:ollection of Dues to Commence
Tuesday, March 4, Under
Chapman's Direction.

tudents in the literary college was
Tinounced yesterday by, Stanton 1

rho said that he was explaining
he application of the dues money
n order that every senior would be'
ble both to see how class funds
re expended and to appreciate the1
ecessity of fixing dunes at $5.
Year Subscription to Alumnus.
The largest single item in the
udget of each senior's dues is a
2 appropriation which serves to
ay a year's subscription to the
lchigan Alumnus, official publi-
ation of the University Alumni
ssociation. This $2 secures the
ubscription at a special bargain
rice since the regular annual rate
s $4. Special arrangements with
. Hawley Tapping, general secre-
nary of the association, enable
enior class officers to make this
special offer.
To familiarize members of the
enior class with the contents of

ne of the best college alumni pub-
ications in the United States, Mr.

limentary copies of next week's

Perman-nt Class Secretary.I
The next item on the $5 budget
utlined by Todd is a $1 appropri-
tion to pay the expenses of the
permanent class secretary. It will
be the duty of this secretary to co-
operate with Fred Randall of the
Class Officers counsel 'with head-
quarters in Alumni Memorial hall
n maintaining close alumni con-
acts between the members of the
present senior class.
The relatively large expense of
this plan is to be entailed by the
establishment of alumni mailing
ists, through which items of class
news and of general alumni inter-
est will be mailed three times each
year to class members.
Pay for Class Day Expense.
To cover class day expenses, 50
cents will be budgeted from the $5
dues, and a like amount will be
used to partly defray expenses in-
urred by the pages in connection
with the senior section in the
Michiganensian and with the
senior pictures therein printed.
Another $1 item is designed to
cover the cost of a class memorial
and to discharee .incidental ex-
penses incurred in the various class
functions this spring.
Collection of dues will start
Tuesday, March 4, Robert C. Chap-
man, '30, will supervise collections.
Tables are to be located in Angell
hall lobby and in University hail

Only a few days are to be allotted
to collection of dues, it was an-
