Hospital Boxes
To Be Donated
By Residences
Patients at Percy Jones Center
Will Receive Christmas Gifts
Given by University -Student
Christmas boxes for soldiers in
Percy Jones Hospital must be turned
in by 5 p.m. Monday to the Social
Director's Office in the League.
The boxes are being prepared b
campus residences at the request o:
the Washtenaw County chapter o.
the American Red Cross. Each resi-
dence has been asked by the chap.-
ter to donate one or more of th(
boxes, which will be sent as Christ-
mas :presents to bedridden soldiers at
Percy Jones.
A poll taken among the wounde(
soldiers indicated that almost 90 per
cent of these men preferred a few
substantial giftsk to many small of
useless articles. Most of the pre-
ferred gifts fell within the three tc
four dollar price bracket.
Most popular gifts were listed by
Brig. Gen. Joseph E. Bastion, com-
mander of the Percy Jones Hospita
Center, as pen and pencil sets, cig-
arette lighters, billfolds, box cameras
toilet kits, smoking tobacco, cigar-
ette cases, writing kits, pipes, leathei
belts, knives, watch straps, bec
lamps, tie pin sets, books, key cases.
and playing cards.
Although the war is over and mangy
soldiers have been discharged, the
population of the Percy Jones Hos-
pital Center is almost twice as great
as it was last Christmas. This yeai
there will be 9,000 patients at Perc3
Jones on Christmas day.
The minimum cost for each box is
$2, and the maximum is approxi-
mately $4. Each box should have a
list of contents placed on the out.
side, so that the officers at the Cen-
ter will be better able to distribute
the gifts.
All of the articles should be
wrapped as Christmas presents. Ac-
cording to Jean Gafiney, treasurer of
the Undergraduate Council and
chairman of the Christmas box proj-
ect, a card giving the names and ad-
dresses of the donors would make the
gift more interesting to those receiv-
ing them. Enclosure of the card is
optional, however.
Gen. Bastion said, 'This year, as;
last, we suggest this criterion for
gifts: 'Don't send anything you
wouldn't send a son, brother, or;
friend.'" Items which have been"
listed as undesirable include food, I
liquor, magazines, jigsaw or cross- t

Winter Sports
Require Proper
Warm Clothing
Now that the snow season has be-
un in earnest, the wise coed will be
hinking about winter sport clothes.
Ann Arbor offers a variety of sports
or enthusiasts, skiing, sledding and
obogganning on the hills in the Ar-
oretum, skating in the indoor rinks
s well as the parks.and long walks
>ver the winter countryside. Each of
hese sports has an attire that has
jeen especially designed for it . . , for f
naximum comfort and warmth.
'kiers Dress Warmly
Skiers all know that the best outfitj
s the one with the least bulk and the
nost warmth. Sleek downhill trousers
;ith wool interlinings and a poplin
acket form the best combination. If
he day is particula'fly cold, extra
weaters may be added. More warmth
s obtained by many light layers of
Iothing than by one heavy garment1
. . so pile on the jerseys and take
:)ff that sweat shirt!
Sledders andh boganners wear!
;he same clothes as the skier, but here
warmth is even more important, since
t is a relatively 'quiet' sport - (no
'ancy turns down a steep hill). Furry
nittens and socks are needed, as well
is tight-fitting boots or galoshes.
Skaters Choose Skirts
Skaters who really know their fig-
ires, will wear brief outfits in order
o give themselves enough action-
'oom. Those who are less sure of
,heir 'fourteen step' will perhaps wear!
i longer skirt, or slacks with a sweat-

THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, ever anxious to bring sweetness and
light into the drab lives of the student body, has done it again. Sparing
no expense, they have produced and distributed a set of original engravings
which would have made Gustave Dore turn green with envy. These little
gems, whimsically referred to as "identification cards," are now enriching
the life of every student on campus.
Many of us probably do not realize how signally favored we are;
after all, one doesn't see very many things like those ident cards around
today. I might go so far as to say I've never seen anything like them.
THERE HAVE BEEN many speculations as to the purpose of this yearly
gift on the part of the University. The official explanation of the
atrocity is that they are intended for us in getting books out of the library,
gaining admission to basketball games, and other innocuous activities. To
this suggestion I can only reply, with a certain touch of hauteur, that while
the University may be entirely devoid of humane spirit, I am not, and I
have stopped drawing books out of the General Library. I feel that life
there must be harrassing enough without having to look at my ident card.
