Len Barde Sets
Three new heads of the cam
pus war board were announced
by Chairman Leonard Barde in,
a meeting last night. They are,
Jean Frideger, secretary; Jack
Robinson, head of finance; and
Norma Trevorrow, publicity.
Barde conferred with the
three appointees, explaining the
importance and immensity of the
job to be done.
“Last year, students perished
the thought of war in social ac
tivities,’’ he said. “Those who
tried to do something about it,
received for the most part disin
terest and non-support.
“This is the beginning of a
new era in the war effort on the
campus. Students will wake up
to the fact that there’s work to
be done, and we can do it.’’
The main part of this work will
be in the form of drives for scrap,
for stamps, for knitting, sewing,
cigarettes, candy, bonds to baby
clothes, Red Cross to rubber.
“We are fighting the war
right here, in this University,”
Miss Trevorrow declared. “There’s
not as much time or money for
cokes or bridge or magazines. In
stead the tremendous energies
and manpower should be convert
ed over to progressive defense
work. This is our war to win.”'
