Committee In Charge Asks Student Aid
On Bas iThat Camp Is Solely
A Student Enterprise
Today has been set by the Student
Christian Association for annual tag
campaign to raise $6000 for the sup-
port of their summer Fresh Air camp.
Members of several campus organiza-
tions and "M" men will be stationed.
iat various places on the campus to sell
e, tags. The men will be under the
leadership of Clayton Biggs, '27.
ThesFresh Air camp which was
started seven years ago offers a va-
cation to young boys in neighboring
cities who otherwise because of fi-
nancial reasons would have no other
such opportunity.
According to Homer H. Grafton, sec-
retary of the Association, the camp is
an attenmpt to acquaint the students
with the needs of poorer boys from'
the largo cities and also to give stu-
dent leaders an opportunity to teach
these boys from their own experience.
Through this service a good many will
1 probably catch the spirit of living a
jlife of service for the good of society.
The budget this year provides for
sending 360 boys to this camp for two
weeks. This group will be divided into
three sections of 120 each, making the
camp last for six weeks with 120 boys
present all of the time. No boy is al-
lowed to stay more than the regular
two) weeks. The camp this year is un-
der the direction of Theodore Horn-
berger, '27, who has been connected
with it for several seasons. All of the
'officials and leaders are also students,
making the enterprise entirely under
the direction of University men.
Lasteyear more than $1200 was con-
tributed by the student body. A num-
ber of fraternities and sororities hae
already sent in $12 each which pays
expenses of one boy in amp-r two
weeks. The local Rotary club under
the leadership of "Tad" Wieman, has
given the enterprise a very favorable
endorsement. The faculty, alumnin and
several luncheon chibs, are arranging
to send boys also.
The first section will be composed
of Ann Arbor, Jackson, and Flint boys
who will be in Camp from June 27
l until July 9. The second and third
sections will be composed of Detroit
boys who will be in two periods unt
August 6.
Part of the budget this year pro-
vides for the construction of two cab-.
ins which will cost $500 each. These
can only be built and furnished by
the support of the student body in
this drive. If enough support is given
this year it is probable that an addi-
f tional section of two weeks will be
I held, bringing up the total of boys
bcnefited to 500.
In regard to the tags, no price is
set, each person giving what he feels
proper. It is hoped by the directors
of the drive that the average gift
will be fifty cents however, thus in-
I suring the success of the project.
The final personnel of the staff of
leaders has not been made as yet,
Hornberger requests that any stu-
dents interested in this work for the
six and perhaps eight weeks get in
touch with him.
In a last appeal to the student body
Snthe faculty the Association calls
tattention to the fact that the project
I is entirely a student enterpris and
that its continuation in the future as
