The women of this community have responded to the various calls in the way of sewing, doing a noble part toward the Red Cross and French Relief, besides offering to make shirts. These women asked the cooperation of all those in a position to furnish automobiles as they are required to carry work to and from Crawfordsville. Friday has been the day set aside for the various sections to do Red Cross sewing, and one trip a week to the city is neessary, so "do your bit" by responding to this call. Several sewing machines are needed and it will be greatly appreciated if such are donated for this special work. Please notify Mrs. Charles Kritz, Supervisor of Sewing. -typed by kbz
