Driveway Between N.S. and Chemistry
Buildugs May Be Replaced
By Lawn
The date for commencing building
operations on the new Medical build-
ing will be definitely decided when the
Committee of Five on the University
building program convenes at 10 o'-
clock this morning in the office of
President Marion L. Burton. President
Burton is chairman of the committee
which also includes, Prof. John Shep-
ard, supervisor of plans, Secretary
Shirley W. Smith, Regent William L
Clements and Mr. Albert Kahn, con-
suiting architect.
Approximately $889,000 is available
for the building as a result of the ac-
tion of the legislature last spring and
plans for the building are now com-
pleted so that little delay is antici-
pated in beginning work. The build-
ing will occupy the triangular piece of
land between East University and
Washtenaw avenues as far down on
East University, as the new engineer-
ing shops.
The committee will also take up sev-
eral problems of campus landscape
changes, notably the proposed remov-
al of the driveway between the Na-
tural Science and Chemistry buildings
and the planting of trees and shrub-
bery in its place. It has already been
decided that East University avenue
shall be torn up from North Univer-
sity to South University avenues some
time next spring. When this is ac-
complished, the campus will stretch
from State street to Church street
without any interruption.,
Cranham, England, Oct. 16-General
Oglethorpe, founder of the State of
Georgia, like the Indian princess Po-
cahontas and his more distant and re-
mote precursor Tutenkhamen is to
remain in his original burial place.
Yielding to British public opinion
which has almost reached the point
of unanimity, Dr. Cornwell Jacobs,
ptesideht of Oglethorpe university, to-
day abandoned his project to trans-
port the Georgian hero's ashes to Ani-
The hue and cry raised throughout
England that Americans desire to take
possession of England's .distinguished
dead as well as its mostprized art
objects and reliquaries, is thus sil-
Dr. Jacobs accepted defeat with
true Southern grace and courtesy. He
feels at least that one result of his
evacuation is to make General Ogle-
thorpe a world's figure and not mere-
ly the builder of a single state. In-
dicative of his great spirit of rever-
ence for the famous general was his
last act this afternoon in returning
to the rector of All Saint's church a
small fragment of Gen. Oglethorpe's
coffin which had dropped off in the
course of his 138 years internment.


Faculty Members Unanimously
Approve Fair In luterviews

Final action in creating the Union
fair to provide money for the comple-
tion of the swimming pool will be
taken at a meeting of the Senate Com-
mittee on Student Affairs that will
be held at 4:15 o'clock this afternoon
in University hall. The sanction of
the committee is necessary before
further arrangements for the fair can
be made.
SCan Use Field House
Permission to use the Yost Field
house for the affair, given Saturday
at a meeting of the Board in Control
of Athletics, gave first incentive to the
proposition of the fair. The Board
granted the field house to the Union
for the purpose in order to bring about
the completon of the swimming pool;
and thus encourage athletics in this
line at the University.
According to the plans of the Un-
program Will Include Cheers, Songs,
and Slides of the Team in
Judge Frank Murphy, '13L, will be
the principal speaker at the Ohio State
game pep meeting to be held at 5
o'clock next Friday afternoon, it was
announced last night by the Student
council. Prof. William A. Frayer, of
the history department, will be the
faculty speaker for the affair and
John W. Kelly, '24L, president of the
Student council will be master 'of
Considered by many to be one of
the most active aldinni of the Univer-
sity, Judge Murphy is expected to
make a great appeal Friday night for
support and loyalty to the team,
which has probably its hardest bat-
tle of the year the next day. Judge
Murphy has spoken at several student
gatherings before, including Cap
Night In 1921.
Professor Frayer, who will also
speak Friday is active in several stu-
ldent affairs and has appeared before
the student body on similar occasions
in the past.
It is expected by the committee in
charge that Hill auditorium will be
filled to capacity by students, alumni,
faculty members, and friends as this'
gathering will be the first football pep
meeting held this year. The remaind-
er of the program includes yells, led{
by the Varsity cheerleader squad, and
songs, lead by the Varsity band, with
the assistance of the Varsity Glee club
which will be seated in a reserved
section in the front of the auditorium.
Slides of the team, Coach Yost and
Captain Kipke will be flashed upon a
Bitter Animosity
Tears Ec. Faculty
Relations between the members of
the economics faculty could hardly
be more strained than they will be
when Prof. E. E. Day, head of the de-
partment, leads his veteran baseball
team against the remains of the team
that was captained by Professor
Sharfman last year.
Last year, in a five game series, the1
Daylites won the pennant after a tre-
mendous ninth inning rally in the
fifth game. As a penalty the Sharf-
manites were supposedl to foot the
bill for a mammoth banquet at Bill
and Mert's, but due to the leave of
absence which he secured, Professor
f Sharfman was able to leave town be-
fore the date of the big affair.
This year Professor Day hopes to
come even closer to a free meal, and
hopes to take the first step when e

ion officials in charge of the arrange-
ments for the fair, it would be held
in the field house at some date imme-
diately following the Christmas holi-
days. Fraternities and campus groups
would cooperate in running side shows
and entertainment. It is planned to
hold the fair on a Friday and Satur-
day night.
The money that would be earned in
this way would go toward the com-
pletion of the Union swimming pool.
Similar fars in the past resulted in
raising large sums for the construe-
tion of the present Union building, and
it is thought by officials of the Un-
ion that with the present large enroll-
ment little difficulty will be encoun
tered in realizing a large sum from
the proposition.
Are Favorable
Several faculty members when in-
terviewed yesterday as to their opin.
ion on the advisability of such a fair
expressed themselves unanimously in
favor of the proposition. It was their
verdict that the Union pool should be
completed in the near future in any
way possible, and they agreed that the
plan of the fair was well fitted for the
"I am in favor of some unified ac-
tion to provide funds immediately'for
the completion of the swimming pool,"
