Charity Begins
at Home
E VERY spring brings an increasing number of
crusaders to the campus seeking charity for
various worthy purposes. The causes which these
organizations are working for are no doubt of the
most charitable natures. Nevertheless, the respon-
sibility of keeping them up financially should not
rest upon the students of the Michigan campus.
Our own University camp is a fine example of
the charity work being done by the students. It is
truly a product of the campus and receives support
from the students. Other organizations are also
maintained by the generosity of the students.
There is a limit, however, to the extent that
the ,students will give. Each year brings new
organizations to the canpus in search of help for
their particular work. As a result, the students
are beginning to lose faith in these organizations.
The burden of giving to all is too great.
A campus charity fund would, to a great de-
gree, eliminate the trouble now existing. Students
could give as much as they saw fit to the one cen-
tral fund, and the various organizations could
petition the trustees of this fund for aid. This
would insure a distribution of the fund according
to the merits of the groups petitioning.
Such a plan would not only be greatly advan-
tageous to the students, but would also discourage
organizations which are in no way connected with
the campus from soliciting aid.
