Martha Cook dormitory, completed in 1905 and
:commodating i z8 women, is conceded by archi-
cts to be the most substantial institution of its
nd, a m'odel residence hall. Other more modern
aildings of this character have been erected at
assar and Chicago, but none has been able to
)mpare with this residence hall as a durable piece
architecture whose beauty is permanent.
RAISING STADIUM FUNDS
When the Board in Control of Athletics at its
eeting last Saturday night went on record as fav-
ing the consideration of plans for the erection of
,W stands at Ferry field, and of completing tlie
Z stadium, it struck a note which has been
eadily sounded in the expressed opinons of
:ichigan men -and women, undergraduates and
44mni. The need of larger stands, the feasibility
undertaking such a proposition, have been sub-
Cts of discussion too long to need further eluci-
One fact, however, we must keep in mind - that
yet the matter of completion is nothing but a
n, since the Athletic board has taken no decided.
tion on the matter. But it is to the interest of
e student body that, when. the board does open
e &campaign for this project, it become an active,
>rking reality. Various ideas have been sug-
sted by means of which the necessary funds may
raised. It might be interesting to note here how
ir universities have gone about it.
In Columbus, where Ohio State university is lo-
te4d, a campaign is being waged to obtain one
illion dollars to erect a new stadium which will
at 63,000 people when completed. At latest ac-
uirt they had received $9oo,ooo,and were well
the way to secure the final' tenth. Alumni, Co-
nbus townspeople, and students have all com-
ed to help put this drive across, by entertain-
nts, public subscriptions, and personal solicita-
n., The land for the stadium was a grant from
state to the university.
Washington university, at Seattle, now has a sta-
im whieh is touted as the "best and most modern
ucture west of the Mississippi." The students
the western university were in earnest about
s campaign, and not satisfied with securing $2o,-
o 'from alumni and business people by selling
ts for athletic contests at the new field, turned
$ioo,ooo of their own money toward the fund.
)thers have done it, and certainly the student
ly of Michigan will work with all their might
make the proposed plan, if it is sanctioned, as
'cessful as all other achievements which Michi-

those who are not at present members of the,
;ion, it extends the opportunity of joining and
ling into contact with other service men, whose
interests are theirs, for the purpose of taking an
active part in directing the patriotic affairs of
America. To those who are already connected
with that organization, it holds out a method by
which they can keep in touch with the doings of the
Legion while away from their home posts.
The American Legion is an organization of men
who by coloperation have been successful in time
of war, and who by the continued application of
that co-operation cannot fail to be an even greater
influence in times of peace. Active membership
in the American Legion is a privilege which should"
immediately be taken advantage of by'those who
are qualified for this hqnor.
PAY UP TOMORROW
Every year, when the time comes around for the
payment of dues by the members of the senior
class, a large percentage of the prospective gradu-
ates find. themselves confronted with' bills for all
their class dues which have accrued during their
four years of college.
In order to avoid the carrying over by the stu-
dents of all payments until the last month of_ the
last year, a "class dues day"' has been inaugurated,
and tomorrow opportunity will be given all stu-
dents from the rank of freshman to that of senior
to pay up and get the matter off their hands. The
dues for each year are not heavy and should work
no hardship on anyone.
It is only fair to one's class to keep the pay-
ments owed to it up to date. That class cannot' do
anything without funds and has too often been pre-
vented from carrying on activities merely because
its members have not gone down in their pockets
for the small amount asked at the time when it was
requested. It all has to be paid anyhow before we
graduate, so why not pay up now while the money
can be of some immediate use?
TEAMWORK IN THE POOL CAMPAIGN
Sectional organizations are already getting to-
gether to unify and strengthen their efforts at mak-
ing the vacation campaign for the Union pool a
success. Though less than a week: remains, there
is excellent opportunity to get every man from-a
given district thoroughly interested by means of
meetings, and definitely assign the alumni of the
section to various students for systematic canvass-
ing. It is essential that every former Michigan
man be given an opportunity to contribute. and that
he be told convincingly the reasons why he is ex-
pected to do so; and organization alone will effect
The general manager of the Union has complete
lists of alumni which he will be glad to furnish the
district organizations, along with financial ratings
and all other useful information. By careful as-
signment of names to individuals, overlapping lists
and consequent loss of time can be entirely avoided.
Must we go at this campaign haphazard, or have
Michigan men the initiative and loyalty to instill
into it the vitality of system?

With but two more days in which to decide the
fateful issue, the campus has.been aroused to a
veritable frenzy by the nerve-wracking closeness of
the Contest. Close observers of the situation would
vouchsafe no surmises as to the final outcome other
than to state that the side with the greatest reserve'
power would win. In the meantime the student,
body waits with bated breath for the decision which
will settle for all time the question as to which sex
is the wittier.

Is it true that the inmates of the Flint deaf and

Yes, we understand on' very good authority that
the officials at the asylum had to adopt this pro-
cedure in order to prevent the inmates from talk-
ing too much in their sleep.
A "Scornful Co-ed" Writes In to Says
Now this is the song of the co-ed,
But only the twentieth part;
For the rest and the' best of her wisdom
She hides deep down in her heart!
Well, anyway, we're mighty glad to know they're
hiding something from us.
Dean-I may as well tell you frankly at the out-
set that I'll have to set my foot down- on any pro-
posal to let you go home early for the Christmas

has been entirely covered.
