University Lays
On Students' Bak


Supervision and Control Vested In
Board of Governors and
Student Committee
With living accomodations for 158
siudents, and with each room taken,
the new Lawyers' Club and Residence
hall, the latest addition to the Michi-
gan campus and a building destined to
become famous in all parts of the
country, opened its spacious portals
to law school men Saturday.
This first unit of the proposed club
consists of the main club room, front-
ing 'on South, State street, a huge
dining hall, which, lits fondly pre-
dicted, will be the most famous of any
single room on the campus, and the
three, story residence hall which is
divided into nine sections.
The main entrance to the huge
structure, costing, more than two
million dollars, is on South State
street. At the right is the club and
reading room, over whose doorway
there has been pliaced a modest in-
scribed stone tablet, bearing the
words; "The Lawyers' Club, foundea
April 1922 by William W. Cook, A. B.
10; L. L. B. 1882,'of the American
Administration of the club has bee
placed In the hands of Miss Inez V.
Bozorth directr, and Miss Cecil
Sharpe assistant director. These two
women will have complete charge o
all matters pertaining to the manage-
ment and running of the club, dormi-
tory and dining hall.
In addition to the 150 students who
have ben furnished living quarters,
more than 300 can be accomodated in
the dining hall, which opened last
Sunday. This service is open to all
students in the law school whether oi
not they are residing at the club.
Bqard is charged for at the rate o
seven dollars per week for, tihree
meals while rooming prices ranger
from $65 to $100 per semester, de-
pending upon the size of room rented.
These prices compare more than
favorably with the current rates in
Ann Arbor, Sunday evening supper
will also be served in the dining hall.
Three types of rooms, are povided
for in the building, single,-double, and
double-suite rooms. All are equipped
with hot and cold water, while shower
baths are located on the second floor
of each section. There are nine see-
tions, A, B, C, etc, each being different
in design .and construction. Each
room is equippetd with bed, chiffonier,
mirror, desk, reading lamp, and two
chairs for each occupant.
Eight guest rooms are included in
the building and are located above the
club room, these all have a bedroon,
bath, and large closet and are pro-
vided for use of any guests of stu-
dents living at the club. Room rates
are $2.00 per day.
Supervision and control of the
building is vested in aBoard of Gov-
ernorssconsisting of the Dean of the
law school and four members of the
law faculty. In addition there will
be a student club committee elected
each fall which shall consist of one
man from each section of the resi-
dence hall. This committee shall have
charge of the social program of the
club and shall make any necessary
suggetions to the Board of Govern-
ors, and shall also have the power to
make any rules for the club with the
approval of the faculty board.
Entrance to the building is gained
through two massive oak floors at the
main entranceway on State street,
which doors are duplicated at the
entrance immediately back of this,
looking out on the quadrangle. These
doors are deconated with wroughtiron

"Well, I guess I'll take History 14
ec 3 or 6, and a little pshych 7," re-
marked a typical student," as he
thought over his course, at home or on
the train. But, his fond dreams were
shattered on his arrival at the Uni-
versity to classify.
The catalogue presented on extra-
ordinary appearance, quite foreign to
its general make-up. The form was
the same,, but the printer seemed to
have used copy from some other col-
lege catalogue. The profs names
looked familiar but where, oh where,
had those numbers come from?
Yes, it was true, the erstwhile hap-
py student went to work to renew his
acqauintanceship with his courses,
but under a different cloak, loudly
lamenting the fact that he hadn't
taken Math. 1.
Under the revised plan this year
beginning courses are numbered
starting with 31 or 101 and secondary
courses starting at 201.

Exactly on scheduled time Michi-
gan's new $1,200,000 literary building
will open its doors to the student
body this morning as one of the best
equipped structures on the campus.
Although a little cleaning and touch-
ing up yet remains before the build-
ing is entirely finished, the majority
of the workmen have already com-
pleted their tasks.
When the last stroke shall have
been pronounced finished at least
three weeks hence, the new building
will stand forth complete to the small-
est detail, built correctly for the exact
demands of th modern educqation.
Every convenience to aid both student
and professor will have been provided.
The lobby, a huge open space at the
State street entrance is finished with
spec al travertine walls, the material
being imported from Italy, and with
a marble floor.
The ground, first, second and third1
floors are ready for occupancy now,I
while the fourth and fifth will not be
ready until later on. These two last
are for the use of the public speaking
and literary societies, who will have
their club rooms on the 4th floor and
the astronomy department which will
move in on the top story. Two small
telescopes as well as lecture and clas,
rooms will make up the equipment
Pxofessors are all moving into their
offices at the present time, among

Washington, Sept. 22.-Prohibition'
commissioner Ataynes, in a formal
statement late today declared there
could be no doubt that Representative
John Philip Hill, of Baltimore had
violated the prohibition statutes inj
making cider which had an acholic
strength of 2.75 percent. The con-
gressman challenged the commission-
ed to prosecute him.
Mr. Haynes said a definite course
of faction has been agreed upon be-
tween prohibition authorities and the
department of justice. Neither Mr.
Haynes nor the department of justice,
however, would discuss what course,
would be followed'. .

Contrary to early indications, but
according to predictions of the reg-
istrar's office, the enrollment at the
end of the registration period this
year shows a s.light decrease over
that of last year at this same time.
The registration mark last year at
this time was 8,454.
In piactically every college where
figures were available the figures
show a slight decrease over those of
last year at the close of the enroll-
ment period. However, after the late
enrollments are counted it is expect-
ed that the final registration will be
about the same as that of last year.-
The literary college reported a total
enrollment of 4,792 students. Of this

sic. Besides the names of Marie Jer-
itza, Jascha Heifitz, Guy Maier and
Lee Pattison, and William Wade Hin-
shaw's production of Mozart's "The
Marriage of Figaro," the list includes
Alfred Cortot, 'the famous French
pianist, and Sophie Braslau, the not--c
ed Metropolitan opera star.
The series as it is now planned is
;terally one of the finest ever con-
ducted by the School of Music. The
engagement of Marie Jeritza, the fam-
ous Viennese soprano, to open the
series .on October 23, is alone an
event of such musical importance as
has not occurred since the appear-
ance of Enrico Caruso a short time
before his death. Madame Jeritza,
the favorite opera star of Europe, and
the idol of Vienna, where she has for
several years been the leading prima
donna of the Royal Opera, has creat-
ed a greater sensation than any art-
ist that has appeared in America for
some time.
Making her debut in New York at]
the Metropolitan in 1921 in Korn-!
gold's "Die Tote Stadt," every ap-
pearance since that time has been a
veritable triumph. But it was not'
until she sang the role of Tosca,
which had always been regarded as
the special role of Geraldine Farrar,1
that she came into national. promi-
nence. Jeritza is possessed of mar- l
velous beauty, and an athletic vigor'
which has won for her the amused;
plaudits of her audiences. This will
be the second American tour of the
famous soprano.:
The second program on Novemberl
3, will be a two-piano recital by GuyI
Maier and Lee Pattison- Since the
war these two artists have grown in
favor until their entire season is al-
ways booked. They appeared in Ann
Arbor last year with great sucess.'
Particular interest is attached to this
concert as Mr. Maier is the head of
the piano department of the School of
Music this year.
