Undoubtedly no campus charityI
drive is so obviously deserving of{
wholehearted and complete stud-
ent support as the Galens' annual
tag sale for funds to provide a
Christmas party for crippled
children at the University hos-
pital and to further their work in
handicraft throughout the rest of
the year.
This year )many reasons against
giving to charitable purposes pre-
sent themselves to the average
individual who feels that the de-
pression and economic instability
should count for something. But
in spite of this, the Galens, the
junior honorary medical society,
has kept their quota up to $1,500,
the amount they have asked
for, and got, for several years.
Obviously, however, the weight
of the "depression" argument
against giving freely and unstint-
ingly to this cause is hardly
worthy inasmuch as now, if never
before, should charity and the
spirit sometimes called Christian
be displayed,
The Daily is grateful for such
an aim as this, coming from any
student organization, that it may
give its entire support to the
cause. In the interests of this
charitable purpose, it should be
manifestly easy for every student
and faculty man on the campus
to contribute a dollar or a half-
dollar toward a Christmas party
and some little cheer for the un-
fortunate chaps at the hospital.
Let's back the Galens in their
two-day drive!

C (ontr ibutor s are askedl to be brieif,

opinion of The Daily.

This system ueadens those that
might be great, discourages the fewj
simzpletons that struggle along un-

is forced back and. his throat is'

"Is it all right with your parents?'
Decision number three. Sunday

"Disobeying the college rulcs! No
