AND MORE TO COME:
Bomber Scholairhip Fund Nets
To date during the current year
the Bomber Scholarship has amassed
$2,064 in actual cash, with the pros-
pect of roughly $3,000 more shortly
in contributions from campus func-
tions already held.
At the beginning of the semester,
the Student Committee set their goal
at $15,000 for the current school year,
up until next May. While so far the
total amount taken in does not ap-
proach this goal, the sum of actual
cash and expected donations does not
include individual contributions from
small campus dances nor the Victory
Ball proceeds, which is expected to
bring the total up to about half of
the amount set for the goal, accord-
ing to Coral DePriester, chairman of
"We're still a long way from our
ultimate goal of $100,000 before thej
war is over," De~riester said, "but
with the way the campus has been
getting behind us in the drive, we're
confident of making our $15,000 this
year, and working up to the $100,000
gradually. The support we've been
getting this year is a big help and
we certainly appreciate it."
Campus functions whose contri-
butions have not yet been added to
the Bomber total for the semester in-
clude $500 from the Goodfellow drive,
about $1,000 from '42 Finale, New
Year's Eve dance, and also donations
from the Union Formal, the Paul
Bunyan Formal, Caduceus Ball, In-
terfraternity Ball, Assembly Ball,
Military Ball, campus scrap drive,
and Victory Vanities.
