Red Cross Total Mounts Although the Red Cross drive in Washtenaw county will not officially close until tomrrow, the county has already gone more than $9,000 beyond its goal of $92,500, and Lassie County and Laddie Ann Arbor happily added two and a half "$" signs to the record today, showing that the Red Cross total now stands at $101,521. Lassie County added one and a half "$" sings to her side of the big white cross, showing that the county outside Ann Arbor has contributed $35,287, or an increase of $4,287 over its quota of $31,000. Laddie Ann Arbor added one "$" sign on his side showing that the city of Ann Arbor has contributed $66,234, or $4734 over its quota of $61,500. Although the "$" signs have already filled the original cross used to keep a record of the donations, and have been crowded off to the side, reports from Red Cross headquarters say that more money is yet to come, and that Laddie and Lassie will still have work to do.

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.
