To the Managers,
Solicitors and Wor
1 take this opportunity
through the medium of the
press of expressing my sincerest
appreciation and deepest grat-
itude for the zeal, enthusiasm
and earnest efforts manifested
by the workers of all the dis-
tricts within our jurisdiction in
raising the magnificent sum of
over $60,000.00 for the Second
Red Cross War Fund. So far
as we have been able to learn,
every district has gone “Over
the Top,” and some quite hand-
somely. This work was all
done by people who were al-
ready overwhelmed with war
activities, and it most clearly
demonstrates the fact that you
want busy men and women if
you want the best service.
The number of contributors
has been quite large, which is
very gratifying, for it binds the
hearts of the people to the
Government, and proves to the
boys at the front that the peo-
ple at home are willing to sac-
rifice with them, in winning
or inser-
this war.
We have not been able to
complete the report of thels
county on account of some of
the districts being far away,
but hope to have a full report
by next week.
Again with
thanks to all
and contributors, I

Somerset County Socialists have i i nched the biggest or-
ganization drive in the history of the party in this district. C.
William Thompson, State Organizer, Socialist Party of Penn-
sylvania, arrived in the county last Tharsday and in conjunc-
tion with the officers of the local organization mapped out plans
for an active organizing campaign that will run during the
entire month of June and wil reach every nook and corner of
this district. Already Mr. Thompson’s ¥ ork is having its effect
and new members are being enrolled d: ily. :
Arrangements have been made fof geveral public meetings
w hich are announced in another column -of this paper. These
meetings will be a treat'and no forw ooking citizen should
fail'to attehd them. We need not eulo@ize Thompson. He is
one of the best. He is a young man A unusually wide experi-
ence and possesses anintimate knowled; of conditions through-
out this country and the world.
When but nine years of age he started to earn his own
living by selling newspapers on the streets of a great industrial
centre. At the age of fourteen after one year in high school,
he was compelled to give up school work entirely and entered
the employ of the Standard Oil Company, working in the head
offices at 26 Broadway, New York City.
In 1909 Mr. Thompson went to Nebraska and resumeq
his studies under direction of some of the ablest members of
the faculty of the State University at Lincoln. While pursuing
his studies he worked at all the varied jobs that come to the
hand of the self-supporting student and also found time to
take an active part in religious and social service activities.
During 1911-12 he was Assistant Boy’s Secretary in the Lincoln
Y. M. C. A, resigning to devote his whole time to newspaper,
organization and lecture work for the Socialist Party. He has
lectured for Socialism in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, New Jer-
sey, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. :
In 1913 Mr. Thompson established the York Labor News,
at York, Pa., which has since become one of the foremost So-
cialist and labor papers of the State. He is now touring Penn-
sylvania under direction of the State Committee of the Social-
ist Party.
