YWCA DRIVE AT MEDFORD IS “OVER THE TOP”
Guaranteed $ 3000 Quota at a Glance Campaign – The number of contributors tripled – Thanks to those who gave help.
The YWCA is at the top! The $ 3,000 sought is pledged and the YWCA in its more comprehensive program is insured for another year. The whole city is delighted that the campaign was carried out and that the citizens showed their confidence in the work of the girls to the point of giving so happily to the organization.
The YWCA would like to thank Ms. HG Wortman, Chair of the Finance Committee, and her committee; Mr. Mann, the chairman of the initial donation committee and his assistants; Ms. Hubert Clark, president of the advertising committee, and her committee; Ms. Corning Kenly and the Colony Club; captains and all workers; especially Gladys Bridges and the other business girls, who in the short time they had to work accomplished so much, and the public who put him “on top”.
The Mail Tribune deserves the highest appreciation for its interest and assistance. The many stores that set up the lovely windows of the YWCA and those who donated advertising space warmly thank the YWCA
The point that gives the greatest satisfaction in this campaign is the fact that three times more people gave this year than last year, which means that three times more people believe in the YWCA of Medford this year than the last year. The average gift of people of small means was wonderful, in many cases signifying a sacrifice to give.
The committee would also like to thank the Walker Auto Co., for allowing the YWCA Headquarters to be in their building. In fact, Medford might just be proud of the way its citizens have worked and donated, to put this campaign for the YWCA above! It will be with great regret but pleasant memories that Miss Sarvay, the worker of the YWCA of New York, will leave for the East on Monday.
LOCAL AND STAFF
Medford and Jacksonville were crazy about strawberries today, so to speak, due to the fact that luscious fruits sell for less than in the past and housewives fear the home-grown supply will run out. before they have enough for their canning needs. Today’s supply could not begin to meet the great demand and housewives were annoying grocers and the marketplace to take their orders for future delivery. In the public market alone, around seven hundred cases could have been sold today. Even the peasants came to town to buy strawberries. A commercial dealer who was supposed to sell his entire supply in the public market today sold 100 cases for $ 175 to a dealer in Klamath Falls who came into town last night in a car truck to take them away.
