plain its actual position.
The Union exists today because
for over forty years individual men,'
both students, faculty, and alumni
members worked to bring it into
being and to foster its growth. To
restore this participation in the,
affairs of the Union by the stu-
dent body, the Board of Directors
will welcome any questions, sug-
gestions or complaints about the
Union from its 13,678 members;
now on campus. The House Com-
mittee will meet from 3 to 5 p.m.
Friday in the Student Offices of
the Union for the specific pur-
pose of contacting students desir-
ing to present ideas about the Un-
ion. After that date, written com-

More than 1,000 men partici-
pated in a mass banquet, Novem-
ber 11, 1904 at which the Uni-
versity of Michigan Union was of-
ficially launched as the social and
recreational center for University
men. A year earlier a student un-
ion to meet the pressing need for
a meeting place for mlen had been
only an idea in the mind of Bob
Parker, a student who was to be-
come the Union's first president.
By 1907, funds raised by student
activities and alumni contribu-
tions were sufficient to purchase
the Judge Cooley home which
stood on the side of the present
structure. Five years later, in
1912, the Union constructed an
addition which we kn'ow today as
the Mimes Theatre to provide a
large meeting room and dance,
hall and to enlarge its dining fa-
Two University alumni, the
Pond brothers, drew up the plans
for the Union, the first building of
its kind in the country, and in
June, 1916, President Hutchins
turned the first shovelful of earth
to formally start the construction
of the present building. Delayed
by the first World War, the inte-
rior finishings of the main building
were not completed until 1920 al-
though it functioned as the head-
quarters for many war activities,
even being used as a barracks by;
the Student Army Training Corps.
By 1917 the Union, which then
boasted more than 5,000 life mem-
bers, had cdllected more than one-
third of its million dollar building
costs, chiefly through a nation-
wide drive to raise funds from
alumni members. That same year
the members of the Union volun-
tarily placed their organization
under the control of the Board of.
Tomorrow: Who Runs the Union
Of 'U' Student
A jet plane may be the fastest
transportation between two points,1
but a glider is the most effortless,
according to Lyle Maxey, 48E.
Maxey, an ex-Navy Pilot who
prefers gliding to power flight,
has been a glider pilot since 1937
and has participated in many
meets, including last year's na-
tional contest at Elmira, New
With several other glider pilots
at the University Maxey is form-
ing a glider club open to students
with any previous flying experi-
ence. Although Maxey owns his
own German built glider and is
constructing another, he said that
one of the chief purposes of the
gliding club will be to purchase a
glider "with good performance"
which members can use in meets.
Dick Nelson, 48E, who has also
had experience in gliding, explain-
ed that the club is being formed
to train novices as well as to pro-
vide regular flights for experienc-
ed members of the group.
Gliding, or the "art of flying a
motorless plane in a steady down-
ward flight," not only has been
adopted as a sport, but was used
during the war to deposit men
and equipment behind enemy
lines, Nelson said.
Cbmplete information on glid-
ing and the plans of the club will
be provided at an organizational
meeting at 7:30 p.m. today in Rm.
1042, East Engineering.
