Growing Pains' Of University
Described In Bulletin Of 1904
During the "growing pains" of the tween ladies and gentlemen every-
University, much discussion was lev- where, and it rarely occurs to a Uni-
elled at the comparative advantages versity faculty member or student

of establishing the University in a
large city or small town.
In addition to the best offer of the'
residents of Ann Arbor, a University
bulletin of the year 1904, in crystal-.
lizing/ various arguments of this con-
ti oversy, points out that every bene-
fit which a large city can offer is
furnished in Ann Arbor with the
single exception of numerous the-
atres "which are at least as liable to
prove a distraction as a benefit."
Opportunities Differ
The little University Bulletin of
1904 makes one realize the sharp con-
trast in opportunities offered to the
student then and now. The number
of schools has almost doubled in the
past two decades, for there are 13
schools at present while at that time
the University boasted only 7 dis-
tinct departments. The department
of Literature, Science and the Arts
is the oldest. The bulletin states that
"There is professional value in many
subjects studied in this department.
The prospective teacher finds not
only the subject he will teach, but
instruction in how to teach it. The
University of Michigan was the first
to establish a professorship in the
science and the art of teaching. The
faculty of Pedagogy now numbers
three professors."
There were just as many student
publications during 1904 as can be
found at the present time. The
Michiganensian, annual record, The.
Technic, engineering annual, and
The Michigan Daily, every day but
Monday, were well established by
that, time. The Inlander took the.
place of Contemporary, and The
Wrinkle, humorous semi-monthly
magazine, was published in place of
the Gargoyle.
Activities Were Many
Almost as many social and extra-
curricular groups were occupying the
students extra time then as now. The
University Band, University Glee
Club, Banjo and Mandolin Clubs,
Democratic Club, Republican Club,
Masonic Club and Prohibition Club,
are only a few of the long list of
activities. Michigamua and Vulcans
also held their regular meetings and
startled the town with wierd initia-
There was no beautiful League
building for women in 1904; but the
women carried on all their activities
in the then new Barbour Gymnasium.
It was open for any University func-
tion, such as class or organization
socials or hops. According to the
booklet, "The Womens' Dean is al-
ways present at these gatherings and
the closing hour is fixed at twelve,
o'clock." The relations between the
Dean and the students, then as now,
were close and friendly.
Faculty Attitude Changed
In the 30 years that had passed
since the first women were admitted
in '71, a profound change had come
over the faculty in their attitude
toward women. From their dubious
stand at the beginning they had
come to the point where they stated,
"The two sexes meet on the same
terms of courtesy that obtain be-

that there is any such thing as the
problem of co-education."
Perhaps the greatest difference was
in the expenses of these early stu-
dents as compared with present day
costs. The average cost in 1904 was
estimated at $370 per year for fees,
board and room, clothing, books and
all expenses. Board ordinarily ran
from $2 to $3.50 per week, with an
average of from $2.50 to $3. Accord-
ing to the bulletin "Furnished rooms
vary in cost from $.50 to $2.50 for
each student."




Recent activities of sororities and
fraternities include pledgings, and
initiation. Officers were also chosen
by several houses for next year.
