In 'Starvation Day' Drive

Students Urged
To Give Price
Of Meal Today
Donations To Be Accepted
In University Buildings,
Dormitories, Sororities
University students will be asked
to contribute the price of one meal
today in the Starvation Day Drive
to raise funds of students in war-
torn Europe and China.
Tables will be set up in various
University buildings to receive stu-
dent donations in small globes. Sor-
crities, fraternities, league houses,
dormitories, and cooperatives will
have special representatives assigned
to l collect student contributions.
The Starvation Day Drive is part
of the campaign of the World Stu-
dnt Service Fund to raise $100,000
to continue the work of the European
St:'dent Serice Fund in European
countries and of the Far Eastern
Student Service Fund in free China.
One-half of the fund will be sent to
the Far East and the other half to
E'jrope, where it will be distributed
in internment, prisoner-of-war and
refugee camps.
Money Sent To N.Y.
Money collected in the campus
drive will be sent directly to the non-
par:tisan committee of the World Stu-
dent Relief Fund in New York, head-
ed by Dr. Homer P. Rainey.I
In Europe the European Student
Relief Fund, a wartime combination
of the relief world of the World's
Student Christian Federation and
the International Student Service
with headquarters in Geneva will dis-
tribute funds. Headed by Hans
ocshardt, member of the Swiss
Polytechnic School of Zurich, the
committee administers relief through I
Werld Alliance of the YMCA, the
only organization approved by the
belligerent governments to work in
prisoner-of-war camps.
Chinese students in desperate need
of food and books will receive aid
through the National Student Relief
Committee headed in China by Dr.
J. Usang Ly, president of Chiao Tung
University. The funds will be han-
dled locally by 18 municipal com-
Volunteers Support Fund
The World Student Service Fund
is supported by volunteer service
largely, Jean Fairfax, '41, general
chairman for the campus drive,
pointed out.
The drive aims to raise funds for;
food, books, and recreation equip-
ment to aid students driven from
universities and colleges by the war
who are faced with starvation or
confinement to camps for the dura-
tion of the war.
American money is at present a
ratio of one to 18 to Chinese money.
Therefore $10 will support a Chinese
student for an entire year. In Eur.
ope funds will be used mainly to send
books and supplies since food cannot
be sent to Europe.
The Campus Starvation Drive is
sponsored by Congress, the League
pouncil, the Union Council, Panhel-
lenic, the Student Religious Associa-
tion the .Intercooperative Council, I
Assembly, the Interfraternity Coun-
cil, the Inter-Guild Council, and The
