outstanding professional work.
His positions included government

locks. Mr. Ripley served on the ad-
visory board of engineers for the

Biggins Wins
Historic Grant
American Indian Award
Dates From 1817 Pact
Arthur L. Biggins, '42, of Pocatello,
Ida., was recently reawarded a schol-
arship which has a history dating
back to a treaty signed by Michigan
Indians and white settlers in 1817,
at Fort Meigs.
Involved among the clauses of the
treaty was a grant of three sections
of land to the Catholepistemiad, a
school that later became the Uni-
It was in commemoration of this
gift, the first received by the school,
rather than of the bloody fighting
ended by the treaty, that the Board
of Regents authorized scholarships
covering tuition for "five persons
recommended by the U.S. Bureau of
Indian Affairs" a few years ago.
Biggins, Who held the American
Indian scholarship during his first
two years in the University, is now
the only American Indian scholar.
During his freshman and sophomore
years hendid outstandinghacademic

Three Faculty

Among the new faces on the fac-

A new army and navy ROTC ar-
mory is expected to resound with the
sound of marching feet and shouted
commands when the University opens
for the 1941-42 school year next Sep-
tember, according to Prof. Lewis M.
Gram of the civil engineering de-
partment, who heads the faculty ad-
visory committee to the military sci-
ence department.
Members of the committee are
working with the professors of mili-
tary and naval science and tactics
and buildings and ground depart-
ment workers to complete plans and
cost estimates for the building. Upon
their completion, specifications will
be sent to the war department with
a request for the building.
Preliminary estimates place the
building's cost at "anywhere from
$500,000 to $1,000,000," Professor
Gram said yesterday. Inspections of
the Michigan State College ROTC
armory in East Lansing and the naval
reserve armory in Detroit have
shown University officials that a

building at least 125 by 250 feet in
ground area will be needed to house
the ROTC here.
Among the sites under considera-
tion for location of the armory is a
tract on Washington Street between
the Health Service and the Uni-
versity laundry building.
The armory's facilities, Professor
Gram said, would include offices,
class rooms, drill floors, a rifle range,
an arsenal and a magazine for stor-
age of ammunition. All activities
of both military and naval training
units of the University would be
housed in the building, according to
present plans of the committee.
Announcement of planning work
on the projected armory came last
week, with a statement by President
Ruthven to the effect that present
housing facilities of the ROTC had
long been inadequate. This year's in-
creased enrollment in military train-
ing and the advent of naval work, he
said, necessitate a decided increase
in housing faciilties.
