The Board of Regents has de-

named has always been keenly
interested in the house. Now in
her eighties, she still drops in for
Sunday dinner occasionally and
is an ex-officio member of the
Buard of Patronesses of the Alum-

is operated.
Her husband, the late Prof.
Joseph Markley, was for many
years head of the mathematics
department at the University.

The original building was located
where Forest St. now intersects
Washtenaw. In 1926, however, it
was moved next door to the pre-

torn down to make way for the
construction of Forest St.
The 13 non-graduating resi-

Five will go to Adelia Cheever,

Five are graduating this June.

JUST REMINISCING-Mrs. Mary Markley recalls old memories
with Barbara Grimm, Mary Markely House president, and Miss
Davis, House Mother, at a banquet in honor of Mary Markley
women held at the Union last night. The old red brick structure
at 1219 Washtenaw, which housed 18 coeds on a semi-coopera-
tive basis, will close its doors to residents for the last time this

crease in the amount of co-opera-
tive housing open to coeds.
Still, Mary Markii coeds are
sorry to see their home fold. Many
house traditions have developed
during its 32 years. For instance,
Freshmen are given a formal "in-
itiation" in the Fall. Such affairs
as the Christmas and Senior
Breakfasts are eagerly anticipated

The house has always been
known for its outstanding aca-
demic record.

last two years. In 1948-43, they
also won the activities cup, a uni-

All through the thirties as one
literary magazine after another
folded on the campus, Gargoyle
maintained a wrinkle-proof sol-
vency, relying on its formula of
humor, features and occasional
inroads on the literary field.
Only during the war years of
1943 and 1944 did the familiar cry
of "Get your Gargoyle before the
police arrive" fail to sound along
the diag.

IN 1945, the Gargoyle was re-
vived and a series of "Bloody
Pulps," "Red Gargs" and exposes
of the fraternity system and the
private lives of University deans,
flooded the campus.
Founded originally as a lit-
erary magazine, Gargoyle boast-

Report Dorm
Miss Ann Liggett, chief dieti-
tian at Helen Newberry Residence,
has reported to the Ann Arbor
police the theft of jewels and per-
fume valued at $100 from her
dormitory apartment.
Miss Liggett's apartment, locat-
ed about 20 feet from the back
door of the dormitory, was left
unlocked from 1:00 p.m. until her
return about 4:00 p.m. Thursday
afternoon. Miss Liggett believes
the robbery took place during her
three hour absence.
Miss Marjorie McCoy, house-
mother at the dormitory, noted the
proximity of the apartment to the
back door which "is unlocked all
day for the convenience of resi-
dents and delivery men."
Mrs. McCoy announced the theft
to the residents yesterday and
asked them to recall if they had
seen "any strangers enter the
building through the service door"
on the day of the theft.
