This Is as of Saturday, June !lth. Mr. Schiff and his committee are very much gratified with the results lo dale and want lo ex¬ press their appreciation to all of those who have helped so far. They, however, feel that the job isn't done yet, both frnm the »tandix>int of the bond .sales of Franklin County, as well as from the standpoint of sales by the ZlonLst Organization. The War Bond Committee is therefore calling upon all mem¬ bers and friends of the district to do some more of the good patriotic work they have done to date. They would like to malie the sales $000,000 or over. Mr, Schiff fully expects to real-_ ize that, if every one co-oper¬ ates.

Others carry on a,s cultural, civic edu¬ cational, philanthropic and re Uef agencies.
