campaign that Marion county will experience
next week. For this purpose
a committee o ftwenty-flve men will
meet at five o'clock this afternoon in
the office of the Fairmont Chamber
kr Commerce.
Featuring the meeting this afternoon
will be an address by Mr. Fencll,
a representative sent to Fairmont
Trom the War Work Council. Mr. Fencll
Is a speaker thoroughly experienced
along the lines of campaign work
and will doubtless prove of much
value in formulating plans and organizing
the campaign.
Plans will be introduced to carry
out the work of both the Y. M. C. A.
campaign, of which Marion county's
quota Is 17.500. and the war camp
community recreation campaign, of
which the county's quota is $800.

the campaign to every community.
Just what committees will be appointed
and what the work of each
committee will be. will he outlined after
the discussion this afternoon.
Marion county has a clean record
as far as recent campaigns are conci
ned, oversubscribing the last Y. M.
C. A.-Red Cross campaign, both the
First and Second Liberty loan campaigns.
and many other smaller campaigns
of less importance. There is
not the least doubt in the minds of
those In charge that the county will
respond jusa as readily to this efTorL
The campaign in Marion county for
totli the Y. M. C. A. fund and for the
war camp community recreation fund
will begin and end at the same time
a national campaign is on to raise
$35,000,000 for Army Y. M. C. A.
