the recent G.I. Stomps. Women
may work in ticket booths in the
lobby under special permission.
Women may also enter to buy bus
tickets at the main desk.
7. Women may be admitted for
special meetings, such as those of
the Student Legislature and com-
mittee meetings.
8. Between the hours of 10:30
a.m. to 6 p.m. women, if accom-
panied by Union members, may be
shown through the building. How-

wise, the Union and all its facilities
are for men only.

The Michigan League building
was erected in 1929, following an
extensive fund raising campaign
conducted by 'University women
and alumnae so that both alum-
nae and students, mighthhave a
center for alumnae and student
- organizations.' The campaign be-
gan early in 1921 when under-
graduates and the Alumnae Coun-
cil decided to undertake the res-
ponsibility for sponsoring a build-
The Board of Regents voted to
grant the land later that year, and
the sum of one million dollars was
set as the goal of the fund raising
A committee of undergraduate wo-

men was established in 1922 to raise
funds on campus. Projects were es-
tablished and the proceeds were giv-
en to the building fund. During the
year 1922-23, $7,950 were raised. All
plays, cabarets, church and League
bazaars, and special projects made
donations to the fund.
Letters to alumnae yielded over
$100,000' for the building, and in
1926, representatives went back to
all alumnae groups to complete the
million dollar quota. Finally in
1929, the League became a reality,
and the design was executed by
the Pond and Pond firm of Chica-
The Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
was erected at the same time, but is
under.an entirely separate organiza-
tion headed by a University com-
mittee. It has its own Board of Gov-
ernors which administers its policies.
Every Univeresity coed is automati-
cally a member of the League, and is
urged to use all facilities.
