Collection of Clothing For Overseas Continues Services Discharging More Local Fighters; Others Enroute Home Memorial Hall basement is open daily from 8:00 a. m. to 6:00 p. m., from now until February 9 for those who wish to contribute to the Victory Clothing Collection for overseas*relief. A generous response has come in answer to the first appeal for cloth- ng, but nowhere near as much as had been expected here. So the committee n charge wishes to again stress the need for wearable articles that can be sent to war-stricken countries. Here are tips on a few items as to ow they should be handled: Be sure that shoes are securely tied in pairs by the strings: belts should be fastened on resses; suits should be fastened together. This will lessen the huge task icing those who must pack the clothing for shipment abroad. Share all you can spare," and "What an you spare that they can wear" are slogans in this drive. Make your .inswer a bundle of clothes taken to Memorial Hall now. Last week when I recommended ; j'.'TheitJDolly Sisters" and ''Anchors Awelgh" as being outstanding cnter- v tainment, I believe my claims for these being the year's best musicals was . Aillyjjjustifled, and that those who re- ^onded by attending got the kind of .Jn$i$tj|||alnment they enjoy, i '-'-$W«n »akc the statement that "Rhop- ^ody s 4in Blue" should have.been in- ^Udejl in that list, may be somewhat belated, but there seems to be quite a blj^oli controversy among those who 1 °$in^ that they enjoyed "Rhapsody :«<&iBme" better than the other two. It fM$klWi' ,nv intention to settle arguments jtiitK ^lt is nevertheless quite evident '"^"ItlitS ^tTRhapsody in Blue" is a tremen- -v^tylM.fUm success.
