lost Union Functions Aimed
oward Service for Students

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following ar-
ticle, the third in a series of four on
the Union, is an official statement
of the Board of Directors regarding
"questions and complaints" receiv-
ed from students concerning the
Union's services.
Originally conceived as a meet-
ing place for men, the $2,101,000
Union building was constructed by
the joint efforts of students, fa-
culty, alumni, and administration
Today, although the Union has1
a responsibility to all of those
groups plus the Board of Regents,
the vast bulk of the Union's func-
tions are directed toward serving
the students, with the principle
exceptions of the University club,
main dining rooms and rooms for
MYDA Elects
Officers for
SPr n Term

MYDA plans to send letters to

lege, and also letters to students
of the University, describing the
situation at Michigan State,
where, according to Miss Ratner,
the eight members of AYD who
were placed on probation are be-
ing "intimidated". These letters
will also give information on the
Callahan committee, recently set
up by the State legislature to in-
vestigate "subversive activities" in
Michigan colleges.
Book Reviews
Cleveland Era
The close tie between Grover
Cleveland, twice president of the
United States, and the University
is to be fully detailed in a book
being prepared for publication
next summer by the University of
Michigan Press.
The book, which will be entitled
"Michigan and the Cleveland
Era", is being edited by Prof. Lew-
is G. Vander Velde, director of
the Michigan Historical Collec-
tions, and Earl D. Babst of New
York City.
Term Planned
A four-week post session to fol-
low eight-week summer session is
under consideration by University
officials as a result of the findings
gathered from the veterans' ques-
tionnaire distributed during regis-
tration, Prof. Louis Hopkins sum-
mer session director, announced.
Prof. Hopkins said that the
Summer Session Committee is
currently considering the needs
and problems of a post-season that
would benefit University veterans.

American countries is the first
project planned by Pi chapter of
Phi Iota Alpha, newly-organized
fraternity for Latin American stu-
Designed to promote under-
standing between the various

retary; and Grover Trytten, treas-

Meeting Rooms
More than 100 accredited camp-
us organizations use the Union's
meeting rooms for periodic meet-
ings as do a smaller number of
faculty and alumni groups. A few
outside groups and national pro-
fessional societies, the Red Cross
and the Boy Scouts are permitted
to rent rooms during the day or
during vacation periods when
there is no demand by campus or-
Three campus honorary socie-
ties, Michigama, Vulcans and
Druids have each been granted
permanent meeting rooms in the
Union Tower.
The Student Legislature, the
campus chapter of the American
Veterans Committee and the In-
terfraternity Council share office
space in one room.
Lodging Policy
The Union's policy on lodgings
is to hold its rooms for members
of the Union or their guests. As
only 20 rooms are available in the
League, an exception is made to
permit girls, as well as men at-
tending the University, to put up
their parents at the Union.
Normally any student can en-
gage lodgings for his guests but
at certain times during the year
when the demand for housing is
obviously greater, such as com-
mencement, football weekends, or
May Festival performances, rooms
are all reserved for out-of-town
life members and their immediate
families.Life members are all
former students who completed
four years here after 1918 or paid
the Life membership fee.
Other Facilities
The Union barber shop, cafe-
teria, bowling alleys and soda bar
are open to all customers as is
the main dining room, although
during rush hours, Union mem-
bers - are giving first preference
over outsiders in the dining room.
The billiard, ping pong, and ball
rooms are reserved for the use of
members and their guests. The
swimming pool is also reserved
with certain exceptions as is the
case of University women who pay
as guests Tuesday and Thursday
University Club
The University Club, occupying
a large lounge and gameroom and
enjoying the use of a private din-
ing room, contains roughly two-
thirds faculty members and the
rest townspeople and pays for it-
self through the membership dues
of its 750 members and the serv-
ice charges in the game room.
More than 50 per cent of the
food prices in the cafeteria go di-
rectly for the cost of the food as
compared with an average of 38
per cent for commercial restaur-

April 16-Set-
As Hopwood
Final Deadline
Freshman Winners
May Submit Material
Now that the Freshman Hop-
wood contest is over, interest is
once again centered on the April
16 deadline for all major and min-
or award manuscripts.
Dean Hayward Keniston, of the
literary college, in his address to
freshman award winners, urged
them to continue their writing ef-
forts in the minor contest. He ci-
ed past freshman award holders
who have continued writing and
published novels.
Mary Cooley, assistant to the
director of Hopwood contests,
said that several contestants have
already turned in manuscripts for
major and minor competition in
fiction and poetry categories, and
added that she expects a larger
than usual entry in poetry.
Several persons are working
against the deadline to complete
dramas, and others are putting
the finishint touches on novels.
A number of major fiction candi-
dates have submitted their novels
to professional typists for final
A sophomore has submitted a
novel for the minor contest. This
is a r'are occurence, Miss Cooley
said, because, due to stiff sched-
ules, novels are usually confined
to upperclass students.
Past Winners
Publish Work
A recent survey of information
concerning past Hopwood award
winners, reveals that one former
award holder has published a book
of stories, and two, others have
poems in popular magazines.
John Ciardi, winner of a major
poetry award in 1939, has a poem,
"Winter Solstice", in the Feb. 22
issue of The New Yorker maga-
zine. Ciardi has also finished a
volume of poetry which has been
accepted by Atlanti Monthly
Press for publication. He is a
teacher of creative writing at Har-
vard University.
Bernice Slate's poem, "Apothe-
cary Shop", is included in the
winter issue of Prarie Schooner,
creative writing magazine publish-
ed by the University of Nebraska.
Miss Slate won summer awards
in poetry in 1944 and 1945.
"The Cow-Tail Switch and oth-
er West African stories," a col-
lection written by George Herzog
and Harold Courlander, has been
published. Courlander won a ma-
jor Hopwood essay award in 1932.

practices and techniques of col-

will be published Saturday.

and Howard H. Peckham, former
curator at the Clements Library
and now Director of the Indiana
Historical Bureau.

as the basis for the book. They
have included numerous anecdotes
concerning cases of discovering or

'Ensian Tryouts
There will be a meeting for
all students interested in trying
out for the editorial staff of the
Michiganensian at 4:15 p.m.
today in the Student Publica-

In view of the unprecedented
demand throughout the state for
more adult education, faculty
members might consider taking
assignments in extension work,
Dr. C. A. Fisher, director of the
University Extension Service, told
a meeting of the University chap-
ter of the American Association of
University professors last night.
Large Scope
The scope of the courses that
the extension service is called up-
on to furnish is extremely large,
Dr. Fisher said. It extends from
classes such as real estate, insur-
ance, and banking-courses de-
signed to increase income---to
strictly intellectual courses such
as those in "Great Books" and dis-
cussion seminars on books of con-
temporary interest. If the exten-
sion serivce is to answer the re-
quests for additional classes of
both types, it should have more
help. .
Dr. Fisher suggested three pos-
sible solutions, but added that the
first, the formation of a separate
faculty for the extension service,
is -not favored.
Second Possibility
The second possibility is that
extension teaching could be in-
tegrated with University work and
regular assignments could be made
to faculty members for off-campus
classes as well as those taught on
