Caption
JUST A SPECIMEN: Many strange and wonderful things happened on the Darwin Downer farm, near Chelsea, last week and the view above is just a sample - just a smidgin, as the boys say - of what went on. Mr. Downer is shown holding one set of the six sets of lamb triplets which were born during the tremendous re-storking of his sheep herd. Six sets of lamb triplets are a lot of potential chops, but they only constituted only the first paragraph of the story. There were also 102 sets of twins. Mrs. Dionne, the thing seems to be catching.

Lassie County got her chance today to mark up a "$" sign on the Cross that is being filled in as the Washtenaw County Red Cross drive progresses. Each "$" sign symbolizes $2,000 added to the fund. Laddie Ann Arbor got a rest, for no reports came in from city Red Cross solicitors over the week-end, probably because the workers were too busy gathering in the dollars. Ann arbor aims to raise at least $61,500 in this Red Cross campaign; the county outside the city is expected to raise at least $31,000 more, making a Washtenaw total of $92,500. Today's audited total stood at $10,973. Red Cross buttons are appearing on the clothing of more and more persons; Red Cross tickers are rapidly going up in windows. Each button and each sticker shows that the possessor is a part of the Red Cross, and is sharing in its noble work.

Laddie Ann Arbor and Lassie County are still awaiting a rush time in marking up Red Cross Fund returns from Washtenaw County. They are like reporters on election night waiting for the official figures--they know Red Cross Dollars have been given in large numbers but the official reports have not yet come in to Red Cross campaign headquarters. So they can't be marked up. Next week solicitors who have been concentrating on securing donations are expected to begin turning in their reports more rapidly--even if the reports are not complete. Then Laddie and Lassie will be kept hustling placing "$" signs on the Cross, each "$" sign representing $2,000 toward Washtenaw county's "$92,500 quota. Unoffical word form solicitors, both in Ann Arbor and in the county outside Ann Arbor, is to the effect that donations are coming strongly, that public-minded citizens are eager to support the Red Cross and to have an active part in its far-flung operations. Today's official audit shows that $8,973.60 has thus far been turned in from Ann Arbor solicitation. No officials' reports have yet been received from outside towns and rural districts. But both Laddie Ann Arbor and Lassie County better get a good week-end rest, because they have busy times ahead. The Red Cross Fund is on the march!

Variety's The Word: If there's one word which characterizes this season's ski fashions it's variety. For a sampling: At the left, U-M coed Tally Walker wears an aqua warm-up suit with contrasting textures of diamond quilt and smooth nylon while Mike Fox sports "farmer pants" in bright green and yellow set off with yellow turtleneck and suspenders. Bright yellow boots complete his outfit. At the right, Tally Walker wears a fur-lined vest which zips or opens to show the lining inside, red, white and blue boots and a white western-style hat. Anne Derleth, holding psychedelic print skis, wears a purple jumpsuit in new stretch gabardine with a white shell underneath, along with a crash helmet which would double for motorcycling.
