WSGA Starts
Relief Project
effective as "Ready, Aim, Fire" in
keeping the enemy from British
shores. Good food, warm clothing,
and a place to sleep are essential
to win a battle in which morale
plays a greater part than 16-inch
Although a drive for funds will
be conducted with All-College
Cabinet second semester, WSGA's
project is now getting underway.
Knitting sweaters, helmets, and
gloves is a way. for everyone to
relieve the suffering of those whose
homes have been destroyed and
who have been left with insuffi
cient clothing for the cold days
Within the next few days mem
bers of the project committee will
contact each coed to offer wool and
needles. If you don't know how to
knit, there will be instructions
available. If you do know how,
start using those free hours to
alleviate suffering abroad.
You can contribute, too, by giv
ing any old wool clothes or by
planning benefit bridges.
Garments will go to the British
War Relief Society whose aid
reaches those not eligible for Brit
ish Red Cross help (the British
Red Cross cares for persons in
jured in battles or bombings).
Any aid you give strengthens
democracy, not only in Britain,
but also in the United States.

Ideal Man
Corbin, Peters, Robinson,
—Mortar Board Abners
"He's adorable!"
"He's handsome!"
"What a guy!" -
Yep, the local gals are out
baggin' their. ideal men, and' Lou
Corbin, Chuck Peters and Bob
Robinson are the prize \ bachelor
For any aspiring coeds not yet in
the race, be assured that Cable,
Taylor, and Flynn can't hold a
candle to these local ,heart-break
Lou is that peppy Tribunal
prexy who guides misdirected
freshmen: He's the' type who has
the lassies moaning, "Oh, if you
were, only taller!" Think him over
when you cast your vote.
Blonde Chuck Peters doesn't
have to take that "You got to be
a football hero" ditty seriously,
cause he's the strong type with a
neat pass defense. Even the best
tailback, however, can• be caught,
so call your signals right.
Then there's Bob Robinson,
Daily Collegian circulation man,
Tribunal, baseball player, and
actor. The women rave about this
fellow, "Tall, dark, handsome, and
what a smile!"
It just narrows down to this—
who's your ideal man—a smoothie,
a football star, or an Apollo?..
You can cast your vote for any
of these local Li'l Abners, the
Catch-of-the-Campus, until Satur
day at-the Corner Room or Student
Union. Top man will be crowned
at the Spinster Skip in White Hall
at 9 p.m. Saturday.
No matter how you vote, here's
hoping for a Happy Sadie Hawkins
Day—and good huntin'!
