girls, who in the short time they had in which to work, accomplished so much, and the public who put it “over the top.”

The Mail Tribune merits the keenest appreciation for their interest and assistance. The many stores who arranged the attractive Y. W. C. A. windows and those who donated advertising space have the hearty thanks of the Y. W. C. A.

The point that gives the greatest satisfaction in this campaign is the fact that three times as many people gave this year than have last year, which means three times as many people believe in the Medford Y. W. C. A. this year than did last year. The average gift from the people of small means was wonderful, meaning in many cases a sacrifice in order to give.

The committee also wish to thank the Walker Auto Co., for allowing Y. W. C. A. headquarters to be in their building. In fact, Medford may well be proud of the way in which her citizens worked and gave, to put this campaign for the Y. W. C. A. over the top! It will be with keen regret but pleasant memories that Miss Sarvay, the Y. W. C. A. worker from New York, will leave on Monday for the east.


Medford and Jacksonville was strawberry crazy today, so to speak, due to the fact that the luscious fruit is selling cheaper than for years past and the housewives are afraid the home grown supply will give out before they can get enough for their canning needs. The supply today could not begin to fill the great demand and housewives importuned the grocers and the public market to take their orders for future delivery. At the public market alone about seven hundred cases could have been sold today. Even country people came to the city to buy strawberries. One commercial dealer who was to have sold his entire supply at the public market today sold 100 cases for $175 to a Klamath Falls dealer who came to the city last night in an auto truck to take them away
