AHistory of Union
Traced from '03
Parker Sought an Organization
To Provide a 'Bond of Friendship'

By DAVE BAAD
and MURRY FRYMWER
The year 1903 was a big one
for many reasons.
k, Down in Kittyhawk, North Car-
olina, the Wright brothers fin-
ally% achieved results with their
'U' Students
Guide Unioni
Activities
By JIM DYGERT
To many the Union is a place to
play billiards, to bowl, or just to
drink a cup of coffee.
Facilities providing for such, and
other facilities placed at the dis-
posal of the University's male stu-
dents, by the Union, represent only
half of the Union, the physical half,
the most obvious and well-known
half.
The other half of the Union's dual
nature is the Student Activities
Committee, or, as it is more com-
monly called, the Student Offices.
Multitude of Projects
' From -the Student Offices issues
a. multitude of student projects,'
services, and activities. Few stu-
dents are aware of all of these, but
every student has come in contact
with at least one.
The activities carried on by the
Student Offices are managed by
the junior Executive Council, com-
posed of the chairmen and co-
chairmen of the eight executive
committees.
These Councilmen worked their
} way through the experience with
Union activities obtained as tryouts
and sophomore members of the
staff. As juniors, they take over the
administration of Union projects,
striving for "the two senior posi-
tions of president and executive-
secretary.
General Supervision
' Tom Leopold, '55, and Dick Pink-
erton, '55, as president and execu-
tive-secretary of the Union respec-
tively, have general supervision
over the Student Offices. Pinkerton
is more directly concerned with
internal operations, with Leopold
acting more as the Union's repre-
sentative to the campus on exter-
nal matters.
Activities carried on by the Stu-
etdent Offices are extensive. Take,
for instance, the Student Services
Committee chaired by Mark Gal-
lon, '56. Gallon's committee has
conducted the resale of football
tickets at the Union this fall, Ys
planning a Football Open House
after "the Illinois game at the Un-
ion and arranges trips to Detroit
and Toledo for various theater pro-
ductions, among other things.
This weekend's Golden Anniver-
sary of the Union has been planned
and carried out under the direc-
tion of Jerry Hays, '55, chairman
of the University Relations Com-
mittee. A Parliamentary Proce-
dure Lecture; the Student, Faculty,
Administration Conference, and an
art contest are other projects of
this committee.
Social' Committee
r, C. J. Gianakaris, '56, as chair-
man of the Social Committee, di-
rects Gulantics, the all-campus tal-
ent contest, along with the League
and Men's Glee Club. His commit1-
tee is also in charge of jazz con-
certs held at the Union, an annual
speech contest, and foreign travel
lectures,, along with the bridge tour-
neys and Sunday night. record
dances.
The Public Relations Commit-
tee, under the leadership of Todd

flying machine; Teddy Roosevelt
was wielding the power of the
"big stick" and the first 'World Se-
ries 'was played between Boston
of the upstart American League
and Pittsburgh of the National.
It was a big year in Anni Ar-
bor, too.
Disturbance
The "naughty '04' class" was
raising disturbance over such
problems as the intolerance be-
tween fraternity and independent
men, and the lack of a common
bond of friendship among all men
on campus.
Edward F. "Bob" Parker, '06L
one day decided :
CWhat was needed was "an or-
ganization that would be all-in-
clusive; a medium for centraliz-
ing the thought and effort related
to our general life and welfare
as
Parker, with the help of room-
mate D. Bethune Blain, approach-
ed University President James B.
Angell who also expressed him-
self in favor of such an organiza-
tion.
Parker and Blain, both mem-
bers of Michigamua Senior Hion-
orary, took their idea to the so-
ciety. In January, 1904, Michig-
amua issued a, - resolution in the
form of a call to create an Execu-
tive Committee to formulate plans
for a Michigan Union.
Representatives
Included on the committee were
representatives from such organ-
izations as Friars, Quadrangle,
Toastmaster, and The Michigan
Daily.
As Blain later put it: " . .. we
wanted a home for the organiza-
tion, a place where we could meet
and form personal contacts."
The committee, which includ-
ed members of the faculty and
Secretary of the Alumni Asso-
ciation Shirley W. Smith, decided
to "form a students' Union, ar-
range for an annual banquet, and
secure funds for a Michigan Club."
The first official officers form-
ing a Board of Directors of the.
Union were elected on November,
5, 1904. They were : President, Ed-
ward Parker; Recording Secretary
D. B. Blain; Corresponding Sc
Se-retary, Wilfred B. Shaw; Finan-
cial Secretary, Prof. H. M. Bates;
and faculty members Prof. Rob-
ert Wenley, Prof. Fred W. Scott,
and Prof. John Allen.
The first public meeting of the
Union was a dinner held later in
Novembei in Waterman Gymna-
sium, with over 1.100 students at-
tending.

From the
Union
President:*
Dear Friends:
The Michigan Union has
served the campus for fifty
years. Back in 194, Judge Coo-
ley's old house was turned over
to *students to provide needed
facilities and to serve as a place
of relaxation and diversion
from the academic side of col-
lege life. Many changes have
taken place in these fifty years.
The construction of the Union
building and its subsequent ad-
ditions, service to the faculty,
administration, alumni and
friends as well as students, and
the acceptance of women are
all of major significance. But
the basic concept of service to
the campus has not changed.
A changing campus has re-
suted in changes in the Un-
ion's activities to find new
areas of service. I feel it has
been successful A continuous
effort is being made to widen
the scope of service as well as
improve those in which we are
already engaged. Such activi-
ties as football mixers, art con-
tests, ticket resales and hospi-
tal talent shows are a few.
Other progress can be seen in
our expanding physical plant.
Construction gets underway to-
day on the three "million dollar
addition which will provide
Itwo modern cafeterias and a
taproom for students. Increased
space for student activities will
Ibe supplied including record
listening rooms and workshop
area.
I am sure that with your
continued cooperation and sup-
port, the Union can look for-
ward to many more years of
service making your stay on
campus a more warm a n d
meaningful one.
.-Tom Leopold, President
Union Expands
Ticket Resale
An expansion of the Michigan
union football ticket resale serv-
ice to include all campus activi-
ties was announced this week by
Mark Gallon '56, student services
committee chairman.
According to Gallon, students
may turn in tickets to concerts,
plays and other events to be re-
sold at regular prices through the
ticket resale service.
Tickets may be brought to the
student offices from 3 to 5 p.m.
and may be purchased anytime.
Football tickets may be turned in
during the week to go on sale at
9:45 a.mn. the day of the game. Re-
gular prices are charged for all
tickets.

Complete modernization of the
Michigan Union including a sixty
foot addition to the north side
will be completed by the beginning
of 1956 according, to Frank C.
Kuenzel, General Manager.
$2,900,000 has been allocated for
the work which has already begun.
One million of this will go for de-
ferred maintenance. This will in-
clude replacement of the ventilat-
ing system, overhauling of the

electrical system and panels, major
heating and plumbing renovation,
three new elevators and. air-con-
ditioning of the dining facilities.
New Wing
The remainder of th'e money
will be spent for the new wing,
which will conform in design to
the existing architecture of the
Union.
Entrance to the new addition
will be made at a point approxi-

mately sixty feet from the pres-
ent side door. There will no longerj
be a stairway leading down to the
dining area. Instead, two steps
will open onto a new snack bar
which will be an extension of the
present north cafeteria.- .
The small alcove of the present
north cafeteria will be removed.
The food counters of both cafe-
terias will be remodeled into a

AT MICHIGAN UNION:
Facilities Include Television, Teletype

By LEE MARKS
From the ice-making machine
in its basement maintenance
rooms to the Michigauma council
room on the top floor, the Mich-
igan Men's Union is "a complete-
ly self-sufficient unit," said Lee
Tannenbaum, '57, union office
manager.
Boasting facilities for almost
every type of activity, the 50-year-
old institution is constantly ex-
panding.
Athletic facilities include seven
ping-pong tables and 22 pool ta-
bles, found on the second floor, a
swimming pool in the basement,
and bowling alleys located in the
second basement.
In addition, there is a sports
teletype in the billiards room which
keeps a running score on athletic
contests throughout the country.

Serving snacks, full meals, and
soda fountain products, the base-
ment cafeteria features a North
room for members and their dates
and a South wing reserved exclus-
ively for male bull sessions.
A main dining room on the first
floor serves regular meals and is
open for private banquets.
Dance facilities are found on the
second floor and include the Rain-
bow Room with accomodations for
more than 400 couples.
Scene of Weekly Teas
A smaller ballroom is available
for hire to campus organizations
while the adjoining Terrace room
is the scene of weekly departmental
teas.
A gift from Mrs. Edward Waldo
Pendleton, the second floor Pen-

dleton library provides a com-
fortable place for studying or
browsing.
Without Charge
A total of 10 meeting rooms is'
available to student groups with-
out charge for meetings or ban-
quets. In addition to these, Vul-
cans, Druids and Michigauma, the
men's honoraries, have tower
rooms permanently reserved.
Several campus organizations
have their offices in the Union.
On the third floor are the IFOC,
IHC0, Men's Glee Club and Union
opera offices while SL is tempor-

trance in the middle. Also the soda
fountain will be removed from the
cafeteria making room for the ex-
clusive serving of food.
Large Snack Bar
Thus the present basement floor'
will consist of a large snack bar'
with booths along the walls, open-
ing onto the present cafeterias
which will be remodeled into one
serving unit.
The barber shop will also be re-
modeled. The chairs which now
have their backs towards Statea
St. will be facing south with their
backs towards the Administration
Building.
The present men's rest room
will be removed and a new men's
rest room and a ladies powder
room will be built. The present
elevators will be turned on a nine-'
ty degree angle to face. east.
Double Doors
A corridor leading from the en-
trance will continue across the
floor to the men's swimming pool.
Double doors will afford entrance
to the snack bar and cafeterias.
The sub basement which prev-
iously has been utilized for venti-
lator and maintenance space will
contain an activities room.
The exact features of the room
have not been decided, but it is
known that there will be work
tables and material for students
to use.
On the ground floo~r of the Union
the main lounge which is to the
left of the front entrance will be
extended to include the north
lounge.
The doors of the north lounge
which lie to the right of the en-
trance on the main floor will be
removed thus making one large
lounge across the front of the
building.
