191T C IARLA Our New York Friends FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLAR CAMPAIGN D URING this past winter a financial campaign has been carried forward, which vitally interests Muhlenberg College. Five hundred thousand dollars is the final aim of the campaign for Muhlenberg College and Mt. Airy Theological Seminary. Of the total sum to be raised, Muhlenberg College is to receive $275,000. A number of successful campaigns have been conducted, of which the first and most successful one in many ways was that held in Allentown in October, 1915. It was planned to raise $60,000, and almost $70,000 was reached. Leading business and professional men participated in the movement, and one of the great surprises of the week was a gift of $5,000 for the endowment fund given by Mr. Edwin H. Stine, an alumnus of Muhlenberg College. Not a few citizens of Allen- town contributed $1,000. Following this successful campaign, an excursion of New York laymen visited Muhlenberg College and Mt. Airy Seminary. They were entertained at noon in the commons by the ladies’ auxiliary of Muhlenberg College. This auxiliary which now numbers over two hundred members, was one of the results of the Allentown cam- paign. It plans to provide supplies to the commons and to work for other needs of the college. After the visit of the New York laymen, who were entertained by the college orchestra and glee club, several representatives of the campaign committee visited Buffalo and secured $15,000 in twenty-four hours. Similar visits were made at Rochester and 21

191 T CIARLA Utica, N. Y. The campaign which followed the Allentown campaign was that at Reading, which netted $30,000. The biggest campaign in regard to financial results was held in February, 1916, in Philadelphia. It resulted in contributions amounting to over $80,000. In this campaign the largest single gift was given by one family, amounting to $10,000. The city of Lancaster has raised over $20,000, and Lebanon has contributed $15,000. At this time a campaign is being conducted at Pottstown. Other towns that have not been covered will be similarly canvassed by organizations of laymen of one hundred or more, formed into bands under captains, and meeting daily to report and plan for their work. The income of the money will be used in the college to pay for the erection of the new Allentown Preparatory School, and to liquidate existing obligations incurred by the College. This campaign, which is now materializing, is the outcome of a campaign of several years of instruction throughout eastern Pennsylvania. It is the culmination of plans carefully matured, and will relieve the College of immediate burdens. The College, however, is of necessity planning still larger things, to meet the increasing demands of its work. Doctor Haas. Dorms 22
