Plan to Build Rink and Keep It
In Shape Five Months
Of the Year
Michigan students will enjoy ice
skating five months out of the school
year, it was announced, yesterday by
Fielding H. Yost, director of athletics,
as a result of the purchase of Wein-
berg's Coliseum, made last week. This
indoor ice pavilion has hitherto been
operated as a private enterprise.
"The Coliseum will be open to all
men and women of the faculty and
student bodies," Director Yost stated.
It will be rebuilt, enlarged and im-
proved. In addition to facilities for
pleasure skating,tan ideal hockey rink
is to be built for the use of the Var-
sity and interclass hockey team. When
artificial ice manufacturing facilities
are completed, we will be able to
schedule games almost any time of the
year and will be independent of
weather conditions."
Michigan hockey teams have had
poor equipment for some time, but
have a good record in spite of it. The
1924-25 aggregation won the Confer-
ence championship without having a
home rink to play or practice on part
of the time.
Although no purhase price has been
announced, it is known that a con-
siderable sum was involved. Like all
athletic plant, the Coliseum was en-
tirely paid for by the earnngs of com-
petitive sports.
Student health is improved this year
according to a June report issued by
the University Health service.
According to statistics compiled byI
the Health service, the number of dis-
pensary calls for June was 1121 for'
1925, 2645 for 1924, and 1158 for 1923.
Reported room calls were 35 for 1925,
28 for 1924, and 22-for ,1923. Hospital1
refers amounted to 43 for 1925, 721
for 1924, 62 for 1923. The number of
hospital bed patients was 6 for 1925,
9 for 1924, 16 for 1923. For the years
1925, 192 4,and 1923, the number of]
infirmary bed patients were 38, 45, and

tave Moeller, head of the art depart-
ment of the State Normal School at
Milwaukee, and the costumes were de-

bricht, of the art department of the
