as a dramatic unit is reported to be
proceeding faster than was at first
thougt would be the case by the
heads of the public speaking depart-
ment, and as a deinite step along this
line, the old University Hall auditor-
ium is being refittedfand idone over.
It will henceforth be known as the
University theater. The number of
seats has been ut down and those re-
maining have been so arranged as to
afford nore comfortable seating ca-
pacity. No use of the balcony will be
made for the present.
According to present plans, outlin-
ed by David Owen, director of Play
Productions, the floor of the auditor-
mm will be tightened and carpeted'
and a lobby will be constructed and
fitted up in the rear. A box office will
take care of all tickets and business
in the future.
Tall screens are being constructed
now which will extend from the stage
to tie side walls of the auditorium,
cutting off all tie undesirable space
caused by the peculiar round shape of
the stage, and in the future a solid
proscenium wall will be built out. Th
walls are being decorated in gray
with maroon effect, and this color
scheme will be carried out throuh-
out the theater, including the cur-
tains which will cover all windows.
An indl;rect lighting system is to be
installed in order to enhance the new

come as new students.
"Somewhere in this country, lulled
as it is~by the false sense of security
incident to material ease, a great uni-
versity with vision and the right to
grasp and draw Excalibur must arise.
Ninety years have seen the youth per-
iod of Michigan, and now, before it is
too late, must come the facing of
greater tasks, the more gruelling bat-
ties and-God willing-the more
splendid victories," Dr. Robbins con-
Reminiscences of 46 years on the
faculty of the University provided the
subject of Dean Mortimer Cooley of
the Colleges of Engineering and
Dean Cooley recalled that when he
appeared on the campus of the Uni-
versity at the age of 26 the older
faculty members included such figures
as Winchel in geoloy, Olney in
mathematics, Cooley in the Law
school, Greene fi engineering, and
Denison, also in the engineeringI
"Old Ann Arbor town has changed
greatly. The plank walks are gone,
and the stump over which we used to
stumble on our way home from the
Baptist church," he said.
Prof. Ralph Aigler of the Law
rebool, a m mber of the Board in Con-
trol of Athlet cs, outlined briefly the
accomplishments of the University in
the filed of athletic competition. He re-
viewed the past successes of the school
and pointed out that the athletic
teams earn about $300,000 annually.
He said the reputation of the Uni-
versity for good sportsmanship was
just as notable and morn to be prized
than the victories won, and cited the
case of the Michigan captain who re-
