'U' Development Council
Reports Fiscal Success
By JANE HOWARD
Considerable growth, both fi-
nancial and intangible, has mark-
ed the first operating year of the
University Development Council.
In the Council's first annual re-
port, released recently, figures and
summaries show the organization's
progress between July 1, 1953,
when official operations began,
and June 30, 1954.
Alumni contributions, accord-
ing to Assistant Council Director
Thomas L. Dickinson, comprise
the Council's most significant
first - year progress. Through
the newly - instituted Michigan
Alumni Fund, 6,600 graduates of
the University contributed more
The University lhas been desig-
nated a center for the nationwide
administration of the Law School
Scores on the examination are
used as one of the bases for ad-
mission of applicants by many law
schools throughout the country.
The test was prepared and ad-
ministred by the Educational Test-
ing Service, Princeton, N.J. and
is given four times a year. The
next test at the University will'be
Feb. 19. Future tests are sched-
uled Apr. 23 and Aug. 26.
Applicants are requested to con-
tact the law school they plan to
attend to find out the date on
which they should take the test,
and to get in touch with the test-
ing service not later than ten days
prior to the chosen date.

Director Alan W. MacCarthy, "has

Established in May, 1953, as one
phase of the Development Coun-
cil, the Fund aims toward annual
alumni contributions to the Uni-
versity, with emphasis c-1 the need
for extensive alumni participation
rather than on size of individual
Ultimately, MacCarthy predict-
ed, contributions "between $500,-
000 and $1 million should be real-
ized annually from the Fund."
Although the chief first-year
aim of the Council has been to
launch an extensive alumni con-
tribution program, through the
Alumni F'md and other channels,
emphasis has also fallen on an ex-
tensive survey of University needs.
"We've accomplished several in-
tangible things," Dickinson said,
"which will be of considerable
long-run importance, paving the
way to more gifts and grants." He
added that many thousands of
dollars have been given by corpo-
rations and foundations, and cit-
ed programs, now going into effect,
to improve the University's rela-
tions with students, alumni and

Student Activities Building
Site Approved by Regents
Construction of a Student Ac-
tivities Building on a site south

as offices for the Dean of Men

dent fees, with the exact amount
to be determined later.

Authorization to proceed with
plans for 300 additional apart-

also given by the Regents.
The firm which planned the 100
units now under construction on
the North Campus was awarded
the contract for the additional
units. It is expected that construc-

be completed by the fall of 1956.

Due to the need for more office

converted into an annex to the
The change was completed be-
tween semesters with the addition
of eight new desks, flourescent
lighting and a doorway.
New space available will be used
to house such groups as the Bu-
reaucats, which is the League's
secretariat, the Frosh Weekend
and Junior Girls Play committees.
The decision to convert the
Charlotte Blagdon Chapel to an
office was made because the

Ethel A. McCormick, social di-
rector, pointed out that the room
can be reconverted to a Chapel at
any time 'by replacing the desks
by chairs and an organ, which
are now in storage.
Besides the new room called the
Blagdon office, the under graduate
offices consist of five rooms:- an
office shared by Assembly and
Panhellenic Association, the Presi-
dent's office, the professional staff
worker's office, a meeting room
and a reception room.
None of these are as large as the
18 by 30 foot Blagdon office.
A part of the building since the
League opened in 1929, the chap-
el has been used occasionally for
meetings, initiations, and wed-
dings. Miss McCormick emphasized
that it will still be possible to use
it for these purposes.
