TO LAUNCH DRIVE SOON
Asks for Contributions to European
Student Relief Fund.
A call will be sent out to all univcr
sity and college students within the
next few- dan to contribute to the u-
ropean Student Relief Fund, which is
being launched by the Hooter Amencan
Relief Association, R. J. Kerner, chair-
man of the local committee, announced
today. The drive is made all over the
country to college men and women, as it
is believed that a greater appeal can be
made to them.
The call will be made simultaneously
to every high school and college, and- the
association hopes to raise from the na
tin's students over a million dollars dur
ing the holidays, in order that the starv
ing and needy school children of Europe
can have immediate relief.
"Higher education in Europe is at a
standstill," says Profesor Kerner. 'Text
books cannot be bought, professors re
ceive the pay of street cleaners and stu
dents and professors starve or die of ex
"It is an ordinary news item in Eu
ropean papers that tell of some stu
dent djing of hunger in the streets, or
of a professor committing suicide. The
little money to be had is swallowed up
by the enormous prices and- tlie uneven
rate of exchange."
Although plans for the local drive
have not been completed, contributions
may beent in to R. J. Kerner, 1306
Rosemary lane, at any time, and the
contributor will be given credit.
