Installing Of Organ
At Hill Auditorium
Progresses Rapidly
Framework Construction Completed;
Electrical Wiring Begun
Work upon the new Skinner organ
which is now being installed in Hill
auditorium is going on schedule, ac-
cording to Pa.lmeer Christian, Uni-
versity organist and designer of the
organ. The whole- framework of the
instrument has already been erect-
ed, and work upon the wiring is now
in progress. Many' miles of wires are
yet to be put in before further tests
can be made, and according to es-
timates, will occupy the time of the
workmen for about the next three
weeks.
All except two carloads of thel
pipes are now in the building, and
will be installed as soon as the wires
are in and the chests are tested. The!
rest of the pipes will be here soon, y
according to a recent letter from the
Skinner com-pany. Chiristian recently
received another letter from the
Skinner company which stated that
the console of the organ was now
completed in the factory and wouldl
be0 sent as soon as possible. As soont
as. theconsole arrives here, the co -
plete organ parts will be under one
roof.
Christian praised especially the
work of 'the foreman in charge of the
work, Leonard Johnson, and of his
assistant, Robert, Peterson. Thes~e
two men have been workingcon-
tinually since they arrived here,
about five weeks ago, and have not
found it necessa'ry to correct any of
their work thus far.

COMPLETE WOMEN'S GOLF
COURSE AT FIELD HOUSE
Work on the installation of an in-
door golf course in the basement of
the new Women's Field t-louse is just
being completed by the Building and !
Grounds department. The coursev
consists of five booths, each to ac-
comnmodate nine players at one time.
Each of these booths is lined on both i
'sides with special golf netting to.
keep the ball from going out of the]
booth, while at one end is a heavyV
canvas backstop, in front of which t
a target is painted. The netting form-r
ing the booths is built on rollers so
that it can be rolled up to the ceilingh
whenever the floor space is needed.1
The job, when completed, will'
amount to about $500 worth of work.p
