knowledge such a statement has
never appeared.
Since the primary purpose of
Michigras is to raise money for
a women's swimming pool, the
time and money put into it by the
students are, in effect, donated
to the University and earmarked
for the pool. There was consid-
erable discussion last year about
the amount chargedby the Build-
ing and Grounds department for
labor and rent.
Before we are asked to contrib-
ute our time and money this year,
I think it is only reasonable for
us to ask what proportion of our
efforts will eventually go to the
swimming pool fund. The best an-
swer you can give is to publish a
complete financial report of last
year's Michigras.
-James J. Brady.

"The aim this year Is to keep
down the expense for the average
student. This means more free en-
tertainment, better entertainment,
and a good deal more work. With
more experience behind us this
year our hope is to eliminate the
crowded conditions we know ex-
isted," Rae Keller, co-chairman,
said yesterday.
"This year the proceeds will be
split between the women's swim-
ming pool and a charity the Union
"We certainly hope to turn over
a good deal of money to the two
funds; but first and foremost we
want to give the campus the big-
gest and best Michigras possible.
Campus Get-Together
"This is probably the only time
during the year that all the cam-
pus organizations get together and
have a good time. We encourage
everyone with ideas to submit
plans for the parade and booths."
Prizes will be awarded to pa-
rade and booth participants on
the basis of originality and clever-
