Mayor Makes Appeal for Clothing for
Illy Clad 'Thousands of Heroic Russians
In that portion of Russia that was over-run by the German horde
in 1942 and 1943 and retaken by the Russians in 1943 and 1944,
great suffering has been caused from hunger and exposure. Lend
lease is doing what it can to supply food and now a national drive
is being instituted in this country to supply clothing to those war
We are not being asked to give the clothes off our backs, nor to
buy new ones, nor to give money, but to give our'cast-off clothing
clothing that we have thought too good to throw away, but which we
probably will never wear again. Our closets are too full of that kind
of material and now is a good time to dispose of it and for a good
cause. Let's help those who have helped us mightily.
Clothes that are positively worn out are not wanted, nor are
clothes that are dirty, nor do we want clothes that you will wear
again. But clothes that are soiled and somewhat worn, but have a
lot of good wear in them yet, will be very acceptable.
Clothes should be tied in bundles or packed in cartons. Shoes
should be tied in pairs.
Most of these clothes yill be collected through the schools, but
those families that have no direct school connection no students
in school, may leave their bundles at the Red Cross Sewing Center
in Heppner formerly the Hughes store in the Oddfellows build
ing on Main street. The American Legion and the American Le
gion auxiliary are cooperating in this drive and will maintain an
attendant and the above designated building will be open on Feb
ruary 8, 9, and 10, from 10:00 o'clock a. m. to 5:00 p. m. each day.
All persons who will bring clothes to this center are particularly re
quested to do so on those three days, for the building will not oth
erwise be open. The schools also are cooperating in this drive and
all material taken to the schools will be collected during those three
days and will be delivered to this center. The Legion and auxiliary
will then sort, pack and ship the goods to the proper designation
in Portland. Don't forget February 8, 9 and 10. And please re
member the valiant Russians!
American forest products are in the thick of the fighting ..... as
ammunition boxes ..... as wood cellulose explosives in the ammunition,
itself as rifle stocks in the hands of doughboys and even as
the wings and bodies of bombers which have raided Berlin!
That's why the Army and Navy have called to the forest products industries
to "pass the ammunition" those kinds of it which the forests supply.
In turn, that's why this company and thousands of other lumber mills,
plywood factories, and wood-pulp plants, are working as fast as manpower
Fortunately for the nation, the forests can "stand it." For more than twenty -years,
the forest industries have been helping to increase the annual amount
of new wood created by growth. Today, more than one-third of all the
land area of the nation is forest-land and the amount of new wood
created by annual new growth is still steadily increasing!
That's why that we are able to rejoice that when the war is over there still
will be an abundance of wood in the American forests. .
