Union Offers Numerous
Attractions to Campus

The Michigan Union, campus
men's club, if being robbed of one
college tradition-its ivy trim-
but it is firmly hanging on to its
more noted tradition of forbid-
ding women to enter the front
....... door.'
Offering extensive recreational
facilities and endless special ser-
vices-for men only-the Union
Huron River
Site of New
IU' Cam us

No time schedule has been set
for the major part of the project-
ed campus. University officials
have a "master plan" on paper,
calling for construction of the
Huron campus in a series of self-
contained units, each of which will
be of quadrangle design, built as
the need arises and funds become
s " *-
ing unit will be of standard archi-
tecture-but the units will vary.
Modern styles are expected to be
the architectural motif, but the
University doesn't want to commit
itself to a standard style which
may become obsolete.
. The whole project, according
to a statement by President Har-
lan I. Hatcher, has been formu-
lated as a long-run effort to
meet "increasing responsibilities
and demands upon the Univer-
sity." Enrollment has now dip-
ped to 17,000, but in 1948 reach-
ed an uncomfortable peak of
almost 22,000.
Although there must be some
further construction on the pres-
ent campus, "we know now that
there is not adequate space for an
enrollment of 254000 students-or
possibly more-which it is reason-
able to anticipate in the 1960's.
"Since the University cannot
expand much further In its pres-
ent setting, the natural area for
its growth is toward the north
where the valley of the Huron
River and the sloping hills may
be used fully in developing a
campus of beauty and utility."
The new Huron center would be
a mile and a tenth, as the crow
flies, from the center of the cam-
pus. Only the arboretum and the
municipal golf course would sep-
arate the two campusues, making
a virtually contiguous, although
sprawling, University community,
with a recreational center in the
Included in the fine arts center
would probably be the Music
School, which for years has been
dissatisfied with its present cramp-
ed quarters in Harris Hall and
Burton Memorial Tower.
Also in 'U' plans is a beautiful
outdoor amphitheatre set in idyl-
lic surroundings. It would be built
on a concave slope, overlooking an
artificial lagoon.
New Grads
To Hear Dean
Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies will address an
assembly for new graduate stu-
dents at 8:30 p.m. Friday in the
Rackham Amphitheatre.
Dean Sawyer and other mem-
bers of the staff will welcome the
students and explain the facili-
ties and opportunities available to
them at the Rackham School and

on the campus.
The program is being sponsored
by the Graduate Student Council
which represents the University's
graduate student population.
An open house and mixer with
dancing and refreshments will be
held after the talk at the Rack-
ham Assembly Hall for graduate
students and their guests.
Opera Meeting
A meeting of the Union Opera
Program Committee, open to
freshman men and women, will

mittee chairman.

center for students and alumni.
Recently, however, women
have been allowed more liberty
in use of Union facilities. The
cafeteria is open to them week-
days from 2:30 to 5 p.m. and on
Friday and Saturday evenings.
The Bowling alleys are also open
to women on Friday and Satur-
day eveniigs and Sunday after-
noons, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
But in spite of occasional pro-
test uprisings by women students,
the tradition barring them from
using the front door still shows no
signs of breaking down,
ALL MEN students automati-
cally become eligible for member-

mark as soon as tuition fees are
Available at registration, a
membership card entitles a stu-
dent to use the numerous Un-
ion facilities which combine the
advantages of a recreational
hall, a hotel, a lounge, a cafe-
teria and a library.
Recreation-wise, the Union of-
fers swimming, bowling, billiards,
ping-pong, and* in less strenuous
manner, checkers andschess.

NEARLY 200 guest rooms make
the Union popular to football
weekend visitors and overnight
lodging accommodations are avail-
able year-round to members and
The Union's lounge facilities
and cafeteria services have given
it the "campus-meeting place"
Besides its functions as a
men's club, the Union has lately
become a campus service center.
Its third-floor rooms are open
to meetings of accredited campus
groups. The main desk sells sup-
plies, magazines, and newspapers.
On Saturday evening,
throughout the year, the Union
sponsors dances in the second-
floor Ballroom which accommo-
dates 400 couples.
Of special interest to incoming
freshmen, the Union takes charge
of orientation of men students and
sponsors a stag party and a mixer
during orientation week.
Other special functions are:
Travel Service, where drivers and
riders are matched for vacation
travel; Student - Faculty coffee
hours held twice a month; and Tu-
toring Service, in which students
register to receive aid in their sub-
Managed by a Board of Direct-
ors composed of alumni, faculty
members and students, the Union
is a center for most men's club of-
fices. Student managers for 1952-

and Jack Ehlers, '53E, secretary.

various welcoming programs plan-
ned by church organizations.
May Be Ended
Literary college students may
not have another opportunity to
grade their teachers as they have
in the past.
At the last faculty meeting,
members voted to appoint a spec-
ial committee to make recommen-
dations as to whether or not the
evaluations should continue.
Last year the faculty was graded
"a shade lower" than the time

The reservations, which are

man. All unclaimed reservations

practice, we hope to perfect a
flash card section in the near fu-
ture which will rival the best in
the country," Miss Fink declared.
