PROGRESS M.DE IT TO JUNE 20, 1917.
Expect Building to be Under Rooff
Within 26 Weeks; Tower to
be 100 Feet High
ALUMNI INSPECT STRUCTURE
Within 26 weeks the new Union
building will be under roof and the
immense tower, standing some 100
feet above the surface of State Street,
will offer an imposing birds-eye view
of the campus buildings and the entir
city. The erection of the $1 000,000
club-house will also mark the com
pletion of years of industrious andl
patient planning of one of Michigan'
Although the inner decorations and
fixtures will not be finished or hardly
be begun by that time, the major part
of construction will be completed by
early fall, and it is hoped that the
new Union structure will be in readi-
ness for active use and service not
many weeks after school has opened
for the term of 1917-1918.
jAccording to the present ceunatre
the first floor will be completed pith-
in several weeks, and it is expected
that each of the remaining floor will
be completed in about four weeks. It
is clculated that the present war
struction in various ways, but up to
0 crisis will probably hinder the con-
the present time the structure has
been making rapid progress and
should be finished within a reasonable
limit of the contract agreements.
The new building has been visited
by thousands of alumni, graduatig
seniors and their guests within the
last few days, and upon the return of
many of the visitors there is every
prediction tat the building will oter
a more than suitable center and ac-
eommodation place for all Michigan
rooms will occupy the fourth floor.
One of the features of the new struc-
ture will be the swimming pool which
will be 30 feet wide and 75 feet long.
This is the regular size for world's
swimming events, and will coni ain
109,000 gallons of water. The tank
will be emptied each day, taking some
two hours to empty the pool. Another
feature of the building will be the
section set aside for campus activity
offices. and an assembly room. In
, addition to this there will be billiard
IT Hhalls, bowling alleys, a barber sho,
and elaborate reading rooms.
Center of Student Activities
Upon completion, the new Union
building is expected to harborall tn-
dent activities and will be the center
of student life, where the students
can gather for their daily conferences.

At the present time the total amount
of money subscribed to the Michigan
Union fund amounts to $788,465.26,
thus making $211,534.74 still needed to
complete the fund. The amount paid
in of the subscriptions up to the prey-
ent time is $398,155.26. Although the
war has slackened the intensity of
the campaign and the general inter-
eat shown to some extent, those in
charge believe the total amount will
be reached and subscribed for before
long. The construction of the buils-
ing will be continued in the mean
