Philharmonic's History
Is Tale Of Pioneering
The history of the New York Phil-
harmonic Symphony is a history of
uninterrupted music making since
the days, almost a century ago, when
the telephone and airplane were un-
dreamed miracles. For twenty years
the Philharmonic was without a rival
and laid the foundation for the de-
velopment of musical taste in New

Visit Room


From the first days when students
egan to drift back onto campus for
all registration, Room 2, University
iall, has been stirring with students
earching for living quarters, apply-
ng for loans or work, or smooting
ver things to get back into the
Jniversity's good graces.
Room 2 is where Dean of Students
oseph Bursley has his offices, and
hat is a thing for every good student
o know; for through Dean Bursley's
ffice come loans, financial recom-
mendations, and paternal advice . in
ll matters.
Source Of Loans
Many students have already taken
advantage of the loan system in use
it the University by arranging for
uition money to be repaid either
from time to time during the school
year or at some future date. During
the year 1939-40 loans granted to
students totaled $159,217.46; even
that is a substantial drop from the
1938-39 total.
The University rooming bureau
yearly springs into existence in Room
2, though the rush of students before
and -during registration period gen-
erally necessitates its removal to
more spacious quarters, this year the
main lounge of the Michigan Union.
All dormitory applications, however,
are handled in Room 2.
Is NYA Center
After the first rush of NYA appli-
cations has been handled over in the
Romance Languages Building this
bureau is moved back into Room 2
under the directorsliip of Miss Smith,
who also assists students to find work
outside the Unversity during the
school year.
Eligibility cards which are needed
for participation in all extracurric-
ular activities at the University are
obtained by producing an acceptable
record of scholarship at Miss Scan-
lan's desk. Likewise, charters for
the formation of new fraternities or
societies may be gotten here.
