PAGE SIX THE N MICHIGAN DAILY
TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 1945
Across the barren wastes of war-torn countries, wander
multitudes of dazed and destitute people. Their appalling
number, in Europe alone, is 125 million, of which more than
30 million are children. They are living in the ruins of their
homes. They are working in their ravaged fields. They are kept
alive more by courage than by food; warmed more by hope
than by clothing ... working and waiting-even as we-for
'These men, women, and cildren-innocent victims of Nazi
oppression-have been robbed of all but life itself. During five
long horror-filled years of war, the clothes on their backs have
worn to pitiful shreds and rags. Production of new clothing
has been impossible-so their need will continue long after
the end of hostilities.
Many Thousands Have Died
So scarce and scanty have their garments become that, during
winter months, deaths from exposure have equalled-and in
some areas even exceeded - deaths due to starvation and
The'clothing these people so desperately need is available.
Some of it now reposes in your own closet or attic! The rest of
it lies, forgotten, in millions of other American homes.
150 Million Pounds Needed
Look over your family's wardrobe-now. Pick out every gar-
ment you can possibly spare-serviceable used summer as
well as winter clothing and shoes-men's, women's, chil-
dren's, infants'. Every American home must give its share if
the goal of 150 million pounds is to be reached.
Remember, these people of war-torn countries will one day
-soon-be our proud partners in the building of a peaceful
world. Will you help them-now?
What YOU Can Do!
Get together all the serviceable used summer and winter
clothing you can spare. This includes: Men's, women's;
children's, and infants' wear, and shoes. Overcoats, topcoats;
suits, dresses, shirts, skirts, jackets, pants, work clothes;
gloves, underwear, sleeping garments, robes, sweaters, shawls;
and all knit goods. Also blankets, bedclothes. '
