Self-Winding Watches
I like self-winding watches
Except I’ve always found,
I never can be fully sure
How much the thing's unwound.
I never know if it is low
Or if it’s wound up tight,
So I shake my wrist 'most every
To be sure the thing is right.
And every other hour or so
Without my hardly knowing',
I put the watch up to my ear
To be sure the darn thing’s go
I like self-winding watches
More than any other brand,
But it really is much easier
To wind a watch by hand.

Bandage Output
For a full year and a half the
students of the University have
been putting their time toward
producing surgical dressings and
garments for the soldiers and
personnel of war-time hospitals.
Since the campus unit’s open
ing they have rolled over a mil
lion bandages and made child
ren's clothes, hospital robes and
pajamas, utility bags and foot
Because such fine work has
been done by the women, and re
cently the men too, a new loca
tion opened last week in the store
next to the College Side. With
work being done every afternoon
and all day Saturdays, the out
put has been nearly tripled.
War-time army regulations
make it impossible to know the
exact destination of the bandages,
but all indications show they
have most likely been used in field
hospitals or marine hospitals in
Alaska, Africa, the Solomons and
other fighting areas.
Some of the garments made by
the sewing unit were used direct
ly in cases near Eugene during the
flood months. Others have been
sent to the Lane county chapter
and sent out to other points upon
iiotice from the army or national
Red Cross chapter.
