showing a low caries rate among
Europeans on st:rvation diets.

gin March 24, the groups will
pledge funds for the purchase of
a heifer. By this plan of construc-

needy farmers. This provides them
with the opportunity of restocking
The campus drive is part of a
national movement sponsored by
the Brethren Service Committee.
Approximately 1,440 heifers have
already been shipped out by the
national organization, and have
been received by farmers in Czech-
oslavakia, France, Greece, Bel-
guim and Poland.
French Rations Short
In stressing the importance of
the drive, Goldstein said that in-
formation about conditions in
France show that rations are very
short. Each person is allowed 10
ounces of bread a day, 5 ounces of
fat a month, 3.3 ounces of meat a
week and only one pound of sugar
a month. Milk is available only
to children under 13 years of age,
and that in small quantities.
Pledge cards were enclosed with
the letters and should be returned
to the Famine Committee with
the amount of the pledge on them.
Money for Salary
Galens, honorary medical so-
ciety, voted this week to appro-
priate a salary for a full time, non-

Hospital for one year.

be on attendance at deaths and

students in the functions of the
Money for the chaplain's sal-
ary will come out of the Galens'
