versity Fresh Air Camp on the shores
of Lake Patterson. On that day stu-
dent volunteers wil patrol the campus
and down town districts, and in re-
turn for any contribution will give the
famous tag with the picture of "the
boy on the diving board."
A goal of $1,500 has been set for'
this year's drive by Prof. F. N. Mene-
fee, of the mechanical engineering'
department, director of the camp..
This is almost $400 above the amountI
taken in last year, about $1,100. LastI
year 260 boys were enabled to spend
years now, with contributions in the
past ranging from $700 to $2,100. It
has been estimated that students
contribute annually 20 per cent of the;
funds used to send the boys to camp.,
Though changing in location, man-
agement and personnel often, the
Camp has always remained steadfast
to its"one purpose - to return after
four weeks to their community un-
derprivileged boys "not only strong-
er physically but better adjusted so-
cially and emotionally."
Campus organizations have coop-
erated with the drive committee in the
past, and will be requested to do, so
again this year. Some of the organ-
izations that helped in .the campaign
last year were Assembly, the League
Houses, Wyvern, Scroll, Mortar Board,
Senior Society, Union, LF.C., Dorm-
itories, Congress, the Cooperative
Houses, "M" Club, the various honor-
ary societies and Alpha Phi Omega.
At the head of this year's drive is
Bert Ludy, '42. Other members of the
committee are Don Harness, '43E,
publicity; Grace Volkman, '42, and
Lin Buck, '42E, girls' organizations;
Robert G. Shedd, '42, boys' organiza-
tions; Earle Harris, '44, collections;
Gertrude French, '41, merchants; end
Irving Koval, '42E, service.
Previously the drive has taken place
in two days, but this year's cam-
paign will be confined to one day,
Friday. On that day not only the cam-
pus, but downtown districts will be
Letters have been sent to the var-
ious organizations on campus\asking
