he is entitled to full measure of credit for the fine part performed by the
speakers' department.
Lining up the forces of Wisconsin women to a point where they worked
shoulder to shoulder and in perfect accord with the men, Mrs. W. L. Roach,
chairman of the women's council, achieved the objective of giving the
women of the state an important part in the United War Work Campaign.
The campaign officials are frank in their expression of gratitude for the
fine part played by the women and Mrs. Roach performed a splendid serv-
ice in helping to unify their forces.
To H. F. Lindsay of Milwaukee, state treasurer of the Y. M. C. A., who
is officiating in a similar capacity in the United War Work Campaign, be-
falls the task of collecting approximately $4,543,000 subscribed so gener-
ously in Wisconsin. This is a task that will require many months to com-
plete. He was selected for this unenviable position by reason of his
peculiar fitness for it. He is one of Milwaukee's leading business men and
his influence and ability also had a large part in that city in raising 132
per cent of its quota. Besides his duties as state treasurer in this cam-
paign Mr. Lindsay officiated as a district chairman of the district which
raised the largest amount of all the districts in the state.
The thirteen field secretaries who assisted district and county chairmen
in solidifying the various units are deserving of much credit although
figures and statistics, to say nothing of actual results, are prone to over-
look them. They were in a sense the "silent" factor in the campaign, yet
their splendid service is deeply appreciated and fully recognized by the
state headquarters. The field secretaries who served the campaign without
charge to the United War Work Campaign were George F. Werner, Apple-
ton; Wallace G. Wright, Superior; J. C. Manville, Barksdale; Joe Steiner,
Beloit; Reuben F. Trane, La Crosse; W. H. Babcock, Eau Claire; W. H.
Patey, Neillsville; H. F. Tormohlen, Appleton: the Rev. Henry Harris,
Madison; F. 0. Leiser, Madison; W. 1. Wones, Milwaukee. Besides these,
rendering splendid service, on the employed field force, were Mrs. Lucina G.
Irish of Oak Park, Illinois, and A. S. Magann of Madison.
Louis C. Bradshaw, the capable general secretary of the Racine Y. M. C.
A., who served as campaign director, devoted his best efforts to the drive.
His loyalty to the great cause was a big asset to the campaign. The gen-
erosity of the Racine Y. M. C. A. in releasing him for the United War Work
Campaign is appreciated by the state committee.
Miss Clara S. Roe, director of woman's work, was a young dynamo.
She threw her full energy and experience into the work and to her be-
longs in a large measure the credit for so fully enlisting the womanhood of
Wisconsin in the campaign.
Miss Marguerite 1. Merriman, a young newspaper woman of Moline,
Illinois, who acted as associate publicity director to Mr. Orbach, shares
any credit that might be deserved by the publicity department. Her keen
sense for news and her ability to put "punch" into news articles figured
largely in the ready acceptance by editors of the news matter sent out
from the campaign headquarters.
Miss Amanda C. Nelson, who was affiliated with Professor A. B. Hall in
the student campaign, was a vital factor in the success of that drive. Prior
to taking up her duties at Madison she was connected with the student
division of the Young Women's Christian Association of the Central De-
