HARVARD FUND GAINS $6,162,37 IN ONE WEEK

NUMBER OF CONTRIBUTORS IS 224 FOR WEEK

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Over 2500 men have contributed to the Harvard Fund up to June 12, according to reports issued yesterday. The total amount is now over $105,000.

During the past week 224 men contributed $6,162.37. This is a larger amount than that of the previous week, but the number of contributors is slightly smaller.

With less than two weeks remaining of the first administrative year interest in the Fund seems to be steadily growing.

The Harvard Fund Council confidently hopes that men who have, for one reason or another, been prevented thus far from subscribing to the Fund, will realize the importance of giving something now. "Enclosed you will find my check for $25 subscription to the Harvard Fund", writes one contributor. "It is a great idea. 100 per cent, represented rather than a large amount of money."

"It is with a good deal of reluctance", says another, "that I send you this paltry subscription to the Harvard Fund. There are three good reasons, however, why I feel inclined to do so, after much hesitation. The first is that I should like to feel that I am putting my shoulder to the wheel and aiding in a worthy cause for the University; the second is that I am taking your circulars at their word and subscribing what I can afford at the present time; and the third is that very shortly I hope to be in a position to contribute a good bit more Until then, I want to join hands with the well-wishers of Harvard."
