Better Accommodations and
Vulcans and Web and Flange, socie-
ties of the engineering department,
passed resolutions to the board of re-
gents on the gymnasium question yes-
terday. There are now five campus
societies which have expressed them-
selves similarly, the other three being
- Michigamua, Druids and Sphinx.
The resolutions of the engineering
societies are identical. The text of the
an club, measures follows:-

modations of the university gymnasi-
um have become wholly inadequate
for the use of the present large stu-
Ldent body, and that the condition of
the shower baths in the gymnasium is
extremely unsanitary, we most re-
spectfully petition you for increased
It is understood that several other

next two days and take similar actions.
REPRESENTATIVES OF COLLEGE
ORGANIZATIONS PERFECT PLANS
Michigan Union Shown to Have Cov-
ered Widest Field; Place Hoontz
on Executive Board
P. D. Koontz, '14-'17L, president of
the Michigan Union has returned from
Columbus, O., where a meeting of rep-
resentatives of the leading college
unions of the west was held. A per-
manent organization was effected to
be governed for the present by an ex-
ecutive board consisting of President
F. M. Hall, of the Wisconsin Union,
Oliver Gossard, of the Ohio State Un-
.ion and P. D. Koontz of the Michigan
Union. It was decided to have the
details of the meeting printed in pam-
phlet form and sent to every college
union in the country.
Ohio State, Oberlin, Wisconsin,
Case, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia,
Purdue, and Michigan were represent-
ed at the gathering.
In the discussions held, it was
brought out that the Michigan Union
enters into more activities and provid-
es more advantages for its members
than any other of the unions repre-
Next year's meeting will probably
be held at some college farther west,
thus making it more central for all
of the representatives.

best by those in charge to use the re-

work soon after the holidays. One stu-
