Y Drive Chief Appoints 5 To Key Spots MONMOUTH - James Pere goy, general chairman of the 1963 Warren County YMCA fund drive, announced Tuesday five chairmen Vfho will hold key spots on the drive. RSchard Hildreth will head the business division; Ralph Whiteman, sustaining division; Clifford Colquitt, contributing scholar ship; David Hickok and James Talley, supporting. The county-wide campaign will begin Sept. 29 and run through Oct. 5. The drive goal of $30,000 will enable the YMCA to erase its current deficit of $6,000 and operate through December 1964. Plan 5 Categories Following a system initiated last year, the drive will be or­ ganised into five donor categories geared to specific Y activities and needs. Sustaining memberships from donations of $100 or more will be used to support building maintenance, staff salaries, utility charges and general operation expenses. The next two categories, scholarship and contributing scholarship memberships, will be earmarked to purchase YMCA memberships for worthy boys and girls who otherwise could not afford to join. A gift of $30 and up will purchase a full membership; gifts of $15 to $30 will each provide a half-membership for some young person. Supporting memberships of $5 or more will support Y program activities and help make up the deficit between the cost of the Y program and the charges it levied to the youngsters. The memberships are not actual participating memberships for the donors. Peregoy pointed out, because of income tax law restrictions. Go Into Action Today Chairman Hildreth reported that the business division of the drive will swing into action today. Team captains for the division are Ted Stansell and Del Ohren. Business outside Monmouth will be solicited by Robert Armstrong in Little York and Thatcher Haynes in Alexis and Fred Bear in Kirkwood. Two new features of the drive this year will be a recognition plaque for those providing sustaining scholarships and a system of dividing pledges into installment payments. The mahogany plaque will be displayed at various places in Monmouth and bear the names of all sustaining members. Purpose of the plaque, Peregoy said, "is to provide some recognition for those who support the YMCA — and to make more people aware of our dependence on community support."
