C. Sadler. Unable to carry the work
and responsibility of the deanship
because of his health, Dean Cooley
vcontinued to serve the University as
professor of naval architecture and
marine engineering. Upon Dean Coo-
;.ey's full retirement two years ago,
the Board of Regents conferred upon
him the titles of dean emeritus of
the College of Engineering and pro-
fessor emeritus of the department of

In the next few years primary schools sprang up in different towns,
providing preliminary training for those wishing to enter the University.
Lack of funds caused the failure of this attempt, and in 1837 the Board
of Regents of the University of Michigan was created by the state legisla-

Physical Plant Described
On August 10, 1841, a year before
the University was to open, the Mich-
igan State Journal, published in Ann
Arbor, described the physical plant
thus :
"The main building is four stories
high, built of brick, handsomely and
durably stuccoed so as to give it
very nearly the appearance of Quincy
granite. Besides this, four professors'
buildings of the same materials are
finished. More classical, models of
a more beautiful finish cannot be
imagined. They honor the architect,
while they, beautify this already
beautiful village . ."
The main edifice was christened
"Mason Hall," in tribute to Governor
Stevens T. Mason. This building still
stands as the north wing of Univer-
sity Hall.
Two Men On Faculty
When the doors were opened that
first September, the faculty num-
bered two men: the Reverend George
P. Williams, formerly head of ' the
Pontiac branch when the University
had consisted of many branches
throughout the state, as professor of
mathematics, and the Reverend
Joseph Whiting, professor of lan-
guages. There were seven students
enrolled in the University in 1841,
six freshmen and one sophomore,
although 12 graduated when the
first class left the University.
To enter the University, it was
necessary to pass an examination on
geography, arithmetic, English gram-
mar, algebra through simple equa-
tions, Virgil, Cicero's select orat-
tions, Sallust, Jacob's or Felton's
.Greek Reader, Stoddard's or An-
drew's Latin Grammar, and Sopho-
cles' Greek Grammar, according to,
the catalogue of the Department of
Arts and Sciences. -
The catalogue added that "testi-
monials of good moral character are
required in all cases."

University's Rules
On Student .Driving
Rigidly Enforced
Most rigidly enforced and often one
of the most misunderstood rulings
administered by the Office of the
Dean of Students is that forbidding
students at the University to drive
The Dean of Students is authorized
by the Regents to grant driving privi-
leges only in "exceptional and extra-
ordinary" cases. In addition to re-
stricting student driving, the rule also
forbids students from riding in their
own cars when the car is being driven
by anyone other than a member of
the student's immediate family.
Special permission is granted to
students who wish to commute, from
some distance or who are over 27
years of age or married. Permission
for driving and storing cars in Ann
Arbor is never automatic, and may be
obtained only by petitioning the Dean
of Students.

As the traditional beginning of the
winter formal season, the Union -For-

tower of the Union contains the chap-
ter rooms of three Senior Secret hon-
orary societies-Michigamua, the all-
campus group, Druids, the Literary
School group, and Vulcans, the En-
gineering School group.
Staff Serves Students
On the main floorare the offices
of the Executive Committee of the
Union and of the Union President and
Secretary. The Union staff exists to
serve the University and the students.
From the time the new Michigan man
enters Orientation Week until he gets
his diploma the student is in contact
with this large student staff. After
introducing the class of '45 and trans-
fer students to Michigan life through
tours, rallies, and mixers, the Execu-
tive Staff of the Union swings into its
regular program of activity.
At the beginning of each semester

the Student Book Exchange, a non-
profit text book market, is operated
in the lobby of the Union. As soon
as enrollment is completed, Union
registration of all Michigan men be-
gins. Registration and the accom-;
panying "Union pin," well-known
badge of Michigan men, involve no
additional fee as Union dues are in-
cluded in the University tuition
Ticket Desk Operated
During the football season the;
Union staff operates a Ticket Re-;
Sale Desk for the cnvenience of those
wishing to exchange or sell football
tickets. On Sunday evenings the
Union shows movies of preceding
Michigan football games. And the
Union also conducts the stadium
"card display" during home football
"Black Friday," the culmination of
freshman-sophomore class rivalry, is
under the supervision of the Union
and occurs about mid-way through
the football season. "Coke Bars" be-
gin after the end of the football
schedule. The Union's Fall "Open
House" has become an institution and
tradition on campus. The Union
Opera, sponsored jointly with Mimes
Society and featuring a large all-
male cast, is presented to the campus
in December. The "Winter Carnival,"
a highlight of the winter sports sea-
son featuring exhibitions and campus
competition, is held in January or
February under Union sponsorship.
The "Activities Smoker," introduc-
ing new students to the many campus
extra-curricular organizations, is held
at the beginning of the second semes-
ter. University Day, when the Union
is host to groups of high school stu-
dents, is also held during the second
Sponsors Lectures
Other Union-sponsored programs
include a series of Vocational
Guidance Lectures, Faculty-Student
Bridge Contests, a Style Show, and a
Travel Board which aids students to
get to and from Ann Arbor during
vacations. In cooperation with other
groups, the Union conducts campus'
elections, debates, Youth Hostel Hikes
and Forum Discussions.
Many traditions have grown up
around the Michigan Union. Prom-
inent among these are the taboo on
women using the front entrance, the
customp of table-carving by senior stu-
dents in the Tap Room, and the bar-
ring of women from the Pendleton
Library and the Tap Room.
The Union was built in 1918-20 and
has been greatly enlarged since. It
is now one of the largest and most
complete college Unions in the United
States and is an organization of
which all Michigan men are proud.

What Does
Mean to Youp
Did you ever stop to think how intimately
your daily life is affected by your drug store?
The average person comes in contact with his
druggist more times than with any other mer-
chant in his community.
For your personal safety and for the safety of
the community at large there must be druggists
who can be relied upon to render quick, efficient,
reliable service whenever it is needed.
With this view in mind CALKINS-FLETCHER
Drug ,Stores have served the students at the
University of Michigan and the City of Ann
Arbor for many years.
On campus the phrase "I'll meet your at
Calks" has become a standby with Michigan
To those of you who are returning to the
University -we only need say "Se' you' in the
fall!" To the Class of '45, we send a hearty
welcome and ask you to come in and get
acquainted with your drug store in Ann Arbor.
