U' High Plans
School Children To Help
Needy Local Families
Less fortunate families of Ann Ar-
bor will be. provided with a more
plentiful Christmas this year, through
the efforts of University High School
students. During th past month the
Moderri Social Problems class, co-
operating with the Family Welfare
Bureau and the Salvation Army, has
worked out a plan whereby each
homeroom will outfit an anonymous
family, providing them with food,
clothing, money and toys.
The high school has carried out this
program for five years, with the pur-
pose of teaching its students to share
with others, and to meet important
social problems. With this in mind,
the relationship between benefactor
and recipient will be kept impersonal
and family names will not be revealed.
Although eacp homeroom works in-
dividually to outfit a family, the plan
is unifiedi by the exchange of extra
goods through a general clearing
house. All articles are repaired, pack-
aged and labeled, before a University
truck carries them to the Family Wel-
fare Bureau where families will ob-
tain them. All footwear is taken to
the Salvation Army headquarters to
