The engineering shops of the uni-
versity have been exceedingly busy
during the past summer and fall mak-
ing improvements in equipment and
apparatus. Besides installing some
new molding machines in the foundry,
a new hydraulic televator connecting
the yard with the force and machine
shop floors, and designed for getting
work in and out the building, has been
installed by the instructors and work-
men of the department. This new
elevator is operated by a singularly
unique method. For, together with
the elevator used for lifting iron and
fuel to the cupola furnace in the
foundry, it is operated by a combined
hydraulic and pneumatic system, a
combination unique in its application.
Connected with this elevator is a
duplex pump, also designed and made
in the engineering shops, which is
operated by compress of air, furnished
by a compression apparatus likewise
prepared by the ishops. The duplex
pump takes water from a cistern,.
operates two elevators, either sepa-
rately or both together, and discharges
the water back into the cistern. Here-
tofore the hydraulic elevators about
the university have been operated by
city water pressure, but this pres-
sure was never sufficient to lift the
weights required by two such eleva-
tors. The pneumatically operated'
pump gives a water pressure of ap-
prioximately 100 pounds per square
inch and enables each elevator to lift'
a "load of two tons without difficulty.
An outfit of three molding machines
of different types has also been stalled'
in the foundry during the summer.'
These three machines, it is asserted,
illustrate all the important mechan-
ical principles used in molding ma-
chinery. One machine is operated en-
tirely by com~pressed air, the other
two by hand, with pneumatically op-;
ersted pattern devices accompanying.
An electrically driven and sifting
machine is among other additions to
the foundry. All these machines are
intended to illustrate modern methodst
in foundry practice and bring the uni-
versity abreast with the times, so to1
speak, in mechaniealaffairs. Not only
are they used for instruction pur-l

Drowsy Studes Have Slept in Old T.
Hell Ever Since it Was
Sleeping in class-rooms is one of
the never failing traditional customs
of campus life, but -few of us know
how ancient and sacred in its an-
tiquity is this prevailing evil in old
Ann Arbor town. Tell any freshmen
who have classes in either of the
"wings" that they are going to school
in an old dormitory and see how blank
they look. Nine-tenths of the seniors
will appear just as void of comprehen-
sion. Nevertheless such is the fact:
the wings are old dormitories.
Blissful must have been t'he days

"The onion. Law."
"The Common Law," a dramatiza-
tion of Robert W. Chambers' sensa-
tional novel, is booked as one of the
special attractions at the Whitney
theater on Tuesday, November 26,
and fiction readers who have been
charmed and fascinated by Mr. Cham-
bers' remarkable book, will doubtless
look forward to witnessing the play
with pleasureable interest.
"The Only Son."
People who ordinarily attend a com-
edy drama do not expect to find a
wealth of elaborateness but they find
it just the same in "The Only Son"
which will come to the Whitney thea-
ter next Wednesday evening. There
is no make believe in this latest play

Fortune Hunter," and "Brewster's Mil-

There is one other machine newly

for a long time, we are told, but has

Seats will be placed on sale Tues-
day, November 26, for the forthcoming
engagement of "The Prince of Pilsen"
at the Whitney theater, Thanksgiving
afternoon and night.
For the revival of "The Prince of
Pilsen," Mr. Savage has assembled a
cast of unusual ability, including Jess
Dandy, Lottie Kendall, Edna Wallack,
Norma Browne, Arthur Hull, Fred
Lyon, Bobby Woolsey, Mary C. Mur-
rar, Dorothy Delmore, John O'Hanlon,
and a number of other well known
duty that the honored president emer-
itus performed in office.
With few exceptions the hall and
wings remain the same today as at
that time. Originally the space on the
first floor now occupied by the dean's,
the registrar's, and the graduate de-
partment's offices was given up to the
college chapel. There services and
exercises were held seven days in the
week and attendance was compulsory
for all students.
Many of the original class rooms
throughout the building have been
cut into smaller ones for more practi-
cal use, The auditori u with the ex-
ception of fire escapes, seats and deco-
rationsf remains practically the same
today as when it was dedicated.
Several years ago the old French
dome which originally surmounted the
central portion of the structure was
condemned as unsafe and torn down.
It was replaced by the present one
which is much more in keeping with

The plans for the uniting of the two
wings by University hall proper were
drawn by Edward S. Jonson, '68 E,
who was then residing in Chicago.
University hall is a noble rather
than a beautiful structure architec-
turally. Its associations make it a
beautiful building historically. Mich-
igan men and women have worshiped,
and Michigan men and women will
ever worship old University hall as
Michigan's educational capitol.

men also Ideated on the campus. North
Wing originally contained a chapel on
the first floor and class rooms and a
museum on that and the second. The
upper two floors were used for dor-
mitory purposes. Evidently the dor-
mitory system had its drawbacks and
hardships-for the professors. It
isn't hard to imagine the fun that went
on up in the higher altitudes of the
old wings and the false alarms that
brought the responsible faculty mem-
bers tq the scenes of supposed riots.
It must have been true that in the
wings "life was worth living," for
in 1857 President Tappan abandoned
the dormitory system in order to "re-
lieve the treasury of a large expendi-
ture of money and the faculty of a
great deal of care and annoyance in
the way of supervision.''
South Wing was built soon after
North Wing and cost slightly less, al-
though practically a duplicate of the
latter. It was also used partially as
a dormitory.
On commencement day, June 28,
1871, the corner stone of University
