Working On Canpaign At
Cltture Pinner
Annual campaigning for the Stu-
dent Christian association financial
drive has been set for next Tuesday
continuing through Jan. 8, 9 and 10.
The goal of the campaign is' $5,000
which is less. than one-fourth the
total budget for the association during
the fiscal year. J. S. DeTar, '25M,
will act as general .chairman of the
drive and the contributions will be
received in cash or pledges.
. To Continue Present Polic
The' funds that are to be - raised
will be used in continuing the pro-
gram carried out by the Student Chris-
tian association so far this year. 'Un-
der campus service the organization
plans to form new discussion groups
next semester; to have a special con
mittee make regular hospital visit-
ations giving aid to individuals when
necessary; to continue the reading
room, checking stand, information
bureau, ocatoal council work, and
to furnish meeting places for various
campus organizations.
Under religious work, the associ-j
ation. will _continue -with the 'pper
Room" Bible class under."Father"
Iden,the University services, and will
institute a new series of religious ser-
vices. Other activities to be support-
ed with the funds derived from the
campaign Include ,international group
meetings, fostering -inter-denomin-7
ational fellowship, the extention de-
partment, and- the fresh, air camp.
Prominent :f nts that tok .place

year are the Older Boy's conference,1
attendance from Michgan to . the
World Student Volunteer convention,
the special Aristic and 'Thanks-

Christmas Eai ivites
The organization's annual financial
drives in the past few years have
failed to attain the mark desired, and
the association has been finding itself
more deeply i debt fromyear to year.
The stabilization of the Student
Christian association and its con
tinuedprominence as acampus or-
ganization depends to a larger ex-
tent, therefore, upon the success of
this year's campaign.
President Marion L. Burton, in
speaking about the organization says,
"As a rule the things that really
count in life deserve more attention
than they really receive. This is pe-
culiarly true today where so much

to meet this primary need of every)
student. It stands for sanity and hon-
esty in religion 'and life."
Prof, T. H. Reed of the political
science department will speak to all
men who are to work on the financial
campaign at 5:30 o'clock Tuesday
night in 'the Methodist church. Din-
ner will be served to the campaigners
and the drive will be formally opened
following the meeting.
