(Editer's Note: This is the fourth in a,
series of articles on the history. develop-
mnent and 'activities of the Graduate
School. Today's article deals especially
with the Rackham Building, center
of graduaate activity.)
Rapidly gaining national fame as
ond of the most lavishly-appointedr
collegiate buildings in the country,
the Rackham Building, mate possible
by a gift from the Horace H. and
Mary A. Rackham Fund, has now
supplanted the Law Quadrangle as
THE Michigan scenic sight.
The principal elevation on the
south is on a direct line with the Main
Library and the space between is
being developed 'as a mall. The over-I
all dimensions, exclusive of terraces,
are 196 by 250 feet, five stories in
height. The exterior walls are of In-
diana limestone, with a granite base
coufrse, window and door frames of
aronze and a copper roof. On the
south elevation, the seven dimensions
of the Graduatae Schoolare exempli-
fied in five allegorical figures in up-
per part of the building, and in two
balcony figures on the projection
The requirements of the first two
stories were greater than those of the
upper part of the structure and this
has been frankly indicated in the
exterior design, the offset space pro-
viding terraces opening off the second
floor. In the executed design, the
mass of the building is an outgrowth
of the plan requirements, and the
details of the few architectural em-
bellishments are classic, with a slight
Grecian touch.
The dominant feature of the plan
is the lecture hall, located in the
center of the building, the presence
of which is indicated by the curved
wall on the -north side. This large
room, two stories in height, controls
the position of all other rooms in the
structure and its position opposite

the building entrance facilitates the
handling of crowds.
Around the east and west sides of
the building are provided workrooms
in 34 bays. These open off a U-shaped
corridor served by the north entrances
and connecting with the principal
entrance hall on the south side of
the story above. On this floor are also
located storage rooms, workshops and
mechanical equipment for heating
and ventilating which are served by
the University power house.
Under the lecture hall on the north
side, a covered driveway gives access
to a foyer, providing automobile ap-
proach for social occasions and park-
ing space for the administrative staff
of the School. This area is complete-
ly isolated from other parts of the
structure by fire walls and ventila-
tors, and is reached by inclined drive-
ways from East Huron St.
The workrooms, corridors and en-
trances on this fluor are finished in
a manner similar to a modern office
building. The storerooms, mechanical
equipment and covered driveway are
of exposed masonry materials.

After 8 p.m. the Pope was said to

hands and feet. Camphorated oil
also was used.
Vatican sources said the Holy Fath-
