The final SOS for sweaters for the
Send Our Sweater Drive, which is
collecting sweaters of every kind for
needy Belgians, went out today as,
the drive neared its end.
Collection boxes bearing the le-
gend, "Sloppy Joes have gone to
war", will be placed on the diagonal
in a final effort to collect as many
sweaters as possible before Wednes-
day, when the drive ends. Dormitor-
ies, league houses, and sororities may
turn in their sweaters at the League
from 1 p. m. to 5 p. m. Wednesday.
The need for filling the quota,
which has been set at 1500 sweaters,
was stressed by Mme. Betty Barzin,
noted author and Belgian refugee.
In response to the need to which
Mme. Barzin called attention, the
League organized the Send Our
Any and all kinds of sweaters will
be acceptable in this all-campus

Rumor of Nylon
By MARION SIPES
Bare legs, leg goo, thick and ugly
rayons,-are these to be banished in
place of silk and nylons?
Two alternatives to the ever pres-
ent stocking question were suddenly
thrust upon American women re-
cently-one by a department store
exhibit of silkworms and mulberry
trees, and one by a congressman
from Ohio who hinted at nylon pro-
duction being resumed soon.
Of course, there are several ques-
tion marks in both of these "solu-
tions." Do you have a backyard, 150
silkworm eggs and a spinning wheel
plus spinning ability? Those are the
requisites for one pair of silk stock-
ings, according to sericulture experts
now presiding at a display of Ameri-
can silk production.
The expert spinning the silk does
not think anyone should depend on
silkworms for next season's stockings
-spinning and processing are too
difficult-but she does think seri-
culture is a great hobby.
Nylons were also breathed into the
eager public's ear last week, but these'
were not in any tangible form. An
Akron, O. congressman slyly stood
up and said he "had heard rumors
that nylon production would be re-
sumed in 60 days." He though "poli-
This week's League Surgical Dress-
ings Honor Roll consists of four
league houses and three sorority
houses, according to Frances Gold-
berg, publicity chairman.
Augsberger Houses led the league
houses with four hours, while Cordes,
Pray and Wood Houses followed with
three hours contributed by each.
Delta Delta Delta led the sorority
houses with 21%/ hours. Alpha Delta
Pi was second with 21 hours, and
Kappa Delta third with 17 hours.
The League Surgical Dressing Un-
it is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednes-
day through Friday. Houses are
asked to contribute a specified num-
ber of hours. "Individual workers
must be had in addition to those
sent by houses, however," Miss Gold-
berg said. "We hope coeds will con-
tinue to support the unit in order to
fill the present quota before final
examinations begin," she added.
All women who will be seniors andJ
second-semester juniors during the
summer term are eligible for posi-

These petitions should be filled out

asm and well-laid plans for the suc-
cessful functioning of the particular
position are the only prerequisites for
women interested in petitioning.
Because of the increased enroll-

staffed Women's War Council for the
ensuing summer semester.
