Union Protects -*/

Masculine Ego
Dogs, drunks and dames . . . these
are the cardinal points of the taboo,
of the Michigan Union.
But the monastery will admit th
third under certain prescribed and
rigid conditions. To protect the lasi
surviving stronghold of male suprem-
acy on the campus, these rules are in
operation:
1. The Union is a men's club, and
is therefore governed as such. The
rules regarding women are similar
to those of other men's clubs.
Z. Women may not enter the-
front door. They may enter by the
side door if they enter legally .
that is, under the conditions listed
here. Help, freight and women
must use the north entrance.
3. During Union membership
dances, the main ballroom and ad-
joining corridors are open to
women.
4. The Pendleton Library and
the basement taproom may admit
women during dances and speciala
occasions.
5. Women must remove their hats
when attending Unior dances.
G. The first floor lobby is open to
women only on football week-ends
and on special occasions, such as
the recent G.l. 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 adgitted for
special meetings, such as those of
the Student Legislature and com-
mittee meetings.
8" Between the hours of 10:30
a.m. to G p.m. women, if accom-
panied by Union members, may be
shown through the building. How-
ever, women guests may not enter
the area of the swimming pool.
The Union breaks down twice a
week and permits women's swimming
classes to be held in its pool. Other-
wise, the Union and all its facilities
are for men only.

.Thei purpose of the League Council
is to coordinate women's activities
and to direct women in campus af-
fairs, to recruit workers as they are
needed by other organizations, and
see to it that University women enter
into a well directed program of ex-
tra-curricular activities.

A'DOQRABLE COEDS-These two Michigan coeds have found the
entrance to the League a quiet place to have a chat. Usually the League
is a beehive of activity as women on the campus take advantage of its
many facilities.
League Offers Varied Facilities
TO U' Coed, Alumnae Groups

The Michigan League Building,
'ocated at the corner of N. Univer-
,ity and S. Ingalls, is the mecca of
Jniversity women's activities as well
is providing facilities for social
wvents.
Food services, which include the
1eague Grill on the main floor and
he dining room on the second floor,
were established for the use of stu-
lents, faculty, and the general pub-
lic Hotel accommodations are es-
;ecially for the use of alumnae, all
)f whom are life members of the
League, but reservations may be made
'or friends of students as well as for
visiting artists in the concert lec-
ture series.
Rooms for project and commit-
tee meetings are provided by the
League at no cost to students.
Lounge rooms, separate study
rooms, music rooms, and the third
floor League library are open to
coeds at all times. Traditionally a
women's building, men must be ac-
companied by women on the sec-
ond and third floors.
The League Ballroom, on the sec-
ond floor, is available for social
events. This year, it will house the
Campus Casbah each Friday and sat-
urday night, with an orchestra for
dancing. During the war, the ball-
room was used as a supplementary
cafeteria.
In addition to providing facilities
for general use of University women,
the building also houses the League
and Judiciary Councils in the Under-
graduate Offices on the main floor.
Assembly ' and Panhellenic Associa-
tions are headquartered on the third
floor. The Alumnae Council' and So-
cial Director's offices are also on the
main floor.
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, might have 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-
ing.
"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
campaign.
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-
go.
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.
