T h e Arlington Community Pfc. Donald Donner Released P0W years, and each year contributes to several worthy causes and in- stitutions, the btulget amounting to about $2,500 The numerous "drives" and col- lections taken in the community by various organizations results in considerable annoyance and loss of time, and to eliminate this, yet give community support to worthy causes, it is felt that there should be a consolidated one-campaign fund raising drive. While the C~mmunity Chest was organized to do this, the sup- port of the chest has gradually fallen off, and it is thought the Good Neighbor Organization has a m0re universal appeal. On Tuesday night E. A. Nora. president of the United Good Neighbors; George Duecy, fund chairman, and W. B. Young. county co-ordinator chairman, will be present and will explain the U G N idea. Officers of the Community Chest are: President, Alton Funk; Vice.Pres., Stu Marshlain; Treas.. Howard Palmer; See., Olive Rod; Trustees, Thos. Terjeson. Jack Hammer. Last fall the Chest raised $1,500, and allocated $2,475.00, there having been a balance carried. over from the previous year.
