AUF is maintaining its last year's goal of $5,000 In spite of
an expected enrollment drop of approximately 1,000 students.
The organizations to benefit from the monev received durlnsr
the 1952 fund drive will be: Lincoln Community Chest; World Stu
dent Service Fund; and Cancer research at the University.
These organizations were chosen by the student body through
a poll given by AUF. After the polls had been completed, the AUF
executive, solicitations, and publicity boards voted on the percentage
to be given to each of the chosen organizations. The money will be
aiviaea as iouows:

World Student Service Fund is the onlv international studnnt.
relief agency that is recognized by UNESCO, National Student asso
ciation, and World Student Conference Federation. The main cate
gories of WSSF overseas aid are: medical aid; maintainance of rest
centers; aid to refugee and DP students; aid to TB students; edu
cational supplies; emergency food and clothing; community centers
and self-help hostels. WSSF is also the only student relief organiza
tion to which only students and faculty members can contribute.
The Lincoln Community Chest is organized for the task of
financing the needs of 27 private welfare agencies and their
branches. There are six general types of services given by the
local Chest agencies. They are: care of children and aged; mili
tary services; youth guidance; relief and rehabilitation; commun
ity health; and coordinating services.
In return for the funds given to the Chest by students through
AUF, the Chest gives $8,000 to the University YMCA and YWCA.
In other words, the Chest gives the Y group three fourths more
The money given through AUF to further cancer research at
the University will be used for a special microscope for the study
of cell growth and research. Dr. Thomas Pace and his associates
are now studying cells and their relation to cancer, which still re
mains one of the mysteries surrounding cancer.
The purpose of AUF is to organize, promote, and to administer
all solicitation of money from the total student body of the Uni
versity. No other organization may be permitted to ask for do
nations from the total student body of the campus without the per
mission and approval of AUF. The intent of this limitation is to
prevent students from being solicitated by every organization
which might see fit to carry on a campus drive.
All money which is received by AUF is given only to oreaniza-
tions which will use the money on the University campus, in the
state, or for needy students of university age in devastated countries
to runner tneir educations.
