WSSF Money to Swell
Community, War Chests
By EDITH NEWTON
University students will have an opportunity to aid Amer
ican students and prisoners of war in all parts of the world
when the World Student Service Fund drive opens on the
campus next Monday, according to Martha Jane Switzer, co
chairman of the drive.
The WSSF is a fund-raising organization which operates
primarily in the colleges and universities of the United States
in Older lu raise muncy o\,\u
dent war relief. Ita help goes to
students and faculty who are
victims of the war in all parts of
the world, literature sent out by
the head office of the WSSF de
clares, but this year schools con
tributing may designate for which
cause they wish their donations
to be used.
Three Choices Given
The three choices University
students will have in giving their
money will be between assistance
to prisoners of war, assistance
to American students in foreign
countries, or to American stu
dents attending school in the
Contributions to the WSSF
will be the campus’ part in the
combined Community and War
Chest drive which is now taking
place in Eugene. Students will
not be asked to contribute to the
Chest directly, the WSSF contri
butions being the channel through
which campus people can aid in
supporting the Chest movement.
The WSSF was the first or
ganization to see the importance
of meeting not only physical but
also intellectual and spiritual
needs of students and professors.
By appealing to students to help
fellow students and other young
people, this specialized organiza
tion builds student solidarity
around the world.
The work of student war relief
began in 1937 when the Far East
ern student service fund raised
money for students in war-torn
China. With the spread of war to

Later that same year the two
funds were merged into the World
Student Service Fund. As the war
has spread the fund has expand
ed with its activity to meet
needs in all parts of the world.
Last year a total of $113,000
was raised by the WSSF, and
since its beginning in 1938 a total
of $265,000 has been contributed
to the fund.
The WSSF is sponsored by the
United States committee of in
ternational student service and
the United States secions of the
world’s student Christian feder
ation. The latter includes the na
tional intercollegiate Christian
council, the student volunteer
movement, the interseminary
movement and the university
commission of the council of
church boards of education.

held a house meeting, during'
which the extent of the damage
was determined and each man’s
actions accounted for.
The grand piano in the main
lobby was badly damaged by the
water and had to be taken apart
and dried. Repairs needed to get
the piano in working condition
again may prove very expensive
according to Mrs. Turnipseed.
After several boys in the halls
had written statements concern
ing the evening’s events, it was
generally concluded that the van
dalism had been done by an or
ganized group of outsiders. The
halls in which furniture had been
stacked against the doors had
been entered and left by open
windows to the outside.
The full monetary extent of
the damage had not been deter
mined by midnight last night, but
several pieces of furniture had
been broken and a number of
phonograph records stolen.
Further investigation is being

To Enlist Men
A joint procurement board of
the navy and marine corps will
be on the campus December 3
and 4 to enlist all men who can
qualify for the deferment classes
which they offer.
Any man who contemplates ap
pearing before the board must
have all his papers checked by
Dr. Carl F. Kossack, campus
armed forces advisor, before he
can be examined by the officers.
This will be the last chance for
men to enlist on the campus be
fore the groups are closed to en
listment to all except incoming
freshmen. There will be little
time between the board’s visit
and the end of the term when
enlistments are to be closed.
Miss Ethel Stone, secretary of
the University press, who has
been a familiar sight to journal
ism students for many years, will
remain at her desk taut one more
day. Miss Stone is leaving for
New York next Monday where
she will reside with her sister.
The University press staff
gave her an informal farewell
party Monday afternoon, at
which they presented her with a
gift as a token of appreciation
for her services.
Miss Stone began her career at
the press many years ago while
still a student at the University.
Upon her graduation she took
over the position permanently.
