iates, students of the summer session

for ten years held the position of
stewart at the Michigan Union head-

months the Union stewart will hold
the position of assistant stewart at

The seniors who are located at Ft.
Sheridan were not favored with a
similar leave of absence to attend the
exercises in Ann Arbor, but plans havec
ieen made by 100 Michigan alumni of1
Chicago to hold their commencement-
exercises at the University club in
that city on June 30. The number of
Michigan men at Ft. Sheridan will be
decreased considerably in a few days.
since approximately 300 men will h
transferred to Sparta, Wisconsin,
owing to the lack of proper range for
heavy artillery work.
To keep apace with its wider stu-
ient activities and functions, the
Michigan Union will have one of the
University's spirited alumni to take
charge of all the student activities next
year. Francis M. Bacon, '02, is ached-
leid to fill the newly created office,
according to information just given out
by Homer Heath, secretary and man-
ager of the Union.
Mr. Bacon is at present state chair-
man of the intercollegiate intelligence
hureas, and is taking an active part
in that work. During the years of
1909-1911 he was a member of the fac-
ulty of the history department. Mr.
Bacon has always taken a great in-
terest in student activities, and since
the new Union plans to be the center
of student life hereafter, it is believed
by those in charge that Mr. Bacon
will be a valuable addition to the
Union's officers in accomplishing that
The University Y. M. C. A., located
in its new home in Lane hall, offers
its numerous advantages and com-
fortable rooms to the students of the
summer session.
The employment bureau, which has
secured positions and odd jobs for
students in past years, will be con-
ducted by J. W. Peck, newly appointed
employment secretary. Students de-
siring employment during the summer
are urged to register at the employ-
ment offices, designating the kind of
work they are besa suited for and the
time they can spare for such labor.
The reading rooms will be open dur-
ing the entire summer session and vis-
iting alumni are invited to inspect the
new building during the rest of their
stay in the city.
At the present time the debt in-
curred by the construction of the new
building has been nearly erased.
