Announcement came last night that the annual alumni contribution of the University for 1936 is, to date, approximately twice as large as that received last year. Although figures could not be obtained on the detailed progress of the University's Tercentenary money-raising program, it was judged from the announcement by Harvard Fund Headquarters in Wadsworth House that Tercentenary gifts were rolling in at double the rate of that of ordinary years.
