Students Donate Christmas
Boxes to Percy Jones Hospital

Special Guests
Will Be Present
At League Grill

More than 300 Christmas boxes
were turned in by campus residences
for men at Percy Jones Hospital cen-
ter, Battle Creek, according to Jean
Gaffney, chairman of the drive.
The boxes were wrapped as Christ-
mas gifts and were valued at be-
tween $3 and $5, Miss Gaffney said.
They contained various useful items
as shaving kits, key cases, belts, bill-
folds, as well as cards, cigarettes and
lig'hters, pipes and pens.
Martha Cook residents turned in
21 boxes, the highest number re-
ceived from any residence. Tied for
second place with 11 boxes each were
Alpha Gamma Delta, Delta Gamma
and Kappa Alpha Theta. "All of the
gifts were nicely wrapped and will
be welcome at the hospital," Miss
Gaffney said.
Christmas gifts for the bedridden
soldiers were collected in response to
a request from Brig. Gen. Joseph E.
Bastion, commander of the Percy

Jones Center, who wrote that men at
the hospital wished useful gifts, pre-
ferring such items as leather belts
and wallets, toilet kits, and pipes and
tobacco.
All of the gifts were labelled with
the contents so that they could be
distributed to good advantage among
the soldiers. Members of the Red
Cross took the gifts to the hospital
where they will be distributed to the
soldier patients,

carcity o Tree Ornaments
Proves Problem to Decorators
By NORA JANE STAATST----

Each year as the yuletide season
approaches, people turn their atten-
tion to the festivities of Christmas
and to the important item of trim-
ming the Christmas tree.
The common practice in days of
old was to walk into a store and in
a matter-of-fact manner ask for
three strands of lights, two boxes of
tinsel and assorted ornaments. No
longer is this true, for the effects
of war have reached even to the
simple commodities so essential to
a merry Christmas. Yet not one
tree need be bare for lack of gay
colors.
Ingenious Coe ds
May Take Gifts
BY BETTY STEWARD
Christmas cheer is not as bountiful
to the coed when the weeks p~eceed-
ing Christmas fill her mind with mid-
terms and what to give to the room-
mate.
Unfortunately, there is no solution
for the midterms, but the gifts pre-
sent an easier problem. If the budget

Pop corn can be strung on a string,
and wound through the branches.
Cotton balls can be hung here and
there looking remarzably like snow-
balls, minus the melting quality. Can-
dy canes add brightness, and stand
out against the greenness of the tree.
The biggest problem of all Is lack
of lights. An electric light bulb with
a touch of red or green paint can
be set un behind the tree. This is
far from the dazzling gleam of pre-
war days, but it will illuminate the
tree, and can be very effective,
Young and old alike will join into
the spirit of the holiday, sitting on
the floor creating ornaments to give
life to the tree. One day decorations
will again be plentiful, but until that
day, ingenuity can make ypur Christ-
mas tree a cheery shelter for your
Christmas gifts.
Calendars, Cards

Michigan calendars and Christmas

nae Council office, in the League,

cording to Mrs. Lucille B. Conger,
executive secretary of the council.
Michigan cookbooks and small
change purses are also for sale in
the Alumnae office for those who
have not yet completed their Christ-
mas shopping. All of the articles are

THE ORIGINAL
LIP POMADE
E T'

By LYNNE FORD
NOTHING in the coed's life is quite
as harrowing as shopping for
Christmas gifts to suit the male of
the species, whose tastes are as un-
predictable as the ties they don.
With Christmas approaching at
the rate of a fast express, the annual
problem assumes terrifying complexi-
ties. If subtly quizzed, the cause of
all your woe will grinningly reply,
"Oh, a convertible, a Piper Cup, or
say, I need a comb." If he has a par-
ticularly churlish bent, he will inform
you that fellows are five times as easy
to buy -gifts for as women, which
melts your holiday cheer and makes
you feel like a mongolian idiot.
WIS EC RA C KS notwithstanding,
the time for action has come.
Several possible systems can be used
to plot your shopping. First, there is
the concentration method. You sit at
your desk, gaze at his picture, and
chew your pencil. Secondly, there is
the alternative of grabbing some
money and boldly dashing to the
nearest men's store, determined to
buy the first thing you see.
Third way: let some one else figure
it out for you, and that is where The
Clothesline come in. If your prob-
lem likes a little glitter, men's jew-
elry offers an almost unlimited field.
A key chain is a good bet, if a Phi
Bete key is his aim, or even if he owns
a housekey. Cufflinks are attractive
enough to make him buy a french
cuffed shirt, and a tie clip can end
the embarrassment of an airborne
tie.
METAL WATCHSTRAPS are new
and better looking than the old
leather variety and cigarette lighters
and cases are always good. If he
