The executive committee decided that this was the best cout 'Be to persue and Mrs. Campbell, chairman of Ihe committee took the eleven quilts oVer to the packing rooms yesterday. ' "Since the Ited CroBs ruled that they could not accept quilts, we have just been keeping ours at the Junior headquarters, thinking that something would turn up whereby we could use them to a better, advantage," Mrs. Campbell explained. "And so when we heard oflthls call, we felt it would please the children to know they were really to be sent to borne iielgian children for whom they wbre made in the first place." There wasn't a more acceptable gift in the entire lot than these quilts and the committee in charge appreciated the Juniors gift.
