LOCAL RED CROSS OUTFITS MEDFORD FAMILY WIPED OUT BY RECENT FIRE ALSO GIVE AID TO SERVICE MEN

The following most interesting report of work with the soldier and civilian relief was submitted by Miss Hart on Friday to the board of directors of the Red Cross society. An outstanding feature of the work is the number of calls for employment and the many that are filled. The Red Cross has always been a timely agent in filling both temporary and permanent places. The substantial types of labor need feel no hesitation in applying through the Red Cross headquarters as desirable positions are frequently filled by them.

There is no better way of assisting the ex-service man than by the supplying of clothing. At no time is there enough underwear or outer clothing to fill the need of the ex-service calls.

One of the many serviceable acts of the organization was the outfitting of the Regan family who were wiped out of all possessions in the recent Grape street fire.

The report speaks for the hard work at headquarters during the past month.

Y. W. C. A. CONFER. A GREAT SUCCESS, TO BE REPEATED

The first vocational conference for girls in Southern Oregon was held here, from March 31st to April 2. The conference was a great success, and it is hoped that it will be an annual affair. Girls were invited from Ashland, Talent, Phoenix, Jacksonville, Central Point, Rogue River, Grants Pass, Glendale, Klamath Falls, Roseburg. All sent delegates but the latter two places. Eighty-nine girls attended these meetings. The visitors were the guests of the local girls during their stay.

On Friday evening, a “mixer” was held at the legion hall, where all the girls had the opportunity of meeting each other. A fine program had been arranged. The dramatic club of the high school presented “The Trouble at Satterlees,” which was greatly enjoyed by everyone. Miss Gaylord gave several whistling solos. Mrs. G. M. Bohler of Eugene, gave an interesting talk on “Choosing a vocation.” After this each group of delegates answered to roll call by giving their school yell and song.
