Sophs Tote $30
To CPU, Rally
The Sonhomore class executive com
mittee last night voted unaniomously
to give $25 to the CPU, five dollars to
the "Keep Out of Europe s war
Drive, and to hold over $244 for next
year's class treasury.
Members of the committee present
at the meeting felt that both the CPU
and the peace rally were causes worthy
of donations, and that extra money was
needed for functions during the junior
and senior years. A proposal to ap
propriate the entire $274 surplus to
help build a new pipe organ in Me
morial hal was defeated.
The general faculty will meet
this afternoon to hold the annual
election of three members to the
six-man executive committee, it
