The infirmary in the Health

be used to gain admittance at any
hour when the health service is
not operating.
Although this service was established primarily with the aim of
caring for the soldiers on the campus, the health service desires that
all students make use of it when
necessary. Dr. Chambers said.

So that all soldiers stationed

Union board is sponsoring a
drive to urge students to share

To Give Talk
On Monday

25, over 200 volunteer workers have
personally contacted every student,
as well as the campus organizations.
The University faculty and staff
members continued the record -breaking by turning in $7,221.80 at
the end of their part of the drive
on Thursday. Comptroller Frank
D. Peterson, chairman of this division, has been confident that the
goal of $6,600 would be reached.
In spite of wartime conditions
and a student body almost half its
normal size, this is the largest
amount the University has contributed In history.
Largest contribution by a single

Workers Send Goal
Of War Chest Over Top
Our congratulations to Algernon Ditkson,
chairman of the War Chest drive, and the 200
workers who sent the campus goal of $700
the top to reach an unprecedented total
of over $1,000. The students cooperaied wholeheartedly in their contributions.
A sjx'cial note of thanks goes to the military
siudents who contributed generously although
their furloughs were but a few davs awav.
The success of the faculty drive is to be esje-ciallappreciated when one realizes that a l.
cent higher goal than that of last year was
attained although the number of staff members
has declined appreciably.
