[First Presidency and Quorum of Twelve]
Pres[iden]t. [Joseph F.] Smith informed the Council that Pres[iden]t. Richard W. Young had suggested to the First Presidency the advisability of the Church making an effort to collect subscriptions in behalf of the Red Cross, the amounts thus subscribed to be used at the discretion of the Society. The suggestion was that it be announced generally that a portion of our regular monthly fast donations be set aside for the Red Cross, and that our people generally be invited to increase their donations, the idea being that the Church would get credit for the amounts thus raised instead of the individuals, and that therefore individual members who might be asked for donations might consistently answer that they were contributing through the Church in the way suggested.
