$56,000 Quota
Set For Relief
Of City Needy
Campaign Slogan Selected
For Community Fund's
Annual Welfare Drive
Celebrating its 20th anniversary,
the Ann Arbor Community Fund has
set a goal of $56,000 for this year's
drive, $1,200 more than last year.
This year, the campaign is based
on the slogan "Give For American
Needs . . . Right Here At Home"
and leaders are stressing the fact that
local needs are just as important, if
not more so than the need for foreign
relief. The amount set as the quota,
it is pointed out, is barely sufficient
to maintain the relief organization
in the city. Any deficiency in the
total to be raised will seriously cripple
the relief work of Ann Arbor.
in connection with the campaign
faculty members of the University
are being solicited at their offices to
save timhe and trouble. Prof. A. H.
Vlarckwardt of the English depart-
ment is in charge of this year's col-
lection. Assisting him is Prof. M.
J. Thompson of the engineering
school. The quota for the University
is $7,200 and Prof. Marckwardt ex-
pressed the belief that the amount
would be gotten within the required
time limit. Though the University
does not benefit directly from its con-
tributions to the campaign, the char-
acter building effect of the agencies
supported by the Fund are returned
in the long run as personal dividends.

N. A. Cook Describes
New Academy Training
"I traded a 1910 method of police
work for a 1940 model," was the way
Police Chief Norman A. Cook yes-
terday described his recent schooling
at the National Police Academy in
He took a brief training course in
sabotage, espionage and plant pro-
tection in this school which is con-
ducted by the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation. Cook had =taken a three
month course earlier at the academy
last spring.
He plans to start a local school in
this same work this fall for peace
officers in the local community.
"There are now 500 graduates of
the academy who are passing on the
things they have learned to other
officers in their own localities. Even-
tually every officer in the country
will have the benefit of knowing the
latest and most modern police meth-
ods," he said.
