(By B. P. Campbell)
"You'll find all there is to tell
there," said Mr. Edward C. Pardon,
superintendent of the buildings and
grounds department, throwing a re-
port of his department on the desk.
"While this was given out a few years
ago, there have been no essential
changes, the rest of the story being
that of developing the plans suggest-
ed therein," he continued.
This report contained the story of
the growth of an pparently unsuc-
cessful business department of the
University into a great financial as-
set.
Originally the department of build-
ings and grounds was little more than'
a few scattered departments main-
tained by the University to do odd
jobs. And it did not do them well.
There was no co-operation, no effi-
ciency. The workmen had nothing to,
stimulate them to do their best.
The system of cost accounting was,
so poor that no one knew where the,
department stood with regard to costsi
on any job. No one was responsible
directly for what was, or was not

to change all this. They spent some
money on the department, equipped it,
centralized it as much as possible, re-
organized, and asked for results.
They obtained them.
This department now does work for
the University which runs, on a cost
basis, into hundreds of thousands of
dollars yearly. The work falls into
three general classes: maintenance of
present property, new construction
and improvements, and engineering
and architecture.
Ten sub-departments are maintain-
ed: carpentry, painting, electrical,
steamfitting and plumbing, grounds,
janitor and police, power plants, ma-
sonry, fire inspection, and laundry.
Each has a manager directly respon-
sible to Mr. Pardon.
Furniture is manufactured in a com-
pletely equipped, modern wood-work-
ing shop, the lumber being dried in the
department's own dry-kiln.
More than 200 men are employed
continually. Working conditions' are
made favorable for them, and incen-
tive to do their best is offered. The;
present cost system is such that costs
of material and labor are maintained
to within 24 hours on every job. The
department has vindicated the Univer-
sity's belief in its possibilities.

'RESIGNING INSTRUCTOR
RECLSFORMERDHYS~
MISS AL1E HUNT, OF Dl{AWI nG
DEPART'JiENT, PLANS RE-
TURN TO HOME
Miss Alice L. Hunt, instructor in
drawing in the engineering depart-
ment of the University, recently ten-
dered her resignation to the Board of
Regents.
. Miss Hunt has the distinction of hav-
ing been with the University longer
than any of the faculty, Prof. I. N.
Demmon of the English department ex-
cepted. After the completion of her
term of service with the University,
she will return to her home in Clin-
ton, Massachusetts.
Tells of Drawing Department
In speaking of former days, Miss
Hunt said, "The department of draw-
ing, at the time when I first taught in
the University, was located in the
south wing of University hall. Lat-
er, it was transferred to the rooms on
the third floor of the main building,
in the rear of the auditorium.
Its location there was of short dura-
tion, for within a year it was install-
ed in its present location, the third
,floor of what is now called the old en-
gineering building, the nucleus of
'which was one of the faculty hoyes.
Dentists Shift Often
"The old engineering building was,
.)ETIROIT OPERA. HOUSE-ON-THE-
CAMPUS
Theatrical records go to show that
"Twin Beds," booked for the Detroit
Opera House-on-the-Campus this
week, is one of the emphatic standing
comedy successes.
The story is built arouid the diffi-
culties of three. married couples liv-
ing in a fashionable apartment house,
with the usual amusing list of neigh-
bors. Lois Bolton again has the lead-
Ing role, and is supported by an ex-
ceptional company of comedians.

at :first, the home of the dental de-
partmnent. Later, this department mov-
ed to the frame structure directly
north of the new engineering building.
After the dentists had vacated this
structure, it served for a time as a
medical laboratory. It has been used
since by the engineering department.
"B~efore the gymnasium was built,
waste matter from the medical de-
partment used to be burned upon the
northeast corner of the campus, a
process quite annoying to nearby res-
idents.
Sophs of Old 4Given Amusement
"This campus was once encircled
with a double driveway, entirely er-
closed with a picket fence. Throwing
freshmen over this fence was a fav-
orite sophomore diversion.
"Winters were not as mild in for--
mer days as they now are. There was
one winter in particular when an i-
crust formed so thickly upon the top
of the snow that it was possible to
skate to Ypsilanti. Students made use
of the gulley behind the Homoeopathic
hospital, constructing a toboggan
slide there."
Fornter Sala'es Ade iuate
Miss Hunt declared that she consid-
ered faculty salaries more adequate
in the old days than they are now.
In the very early history of the Uni-
versity, instructors received $900 up-
on being engaged, usually receiving
raises of $100 with each succeeding
year of service until a iiaxinum sal-
ary of $1,400 was reached.
U). U. R. Reduces Rates Monday
Reduction to pre-war basis of the
fares on the elect~ric line between
Detroit and Ann Arbor takes place
Monday. The rate from the city lim-
its of Detroit to Ann Arbor will be

You will find

Anita Stewart miakes a stunning
chamber-maid in "A Midnight Ro-
mance," her latest production, which
is being shown for the last time Tues-
day at the Majestic. However, her
limits are not reached in this role, for
she is equally convincing and attrac-
tive as the Princess Marie in the lat-
ter half of the picture.
The purpose Of the picture is solely
to entertain, and in this it succeeds
to a considerable extent. A vein of
mystery and romance runs thr oug"
the story, and keeps the hero as well
as the audience in a state of specula-
tion for some time. Miss Stewart, by
the way, has one of the best leading
men she has ever had in Jack Holt.
A Sennett comedy, "Cupid's Day
Off," is the added attraction.
AT THE ARCA)E
"The Bluffer," starring June Elvidge,
is the attraction for Tuesday only at
the Arcade theater. Miss Elvidge
plays the part of Sybil. She is the
victim of bad advice given by the
enemy of her father, who hopes, by
getting her into trouble, to avenge
the wrong done him by her father.
After she has fallen into the snare,
the young man spoils his plans by
falling in love with her. After marry-
ing each other for money, the two find
that neither has any, and they are
compelled to bluff their way through
life together.
Bert Lytell; of "The Spender" fame,
will be seen tomorrow in "Faith."
SHUBERT-GARRICK, DETROIT
"Oh Boy," the fourth of the New
York Princess theater musical comedy
successes, which is playing at the
Shubert-Garrick all week, is said to
be the best of these productions, which
have included "Nobody Home," and
"Very Good Eddie."
Among the song hits are "A Pal
Like You," "An Old-Fashioned Wife,"
and "'Till the Clouds Roll By." The
original company headed by Miss
Anna Wheaton is appearing In De-
troit.
'Sir Jamnes M. Barrie does his best
work in his kitchen. He has fitted up
this room to resemble the kitchen of
his childhood as nearly as possible.
.Charles Ray was in musical comedy
previous to his motign picture career.
