Showing a total of $12,000 collected
to yesterday morning, the undergrad-
uate drive for the Women's league
building is well on its way to the goal
of $20,000 set as its contribution for
this year. This amount represents
I only the sophomores, juniors and sen-
iors, as the freshmen have not been
solicited this term.
Today marks the close of an in-
tensive two week's campaign by a
staff of 100 members, headed by Eve-
lyn Ogborn, '28, chairman of the ex-
ecutive committee. When final re-
ports are made tonight it is expected
that the known total will be swelled
to greater proportions.
Life membership in the league has
been urged for every University wom-
an. The benefits of a permanent con-
nection with a permanent institution
have been stressed, as well as the con-
venience of a well-equipped center for
women's activities. Alumni and
friends throughout the country have
watched with interest the drive for
$1,000,000 which will mean the erec-
tion of the building. Large donations
' have come as a result of this interest.
Of the total necessary, more than
$750,000 has already been acquired.
The remainder must be gained this
year, in order to carry out the cam-!
paign slogan "Break Ground, June,

now planning a follow-up on the drive
