- The Leader promotes Red Cross Day in Orange, to be held on 9 May
Wake up Orange. Do your duty and don’t fail. You cannot go to the war, you are not fighting in the trenches, you are living in peace and prosperity away from shells and bullets away from all the tragedies of war. Do your duty to your country. Let every man, woman and child help to make this the biggest day ever Orange has seen. Farmers, graziers, orchardists, must all fall right into line and “pay—pay—pay.” Do not fail the men at the front, who must be nourished and cared for. Then who can do it better than the great Red Cross Society? Welling ton Red Cross Day brought forth £2500 from a generous public. Cannot Orange do better? Of course it can. Of your generosity give what you can on Thursday, 9th.
