Motion Picture Star, Broth-
er Of Mary, SuccumbsI
PARIS, Jan. 4. - P) - Jack Pick-
ford, brother of Mary Pickford and
himself a motion picture actor, died
in the American hospital here Tues-
He had been in the hospital since
Oct. 14 after suffering a breakdown.f
le was 36 years old.
Dr. Edmund. L. Gros, who attended
him, stated that death resulted from
multipte neuritis which finally af-
fected the brain center."
Mary Pickford, who had been kept
informed of her brother's condition
by telephone, had expressed a desire
to come from Hollywood to be with,
him, but Dr. Gros told her she could
not arrive in time.
For several years, starting with his
marriage to Olive Thomas in 1917,
Jack Pickford kept himself well be-
fore the public gaze--and not alto-
gether through his importance as a
motion picture actor. His exploits
outside the studio won him almost
as much space as his famous sister,
Mary, was obtaining through her,
professional popularity as a movie'
Jack first became an iinportait
figure to the public when he mar-
ried Olive Duffy, known on the stage
and screen as Olive Thomas. Previ-
otis to that he had been little more
than an extra in the studios, but he
was well known because of his rela-
tionship to Mary Pickford.
Many recall the shocking details
in connection with Miss Thomas'
death in Paris in 1920. One evening
the two went to Montmarte, center
of night revels. After this place closed
Miss Thomas and her friends toured
in taxis to other resorts of question-
able reputation. When she returned
to the hotel she and Pickford quar-
-reled. She took poison and died.
-In 1922, Pickford married Marilyn
Miller, Ziegfeld musical comedy star,
who a few months after the OliveI
Thomas trigedy had lost her hus-
band, Frank Carter, in an automobile
accident. Miss Miller and Pickford
were divorced in 1927.
Four Pledges Initiated
Into Speech Society
An initiation service was conducted
last night by Zeta Phi Eta, women's
speech society, for four pledges. The
new members arc Laurabelle Wilson,
Grad., Reta Peterson, '35, Virginia
Frink, '35, and Edna Darby, '34.
Beginning tomorrow night free
tickets for the following week-end
will be distributed by the League to
the patrons of its regular Friday and
Saturday night dances.
Each student as he buys his ticket
for the dance will be given a stub
bearing the number of the ticket. As
he enters the dance floor he will give
the ticket to the doorman and re-
tain the stub. Five ticket numbers
at each of the week-end dances will
be selected and the winning numbers
published the following week in The
Daily. Men holding"winningnum-
bei stubs may call at the League desk
with the stubs and will be given tick-
ets for either of the dances for the

to Miss Ethel McCormick, social di-
rector of ne League, is that the
drawing is secret and the wiing
gentlemen will not be obligated to
take the same young ladies to the
Another new feature at the League
this week is the free dances in the
grill in both the afternoon and eve-
ning, Music will be furnshed by Al
Cowan's five-piece band. The evening
dances will last as late as any stu-
dents stay, Miss McCormick said. The
dances in the grill will be given in
the eventing on Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thursday and in the afternoons
music will be furnished every Week-
,,day except Monday and Saturday.

Retimrs From Persia

Louis Mountbatten has rejoined her
husband here after an adventurous
journey to Persia and the Middle
East. Accompanied by the Marchio-

About 10,000 miles were covered
by airplane and 4,000 by automobile
in three months. The only mishap,
according to Lady Louis, was one
puncture during a desert trip. A Per-

tire. They overcame language dill-

Housekeeping has in fact become
something of a mania with her since
she left her native India and emi-

Her obsession for cleanliness and an
unobstructed view at spawning time
causes her to tear into shreds any

the eggs are hatched.

Construction of an office to the
President's Residence will be com-
pleted within a few days, it is expect-
ed. The new one-room office will be
used by President Ruthven for his
personal work,- and no University of-
ficial work now centering in Univer-
sity Hall offices, will be transferred
to the new office.
SThis is not the first addition the

or classroom work.
Who the architect of those four
buildings was remains a mystery
even today. The early papers make
some mention of Alexander Davis.
the New York architect whose Gothic
design for the Universitys first class-
oom building gave so much ioy to
the Ann Arbor townspeople, but it
is generally doubted if he was the
designer. There is mention, too, of an
mnnamed New Haven architect, but
it is not proven that this man was
the architect. It is noticeable, how-
ever, that the building as it was
when first- erected bore a clear re-
3emblance to New England homes.
No matter who was the architect,
Tssgc Thompson of Ann Arbor was
he superintendent of construction,
nd the actual-constructor was Has-
'ier Lum. He agreed to carry out the
flan for four buildings by putting
up two at a rate of $7,450 each and
$6,001 each for the other two. Mr.
Thompson's job of superintendent
was worth $1,000 a year, but for
only a very short time, for the bord
thought that this was an unneces-
,ary expenditure of money and soon
lropped Mr.. Thompson.
When the buildings were complet-
ed in 1840, two on the north side and
two. on the south side of the cam-
ous, the Regents reported that the

Addition in 1864
The first substantial addition oc-
curred in 1864, when a one story
kitchen wing was added. It continued
in that condition except for some
minor improvements until 1801 and
the erection of the library on the
west. side. This library was designed
by E. W. Arnold of Battle Creek. The
last sizeable addition before the pres-
ent one. came in 1920, upon the inau-
guration of President Marion L. Bur-
ton. At that time the east side of the
edifice, including, a sun narlor, a
room, and a sleeping porch, was
built. The garage was also erected

original design of the house was
changed considerably. Yet, viewed
from the front, the house as it was
