inent Men Express Need
r Michigan League Buildng


he Women's League campaign
ch is being carried on by the alum-
of the University is heartily en-
ued by the prominent men in Ann
.O an elsewhere. Some of their
:ements In regard to the need of a
gue building are as follows:
President Marion Leroy Burton:
The Michigan League Building is
the women. The whole under-
ing has been initiated, planned, and
led f9rward by the alumnae and
nen students. It will be organized,
tr6led, and used by and for the
nen just as the Michigan Union is
the men. In a very real and1 deep
se it will mean the establishment
.he life of the women of the Uni-
sity upon a dignified and perma- i
t basis. All of this does not mean,
ever, that this enterprise must be
ried to a successful conclusion by
women alone. They must have the
rty cooperation of every loyal
higan graduate and friend, for the
gue Building bears importantly
n the welfare of the University
a whole."
ent Junius E. Beal:
: am feeling the necessity of the
higan League Building very deep-
iowing the very great good it will
g to the women of the University
We1 as to the Alumnae. As the
ibr increases from year to year,
demands tbecome more and more
stent for taking care of the wo-
an4the 'problems become greater.
re should be no delay in housing
League properly. I believe the
is for the building will give them
luate accommodations and make
League efficient in taking care of
its needs. Ann Arbor people will
it useful as they do so often at
Michigan Union."
f. H. E. Riggs-member of the
iginal building committee of the
lehigan Union.

Union. It not only serves all
ps on the campus and provides a
a class club for students, alumni
faculty, but it makes possible the

tings which otherwise would never

hel need for a woman's building
illy as great now as the need for
Union was ten years ago. Until
Y a building is completed the Uni-
ity cannot adequately and fully
*e the women of the student and
nae bodies. It should have the
port of every friend of the Uni-i
ty of Michigan." -
A. Williams--president of thet
6rers and eclianics bank:
am fully in sympathy with the
Len's League and in their efforts
ecure a League Building in Ann
>r. I fully believe that they should

t of every Ann Arbor citizen and

and being exclusively for men,

vith the University or not, should
e to its support. Aid now, in the
nning of the Campaign-to show
spirit of Ann Arbor and its in-
at, to the outside world is far1
e valuable than any later ..on."
ge J. Burke-attorney to the1
ard of Regents

"The Michigan League building pro
gram Is a good one. It should mee
with universal encouragement an
support. There Is no doubt that i
wfll be of great benefit to the wome
of the University. I like the spiri
of democracy of the Michigan Unio
and I believe the present enterpris
will foster the same idea. Aside fron
this, locally, it will mean a splend
addition to the collection of beautifu
buildings of which Ann Arbor is s
justly proud."
Robert F. Gauss, cashier of the Firs1
National Bank:
"The Michigan Union has become a
very necessary part of the Universit
in the education and development o
men. There is rapidly coming to b
just as urgent a need for a simila
institution for the women students
The University of Michigan is definite-
ly committed to co-education. It there
fore follows that the Michigan Leagu
is inevitable.
The heavy demands upon the stat
for new class room buildings pre-
cludes the possibility of appropriatior
for League purposes. The mone
must therefore be raised as were th
funds for the Union-by contribution
from those interested. We have ex-
pectation that such a worthy cause
will meet with a ready response."
J. Sphnser lilekenson, secretary of th
University of Chicago:
"I am delighted to know that it is
very likely that the women of the Uni-
versity of Michigan are to have a
good and suitable a place as provide
for the men in the Michigan Union."
Michael Fritz, president of Ann Arbo
Savings Thnk:
"In my opinion, in such a great co-
educational institution as the Univer-
sity of Michigan, of which we are all
so proud, the efforts of the Women's
League must be keenly appreciated
The University of Michigan League
Building should receive general en-
couragement and should have the sam
high place of usefulness as is now
enjoyed by the operations of the Michi-
gan Union in blending the relations
between the general public and our
great University."
Carl Braun, vice-president of the Ann
Arbor Savings bank, and head of th
University branch:
"The intensive campaign about tc
begin for the Michigan League build-
ing has my heartiest approval. I have
long felt that such a building, mak-
ing possible a unity of effort and pro..
viding a common meeting ground for
the women, is greatly to be desired.
Years ago when my son was but a
sophomore in high school I was so
convinced of such a need among the
men that I then tqok- out a life mem-
bership for him in- the Michigan Union.
It is to be hoped that every citizen in
Ann Arbor will give the League pro-
ject his support,"
Sidney Robbins, president-elect of the
Rotary Club:
"It is only fair that the women of
this University should be cared for as
adequately as the men. I have no
doubt that a building such as the pro-
posed Michigan League building would
nake them feel themselves a real part
of the life on the campus and add to
the value of the University life from
the women's point of view."
