larger scale, and some of its services

son, the Union made a commendable
The theory on which the Union does
business is to charge reasonable pric-
es, make some profit, and spend prac-
tically every cent so made, on its
members. Therefore, the more the
Union makes, the more it can do for
its members.
Practically the only department
which showed any loss at all was the
food department. The cafeteria show-
ed substantial profit, but the main
dining room was operated at a loss.
The reason for this is not hard to
find., In a city the size of Ann Ar-
bor, .a consistent enough demand does
not exist for the high- class service
which is necessarily maintained. Dur-
ing half of September, December, Jan-
uary, February, April and June, and
all "of July and August, patronage is
almost negligible during the week. Yet
the full corps of cooks and workers
must be maintained in order to pro-
vide the service when it is wanted.
Much of the time, therefore, the main
dining room does practically no busi-
ness, but it must be maintained for
the general efficiency of the Union as
a club. When people are there, they
are there in such numbers that the
main dining room appears to be do-
ing a large business all of the time,
when such is not the case. The food
department, however, is only one de-
partment, and the small loss there
shown is easily made up by the other
branches. The big fact is that the de-
partments altogether made nearly
Michigan men should do as much
business at the Union as they can. It
is their club-no one's else. It is ef-
ficiently managed as shown by the en-
couraging financial report. And above
all, the more the Union makes, the
more it will do for its members. It
is doing much now. It can do muchI
more. The business for the coming year
should go well over the half mil-
lion dollar mark.
Little more than twelve hours from
now, when the setting sun begins to
leave a trail of darkness behind it,
the witches will come forth from
their dismal haunts and ride the skies
on their broomsticks. Black cats will
prowl the fence tops; scarecrows will
come to life; and spirruts, grotesque,
fanciful spirruts will roam the streets

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Whenever the Union publishes a fl-
nancial report in The Daily we find a
statement something like this:-"and
this business has been conducted
with a net loss of 'only' $23.78*" Some
of us would like to know why there
should be any loss. Every so often
someone writes an article for The
Daily purporting to explain why the
Union does not clear expenses. Fur-
niture repair seems to be a particu-
larly popular item, and it is usually
suggested that those departments
which do pay must assist in the ex-
penses of those which do not. We,
understand that. But how many de-
partments do not pay? Why should
not the Union not only make expenses
but do better than that?
Prices at the Union are not low.!
In fact they are the commonest source
of grievance among the student body.
Students frequently patronize private
enterprises rather than pay Union'
rates. Prices are high enough in
Ann Arbor anyhow, and as someone
remarked in one of my classes this
morning, they won't come down as
long as -the Union maintains its
presentrstandard. It is evident, on
the other hand, that the tap room and
the cafeteria should be making large
profits. It would be ridiculous if they
were not doing so. The billiard rooms
and bowling alleys must certainly be
making money, and I can't see how the
barber shop, dance hall or dining
room can be operating at a loss. In
fact it strikes me that we pay for al-
miost everything we do at the Union
as we would elsewhere, except that we
may use the telephone booths and the
reading room, and if our membership,
fees do not cover those items it might
be well to discharge the doorman to
cut down expenses, and let the man,
at the desk be responsible for keeping
the women out of the building. As
Michigan men we are proud of the'
Union as an institution, but as paying
members of that institution we want
service and efficiency. The frequen-
cy with which complaints are heard
about the campus make it apparent
that something should be done to dis-
pel the dissatisfaction, whether it be
more explaining or a change in pol-
icy. R. W. C., '24.
(Daily Illini)
Monday evening an organization
was perfected for the Stadium-plus
campaign among students of the uni-
versity. Although the word Stadium
and the idea of helping pay for it has
oeen part of university life these last
two years, a word or two concerning
this latest opportunity to help will
not go amiss.
Freshmen and new students are of
course those who will be solicited to
a large degree, though those upper-
classmen who did not feel -that they
could help last year or the year be-
fore will be given another chance. The
freshmen are in the majority, how-
ever, and a bit of Stadium history
will be of interest.
In previous Stadiumn drives the
workers were handicapped becauseof
the vague statements concerning lo-
cation, size and time of erection of
the structure. They could not tell
the students and friends of the Uni-
versity anything definite except that
the Stadium would be built if enough'

money were subscribed. This fall it
is different. The work has begun and
the Stadium is assured. We know.
when it wil be finished, what it will
look like, how large it will be and
almost everything we can wish to
know about it. New subscribers may
see for themselves.
A word or two about the Stadium
and its cost. Contracts have been let
for work amounting to $1,600,000,
which does not include the work on
the track within the Stadium field,!
the tennis courts, football fields and
other features of the new group; nor
does it include grading around the
Stadium itself. Actual subscriptions
checked in the office of the Stadium
rector total $1,800,000. At first thought
this might lead some to believe that the
present drive is not necessary, that
it is merely to get a surplus to use if
needed. Such an assumption is farE
from correct.
No campaign for large sums of'
money has ever been subscribed in
which there was not much shrinkage
between subscriptions and collec-
tions. Universities which have built
stadia and union buildings have found
that shrinkages sometimes as much!
as 30 per cent are inevitable. Un-
fortunate as it may seem, such is the
case with any large group; it is the
case with those who subscribed to the
Illinois Stadium. Of the total amount
due on the first payment to the Sta-
dium, to have been paid last January,
80 per cent has been collected. Of
the second installment, due in June,
about half lab hen naid.

r , .... ... :

ble to collect 80 per cent of the I
amount now pledged that means only
$1,280,000 to pay contracts let for a'
million and a half. And this does not
take into consideration that the field
must be put in order and other min-
or details of the work finished.
The class of 1926 will get more
benefit from the Stadium than any of
those who have subscribed in thel
past. It wil be in use during three
years of their college career. A sub-
scription of such amounts that the
total will be raised to two million or
more will assure the Illinois Stadium.!
Now that the University has been
given money to complete its large
telescope maybe some philanthropic
soul will be able to see our need of!
a Union swimming pool.
