An imposing addition to the campus
religious institutions is proposed by
the Michigan Bible Chair, which will
erect a two-story brick building early
next spring on the site of their present
home at South State street and Jeffer-
This structure, which will cost about
$75,000, will have a 90 foot frontage on
State street and will extend back 54
feet on Jefferson. It Is planned to,
make the :interior homelike and com-
fortable, while providing ample room
for the various activities of the society.-
The basement will be taken up with
class rooms and rooms for entertain-
ments. The first floor will contain a
large reading room and several offices.
The entire second floor will be given
over to the Upper Room Bible class
room, an auditorium with a seating
capacity of between 600 and 700. This
will be so arranged that it may be di-
vided into smaller apartments for the
use of study or discussion groups.
Wart Interrupts Work
Need for larger quarters has been
felt for a long time, and, had it not
been for the war, the building would
have been erected some time ago. Plans
are now in the hands of Mr. T. M. Iden,
who is in charge of the work here.
The building expenses will be defrayed
by the Christian Women's Board of
Missions and the Upper class alumni.
