Contractors Predict Comtpletlon Early
In January; Expect To Start On
Foundation FormsSc n o
DETAILS ARE UNDECIDED
Recent announcement of the ac-
ceptance of bids and the signing of
contracts for the construction of the
new University Museum building,
along with the excavation work al-
ready well under way, mark the first
stages in the construction of the new
museum which will house the pres-
ent collections of the geology, botany,
zoology, and anthropology depart-
ments.
According to Spence Bros. of Sag-
inaw, general contractors, the ex-1
cavation work ought to be completed
and the first work on the foundationt
forms started by the end of next week.
Work will continue steadily as fast I
at conditions will permit, as the,
building is scheduled for completion
early in January, 1928.
Detailed specifications of the pres-
ent plans are not definitely decided
upon, lbut according to Prof. Alex-
ander G. Ruthven, ofrthe zoology de-
partment and director of the museum,
the proposed four story structure will
be a modern adaptation of renais-
sance architecture executed in tapes-
try brick and buff bedford limestone.
"An interesting feature in the con-
struction of this building," Profes-
sor Ruthven said, "is the departure
from the architectural style incopor-
ated in many more recently erected
University buildings by the reduc-
tion of window areas." The north
wing will be given over to individu-
al laboratories and storerooms, while
the exhibits of the different depart-
ments will occupy the section of the
building facing Washtenaw avenue.
In accordance with the proposed
plan of building projects on the cam-
pus, the addition of a south wig to
Angell hall will occupy the site of the
present zoology museum.
BAND WILL GIVE
INITIAL CONCERT
(Continued from Page One)
An opportunity to develop musical
talent has been aoffered the freshmen
and upperclassmen who did not make
the Varsity, through the regular re
hearsals under direction supplied b
by the University. Some member
have already filled vacancies in the
Varsity band, and with the tryouts
next fall, all men with Reserve band
experience will be given preference
over others for positions in the Var-
sity organization.
For the past two years the Re-
serve band has been organized under
the direction of the Varsity band. It
has acted as a reserve supply for the
Varsity, and has acted as the official
freshman band at class functions.
They played at the Fall games, are I
scheduled to appear in the place of
the Varsity for the Iowa-Michigan
basketball game Monday night, and
will play at some of the games of the
coming baseball season.
The concert will be free to the stu-
dent body and the general public.

All students enrolled in senior
courses in the PL. O. T. C. department
and who are not cadet company of-
ficers are being required to attend a
Cadet Officer's school which is held
at 7 o'clock every Wednesday even-
ing in room 1042 E. Engincering Bldg.
The purpose of this class is to provide
the advanced students with a sub-
stitute for the hour drill which was
required previous to this semester.
The class will be addressed by the
various officers in the R. O. T. C.
department on various military sub-,
jects. Captain L. Monroe Bricker is
giving the first three lectures on the
schedule. He gave the first of these,
"Industrial Mobilization As Organized
Under the National Defense Act" last
Wednesday. Last night the subJect wof
n, Captiani Bricker's addlress was!
