Leader Reveals
Gains In Fund
To Aid Greeks
More than $650 has been received
in the local campaign for Greek War
Relief Charles Preketes, president of
the organization directing the drive,
announced yesterday..
The local campaign is part of a
nation-wide drive for $10,000,000.1
Preketes estimated that about $3,-1
000,000 had already been donated.
This money is being used to pur-
chase food, clothing and medical sup-
plies.:-Since most of the able-bodied
men are fighting on behalf of Greek.
liberty, there are few able to work
on the farms or in factories.
"The Greek soldier is not asking
for guns and ammunition-he gets
them from his fleeing enemy-all he
does ask America is to take care of
the women and children at home, to
heal the sick and bind the woundsI
of these who fall in battle. The money
is not for planes or tanks but for a
loaf of bread, a can of beans, a roll
of bandages, a bottle of medicine,"
Preketes declared.
Those on campus who are working
in the drive are Miss Ethel McCor-
mick, social director of the League,
James Harrison, president of the
Interfraternity Council, and Herbert
Watkins, assistant secretary of the
University, and Dr. Harley A. Haynes,
director of the University Hospital.
Each of these people has 250 buttons
which are being sold for one dollar.
