Baptist Student U discusses locations drive starts today to sponsor retreat The goal to provide each of the 368 boys at Cal Farley's Boys Ranch with a new suit of clothing package for Christmas began today. The annual Christmas Suit Fund has become a favorite way of giving for friends of the boys who contribute $25.00 for this purpose. "Although costs for new suits will exceed $25.00, some of the Ranch's boys receive clothing packages for less than that amount." Virgil Patterson, Ranch president, said, "Amarillo merchants also help by making it possible for the boys to have suits at discounts. Suits and clothing packages will average about $25.00 per boy." The suits replace those that have been worn out or outgrown, and in many cases, they are the first new suits some of the boys have ever owned. The boys get to select their own suits from Amarillo department stores. "A new suit is the best Christmas present a boy can receive because it is a year-round reminder of those who care," Mr. Patterson said. Contributions to the Boys Ranch Christmas Suit Fund may be mailed to the Boys Ranch Office, P. O. Box 1890, Amarillo, Texas, 79105, or taken to the administrative office at 600 West llth Street in Amarillo.
