The workers i-owmeutPd on how a bicycle, wagon or toy Qhair can be transformed from the "trash" category into a bright, exciting gift with a new coat of paint or a replaced wheel or leg. In the little girls' department, a doll, no longer cared about in one home, will become another child's love tomorrow after a shampoo and hair set, or new clothing styles; tasks performed by Mrs. Johanna Jones' home economics class. In addition to the rebuilt toys, the clubs have purchased several hundred dollars worth of new toys and members contributed toys for the project rather than have a gift exchange for themselves at their Christmas ppty Saturday. The toys were distributed '• Monday at the school with par- j ents selecting gifts for their 1 children.
