Defeat Egley and Burtis In Final of
Doubles by Close
Redfern, winner of the singles, and
Shields won the summer tennis chain-
pionship by defeating Egley and Burtis
by the score of 6-3, 2-4, and 6-4, last
Tuesday afternoon on Ferry Field. A
racquet was presented to Redfern, and
a dozen tennis balls to Shields by the
management of the tourney as the
The contest was only decided after
three hard fought sets, in which Egley
and Shields played exceedingly fast
and consistent., Shields returned sev-
eral fast serves that turned the last
set into a victory. Redfern and Burtis
showed good team work, but their
playing was not as spectacular as
their team mates.
A few spectators witnessed the cos-
Ig exhibition.
Authorized to Make Arrangements for
Care of Books Until A. L. A.
Erects Buildings
F. L. D. Goodrich, reference 11
brarian of the University, has been
made associate chairman for Michigan
committee on war library service. Mr.
Goodrich has been authorized to visit
the cangp at Battle Creek at once and
make the best temporary arrange-
monts possible for the care of books
until the American Library Associa-
tion libraries can be erected and
equipped. This will probably result
in the care and distribution of books
by the Y. M. C. A.
Mr. Goodrich is also urged to insti-
tute a vigorous campaign to collect
every book available in the state to
tide over the situation until the Amer-
ican Library Association can estab-
lish more permanent library facilities.
A circular has been issued on this
subject and is ready for distribution.
Librarian Cleavinger of Jackson pub-
lic library and W. W. Bishop will prob-
ably accompany Mr. Goodrich to Bat-
tie Creek.

Homoeopathic hospital. Reports from
the hospital this morning state that
Mr. Nickels is rapidly recovering and
will be raised in a couple of weeks.

Union to Launch
Campaign Drive
Mill Endeavor to Gel tenscainder of
Million Dollar Fund in Next
An enormous drive for $210,000 will
be carried on in 100 different cities be-
tween the 15th of September and the
30th of October by various committees
of the Michigan Union. Among the
larger cities, New York, Pittsburg, De-
troit, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Mil-
waukee and Minneapolis have all sig-
nified their intentions of taking up
the work and of making a supreme ef-
fort to bring the building fund up to
the million dollar mark in this final
The original plan of the campaign
was conceived in October, 1909, but it
was not until seven years later that
an attempt to raise money began. y
that time the alumni of the University
had been educated to the point where
they could appreciate the value of the
Union in an institution of this nature
and where they realized that it must
have more suitable quarters if it was
to be to the students and alumni all
that it was intended to be. That
campaign resulted in the raising of a
fund of $790,000. Now, two years lat-
er, while the building is in process of
erection they are going out for the
rest of the money needed. Some of'
Michigan's most important alumni are
identified with this movement. Presi-
dent Hutchins has been active in the
work of raising funds and is now
engaged in organization work. Dean
Bates of the Law school is chairman
of the campaign committee.
A new issue of the Campus News
Notes is being prepared for the Uni-
versity by the Michigan Union press.
It will be sent out of Ann Arbor short-
ly after the first of September and will
pave the way for the campaign as it
will contain, besides the usual items
of campus interest, illustrations show-
ing the progress of the new Michigan
Union building.
Gardening Class Under Prof. Pollock
Gives Food Stuff to University
Squashes, beets, corn, and carrots,
all planted after the summer session
began, will be the contribution of Prof
J. C. Pollock's classes in vegetable
gardening to the University this year.
The members of the class planted their
garden plots on the edge of the old
cathole. The gardens did much better
than was expected, furnishing delect-
able spreads for the members of the
class, and will also provide a consid-
erable amount of appetizing food for
the patients of the Unversity hospital.
Ietroit Librarian Visiting in City
Miss Golda M. Thompson, graduate

troit Public Library is visiting friends

of work last Saturday morning. A
third course will probaby be given im-

The exact schedule for the military
science and tactics courses under
Lieutenant Mullen have not as yet
been arranged for by the committee
of schedules. Each student enrolling
in this division will be furnished prop-
er equipment by the United States, al-
though the uniforms will be made of
different material than the regulation
army suits, due to the extreme short-

'9 Registration
Tent Abandoned
Freshmen Advisory Station to Occupy
Basement of New Building
This Fall
The large registration tent of the
University Y. M. C. A. has been used
for the last time. For many years this
tent has been seen annually at the
time the students arrive in Ann Arbor

men advisory station and first aid in
securing rooms and employment. But
this fall, the large white tent will be
replaced by the new Y. M. C. A. build-
ing itself. The basement doors will be
thrown open and the entire ground
floor converted into a first aid station
for freshmen.,
Mr. Fetter will be back from his va-
cation about Sept. 17 and Mr. Peck,
the employment secretary, will be in
Ann Arbor about the first of Septem-
ber to make advance preparations for
an unusually successful campaign.

Negotiations between Coach "Hurry-
Up" Yost, different colleges and uni-
