University fund.
The traditionof a fund-raising
project has grown with Michigras'
predecessors. the Union Fair and
the Women's Athletic Association's
Penney Carnival.
In 1905 the Michigan Union
decided to have a carnival "for
a good cause." That year they
presented a county fair in an
effort to raise money to buy land
for a "Michigan Union Club-
house."
President Parker, of the Univer-
sity, appointed a committee which
made arrangements for a carnival
held on May 6 in Barbour and
Wbterman gyms. The parade,
scheduled for that afternoon,
was cancelled because of rain.
The carnival idea langmished un-
til 1924, when the Union wanted
to raise funds for a swimming pool.
While the receipts that year were

bining the WAA and Union pro-
jects to form Michigras.
The aim was to build up funds
for a dormitory for men; al-
though it was readily seen that
the amount the committee could
raise would be only a minute
stone towards the building. Re-
ceipts that year totaled $5,000,
expenditures, $3500 and net pro-
ceeds, $1500.
In 1937, the funds went to the
University of Michigan band and
for the new women's swimming
pool.
Michigras keeping step with the
University continues to grow.
While the receipts in 1947 were
$9500 and the net proceeds, 3100,
the proceeds in 1952 reached $6,-
000 and the receipts hit $20,000.
The 1952 profits went to the
Fresh Air Camp, Wendy Owen
Blood Research fund and for the
women's swimming pool.
