Yale Plans Memorial for Heroes

Yale has begun work toward its war memorial by appointing committees for the raising of funds and the choice of sculptors. Their object will be to raise a sum of $150,000 for the erection with suitable setting of a memorial to the Yale men who lost their lives in the war.

It is the immediate purpose of the committee on securing funds to send to all Yale men the information regarding the nature and purposes of the Memorial and of the manner in which funds will be secured. It is not planned to conduct the campaign as an ordinary drive for money, for the deep sentiment associated with the whole movement makes quite undesirable any campaign for funds in the manner made familiar by appeals for money for war purposes.
