ing to Robert A. I Saltzstein, '34,
The new lower prices range from
five per cent to 15 per cent below

and include rates in the main din-
ing room, the Taproom, the bowling
alleys, pool and billiard parlors.
Student officers have expressed the
hope that Michigan men will increas-
ingly make the Union the, center for
their activities and with this end in
view are making every effort to de-
velop a program attractive to all.
Announcement of the continuance

Edward McCormick, '34, secretary.
It will be distributed as it was last
year and posted on various bulletin
boards about the campus.

All students entitled to driving li-
censes have been urged to apply for
them during Orientation Week.
These include students who are
carrying less than five hours of work

of age, those who are married, and
those who have a faculty rank of

tions to the general ban are also
made in a few other special cases.

AProblem For
Students Here
University E m pl o y m ent
Bureau Faced With Huge
Application Increase
An increase of approximately 50
per cent in the number of applica-
tions for jobs, and the possibility
that the jobs open will be less than
last year, presents a serious problem
for the University Employment Bu-
reau, it was said yesterday.
The jobs open in the campus es-
tablishments are always few in num-
ber and have generally been filled
before incoming freshmen make their
applications at the bureau. As a re-
sult most of the jobs that the bu-
reau can offer are boarding posi-
tions in various fraternities.
The great majority of fraternities
have made no arrangements for em-
ployment of students as yet, it was
said, and it is doubtful if the num-
ber of such jobs open will care for
all applicants. The bureau does not
expect fraternities to ask for board
help until Wednesday or Thursday,
and, even then, many fraternities
may employ their own m e m b e r s
rather than going to the bureau for
A condition quite similar to that of
the men's employment bureau exists
at the women's bureau in Barbour
Gymnasium. where there have been
about 300 applications for jobs thus
far. Although no records of past ap-
plications have been kept, officials at
the bureau said they knew the num-
ber this year exceeded those of the
past. Most of those applying wish
to work for their room, or for room
and board, it was said.
Health Service Partially
Open During This Week
Although all its facilities will not
be in operation, the Health Service
will be open this week and a physi-
cian will be on call for house visits.

University May
Construct Two
New Buildingfs
Regents Request Share
Of State's Funds For
Building Program
Two new University buildings, an
administration building and an ob-
servatory, may be constructed as the'
result of action taken by the Board
of Regents at a meeting held Aug-
ust 26, at which time they passed
a resolution requesting that the Uni-
versity be allowed to share in the
State of Michigan's institutional
building program under the Na-
tional Recovery Act.
The administration building is es-
timated to cost, equipped, a total of
$600,000. The observatory group,
given second preference in there-
quest, is estimated to cost, equipped,
Tentative plans and sketches for
the two units were drawn up for
submission to the state building de-
partment by designers of the Build-
ings and Grounds department, un-
der the direction of Prof. Lewis M.
Gram, director of plant extension,
and Walter M. Roth, engineer of
the Building and Grounds Depart-
ment. These have been sent to the
superintendent of the state build-
ing department by Shirley W. Smith,
Vice-President and Secretary of the
University, who has aided in the
formulation of the plans and their
The formal request calls for an
Administration Building centrally lo-
cated at the University and hous-
ing the administrative and business'
departments of the institution. "Of-
fices for the Regents, Vice-Presi-
dents, Recorder, Registrar, Invest-
ment Officer, Cashier, Dean of Stu-
dents, Dean of Women, Dean of the
Summer Session and Dean of the
Graduate School together with such
offices and working space required by
the Alumni Catalogue Office, Exten-
sion Division, a central dictaphone
station, publications storage and
mailing and the purchasing and ac-
counting departments are to be ade-
quately and conveniently housed un-
der one roof so that the Univer-
sity's business relations and its gen-
eral student activities can be quick-
ly, efficiently and economically han-
dled," according to the plans for
the project.
The structure would be located on
ground now owned by the Regents
and located near the geographical
center of the University buildings.
The building, approximately 135 feet
by 200 feet in size, would be four
stories and basement in height with
a reinforced-concrete frame, brick

Kraus, Hopkins, Lewis To
Fill Important Positions
In Administration
New Plan Includes
Committee Of Seven
Literary College Will Be
Governed By Executive
Group Appointed
Three new University adminstra-
tors for important units were named
by the Board of Regents at last
month's meeting held at the summer
home of President Alexander G.
Ruthven in Frankfort.
Dr. Edward H. Kraus becomes
dean of the literary college, succeed-
ing the late Dean John R. Effinger;
Prof. Louis A. Hopkins was named
Director of the Summer Session to
succeec Dean Kraus; and Prof.
Howard B. Lewis was appointed to
head the College of Pharmacy, filling
another of the positions formerly
held by Dean Kraus.
All of the (appointments took
effect immediately and the new offi-
cials have been actively engaged at,
their positions since that time. In
each case the appointments were pro-
motions, the Regents having taken
men from the present staffs rather
than going outside the University.
Exectutive Committees Formed
Creation of executive committees
in both the literary college and the
Summer Session has been regarded
as a significant innovation. These
bodies will assist in the administra-
tion of the units. In the literary col-
lege the step is a continuance of the
then temporary machinery set up
upon the death of Dean Effinger, to
handle the affairs of the unit until
a new dean had been chosen.
Dean Kraus headed that commit-
tee, which then consisted of five
men and will now be increased to
seven, during the period of readjust-
ment necessitated by the announce-
ment of the reduced budget. The
group which willnow continue as an
executive committee is one part of
the general reorganization planned
for some time for the literary college.-
This executive committee will be
composed of the dean of the literary
college and six other members
appointed by the Regents for three
year terms. Continuity will be
insured by the terms being staggered
so that two new members will be
selected each year.
Successive Terms Banned
A feature of the plan is that
members cannot be reappointed to
the committee immediately upon the
expiration of their terms, officials
intending to thus insure rotation of
membership and wider scattering of
responsibility through the faculty
One other change made by the
Regents was the altering of titles
applied to two of the posts filled.
The new head of the Summer Session
will be designated by the title "Direc-
tor" in the future, instead of "Dean,"
as has been the practice previously.
The other change is in the title of
Professor Lewis, who will be head of
the College of Pharmacy rather than
its dean.

Plans for the coming year's work
of the Undergraduate Council, stu-
dent governing body formed last
year after the complete disintegra-
tion of the Student Council, will be

ization to be held at 7:30 p. m.

President's Greeting
On behalf of your teachers, and
on behalf, also, of the people of
the State of Michigan who have
willed that this University should
exist and who have maintained
it for more than a century, I wel-
come back to the campus the stu-
dents who have been with us be-
fore, and greet as well thosewho
are coming here for the first time.
On you falls the duty of carry.
ing forward the time-honored tra.-
ditions of. Michigan for another
year and of sustaining the reputa-
tion which our institution has
built for decades past upon the
energy, loyalty, and keenness of
its students and the genius of the
famous scholars of its faculty.
The hardship which economic
distress has brought upon our
country has made the task of
those who compose the Univer-
sity at present no less rigorous
than that of its founders.
Michigan students, however,
have faced and met the situation
in a way which has merited the
commendation of their teachers
and the public. I am sure that
this spirit will persist and look
forward with confidence to 1933-
1934. May it bring satisfaction
and profit to each and every one
of you.
