Bartlett To -pe k Of "Responsibility
Of Highway Offica" At
Afternoon Session
Highway legislation, and contract
and materials performance, were the
chief subjects of discussion in ad-
dresses given by members of the state
highway department yesterday in the
morning and afternoon sessions of the
13th annual conference o highway
engineering, which is in a four-day
convention here.
The principal address of the eve-
ning, which is to be given by Thomas'
H. McDonald, chief, of the United
States bureau of public roads at
Washington, D. C., was called off,
when Prof. Roger L. Morrison, who
is in charge of the program, received
a telegram from Mr. McDonald re-
gretting his inability to attend the
conference due to urgent business in
the west. Consequently, the evening
session was postponed. Mr. McDon-
ald was scheduled to give an illus-
trated lecture on "The Historical De-
velopment of European Highways."
Three Morning Addresses
"Contract Performance," was the
subject of the address given by Martin
DeGlopper, assistant construction en-
gineer in the state highway depart-
ment, at the morning session. He was
followed by II. A. Miles, assessment
engineer, who spoke on "Relation of
County Drains to the Highway."
Prof. Roger L. Morrison, director of
the state highway laboratory, read a
paper on "Materials Performance."
"The highway laboratory of the Uni-
versity is establishing for the purpose
of finding new methods in road con-
struction, and we are ready at any
time to cooperate with road builders'
and to help them solve their prob-
lems," he said.
At the afternoon session J. T. Shar-
pensteen, maintenance supervisor of
the state highway department, spoke
on "Maintenance of Gravel Roads." A.
L. Burridge, division engineer, dis-
cussed "Organization Efficiency in
Road Maintenance," and B. C. Tiney,
maintenance engineer, gave an ad-
dress on "Maintenance Accounting."
Officers of the Michigan association
of road commissioners and engineers
were also elected for the ensuing,
year. Fred H. Knox, road commis
sioner of Ionia county, was selected
as president of the body. He is to suc-
ceed Warren R. Townsend of Grand
Rapids. William W. Cox, of Port Hu-
ron was named vice president. K. I.
Sawyer of Ishpeming was re-elected
secretary and treasurer of the asso-
On the board of directors, George
W. McCalla of Ann Arbor and A. B.
Backus of Harbor Springs, were chos-
en to take office besides the president,
vice president, and secretary-treas-
urer of the association.
Today will be the last day of the
conference and only two cessions will
be held, one at 9:30 o'clock in the
morning and the afternoon session at
1:30 o'clock. Both will take place in
room 348 of the West Engineering

Expect To Ask Bids For Constrcteon
Work In 3lMonth; To Be Ready
For Next Fall
Contracts for drawing the plans of
the new Women's Field house were let
yesterday afternoon by the Board in
Control of Athletics to the lirm of
Fry and Kasurin, local architects, and
thus was started definite action to-
ward the building of an athletic plant
for Michigan women. The program
of expansion of women's athletics at
the University includes, besides the
erection of the field house, the exten-
sion of Palmer field into a playground
1200 feet long and 360 feet wide.
The carrying out of this expansion
program will mean the closing up of
an entire street, the extension of an-
other, and the expenditure of $250,-
000. The new field house will be lo-
cated at the end of north University
avenue, which has been recently ex-
tended beyond the Health service, and
will be directly across the street from
the new Museum building, the con-
tract for which has already been let.
Fourteenth street will be known as
Forest avenue and will extend up to
Couzens nurses' dormitory. All of
Belser street will be closed so as to
allow an unbroken connection .with
Palmer field.

All Lots Purchased
All lots south of Palmer field have
been bought by the University and
the houses are now being moved
off while others have already been
transferred during the past month.
Bids are now being received for the
clearing of the land and the cutting
down of the hill on Palmer field, a
distance of 24 feet to make the ground
level with the southern part of the
oresent women's field.
The architecture of the new Wo-
men's Field house will harmonize
with the colonial, style of Couzens
dormitory, which is located at the
other end of the new field. There will
be a long terrace on the side of the
Field house, opeining onto the playing
grounds. The general plans of Fry
and Kasurin call for about 2,000 lock-
ers, 64 showers, and 230 private
dressing booths. The building will be
of two stories with lockers and dress-
ing rooms on both floors.
On the first floor there will be a
lounge room, 40 feet .by 56 feet. There
will be a large Women's Athletic as-
sociation room besides five office
rooms, and a first aid station, and
a kitchen for refreshments and -so-
cials. A beautiful lobby will set off
all these rooms on the main floor. The
only athletic activity in the house will
be four bowling alleys. In addition,
there will be check rooms, supply
roonis, and a hand apparatus room.
All of the activities will be centered
on the field except bowling. There will
ne provisions for field hockey with
several playing fields. Track will
constitute a major spring and fall ac-
tivity with a large running track,
jumping standards and other appara-
tus. Considerable ground will be de-
voted to archery, which has been a
popular sport with Michigan women.
Additional tennis courts will be added
to answer the popular demand. Base-
ball fields will be built surrounding
the playing field.
Fry and Kasurin company are now
working on the detailed plans for the
construction so that in about a
month's time bids can be let for the
construction work of the project.
Every effort is being made to speed
up the preliminary plans so as to have
the field and Field house ready for
use n6Xt fall.
Building To Cost $175,000
The plans call for an expenditure
of $175,000 for the building and equip-
ment within the Field house. The re-
mainder of the $250,000 appropriation
for the expansion of women's athlet-
ics will be used towards preparing
the field for the games and sports pro-
At present the women use a small,
wooden house on Palmer field to serve
as their headquarters. This has long
ago proved inadequate for their out-
door athletic activities and a com-
mittee has been investigating the sit-
uation for the past few months, which
has resulted in the proposed expan-
sion. This is the first elaborate ex-
tension of women's athletics in the
University since the erection of Bar-
bour gymnasium.

Addresses Today
This morning, Jay Downer, chief en-
gineer of the Westchester county park
commission will talk on "County
Parks and Roadside Development".
Discussion of the question after the
address will be led by C. F. Boehler,
engineer of design in the state high-
way department, aid. H. F. Larson,
