RED CROSS DRIVE UNDER WAY TODAY
Entire Amount for Benefit of Wounded War Veterans--Drive to End Wednesday--Nash Heads Committee
The drive to secure funds for the Cambridge chapter of the American Red Cross will open this morning when canvassers from each class start work in an endeavor to secure a contribution from every undergraduate of the University. The money collected will be used wholly to benefit disabled veterans of the World War, and none of it will go toward running expenses or upkeep of the chapter itself. The University committee in charge consists of Bradley De Lamater Nash '23, of Brookline, chairman; 1922, John Crocker of Fitchburg; 1923, Vinton Chapin of Boston; 1924, Daniel Stewart Holder of New Orleans, La, 1925, Josiah Humphrey Child of Westwood.
The territory to be covered has been divided among a large number of canvassers in the hope that each will cover his particular assignment thoroughly. The committee wishes to emphasize the fact that every man, while canvassing, must carry a letter form Nash as a means of identification to the college police. At the suggestion of Mr. E. S. Emery '87, assistant comptroller of the University, men are advised to do this canvassing before 9.30 o'clock in the evening in order to avoid the danger of fake soliciting in the dormitories. The committee wished to have the amount collected represent a contribution of something from every undergraduate. The average contribution should be between five and ten dollars, but as it is impossible for some men to give as much as this, those who can contribute more are urged to do so.
At 7.15 o'clock on Wednesday evening there will be a meeting of all solicitors in the Breakfast Room of Randolph Hall at which time all money that has been collected will be turned over to the committee.
