Chinese Students Club


Sale of Cards To.Aid Orphans

Christmas brings to many visions
of home, a brightly lighted tree, gaily
wrapped gifts, caroling, and a feeling
of "peace on earth toward men of
good will." These things seem to
have little connection with the plight
of destitute Chinese war orphans,
lut. aid and perhaps cheer can be
bgrought to these helpless unfortu-
nates by the buying and sending of
Chinese Christmas cards. r
The cards, printed by the Chin-
ese WNomen's Relief Association of
New York, are unusual and attrac-
tive water color prints of Chinese
paintings, with greetings in Eng-
lish and Chinese. A dozen of these
5" by 7" cards can be purchased
for one dollar at any of the follow-
ing places: the Union Travel Desk,
the League, the International Cen-
ter, all women's dormitories, and
the West Quad, until Dec. 20. Any

Chinese student on campus will
afso accept orders.
The Chinese Students Club spon-'
sors the sale every year and all pro-
ceeds will be sent to the United China
Relief Committee for th6 benefit of
Chinese war orphans. The club ad-
vises that orders be placed early
while a supply of cards is on hand.
Members of the committee in
charge of the sale are: Miss Ching-
Wen Hu, H. C. Tien, and Herman
All those interested in bowling
are urged to attend the first meet-
ing of the group, to be held Mon-
day at 5 p.m. in the Woman's
Athletic Building. Anyone unable
to come should call Dorothy Flint,
