BUT WOMEN STAY AWAY:
Union Facilities Serve Thousands Daily
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
in a series of three articles regarding
Union history, organization, finances
By GEORGE WALKER
"More than I could ever hope to
count-or even estimate" was
what Niel Fox, Michigan Union
doorman, said concerning the
number of peopledwho pass through
the Union front door each day.
Fox, whose first duty as door-
man is to preserve a 30-year old
tradition-thatof keeping femin-
ine feet from the sacred stone
steps of the front entrance-said
that he had never tried to count
the number of Union patrons in a
day, an hour, or even a minute.
And he wisely saved himself
the trouble, too, for in a single
day over 4,000 men pass through
the basement cafeteria alone.
There, according to taproom of-
ficials, who seemed to enjoy
compiling statistics, customers
consume in one day approxi-
mately 3,000 cups of coffee, 100
dozen doughnuts, 100 gallons of
ice cream, 200 banana splits, 400
malted milks and 500 cokes.
For the many thousands who
visit the Union daily for reasons
other than satisfying appetites, the
Union offers a wide selection of re-
creational facilities, varying from
a quick dip in the basement pool to
an afternoon of reading in one of
the luxurious easy chairs that fur-
nish the Pendleton Library,
Most Union facilities are de-
signed primarily for the use of
students. In fact, three rooms in

which meets at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow
min Rm. 305 of the Union, will not
start fror scratch, according to
records of the Society in the Office
of Student Affairs.
When the first Pre-Medical So-
ciety on campus was forced to dis-
band in 19042 because of the war,
it left behind not only a constitu-
tion already drawn up, but $16 in
the treasury, which the group now
forming can make use of.
The purposes of the Society, as
embodied in its constitution, are
(1) to offer to the pre-medical stu-
dent on the campus a unified or-
ganizatien, designed to meet his
social and academic interests, (2)
to further more intimate student
contacts and promote more per-
sonal student-faculty relation-
ships, and (3) to broaden the gen-
eral education of the students by
means of lectures, movies, and
tours of interest.

Men will hold a lecture-discussion
program at 7:30 p.m. Thursday,

Prof. Lowell Kelly of the psy-

"The Kinsey Report."
Following a discussion period,
members of AIM will explain their

More than 100 campus organi-
zations use the many meeting
rooms on the second and third
floors for regular gatherings, and
faculty groups, alumni, and several
outside organizations also take ad-
vantage of these meeting places.
If the architects who estimated
years were correct, grandchildren
of the some 14,000 present mem-
bers of the Union will still be able
to enjoy its many facilities even in
1995, when the building will have
to be reconditioned.
Imagine the condition the carv-
ed taproom tables will be in by
that time if over those years, any
great percentage of the senior men
at Michigan take advantage of the
privilege of leaving their initials
engraved in their bewhittled tops!

Is Michigras the Place for Kids?
Kids are OK in their place, but
is Michigras the place?
For many years, Michigras has
been held on a Friday and Satur-
day night, and many people com-
plained about the large number of
children attending. This year it
was suggested that an extra ses-
sion, especially for the kiddies, be
held on Saturday afternoon.
Co-chairmen Rae Keller and
Keith Jordan have requested that
students having booths at Michi-
gras inform them if they would be
willing to work on Saturday after-
noon. They would also like to hear
comments from other students a-
bout the children problem.
Suggestions may be submitted to
