Record Set in
1960 OF 'Fair
Share' Giving

"Fair Share" giving and all-
out participation brought record
success to the 1960 Torch Drive.
A checking of records at
United Foundation headquarters,
1528 Woodward, shows more
"Fair Share" givers than ever
before and a higher percentage
of participation, Walter C. Laid-
law, executive vice president of
the United Foundation, said.
"Fair Share" is a standard of
giving according to income that
was worked out by a United
Foundation committee.
The $18,316,741 raised in the
1960 Torch Drive was the great-
est amount ever contributed in
a- community-wide drive for
health and community services.
It brought to more than $173,-
000,000 the amount raised by
the Torch Drive in the past 12
years.
