Over-capacity Use of Facilities
Characterizes First Year
of League Building.
Public Admitted to Building for
First Time on May 5 at
Open Reception.
One year ago today niarked the
official opening of the University
of Michigan League building. The
first meal was served in the ball-
room on May 6, 1929. Following
this dinner, the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre was-formally opened with
Comedy Club's initial performance
of "Granite."
The public was first admitted to
the building on May 5 for an open
reception sponsored by the officers
of the Alumni council, the League
officers, and the Regents of the
University. The entire building
was open for this occasion. It was
estimated that 4,000 visitors were
entertained in the afternoon, and
4,000 in the evening.
:Tea Dance Held in Ballroom.
During the course of the after-
noon;ttea was served to the public,
a tea dance was held in the ball-
room, and an Orchesis dance recit-
al was presented in the theatre.
The Orchesis program was repeat-
ed in the evening, and a formal
dance given in the ballroom.
Every department of the League
building was set in motion by noon
of May 7, including the cafeteria,
dining room, library, the various
lounges, and all the. rooms on the
third floor.
The League building was organ-
ized and run as an experimental
venture through the first year. The
entire management was under the
control of the Alumni board Sept.
1 to April 1 of this year. At that
time it was turned over to the Reg-
ents, who have appointed a board
a governors.
Addition Planned in Future.
The first experimental year has1
proved that the League building is
and will be a financial success. So-
cially, it has been used to over-ca-
pacity; the manager is frequently
obliged to turn away private par-
ties. With financial independence
already realized, and more than I
capacity use of the building indi-
cated in the first year, plans for an
addition on the north side will be
warranted in the near future. !
Elections for next year's Junior
Girls' Play will be held at 4 o'clock
tomorrow in the Lydia Mendelssohn1
theatre. The elective offices are
general chairman, assistant chair-
man, business manager, and prop-
erty chairman. The other positions
are appointed by the elected mem-
Three sophomore women will
make up the committee which is to
nominate two women for each of
the positions: Katherine Ferrin,
and Elizabeth Louden, sophomore

of the League, and Betty Healy.'
The nominations made by this
group will be submitted to the
members of the sophomore class
for election at the meeting tomor-
In Chiapas, Mexico a boarding
