Activities Sponsored by Union
Range from Trips to Contests

By LOUISE TYOR
Student activities sponsored by
the Union include everything from
theater trips into Detroit to dis-
plays in the Union basement.
Among the larger events which
the Union sponsors are specialty
dances on football weekends when
there is no other campus dance,
jazz concerts featuring either lo-
cal or national jazz bands and
mixers during Orientation Week.
Sponsors Contests
The Union also sponsors contests
throughout the year, two of these
being a photography contest and
an art contest.
University Day, for which high
school students from Michigan and
neighboring states are invited to
see the University, is also an ac-
tivity of the Union. The visitors are

Likes Active
Jfob at Union
By DEBRA DURSCHLAG
She came when they were pour-
ing the cement for the founda-
tion of the Union and has been
here ever since.
Miss Bertha E. Welker is the
unsung heroine of the office of the
Union general manager. Outlast-
ing three managers, several Union
additions and yearly shifts of offi-
cers, she has provided her own
personal touch for a host of guests
as well as students.
'Girl Friday'
T Many alumni tend to agree with
one grad who confessed to Miss
Welker that "You're the only one
I recognize around here."
Now girl Friday to her fourth
manager, Frang C. Kuenzel, Miss
Welker looks bacx on almost forty
years of Union service with a mix-
ture of nostalgia and humor.
An Ann Arbor resident, she
came here practically out of high
school, plunging right into a job
that hats brought her in contact
with University visitors ranging
from Detroit dignitaries to royalty
such as Queen Wilhelmina of the
Netherlands. "It's fascinating
work," she says.
Union Favorite
A friendly personality has also
made her a general favorite
around the Union. She knows
everyone from the manager down,
to the bus boys in the cafeteria. In
fact, one of her greatest thrills has
been seeinig these boys who have
worked their way through school
come back a success.
Booking room reservations, in-
cluding meeting rooms and dinner
appointments, constitutes the main
part of the secretary's job. But
there are certain things about the
Union that no one but Miss Welker
knows, and not the least of her
concerns is getting such items as
lost hats, dentures and even a glass
eye back to their proper owners.
Busy Week-ends
Sometimes during a football
week-end when hundreds of alum-
ni are knocking the Union door
for rooms, her managing ability

taken on tours of the various
schools and colleges which inter-
est them most.
Many files of special help to stu-
dents and student organizations
are compiled by the Union. One file
lists all men on campus with any
type of entertaining talent. Anoth-
er of these lists the names of tu-
tors in various courses.
Conferences
Student - Faculty - Administra-
tion Conferences are held to dis-
cuss pertinent problems concerning
the University. Student leaders are
invited to attend the Union-spon-
sored Regents and Faculty-Student
coffee hours.
Working with the League and
Men's Glee Club, the Union helps
to sponsor Gulantics, a variety
show. Again working with the
League, the Union puts out the Un-
ion-League Activities C a l e n d a r
each semester.
Helpful to student leaders and
all others interested is the Parli-
amentary Procedure Course, which
follows Robert's Rules of Order.
A travel service is another activ-
ity of the Union. Operating before
vacations, the service helps driv-
ers find riders, and those wishing
to ride, means of transportation.
Union Opera
Director Here
Fred Evans arrived in Ann Arbor
this week to assume duties as di-
rector of the Union Opera, "Hail
to Victor!"
The 30-year veteran of show
business has directed the Opera
for five of the 35 shows in Opera
history.
Evans said the music for this
year "sounds excellent," and ex-
pects a good show after usual pro-
duction staging and difficulties
are worked out.
General chairman of this year's
Opera is Jay Grant, '55. Other
chairmen i selude Bob Gillow, '56;
road show manager; Bob Hoffman,
'56E, production chairman; Harold
Johnson, '56SM, music chairman;
Howie Boasberg, '56, general sec-
retary; Guy Moulthrop, '56E, pro-
motions chairman; and Stu Ler-
man, '56, program chairman.
A contest is currently being con-
ducted for an Opera program cov-
er design. Interested persons may
contact Lerman at NO 2-4431 or
NO 3-8786.

chairman, Jon Collins, '56E. Ads
and articles going to The Daily,
distribution of posters and other
publicity, and maintenance of the
Union's showcase displays come
under the jurisdiction of Collins'
committee.
Union staff sophomores and try-
outs work on one of these commit-
tees, or on the Personnel and Ad-
ministration Committee which su-
pervises the office and tryout
training. Co-chairmaned by Keith'
Pohl, '56BAd, and Merrill Kauf-
man, '56E, the committee is in
charge of staff meetings, the Union
News, a staff newspaper, and all
the miscellaneous headaches in-
volved in keeping an office funo-
tioning smoothly.
Chairmen Appointed
Chairmen of these committees
are appointed each spring by the
president and executive-secretary
about a week after they themselves
have been chosen from all peti-
tioners for the top positions by the
Selections Committee of the Board
of Directors.
The previous president and ex-
ecutive-secretary are members of
the Selections Committee which
chooses the new officers on the ba-
sis of petitions usually 25 pages
long or more, and lengthy inter-
views.
Any Union member may petition
for the senior position, but, as Pink-
erton pointed out, unless he has a
familiarity with the Union gained
through the experience of two or
three years on the staff, he has lit-
tIe chance of surviving the cross-
examination by the Selections Com-
mittee.
Top officer of the Union is the
president, who also serves as chair-
man of the Board of Directors and
as a member on all Board of Di-
rectors committees. However, he
is most directly concerned with
the Student Offices, and manage-
ment of the physical plant is left
to House Manager Frank C. Kuen-
zel.
Policy Making Body
The Union Board of Directors is
the policy making body of the Un-
ion and concerns itself mostly with
financial matter. Its work is divid-
ed among various committees such
as the Finance Committee, the Ap-
pointments Committee of which
the executive-secretary is chair-
man, the House Committee, the By
Laws Committee, and the Union
Opera Committee.
From time to time, special com-
Inittees are set up to implement de-
cisions by the Board on a project.
At present, two such committees,
the Union Addition Committee and
the 50th Anniversary Committee,
are functioning.
Membership on the Board of Di-
rectors, besides the president and
executive-secretary, includes sev-
en student vice-presidents, five of
which are elected by Union mem-
bers at large, the other two being
elected by the Medical-Dentistry
Schools and the Law School.
Vice-Presidents Named
At present, the fivervice-presi-
dents elected at large are Howard
Nemorovski, '55E, Richard Buck,
'55, Robert Henderson, '55, Jay
Grant, '55, and Gregory Schmidt,
'55. The Law School representative
is Robert Baker, '55L, and George
Chatas, '57M, represents Union
members in the medical and den-
tal schools.
In addition, there are three fac-
ulty members chosen by the Fac-
ulty Senate. Faculty members of
the present Board of Directors are
Prof. William B. Palmer of the
economics department, Prof. Doug-
las A. Hayes of the business ad-
ministration school, and Prof. Otto
G. Graf of the German department.
Alumni members of the Board
are Donald C. May and Joseph C.
Hooper. They are chosen by the
Board of Directors of the Alumni
Association.
The Board of Regents member

on the Union Board is Otto E. Eck-
ert.
Ex-officio members of the Union
Board of Directors are Dean of
Men Walter B. Rea, University Fi-
nancial Secretary Chester 0. Wis-
ler, General Secretary of the Alum-
ni Association T. Hawley Tapping,
and the highest ranking male of-
ficer of the Student Legislature
Steve Jelin, '55, president of SL.
The president and executive-secre-
tary of the Union are ex-officio
members of the Board.

FRANK C. KUENZEL:
Union General Manager
Rose From Waiter's Job

Dining Areas Increase, but
Male Dominance Decreases

By RONA FRIEDMAN
A waiter in the Union during1
his undergraduate days, Frank
Kuenzel, '27, became general man-
ager fifteen years later.
"It's only human nature to shoot
for the .top," Kuenzel pointed out,
adding, 'especiany in industry."
In print, the general manager's,

looking math major from Grand,
Rapids, pointed out with pride,
"you know the Union is over a
million dollar organization."
There are eight different busi-.
nesses in the building, he continued,
and each of them, even the barber
shop, is supervised by the of -
fice.
Therefore, he added, we have t*i
be pretty well versed on all types
of businesses.
Though the Union liandles a to-
rific volume of business, moot
branches just break even, he ej.:-
plained. The source of revenue
in the Union comes from lodgiitig.
With 189 guest rooms, the Union
is "quite a hotel" he said, with ,all
club facilities. Few other college
unions are built on this scale, ;he
pointed out.
The Union was the first large bne
in the country and most of the
others were patterned after otars,
he commented.
Comparing the values of all-rnale
and coed unions, he said "if you're
starting from scratch it is better
to have one institution for both
boys and girls. However, when; the
Union was built in 1916, there were
only rooming houses on carnpus
and we needed a place for boms to
meet. The number of girls; on
campus was very small."
"Now that we have dormitories
what we need is a place for boys
and girls to meet."
Though students are fundamen-
tally the same, there have been a
lot of changes, he feels. Actiaities
are more organized today anil the
student is working harder.

By PHYLLIS LIPSKY
An increase in size and a de-
crease in areas open solely to male
patrons are the principal changes
in the Union's dining facilities
since the present building opened
in 1919.
Taking its cue from the typical
men's club after which it is pat-.
terned, the Union at first admitted
women to its main dining room
only on Sundays. Until 1927 they
were served in a separate room.
Ban Remains
One of the few areas in which
the ban against women is still
retained is the south cafeteria in
the basement and even here the
rule is set aside on football week-
ends and at other times when
there is a capacity crowd.
Expansion of dining facilities
began in 1930 when the outdoor
terrace attached to the main din-
ing room was enclosed. This in-
creased the dining room capacity
from 180 people to 280.
The cafeterias, which currently
seat 370, were enlarged to the
present size when the old bowling
alley area was converted to the
south cafeteria in 1938. With the
completion of the new Union
wing, which will have a snack bar
and remodeling of the old cafeter-
ias Frank C. Kuenzel, general
manager of the Union, estimates
future capacity at 900.
Kitchen facilities will also be
expanded and modernized. Pres-
ently located on the first floor, the
master kitchen services both the
dining room and the basement
cafeterias. It will be moved to the
basement, Kuenzel explained, so
that cafeteria food can be cooked
on the spot.

The upper kitchen will be ex-
panded and will serve only the
dining room.
In addition to its regular dining
facilities the Union banquet rooms,
including the main ballroom, seat
approximately 1100 guests.
Approximately 160 people are
employed to keep these servcies
going. Ninety of them are stu-
dents, most of whom work on a
part-time basis,

FROM COOLEY HOUSE:
Four Stones from First Union
Embedded at Front Entrance

By CAROL NORTH
The hundreds of students pass-
ing daily in and out of the Michi-
gan Union probably don't realize
they're walking over four of the
original stones from the first Un-
ion building.
In 1907, led by a group of stu-
dents who realized the need for
an organization on campus such
as a men's union, the University
purchased and remodeled the for-
mer home of Judge Thomas M.
Cooley, who received an honorary
degree here in 1873.
On State St.
Located on State St. where the
International Center and the busi-
ness office now stand, the Cooley
house served as the Union's first

dances and dramatic events were
held there.

sary in 1912 to build a new addi-
tion that was to be called Assembly
Hall.
Later this addition was to be re-
named Mimes Theater and serve
as host to the Union Opera and the
University's first dramatic per-
formances.
Further Growth
The Union was to see further
growth however, and in 1916 ground
was broken for the building that is
today's Union.
During the construction, four of
the stones from Judge Cooley's
house were placed on the left side
of the first level in the walk lead-
ing to the Union's front door, as a
reminder of the rapid growth of
the organization.
