Red Cross Christmas Roll Call Opens Here Next Monday "AH You Need Is a Heart and a Dollar" In Order to Help "The Greatest Mother in the World"—Effort Will Be Made to Enroll Every Resident of Alliance. "All you need Is a heart and a dollar." Thla Is the slogan for the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call which will be conducted ln Alliance during the period of December 16-23 and for which arrangements are already underway in this city, as well as through out the nation. The achievements of the Red Cross In the world war are too well known to need repetition here. However there is a great work yet to be done in looking after the American soldiers and sailors ln service as well as those who have been discharged and come home wounded and sick. The dependents of those who do not return must also be given care and financial aid. Tbe aim and underlying purpose of the coming campaign ls to recruit under the banner of the Red Cross every loyal American no matter where he or she lives. The aim ls to "make it unanimous." A personal appeal ls made to everyone to become a member ln. order tbat there may be a un* universal membership. This feature and Its full significance can not be too widely emphasized. It means the enrollment of every loyal American as a factor of the greatest hunmanitar* Ian oganisation in the world. While the great purpose of the campaign ls to enroll one-dollar annual memberships a limited number of two-dollar magazine memberships together with contributing at 86.00, sustaining at 810, life at 160 and patron at 8100 will be accepted. Instead of receipts buttons will be given. It sbould bIbo be borne ln mind that no separate campaign for Red Cross Christmas Seals will be conducted this holiday season, the Roll Call Including the seal proposition which helps tbe fight against Tuberciosls. The campaign in Alliance is now being planned many ot the various committees having been named. Miss Mabel Hartzell is Roll Call Chairman with a corps of assistants as *to\- lows: Assistant roll call chairman, Mrs. W. M. Ellett; publicity chairman, Attorney Earl D. Bair; speakers chairman, Mrs. J. E. Vaughan; supply chairman, Mrs. B. F. Stanton; Junior chairman, Miss Frances Everhart The Roll Call division chairmen are the following: neighborhood, Mrs. O. B. Haggart; business section, Mrs. D. M. Armstrong; factory division Miss Gertrude Kay. The local workrs call attention to the fact that this ls an annual campaign and that there were no other ones in this cause, during the year. By the system adopted there should be no duplicating ot membership, for Instance a man employed in a shop wfll be solicited there and not in his home. Other solicitors will visit the homes snd see the remaining members of the family who are not employed ln some'lino of business to be solicited in its class. It is hoped to complete the canvass of the city within the first half of tbe period allowed for the work. An attractive line of posters and literature has been received for distribution in Alliance. This is now at tbe Red Cross rooms ln Alliance Bank building. It is urged that every citizen have the money ln readiness so that there mRy be no delay when the solicitors call. The cause ls a most worthy one and Alliance should go away "over the top" In measuring up in this exemplification of patriotism. E ON THE WHY HOME Four More Army Transports Bear Men Home From .

(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS TO THE REVIEW.) Columbus, O., Dec. 12—The city of Alliance lost before the State Utilities Commission in a decision rendered today in its effort* to fix a six cent rate for electric current furnished by the Alliance Gas & Power Company. In a new departure, the commission fixed two rates, one of 12J4 cents per kilowat hour for the first two and a half years ending January, 1919, and 8H cents for the remaining seven and a half years ending January, 1926. The higher rate is that now charged by the company. The commission also fixed a minimum charge of SO cent* per month. The commission refused to fix rates for street lighting because the ordinance was hot definite as to kind of lighting to be furnished. It found the proposed six cent rate as fixed by ordnance to be confiscatory and unjust. It also found the actual cost of producing current during the last three years to average 16% cents per kilowat hour. No sliding rate fixed by commission. However company may fix such rate under the decision. The litigation before the Public Utilities Commission beyan about three years ago when the city passed an ordinance fixing tlie rate for current to domestic consumers ^t six arid three cents. The rate then in effect was the same as at present charged 1 2 y_\ and 5 cents. The company declared these new rates established by the city, were unjust and confiscatory and appealed to the Utilities Commission. Before the ordinance was passed, W. J. Rose, then general manager of the Alliance Gas & Power Co., offered to compromise the matter with the city at nine and five cents but council and Mayor Westover refused to accept the offer. After the hearings had been started before the Utilities Commission an effort was made to compromise the matter and thus save the city and the company a large amount of money for attorney fees, expert witnesses, etc., but the eif decided to fight it out. The rates as announced late Thursday by the Utilities Commission are in excess of what the city could have obtained by compromise. The company had the advantage of high war-time costs, and their costs, as found by the commission for producing electricity were 16J4 cents a kilowat. When informed late Thursday by The Review of the commission's decision and asked for a statement of the city's future policy City Silicitor Curtis M. Shetler said: "1 will probably carry the case to the Supreme vcourt, but before making a definite announcement, I want to consult with the Board of Control, the City Council and Mayor Westover." The city was represented by the then Solicitor Arthur W. Morris and C. A. Radcliffe, Columbus attorney. The city also engaged Engineer L. W. Ballard to take an appraisal of the Alliance Gas & Power Co.'s plant and equipment and help prepare the city'si case. Later CitH Solicitor Shetler became involved in the case with the retirement of Solicitor Morris and the election of Attorney Shetler. The company had Hart & Koehler of Alliance and a firm of New York and Chicago lawyers to represent it r. M. C. I EXPERT TO * IE KOMDReOW II. C.
