Slowly, surely, and with a constant

istering tho membership campaign.
At six o'clock lttBt night, tho total

Taking a proportionate increase as a
standard, tho campaign officials fcol

To Reach 1000 Tonight.
To bo satisfied KerKlndorn declares
that tho big hand of tho clock must
point accurately to the 1000 numcrnl
tonight. To many this appears to bo
an exceptionally high minimum mem
bership, but the same degree of
doubtfulness was expressed by out
siders last year upon the Inauguration
of tho financial campaign. ThlB is the
ono groat consolation to the member
ship orilistment officials.
Under tho direction of Will ForbeB
about 150 men are earnestly probing
every recess and corner for a possible
membership candidate. To obllvate
.the probable danger of approaching
any Individual twice, and also to has

adopted the custohfary system of label

Not that a good feed is a sure road
to conviction among now students,
but merely as a means to an end of
creating some real, whole-hearted
spirit, the university Y. M. C. A. has
undertaken to furnish several of the
"pacifiers" to the students this week.
The first one occurred Monday even
ing, which was considered a big suc
cess. Tho second one, which was
pulled off last night, was devoted al
most exclusively to a comparison of
individual efforts to enlist new men,
and outline a set plan for today. One
of tho significant features about tho
feeds and campaign in general is that
a largo number of Greek letter men
are Interested and have contributed
their services and support to the Y.
M. C. A.
Tho fee for membership to the local
organization Is $1.00. A ticket show
ing a membership in the local Y. M.
C A., however, will bo accepted by
all of tho city Y. M. 6. A.'s over tho
country, and "will afford tho owner all
the advantages peculiar to Y. M. C. A.
work,, including stopover privileges.
