In reply to a query regarding the,

Ruthven stated that whereas it is
the University's duty only to edu-

him, the student's responsibility is
to conform to the regulations of
the University which in the opinion
of those employed by the sta te to

Contracts for the erection of a

Parents Are Responsible.
To further clarify his division of
responsibilities, Dr. Ruthven' made
the following analogy, in which he
likened the student's duty to "that
of an employee in a large manu-
facturing enterprise, which, let us
say, is engaged in making wheels.
As long as this employee turns out
good wheels, he is qualified for his
job. But if he should come drunk
to work one day, he would be dis-
missed, even though he continued
to make good wheels, because he
would be a bad influence upon thel
morale of the rest of the men, and
because of the unsavory light in
which he would put the establish-
The case of the student is exactly,

comes as a climax to the dormitory
project which had its inception in
April, 1928, when the Regents ap-
proved a plan to build a woman's
dormitory. A number of stipula-
tions, apparently intended to in-
sure the success of the proposed
dormitory as a paying proposition,
were attached to the Regents' ap-
E proval, but the plan went through
and excavations were begun in the
fall of 1928.
Delays arose when no contractors
would estimate to do the job at{a
figure substantially less than $1,-
000,000. The Guardian Trust com-
pany was willing to loan only $850,-
000 for the structure; and this sum,
plus $100,000 which the Detroit
Alumnae association guaranteed to
raise, represented the total funds
Since last fall, various minor
'changes have been made in the
plans, in an attempt to reduce the
cost of the proposed building at
least $50,000, 'to bring it down to
the $950,00 level. Present plans,
which have met with the approval
of University officials and of the
various contracting companies, call
for a building which is little differ-
ent from the original plans in ex-
terior architecture. Slight changes
-have been made in interior plans,
'however, and the building has been
designed to accommodate 48 fewer
students than the 500 originally,
