By Army Units

A campus-wide drive to collect
clothing for Lithuanian War Relief
was announced yesterday by Deb
Parry, chairman of the drive.
Clothes collected in the drive will
be sent to the central committee in
New York at the end of this seme-
ster. Warm clothes, such as woolen
skirts and sweaters are needed, and
may be brought to social director's
office in the League any time be-
tween now and the end of final ex-
amination week.
Ideal Time for Drive
"We think this an ideal time for
the drive," commented Miss Parry,
"because coeds are certain to find
clothes they can no longer wear when
they .clean out drawers and closets to
go home."
During the last five years, Lithu-
ania has withstood three military oc-
c upations and is once again caught
in the zig-zag of battle of the new
offensive, according to the pamphlet
issued by the United Lithuanian Re-
lief Fund of America, Inc.
Urgent Need
Continuing, the Committee empha-
sizes the urgent need for immediate
relief to the half a million people
who have lost their homes and all
their possessions, and the increasing
1 number of refugees in and fleeing
the country.
Until the present time, contribu-
tions to Lithuanian Relief have been
handled through the Red Cross and
various other agencies, but the in-
creasing numbers of suffering refu-
gees and the distressing conditions
in the country caused Lithuanian-
Americans to convene and organize
a central agency. As soon as com-
munications can be established be-
tween Lithuania and America, the
Committee will undertake the ship-
ment of clothing and other necessi-
ties collected in drives such as this.
