History Of Golf Course Is Revealed

the east side of State Street and has
now been abandoned entirely.
"In acquiring the land for the
present course, the University had to
use the right of eminent domain,"
Professor Trueblood said. "About 140
acres were condemned and all but ten
were sold to the Athletic Association
immediately. However, one man who
owned ten acres refused to sell, claim-
ing that the land was not to be used
for educational purposes but only for
athletic purposes.
"So the Athletic Association went
to court, where it was held that physi-
cal education was a part of the func-
tion o fthe University, and the land
was to be purchased at the appraised
The new course took about two
years to construct and represents an
investment of $365,000. Athletic
Director Fielding H. Yost played the
leading part in organizing plans for
its development.
McKenzie and Maxwell, prominent
architects, designed the course. Mc-
Kenzie, a Scotch architect, is known
for his work on many other standard

and championship courses, including
the famous St. Andrews course in
Scotland, where for many years in-
ternational championships have been
The course is watered by springs
under the Stadium, situated across
Stadium Boulevard. Water from the
Stadium seeps into a six-foot tile
leading to a main city sewer. In the
summer this passage is blocked off,
and the water runs down to the golf
course, where a powerful engine is
used to distribute it over the course.
When the season is over, the water
from the Stadium is allowed to run
its regular course again.
From 25,000 to 30,000 persons play
the course annually,, Herbert T.
Rogers, manager of the course, esti-
mates. Among these have been Tom-
my Armour, Walter Hagen, Jimmy
Thompson, Lawson Little, Horton
Smith, Johnny Malloy and Michigan's
Johnny Fischer and Chuck Kocsis
and a great number of other men
prominent in the game. Fischer holds
the course record, a 64, scored in
June, 1936.

Book Exchange
To Open In Fall
Started Last Year In Union;
Owner Sets Price
A student-operated book exchange
where used textbooks can be sold
for the price asked by the owner
was opened by the Union last year.
The book exchange operates only
at the beginning and end of each
semester. The exchange charges only
i small percentage of the sale price
of each book, in order to meet ex-
penses. Since the organization oper-
'tes without profit, prices on used
books should be lower, usually, than
in the local bookstores..
Books are not sold directly to the
exchange, but are left there for sale
at any price the owner names. Em-
ployees of the exchange are all stu-
dents, chosen by the Union Under-
graduate Council. Announcement of
the dates during which the book ex-
change will be open will be made dur-
ing Orientation Week.

Botanical Gardens
51 Acres Of Fertile
Land Located Here
Among the valued possessions of
the University is its Botanical Gar-
den, a plot of fertile land consisting
of 51 acres, which offers facilities for
all phases of botanical instruction
and research concerned with growing
Among the equipment which be-
longs to the Botanical Gardens are
seven greenhouses, a two-story brick
laboratory, and ample work rooms.
The entire tract has been piped for
An important feature of the green-
houses, it has been pointed out, is the
provision of several separate rooms
for individual research problems,
each equipped with automatic heat
control and independent ventilation.
A collection of growing plants for
teaching and exhibition purposes is
now being developed on a wide scale.
It includes more than 2,000 species
and varieties.
