1944 WILL SOLICIT FUNDS THIS WEEK
$1,000 Goal of Drive; Will Be Collected Door to Door
In order to build up funds which will maintain some semblance of class unity during the war and after, the officers of the Class of 1944 announced last night that they will conduct a campaign for the needed money this week.
Letters are being sent to all men who have left College since September, and a door-to-door canvass will be run this week and next to enable men still around Cambridge to give their share.
A total of $1,000 is needed for running expenses to meet annual appeals from the Alumni Association, and upon which to base post-war reunion plans, it was announced. All 1944 men are automatically made members of the Alumni Association when the class answers the annual appeal.
In charge of the drive in each of the Houses are: Dunster, John D. Eusden '44; Leverett, Thomas L. Hoffman '44; Winthrop, Thomas N. Bridge '44; Lowell, Grover C. Hansen '44; Eliot, John Corrigan '44; Kirkland, Edward T. Wentworth '44 and Hugh M. Hyde for out of House members. Supervising the campaign is Class Secretary Andrew W. Welch, Jr. '44, in place of Class Treasurer Dan H. Fenn, Jr. '44, a member of the Enlisted Reserve Corps who leaves for Devens tomorrow.
Class reunions in the near future are almost certainly out of the question, according to Fenn, but some provision must be made for holding together the class at future dates. The fund will be used to meet such expenditures as the Class Committee finds necessary.
