F. A. Winfrey, Director of the Red Cross office in St. Louis, Missouri, responds to a request by Governor Alfred Landon of Topeka, Kansas, for assistance with drought conditions in Southwest Kansas. A survey of conditions in drought stricken areas had revealed desperate conditions in at least four Kansas counties with assistance needed, in some cases, as soon as twenty-four hours. The Governor had already negotiated emergency freight rates with railroad companies operating within the state. The area seriously effected by the drought involved at least three states including Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas.
