Moving Of Quarry Drug
And Moe Barber Shop
No longer will students trek up:
North University avenue to the Quar-
ry Drug building when they want a
haircut from the dean of Ann Ar-
bor's barbers, George Moe-instead
they will cross State St. and enter
the basement of the new Quarry Drug
Store, on S. State facing North1
For, the Quarry's old building has
been torn down and a new building,
to be completed Nov. 15 is being con-
structed by the S. S. Kresge Co.
The Quarry, putting in a new
front where the Michig Inn used to
be, will be completed and have its
grand opening sometime within thel
However, George Moe has opened
his barber shop in the basement of'
the Quarry, and is ready to serve
studentseof Michigan as he has for'
many decades.
On Maynard St., just north of the
intersection of William St., on the
east side of the street, two new stores
are being constructed in the corner
building. One will be occupied by a
linen shop, and a jewelry store will.
be located in the other.
The Michigan Wolverine, the Stp-
dent Association's cooperative eating
club, has moved across the street, and
will now serve meals in the place
formerly occupied by Chubb's res-
tuarant.The Wolverine was form-
erly located in Lane Hall.

George Pray Tells Of Student
Life At University In Year 1845

went to breakfast Mrs. G. told me
that a young lady had left some-
thing for the good of my health.
What can it be? thought I. I re-
ceived the bundle, opened it and 1o!
a fine lot of strawberries-picked no
doubt last evening by some fair one
of the strawberry party-by whom I
could not find out. We recited for
the first time in chemistry. I like it
well thus far. My friends were in
town today. I received from home,
besides a lot of clothes, a dozen fine
apples. What can bring up fond
recollections of home and all its
pleasures like some such little gift as
this. Prof. Whiting is sick so that
again we have but one recitation a
day. I spent the afternoon reading
"The Last Days of Pompeii."
June 13th. Today I received a war-
rant from Capt. Spalding making me
2nd Sergeant. I was also warned to
be and appear armed and equipped
as the law directs at an officer drill
to be had on the 18, 19 and 20 instant
and at a general muster on the 24th

instant. I also received orders to
warn all persons liable to do military
duty in a certain beat. A curse on
the militia system! Four days train
and one of warning are too bad. But
I can not get rid of it. The Captain
won't let me off and I have offered
to sell my commission at the low price
of 6 pence but no one seems inclined
to enter the service.
June 17th. This morning I started
for Ann Arbor and reached the
University about 9 o'clock. I tried to
get my chemistry lesson but found it
almost impossible to read it over it is
so dry and uninviting. At noon I
succeeded in warning a goodly num-
ber of the Militia by catching them
at their dinner. Almost everyone has
some long story to tell me about not
-being liable. But I do not pay any
attention to that. I put down their
names and then let them do as they
please. In the afternoon I got my
lesson in McIlvain's "Evidences"
which I like well. In the evening I
took a walk with Buchanan and had
quite a chat. He says that my class-

Revelli Predicts Band Increase,
But Still Seeks Freshman Tryouts

Military Science
Courses Lead To
2nd Lieutenancy
Military science courses in the
University which lead to a second
lieutenancy in*- the United States
Army can be taken by students in
conjunction with the program of the
Michigan unit of the Reserve Officers
Training Corps.
Freshmen who wish to gain officer
standing in the R.O.T.C. mustgenroll
the first semester they, are in atten-
dance at the University. Twelve
hours of military training are al-
lowed toward graduation, credit being
given at the rate of one hour each
semester for the first two years and
two hours each semester for the last
two years. The complete training
takes eight semesters or four years.
The organization of the unit fol-
lows regular military tables, except-
ing that most divisions of the regi-
ment are smaller than normal.


Meeting Called For Friday
In Union; Players Will
Travel To Northwestern
The University of Michigan Varsity
Concert Band, which numbered 110
last year, will have at least 125 mem-
bers this ,year, according to Prof.
William D. Revelli of the Schoolrof
Music, director of the band.
"Every man playing percussion or
wind instruments is invited to try
out," Professor Revelli said, "as we
are going to have plenty of room for
new members. Freshmen are invit-
A new feature this' year, Professor
Revelli disclosed, will be that the
band is going to have two twirlers
besides the drum major. "Incidental-
ly," he pointed out, 'the drum major
has not yet been picked and freshmen
may try out for this position also."
Despite the fact that he will have
almost four times as many lettermen
returning as Coach Kipke has for
his football team, Professor Revelli
stated that the number of new mem-
bers to be assimilated from the fresh-
man class is practically unlimited.
Band tryouts will be held from 9
a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. today
through Friday. They are to be held
at Morris Hall, which is situated at
East Jefferson and State streets. A
meeting is to be held at 7:30 p.m.
Friday in the Michigan Union.
Band practices will be dismissed
earlier this year, .too, Professor Re-

- -v
velli said. They will start at 4:30
and end at 5:45 p.m.
As for trips, the band will definite-
ly go to the Northwestern football
game Oct. 9 at Dyche Stadium in
Evanston, Herbert G. Watkins, fac-
ulty business manager of the bandI
disclosed. Last year the band went
to Philadelphia and it may possibly
go this year.
Donn Chown, '38SM, is the student
band business manager this year.
Union Registration
Registration of new students at the
Union will begin early this week, ac-
cording to the Executive Council.
A committee of the Union will be
stationed in the student offices, and
freshman may take their tuition re-'
ceipts to these committee as soon
as they have completed registration.
Another service of the Union this
fall is to compile a temporary stu-
dent directory which may be used to
locate students until the publication
of the regular directory.
Early in May Ann Arbor will be
offered four days of music by well-
known American and European ar-
tists in the traditional May Festival
