AUDITORIUM FOR LEAGUE BUILDING ASSURED

ANONYMOUS GIFT OF $50,004)
MAKES COMPLETION OF
PLANS POSSIBLE
MEMBERSHIPS ARRANGED
New Wing Will Contain Auditorium,
Dressing And Meeting Rooms;
Stage To Be Equipped
Michigan women are now assured
that the contract for the auditorium
wing of the new Women's League
building will be let immediately as an
anonymous gift of $50,000 has just
been received, which wil make the
auditorium no longer a dream but a
reality.
After the first $1,000,000 was raised
for the Women's League building, At
was found that the entire amount was
required for the completion of the
main unit and an auditorium wing
could not be built. However, Pond
and Pond, the architects, were au-
thorized to prepare plans for the main
unit and an auditorium wing.
To help secure the necessary funds
for the auditorium wing, undergradu-
ate women pledged $50,000 to be giv-
en in yearly installments of $10,000.
This money will be earned by extra-
curricular activities, such as the
"Junior Girls' Play." When the con-;
tracts for the main unit were let, the
shell of the auditorium wing was as-

sured. To aid in the completion of
this wing D. M. Ferry, Jr., Detroit,
gave $8,000, an anonymous gift of
$2,000 was received, and $10,000 was
given by the Michigan women of Ann
Arbor. Now with this latest gift of
$50,000 the auditorium wing is assur-
ed. In having the auditorium com-
pleted when the contractors are al-
ready on the grounds means a saving
of $25,000. When the contractors
turn the Women's League Buildingj
over to the Women's League of the
University it will be a completed
building.
The auditorium wing will contain,
besides the aurditorium proper, dress-
ing rooms and a series of committee
or club rooms. These rooms which
will be on the floor below the audi-
torium will open on the patio, while
the stage of the auditorium will open
on a terrace above the patio. These
rooms will be especially useful as
equipment will be installed for the
making of costumes, the painting of
scenery and the rehearsing of plays.
In future years, the costumes for
Junior Girls' Play can be made there
and the scenery can be both designed
and painted there.
The stage of the auditorium is
large. The equipment for lighting
the stage will be only the minimum
amount necessary, but it will be ar-
ranged in such a way that as more
funds are available more equipment

can be added without tearing out,
what has already been installed.
Seniors in the University are urged
to pay their life membership in the
Women's League soon, for on July 1'
the memberships will be raised from,
$40 to $50. All women in the Univer-
sity may have their life membership
in the League for $40 if this is paid
before they graduate. The amount of
money which they pay will be in part
determined by the amount already
paid with the tuition, $10 each year.
Freshmen will automatically become
members at the completion of their
four years. All women attending the
University are free to use the
Women's League building, but all
others must be members in order to
enjoy this privilege. Alumnae mem-

berships are $50, memberships for
wives of faculty members are $50,
faculty women may have member-
ships for $50, and members of the
Ann Arbor branch of the American
Association of University Women
may have memberships for $50.
