Peoples of Liberated Nations
Need Useable Castoff Clothes


UNRRA Asks American Aid
For Thirty Million Children
"What can you spare that they can
wear?" is the slogan which sets the
tempo for the nation-wide clothing
drive which opened April 1 and will
continue throughout the month, un-
der the sponsorship of the United
Nations Relief and Rehabilitation
More than 30,000,000 children a-
lone in liberated or to be liberated
nations in Europe are without ade-
quate clothing. UNRRA's appeal isj
for good serviceable used clothingI
which will enable sufferers in war
devastated areas to reconstruct their
homes and towns.
Clothing Must Come from America
Because the misery and poverty of
war has not touched America, it isj
easy to overlook the desperate need
for clothing and supplies in Europe.
But clothing for war sufferers must
come from America. Scarcely any
new clothing has been available at
any price in Europe since the out-
break of war, and much of the cloth-
ing families were able to salvage has
been stolen by ransacking enemy
More of our allies in war-ravaged
Europe are dying from lack of cloth-
ing than froni lack of food. Although
articles contributed to the drive need
not be in perfect repair, they must be
in condition to be useful to the wear-
Cotton clothing must be washed
but not ironed and all articles given
in pairs, such as shoes or stockings
must be tied together. Both winter
and summer garments are needed.
Method of Shipping
Clothing received in local collec-
tion depots will be sorted and shipped
to regional warehouses, wliere it will
be vacuum cleaned, resorted, and
pressure packed to conserve space.
The bales will be disinfected while in
the holds of ships in transit to Eur-
The clothing will be distributed
free and without discrimination to
the needy and destitute men, women,
and children in some 44 allied and
liberated countries. Giving to this
drive is not charity, it is simply a
way of making up in part for the
tremendous sacrifices European peo-
ple have made to spare America from
the shock of a total war.

Waves Aboard;
All Is Not Welt
When the recent order permitting
sea duty for WAVES became effect-
ive, complications arose, for although
a ship may be "she" to its crew, when
naval architects designed her it was
strictly for a man's war.
Proudly junior officers showed the
first Wave aboard their ship the
bridge and explained to her the
range-finders. They were taken
aback, however, when she timidly
asked about the powder room. An
old sea dog saved the day by taking
the young thing on a tour through the
ship, and by the time they returned
top deck, swarming carpente'rs and
plumbers had rectified the over-sight.
Holes in Stockings
Can Be Eliminated
By Care of Heels
Holes in the heels of stockings are
second only to runs as a cause of
sending stockings to the rag-bag.
This sort of wear is increased greatly
by rough skin on the heels, and many
stockings could be saved by keeping
this area of the skin smooth.
The proper time for caring for the
skin on the heels is during the daily
bath. Soap should be rubbed on a
brush and the heel brushed for sev-
eral minutes. This brushing helps to
soften callouses and removes many
of the harsh scales which cling to
the skin. The feet should be carefully
rinsed and dried.

Suits Are High
In Popularity
Among Coeds
Suits are leading the spring pa-
rade this year, and coeds are finding
them comfortable, attractive, and
practical. For dates, classes, week-
ending, or Sunday dinner the suit is
always the "right thing."
This spring many of the Ann Ar-
bor stores are featuring comfortable
wools in pastel shades. Plain car-
digan styles as well as, the more
fancy dressmaker suits are proving
very popular with Michigan women.
Gabardines, too, are receiving a
generous share of attention, and most
coeds know that a gabardine can't
be beat for comfort and wear. These
suits are practical, too, from another
standpoint-they stay looking fresh
and well-pressed under conditions
which would discourage and unpleat
other wools.
One of the top-notches in the seas-
on's suit hit parade belongs to the
checked wools. These attractive, gay
checks in almost all of the spring
colors are being seen in increasing
. numbers, and their popularity is cer-
tainly well-deserved. The checked
skirt may also be worn with a jacket
E of a harmonizing color.
Suits are, indeed, as much a part
of spring in Ann Arbor as are the
rainy days, the May Festival, or the
campus bicyclers.

Daily washing of underthings is a
more sensible approach to the sub-

in Saturday afternoons -to take care

Fabric gloves need to be washed

be washed after each wearing and

cately scented.
