London, June 29---"Jack" Phillips, the plucky wireless operator who stuck to his post on the Titanic and sent out the call for help that brought rescue to more than seven hundred souls, is to have a memorial erected in Godalming, his native town, and a movement to raise funds therefor is already under way.

The mayor of the town, E. Bridger, has issued an appeal for money to his fellow townsmen, and he is hopeful of a generous response, not only from them but from many of those whose lives were saved by the operator's devotion to duty. Subscriptions of money are invited from survivors on both sides of the water, and may be sent to the town clerk of Godalming, Surrey, England.
