As another Tule draws near, the Hillf ielder rises to meet the joyous occasion by donning the hallowed garments of that great, benefactor, Santa CI a us, to spread pleasure and mirth in the midst of sobriety and resolution. Casting about for a likely group deserving of its unselfishness, this publication finally decided that no more appropriate recipient could be found than our own sealous little WAC organization. "Hot dawg!" said the editor; "hot dawg!" said assistant editor; "hot dawg!" said the society editor. Obviously, every WAC couldn't be contacted individually so the next best alternative was chosen; n namely, selecting a typical and questioning it as to its Christmas tastes and desires. red-nos- ed Superior Items to Soon Be Issued to EM Wlipn.

It has also been found that pressure on the body restricts the circulation of the blood which must move freely to prevent frost bite. All unnecessary perspiration must also be avoided, because when clothing becomes damp, it is easily frozen. The materials used in the manufacture of the uniforms are the result of extensive testing and grading of numerous high-grad- e products.
