The Corner Of State And North U.

-65 Years Ago

Along about in 1870, just before the University Hall was built, this old Law Building stood alone on the
corner of North University and South State streets. About 25 years ago, the Law Building was remodeled and
replaced by what is now Haven Hall. Notice that State Street was a two-way boulevard, and observe the
famed picket fence surrounding the campus. Parts of University Hall, which was built in 1871-73, and fin-
ished the year of the inauguration of President Angell, now stand in the remodeled form in the rear of
Angell Hall.

the street, where they dissected it.
They would have been content, they
said, to have left the theater other-

ager called the police and fire de-
This really marked the beginning
of a riot. The policemen, some stout
and not as fleet as the students, fared
badly. They lost their helmets, their
coats, and a moral conflict. The fire-
men fared worse. Bringing out their
powerful hose to play upon the riot-
ing students, the firemen were so un-
fortunate as to lose the control of
their weapon, which was seized by the
students and used with telling effect
upon the outwitted fire-fighters. The
hose finally was cut and the pieces
carted home for souvenirs.
"But the settlement was bitter,"
reminisces Mr. Slater. "Members of
the student body circulated among
faculty and business men with col-
lection pails to gather enough money
to keep the arrested undergraduates
from prison."
Football scoires from -the away
games were shouted out to the mob
of students from a second story win-

Days As Student
At University

until the grounds reached their pres-
ent size.
Baird said that he remembered
the times when the admission to foot-
ball games was 50 cents and when
the profits of $300 on a single game
were considered excellent.
It was during the regime of Baird
that Fielding H. Yost and Keene
Fitzpatrick, the first trainer ever
hired by Michigan, were brought to
Michigan. In regard to the hiring
of Yost, Baird said, "I remember one
day receiving a letter from "G" Huff
of the University of Illinois saying
that there was a young fellow named
Yost who seemed to be a fair football
coach. So I wrote Fielding and by
return express came a 50-pound scrap I
book, filled with clippings of his
prowess and crammed with glowing
testimonials from University Chan-
cellors, Presidents, and Regents." He
got the job.
When asked if he had ever en-
visioned the present gigantic athletic
department, Baird said that he never
in his early times here believed it
would reach the "vastness and great-
ness" that it now has.
After he had closed his discussion
of the "good old days," as he termed
them, Mr. Baird said that he had
presented the carillon with the idea
of "giving pleasure to people of Ann
Arbor and to the students. Also,"
he said, "I gave it in order to add
to the attractiveness of the Univer-

dow of the State Street bookshop, Mr.
Slater particularly remembers be-
cause it was he who had to run with
the telegrams from the telegraph
office to the bookshop.
Students in those days had to go
down to the postoffice to get their
mail each day, and each day there
was a riot all over again just before
the distribution began.
Many of the old alumni back in
town will remember "Old Doc" Nag-
ley, thinks Mr. Slater. He was fa-
mous among students for his job,
which was to carry the cadavers in
the medical school downstairs to the
pickling vat. In those days, the med-
ical laboratory was located about
where the new engineering building
now stands.
Fraternities in those days were
feeble frame structures, made over
from rooming houses and private res-
idences, and only a small percentage
of the more affluent students were
members, according to Mr. Slater.
Alubum Obtained
The album from which Mr. Slater
secured the old pictures pf the cam-
pus was collected by his grandmother,
Mrs. Martha Sheehan, who was the
donor of the rock which stands on
the northwest corner of the campus
as a memorial to the class of 1862.
It was hauled, according to a news-
paper report, from the backyard of
Mrs. Sheehan's home by a team of
16 white horses, and was installed in
its present location in an impressive
ceremonyin which President Tappan

Plans Might Forbid
Scarlet Capes; God
Forbid Scarlet Face
Penn's band marched between
halves in their brilliant red and
blue capes yesterday, but that wasn't
what they intended to do.
To conform with Michigan's prac-
tice, they had planned to discard!
the capes, and were almost in theI
process of doing so until the earnest
voice of a piccolo player was raised
in protest.
His tale was so pitiful, indeed, that
the rest of the band could not but
heed the plea. And so they swung
out on the field with red and blue
capes flowing.
The piccolo player had ripped his

Police Experiment To Find A
Perfect Test Of Drunkenness

Walking the chalk-line as a police
court test for drunkenness would
seem to be on its way out.
That conclusion, among others, was
reached at the joint convention in
Louisville, Ky., of the National Safe-
ty Congress and the Institute of Traf-
fic Engineers, from which Prof. Rog-
er L. Morrison of the highway engi-
neering department recently returned.
In arriving at this particular con-
clusion the convention was aided by
a little skit performed for them by
seven Louisville residents.
First of all, each of the seven was
given an innocuous appearing colored
drink. In two of these drinks'there
had previously been placed two
ounces of whiskey, and in three oth-
ers four ounces of whiskey. After
waiting for two hovrs in order to al-
low the alcohol to take full effect,
one of the recipients of the four-
ounce doses of whiskey was selected
for experimental study. For this pur-
pose the remainder of the circum-
stances under which drunken drivers
frequently find themselves were also
duplicated as nearly as possible.
And thus, When the experimentally-

drunk driver was interrogated by
what seemed to be police officials, he
indignantly replied, "Why, I'm cold
sober, cold sober. Only had two bot-
tles of beer, anyway." Then he was
politely asked to demonstrate his
sobriety by walking a chalk line. This
he managed to perform successfully
with a little staggering.
Here, ordinarily, police would have
been at a loss; so one of the traffic
engineers, Dr. H. A. Heise of Mil-
waukee, stepped in. The pseudo-
drunken driver was then subjected to
tests of his blood and urine, to a
session in a reactometer (a device for
measuring the speed with which an
individual exercises control over his
car under driving conditions), to the
problem of sorting a shuffled deck of
cards, and to several tests of hand-
and-eye coordination.
