Mr. Plonk also announced that all Co

It had been previously planned to u
use the Woman's Club as a receiving _
station, but limited facilities and the aJ

As an example of the need for at
clothing, Mr. Plonk pointed to a at
statement by Oen. Jonathan Wain- 'n
wright, the here of Corregtdor: CI
"The Filipino people were our com to
radee in the bloody struggle to de- ft
feat the Japanese. Their troops teamed
with our forces to check the in- ?
vader on Luron. They had faith with
us in the principles of right and de- re
cency and stood shoulder to shoulder fi
with us. We must make good all our M
pledges to these fine and loyal and
I brave people. We must help them \
now to rebuild their land and their ^
lives. One way the American people
can help is to give good, serviceable
lightweight clothing to the Victory ?
Clothing Collection for Overseas ' Belief.
It is not right that the Filipino "
children, men and women should con
unue to iaca eiotnes and sfcoet need- _
ed for self-respect and courage."
"'All citizens are urged to help in
this campaign," Mr. Plonk aaid. Dl
