Well, That Job Is Done! Well, we of Washtenaw county have done it again! We have put over our Red Cross drive in a really big way. Today the audited county total stood at $114,544. That's $22,044, or 23 per cent, beyond our quota of $92,500. And the returns are not yet all in although the campaign closed officailly last midnight. And here are Laddie Ann Arbor and the two Lassies County--who have helped to spur on Givers and Workers by marking up day by day the returns from city and outlying towns and rural districts--to join happily in the celebration as they finish their job. Laddie Ann Arbor has marked up 35 1/2 "$" signs, each representing $2,000 for a total of $70,976. That's $9,476 or 15 per cent beyond the city's $61,500 quota. The two Lassies County--the Original Lassie, and the second Lassie County who took the place of the Original Lassie when the latter was kept at home by an untimely attack of chicken pox--have marked up 22 "$" signs, for a total of $43,568, which puts the county outside Ann Arbor $12,568, or 40 per cent beyond its quota of $31,000. The News is appreciative of the eager, smiling, and very real help that has been given by the three six-year old kiddies, all of the First Grade, Perry school. Laddie Ann Arbor is Campbell Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Smith, 430 Cross St. Original Lassie County (at the right( is Saundra Wares, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter P. Wares, 1026 Green St. The second Lassie County is Sue Pierce, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin C. Pierce, 327 South Division St. Perry school authorities and parents were most co-operative in making their service available.
