University Hall Auditorium Has
History Of Many Famous Events

Once the scene of many gala Uni-
versity functions, as Commencement
exercises, the May Festival, and
prominent lectures, the large audito-
rium on the second floor of Uni-
versity Hall, which at ,the time of its
building was the largest of its kind
in the country, has been in disuse
now for 21 years.
Twenty-nine years after Mason
Hall was built in 1842, the Regents
decided that some connecting link
was needed between this building and
South Wing. They succeeded in per-
suading the State to grant the neces-
sary funds to build University Hall,
the main purpose of which was to
provide the University, with a total
registration of 1,000 students at that
time, with an auditorium.
Completed in 1873
The building was completed in 18731
and the auditorium was immediately
used for the various events which
the University sponsored. They were
the same as are now heard and seen
in Hill Auditorium: May Festivals,
concerts, and lectures. Many distin-
guished people have appeared on the
stage including several former presi-
dents of the United States, according
to Wilbur B. Shaw, director of Alum-
ni relations, who has written a his-
tory of the University.
When, in 1910, it was seen that
the large crowds attending events in
the auditorium could no longer be
accommodated safely, plans for Hill
l Auditorium were considered and on
the completion of the building in 1913
the old auditorium was closed. Since
that time it has scarcely been used,
although a few Play Production of-I

ferings have been given there. The
stage, like the one in Hill Auditorium,
is not adapted to dramatic presenta-
Space Now Decreased
From time to time since the closing
of the auditorium when more class
rooms were needed, corners of the
room have been cut off and partitions
set up to make more space. Evidence
of these changesare still to be seen
in the slanting ceilings and devious
pathways on the second floor of Uni-
versity Hall. The slanting ceilings are
really the floor of the old gallery
which formed a huge semi-circle ex-
tending from one side of University
Hall to the other.
The organ pipes which now are a
part of the stage of Hill Auditorium
are those of the World's Columbian
organ which was brought directly
from the World's Fair of 1893 at Chi-
cago to be placed in the old audi-
Ordinance Quotation Used
Just above the organ, on the val-
ance of the stage, was painted a
quotation from the Ordinance of the
Northwest Territory, 1787. The words
of the quotation, with their initial
letters illuminated, were painted on
a background of gold. The same quo-
tation, "Religion, morality and
knowledge being necessary to good
government and the happiness of
mankind, schools and the means of
education shall forever be encour-
aged," is now carved in stone above
the columns of Angell Hall. All state
universities in the mid-west and
western parts of the country have

* Museum Post
Milton A. Troutman Given
Position In The Museum
Of Zoology
Milton A. Trautman, formerly of
the Ohio department of conservation,
has been appointed by the University
as assistant curator of the fish divis-
ion in the Museum of Zoology and
research associate in the Institute for
Fisheries Research.
Mr. Trautman is well known in his
field, having published numerous art-
icles on his surveys of streams in
Ohio, although his main interest is
the study of fisheries and fish life,
he is well known for his work on
ornithology. He carried on a 10-year
study of birds around Buckeye Lake
in Ohio, and his report on the work
is considered by authorities as one
of the best of its kind.
been developed from this motto, ac-
cording to Mr. Shaw.
The growth of the University is
seen in the contrast between the sizes
of the old auditorium and Hill Audi-
torium. Twenty-five years ago the 3,-
000 seats of the old room were all
that were necessary to accommodate
people attending such University
functions as were held, now Hill Au-
ditorium, which can hold more than
4,500 people is very often filled to

tried all possible means of destroying
Holy Scripture, but it still remains
the "best seller." Men have tried to
destroy Holy Scripture by depending
on it more than was ever intended;
men have tried to destroy it by at-
tacking its authenticity, its genuine-
ness; men have tried to destroy it
by ignoring it, treating it as if it
were of no value, but still Holy Scrip-
ture remains the world's most cher-
ished book.
There is something to Holy Scrip-
ture that the most destructive bombs
of men cannot touch, it is its Divine
origin. Being of Divine origin Holy
Scripture is a reliable teacher. And
Holy Scripture .confirms what my
reason and my heart tell me. I am
an immortal being.
Cornell Freshman Finds
Coin-Of-The-Realm Not
Good Enough For Fees
ITHACA, N. Y., March 13.-Cor-
nell's Treasurer doesn't like change.
E. F. Hazelton, a freshman in the
Cornell College of Agriculture, be-
came aware of this fact recently
when he tried to pay his tuition,
$195, in dimes, pennies and nickels.
Earlier in the week, Hazelton be-
came so irritated after waiting in
line two hours to pay his fees that,
instead of paying them as he had
intended, he applied for and received
a two day extension. After the two
days, he returned with a sack filled
with the $195, all in small change.
The treasurer made it clear to
Hazelton that there were two sides
to the situation, giving him one day
to produce the sum in more accept-
able tender. More difficulties were
encountered when the banks also re-
fused to accept so much free silver.
Hazelton took his case to a lawyer,
thinking that he might receive a can-
cellation of his debt because legal
tender had been refused. He was
disappointed again, however, by the
lawyer who explained to him that
coins above a certain amount were
no longer legal tender.
Extend Federal Aid
To Airport Projects
LANSING, MICH., March 13.-
Likelihood that communities which
obtain sufficient funds for materials
on CWA airport projects will be
given extended federal aid to care
for labor costs so that the projects
may be completed, is seen by the
State Board of Aeronautics.
A message received recently from
John S. Wynne, Chief Airport Ad-
visor of the CWA in Washington, to
the Air Board reads in part as fol-
"After May 1st a 12-months fed-
eral emergency relief will be carried
on in the various states. It is hoped
that airports may play a prominent
part in this program."
