k this .evening

Youth and patriotism are made
from the same material or at least the
results of yesterday's campaign for
clothing for the Belgians indicated
that such might be the case. The
grade schools contributed several
times as much to the cause as the
high school and the University gai e
less than the latter.

Eberbach and Tappan schools filled

The personnel of the team is J. A.
8 Krout, '18, R. F. Matthews, '20L, and
A. J. Adams, '18. Krout had his first
three years of college work at Heidel-
berg, Tiffin, Ohio, where his home is
located. While there he was on be-
bating teams for three years. He is
a member of Alpha Nu.
Adams is president of the Comedy]
club and appeared in "The Profess-
or's Love Story," which was presented
by that organization in 1915. While in
. high school in Summit Hill, Pa., he
r did considerable debating.
r Matthews of Shelbyville, Ky., won
two medals in high school oratorical
contests and was on the Alpha Nu
freshman cup team in 1916 and on

e The $600 recently appropriated by
' the regents for general publicity is
being used in the preparation of
pamphlets for distribution throughout
the state.
The committee has prepared a brief
statement which will appear in the
May festival programs showing in a
summary way what war work is be-
ing done by the University and a four-
page circular giving the same infor-
mation in a more extended form is
being printed for distribution amo. g
,the teachers and principals who at-
tend the Schoolmasters' club.
In addition to these 25,000 copies, a
16-page booklet containing eight ex-
tra pages of illustrations are to be
circulated among the high schools of
the state. These circulars have a two-
i fold purpose; first, to show that while
the University has contributed a large
number of its faculty and students .
the various branches of the national
service, it still has a large body of
t students, a great proportion of whom
1 are in active preparation for the res-
i ponsibility of the near future and,

women had less than half a truck
load at the Barbour gynnasium
awaiting the collector. The High and
Perry schools accounted for another
truck load the latter school giving
most of this load. In addition to
collecting from these two schools
Goldman Bros., also brought in over
a half truck load from the Jones
school. The Swiss garment cleani
company collected a five-passenger
touring car load of clothing from the
,Bach, Mack, and Donovan schools,
the Bach school in this case being
the heaviest contributor.
Over 750 articles of clothing were
sorted and ready for packing yeste:
day at noon. Of these 298 were chil-
dren's garments, 274 women's, and
194 men's. An afghan knitted by Mrs.
H. S. Frieze in 1882 was one of the
articles brought in yesterday afte"
noon. The Chas. S. Millen dry goods
,company gave three dozen pairs of
,new woolen hose and the B. E. Mueh-
Jig com'pany gave four complete out-
Afits for children.
Although the contributions yester-
day were much heavier than those of
the first day the committee in charge
thinks it is not up to the amount that
should be given. If it were not for the
enthusiasm of the youngsters the
clothing that would have been col-
lected during the past two days would
have been of a negligible quantity. It
must be remembered of course that
many of the children are giving for
the entire family.
Late yesterday the Economy baler
company agreed to furnish a baler to
be used in the packing and also offer-
ed to deliver it to the Huron street
headquarters of the Red Cross. By
baling the clothing rather than park
ing it in boxes it will be possible to
ship larger quantities in the cars and
this will be an aid to the railroad ad-
ministration which is trying in every
way to relieve the freight situation.
War Food To Be Shown at Bake Sale
New varieties of war foods will be
on exhibition at the demonstration
bake sale to be held from 10 to 5 Sat-
,urday at Barbour gymnasium. House-
keepers are urged to show their good
will by sending contributions accom-

With a cast made up of 75 of the lULL
prettiest girls in the junior class,
with good music and lots of pep, the
1918 Junior Girls' play will appear
before the women of the campus for
its first performance on the eveningB
of March 26. As usual the first night
will be senior night and the play wil!
follow the annual senior dinner wherE
the 1918 class will appear in cap an. GER
gown for the first time.
The play will be unique for this
season in that it'is not concerned with No Re
a war theme nor does the war enter er
into the plot in any way. True to
tradition the name and nature of the
play have been kept an .absolute se
