SL Culture, Education Group
Handles Advisory Program

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
third in a series of descriptive
articles concerning the Student
Legislative committee system.)
The well-received course-con-
tent advisory program initiated
during registration week this
term, was the result of long term,
diligent planning by members of
the Student Legislature Cultural
and Educational Committee.
Plans now being formulated call
for further expansion of the pro-
gram to provide on the spot help
from student experts to freshmen
and transfer students. The possi-
bility of extending the service to
other schools besides the literary
college is also being considered.
Committee members plan to
choose their "experts" from the
ranks of campus honorary socie-
Movies and Eisler
Other projects falling under the
jurisdiction of the committee
range from a campus poll on mov-
ies to the highly controversial
Eisler-debate issue.
The movie poll was taken last
Fall to help managers of local
theatres select films for revival.
Results have been turned over to
the theatre managers, who have
submitted them to Hollywood of-
ficials to back up the requests.
After unsuccessful attempts to

'ecure official approval Iof a de-
bate in which German Communist
Gerhart Eisler would participate,
the committee has revised the
plans which now provide for a de-
bate on civil liberties, with well
known authorities on the subject
Students interested in working
with the committee should contact
Miriam Levy, chairman, at 2-4471.

LAST STRONGHOLD for the male on campus is the Michigan Union, where only on special occa-
sions may the "fairer sex" enter the "hallowed portals" pictured here.
The present Union Building was completed in 19'0 at the cost of :3.000,000, donated chiefly by
alumni members. Previous to the completion of the present building, "Union members" used to meet
in the old Mimes Theatre, which is located at the side of the Union.

ent of Dream
But the embryo organization
had one serious problem. There
was no meeting place. The men
kept their eyes open, however, and
three years later, with funds ob-
tained from student activities and
alumni contributions, they bought
the Judge Cooley house, which
stood on the site of the present
Since then, the Union has been
in the process of constantly out-
growing its quarters. In 1912 the
Union constructed the building
that is now the Mimes Theatre,
thus acquiring a larg~e meeting
room and dance hall and expand-
ing dining facilities.
The biggesttday, though, for the
founders of the Union came in
June, 1916, when President Hutch-
ins turned the shovelful of earth
that officially started the con-
struction of the present building.
