of memorial honor to be made. The
first day, Monday, was Patriot's Pledge
of Faith day. Tuesday was Universal
Education day, honoring the free edu-
cation system which Thomas Jeffer-
son helped establish.
Today is Founders' day, on which,
particular honor will be given all
over the country to the nation's

tend over to Washington avenue.
Slides of the building were shown, and
Mrs. Henderson explained the plan of
construction. Among the projects
which will be carried out are plans for
a swimming pool, a theater, tea-room,
several dining-rooms, beauty parlor an
assembly room which will accom-
modate between six and seven hun-
dred, offices for the different asso-
ciations, clubs, and dramatic organi-
zations, and 21 sleeping accommoda-
tions. A novel feature of the building
is a, room which will be dedicated to
the Alumnae.
Time 14 Short
Mrs. Henderson stressed the fact
that the time remaining in which to
realize the promise to the board of
Regents, which consists of raising
$1,000,000, by June, 1927, is compara-
tively short, and that it is necessary
to put forth the best efforts in order
to succeed in the project.
Miss Richards, assistant dean of
women, clearly stressed the need felt
by the women of the University of
having a building of their own. Be-
tween gymnasium classes, directors'
meetings, the Dean's office, a tea shop,
health lectures, rehearsals for the
sophomore circus and the Junior
girls' play, Barbour gymnasium is all
too small. A new building would
easily take care of all these activities,
and allow for more work in the de-
partment of physical education.
Mrs. Shirley Smith, National chair-
man of the Alumnae council, reviewed
the history of the original plan. In
1920 Marguerite Chapin went to the
league with $1,000 as the beginning of
a building exclusively for the women
of the University. The league took
up this project until $180,000 was rais-
ed, at which time President Burton
reorganized the plans. Dean Jean
Hamilton was made president of the
league and the committee raised the
sum to one half million dollars. Mrs.
Henderson was placed in charge
March 1, 1926, as executive secretary.
Regent Beal Talks
Gratitude to these pioneers was
brought out by Regent Junius E.
Beal. He told how the board of Re-
gents had set aside this most valuable
plot of ground for such a building, in
opposition to the requests of every
college of the University who wished
to use the land for new buildings ap-
plying to their work. Mr. Beal said
that he realized that the women of the
University need such a building :just
as the men needed the Union. It is a
place to meet friends, to become ac-
quainted, and where returning alum-
nae can stay. Mr. Beal continued by
saying that he had seen three such
campaigns take place among the wom-
en namely, the acquisition of a gymna-3
sium, Palmer Field, and now the pres-
ent campaign to raise funds for a
Women's league building.
This is te first time that the sum-
mer school students have been asked
to aid by their services,

centrated upon the physical examina-

the teaching of health habits.
Today there is an awakening on the
part of every nation to the Importance
of teaching health practices in the
schools. Belgium and Panama are
the most actively engaged in revising
their programs of health education.
"All other nations are looking
eagerly to the United States for guild-
ante in this new field. They have
great admiration for our efficiency in
what they believe we are doing," said
Miss Jean, "and we must try to live
up to that standard."
Genhart To Take

to give suggestions in regard to
