Main St. Any soiled clothing do¬ nated to Council will be cleaned free of charge by Jensen's as a service and tribute to Council. All members 'need to do is take clothing there. That assures fresh merchandise to sell in the Nearly New Shop. Only through the cooperation of its members can Columbus Council of Jewish Women do an outstanding job. Mrs. Irving Shuster and Mrs. Oscar Weston are in charge of workers. Women are needed aa saleswomen, cash¬ iers, markers. Volunteers should contact Mrs. Shuster, BE. s-6618. The shop is open every Tuesday. Thursday and Saturday, 9 a. m. to 3 p. m., and workers may choose the time and day most convenient for them.
