Long Study by University Offii4
Is Background For Comnpreheu
Physical expansion at Michigan in
the shape of new buildings is now to
go along with the great growth in
the- number of students, according to
the building program which is being
gradually realzed. Since the begin-
ning of the war in-1914 a marked in-
rush of students in all departments of
the University has caused a crowded
condition wI ich las became more and
more serious. CId fire-trap buildings
have had t.V be retained in order to
accomodate in some measure the in-
Not only has there been a great
shortage of class rooms but there has
been a aecessary limitation in equip-
ment due to the inability to house the
instruments. On first consideration
the proposed building program seems
impractically large, but considering
that it is to cover a period of from 25,
to -50 years, addition of buildings does
Lot appear to be so rapid.
'The immediate plans made pos-
sible py state appropriations and by
private gifts include the completion
at once of the.n.ew Dental building
and the construction of the Engineer-
ing shops and laboratories, the model
high school, the Physics building, the
foundation of the Literary building,
and the Lawyers' club and dormitory.
The building for Lawyers' club and
dormitory js not included in the state
program but will be constructed by
money provided for by private gift.
The Clements Library, which is rap-
idly nearing completition, also is a
gift, the funds being donated by Re-
gent William L. Clements.
buildings which will necessarily
have to be constructed through pri-
vate gifts are the Women's building
to be known' as "The League", and the
campanile. As President Marion L.
Burton indicates in his article in the
Dec. 14 Michigan Alumnus which ap-
pears tomorrow, "There is ample evi-
dence on tilissue that our problems
have been viewed comprehensively
and that ;we know whither we are
bound. Time and patien ce will d
their .work... Let no one imagine that
all the proposedexpansion of the cam-
pus can possibly come within one
generation" ' '
f those buildings which will soon
be an imediate possibility is the new
Literary building, (1 on the map).
Excavation is already nearly com-
pleted and the construction of the
tutnel for the main heating and wa-
ter pipe lines will begin as soon as
possible, In contrast to many of the
"factory type" of structures which
dominate tie campus today the new
Literary unit will' be of a more re-
fined architectural design, in the Ren-
This first unit of the Literary
building will accommodate work in
English, rhetoric and the classics,
with rooms for actuarial work and the
compilation of statistics. A bureau of!
government research will also be
housed in this structure in addition
to the oifhes of the men having class-1
es in this unit. Ofices of the Dean of
the Graduate school an, of the Dean
of. the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts will occupy the 'first
floor 'of' the building.:-Lower floors4
will include a study hall and some
unassigned class rooms.
'he next largest structures .being
erected at the present time is the new
engineering shops and laboratories
building, (21), facing on east Univer-
sity avenue and having wings run-1
ning back to Church street. The main}
facade will be on South University
avenue. In general, those depart-!
ments of the ' engineering profession
taught here which have grown so fast
in recent years as to necessitate im-
mediate expansion to new quarters:
will be included in this unit.
The structure has four ,main floors
with a basement of, the same height
as each story extending under each
wing, A storage section is also pro-
vided under the front part of the
structure. Attempt has been made to
locate rooms demanding quiet such as

a wonderful day it always was. The after-
noon was always spent in making candy-and
