EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
article, the second in a series of
four on the Union, is an official
statement of the Board of Direct-
ors regarding "questions and com-
plaints" received from students
concerning the Union's- services.
The complex organizational
structure of the Union today was
instituted in 1917 when the Board
of Regents of the University ac-
cepted the deed to the property,
agreeing to a provision that the
present constitution be placed in
On June 14, 1918, the Regents
provided that membership fees
would be included in the tuition
charges and $5 per semester was
collected from each male student
for theanext 15 years. Since1933,
when all. fees -were abolished by
the University, the Regents have
allocated a portion of the tuition
of all men students to help pay off
the bonded indebtedness of the
Union. These allocations, used to
pay the cost of the building's con-
struction, have been $3.75 per man
for each semester and $1.50 for the
summer term.
Board of Directors
Policies on all Union activities
are set by a Board of Directors
composed of nine student and nine
non-student members with the
student president as chairman of
the board.
Currently the student members
are: Richard Roeder, president;

college, Ross Hume of the Medi-
cal School, Dick Ford of the Law
School and Chester Kerner repre-
senting the combined schools. The
vice-presidency from the Dental
School is temporarily vacant pend-
ing the election of a new member.
Other Members
The alumni, faculty, adminis-
tration, and Board of Regents are
represented by the remaining nine
members. Erich A. Walter is a
member of the Board ex officio as
director of the Office of Student
Affairs and Regent Harry Kipke

erning body.
T. Hawley Tapping sits on the
board ex officio as the Alumni Sec-
retary along with two other alum-
ni, Dr. Dean W. Myers and Donald
