Seven of Family of Nine in Bed
With Malady. Without Food,
Clothing and Fuel, Family
Near Death When Found
V/ith seven members of a family
of nine lying in bed in one room,
food and nourishment exhausted,
clothing and bedding inadequate to
keep of fthe cold, and the fuel sup
ply gone, the Red Cross Charity
Committee Wednesday morning rush
ed to their aid in an effort to
the lives of some of them who ’
critically ill and facing death.
The family living near the city
was found by Dr. iia’l Tuesday night
and without waiting for aid from the
charity board of the Red Cross se
cured clothing and food to help in
restoring the people to health. The
Red Cross c« mmittee made a visit
there Wednesday with a full rupply
of soups, oranges, flour and other
foods needed for the sick diet. They
carried und.-rwear and bed clothing
and fuel so that the people could be
made comfortable and the disease
could be fought off.
The case reported Wednesday was
the e?cond within a few weeks where
the entire family was stricken and
were without the absolute necessities
of life. Facing starvation and death
they made the*.- appeal and the need
of the charity organization came to
the forefront and aid was quickly,
It is believed the aid reached the
home in time to briug relief and
possibly assure the recovery of the
seven stricken people.
