Residences
Build Displays
For Weekend
Campus Makes Ready
As Students Set Scene
To Welcome Visitors
Basements and secluded back
yards have become the meeting
places for practically every men's
and women's residence on campus.
With the judging only one day
away, work on Homecoming dis-
plays has taken on a fast and fur-
ious air of mysterious preparation.
One big mystery to several local
merchants is the disappearance of
discarded cardboard boxes. When
they again appear they will un-
doubtedlyhbe transformed into
4 either huge Michigan football
players or sad-looking Golden
Gophers.
After staying up practically all
night in most cases, the carpen-
ters will probably look as down-
trodden and "beat" as Michigan
fans hope the Minnesota team'
looks after the game in the after-
noon.
Judging the displays tomorrow
morning from 8 a.m. to noon will
be Miss Ethel McCormick, Social
Director of the League; Dean Sara
Healy, Associate Dean of Women;
and Mrs. Clarabelle Baird of the
Speech Department.
Other judges will be Dr. George
Peck of the Political Science De-

Modern B'nai B'rith Building
Rapidly Nearing Completione

Construction is progressing rap-
idly on the new B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundation building located at
1429 Hill, according to Al Fried-
man, '52, president.
Although difficulties encoun-
tered this summer in obtaining
steel and other scarce materials,
caused a slow down in construc-
tion, all materials have been re-
ceived and it is only a matter of
time before the building will be
completed, he said.
Rough estimates indicate that
the $500,000 building will be fin-
ished in January.
Plans for the building were
drawn up about two years ago, by
a Detroit architect. The facilities,
more complete than any of the
200 Hillel Foundations in the
country, will include a chapel

seating 300, a music room, a
lounge and numerous work and
recreation rooms.
A special three-story dormitory
section will be included to house
fifteen students who will be se-
lected for scholarships providing
free residence. Students are now
applying for these scholarships.
Darkroom facilities, two kit-
chens and various offices will also
be provided by the new building.
A stage in the chapel will be
available for dramatic produc-
tions.
