War Savings Stamps

The members of the War Service Council were also the men who handled the War Savings Stamp campaign in the township, with but slight changes. The War Savings Stamp campaign for the county as a whole, was carried on by Virtus L. Hanssen, of Monticello, as county chairman, and Frank Kenney, of Oxford, as vice-chairman. In Oxford township, Frank H. Peckosh was the township chairman of this war activity, and he did his work well. The county as a whole was asked to raise $381,000 by the sale of War Savings Stamps. Instead of that pledges to the amount of about $440,000 have been made, and this amount will be sold before the end of the year. In Oxford township, the quota was $32,000, instead of which nearly $40,000 has been sold. The members of the War Service Council, enumerated above, were also the active participants in the War Savings stamp drive, and as in all the other activities in which they were engaged, their work was done effectively, impartially and faithfully.
