Union Pool Result of Student Campaign
By JIM DYGERT
+ew of those who take an oc-
casional and refreshing dip in the
Union swimming pool know the
story behind it, a story that vivid-
ly illustrates what determined stu-
dent action can do.
For nine years, from the lifting
of the first spade of earth in the
construction of the Union in 1916
to the opening of the poolin 1925,
the Union swimming pool lay in-
complete for lack of funds. It took
a spirited campus campaign to
raise one-third of $16,000 needed
to finish the pool and make the
pool a reality instead of an idle
AN OFFER by the Alumni As-
sociation to provide two-thirds of
the funds if students raised the

ary 1925. Within four days the
Union, with the cooperation of the
Inter-Fraternity Council, raised
$5,50,11, more than the quota, by
selling 1,101 books of swim tickets.
These books contained 25
tickets, each good for one swim
in the pool after it was opened,
and sold for $5 apiece. Frater-
nities sold most of the books in
a battle for the loving cup of-
fered by the Athletic Association
to the fraternity that raised the

nounced, would be inscribed with
the names of the five highest fra-
ternities and placed in the Union
billiard room. Beta Theta Phi
captured the loving cup by dis-
posing of 250 books of swim tick-
ets, more than twice as many as
112 sold by runner-up Alpha Del-
ta Phi. Other fraternities receiv-
iUg recognition for their work in
the drive were Phi Delta Theta,
Sigma Phi, and Chi Psi.

THE DRIVE'S success enabled
the pool to be opened by May 19-
25 through the installation of the
filtration, treating and heating
plant. Other work, such as the

Robert Richter, a New York mi-
crobiologist believes that he may
have unearthed clues to the pres-
ence of new antibiotics. Richter is
a member of an expedition explor-
ing Crystal Caves for the first
time. Biologists, genologists, me-
terologists and bacteriologists are
experimenting with animal life,
soil, rock and air conditions in the
caves 300 feet underground.
Richter has found what may be
a new type of fungus produced by
the reaction of the atmosphere of
the cave on dead insects. Fungus is
used in developing antibiotics and
there is hope that new antibiotics
may come from this fungus.
