Co-op Houses
Are Expanding
Founded In 1934, Have
Increased To Six
From an unassuming beginning in
1934 the cooperative housing move-
ment at the University has expanded
until last year there were 125 stu-
dents living in six different coopera-
tive houses.
In 1934 the Rev. H. L. Pickerill
rented a room in the basement of
his home on Maynard Street to Eldon
Hanm, who was working his way
through school. By the end of the
year three men were living together
in the' basement and sharing the task
of keeping order. In the next year
a shower and gas range were in-
stalled, and eight men joined to-
In the next year, 1936, these eight
formed the nucleus for a cooperative
house, and with the aid of a loan
from the minister succeeded in estab-
lishing themesleves on Thompson
Street. In 1937 the group moved to
the present Rochdale Cooperative
House on Oxford Road, and, in the
same fall a Girls' Cooperative House
was established on Ann Street.
The cooperative movement was
established firmly, and it took just
a short while for it to expand. Ten
men continued to live in Dr. Picker-
ill's cooperative basement, with study
desks, ample plumbing faculties, a
small and compact kitchen and a din-
ing room seating 14. Last fall an-
other group of cooperators formed
the Robert Owen cooperative House
at 922 S. State Street, and Congress,
independent men's organization, or-
ganized a house in the second sem-
ester. A sixth house is the Socialist
Membership fee for Rochdale, Rob-
ert Owen and Congress houses is

Hook missed second place in the
Big Ten shot put last year by only
one inch, and Ostroot has pushed the
iron ball out some 45 feet with ease.
In the discus Ostroot has bettered
Watson's freshman record by more
than eight feet.
Other new power from the fresh-
man squad will be concentrated large-
ly in the other events. Two fine pole
vaulters will join up with Dave Cush-
ing and August Fabyan to provide
one of the finest vaulting corps in
Wolverine history. Chuck Decker
vaulted well over 13 feet while in
high school and may be the number
one vaulter next year. Wayne Mac-
Master will push his teammate to the
Long-striding Bill Ackerman will
be a familiar figure this year in the
'distance events. He has been run-
ning the mile in about 4:25 and the
two-mile in 9:45 with very little
competition. He will team up well
with Capt. Ralph Schwarzkopf.
In the sprints Doherty will have
Bud Piel, Don Jones, Al Thomas, Ed

ler. Thomas and Piel have run the

Stackhiouse To Coach Here
Chester Stackhouse, who developed
such Michigan greats as Bill Watson,
Ralph Schwarzkopf and Jack Leutritz
will be new freshman track coach at
the University. In his seven years
as coach at Saginaw High School,
his teams never lost a dual meet to
a Class A school and won two state

obtained after interview with the
committees on admission and vote by

Each house has its own elected offi-

activities. The president is usually
