Members of Galens, the medi-
cal student honorary society, will
be standing on street corners
around Ann Arbor tomorrow and
Saturday in their third annual
Tag Day.
The proceeds from the drive,
w h ich in past years have
amounted to about $7000,hare
used for two Galens supportedl
The Galens' workshop, .located
on the ninth floor of University
Hospital, is a recreation area for
young patients. It features varied
equipment for working in arts
and crafts, has both a book and
a record library, and listening fa-
cilities for the records.
A full-time special education
teacher supervises the workshop.
In addition, patients who cannot
be moved to the ninth floor are
personally visited by the teacher.
A play area is also available on
the roof of the hospital. Baseball
and other outdoor sports are
played there when the weather
nods approval.
Workshop Projects
The children decide for them-
selves what project they want to

undertake -- perhaps making a
lanyard, book ends, or a wood
Children arrive at the workshop
on foot, in wheelchairs, or in beds.
The workshop provides occu-
pational therapy on a miniature
level. It is sometimes the only
pleasant part of a child's stay at
the hospital.
The other of the two Galens
supported projects. is an annual
Christmas party for the young
patients of the hospital. Since
some of the children go home for
Christmas, the party is held ear-
ly, next Thursday this year,
This year 199 children in the
hospital will receive gifts and par-
ticipate in games. The parties will
be held in individual wards.
Santa Claus naturally will make
an appearance in each ward.
Party Candy
The candy usually associated
with a children's party will be
distributed during the week with
the regular meals, according to
Miss Mary A. Bancroft, assistant
director of the hospital school.
Stockings are hung on the walls
on Christmas Eve by those chil-

dren too ill to go home for the
holiday, and these are filled with
gifts by Galens members.
Bob Kretzchmar, '57M, Galens
president, described a more com-
plete program than the mere fill-
ing of stockings. "Thirty years!
ago Galens took on the job of
making a complete and wonder-
ful Christmas for the unfortun-
ate kids who have to stay in the
hospital," he said. "If a hospital

was ever like home, the Univer-
sity Hospital is at Christmas."
The Galens were recently re-
stricted by SGC from soliciting on
the campus, although the restric-
tion applies only to the "main
campus" area. With this obstacle
in mind, the Galens will be doub-
ly pressed to reach their quota of
$7,000. Expansion of their opera-
tions during the years has resulted
in a program costing this amount
