Boxes Packed For War Veterans


This week the chance was offered
tos the feminine population of the
campus to show off its proverbial
ingenuity in choosing the "right
gift." The various women's resi-
dences were asked to fill boxes for the
wounded veterans at Percy Jones
Already the girls have proved their1
stalents by turning in over seventy-
five boxes to the Undergraduate Of-
fice at the League. The deadline is
A tour of the campus' residence
halls would provide a spur to any
Santa Claus. Martha Cook is proudly
displaying a table piled high with
forty boxes, many of which were
donated by individual girls.

Betsy Barbour is really going femi-
nine by adding the personal touch to
its boxes-individually designed for
specific types of patients-such as a
box for the soldier deprived of the
use of his hands.
Stockwell has already prepared
fifty-five boxes, while each of the
eleven corridors of Mosher is con-
tributing two or three boxes valued
at $6 each-far in excess of the $2
minimum. The student nurses living
at Couzens Hall have taken time off
from their hospital duties to pack
five extra large boxes. Jordan Hall's
freshmen have set a quota of twenty
boxes, but that didn't stop several of

the girls from filling extra individual
Most of the sororities are planning
to donate a box for every two mem-
bers. Sigma Delta Tau has already
turned in eighteen.
Deborah Parry, '45, chairman of
the drive urged that all boxes be
turned in as soon as possible, so that
the Undergraduate office at the
League will not be swamped with a
few hundred boxes at a quarter to
five on Friday.
Miss Parry also asked that a list
of contents be fastened securely on
the outside of the box with tape orI
glue, as the lists have fallen off manyI
of those already turned in.

Prof. Palmer A. Throop, of the
Department of History, will deliver
the opening address of the French
lecture series at 4:10 p.m. today in
Rm. D, Alumni Memorial Hall.
Speaking on "La Pr6dication de la
Croisade," Prof. Throop will discuss
the determined efforts of the Papacy
to revive the popularity of the Cru-
sades. Interest in the religious move-
ment was waning in the 13th century,
and the methods used to arouse pub-
lic interest in France will be dis-
cussed by the speaker.
The lectures, sponsored by Le Cer-
cle francais, are open to the public.
Tickets may be purchased at the
Carols and receive a Christmas mes-
sage from President Ruthven. The
program will be given in the com-
munity. fashion typical of the old
American Christmas.
Research Club: The December
meeting of the Club will be held in
the Amphitheatre of the Rackham
Building, Wednesday evening at eight
o'clock, Dec. 20. Professor Walter A.
Reichart will present a paper on "The
Reception of Gerhart Hauptmann's
Work in America" and Dr. James B.
Griffin a paper on "The Growth and
Development of Indian Cultures in
the eastern United States."

to sp~end Christmas with two Mrar-

year-Fold daughter who was bornt
just after Charlie left the states.
"If I get there to see my kid at
long last and spend the holidays
with both of them it'll be the best
Christmas present I ever had."
Charlie grinned happily.
Reno E. Schnabel of Tripp, S.D.,
thought he was in trouble too. He'd
just been made a sergeant and was
busy sewing on his new stripes when
a company runner came up and said,
":Report to the old man."
"Oh Oh!" moaned Reno. "Won-
der what I've done now. Bet I lose
these stripes before I even get 'em
sewed on."
Fifteen minutes later he was
packing his bag with a big grin on
his face.
Reno is the Johnny-come-lately

"only" 22 months now but nobody
begrudged dim his furlough after
the African, Sicilian, French, Bel-

rpaigns-plus, two wounds.

seas, wounds etc., also applied to Pfe.
