University Student YMCA-
YWUA Seeking to Aid:
Foreign. Students -
A campaign to raise $300 for
the relief of foreign students was
started by the Willamette univers
ity student YM-YWCA yesterday;
One hundred dollars of the fnnd
is to go to the" Gin? Ling Chinese
college and the;' remainder is to
be used In other fields. !
. The 'campaign Is under: the di
rection of r Miss j Jennelle Vande
vort, former YW president, and
the chapel i: exercises yesterday
were featured by!
a shdrt. talk giv
en by a Russian student, Crothers,
who has been a
in Russia ; and who understands
the Conditions in Europe from"
first hand experience. r
It was pointed out that a great
number of! foreign students have
to 'struggle for a: long time to get
enough money" tbf attend & college,
and that some who are not strong
enough' cannot stand, the struggle,
and as a result lose all faith in
themselves and In' humanity. The
feeling that other students are
helping1 them in their work,-how"
ever, does a great deal to hdlding
their faith and gives them moral
support to continue their work. I

ring particularly to Mr. Stone and
Victor F. Lawsdn who establish

Reiterating ; his plea for ecox
6myfn government, the president
asserted that' the nation must
make progress in an orderlyV
sound, common sense way. The
right' of private property and seir
government within limits "im
posed not by the fiat of man, but
by the law of the Creator," he

"bar domestic problems are for

"We' have. our enormous debt" to

of taxation to reduce and we' are
reducing it. While- remarkable
progress has been made, the work
Is' yet ' far"; from accomplished." :
