The plan proposed by a special com-

passed by both the Board of Directors
and Board of Governors of the Union
late last week,
Paul E. Buckley, general manager
of the Unpion, called attention to the
added cfficincy which would bey

ion, the old organization with both a'
Board of Governors and a Board of

the meeting of students which may

plan of reorganization embodying a
new Board of Directors will be of un-

Extra Lighting Effects
The Dutch village scheme as laid
_ut by the planner will afford oppor-
tunity for more than the usual amount
of lighting effects. It will be carried
out in both Waterman and Barbour
gymnasiums,' and is being especially
built to fit the auditoriums, thus elimi-
nating any incongruous effect. A huge
windmill 'will be erected at one end
of the gymnasium, behind which will
be a large moon. The moon will serve
as a mediumfor changing the lighting
during the course of the dance." It
can be illuminated in several shades
of red and yellow and the blue sky,
overhead will have corresponding
shades of darkness and light. At
various points around the floor will
be situated lighthouses, from which,
spotlights will play oii the dancers.
