an organization active in the affairs
of University men, familiar to all who
have known the Michigan campus
since its inception, is yet capable de-
spite this familiarity, to astound

From its three kitchens wherein
such things as the formulation and
cooking of huge vats of chocolate sy-
rup for use in its own soda bar, to
the luxurious living quarters avail-
able to visitors and residents alike,
the Union is complete. It is the boast
of its staff that 1800 activities, meet-
ings, dinners, and gatherings of all
sorts take place in the Union during
the year and that at least 5,000 men,
pass through its doors every day. To
support such activity the organization
has built itself to extremely compe-
tent proportions, both mechanically
and in its personnel.
A trip through the building re-
veals facilities unsuspected even be-
hind the busy lobbies and rooms open
to the general student body. In ad-,
dition to dwelling quarters furnished
with a complete hotel service, the
Union operates a series of dining
rooms and kitchens which cover the
building. Foremost among these is
the first floor dining room, with its
adjacent yet separate terrace. A

The local student branch of the
American Society of Mechanical En-

with a smbker tonight at 7:30 in
the Michigan Union.
Engineers of all departments are
cordially invited. The program for
the coming year will be discussed and
plans of special interest to engineers
other than mechanical will be pre-
sented. Last year's society was the
second largest student branch in the
country; this year it is hoped it will
be the largest.

there are other eating places through-
out the building.
The Union. is serviced in almost allj
of its departmentsrby complete shops.,
Among these are the bakery shop,
the carpentry shop, equipped for all
sorts of repair work, the butcher shop
and the extensive store rooms located
in the building's double basement. A
complete water-filtering system far
superseded Ann Arbor's new plant,
making the Union the only place
where pure water could be easily ob-
tained in town until last year.
In the field of entertainment of al-
most every conceivable type the Union
is well equipped to benefit student
and faculty-member alike. The swim-
ming pool, finished in 1925 and for a
time the rendezvous of the varsity
swimming team, is of regulation size
and is provided with the most modern
violet ray filtration system in the
country, according to the staff's boast.
Billiard and. ping-pong rooms, newly
constructed bowling alleys, lounges
and tap rooms provide many various
types of amusements.
Extensive quarters in the Union
tower provide space for senior so-'
cieties and top off the other benefits
of the building with a splendid view

College Graduates' Matrimonial
Chances Best, Survey Reveals


Contrary to popular belief, college
graduates are more successful in mar-
riage than grammar and high school
graduates, according to Dr. Leonard
S. Cottrell, Jr., of Cornell Universi-
ty and Prof. Ernest W. Burgess of the
University of Chicago.
This conclusion was reached after
one of the most thorough statistical
surveys on marriage ever conducted
in the United States. Using 526
couples as examples, the survey took
seven years to complete.
It was also found that longer court-
ships favored better harmony and
adjustment after marriage. Where
the courtship lasted less than a year,
there was incomplete adjustment. The
best term of wooing seems to be be-
tweenathree and five years, the in-
vestigators discovered.
Wivesswho worked before their
marriage make any necessary adjust-
ments more easily than those who
had never worked, with school teach-
ers ranking highest in adjustment.
Professional men make the best hus-
bands, and of these chemical engi-
neers and ministers ranked highest.
Both men and women who are active
in at least two or three organizations
before marriage also are rated high.
The amount of family income'
seems to bear little relationship to
happiness. However small the in-
come, it should be. saved or spent in
any way agreeable to both parties, the
investigators asserted.
"Mother-in-law trouble" is most
likely to develop if the mother of
either is a widow. Husbands and
wives who love their parents are
likely to love each other. Those who

Column Is Said To Hint
New Deal's Course
Veteran newspaper men say that
many hints as to the future course
of the New Deal can be found in the
column, "My Day," by Mrs. Eleanor
The First Lady has been credited
(or blamed, depending on one's po-
litical views) more than once with
having a hand in the policies of her
husband's Administration. In her
travels, it is said, Mrs. Roosevelt
serves as the official White House
public relations counsel as well as
housekeeping expert, inspector of
CCC camps and dramatic critic.

time off from her many chores this

come from unhappy homes find it
more difficult to make their own
homes happy.
Dr. Cottrell and Professor Burgess
claim that the results of their ex-
haustive survey have been suffi-
cient to show that the prediction
of marriage adjustment is feasible,
at least within certain limits, and
that an expectancy table of probabil-
ities of success and failure in mar-
riage can be devised.
'Early American'
By New Volume
Mayflower descendants, take care!
A list of people with prior claim to
the title of early Americans" has re-
cently been published by the William
L. Clements Library, under the title
of The Muster Roll of Coronado."
Coronado's expedition came to the
North American continent in 1540,
eighty years before the arrival of the
Mayflower at Plymouth. The de-
scendants of these three hundred
Spainiards, therefore, can trace their
pedigrees back to the sixteenth cen-
tury as Americans.
The territory explored by Coronado
and his men was the southern part
of the United States up to Kansas
and as far as Arizona and New Mexi-
co. These states are celebrating the
four-hundredth anniversary of his
travels next year. The booklet was
published, however, not for this, but
for a meeting in Ann Arbor this sum-
mer of the Institute of Latin-Anheri-
can Studies.
Women Get More
Official Positions
Women whose organizations are
the chief supporters of civil service
reform obtained more government
jobs under the merit system last year,
but lost in the patronage field ac-
cording to a report by the Civil Serv-
ice Commission. ;
An increase of 7,660 women in
classified civil service positions shows,
an increase between June 30, 1938
and June 1939, but a decrease of 1,-
104 in unclassified posts. Men em-
ployes increased in both classified and
unclassified positions, the report
points out.
The percentage of men and women;
in the Government Service was re-
ported to have changed little during
the year. Of the 920,310 civil em-
ployes in the Executive Branch of the
Federal Government on June 30, 81.2
per cent were men and 18.8 per cent
were women.
