manager and opened tho exchange In
n downtown location. Success attend-
ed tho venture from the start and It

pockets of needy World wnr heroes.
Tho exchange tnkes all articles on
consignment and when they aro Fold
the money Is forwarded to tho hospital

In price from 85 cents to $1.50. String
belts glrdles'and curtnln pulls aro

rugs for piazzas and woven nigs for
"bathrooms arc also favorites. All kinds
of hammered Jewelry nnd leather cov-
ers and cases aro good sellers."
