Three hundred men and women met
at a banquet last night at Lane hall
to begin the drive for the $25,000 Y.
M. C. A. Friendship war fund. This
banquet was given in preparation for
the mass meeting to be held at 7:30
o'clock tonight in hill auditorium.
An example of the attitude of the
students toward this campaign was1
shown by the enthusiasm with which
the work was taken up. Although no
pledges were requested four students
donate $250, and pledging $100 and
three $50 each.
Rev. Lloyd C. Douglass, the first
speaker, pointed out that in fulfilling1
the quota of $25,000, students would
help to keep up the morale of the
soldiers in the camps. He showed that
there are at the present time 6,000,000
prisoners of war who need our help,
Many Speakers on Program c
A practical demonstration of how to
approach the students in soliciting for
the "Y" fund was presented by Rollin
R. Winslow, '19L, and Norman H. Ib-
sen, '18E. Francis Bacon, '02, acted
as toastmaster of the banquet. Ad-'
dresses were delivered by Prof. George
W. Dowrie of the economics depart-
ment, Prof. Clarence T. Johnston of
the engineering college, L. W. Thoms,
'18E, who sold the biggest number of
bonds among the students during the
recent Liberty Loan campaign, and
Miss Ruth Connely, '18.
Women Should be Enthusiastic
Miss Connely, representing the wom-
en, made a strong impression upon the
campaigners. She pointed out that the
Friendship war fund should especially]
interest the women on the campus be-
cause most of the men present will be'
at the front sooner or later. "We arel
going to oversubscribe our quota," she!
declared, "and will show the men 'over
there' that we too stand ready to just-l
ify the efforts they are making." E
Letter Lands Work'
Mr. N. C. Fetter, secretary of the
U-niversity "Y", made public the fol-
lowing letter from Prof. Moritz Levi ofo
the French department:.
"I enclose herewith a check for the
Students' Friendship war fund for the
purpose of encouraging the noble
work of the Y. M. C. A. We civilians
will never be able to fully appreciatea
the valuable services which the asso-;
ciation is now rendering our soldiers
both here and abroad."
Tonight's .Ifeeting for Information
The meeting tonight is to be for in-4
formation, and not for taking pledges.4

When we hear from our camps'
in this coutry and our men in
France how much the "Y" means
to them, when we realize that
many a soldier over there gets'
his only glimpse of home .life and
comforts and all his entertain-
men through this agency, it seems
to me that every woman must feel
it not only her duty but her priv-
ilege to give generously to the Y.
