$1.00 PLUS $1.00 EQUALS $2.00

But one annual membership plus another annual membership for the same person does not equal a Magazine membership. We are receiving many letters from persons who took out two annual memberships during the Christmas Drive and expect to receive the RED CROSS MAGAZINE thereby. We are sorry but it cannot be done.

If you joined the Red Cross during the Christmas Drive as an annual member and wish to have your membership raised to the Magazine class, you may do so by handing an additional dollar for that purpose immediately to the secretary or treasurer of your local branch or chapter. Please do not send the money to us. It is necessary for the Chapter records that the additional dollar be sent through it. Your name will be forwarded to us and you will receive twelve issues of the Magazine beginning with the one current when your name reaches the Magazine office.

ATTENTION, CHAPTER AND BRANCH OFFICIALS

The value of this Magazine to the Red Cross membership in keeping the members informed, interested and enthusiastic concerning Red Cross work is obvious. It is your magazine and is endeavoring to tell by pictures, stories and articles how your money is being spent and how your bandages and surgical dressings are stopping wounds and fighting death.

Annual members of the American Red Cross may become Magazine members and receive the RED CROSS MAGAZINE for one year by paying an additional dollar to their local Chapter or Branch within three months. after the original dollar was paid.

May we suggest that you call this opportunity to the attention of your annual members if you have not already done so. The Superior, Wisconsin Chapter, for example, has inserted the following notice in a daily paper:

Red Cross Magazine for 1918

This splendid publication should be in every home. All members of the Red Cross are entitled to receive it for one year on payment of One Dollar ($1.00) in addition to their annual dues and presentation of their membership card at this office.

AMERICAN RED CROSS.

Such a notice, together with a circular or personal canvass should produce excellent results. There ought to be one Magazine member in every family. If you will try to put one there, we will try to keep the whole family so interested that you will be able to get more work out of them.

CONCERNING DUPLICATE COPIES

There have been received at the office of the RED CROSS MAGAZINE hundreds of thousands of names of
magazine members, and some people who have contributed $2.00 or more at various places are occasionally put on
the list more than once. In this way they have received more than one copy of the RED CROSS MAGAZINE.

As fast as possible these duplicates have been removed from our stencils. We shall be grateful to any reader
who will fill out the accompanying blank and return it to us, indicating where a duplicate copy has been sent.
We are anxious that every magazine member of the Red Cross shall have and read the magazine and trust that
it may keep them in touch with this great movement; but we do not wish to waste a single copy. We ask the
coöperation of all the readers to eliminate all waste.

THE RED CROSS MAGAZINE, Garden City, New York.

I have received duplicate copies of the RED CROSS MAGAZINE addressed as follows, which you have my permission to take off the list:
