EE BULBS REPRESENT $25:
Lights To Record Salvation Army Donations

The Best Christmas Gifts
BOOKS from WAHR'S

I

A new sight for Ann Arbor area;
residents this Christmas season is
the "Tree of Lights."
The large tree in front of the
Elks Club will represent the
amount of donations submitted toj
the Salvation Army. For every $25;
received, another bulb on the tree
will be lit.
Various colored bulbs will repre-
sent contributions by different
groups throughout the city.'Red
indicates funds raised by service
clubs, blue lights for money raised
-by University fraternities and yel-
low lights for University sororities.
White and purple lights will repre-
sent donations from the high
school and green from ladies' clubs
and groups.
Indicates Progress
"This new attraction has been
instituted not for group recogni-
tion alone, but also as an indica-
tion to the entire Ann Arbor com-
munity of advancement towards
the Salvation Army goal which has
been set at $10,000 this year," Mrs.
Arthur Trevithick, Salvation Army
secretary, explained.
As the Salvation Army antici-
pates a greater need among fami..
lies this year, the goal is slightly
higher than it has previously
been.
Aside from group and organi-
zation donations, the majority of
funds are raised by contributions
to the Kettle.' f
The Kettle drive began Novem-
ber 28 this year with kettles man-

ned regularly by Salvation Army
hired workers. To many of these
workers the income received dur-
ing the Christmas season is their
Ask Students
For Evening
The Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Fred E.
Luchs have extended an invitation
to all students remaining in Ann
Arbor over the holidays to join
them between 8 and 11 p.m.
Christmas Eve in their home.
The evening will be spent in a
"sharing of ideas on Christmas
Eve customs" by students from the
United States and foreign coun-
tries, the pastor of the First Con-
gregational Church said, with
carol singing also playing a prom-
inent part in the evening's fes-
tivities.
Students who wish to attend the
party, he said, should call the
church tc make arrangements.
The tradition, which the Luchs
began at Ohio University 20 years
ago, was originally for the benefit
of "students who could not afford
to go home," he commented, add-
ing that at that time no foreign
students were attending the uni-
versity.

only means of support, Mrs. Trevi-
thick said.
Volunteers Man Kettles
On special days volunteers from
various civic groups man the ket-
tles. Dormitories, fraternities and
sororities have also volunteered to
man the campus kettle.
A Thanksgiving collection of
canned goods by public schools in
the area will supplement monetary
donations. The goods are packed
by volunteer groups, mainly the
Girl Scouts, into food bags to be
distributed among various needy
families at Christmas.
All families that get a food bag
also receive a "toy ticket" for each
chilp; Tickets are redeemable for
toys at the Salvation Army Toy
Shop.
Provides Gift Funds
Children without families are
not forgotten by the Salvation
Army. It provides funds to the
Michigan Children's Aid Society
and the Probate Court for the
purchase of gifts for children
boarding or in juvenils homes.
"Admittedly, Christmas is often
considered a holiday for children.
The Salvation Army tries, however,
to help adults who are sometimes
forgotten during this season," Mrs.
Trevithick noted.
Gifts are also given to men in
the Veteran's Hospital and in jail,
as well as to elderly couples and
lonely residents in the Ann Arbor
area.
