Red Cross Goal Passed In Washtenaw County Laddie Ann Arbor and Lassie County nearly burst with pride as they finished filling in all the white spaces on the cross and hunted for more room as the Red Cross drive for funds went over the top today to the tune of $96,244. Lassie County clapped her hands with glee when she learned this morning that the county outside Ann Arbor had gone eight per cent beyond its quota of $31,000, and was now credited with collections of $33,507. Because the county came in first in the race today, Lassie was permitted to fill in her "$" signs first and she chalked up her 16th sign for the county which represents the extra margin the county has given. Laddie Ann Arbor felt pretty good himself as he put the 48th "$" sign on the cross, signifying that not only had Ann Arbor exceeded its quota by two per cent, but that the total for the city and county was four per cent beyond its goal. Congratulations are in order for everyone who has worked to make the "$" signs for the Red Cross grow, and the people of Washtenaw county can know that through their efforts the county has once more gone over the top for a good cause.
