The best thing to be done, the
Bureau decided, was to let the par-

by the Bureau, agreed, and volun-
teered to sponsor a Goodfellow
Drive and climax it by putting out
a special paper on a night when
they did not ordinarily work. This

most determined campaign took
place in 1938, when the committee
boasted of its lineup of "name"

four teachers standing shoulder

Attention Goodfellow Salesmen:
Here are your instructions for the Goodfellow Sale to-
Goodfellow Dailies will be sold from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Those coeds who have signed to sell fron 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
should report to the Student Publications Bldg., 420 Maynard,
before 7:45 a.m. to pick up their supply of Goodfellow Dailies
and buckets for coins.
All other salesmen should report directly to their assigned
posts promptly at their scheduled time. No salesman is to leave
her post until someone comes to take her place. Materials are
to be turned over to each succeeding salesman. The last sales-
man leaving the post at .3 p.m. should bring her remaining
papers and receipts to the Student Publications Bldg.
Periodic collections of receipts will be made by the Good-
fellow Committee. Paper stocks will also be replenished at that
Any questions or difficulties should be reported immed-
iately to the Goodfellow desk at the Daily, phone 2-3241.

mented and usually supplanted by
students who stayed at their posts
despite freezing weather and pouring I
One year a salesman followed about
by a gang of small boys summoned
his executive ability and directed the
erection of a large pile of snowballs.
Thereafter the boys waited anxiously
for someone to refuse to buy a paper.
For many years the organization
displaying the highest cooperative
spirit was awarded a trophy, which,
was won for the first three times by
Senior Society.
Peculiarly enough, there was no
seventh annual drive, as an ap-
parently un-mathematical Daily
editor held a second sixth one. And
this drive, in case you hadn't
noticed, is the second tenth.
The original idea of using the
money to help people at Christmas
time developed into an attempt to
help people throughout the year.
Ever since 1935 a substantial por-
tion has been given to the Family
Welfare Bureau, now known as the
Ann Arbor Family and Children's
Service. The rest of it has been
shared by such .organizations as the
Social Service Department of the
University Hospital, the Goodwill
Fund, and, since 1942, the Textbook
Lending Library. The good it has
done through these organizations is
Goodfellow money has been spent
to buy glasses for students who
needed but couldn't afford them;
to give a student enough money to
enable her to quit work until her
broken leg had healed; to provide
counseling and material aid for
families which badly needed it. It
has bought a dress for a little girl

ashiaimed to apjea in a school pro-
;raa in her sh.abiby clothes; it has
purichased hew shoes and rubbers
for a child who constantly tried to
hide his feet because of his worn-
out sneakers. It gave self-respect
to people spiritually broken by the
trials of the depression.
Perhaps the most unusual case in
which it helped was that of Dr. Kath-
erine Crawford.
Dr. Crawford, the first woman
Negro doctor to be graduated from
the University, had been so defeated
by prejudice and misfortune that in
her eightieth year she was found
living all alone in a miserable Ann
Arbor flat. Out of her $30 a month
income she had to pay $25 for her un-
heated rooms. Furthermore she had
difficulty in caring for herself because
she had injured both ankles in a fall.
Goodfellow money and help
placed her in a home with friends,
bought her special shoes so that she
could walk without pain, bought her
a radio, and did what it could to
brighten her last years.
In hundreds of ways the Goodfel-
low Fund, to which you have just
contributed, gives help to those who
need it.

A plea for rooms for pastors who
wish to attend the conference of the
Michigan Council of Churches and
Christian Education Jan. 21, 22, 23
has been issued by the University Ex-
tension Service.
Insufficient accommodations else-
where make it imperative that 125
rooms in private homes be offered the
pastors. Anyone who could give a
room to a pastor during the three
days should call 4121, extension 354.

Tourmrey 'Co fhii
While Michigan coeds will m 0uuiheI
to play in WAA's intramural volley-
ball tournament, it has been an-
nounced that an even larger basket-
ball tournament will get underway
during the week of Dec. 31.
All athletic managers have been re-
quested to hold meetings for the pur-
pose of deciding the number of teams
they will enter and the time prefer-
ence for each team.
Since schedules for the tournament
must be made before it commences,
time preferences must be turned in
by tomorrow. They may be placed
in Barbara Osborne's box in the
League, or managers may contact
Jean Brown at 2-5618.
Suomynona To Meet .*. .
The second meeting of Suomynona,
the organization of women living out-
side of university residences, will be
held at 4 p.m. today in the Hussey
Rom of the League.
The group will discuss plans for
this year and will conclude the meet-
ing with the singing of Michigan
songs and Christmas carols. These
Suomynona get-togethers are de-
signed for the purpose of benefiting

Postmaster Oscar Philips, who
needs padding to look like the chil-
dren's saint, says the postoffice in
his little country store probably will
handle more than a million letters
and packages this month.
A dozen extra helpers, mostly
housewives, sort and postmark about
40,000 pieces of mail each day. The
piles overflow onto the grocery
shelves, but Phillips has moved the
ketchup and crackers out of the way.
The postmaster is a genial chap,
even though his girth is a little dis-
appointing, and he erjoys the holiday
rush. So do the other residents of
this 15-dwelling, southern Indiana
hill town.
The community lies outside the
lush corn and hog belt of upper In-
diana and extra incoimie resulting
from its name is gratetully received.
The memory of Jim Martin helps
keep the Christmas spirit alive in
Santa Claus.
Martin was postmaster-merchant
here for thirty years until his death
in 1935. Letters addressed to Santa
Claus in. childish scrawls, once
routed to the dead letter office, were
forwarded to Martin. He answered as

Post has taken over t.he task. With
help from volunteers who believe in
a Merry Christmas, it has answered
some 25,000 letters this year. Legion-
naire Jim Yellig went to Evansville
this week-end to collect more money
for the Post's stamp fund, and Evans-
ville 40 & 8 chapter helped gather
small change from Christmas shop-
to travel than the buying
of a ticket. Have one who

erary for you.
