One is that a "bird in the hand is worth two in the busy" and we want to be sure that our own dear people who are going to make the sacrifice to give anyhow, will appear with "those present" on this occasion; the other is that it has a better psychological effect on the worker, to have something in hand when approaching the uncertain prospects. The next list to approach is that of members who have ever contributed those members who have shown exceptional interest during the season just past and those who have attended pay entertainments. Another group that has possibilities is that of people who were awfully interested three or four years ago and have dropped away long enough ago to be ready to come back.
