The y ar 12.0-121. seemingly com-

of rea! hievemnts in the history of
Michiga as we review its occurrences.
Althoug almost overwhelmed with a
constant increasmig enrollment
whose needs conid be so inadequately
supplied by the mans at hand, the
University has at the end of this criti-
cal period shown itself fully capable'
of solving its problems and is'ready
to pass on to greater accomplishments.
The Walls Bulged
Enrollment at the beginning of the
year gave some indication of the great
expansion through which the Univer-
sity was about to vass. Reaching the
unprecedented total of 10,623 students
in all schools and colleges, the enroll-
ment showed that Michigan must grow
to meet new demands.

Michigan athletics in the come-

average level than in 1919-1920

1921 Class Roll
(By R. ]. Adams, Jr.)
"In the Limelight," interested in
campus activities, and filling positions
of importance are many men who will
graduate with the class of 1921 this
month. These men have successfully
pilotpd Michigan -traditions and or-
ganizations throughout the year and
are now about to pass their duties on
to the class of '1922.
To Elton E. Wieman probably goes
the distinction of being the premier
leader of the class as was testified by
his being unanimously awarded the
Conference medal. "Tad" had worked
day in and day out on the gridiron and
in appreciation of his services he was,
made captain-elect in 1918. Enlist-
ment in the service made it impossi-
ble for him to act as captain during
that season. Making Phi Beta Kappa*
tended only to ;emphasize the ,all-
around ability of "Tad."
Paul Eaton, as president of the Un-
ion, has achieved for himself a place
in the hall of fame due to the excel-
lence of his work -and his ability to
understand the varying points of view
held by the campus factions.
He Was Busy
LeGrand A. Gaines at 'the beginning
of the year undertook to shoulder two
positions each of which was a man-
sized job. "Tex" was appointed busi-
ness manager of The Daily and was
elected president of the Student coun-
cil. Under the strain of these respon-
sibilities he surrounded himself with

Want One

.I illion




(By Sarah Waller)


Tomorrow marks the opening of the
campaign for $1,000,000 to build a large
well-equipped club house for the wom-
en of Michigan. All Michigan, both
student and alumnoe, will be asked to
take out life memberships in the
league, and to work shoulder to shoul-
der in raising the fund for the much-
needed building.
When the first $500,000 is raised,
the Board of Regents will donate a
building site. There is need, there-
fore, that the campaign be carried for-
ward quickly in order that an advant-
ageous position may be secured and
so it is to raise the original $500,000
building fund as soon as possible that
the present drive is being made.
Offer Life Memberships
Life membership' in the Women's
league, affording the holder all privi-
leges and advantages of the future
building, costs $50, $10 of this sum
being payable in cash at the present'
time and the remainder in four -n-
nual 'payments. A life member of the
league is entitled to the 'pin, which
has not been designed as yet, the lit-
erature, and the use o& the new club
house at all times.
Unanimous Support Needed
Financial support from all alumnae
and student women of Michigan is re-
quisite before aid can* be asked from

other people. Student backing is nec-
essary to convince the alumnae that
the women of the campus are really
eager for the new building, -In the
words of the executive committee of
the Alumnae council, "We realize that
the girls who take out life member-
ships now will not be here to enjoy the
building as students. Still we feel-
that this very condition makes the tak-
ing out of, such a membership a test
of loyalty to Michigan. Every 'Michi-
gan woman should feel privileged to
be among the first to subscribe to the
Cities Are Organized
The alumnae council co-operates
with the league in carrying on the
campaign and works through 24 or-
ganized centers, located in large cities
in which there are a number of Michi-
gan alumnae. Detroit, Chicago, Phil-
adelphia, and New York all have or-
ganized chapters.. The first life mem-
bership subscription sent in came from
an alumna living in California.
,Of the $1,000,000 total whichmust be
raised before the actual construction
may be begun, only $750,000 will be
used for the erection and equipment
of the building. The remainder will
be used as a'sinking fund, the interest
from which will go toward paying the
running expenses of the club house.
