JIlon Financial Policies
lxplained by Directors

EDITOR'S NOTE: The f llowing ar-
ticle, the last in a series of four on
the Union, is an official statement
of the Board of Directprs regard-
ing "questions and complaints" re-
ceived from students concerning
the Onion's services.
"For a non-profit organization,
he Union certainly seems to be
iaking a lot of money," is an un-
ounded comment often heard on
he campus.
Amortization of the Union'
uilding is.actually $334,000 in ar-
ears as of July 1, 1946. The Un-
)n building which was completed
a 1920, has a life expectancy of
5 years, according to architec-
ural estimates. At the end of
hat period, in 1995, the Union
il need approximately one and
half million dollars to finance
he replacement of the present
tructure. With more than one
hird of that time already past,
he amortization fund contains
nly $186,000 instead of the need-
di half a million.
isposition of Income
Of the $925,000 gross income
om sales and services for the
ist fiscal year, more than one
hird, or $354,000, was paid out
n wages and salaries to 290 stu-
,ent and 135 non-student em-
The final $59,000 outstanding
ond issue was paid off last De-
ember 31 with funds allocated
Voted Attorney
Co Talk Here
Laurent K.'Varnum, president of
he Michigan State Bar and prom-
ient Grand Rapids attorney, will
peak on the subject of bar or-
anization and the obligations of
le legal profession at 3 p.m. to-
ay in Rm. 150, Hutchins Hall.
Organization of Michigan's bar
s well as that of other states will
e discussed by Varnum. He will
lso outline the ethical obligations
icurred by bar members both as
racticing lawyers and comnmunity

by the University from the stu-
dent tuitions.
Food and supplies cost the Un-
ion $358,000 last year and it paid
sales and excise taxes of $18,000.
The rooms for rent and the caf-
eteria are the main revenue pro-
ducing sections of the Union
which enabled it to put $70,000
into the building amortization'
fund during the fiscal year of
A Subsidiary of the University
Run as a subsidiary of the Uni-
versity, the Union pays for all
services and utilities with the ex-'
ception of its heat and light which
it receives from the University's
central power and heating plantsa
free of charge under the origin-a
al 1917 agreement.
With a present total of 25,275
life members and a greatly in-
creased University enrollment
which is expected to continue well
above pre-war attendance, the1
Union's Board of Directors is now
planning an expansion program
to provide more adequate service
to its membership.
Perhaps the most important
single improvement to be made
by construction of the proposed
million dollar wing, which will
add 50 feet along the entire North
side of the building, is the re-
vamping of the cafeteria and kit-
chen facilities which were con-
structed in 1917 and have been
outdated for at least ten years.
Bonds To Finance Addition
The addition, to be financed by
a new bond issue, will increase the
dance floor by more than half its
present size, adding a smaller
ballroom which can be used eith-
er separately for dances or meet-
ings or to further enlarge the
main dance floor.
Music appreciation rooms, more
meeting rooms, and an additional
space for the student offices and,
their activities will occupy the
second and third floors of the new
wing with additional lobby, kit-
chen, and dining room space on
the first and additional lodgings
on the fourth floor.

Headliners of the nine top ar-
tists who will appear in Norman
Granz' "Jazz at the Philharmonic"
Tuesday are Coleumn Hawkins and
Buddy Rich.
Hawkins, who has won every,
tenor sax award for expertness,
including the coveted Esquire Gold
Award for 1946, started his musi-
cal career with Mamie Smith's
Jazz Hounds in Kansas City back
in 1923. After he left this group,
he joined Fletcher Henderson and
played with him for a full decade
till 1934, then began a tour of
England and the Continent as
both soloist and leader. ReturningI
to this country, he organized his
own band. His most famous solo
is "Body and Soul."
Vaudeville Veteran
Buddy Rich was a professional
at the tender age of three. During
years of touring the vaudeville
circuits with his parents, Buddy
missed public schools until he was
fourteen. After his schooling he
spent nine years traveling around
the world and picked up five lan-
guages. He appeared in the
"Greenwich Village Follies of 1922"
and later played with Joe Marsala,
Artie Shaw and Tommy Dorsey.
Rich is one drummer who does
not depend on specially written
drum arrangements. He impro-
vises as he sees fit, keeping rhythm
by chewing gum in tempo.
Known as the glamour boy of the
music field, he 'sports a custom
built car with his initials em-
blazoned on a crest of two drum-
sticks and a crash cymbal.
Show Emcee
Franz, who acts as emcee for the
show, attained national recogni-
tion for writing and directing the
Academy Award short, "Jammin,
the Blues," which was acclaimed
the finest pictorial treatment ever
accorded jazz on the motion pic-
