Scores of colorful costumes, gaily
colored lights and all of the atmos-
phere of the picturesque Latin quar-
ter of Old Paris marked the sixth an-
nual Architect's May Party, held last
night in Barbour gymnasium under
the auspices of the students of the
architectural college. The affair this
year took the form of a costume party,
the first of its kind at this University
for some time, and it's great success
last night may cause the students of
the architectural college to make their
annual frolic a costume party in fu-
ture years.
Dancing started promptly at 9 o'-
clock, the music of Rhodes largest or-,
chestra giving movement to the color-
ful mass which was made up of a'com-
bination of costumes and settings. The
Latin Quarter was present in all ofI
its completeness, with the Boulanger-
to the Hotel de Printemps, the ,Vin
Rouge, and countless other typical andj
interesting bits of this student section
of Paris. Above all was an immense1
central fixture, designed by Alven
Marvin, '25A, and built by students of
the college working under his direct-
ion for more than a week's time. The
soft effect of glowing lights, hidden
beneath colored streamers, gave thel
feeling that the blue sky was over-
head, and that all of the freedom and
pleasure imaginable was there for
one evening, one annual evening, of

To the Fathers of Michigan Stu-
With all the campus cordial-
ity at our command we welcome
you to the campus of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, and not only to
the formal gatherings which are
incidental to your visit here, but
also to the whole life of the Un-
iversity as you will see it in all
its phases. We hope that you will
enter into it while you are here,
and that we can give you some
idea of what we are really try-
ing to do.
We have a great pride in the
University and all that it stands
for. Its past history is a suf-
ficient inspiration to call forth the
best of our abilities and energy;
and we have determined that its
future shall be worthy of the past.
We want to enlist your aid in
these efforts, and above all we
hope that your visit here will in-
troduce you, if you have never
before experienced it, to some
understanding of the true spirit
of Michigan. Michigan is great in
its enrollment and in its mere
physical equipment; we want you
to see that Michigan is also great
in spirit, and that the will to be
and to achieve lies at the heart
of the University, and inspires
faculty and students alike in their
manifold activities. This is your
University, the University to which
you have sent your children and
to whose maintenance you contri-
bute. We hope that by this visit
you will come to know it better,
and that having once come here,
you will came again and again.
