Landscaping Of
Campus To Be
Improved Soon
Pardon Announces Plans
For New Arrangement
Of Uiversity Grounds
Plans for beautifying the campus
still further than was carried out
this summer were announced recently
by E. H. Pardon, superintendent of
the Buildings and Grounds depart-
"The landscaping job that has been
done on the center of the campus
could be improved," Mr. Pardon stat-
ed, "and I have devised some plans of
landscaping in which the general ap-
pearance of the main campus would
be somewhat like that of the Law
Club grounds. I am planning to re-
a move all the bushes and shrubbery
against the buildings so that one may
have a complete, uninterrupted view
of the campus from end to end."
Another important project, which
was conceived and begun this sum-
mer, is that of a new 27-car garage
to hold all the Buildings and Grounds
trucks. The garage, for which excava-
tion has begun, will be a modern one
consisting of two floor levels to permit
easy handling of incoming and out-
going trucks. This project, Mr. Pardon
stated, is a County Welfare job and
lately there has been some diffi-
culty in keeping the men at work for
lack of funds. After laying off work
for a week, the men began work again
last Friday.
A third and last project which is
planned for the future is that of
creating a park just east of the Uni-
versity Hospital so that visitors may
have a place to spend their leisure
time while at the hospital.
Vanguard Club
Announces End
Of Book Store
Announcement of the temporary
closing of the Student Book Exchange,
located in the library of the Unitarian
Church at State and Huron Streets,
was made yesterday by Maurice Wil-
sie, who is managing the Exchange
for the Michigan Vanguard Club.
The Exchange will continue its us-
ual business from 10:00 to 12:00
o'clock and 2:00 to 4:00 o'clock until
Thursday, when it will be open daily
from 5:00 to 6:00 o'clock for settling
accounts with students who have not
already done so. Phone connection
may be made by calling 6740.
Unless tentative plans for opening a
complete bookstore during the semes-
ter materialize, the Exchange will be
closed until early in January.
Originally organized by the Round
Table Club in 1928 with the purpose
of demonstrating the need for a Uni-
versity-operated bookstore, the E-]
change in 1930 passed into the hands
of the Michigan Socialist Club. After
two years of successful operation the
club petitioned the Board of Regents
for the establishment of a University-
operated bookstore. The petition was
When the Socialist Club passed out
of existence in 1932 the Vanguard
Club assumed control of the exchange,
and maintained a complete bookstore
at 237 N. State Street until it was
moved to its present site.
The store was moved to its present
site at the beginning of this year.

Extra Curricular Activities: On or
before Oct. 6 managers and chair-
men of extra curricular activities
should submit to the Chairman of
the Committee on Student Affairs,
Room 2, University Hall, a complete
list of all students who wish to par-
ticipate in their respective enterpris-
es, in order that their eligibility for
such activities may be checked. The
names should be presented on blank
forms to be obtained in Room 2.
J. A. Bursley, Chairman
Committee on Student Affairs
Notice: Palms, ferns and flowers
for campus use. Palms, ferns, other
decorative plants and cut flowers for
use of the campus are provided by the
Botanical Gardens to the extent that
the limited greenhouse space permits.
Other demands on the greenhouses
prevent the production of enough
ornamental plants to supply all the
demands. Many requests therefore
have to be refused. In order to save
the plants for the more appropriate
occasions, it is necessary to adhere
closely to the rule that they cannot
be supplied for purely social gather-
ings of the faculty or students, for
private offices on the campus, or for
student activities except under the
conditions defined below.
An attempt is always made to pro-
vide as well as possible for official
events; for meetings at which some
group or organization of University
officials, faculty members, or students
represents the University as host to a
University guest or visiting organi-
zation, or is performing some other
direct service to the University, such
as raising funds for one of its approv-
ed projects; for student events of an
educational nature; for public enter-
tainments for which no admission is
charged and for the various libraries
and administrative offices.J
Officers in charge of general offices,
libraries, etc., are invited to ask for
whatever decorative plants may be
necessary. Plants which become pot-
bound may be sent at any time to the
Botanical Gardens for repotting. To
insure the return of the plant to the
office from which it was sent, it is
quite necessary to attach to it securely
a label giving the name and room
number of the sender.
Because of the considerable cost of
pots, and the fact that in the past
few years so few of them have been
returned to the Botanical Gardens
when the plants they contained have
died, many flowering plants which
might have been used in campus
buildings have lately been kept in the
greenhouses and their flowers only
used. The return of pbts encourages
the sending out of plants.
Requests for the use of plants and
flowers should be made directly to
Frieda C. Blanchard, Assistant Di-
rector, preferably by telephone.

As the Michigan Dames is an or-
ganization composed solely of wives
of students and of internes, who have
the same general objective, the group
is naturally congenial. The subdivis-
ions for Drama, Art, Music, Bridge,
Book, Child and General Study offer
special interest for those so inclined
and also provide social contact for a
group not usually included in other
campus activities. There will be host-
esses at the door to greet each new-
comer and to make introductions.

Hold First Meeting
The first meeting of Sigma Rho

and lecture convincingly and with
popular appeal.
Primarily a graduate organization
Sigma Rho Tau has an undergrad-
uate membership known as the Stump

through which undergraduates may
qualify for the parent organization.
