Of WOiE S L nL1U'[.Pablo Homs, a visitor in Ann
Arbor from Malaga, Spain, is the
donor of the latest gift to the new
Michigan League, a fountain ofa
Spanish tile to be constructed in
th i wall of the interior garden. The

At the regular meeting of the
oard of Directors of the Women's
e.gue yesterday morning, an-
ouncement was made that, on
uesday, October 30, the New York
heatre Guild wouldf present in
4 Whitney theatre the southern
olk play, "Porgy," by Du Bose and
orothy Heyward, the proceeds of
ihich. will go to the league. Two
erformances of "Porgy" will be
iven on Oct. 30, one a matinee,
nd the other an evening perform-

design of the fountain was drawn
by I. K. Pond of Chicago, one of
the architects of the League, when
he was in Ann Arbor last week.
Mr. Homs' gift was inspired by
his very keen enthusiasm in re-
gard to the enterprise of the Wom-
en's League and the Alumnae or-
ganizations, and the wonderment
that is nearly always forthcoming
of the part of a visitor to the half-
completed building. His daughter

be announced in The Daily later.
The chairman of the Board of
Representatives reported that
house organization would begin to-
morrow, and that the first meet-
ing of the Board will be held on
Saturday, Oct. 6. The Board will
work this year to clarify house
rules, and women will be held re-
sponsible only for the League house
In report of the World Fellowship
committee it was stated that there
are 14 new foreign women on
campus, and 12 old ones. The com-
mittee plans a tea to be given in
honor of Mrs. Sun Yat Sen when
she visits Ann Arbor later in the
year, and the Chinese women will

Mr. Homs at first proposed to
send an old Spanish fountain to
be installed in the garden of the1
League. However, it was finally
decided that a fountain of modern3
design would more artistically har-
monize with th architectural en-
semble. The distinction of Span-
ish tile lies in its deep colorings of
red, blue and yellow. To outline
and reproduce the colors in the
fountain, Mr. Homs has also gen-
erouslb offered to provide +seeds
and bulbs for flowers and shrubs.
According to the sketch made by
Mr. Pond, the fountain is to be
six feet in= height and it will ex-
tend for twelve feet along the
wall. On it will appear four crests,
one of -the Spanish nation, one of
the United States, the crest of the
University of Michigan, and of the1
Women's League. A design similar
to the .one built in the walls of the
building will be reproduced in the
fountain, while the richly colored
Spanish tile is to provide the cen-
tral interest both in the fountain
itself and in the semi-circular
pavement, immediately in front of
the fountain.
According to Mr. Homs, the tiles
for the fountain will probably
come from Santa Maria de las
Cuevas, popularly known as La
Cartuja, situated on the banks of
the River Guadalquivir near Sevil-
la. La Cartuja was at one time a
monastery which suffered greatly
from the havoc of war during the
Revolution. In 1839 it was conver-
ted into a works for making richly
