TEKEMAH'S QUOTA $6,000.00
(Editorial from the New York Sun)
Sixteen hundred years ago an enemy host threatened Gaul, precursor of modern France. The first Constantine, surnamed the Great, let his armies to the defence (sic). Three times he was victorious, and it was in this campaign as Eusebius and other historians record, that he saw in the sky a luminous cross, with the Greek words which have been rendered into English: "In This Sign We Conquer."
After sixteen hundred years there blazes in the heavens a cross as luminous as that which struck awe to the heart of Constantine, a cross fiery, flaming and red - red with the blood of millions who have died for freedom, red with the glow of the inferno wherein the liberty of the liberty (sic) of the world is being forged.
The Red Cross must be the symbol in which America goes forth to conquer. All other forms of conquest we have renounced. Ours is the task not merely to supply millions of men and mountains of foodstuffs, ships and the weapons of warfare; we must rebuild cities and hearten war worn peoples, pour oil on their wounds and bind them up, kneel by the dying and receive from their lips the simple testament of the faith in which we rise, fight forward and finally rest on our arms victorious.
The tardiness of our entry into the war must be the measure of our effort. Let us give our money without stint when the call comes. The Red Cross is appealing to America for $100,000,000. There ought not to be an American who will not give something. A dollar from each of us would suffice. It must be more than that wherever possible.
To give money is so little! Can you shut your eyes upon the shining Red Cross?
We must win in Europe and keep the enemy from our shores
Give to the Red Cross War Fund.
America must break the deadlock. That

WHO WILL GIVE
"Men and Women from all walks of life are going to give to this fund as they have never before. They realize it is for their sons, their brothers, and in many instances their husbands or their fathers. Coincident with the mobilization of our army is the mobilization of the Nation's resources for relief to our own soldiers and the soldiers of our Allies. The whole $100,000,000 will come, we are sure of that in spite of the shortness of time in which the movement has had to be organized. Approximately one thousand cities and towns have signified their intention to wage aggressive campaigns. Governors of states and Mayors of cities have supplemented the President's proclamation by proclamations to their people. The thing has a sweep such as no movement, excepting only the Liberty Bond sale, has ever had in this country. Second only to the Liberty Bond sale is this, the most vital issue before our people."
We, your officers, of your Red Cross Chapter consider the order from the President as a real order and one that should be obeyed. We consider that we as well as YOU are in this respect as much under orders as the soldier who is sworn and taken the Federal Oath.
Through the Red Cross Society you serve your country as the solder in the ranks serves his country there. You serve with your money be it a small amount or large, your time, all that you can possibly give and more than you think you can afford to give.
Even then you cannot give as much as a soldier who give up practically everything he expects, even to his life if necessary, to serve his country.
ANY RED CROSS OFFICER MAY RECEIVE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TODAY.

Three large boxes were shipped this week from the Red Cross rooms. The box containing surgical dressings has 1717 pieces. The box of knitted goods contained 25 sweaters, 19 pairs of socks, 16 mufflers and 12 pairs of wristlets. The box containing hospital garments had 50 hospital shirts, 35 bathrobes. 16 pajama suits and 10 bed jackets. These shipments surely represent the work of a number of patriotic women.
There are now so many different lines of work there is no excuse for anyone. The woman who can't sew may knit or press or work on surgical dressings. Women who are kept at home because of little ones in the home are of course excused but there are ladies who have no home ties who have never been to the rooms. If any man in Tekamah was found to be so unpatriotic he would be called down by the patriotic citizens of the town. Why not also the women? Some perhaps will say that the have knit. Those who hava (sic) done a great deal of knitting are doing their part but the woman who at her own pleasure has knit a sweater or scarf perhaps for six months is not showing the right spirit. To do real Red Cross work a sacrifice must be made. Perhaps you will have to neglect some social duties, or perhaps you will have to arise an hour earlier, but nevertheless millions of women all over the county are making these sacrifices and greater ones.
Last week an auxiliary was organized with the ladies of districts No. 2 and 19. At the first meeting 20 ladies were there prepared to stay and sew for the whole day. A great deal of work was accomplished. The next meeting will be at Mrs. John Frazer's. The auxiliary has already planned to buy a sewing machine that they may sew at the school house next summer.
Toward the last of March the Home guards and the Red Cross are planning the greatest patriotic meeting that has ever been held in Tekamah. F. W. Judson, the state Red Cross director with several of the other state officers will be present to present Burt County Chapter with a flag for being the banner county with 72 per cent of the whole county members of the Red Cross.
With the sale of the goose last week at $1000 and this week the sale of a car load of hogs donated for the Red Cross bringing $5600, Tekamah has certainly brought herself into prominence. One hundred and fifty-one peoeple (sic) donated each a hog to be sold at auction at the South Omaha market. One deck brought $16.80. The other $17.05, being a little more than 50 cents above the market. Bert Palmer, Fred Morehouse, C. D. Houston, W J. Dixon and George McGuire deserve the credit for starting the soliciting and the farmers for responding so generously. Many spectators were down to see the decorated cars and some of the hogs, some elaborately trimmed in red, white and blue with Red Crosses painted on their backs.
The following is the list of names of those contributing to the car.
