ams of a lbuilding devoted en-
to the interests of .women of
iiversity have been cherished for
by prominent Michigan alumnae,
t until June 1921 at the meeting
Alumnae council were definite
taken toward the end. It was
decided to start action toward
ring a building for women of the
rsity similar in purpose to the
building for men. Since then
alumnae and undergraduate wo-
have thrown themselves into the
f assuring such an edifice on the

number of special features were par-
ticularly successful in realizing a fair
return. "Masges," campus dramatic
society, presented a play "Why the
Chimes Rang" at this time.
Since then several other schemes
have resulted in the bringing in of
considerable money, particularly
among the organized houses where
bridge teas, special sales andenter-
tainments have" been. conducted by
practically every group.
ALUMNAE GROUPS ORCANIZE
TO WORK FOR NEW BUILDING

At the November meeting of the
>ard of Regents the, plan was ap-
oved and a site for the erection of
e Women's League Building was
anted to the Alumnae council, with
e provision that work on the build-
,, should commence within five years.
iortly after, Bond and Bond, of Chi-
,go, the architects who had designed
e Union building were selected to
aw the plhns for the new League
.ilding.
With this much accomplished to
rye as an incentive in the campaign,
e moving spirits were confronted
th the colossal task of putting the
oposition before the entire body' of
ichigan alumnae. Because of the
ct that the alumnae were not organ-
ed as a body it was necessary, pri-
arily, to form, alumnae groups
roughout the, country, as the cam-
igning for the building had to be
)e by other than the undergraduate
omen.
An office was opened in Alumni Me-
orial hall through the courtesy of
e alumni, and a secretary engaged
begin work on the campaign. The
Tice furniture and money for running
:penses and procured by a campaign
mmiittee; and several alumnae went
many of the larger cities and aided
organizing alumnae groups which
tve since contributed to the running
:penses. Announcements of the plans
r the building and information con-
rning the campaign were sent out
every Michigan alumnae whose ad-
'ess was known. It was believed that
whirlwind publicity campaign would
imulate a great deal of interest in
e work so the committee in charge
umediately adopted the plan.
This project, however, entailed the
xpenditure of a considerable amount
money and presented to the com-
itee a ponderous tasi. Membership
es and money given as gifts could
ot be used for this business, as it had
een decided that such funds had to
cspent for the actsal erection of the
ructure. As a solution of the prob-
n it was decided that an attempt
ould be made to secure funds by con-
acting various sales, presenting
.ays, and"other well-known:money
using features on the campus. in
is work the various women's organi-
itions, sororities, and organized
ouses gladly consented to help out.
A committee was appointed with
eva Lovewell '22 at its head to direct
is work. The sororities and girl's
>rmitories were asked to forego one
their regular da'nces and contrib-
e the sur usually expended to the
nd. Practically all three organiza-
ons complied with the idea and a
)nsiderable sum was raised. Then a
>oth was opened in University Hall
here various confectionaries and stu-
ent supplies were sold. A schedule
as made out for every hour of the
ny and girls were ths secured to be
iy and girls were thus secured to be
heme has been unusually successful.
Christmas brought the Bazaar for
e benefit of the League building, the
iccess of which was truly gratify-
g. Everywoman on the campusgave
me article to the bazaar and all or-
.nized houses contributed home-made
ndy. Inicorporated in the sales a

vue, Northville and Plymouth are

night for the last monthly meeting
of the year of the Adrian alumnae
organization in order to give the mem-
hers an account of the plans of the
University of Michigan League.

Complete financial reports for the
Michigan League campaign fund will
not be available until the close of the
school year as several/activities are
yet iaprogress. However, the total
sum raised by the campaign commit-
tee during this year will be approxi-
mately $8,000.
The Christmas bazaar realized
$2200, the candy booth $1000, sacrifice
dances $1217.90, Masque's play $500,
Junior Girls' play $1000, flowers $348,
and special house stunts and other

stunts Alpha Phi sorority should be
given honorable mention as their
stunt was a dance which realized $325
for the fund, the largest amount con-
tributed by any organization as an in-
dividual house gift.
Neva Lovewell, '22, chairman of the
campaign committee, in her report to
the League, gave special mention to
the following girls who have done a
large amount of the work of the cam-
paign committee this year: Dorothy
Jeffrey, '23, who has had charge of the
buying of supplies for the booth and
who has been treasurer of the com-
mittee, Margaret Whyte, '23, chairman
of the tea room given as a part of the
Christmas bazaar and also chairman
