A Glimpse Into Michigan's Future

Welcoming homecoming alumni,
T. Hawley Tapping, secretary of
the Michigan Alumni Association,
urged old grads to recapture the
spirit of their college days, and
praised homecoming as a vitaliz-
ing factor in alumni relations.
"A spontaneous growth rather
than an official University func-
tion, homecoming has come to be a
Michigan tradition." he said. "As
such it is a real indication of
alumni interest in the University."
Homecoming began in 1933, he
said, as the result of concerted
action by Michigan's fraternities.
Homecoming enables alumni to
renew relations with the Univers-
ity each year and therefore helps
to place the relationship between
the individual and his school on a
life-long rather than a transitory
basis, he Isaid. Bringing together
alumni scattered throughout the
nation, it is a coordinating force
in alumni affairs.
Building, honor house for junior and
senior women. Across South Univer-
sity Ave. is the William Clements Li-
brary of American History.
The complete block across from the
Clements Library is occupied by the
Law Quadrangle, residence of law
students, the Law Library and
Hutchins Hall.
Again coming to the Union, one
finds opposite it Alumni Memorial
Hall, home of the Alumni Association
and art galleries. On the main cam-
pus is Angell Hall, headquarters ofS
University officers and the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts; as
well as old University Hall, now used
for administrative offices. Oldest
building on campus is Mason Hall,
which adjoins University Hall. On
the diagonal in the center of the
campus are Haven Hall, history and
journalism quarters; and the Na-
tural Science and Chemistry build-
ings. ,

What have the alumni been doing
since last Homecoming Day? Plenty!
Reviewing the year, three major re-
unions are seen: the Dental Home-
coming, the Medical School Reunion,
and the Forestry School Anniversary.l
Work on various Ten-Year program;
projects went on all over the country.i
Scholarships and loan funds were
financed. New-directors were elect-
ed to the Board and Emeritus Club3
members received new distinction.
Add to that the doings of individual
alumni and alumnae near and far
and the tale would be much too long
to tell. Here it is only possible to
briefly review the activities of the
organized alumni groups.

coming Feb. 9. A one day event, the
