Many questions were asked in the discussion. Some doubt was expressed as
to the timeliness of the campaign this fall. Practically all were agreed that it
would be feasible and desirable to have t he s tudent and faculty solici tation at
about Homecoming time, 5.
When asked with regard to the cost of a campaign of this sort, Mr. Pierce
stated that it would be approximat ely $60,000 of which the firm's charge would be
$12,500. .
No definite action was taken, but it was understood that Mr. Wallace would ar-
range to have Pierce meet ot her memb ers of the committee who were unable to be
present a t this meeting and that later a larger conference would be called to take
definite action.
