TO PLAN RED CROSS SALE
Committee Will Meet To-night to Ai

of statewide, will be opened. Prelimi

the residence of Ohairman John Fox
>lr. Weiss, who headed the campaign
last year which plai.-ed Harrisburg
among the record-breaking cities of the
country for the number of stamps sold,
ihas called the committee to meet at
7.45 o'clock, tout because of the fact
•that it is election night, the meeting
iwill be very brief.
Harrisburg already has received its
first consignment of the Christmas
seals —300,000 —the largest number
ever sen't in the first consignment. Mr,
Weiss says lie is confident that these
seals will toe disposed of by Christ
The general cannpe.ign plan will be
Similar to that of last year, when a
score of different ideas were followed
out successfully. The public schools,
secret societies, Boy Scouts' organiza
tions, churches and the merchants of
fhe city and the suburban towns will
be among the "mediums through which
Harrisburg's general committee will
dispose of the stamps.
Chief among this year's campaign
features will be the series of "'Mer
chants Days." This plan was adopted
last year, but because of the 'brief time
the results were not so large as
might have been possible in a greater
time allowance, and for tfhjs reason the
idea will be worked out much earlier.
In brief, the plan is to set apart one day
during the crusade as a certain class of
merchants' day, such as "grocers'
day," a "bakers' day," etc., when
these merchants will be given stamps
to dispose of.
The Boy Scout's will be enlisted
especially in this work in helping to dis
tribute the seals.
