In cooperation with Mr. Phil Myers, we have been working together in the interests of our non-Aryan refugee student, Mr. Thomas Doppner.
We are wondering what his course of action should or will be upon the close of school this spring. Could you give us any help? The committee in charge does not know what action to take concerning the matter of a new financial drive for either the return of Mr. Doppner or another refugee student. However, it is significant that our college does not offer the course that Mr. Doppner desires in continuing his college career next year. Is he allowed to work in businesses, etc.? We would appreciate an early reply.

Elizabeth Mohler from McPherson college is writing to the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) to find out if Opa is still interested in being around for another year despite the fact that the school does not have his preferred course of study.
Also, I realize she wondered if he could work in a business, I think she is also trying to see if he can be supported or support himself otherwise so that McPherson can support another student. It actually makes a little more sense to me now.
