This case was investigated through many sources before re- ceiving Goodfellows aid. Goodfel- low workers visited the home to witness conditions. Words cannot double bed, a studio couch. The house is so small that the preschool-ige children must pley on the beds. The house is heated by a small oil stove. The mother cooks on a two-burner kerosene- stove. The "kitchen" is set-off only by an archway. The washing machine takes up .almost alt the "kitchen" space. The fam- ily has absolutely no luxuries. Even their old radio doesn't work. "How ten people can live in this place is beyond said one GoodfeHow worker. The fatter works full-time, and steadily, too. But his income just can't begin to serve ten persons. The children have to walk two miles to school. Frequently they left for school but returned short- ly. Clad as miserably as they were, they couldn't stand the cold hike describe the misery this family en- dures. Yet, one of the first things GoodfeHow workers noticed upon entering the home was a poster hanging on the wall: "Christ is King in this home." Goodfellow workers took the eight children to stores where they received shoes and overshoes. They were fitted with high-top shoes, most durable for their long walk to school. The youngest girl received heavy, warm snowsuit and par- ka. All the children received every article of clothing they will need this winter. Paid for by Goodfellows contributions. "I never hope to see such a case asserted Mrs. Lightfoot who has been a Goodfellow worker" for 12 years. This is how the Goodfellow fund being -spent. And the Goodfel- low's job is far from finished. Hun- dreds of needy Winona children like these still need Goodfellows help. Won't you be a Goodfellow and contribute now so that all of Wi- nona's needy children can receive the shoes, overshoes, and warm articles of clothing they need? The Goodfellow workers need money. .your money as a Good- fellow. The money is spent as fast as it is received; yet nearly 500 more children remain to be serv- ed.
