that govern competition. Of course,
some measures are only political in
nature. I think spending by the gov-
ernment is a necessity in time of re-
covery, but otherwise it should be
limited as much as possible. As far
as government interference in private
business is concerned, I think it is
necessary to have some interference

William A. Miller, State Street Bar-
ber Shop: "I am not in sympathy
with the New Deal measures. Waste-
ful spending to buy prosperity is not
working and is not at all logical. It
is costing us and posterity too much.
The recent election shows that Mich-
igan is not favorable to the New Deal,
and I don't believe Roosevelt will do
as well with the next Congress."
Ernest Dascola, Ferry Field Shop:

of all this so-called relief money, I

advanced degree, the Master of Arts,
in 1849. Since that time, graduate
activities and the graduate student
body have grown to one cf the largest
of its kind in the country. It was not
until the erection of the Rackham
Building in 1937, however, that grad-
uate activities were actually organized
and integrated,
The first floor of the building is
elevated seven feet above the side-
walk and is reached by a broad terrace
with granite steps and flagstone pav-
ing, with planted areas at either side.
Three entrance doors of bronze and
glass open into an entrance hall, 31
by 109 feet, with a floor of green
and purple-gray slate laid in a rec-
tangular pattern. The plaster walls
are painted a Pompeian red, with
black marble base and trim. A beamed
ceiling in blue-green with stenciled
decorations in polychrome and gold
recalls the gold and bronze of the
lighting fixtures on the walls.
Doors Faced With Leather
Tables of ebonized wood and
benches of the same material with
blue-green leather cushions harmon-
ize with the three pair of blue-leath-
er, bronze-studded doors which lead,
to the lecture hall and its appz~rten-
ances. At either side of these doors
stairways extend to the upper stories

At the east side of the ouilding, the
administrative offices of the Gradu-
ate School are arranged to provide
a large waiting room for students,
the business office, record room
and staff room. The Dean's and
Assistant Dean's offices are in the
two southeast corners with the recep-
tion rooms and secretaries offices
between. On the west side of the floor
are offices and conference rooms with
the Graduate School Board room and
the Rackham Fund offices in the two
southwest corners. These rooms are
finished similar to modern office
buildings, with linoleum floors, paint-
ed plaster walls and wood doors and
trim. The two rooms have walnut-
paneled walls and are carpeted.
Lecture Hall Seats 1,200
The lecture hall is a semi-circular
room 100 feet deep and 29 feet high,
containing a lecture platform on the
north and. an open arcade on the
south, which gives access to six radi-
ating aisles serving approximately
1,200 seats. The semi-circular form
was adopted in preference to the
ordinary theatre-shaped auditorium
because of/ the use to which the room
will be put, and the seats and aisles
have been arranged in a spacious
manner, permitting movement to and
from the seats without requiring the
occupants to rise.


Three pairsof doors on the south
side of the room open into a lobby
which intervenes between this large
room and the entrance hall, and at
either end of this lobby are retiring
rooms for men and women. At the
northeast and northwest corners are
emergency exits admitting to the two
north entrance halls.
The elevated lecture platform at
the center of the north wall provides
a speaker's stand, seats for 18, stair-
ways to a robing room below, as well
as steps to the floor of the lecture
hall and sound-control pit. Onr the
wall above, a motion-picture screen,
1 covered with draperies, is operated
from the picture booth, wherein pro-
vision has been made for electrical
amplification of the lectures, recep-
tion and transmission of radio pro-
grams, sound on film, and record re-
production, and also space for tele-
vision and microscopic projection.
Ceilnig Decorated In Gold
The color scheme of this room be-
gins with a dark blue carpet under
the terra-cotta velour ,in the fully-
upholstered theatre seats. The walls
of terra-cotta red have ebonized wood
trim and blue-leather doors with blue
black stenciled decorations above the
base and gold and polychrome in the
pilaster caps and cornice. A flat
ceiling of lighter blue has a pattern
of overlapping radiating circular
bands in gold and polychrome, which
increase in richness of color and de-
tail as they center over the speaker's
The lighting of the room is unusu-
al in that the customary chandeliers
have been replaced by a series of
small openings in the ceiling which
permits cones of light to spread over
the audience, providing splendid light
for note-taking and discussion from
the floor.
