In 1935 the need became acute. All
swimming was then transferred to
the Union pool. This made the neces-
sity of a pool even more evident.
Demand Recognized In 1935
In 1935 the Women's Athletic As-j
sociation recognized the demand, by
petition of the women students, and:
since then the project has been form-

Michigan today is enjoying really remarkable values in
telephone service.
The Company's material and labor costs have increased
substantially since reductions in rates were made in 1934,
1935 and 1936. In 1934 rates for service to farmers and for
long distance service were reduced; in 1935 the long distance
night rate was made effective at 7 o'clock every night and
was extended to all day every Sunday; in 1936 further reduc-
tions were made in the rates for long distance and for various
other services and items of equipment, and the charges for
installing and moving telephones were drastically cut.
At the same time the average individual's income has
improved, and prices asked for many other items and
services have gone up.
Yet telephone service is still available at the reduced rates;
