Oregon schools have been asked to
take part in the Twelfth National
Children’s Clothing Crusade to collect
clothing to aid Korea. Seven countries
of Western Europe, two southwestern
Indian Reservations, and isolated
rural areas of eight southern states,
it was announced today by Leland D.
Carmack, National Representative of
Save the Children Federation. Every
family in Oregon is being asked to
send a bundle of good, serviceable
clothing to school during the week of
the drive, March 22nd-March 27th.
Universal participation of Oregon
schools is expected this year in the
drive which is conducted under the
auspices of the national committee
of school superintendents. The cloth­
ing will be distributed by Save the
Children Federation, a child service
organization which renders aid not
only to neglected children in America
but also to victims of war overseas.
Clothing for Korea will be stored
and reconditioned in Federation Cloth­
ing Center and then shipped to Korea
where it will be distributed through
the Unified Command.
officers report that there are nine
I million victims of communist aggre--
I sion in Korea desperately in need of
this aid, as well as millions still in
need in Europe where in certain areas
conditions are still tragic. Thous­
ands of children in handicapped rural
areas of America are unable to at­
tend school as a result of being in­
adequately clothed. Officials of Save
the Children Federation, report that
thousands of American children do
not attend school as they lack suf­
ficient clothing.
Besides the clothing distribution
program, Save the Children Federa­
tion administers child and school
sponsorship programs in America,
overseas, and in Indian Reservations
in the Southwest. In these personal­
ized programs, individuals, schools,
organizations, and churches adopt a
child or school through sponsorship
and agree not only to furnish a spec­
ified amount of aid but also to cor­
respond with the children or school
that they have adopted. The spon­
sorship programs have been widely
accepted as one of furthering mutual
understanding and friendship be­
tween people of other countries and
The clothing drive in Oregon is ex­
pected to raise 110,000 pounds of clo-
thing, Mr. Carmack reports, and ad­
ded, "Bundle Week drive will be the
greatest effort ever made in Oregon
schools to collect clothing. If each
family in Oregon will send at least cue
bundle of good clothing during Bun­
dle Week, the goal will be reached.”
