Voscoe Call, Box Elder County Red Cross chairman from Norman E. Davis of Washington, D. C, congratulating the county and its earnest volunteers on their early success in the 1944 Red Cross fund campaign. He also highly complimented Mr. Call on his assurance that the county would continue its efforts during the month of March to over subscribe the chapter goal. The cooperation of the Box Elder County Commissioners, who voted $500 to the fund at their last meeting, and a pledge of an equal amount from the Brigham City mayor and city council made it possible to report the county over the top, in what is believed to be first place among the counties of the state and possibly of the nation. Mr. Call, in stating that the drive would continue until March 31st set a goal of $20,000 by that date. He made it plain that every one who has not yet subscribed should make it his duty to do so before the closing date.

L n, FINAL TRIBUTE PAID TO MRS. FERN C. LARSEN Funeral services for Mrs. Fern C. Bennett Larsen, 12, were conducted who died March Thursday in the Elwood ward chapel, i The large crowd of friends and relatives, who gathered, inspite of betransportation difficulties, spoke the love and good will of her friends better than words could do. These people came from many towns in southern Idaho and north-eUtah. The services were conducted by Bishop W. E. Fridal. The open-in- g and closing numbers were by the ward choir, "Sister Thou Wast Mild and Lovely," and "Oh, My Father," conducted by Ada Fridal with Lottie Munns accompanying at the organ. Special musical numbers were a solo, "In the Garden," by Walter Wuthrich, accompanied by Mrs. Ross Beckstead; a violin solo, "Consolation," by Ross Beckstead, accompanied by Mrs. Beckstead; and a duet, "Compensation," by Mrs. Helen Hansen and Alden Thompson, accompanied by Mrs. Thompson. A life, long friend of Mrs. Larsen, Marinus Hansen, and Bishop Crane of Mink Creek, Idaho, were the speakers. Each spoke of the fine character of Mrs. Larsen and her great desire to live to rear her family and be a real "help mate" to her companion. The beautiful thought was expressed that perhaps such a young understanding mother was needed to help care for the many innocent children in Europe and the Islands of g the sea, who are starving and from lack of proper care and disease. Her children, though of tender years, are left in good hands and will be tenderly cared for. Bishop Fridal was the concluding speaker, who bore testimony of Fern's strong faith and desire to live righteously. Invocation was offered by Reginald Hunsaker and the benediction by A. P. Hansen. Interment was in River View Cemetery, with Charles Christensen dedicating the grave. s m die-in- Miss Elma Romer, of Salt Lake spent Sunday visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Romer, of El- wood.
