.ineed Haven Hall Site Will
iclose BuildingMaterials

Medieval CraftRevived

The stout wire fence, installed
Monday around the site of Haven
Hall, will soon enclose a vast stock-
pile of building material, an offi-
cial of the construction firm said
yesterday.
The official explained that the
mountain of dirt now at the site
will be used to fill in around the
reinforced concrete foundation of
the new building.
He added that so far the work
has been on schedule. The build-
ing is slated to be ready by March
1952.
Though a Washington, D.C. con-

struction firm has been laying the
foundation for the addition, a De-
troit company will complete the
job.
Walter Roth, superintendent of
the plant department, said that
the Haven Hall site will be land-
scaped when the construction is
finished.
"Plans for the Angell addition
were done before the Haven fire,"
he said. "Though later we did
make some modifications to pro-
vide more classroom space in the
new building, we plan to leave that
corner of the campus open."

HIDDEN BEHIND the Delta
Kappa Epsilon chapel on Wil-
liams Street is a modern adapta-
tion of a medieval craft union-
the Potters' Guild.
The guild, an organization of
Ann Arbor pottery enthusiasts, is
housed in a ramshackle, ivy-cov-
ered building just a stone's throw
from bustling State Street. But
inside its weather-worn door is
another world.

FIRST STEP in making a piece of pottery is to prepare the
clay. Doris Mela (left) cuts balls of clay, and wedges them
together to get rid of air bubbles. Winifred Arnold adds water
to powdered clay and mixes it to modeling consistency.

The IFC will begin its fourth
year of sponsoring the Student
Book Exchange next semester.
And the book store will be big-
ger and better than ever, accord-
ing to Tony Palermo, '51, mana-
ger.
Next semester, for, the first time
the book exchange will inaugurate
a policy of picking up used books
from students at their residences,
he said.
There will be an agent in every

PHILIP MORRIS challenges

individual living unit which wishes'
to cooperate, including fraterni-
ties, sororities, residence halls,
league houses, and co-ops. This
agent will receive the books from
the students, saving them the trip
to exchange headquarters in the
Union.
Any houses who desire agents
should contact Chuck Good, as-
sistant manager, at 3-8581.
Other students, not served by
this system of agents, may take
their books to the exchange in
Rm. 3-C in the Union as before.
This can be done Jan. 29, 30 and
31 from 3 to 5 p.m.
The basic procedure of buying
and selling books through the ex-
change remains the same. Stu-
dents set their own price on their
used text books. If the book is sold,
10%of the sale is deducted to de-
fray administrative expenses and
the balance is remitted to the stu-
dent through the mail by check.
If the book is not sold, the stu-
dent may reclaim it or leave it
with the exchange for storage and
future sale.
Another new feature of the book
store this semester will be more
adequate housing for the stock of
books. In past semesters, the ex-
change has always been compress-
ed into small nooks and crannies.
But the new quarters are spacious
and possess two exits to expedite
the heavy traffic.
For the first time also, the book
store has a backlog of books to
offer prospective buyers. About
500 books are left over from last
semester's business, Palermo esti-
mated.
By the time students are ready
to buy, the exchange officials hope
to have over 2000 texts to offer,
he added.
Besides dealing in textbooks, the
Student Book Exchange also han-
dles slide rules, drafting sets, lab
kits, and other second hand items
used by students.
The IFC, sponsor of the non-
profit organization, supplies the
manager and assistant manager
of the organization. However,
there is a great need for volun-
teers from other campus organi-
zations to help supply the staff for
the exchange.
Council, 'U',
Agree on City
Street Change
At its meeting this week, the
Ann Arbor City Council voted 11
to 2 to approve an agreement with
the University which provides for
an extension of Forest Ave. to Ca-
therine St. in exchange for the
closing of Clark St. where the Un-
iversity plans to build its new
Medical Research Center.
Some members of the council
found the agreement unsatisfac-
tory because the University was
unable to grant the city's request
to widen Forest Ave. from Huron
St. to Ann St.'
Edmund A. Commiskey, Univer-
sity legal advisor, said that the
University had not contemplated
widening Forest because of a lack
of funds.

concern to the potters; beauti-
ful products and the joy of
creation are their rewards.
The Potters' Guild, begun in
1949, is composed of about a. doz-
en Ann Arbor citizens, strident
wives and faculty members, most
of them accomplished ceramists.
EVERY MEMI ER is an owner;
they drift in at any hour to work
on their projects, to do a bit of
repair work on the building, or
just to have a bull session about
the current art exhibits or guild
affairs. The members' monthly
dues pay the rent and expenses
of the guild.
Weekday nights the guild is
host to its 32 students, who
gather for three-hour classes in
beginning and advanced pot-
tery-niaking. The classes are
self-supporting. Besides classes,
the students spend hours in the
workshop, striving, to perfect
their skill.
Mary Kring, of Ann Arbor, and
Rhoda Lopez, wife of Prof. Carlos
Lopez, of the architecture college,
are the instructors.
OFFICERS ARE Wilma Dona-
hue, director of the Bureau, of
Psychological Services, president;
Charles Palmer, assistant editor
of the University's Middle English
dictionary, first :vice-president;
Carrie Taylor, of Willow Village,
second vice-president, and Wil-
liam A. Lewis, of Ann Arbor, secs
retary-treasurer.
Harriet Waite, of Ann Arbor,
director, summed up the spirit
of the guild in this way: "What
I like about the guild is its
healthy atmosphere. It's a co-
operative enterprise in which
people actually cooperate."
The ceramitists generally select
articles which have a utility as
well as artistic value. Dishes, jugs
and jars vie with ash trays and
figurines for popularity.
Cooperation and congeniidr
are the bywords of the medieval
Potter's Guild, where, just a few
yards from campus, time stands
still.

SECOND STEP on the road from clay to finished product is to "throw the pot on the wheel."
Elaine Fukuda (left) and Mary Kring (right), guild instructor, take balls of mixed clay and
center them on a flat wheel which is revolved by foot lever. Alice Bernfield, Grad., watches.

THIRD STEP sees the clay taking shape as Mrs. Fukuda deftly
molds the ball of clay into the desired shape. The process
takes from 15 minutes to an hour.
