Drive Nixed By A UF Freedom Fund Plea Denied All University Fund board has voted not to authorize an organized solicitation on cam pus for the Freedom Fund. It was proposed that AUF either carry on an immediate emergency solicitation itself to aid the Negro students in southern universities or that AUF authorize the Stident Christian Council to conduct a drive. Aur, as tne only cam pus organization set up to solicit students and facul ty, had to give its permission before the SCC could plan a drive. "We feel it is too late In the year to plan and con duct a successful solicitation," said AUF president Sue Car koski. "It would be too difficult to reach the entire campus in the few weeks of school left," she said. "However, we do en courage everyone who is in terested in contributing to the Freedom Fund set up by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo ple to do so," she added. They may send their dona tions to the YWCA office in the city Union or in the Ag Student Union. "Next year AUPwilllnclud the NAACP's Freedom Fond as one of the charities listed in the fall poll," Miss Carkosld said. "Then the campus will have an opportunity to vote for it as a recipient of a por tion of next year's funds." lhe Faculty Drive held this spring netted $833 from 181 contributions, drive chairman Nancy Raun reported. This was way over the goal of $700, she said. Faculty Drive contributions bring the total for this year's AUF drive to over $4,420.
