Columnist Fleeson got her first
taste of politics early in Sterling,
Kansas, where her father had a
clothing store and, according to a
statement of Miss Fleeson's in
Time magazine, "ran the town
from the back room."
After graduation from the Uni
versity of Kansas, where she re
ceived her A. B. degree, Column
ist Fleeson went East and got a
job on a small Long Island news
paper. In 1927, she graduated to
the New York Daily News.

Several years ago in an eight
page column banner splashed
across the front- page of the
Washington Star were the words

Miss Fleeson's byline was the re

the White House desk. In journal

scoop. She also was one of the
first columnists to suggest that

award for meritorious work during

Knowles Addresses 300
Tonight, you are the most important people in the world, Rev. Rex Knowles told
All University Fund workers Tuesday evening..

"what you are doing tonight is
the most important task now be
ing done at the University. Some
of the persons you are helping
tonight," Knowles said, "don't
gripe about long lines or the food
in the dorm, they have no dorm."
"We must read between the
lines," he said, "and find out what
it is that makes people lose track
of reality, that makes them lose
sight of God's world. These lines
represent the lines of people with
mental illness," he said.
"There are lines of students,"
Knowles said, "who have no place
to sleep, and nothing to eat, but
they want to learn. There is
a need; we must serve," he con
cluded. WUS Representative Speaks
King Bradow, World University
Service traveling secretary, told
AUF members at the "Kick Off"
banquet that the campaign of the
"Campus Community Chest" was
a "bright spot on the horizon."
The AUF drive, Bradow said,
is an indication that students are
beneficial to society and they are
participating in the "onward
search for truth." There is a
significent "oneness" in University
students and faculty facing uni
versal problems in a united ef
fort, he said.
"We greatly appreciate what you
have done for us at the Institute
for Cellular Research," Dr. Don

told AUF members at the pre
