March 29, 1934

A move toward a clean-up and sanitation plan having as its objective a permanent policy of cleanliness and sanitation for Ozona was initiated at the regular meeting of the Ozona Woman's Club when the civic committee of that organization was instructed to offer the club's cooperation to the Commissioners Court in formulating such a plan.

In years past, the Woman's Club sponsored the annual cleanup campaign. Downtown streets littered with paper and other rubbish, residential areas beset with flying papers and trash drew criticism of club members and the action toward a clean-up and some plan of a permanent policy for keeping the town clean was taken. Mrs. B. B. Ingham is chairman of the civic committee and will work with the Commissioners on the project.

Audiences attending the presentation of the movie-extravaganza, “This Is the Army,” at the Ozona theatre Thursday and Friday evening, contributed a total of $88.04 to the American Red Cross when the plates were passed through the audience after showing of a special Red Cross film and news of Red Cross activities.

The special Red Cross theatre collection was a part of a statewide effort on the part of theatre owners to further the current Red Cross War Fund drive. The contribution by the theatre audience was turned in to the local chapter’s War Fund drive, raising the total contribution in that campaign to $3,190.91 against the chapter goal of $2,600.

On the first night of the showing, the collection plates contained $59.66 and the second night’s crowd contributed $23.38.
