Service Fund
Starts Drive
Money To Aid In Relief
Of Foreign Students
Approval of a proposed drive to
raise money for the World Student
Service Fund has been given by all
active campus student groups at
series of meetings of the local execu-
tive committee held recently in Lane
The purpose of the World Student
Service Fund was pointed out to the
representatives of the campus organ-
izations as a means of providing re-
lief for the thousands of refugee stu-
dents around the world. Reports
from Europe, it was said, indicate
that large numbers of students have
been interned in concentration camps
and although attempts have been
made to establish an educational pro-
gram to be followed by the internees,
these efforts have met with only me-
diocre success because of the lack of
funds necessary to continue the work.
Aside from continental Europe at-
tention was drawn to Asia where, it
was pointed out, conditions also de-
manded immediate relief. The cur-
rent Chinese-Japanese war has driv-
en thousands of Chinese students in-
land where continuance of their stud-
ies is almost an impossibility with the
lack of facilities necessary for fur-
thering their education.

Not only is the Philharmonic the
oldest concert group in the United
States, it is also the third oldest sym-
phony orchestra in the world. There
were only 63 members when the band
was first formed in 1842. Today there
are 104. For almost 20 years the
Philharmonic was without a rival,
ard thus laid the foundation for the
development of musical taste in New
A world-wide broadcast will take
place Sunday also from the Hill
Auditorium stage, with the Philhar-
monic giving its usual Sunday con-
cert. Deems Taylor, music annota-
tor, will speak at intermission time
from his studio in New York.
It has been estimated that more
people listen to these Sunday after-
noon concerts over the radio than
have listened to the orchestra at
their public appearances since the
Igroup's inception !
