nnae and undergraduate women
University of Michigan are
definitely accepted and are being used
merely as a working basis. The thing
under consideration at present is the
location of the building and this de-
pends largely on the University build-
Ptovision has been made in the
plans, which have been submitted by
Pond and Pond, for a kitchenette, club
rooms for women's organizations, com-
mittee and dining rooms, and an as-
sembly room which will accomodate
from 600 to 700 couples dancing, or
will seat more than 1000 within sound
of a speaker's voice. More than 1700
persons can be served at one time from
the kitchen and serving rooms.
The lounge and conservatory with
the intervening corridor will offer a'
gathering place for women while the
reading room above will give a quiet'
place for study. Offices for social and
business administration will be on the
first floor while offices for clerks and
stenographers will be in the basement
Women Went After Gym In 1896---
And Got It; Now The League Plans
New Home And Needs Assistance
(By Marion Kerr).
Did you ever see a girl walk into
Waterman gymnasium with her gym
bloomers under her arm?
Well, you ought to have been here
back in 1896 when the girls "didn't
have no gym 'r nuthin' o' their own."
They took all their weekly, or weakly,
calesthenics right down where the boys
did, only at different times, of course,
and lots of times the poor girls could-
nt get into their lockers after gym
class, and they'd be scared for fear-
well, for fear they wouldn't get out
in time. A lady told me one time that
she couldn't get her locker open at all
and had to go all the way home in her
gym bloomers. It was cold, too, that
day, she met a lot of people on the
way home she didn't want to meet.
All in all the girls had a pretty hard

credit in the University will be eligible
for membership and any woman now
enrolled may sign the pledge and upon
payment of the first installment of $10
in February, when thenecessary 15
hours of credit have been earned, will
receive her membership.
The Alumnae Council has made a
removed the curls from the front of
their ears, dropped their crochet work
and started in.
They'd build themselves a little gym
all their own where they could take
all the calesthenics they wanted to,
every single week, they wouldn't have
to have all their parties in the land-
lady's parlor where the claw legged
davenport.jhad tufts of hair protruding.
They wanted a place where they could
do some minuets and things that girls

U HALL, NEW PLAN
Hot dog! doughnuts, hamburgers,
lemonade, pop, peppermints, and
chocolate in sticks, bars, drops, or
nice fat squares, the kind your old
girl used to make you on Sunday
Sounds like a circus in the fifth di-
mension,, doesn't it? Or a small boy's
dream, or the orphan asylum's idea of
Christmas. You're all wrong, it's bet-
ter'n that. There's going to be a bulg-
ing booth perpetually full of susten-
ance for that 9 o'clock starvation peri-
od-or, why limit the period to 9 o'-
The booth will be placed in Uni-
versity hall, in the women's room and
beginning within the next few weeks
will dispense with the above mention-
ed goodies, and others as per request.
It is expected that the booth will
not only add to that 8 o'clock attend-
ance but will relieve acute pains gen-
erally felt by the breakfastless during
the 11 o'clock session.
Men will be cordially welcomed in
the invitation to partake of said sus-
tenance and for that purpose may,
grace the women's room. The booth
is another device for acquiring money
for the new Women's League campaign.'
Start Drive For
With Big Bazaar
Hey, everybody, c'mon over! We're
gonna have a big time in a couple o'
weeks. Remember all the pecks of
popcorn balls and peppermint drops
and great big pieces of fudge you
used to get at the church bazaar, to-
gether with all those fancy-work pil-
low cases and crocheted yokes and
things you gave away for Christmas
that you never had time to make and
wanted people to think you did? The
whole big "shebang" with real, hon-
est-to-goodness plays and a great big
auction, too, and lots of other nice
little things, sare booked for the Wo-
men's League parlours Friday and
Saturday, Dec. 9 and 10.
The bazaar wil open Friday after-
noon, and will close Saturday even-
ing with a big auction, where you
may be able to buy some of the things
you couldn't afford to own before.
The general, admission of 10 cents
will be turned over to the Women's
League building fund. Women's
League booths will have popcorn balls
and candy, Ann Arbor churches will
combine to furnish fancy work booths
