We, The Women
Coeds Decide To Back War Relief Project
As 1800 Men Students Register For Army
TODAY PENN STATE. WOMEN take up the task of doing
their part for the nation and the countries at war simultaneously
with the registering of 1,800 of their male classmates in the first
peacetime draft the country has seen. Eager to show the men
that they are not alone in this sacrifice for freedom, coeds spun_
taneously set about to construct a project to alleviate suffering
throughout the world.
As this column is being written; WSGA, Panhellenic Council,
and women's dormitory presidents are cooperating to form a com
mittee which will meet with the Red Cross, Friends' Service Corn 7
mittee, British War Relief Society and other groups. That or
ganization will investigate a suitable project for the entire worn
en's student body to carry out.
During the last war college women united with women
throughout the country to knit sweaters, roll bandages, and devise
other benefits for warring men.
Penn State is not the first college to recognize that its wom
en are needed to prevent and appease suffering.. Already on other
campuses women are planning enterprising tasks of comforts for
Europe's millions of destitute people. A campus forerunner in
this help league is Barnard College in New York City.
We, the college women of our country, have been stunnned to
read of the horrible prifations of the people in "Free France," and
the bomb-stricken English citizens. We have been amazed and at
the same time in doubt as to what we could do about the situation.
We have been confused in believing that help coming from "just
me" wouldn't reach a starving child. We have been told by some
that Axis powers usurp any .aid which may penetrate Europe's
coastline from the Americas.
Here at college we cannot agree to adopt the children of Brit
ain for the duration of the war as other of our sister Americans
have found themselves in a position to do, but there are other
ways we can make contributions felt while our men classmates
cast confused glances at July 1 on the calendar.
Help to the allies has been temporarily blocked by the State
Department, but when it resumes normally we should be prepared
to offer what we can in the medium we are best equipped to give
—money—to buy the much-needed food and surgical supplies.
With men students wondering what is in store for them after to
day, we can no longer evade the fact that our help is needed—in
any way we can give it.
Going without some of the luxuries we permit ourselves will
give some starving family bread or bandage a wounded combat
ant's bleeding arm.
So as our men sign up for army service, let them know that
Penn State women are solidly doing their part for the nation.
Any newspaper, magazine, moving picture, or radio announc
er tells the horrible , war story so that we have come to grasp the
full significance of what is happening "over there." We know of
the filth and the blood. And we know our aid. is begged'for.
Can we dare turn our faces away?

pleasures to make things better
for - those who now know true
hardship," Miss Weaver stated.

over to competent agencies . for
European relief," she continued.

and every one of you both in giv
ing and in offering suggestions."
Miss Charlotte E.. Ray, dean of
women, has stated, "Through Am
erican Red Cross, Friends' Service
Committee, and British War Re,-
lief Society, we can give the as
surance that our i'unds will go di
rectly to the aid of the needy, but
we shall be open to suggebtions.on
other channels for sending help."
"In order that there may be en
lightened opinion in this matter,"
she continued, "we ask all to con
sult 'daily - newspapers and current
magazines and to ask advice of
inetrested faculty members."
