KI:vsi n And West Virginia IVcws Evening Times, Wednesday, 'January 12, 1949 Clothing Drive Set This Week KEYSER. W. Vn.—"Bundle Day' clothing, which will be collected at schools in Mineral county tomorrow and Friday, Is.shipped not only to devastated regions overseas but, also to rural areas of America, according to Haven L. Idleman, superintendent a.' Mineral county schools. If it were not for the "Bund! Day" collections, sponsored by 'th -Save - the - Children Federation many of the less fortunate chlldre in this country would not be able t attend school during the inclemer weather because of lack' of proper clothing, Idleman added. The federation lists warm cloth ins, such as" heavy'underwear, woo skirts, suits, sweaters' and coats,' a the most Important. "Bundle Day clothing ROCS to people whose firs need Is .warm th—not style. If th clothinff'Is warm even, adult size can be cut down and used. Children's 'shoes are next In im porcance. Even though scuffed America's outgrown shoes still hav miles of use left in them. Here again some adult sizes can be used becaus rural children overseas- and 'in America often have very ^road feet Spare sheets, pillow-cases, o blankets are badly needed in manj European" homes. Babies' clothing U in constant demand. Diapers crib blankets, night shirts, caps and mittens are scarce in' many countries, and observers have reportec babies with improvised diaper," frozen to their legs because there was no change. Mrs. Gordon S. White, director of federation's New York workroom which packs all "Bundle Day' clothing sent overseas and much of ihat for domestic use, in a note to Idleman stressed the importance ol having all gifts clean andUn as gooc repair as possible, not only because or the scarcity of thread and patching material overseass, but also because these gifts will be symbols of hope to needy children. The federation makes prompt shipment of all "Bundle Day" clothing. Overseas, all of it is'given away. In American it has been found a sounder -practice' to make a small token charge, as many proud-mountain families "Don't want charity" but are none the less unable to purchase adequate clothing for their "children. • Clotbing.for isolated.c-ural areas is placed on racks, the prices marked. A child's sweater may be priced at 25c or 35c. Other prices arc similarly low. After allowance has been made for expenses, the proceeds of the sales are used for the further benefit of children in the area served. Care is taken to see that none'is denied clothing for lack of ability to pay. District Moose Elect New Board THOMAS, W.
