20 Oct. 12, 1949 MM«B CHy Globe-GixtlU, Mai a a City. la. Plan Launched to Endow UIU Fayette—Launching of a "living endowment league" has been announced by Upper Iowa university In an unique financial plan that will sustain itself from year to year to meet present needs and guarantee future stability for the school. . Faculty, students, alumni and friends will be invited to join the league which involves no pledges or notes, only voluntary annual dues. With a goal of 5,000 units, the plan, which has been successful in many schools including th University of Minnesota, is basei on the idea that the alumni and friends of the college themselves constitute a living endowment and that they pay membership dues the equivalent of the interest on a nominal gift but keep the prin- cipal of the gift in their own possession, it was explained by Doctor V. T. Smith, president of the university. The campaign will be preceded jy a newspaper and radio publicity campaign including such areas as Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Mason City, Charles City and Oelwein. "Instead of giving the college a gift of $500, for example, the member keeps the principal and pays dues of $20 per year which is interest at 4 per cent on the principal. This annual payment of $20 in dues constitutes a membership of 2 units of $10 each," it was explained. Goal of the membership drive is 5,000 units, each unit calling for dues of $10 per year. Each member indicates in his application the number of membership units he wishes to accept. Some persons can join for only one unit, it was pointed out, while others will join for 2, 5 or 10 or more units. Radio microphones are getting smaller and smaller. The latest is about the size of an overcoat button. Farm Bureau Opens Drive for Members Cresco—With a quota of 950 members in 1949-50, the Howard County Farm Bureau has begun its membership drive. G.
