just as much here as at Huston's. What am I
paying that five dollars a year for?" - or, on leav-
ing the taproom, "I paid as much for that sundae
as I would down town. What's the idea?"
This type of comment became too common last
year, and has at times been noticed this semester.
If the Union charged in the manner which its en-'
vironment and service justifies, members would be
digging a good deal farther into their jeans than
Last year the Union made us a present of around
three thousand dollars besides paying $25,000 to
student employes in wages. But the dribble of
funds must be met by somev regular offset, or in
time special assessments will be in order to pay off
Endowment funds for this purpose are a neces-
sity: The best method-for raising them is provided
throngh the life membership payments. At pres-
ent all such payments are turned directly into the
building fund; and once that has been filled, every
life member secured will be providing for future
maintenance. This means not only that the an-
nual drives for life members must continue to bring
nearly all Michigan men into a life bond with the
Union; it means that every .one of us who is al-
ready a life member must see to it that that annual
installment check is mailed the day it is due.
We are the Union; when we have come to real-
ize the problems of our great organization as well
as the advantages we can get out of it, then those
problems will have been solved.
THE UNIVERSITY LEGION POST
The charter for a University post of the Amer-
ican Legion is expected to arrive at Ann Arbor
within the next. few days. The purpose of the es-
tablishment of such a post at Michigan is to enable
service men to remain active in the Legion through-
out their college years, and to bring together men
of equal education and a common outlook upon
life, so that an effective organization may result.
Every service man in the University, regardless of,
whether or not he has already signed up with his
home outfit, is expected to join this post. Transfer
from one branch to another is a simple matter, and
when service men leave Michigan they can be eas-
ily switched to the American Legion post of the
locality in which they reside.
Judging by the number of sharpshooter medals
which shone in the Armistice day parade, there's
going to be a big dearth of turkeys in Ann Arbor
after that Rifle club shoot Thanksgiving morning.
The wearing of the toque is a Michigan custom,
adhered to by seniors, juniors, and sophomores as
well as freshmen. Let's show our colors.
Evidently news of the general decline in food
commodities has not as yet reached Ann Arbor

More than nine thousand patients from all over
the state are treated each year in th University
hospital which is to be moved into a new three mil-
lion dollar building as soon as construction work is
completed. The new building will be one of the
finest structures of its kind in the country and will
accommodate six hundred patients when put into
THE PROBLEMS OF THE UNION
"If the Michigan Union were a men's club lo-
cated in Detroit or any other -large city, member-
ship dues for it would be around a hundred dol-
Not only the manager of the Union, but every
man who has had experienec of such organiza-
tions elsewhere and realizes the unique privileges
which are ours through our great men's club, will
subscribe to that statement. We have a meeting-
place, to begin with, which in beauty of design and
arrangements for comfort is hardly to be excelled
anywhere, and is 'not as yet equal at any other
We have a place where we can entertain and
house our relatives and our alumni friends when
they visit us at Michigan, and do it in a style on
4 par ith the finest hotel facilities. Previously
private rooms, an such hotel accommodations as
Ann Arbor affords, were our only resource.
We possess an organization whose watchword is
service along many lines - excellent eating fa-
cilities both in the main dining room and the tap-
room; billiards, bowling, dancing, musical activi-
ties, the Opera, spotlight, minstrel show, free wire
reports of games and elections, even a barber
shop. Within a short time one of the best college
swiming pools in the country is to be added to the
The Union does its best to make all these activi-
ties self-supporting, calling upon the regular annual
(not life membership) dues to help out. That this
aim is a practical impossibility is easily seen from
the fact that many of the activities mentioned are
necessarily gratuitous, while others have shown a
deficit in the financial statement just issued. These
have to be maintained out of the profits from the
paying departments. In addition, there is a gen-
eral adminstrative expense item which for last year
totaled $49,567.16, and which ate up all the rest of
the credit balances plus all the annual membership
fes, and still left the Union some $3,000 to the bad.
This general expense item included all the costs of
the operating department - hire of porters and
doormen, salaries of officials, house supplies, phone,
taxes, interest, and other smaller items.
With these facts set squarely before him, it is
difficult to conceive how any member coud walk
out of the billiard rom, for instance, with an ex-
pression like this on his lips: "They charged me

of mid-semesters just when you're planning what
train to take home for Thanksgiving vacation.
A vigorous proponent of the Lovell School of
Poetic Expression has submitted the following:

Will he ne'er to I return?
Am him gone from I for'er?
Oh nay, it cannot was.

know that he was not referring to the Ingersolls.
