To Celebrate



Rescue workers are shown probing the wreckage of two Atlantic Coast Line passenger streamliners
which collided in a snowstorm early Thursday morning near Lumberton, N.C. More than .100 passengers,
including at least 37 members of the armed forces, were killed and nearly 200 others were injured. Bodies
were taken to a Red Springs mortuary, from which reporters were barred by Military Police. Injured
were taken to Fayetteville and Lumberton hospitals and to Laurinburg-Maxton Army air base hospital.

The boys in blue, mail ialriers- d

come into their own during the holi- f
day rush.V
With a 30 per cent increase in theo
mail over last year, Oswald Cook,
postmaster, reported that 25 tem-
porary employees have been addedc
to the postal payroll during the1
Christmas season. He added thats
the mail, in general, has been 30t
per cent heavier than last year. t
"People have been cooperatingr
quite well. The rush came about a
week early this year and there should
be no last minute run on the post
office," said Mr. Cook. "However,
we request that all Christmas mail-
ing be completedby late this after-
noon. There is a terrific strain on
the railroads this year and this is
one way we can do our part."
In order to assist the public in
mailing Christmas packages and
cards today, the Maynard street pos-
tal station will remain open until
6 p.m., instead of closing at noon.1
Hours have also been extended at
the main branch. The postal win-1

Approximately 1,300 hours have
been spent by the volunteers at the
Surgical Dressing Unit during this
Although the total seems impres-
sive, Jean Whittimore, unit chair-
man, stated that the number of hours
is below the minimum recommended
r for such a large campus. "However,
we are expecting a much greater res-
ponse after the holidays," Miss Whit-
timore added. "The freshmen women
will be more adapted to campus life,
and will be able to plan their time
more effectively to fit in with war
work, while the upperclassmen will
probably be more sure of their hours."
"The casualty list which was re-
cently published should be a stark
revelation to the coeds of the need
for surgical dressings," Miss Whitti-
more continued.
For the next two weeks the League
Unit will be closed. All volunteers
staying in Ann Arbor will be welcome

There will be delivery of parcel
