Busy Raising An
All American Fund
Camps of Royal Neighbors of
America, located throughout the
United States, including Borger,
are participating in the society’s
campaign to raise a Roval Neigh-
bor All American fund, which
will be turned over to the Am-
erican Red Cross to assist and
further its blood plasma program '
in the present national emer-
The campaign, commemorating
| the 47th anniversary of the so-
ciety which occurs March 21. 1942,
opened Feb. 19 and closes May 1.
The call for the All American
fund was issued by the executive
council from the supreme offices
in Rock Island, III., to the 50(5.-
357 members and 6,01)6 camps of
Royal Neighbors of America.
A nucleus for the fund was
created immediately when mem-
bers of the executive council
i The blood plasma program of
| the Red Cross is regarded as a
highly important life-saving ser-
vice in time of war. The Red
Cross estimates that it will need
1 in 1942 a million pints of blood
for transfusions for war casual-
ties and that the cost will be
more than $3,000,000.
With the campaign for the All
' American fund under way, Royal
Neighbors of America reports it
has completed an all-out nation-
S al defense and patriotic program
: The first steo was taken in 1941
when the society invested $50,000
in national defense bonds. Anoth-
er purchase of $50.00 worth of j
defense bonds has been made for ,
1942. this sum being the limit |
that can be bought in any calen-
dar vear bv a corporation or in-
In addition, the society has
adopted a plan whereby em-
ployes of the supreme office are
making regular savings toward
the purchase of defense bonds
through salary deductions.

• We, The Women
By RUTH MILLETT
Educational leaders, civic lead-
ers, and just plain parents of
White Plains, N. Y„ arc concerned
over the problem of whether frat-
ernities and sororities have a
place in public high schools.
Their attention was focused on
the problem by a local tragedy.
An 18-year-old girl who found
out that her own sorority meant
to “blackball” her sister felt so
humiliated over it that she killed
In your own community there
has probable never been and nev-
er will be any such tragic inci-
dent connected with high school
sorority and fraternity affairs.
But that is no reason why —
if you are a parent — vou should-
n’t feel that it is your respon-
sibility to find out something
about the sororities and frater-
nities in your public schools and
decide whether they have any
business in schools that are sup-
ported by taxpayers.
SOME PARENTS ARE
The trouble, of course, is that
if your Johnny or your Mary be-
longs to a Greek letter organiza-
tion you are probably pretty com-
placent about the situation. Your
child belongs—so you aren't much
acquainted with how the child
who wasn't voted into a frater-
Of course, you may complain
to your friends that high school
sorority and fraternity dances last
until ridiculously late hours, that
it is disgraceful what it costs
to keep a child in high school
these days, what with fraternity
dues, special assessments for par-
ties, national conventions, etc. But
since your child is in — there is
probably just a little bit of boast-
ing behind your complaining.
NO ROOM FOR
That is why the sororities and
fraternities have been allowed to
exist in public high schools all
these years. The only parents who
kicked about them were the par-
ents of children who weren't
asked to belong — so their at-
tacks on high school secret so-
cieties could alwavs be written
off as “sour grapes."
But now' that we have come
to see how important it is that our
young people grow up with an un-
derstanding of. and love for, dem-
ocracy, mavbc all parents of high
school-aged kids, whether their
sons and daughters wear frater-
nity pins or happen to be cm the
< utsidc looking in, ought to make
a study of the situation.
If they do, it may be thev will
decide there is no place in Amer-
ica's public schools for organized
snobbery — especially in 1942.
