The activities of the Special Gifts) Memorial Gifts and Industry Corporate Gifts Committees will also be terminated on June 3rd With §77,000 pledged to date, §98,000 must be raised in the next three weeks. The goal of the public drive is §50,000. The balance of the needed funds must be raised by Special Gifts, Memorial Gifts and Industry Corporate Gifts Committees. More volunteer workers are needed and anyone interested in serving as a solicitor should phone Campaign Headquarters, Saline 378. Success of the drive and possibly whether or not an adequate new hospital can be built will depend on everyone realizing the necessity of making a sacrificial gift proportionate to that given by others. This is the chance of a life time to have a new hospital and if the new hospital were to save a single life it would be worth all the effort of the volunteer workers and the sacrificial giving of everyone, the Campaign Executive Committee stated. The fact that those who make gifts qualifying them for voting, life memberships in the hospital association is an important reason for giving, for those who give will be able to determine the policies of the proposed hospital. A voting, life membership is granted for each $100 given. It is hoped that any families in the employed group will give on the basis of about $1.28 per week budgeted for a three year period or $200, so as to qualify for two memberships—one for the husband and one for the wife. It is also essential to the success of the drivei that those with a larger income than the average employed family will make Special Gifts of Memorial Gifts pledges Special Gifts Tange from $300 to $1200. Memorials begin at $2100 and range to $18,000. Added to those -who have made memorial gifts are the Saline Savings Bank, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Leutheuser A special feature of the campaign is the group memorial plan by which churches, community or farm organizations may have memorial rooms in their name without any cost to the churcn or organization. Anyone interested in helping his church or organization to have a memorial room in the proposed hospital should write the name of his organization on his " signed pledge card when, he is solicited by a regular member of the campaign organization. No solicitation is being made by churches or organizations, this being done entirely -by volunteer workers of the hospital campaign organization. All costs of the campaign are being paid for by one person Therefore, all gifts to the Hospital Building Fund will be used for the actual building and equipping of the proposed hospital.
