The Student Senate-sponsored
Campus Chest is slated to start
Dec. 5 with “a dollar an Ag” as
its goal.
The $7,000 dollars to be raised
would represent the only fund
drive of this year and would be
used for all worthwhile organiza
tions and individuals heretofore
solicited separately.
Of the total sum collected, 1.0
K:r cent will be allocated to World
University Service.
WUS is an international vohm-
tary agency which operates a pro
gram of material assistance and
international education to aid the
world university community. It
has an advisory relationship with
the United Nations Economic and
Social Council and also works
closely with other UN agencies.
It was created in 1937 to meet
student needs resulting from Jap-
anese-Chinese War and eventually
spread to other Asian countries as
well as those in Europe.
Under WUS, s t u d e n t s and
professors at foreign universities
receive aid to support such pro
jects as student health and stu
dent housing. It also aids student
refugees and supplies those stu
dents in need with food and cloth-
Warned by the electric atmos
phere, Macmillan tried to smooth
the way for NATO’ unity by de
claring upon his arrival: “We are
in the same boat—don’t let us or
anyone else rock it.”
But this was small relief to the
feelings of the French. They be
lieve Macmillan and President Ei
senhower, who will attend a NATO
summit conference here in mid-
December, already had rocked the
boat by delivering 900 small arms
to the troops of Tunisian President
Habib Bourguiba.
The British and American view
is that the step was necessary to
forestall any Tunisian-Soviet arms
deal, and that Bourguiba prom
ised the weapons would be used
only for Tunisian security.
Macmillan returned to the Brit
ish Embassy through the cordons
of riot forces after his first round
of talks with Premier Felix Gail-
A spokesman for the French del
egation said the discussions thus
far had been frank but that no
common decision had been reach
investors’ reasonable debt ratio
of seven per cent on bonds.
The tax rate distribution iis now
$1; the new valuation would, raise
the rate only one cent, therefore
causing no heavier burden on tax
payers, ^rown said.
The $500,000 in bonds would be
used for paving one-third of the
streets and for paving all inter
sections. Property owners would
be responsible for paving the third
of the street on their side .'ind for
curbs and gutters. This would re
present an approximate cost of
$5.50 per linage foot, or about $4
per linage foot without curbs and
gutters, according to Brown.
In fthoi't, WUS- is" an Amei’ican
student’s way of helping his fel
low student in a foreign country
obtain the education he wants and
needs to lead a useful and peace
ful life.
