Dances Are Activities
Climaxing fifteen years of activity
on campus, the Michigan chapter of
Hillel Foundation will move this
summer into new quarters at the
corner of Haven and Hill streets.
The new house will be open to stu-
dents at the beginning of the fall
term, Rabbi Jehudah M. Cohen, di-
Considerably closer to campus
than the old Foundation, the new
house is also much larger and has
spacious grounds. It has a large rec-
reation room in the basement, and
full kitchen facilities will be provid-
ed. Rooms will be available for clas-
ses and meetings.
At present, the house is being com-
pletely remodeled, redecorated and
relandscaped through the efforts of
the Women's Auxiliary of the B'nai
B'rith District Grand Lodge. The
Grand Lodge is also responsible for
The Michigan chapter of Hillel was
founded in 1927. When it moved into
its present quarter at 1102 Oakland,
it was the first Foundation in the
country to have its own building.
Since that time it has grown until
the house is unable to accommodate
the numbers of students who attend
services on the High Holy Days and
Friday evening discussions.
Hillel, with a membership of about
900 last year, is the largest sectarian
crganization on the Michigan cam-
pus. It is largely student governed
by a Student Council elected by pro-
portional representation and an ;ap-
pointed student director. Last year's
co-directors Robert Warner, '43,. and
David Crohn, '43, will probably be
back to serve this year.
In addition to Holy Day services.
the Foundation holds regular con-
servative services on Friday nights
and reform services Sunday morning.
Friday evening services are regularly
followed by lectures or forum discus-
sions on current affairs.
Hillel's collection of classical rec-
ords is one of the largest on campus.
The new house will contain a music
room, as well as a large room to
house its extensive library.
The Foundation annually sponsors
a Fall Dance, a Spring Play, and a
Spring Formal. Last year, in line with
its all-out participation in defense
activities, a stunt show, Hillelzapop-
pin, was substituted for the play, and
gross proceeds were donated to relief
organizations and the Bomber Schol-
arship Fund. The formal also con-
tributed to the fund, while fifty sol-
diers from Forta Custer were special
guests at the Fall Dance.
Hillel also sponsors a Choral Group
and a dramatic group, the Hillel.
Players, and publishes a monthly

One Of Finest
In The Nation
Housing over a million books and

gan General Library is considered
one of the finest in the country. Stu-
dy and research center of the Uni-
versity, it stands in the heart of the
campus, available for use by all stu-
dents and faculty members.
Prof. Warner G. Rice is director of.

to the main building, has many
smaller branches of specialized Vol-
umes located at various points
around the campus.
The. main building, which, wa,,
opened in 1920, has seats for about
1000 persons in its numerous reading

Because of the vast numbers of
books, the stack system of obtaining
books is used. A student goes to the
card catalog on the second floor, cop-
ies the name and classification num-
ber on a special form sheet and pre-
sents it at the main desk. Special
stck boys find his book and send it
