KALONA, WASHINGTON COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, Disconnected MARCH 26, 1942 (WNU Service) Name Workers In "- Defense Bond Drive An intensive campaign for the sale of Defense /~onds and Stamps has been organized in Washington county and Atty. A. E. Baldridge, county chairman of the drive was in Kalona Monday evening and met with the township chairman, Dean Feldman and his associates on the local committee who are H. V. Beck, H. L. Walker, C. L. Drol- linger, C. C. Shimon, V. D. Davis, E. J. Hesselschwerdt, V. D. Hoch- stetler, Ferd Skola, Geo. A. Eg- lin and George Fry. The rest of the township will be taken care of by the chairman and Carl Ander- son, Roscoe Kolosiek, ~tanley Vo- dieka, Ernest Kloepfer and Clif- ford Sommers. County chairman A. E. Bald- ridge stated that the quota for Washington county was $1,620,000 and if the amount was st~bscrib. ed to one hundred per cent it would mean an average sales of over $80 for every man, woman and child in the county. He also said that any bonds purchased since January 1, 1942 would be credited to the county quota total. Committemen will go out soon as possible to make a house to house canvas campaign. The workers will not actually sell bonds and stamps but will take pledges for the purchase of these on a weekly or monthly basis or whatever arrangement the purch- aser wishes to make. These pledges will be taken in triplicate, one copy will be sent to the treasury department, one to the state sales director and the third being retained by the pur- chaser. It is suggestod by the com- mittee that each family decide in advance how much they can con- tribute so they can make their pledge when the cartvasser calls. Mr. Baldridge sa~d he was impressed with the earnest spirit of the workers and he expects the same kind of response Will be re- oeived from the people all over the county and he urges that everyone pledge every dollar pos- sible.
