ABC Sale - December 4 - (Carl Aiken) On December 4, 1957, the Ornithology Group held an A B C sale for the purpose of acquiring funds enough to pay for the recently purchased Balscope, Everyone cooperated to the fullest extent and made this effort one of the greatest successes the group has ever experienced. A few brought cakes, pies, or coffee, while others brought plants, records, books, or anything else that might appeal to a prospective buyer, of whieh there were many. A wonderful movie on the Bahama Islands was the highlight of the Intermission, but as soon as it was over the buying startatd just as vigorously as before. Counting total sales we made approxomently -4156, and, although rent and several other minor bills must be paid, we-afijjf have enough to pay for the Balseope, buy another eyepietse, and secure ajp?ipod. I, along with the Balscope Committee, wpuld<like to take this opportunity to thank each and every individual who contributed to this cause. Without the help of everyone it could not ha%s been the success that It was. Thank you very much.
