LAST WEEK, OCTOBER l TO ftwas National Letter Writing Week I didn't catch on to this fact until the week was over, but i guess 1 ob served it all 'right.because 1 both wrote and received sevdral letters. A in so many cases, the 'mail at otir house is eagerly awaited these day on the chance that it Anight contain a letter from a member of the familj away at college. Marly of our outgoing envelopes and parcels are ad. dressed his way, also. * *••-. '» SO FAR, OUR SON HAS BEEN remarkably good about writing home. I think it is seven or, eight letters we have received In the three weeks he's been gone. This is much better,than we expected and I hope he keeps it up. Not a few of them contain requests for either money or cookies, or both, but the letter we received this week is one we enjoyec - most of all. It was a form letter/ put out by Fenton House of Hillcrest Dorm,.an all-purpose affair designed to save time and effort on letters home. The messages don't have to be written, merely checked. . / • , ' ' •.*...* * ; ' .: ; THIS SEEMEp TO ME SUCH A good'idea', I thought I would design a form letter for people at home to send to their college students This is a Woman's World public service project and you are very wel- <C")me to use it on your college students.
