One would scarcely imagine that these chorines are not only men in disguise but some of the roughest
and readiest speciments of young American manhood. They are cadets at West Point who are rehearsing
for their annual musical show. This year's production is entitled "On the Level" and is the last fling of
this particular group of future generals before they take over the serious task of Protecting their country.

Michigan Alumni Prominent In
Architecture And Elngineering

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourthj
of a series of articles on distinguished
M\ichigan alumni.
Some of the most impressive and
extraordinary feats of engineering
and architecture have been planned
and executed by graduates of Uni-
versity technical colleges. Not only
that, but a number of their more
noted accomplishments have been
additions to the campus.
James Baird, '99E, was a Varsity
football captain before his gradua-'
tion. The Lawyers' Quadrangle, prob-
ably one of the most beautiful re-
productions of English Gothic archi-
tecture in America, was built by him.
He is also noted as the builder of the
Lincoln Memorial and the Legal Re-
search Building in Washington, the
Arlington Memorial Amphitheatre,
and various other capital and uni-
versity buildings in the country.
The new stadium was designed by
a Michigan alumnus. Bernard L.
Green, '91E, planned the project. He
has also built the Yankee Stadium
in New York, more than half the

To (ve Easter
Services Here
Dr. Sidney S. Robbins, former pres-
ident of the Ann Arbor Ministerial
association and president of the Ann
Arbor Rotary Club, will return to
Ann Arbor this Sunday to give the
Easter services at the Unitarian
Church. Dr. Robbins is well known to
Ann Arbor as a pastor of the Uni-
tarian church for nine years before
he left in 1928 to teach at St. Law-
rence University.
The Topic of his morning address
will be "Easter Faith." Sunday at
7:30 p.m. Dr. Robbins will discuss
"A Pragmatic Philosophy of Reli-
gion" at the church.
At present Dr. Robbins is a pro-
fessor of philosophy at St. Lawrence
University. His contact with Uni-
versity students and Ann Arbor resi-
dents was gained during his resi-
dence here as Unitarian minister
from 1919 to 1928.

and the University of West Virginia.
Irving K. Pond, '79E, is the archi-
tect of the Union. Over 70 years old,
Mr. Pond is as proud of his acrobatic
feats and agility in executing back-
flips as for his work in designing
Hull House and the Commons in Chi-
cago, and more recently, the Women's
League building here.
During the war Ernest Conrad,
'90E, supervised the construction of
722 submarine chasers for the Allies,
and built 500 eighty-footers for the
British government in record time.
John D. Akerman, '25E, has gained
national recognition for designing
airplanes. He was a member of the
Imperial Russian Air Forces, until
the Revolution. Driven from Rus-
sia, he landed in United States in
1918, penniless and unable to speak
a word of English. In 12 years he

advises Wordsworth. Now that spring

If you feel like a stroll across the

a dress of neutral shade set offf by
a gay plaid cape or a dark suit with
plaid trimmings is appropriate. A
breton hat with its turned up brim
and shoes of rough grain and built-

the outfit.
Or if you are more conservative in
your tastes select a swagger suit with
a matching small brimmed hat. The
