PROPOSE PLAN ,TO
j Pres. Little And Alumnae Council
Agree On Plans For Cbmpletlon
Of Building Fund
TO RAISE $500,000
Plans for raising the last half mil-
lion dollars toward the Women's
league building fund based on the
financial report of the campaign up
to March 1, 1926, were presented and
passed by the executive council, theI
advisory board and the investment
board at a joint meeting yesterday.
President Clarence Cook Little presid-
ed at the meeting and those present
exhibited a great deal of enthusiasm
over the prospects for the completion
of the $1,000,000 necessary before the
ground can be cleared and the build-
According to the report given
March 1, there are $313,856.61 in the
fund, although there have been many
payments since that date that will be
included in a later report. There are
on the files, pledges amounting to
$525,000 which means that there is a
little less than the $500,000 left to
raise. The money which has been so
far accumulated has been invested by
the University investment board and
is bearing from 6 to 7 per cent.
Although these figures are encour-
aging, the task which remains is large
enough, when it is considered that
there is little more than one year in
which to complete the total. The plan
which the alumnae, council, supported
by the other boards and endorsed by
President Little is as follows: First,
to raise $300,000 through volunteer
group pledges from ten groups each
willing to pledge $10,000 to be paid
within the next three years, from 20
groups each willing to pledge $5,000
to be paid within three years, and
from a sufficient number of groups
willing to pledge a sum of from $500
to $4,000 to make up the additional
$100,000, and to be paid within three
years. Second, to raise the remaining
1200,000 through special gifts, the re-
sponsibility of which falls upon Mrs.
W. D. Henderson as executive secre-
tary of the alumnae council.
This has been explained to the
alumnae groups of the country and so
far the support has been enthusiastic
and some have already decided upon
their pledge toward the last $500,000.

ANNOUNCE PLANS FORl
All houses expecting to play in the
annual intramural baseball tourna-
ment this season must sign up this
week on the poster in Barbour gymna
slum and procure entry blanks which
will be due back next Monday. Ac-
cording to Miss Pauline Hodgson, ofI
the physical education department it
was planned at first to use the same
system for the baseball tournament
that was used for the basketball
tournament, but due to the lack of
time it will be impossible to use the
same system, and a double elimination
tournament will be run off instead.
Practices will start this week and
will be held at 4 o'clock on Wednes-
days and Fridays. A 12 inch ball will
be used in all practices and games.

ger, and Harriet Donaldson, '27, is W.
