Originally known as Children's or College Day, contributions will be received on that day for the Student 'Loan Fund, providing loans for those students who otherwise might not be able to secure a college education. In the 70 years since Its _ inception, the Student Loan Fund has provided more than $9,500,000 to over 55.000 students. Approximately £.000 loans agregating $325,00 are now loaned annually to students matriculating in 181 Methodist and accredited non-Methodist schools of learning from :oast to coast. In announcing the date, Dr. Mc- 3 her.son asked for fullest cooperation of the '3,000.033 Methodists in tiie nation to make the 1942 contribution to the fund one of the largest in its history. "Never before has education with the Christian emphasis been more needed," he said. "A war-torn secular world menaces all that Christian idealism and democracy mean. We must keep the high standards that have always characterized our institutions of learning and make it possible for our young people to continue their education in those schools." missed. . are , .
