New University Constructions
Include BuildingInnovations

SEveral construction techniques
unique to this campus will be in-
corpor'ated in the four education-
al structures presently being built.
"The General Service Building
is particularly interesting" as the
first structural steel building to go
up on campus, Walter Roth, Uni-
versity plant superintendent, de-
clared. It will also be the first
building here to have H. H. Ro-
berston Metal Q-Flooring, a cell-
ular material through which wires
can be run at six inch intervals.'
This, he explained, will permit
installation of outlets any place
along the floor that they may be
convenient. He said that such
wiring will be a great advantage
,in an office building since place-
ment of outlets cannot be prede-
termined accurately.
Another first in the General
Service Building will be the use of
large double-hung, aluminum-
sash windows. They were used in
the Burton Memorial Tower, but
only in small sizes. Use of this
type window will eliminate the
necessity of any exterior painting
during the life of the building.
Air Cooling for Radio Station
The whole building will have
filtered and washed air, and the
fifth-floor radio broadcasting sta-
tion will have an air-condition
cooling system. Fluorescent light-
ing throughout the building and
most offices and the auditorium
for visual education work will be
accoustically "treated. Wainscot-
high ceramic tile will be installed
in all coridors to minimize inter-
ior painting requirements.
Gainsley Plans
Traffic Control
Capt. Roland "Barney" Gains-
ley, bead of the local police uni-
form division, advocates immedi-
ate traffic control changes in the
campus area.
Gainsley, recent graduate of a
three-week traffic police training
course at Northwestern University,
said that some measures should be
taken to safeguard pedestrians on
campus. r
Recently promoted to captain
by the police commission, Gains-
ley said that he will start a traffic
training course for the entire
force the first of the year. A sign
department will also be added to
the force to facilitate local traffic
control, he added.

The Business Administration
Building will be a four-floor re-
inforced concrete structure with a
five-floor structural steel tower.
"All offices in the tower have
been planned for the most econo-
mic utilization of floor space,"
Roth explained. The tower plan
will permit outside lighting for all
offices and will proportion dim-
ensions so that floor and wall
space will be fully used.
Lounge-Smoking Room
A feature of student interest
will be the lounge-smoking room
in this building. Roth said that a
study is being made to include
similar rooms in other campus
buildings, but this structure is the
first to have adequate lounge fac-
ilities incorporated into the ori-
ginal plans.
The building will also have ac-
coustics, fluorescent lighting, fil-
tered and washed air, and double-
hung aluminum windows. "Em-
phasis throughout will be to make
the building a modern office
structure," Roth said.
Exhaust Ventilation
The Chemistry Building addi-
tion will have a "vast improve-
ment" in exhaust ventilation,
Roth said. He explained that mo-
dern exhaust ventilation will not
only eliminate unpleasant odors,
but will also reduce the excessive
painting requirements caused by
noxious fumes. The use of ceram-
ic wall materials will also lessen
painting needs.
Another campus structural in-
novation will be the office ar-
rangement in the East Engineer-
ing Building addition. The build-
ing will not be divided in half by
corridors, as has been the tradi-
tional construction technique.
"The equal division floor plan has
made offices long and narrow, and
has wasted space," Roth said.
New Floor Plan
The new plan will divide the
wing so that the office side will be
several yards narrower than the
classroom section of the building.
In addition to making offices
more conveniently proportioned,
the plan will make more floor
space available for classroom uses.
The wing will also have air fil-
tering, and washing equipment
and fluorescent lighting.
It will be the first educational
bilding to have roof insulation of
the type first used on campus in
the construction of Victor Vaugh-
an House. The top floor will be
protected from the summer sun
by a built-up roof of mica com-
posite slabs. Drop-ceilings have
been found unsatisfactory.
Report on FEPC
Prof. Edward W. McFarland, of
the Wayne University sociology
department, revealed that Wayne
has collected between 5,000 and
6,000 signatures for the state
FEPC bill, in an address Sunday
to the Michigan chapter of the
Independent Citizens' Committee
of the Arts, Sciences and Profes-
He added that approximately
75,000 signatures have been col-
lected in the city of Detroit.
Gil Dancey, chairman of the
Ann Arbor FEPC house-to-house
campaign, told the chapter that
45 registered voters are now can-
vassing Ann Arbor for signatures.
He appealed for additional vol-
unteers to facilitate a more com-
plete coverage.

Ruthven Says
Citizenship Is
For Individual
Asserting that society cannot
be manned by specialists, Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven
speaking at the College of the
City of New York Saturday, said
that responsibility of citizen-
ship is an individual one.
"Every person should be as well
prepared as possible for intelli-
gent participation in it," he told
attendants at a conference on
"Education for Living."
Educators must undertake two
tasks, if colleges and universities
are to do their share in prepar-
ing the kind of citizens needed
to become worthy members of
world society, President Ruthven
"In the first place, they must
resist every attempt to overem-
phasize vocational training in the
undergraduate years," he de-
clared. "Their second obligation
is to, insist that graduate and
professional programs of study be
sufficiently flexible to permit the
student, with proper guidance, to
elect cultural subjects."

in the library reading room at
West Lodge.
The two opposing speakers will
be Dr. Herbert Abrams, former
UNRRA medical officer in China
who is now doing graduate work
at John Hopkins University, and
Dr. Stewart Allen, superintendent
and surgeon-in-chief of a Canad-
ian Mission Hospital in China for
the past eight years, who is now
a visiting surgeon at the Univer-
sity Hospital. Both men were in
Communist as well as Nationalist
areas of China.
Recital Ticket
Still Available
Tickets for the special concert
which Salvatore Baccaloni will
present Dec. 5 are still on sale at
the University Musical Society's
offices in Burton Memorial Tower.
Making his third appearance in
Ann Arbor, Baccaloni will give the
second in a series of special con-
certs planned by the Society be-
cause of the large number of stu-
dents who were unable to pur-
chase tickets for the regular Chor-
al Union Series.
Baccaloni is considered the
greatest basso buffo in the world,
according to Charles A. Sink,
president of the Society. Dr. Sink
explained that because Baccaloni's
previous performances here were
given during May Festivals, the
character portrayals which have
made him famous were limited by
the Festival repertoire. Next
week's concert, however, will fea-
ture many of his most important
buffo roles.

BY-GONE DAILY-As a result of format changes in 1922, The
Daily resembled the above edition until today. New headline
styles have also been incorporated through the years.

Daily Format

After the turn of the century,
The Michigan Daily replaced The
U of M Daily. The new paper had
five columns and was 18 inches
deep. The Daily of Sept. 26, 1908,
was another milestone, presenting
the first Daily photograph and
two-column headlines.
The Daily became a six-column
paper Oct. 4. 1911, running 19
inches deep and beginning to re-
semble the present-day paper.
The first seven-column Daily to
be printed on the present flat-bed
press was published Sept. 20, 1922.
With the erection of the new Stu-
dent Publications Building in 1932
and the addition of more modern
type fonts, the second-to-the-last
step in the metamorphosis was

umns wide and 21 inches deep.
