The Salida Daily Mail, Nov. 15, 1944: 

Chaffee county now has more than $3,000 of its quota of $4,000 of the 1944 United War Chest Drive, it was announced Wednesday morning by Glen Lamberg, who is trying to get the area combined for a grand push to hit the 100 percent mark by Saturday night.

A show at the Elks will close the Saturday program with the proceeds going toward the drive.

Over fifty of Colorado’s counties now have met or exceeded the War Drive quota.
