PBH Opens Spring Old Clothing, Book Drive

Collected Clothing Will Go to Help in Netherlands' Relief

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Following its annual custom Phillips Brooks House is conducting a spring drive for old clothes and books during the next two weeks to provide clothes for the needy in Holland and to add books to its textbook lending library. Donations are being collected by PBH representatives in the Houses.

The garments collected in the drive ordinarily are sent to charitable institutions in the United States, but in response to an urgent appeal from the Dutch Union of Voluntary Women Workers the donations this year will be shipped directly to Holland.

Mrs. J. B. Bruin, writing from Holland, stressed that the clothing situation in Europe is still far from solved despite the recent UNRRA collections in the United States. "It will take us many months, if not years," she said, "before we have helped all the villages which the Germans pillaged."
