OF $2200
Miss Margaret Quayle, New York City,
Continues Speak ig Before
With the campaign for a Michigan
kitchen as the University'spart of the
nation-wide Student Friendship Fund
well under way officials feel confident
that the goal of $5,000 will be raised
by the end of the iweek. More than
$600 was turned ii yesterday from
the campus booths .and other indivi-
dual contributions, it was announced.
This brings the total to date up to
The drive carried on among the
faculty is expected o net $1,000, offi-
cials predict. A part of this money
is already in. Many faculty men have
given liberal amou ts, it was said.
It is hoped to receire some donation
from every member.
Miss Margaret Quayle, of New York
City, has spoken at several fraternity
houses this week, with, the result
that every donation received from
these campus organizations has been
over $50. Miss Quayle spent four
years among the students in Eastern
European countries and her experi-
ences "over there" are said to be
unusually interesting.. She has en-
gagements through Thursday night,
there being only four opportunities
left to obtain her on the following
days. Arrangements may be made
through Egbert R. Isbell, '26L, chair-
man of the drive.
A pledge of $200 was made last!
night by the Junior Research club at
their regular meeting. The contri-
bution is to be handed over to the
committee immedately.- It is believed
that many other organizations will
follow the example set by this group.
Adelphi House of Representatives also I
voted a donation at their meeting r
last night.
"The entir ,presen' day relgigous I
situation may be summed uts' with' a'
realization .of. the, fact:that there isJ
no' longer anything out of tie" ordin-
any in being a heretic," said Prof.
Preston Slosson, of the history depart-
ment, speaking before the Institute
of .Religious Education last night.
Professor Slosson gave a short out-
line of the history of religious devel-
opment. He said that there are to-
day too many diversions, such as the
motor car and the theater, and that
"people have not actually rejected
the* ideas and the teachings of their
forefathers, but simply haven't the
time to -think about them."
