STAIRWAY, SW IIING POOL AND
READING ROOM ALONE
Only three parts of the new Union
building, the main stairway, the swim-
ming pool; and the reading room will
be incomplete by thebeginning of the
second semester, according to Union
officials. Lack of funds delays the
completion of the swimming- pool and
the reading room, but it is expected
that gifts from prominent alumni will
make possible the flnishing of these
parts in a short time.
Failure of material to arrive has
been the cause of the stairway delay,
but work will be started on this as
soon as it comes. After the arrival of
the material, it will take some time to
finish the job, as the construction of
the stairway is a difficult task.
Diing Room Nearly Ready
The }ain dining room is the only
room in which the permanent lights
have been placed, but more are coming
in continually. With the exception of
some of the furniture, the main din-
ing room is ready for use.
The Union concourse will be the
latest section to be given over for
use, as 6fficials are expecting this to
be ready by Saturday. Part of the
wainscoting and the furniture has
not yet arrived, but the concourse will
Homer Heath, general manager, has
moved into his newly finished offices
in the south corridor, and the main
desk with its cigar humidor has keen

part of the work on the check rooms
has been done.f
Clocks to Be Installed
Every effort is being made by Union
officials to have the work on the build-
ing done by the second semester, with
the exception of the stairway, swim-
ming pools, and reading room. By
this time it is expected that all the
furniture and rugs will be here, and
most of the lights hung up.
Electricians Ore wiring the build-
ing, preparatory to the installation of
numerous clocks, which will be run
from a master clock 'in the general
manager's office. This, master clock
