However, campaign leader Lieutenant Colonel James S. Godwin emphasized that the campaign target is 100 percent. As of Tuesday there was a thirty-percent participation rate on the NATO base. Such support is needed by the 13 Inter- national Service Agencies, the American National Red Cross, and 16 National Health Agencies for their programs of wide-ranging service to millions of persons. The 1978 campaign slogan, "Make some- one Happy through Your CFC," indicates the person-to-person aspect of the drive, individual donors to agencies which aid people in a personalized approach. The annual campaign offers an ease of contribution. Participants may choose either an on-the-spot gift or pledge through the payroll allotment system, with deductions begining in January 1978 paychecks. All agencies operate on a non-profit basis. The overall CFC Campaign Overseas Area is carried out with an overhead of only two percent. Gifts are divided among the ISA, American Red Cros Cross, and the National Health Services. Make a date with EDITH tonight Every single day in the United States there is an average of 2,771 fires which cost more than four billion dollars a year an^ take nearly 12,000 human lives. In an effort to, first of all,save a life,and secondly,keen fire damage to a minimum the Nato base fire department has been conducting an extensive awareness campaign during the past few weeks in conjunction with the U.S. observance of National Fire Prevention week, Oct. 9 - 15. Today, the last day of fire preven- tion week, the fire department plans to end the week-long effort by participating in "Operation EDITH" at 5:30 p.m. The fire department asks that you make a .ate date with EDITH - Operation EDITH, which is a fire escape project that means £xit Drills In _The Jome. Neither a wise old aunt or a fairy godmother, EDITH nevertheless can save the family in an emergency if everyone cooperates with "her" now. This involves having each person in the household take part in Operation EDITH. To prepare for EDITH, sit down now with the entire family and plan step-by-step what to do to get everyone out of the house or apartment quickly and safely during a fire. Then, when EDITH arrives tonight, actually hold a "rehearsal," using the pre-planned household alert signal, al- ternate exits from bedrooms, and assem- bly point outdoors, well away from the burning building. The fire department will be touring the base with their trucks and sirens checking the success of the operation. Everyone should get to know EDITH. It's worthwhile becoming acquainted v/ith Exit Drills In The Home because EDITH literally can mean the difference be- tween life and death during a fire emergency. Tutoring program needs an hour of your time The time of the year has arrived when the leaves are turning colors, footballs are in the air and the school year is in full gear. Do you remember the days of gruel- ing math problems, tricky chemistry questions and conjugating verbs in French? And, do you remember how easy it was once someone took the extra time to sit with you and explain it? The base Tutoring Program is asking for your help. Our community has a great deal to offer. Let's offer some of our knowledge to the students in the Dependents' Schools. They don't ask for the world, only an hour or two of your time a week. No matter what your specialty-Alge- bra, English, Chemistry, whatever-take a minute to find out about the tutoting program. Give Lt. Bill Marlett of the 57 FIS a ca.U (ext. 4584). You might even enjoy an evening helping a young student iron out problems with a par- ticular subject.
