Wilmington Men Wilmington Men of Mal- vern arrived at St. Joseph's- in-the-Hills for their annual retreat on Friday, April 18, with 165 men. Several stand- bys were stricken with illness prior to the retreat and were unable to attend. Among these was our Associate Captain, Frank J. Horty. Jack Forrest had his usual group of 25 men from the Bancroft Company, and genial Judge Corsano had a group of 15 retreatants. The McLaughlins were pres- ent in large number since one father, Bill, had four sons and two brothers along to keep him company. . .9 t Number 10 . Campaign Fund . Grows As Gifts . . Arrive Daily More Than $126,000 In Hand As Pledges Are Met By Donors Reports from Paul P. Fink, Chairman of the Memorial Fund Committee, tell ' the story that the fund has now passed the $126,000.00 mark, in cash, and is still growing as payments are being made on the almost $8,000.00 in pledges. Chairman Pink is most en- thusiastic about the manner in which so many retreatants responded to his appeals, but points out ‘the fact that be- cause of the immense increase in the cost of building even the magnificent sum con- tributed may not be sufficient to ‘complete construction. Because of the ahnosi: daily changes in the type of mate- rial that are available for building, and the desire to get the best quality for the least expenditure of money, the Building Committee has been, delayed in receiving the com- pleted plans from the archi- tect so that they could be sub- mitted to the contractors for bids. However, it is still hoped that ground may be broken before the opening days of the summer season and that the new building may be in readi- ness for the first retreat of the new year. ‘ Meanwhile, Th o m a s G. Cairns, Chairman of the Building Committee, together with those"a.ssisting him, are doing all in their power to ex- pedite matters because condi- tions at the Retreat House call for an easing of the over- crowded conditions at the earliest possible moment.
