Leaders hone that most of the donations will be sent in by mall In order to eliminate as much personal solicitation a.s possible, it was pointed out. Letters I/) individuals asking for Iheir conlrlbutions will be mailed to niythevlllo residents before the opc'ning date ol the campaign in order for them to send in their donations early and shorten the campaign. Last year nearly two-thirds of the money raised came via mall, and It Is hoped that the number of mail contributions- will be even greater this year, as the lack of S Steel 56 1-4 transportation and time makes it difficult to conlnct .each individual.
