Once again the Fresh Air camp
makes its appeal to the student
body. Opportunity for the stu-
dents of the campus to "do their
bit," so that more than 400 poor
and undernourished youngsters
may enjoy the benefits of a two-
week outing, will be afforded them
when tags priced at 50 cents and
one dollar will be sold at various
points on the campus today.
Although the preliminary can-
vass of campus organizations yield-
ed a gratifying sum, the goal for
the student drive which has been
set for $3,000, will not be realized
unless the entire student body sup-
ports the drive.

ed boys.

For eight weeks every

summer, more than 400 needy and
deserving boys are selected by wel-
fare organizations of Detroit andI
Ann Arbor for a vacation period of
two weeks.
By dividing the camp into four
sections of 12 days each, . over-
crowding is avoided and each boy
can get the full benefit of the time
he spends away from the city. The
first section will begin on June 24
and continue to July 5. Two daysl
later the second contingent of
youngsters will arrive at the camp
staying until July 19. The third'
group will arrive on the twenty-
first of the month and leave on
Aug. 2. The last section will spend'
from Aug. 4 to Aug. 16 at the camp.
Transportation to and from the
camp will be by bus and automo-
bile.
The water is the main attraction
at the camp, but boating and
swimming are not the only items
that the camp offers. Medical ex-)
aminations, discipline, drill, stories
about the camp-fires, songs, talks
with leaders, explorations in thel
great woods back of the camp andI

along the mile of the lake shore, all
under the supervision of the coun-
sellors recruited mostly from the
student body, help to complete the
picture of what the camp does.
Wholesome Food Furnished.
Perhaps the outstanding feature
of the camp, however, is the foodl
that is furnished to the youthful
bodies who are undernourished
from irregular eating and the lack
of a balanced diet. The camp is
operated on a basis to give every
boy plenty of wholesome food, sev-
eral "helping" each meal, and a
quart of milk a day per boy, and ice
cream and chicken on Sunday.
The actual gain in weight per boyI
for every 12 day period is three
pounds, or a total of 1,200 pounds
of flesh is put on boys during the
summer, and this in spite of a
strenuous program of swimming,
basebell, track, tennis, and hiking.
The number of boys given this
vacation will depend exactly upon
the response today. Every dollar.
and half-dollar donated will go to
the operation of the camp for this
summer. The season lasts just as
long as the funds last. The stu-
dont counsellors are, of course,
anious to live with the boys for
cight full weeks, so that the pur-.
pose of the camp may be achieved
"To foster and develop a zest for
the best that life has to offer."
