Lawyers Club Architecture Follows
®Engls.h InnAndUniversityFaue

Even as the gift of the estate of
the late Horace Rackham will real-
ize many of the dreams of the Grad-
uate School, the University's newest
completed unit, the Law Quadrangle
has realized dreams of the Law
School and of William W. Cook,
whose gift made the quadrangle and
other University buildings possible.
With the opening of Hutchins Hall
in 1933 the group of buildings was
completed. The plans for the quad-
rangle were carefully formulated
about a decade ago by Mr. Cook, ad-
vised and assisted by Dean Bates of
the Law School and the late Presi-
dent Hutchins.
The buildings were not erected in
accord with the fiats of any one
period or style of architecture, but
rather were designed to embody the
best features of the old English Inns

of Court with those of the Oxford and

composing the quadrangle are the
Lawyers Club, the John P. Cook
Dormitory, the William W. Cook Leg-
al Research Building, and Hutchins
Style Is Elizabethan,
The general style of the Lawyers
Club is Elizabethan, a transitional
style embodying something of the
features of the Gothic and of the
Renaissance periods. The dining
hall, which is essentially Gothic, re-
sembles closely the chapel at Eton
college and the one at King's College,
Cambridge. The ceiling is carved
from old oak ship timbers and at
either end of each of the nine main
trusses which support the beams is a
carved figure, many of them the
heads of eminent jurists such as
Coke, Blackstone, Marshall, and
The dormitory part of the club ex-
tending along South University Ave-
nue is arranged in the English college
apartment style with separate en-
trances to the sections, as they are
called. The tower is especially at-
tractive for its ornate stone work
and,tbecause 0f its striking appear-
ance, has become something of a
landmark on the campus.
Towers Are 90 Feet High,
The exterior of the Legal Researchs
Building, in which the donor was
most keenly interested, follows the
same general style as the others in
the quadrangle, although it is more
emphatically Gothic than any of
them. Four square towers rise from
the four corners of the building to a
height of about 90 feet. Each is
capped by four short Gothic spires
and around the tops are the coats of
arms of the 48 states carved in white
limestone. On the north face of one
of the north towers is the great seal
of the University of Michigan and
on the other north tower are gilded
figures forming the face of a clock.
The various buildings forming the
quadrangle are all connected by a
series of walks made of heavy irregu-
lar flag stones embedded in concrete.
Along these walks elm trees and
various shrubs have been planted,
giving to the buildings an air of age
and dignity in keeping with the
donor's plan.
Cook Gives $10,000,000
Mr. Cook, who made one of the
largest single gifts ever received by
an educational institution, gave the
University more than $10,000,000,
and, because not all of it has been
used for the Law School, the balance
has gone for the construction of a
girls' dormitory, named in honor of t
the donor's mother, Martha W. Cook,
and for the endowment of research
The remaining funds, according to
the stipulations of Mr. Cook's will,
may be used at the discretion of the
University Board of Regents and of-
ficials in building up the law depart-
ment, either in the form of scholar-
ships, buildings, or to supplement the
salaries of professors in order that
the school will continue to attract

the leading members of the law pro-
The Law School is, with one pos-
sible exception, the only institution
in the country where in one closely
connected unit all the physical equip-
ment for carrying on an advanced
professional study is centered. With-
in two blocks are located all the dor-
mitories, class rooms, offices, librar-
ies, commons and recreational facili-
ties for 300 men.
Mr, Cook, who amassed the largest
portion of his fortune through suc-
cessful investments when he was
practicing law in New York City, was
considered by many of his close
friends to be an unusually eccentric
individual. Although the law
quadrangle in Ann Arbor represent-
ed the prime achievement of his life,
he never returned to see the buldings
which his generous gifts. had made
It had always been his wish that
there should be nothing in the nature
of a memorial to him in the quad-
rangle, but largely at the insistence
of the University, the trustees were
prevailed upon to consent toa slight
alteration in the plans so that above
the delivery desk in the main read-
ing room of the library are two fig-
ures symbolic of learning with the
simple inscription:
"The buildings forming this law
school quadrangle together with the
supporting endowment are the gift
of William W. Cook of the Class of
1882. To his memory the University
erects this tablet."

Average Radio
In Use over
4 Hours Daily
Interesting Facts About
Radio Public Brought
To LightInSurvey
Mr. and Mrs. John Citizen keep
their radio going an average of 4
hours and 20 minutes every day, Dr.
Frank N. Stanton of Ohio State Uni-
versity told members of the American
Psychological Association during
their recent convention in Ann Ar-
bor. These figures and other in-
teresting facts about the radio public
came to light as the result of a survey
Dr. Stanton is conducting in and
about Columbus, O.
His modus operandi, Dr. Stanton
confided to the psychologists, con-
sists of installing in home radios a
mechanism which, the owners are in-
formed, records the amount of cur-
rent used by the radio. Actually, the
machine records the use of the radio
at 30-second intervals over a period
as long as six weeks.
Sunday Popular With Listeners
A week is the usual period of
recordings, however, and at the con-
clusion of that time Dr. Stanton calls
for his machine and interviews tIhe
radio owners about their use of the
radio the day before.
Replies in about 50 test cases
showed that while most owners knew
approximately how long the radio
had been in use during the preceding
day, only about a third of them could
account for that period by identify-
ing the programs heard either by
sponsor's name, product name, or the
performers' names.
Sunday, Dr. Stanton's readings
showed, was by far the heaviest lis-
tening day, with the average radio
turned on for 5 hours and 35 min-
utes, mostly in the evening. Tuesday
was second in the standings, and Sat
urday showed the least use for radios.
Prefer News Broadcasts
"Of course, this was a spring sur-
vey, and Saturday will probably move
up in the list this fall when foot-
ball broadcasts begin," Dr. Stanton
pointed out.
Dr. Stanton has also been conduct-
ing a second survey by questionnaire,
designed to find out the nature of
the radio public's desires. The ques-
tionnaires were widely distributed
near Columbus, and were returned by
mail, unsigned.
What programs do Mr. and Mrs.
Citizen prefer? Well, they both want
to listen to news broadcasts, and give
them first place on their lists of
choices. Comedy rates second, drama
third, popular music fourth, and
variety and classical music tied for
Men Vote For Sort Broadcasts
If you take Mr. John Citizen's
word for it, and leave the wife out,
comedy comes second, and sports
third, but with Mrs. Citizen at the
dials, the second choice will be drama
and after that classical music.
Dr. Stanton's survey also attempted
to determine just what the radio lis-
tener does while he's listening. Men
he found, confine themselves to three
activities: just plain listening, and
second, a tie for reading and eating
-but no sleeping. Women also go
in for unadulterated listening, but al-
so tune in on the radio while sewing,
cleaning house, eating, ironing, or
resting in just that order.
Some of the other items in Dr.
Stanton's check list were writing,
dancing, bathing, studying, driving,
and lying in bed, but the results were
meager. Automobile listening didn't

show up as well as he had expected.
Several of his Ohio State psychology
classes took the test last spring, and
he claims to have "flunked" those
who admitted studying with the radio
