G.W.U. Hospital Fund
Aides Urged to Meet $350,000 Extra Cost Campaign workers in the drive to raise $025,000 to equip the new George Washington University Hos pital yesterday were told the neces sary medical equipment would cost $350,000 more than the original esti mate on which the campaign goal was based. The revised estimate was made by Dr. Cloyd Heck Marvin, president of George Washington University. He attributed it to price rises that have taken place since construction of the hospital began last year at Washington Circle. Seen as Challenge, Both Dr. Marvin and MaJ. Gen. U. S. Grant, HI, campaign chair man, said workers in the drive should regard the expected increase in cost as a challenge not merely to meet the quotas they were originally assigned, but to exceed them as much as possible. “We aren’t through until we have pledged every last soul in this com munity to full support of this great program," the university head de clared. Meanwhile, in the fifth report luncheon for campaign workers, who met yesterday at the Mayflower Hotel, committee chiefs related en couraging progress toward their original goals, with five committees already past their quotas. Total funds pledged and received to date, according to Gen. Grant, are $728,620.91. This represents 78.8 per cent of the initial target figure. • Alumni Contribute. General Grant paid special tribute to contributions from graduates of George Washington University. He said $84,596 had been received so far from 1,118 alumni and pointed out this group represents 44 per cent of the number of contributors. Dr. Elmer L. Kayser, dean of the division of university students at George Washington University, and Dr. Alexander Wetmore, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution and newly elected president of the uni versity’s general alumni association, spoke in support of the campaign.
