When you give to the Ann Arboi
Community and War Fund cam-
paign, you will be contributing to 13
local health and welfare agencies
and 23 national war relief organiza-
tions at one time.
This year Ann Arbor faces a task
10 per cent greater than last year.
The 1945 goal is $140,742, an increase
of more than $13,000 over last year's
goal which was over-subscribed.
The Community Fund in Ann Ar-
bor is administered by a seven man
budget committee which only last
August reviewed the needs of all the
agencies in the community and re-
vised estimates upward.
The University quota of $23,000 is
part of the local campaign and goes
into the general fund which is divid-
ed as follows:
1 To Community Agencies in Ann
Arbor, $88,797.
2 To local non-fund agencies,
3 To the National War Fund,
The campaign slogan-"Help All
Three"--has been nationally used
and accurately gives a picture of
what the money is used for. The
funds are given to aid and comfort
our fighting men overseas, to provide
fodd, clothing, and shelter for our
stricken Allies, and to the needy
among our~own citizens here at home.
Agencies Increased
To include a greater number of
persons in its work, the National War
Fund has increased the number of
agencies it helps to support from 17
to 22 this year. Of these, three are
directly working for our fighting men,
the USC which receives about 54 per
cent of the quota, the United Sea-'
men's Service and War Prisoners'
Campaign leaders point out that
this year more money is needed be-
cause of the dislocations on the home

Union Aids
Exclusive Men's Club
Retains Its Traditions
Throwing open its doors to the
numerous service units on campus,
the Michigan Union, the exclusive
club of all University men, is one of
' the outstanding contributors to the
University's war activities.
Union tradition goes back to the
beginning of the century. In 1903-04
plans were first formulated for a
Michigan men's organization. Three
years later, the Union was formally
opened to members and was housed!
in the former Judge Cooley home
which featured one billiard table, a
lounge and two dining rooms serving
a total of 70.
Cooley House Inadequate
By 1914, it was recognized that the
"Cooley House" was inadequate and
a campaign to raise $1,000,000 for a
new. clubhouse resulted in the con-
struction of the present Union build-
ing in 1920. The Michigan Union is
now one of the largest and most com-
plete college Unions in the United
New University men make their
first acquaintance with the Union
during orientation week. As soon as
a student has enrolled in the Uni-
versity, he may go to the Student
Offices located in the first floor of
the building and register as a mem-
ber. No dues are charged since part
of the University tuition goes for this
Union Pin Given
Upon registering each entering
student will be presented with a Un-
ion pin which is the common badge
of all Michigan men. Men on cam-
pus are eligible to use the 22-table
billiards room, the table tennis room,
the bowling alley, swimming pool,
Pendleton library, lounges, confer-
ence rooms and hotel facilities. ,

reputation of being one of the finest
institutions of its kind in the United
The University International Cen-
ter which was established for the
purpose of aiding foreign students
in adjusting to their American en-
vironment serves both as a club for
foreign students and as a place
where Americans can come to know
students from many lands.
Counseling Offered
At the present time there are over
300 foreign students studying at the
University to whom the Center of-
fers counseling service as well as
opportunities for recreational and
vocation activities.
The International Center was first
opened in 1938. One of the most im-
ortant phases of its program is the
English Language Service which aids
foreign students -in speaking and
comprehending English.
Weekly Teas Given
One of the Center's most popular
activities is the weekly. Thursday
afternoonteas. Various language
tables are always organized for these

with their English and American stu-
dents can be helped with other Ian-
guages they may be learning such as
Spanish, Russian, German and
The Counselor's Office was organ-
ized by the University in 1933, even
before the formal organization of the
International Center itself. The
Counselor's Office helps foreign stu-
dents with their problems of housing
and employment registration and
classification, language, immigration
and naturalization and personal af-
Summer Activities Varied
Among the Center's activities dur-
ing the summer were picnics, month-
ly dances, clubs such as the stamp
club and the camera club, a large
reception; for all the new students,
and other recreational activities.
With the Spanish Department the
International Center sponsored a
series of lectures during the summer
session which was delivered by many
prominent Latin Americans taking
courses at the University.
Games Provided
The Center entertains foreign stu-
dents not only by special parties,
but also in their free hours during
the day. Ping pong, bridge and
chess are popular leisure time ac-
tivities among the' foreign students.
During the coming months the
Center plans to expand its activ-
ities in conjunction withgthe inter-
ests of the many foreign students
who are expected.
