High School students have fun gathering and sorting "Clothing a Child or Adult Would be Proud to Wear," to go to needy children and their parents in America's Southern Mountains region. Save the Children Federation is an international non-sectarian organization, "serving children the world around." In addition to its annual used cloth- Ing drives, SCF conducts Overseas and American Indian Child Sponsorships, Child-Family Self-Help programs and School and Community Sclf-Hclp programs in America and a dozen countries overseas. Fayette school sfucfenfs Colled used clothing Volume 47, Number 46 Thursday, November 16, 1961, Fayette, Iowa Six Pages This Issue Cardinals to open season on Friday The week of Nov. 13 - 17 has been declared Save the Children Federation Bundle Days and students of Fayette Community school are collecting good used clothing for distribution to needy children and their parents in the Southern Mountain regions of the United States and elsewhere. "The determination of our students to make this Save the Children Bundle Days project a success is inspiring," declared-Mrs. l£a*e, principal, "and I strongly urjjR everyone to cooperate with these young people by contributing as much used clothing as possible." Students are making house-to- house collections for the clothing, or contributors may bring the clothing directly to the school in bags or cartons. According to Dr. Willard-Jfc-Beatty, Executive Vice PrealOemlSF'Save the Children Federation —jia 30-year-old international organization dedicated to the .service of children everywhere — ibe stress in this year's collection is upon good wearable clothing — clothing a child or adult would be proud to wear. "The Federation strives to bring to the needy the best possible clothing," Dr. Beatty points out. "We clean, mend and sew buttons on. the clothing we receive. We never distribute it until this work has been done. The better the clothing we receive, the better the ' clothing the ' recipients will receive and the' less it will cost us to get the clothing in good condition. •„;• , "The .annual'"clothing collections Open house attended By over 400 persons MAYNARD. ^ More than 400 persons attended the open house and dedication program for the new additions to the Maynard school house, Sunday, Nov. 12. Assisting in the services was Arch W. Grimes, former superintendent of the Maynard Consolidated school and now building consultant for the State Department of Public Instruction. An- which we conduct in collaboration with the notion's educators and administrators and the nation's school children, is only one of our self- help programs. People thrive on pride and self-respect. We do our best to help them to help themselves. How much easier it is to help oneself when one is warm nnd decently clad, with pride in one's appearance. "We have other self-help programs — our American Indian and Overseas Child Sponsorships, where the children are assisted with supplementary benefits and the warmth of the sponsor's friendship, expressed in correspondence and even visits. "We have our school and community self-help programs which raise the educational or the economic level of an entire community. . "In giving used clothing in SCF Annual Bundle Days Drive, it should never be forgotten that these are only a first phase of the vital work of rehabilitation — which must be accomplished around the world if this planet is to survive as a place of peace and progress." Anyone interested in the work of Save the Children- Federation should communicate directly with Dr. Willard W. Beatty, Save the Children Federation, Norwalk, Connecticut.
