ALLEN ST.'LOUIS (AP) — After a year of tooling up, America's private colleges are putting into motion a money-raising machine geared to the principle that private enterprise has a responsibility to keep them alive.

Led Campaign Five years ago, .in the face of talk that private colleges needed federal aid, Sparks led a campaign .within the AAC that resulted • in the establishment of state associations of colleges which solicited fuuds on behalf of all their members. ' The state associations, of which there are nov 34, were so successful that AAC members called for a national program. Committee will be a "national depository" in which donors may place contributions to be disbursed by the committee according to their specifications. Can Still Give "In our preliminary calls last year," Hastings said, "we frequently ran into people who said, 'I'll write you a check right now.' Then it dawned on us there was no one for -them to write a check to. This will take care of that." Corporations can still give to individual colleges, and member colleges are still free to solicit on their own. The committee's technique is to send teams of three college presidents to call on top executives of corporations and make a pitch on behalf of all colleges. Last year ~" teams solicited 117 corporations tight cities. : As a result, $142,200 was earmarked by six corporations for the national depository, and Hastings said other donations were,, made directly to colleges and to state associations:. An additional 140 corporations are on the list for calls this year. [MANILA NEW< By Mrs. Bill Lawhorn Visitors home for the holidays have been the inspiration for several parties. Mrs. Hattie M.
