Substantial progress is being made
on all construction work under the
supervision o}the ' buildings and
grounds committee of the University,
including remodeling of the president's

Work of remodeling the president's
residence on the campus is to be com-
pleted the latter part of this month,
according to -present plans, and the
building will be ready for occupancy
by President Burton and family the
first of August.
A sun parlor, dining porch, sleeping
porch and garage with maids' rooms
above, have been built. The old por-
tton of the structure has been replas-
tered throughout, a new roof put on,
and new floors laid. In order to make
the basement of sufficient depth, the
basement floor was lowered about a
Six new class rooms will be provid-
Qd on the second floor of the main
wing of University hall by improve-
ments which are just being started.
The rearrangement ,will reduce the
size of the auditorium in the hall, but
it is planned to have a seating ca-
pacity for not less than 800 in the
auditorium when the work is finished.
More Room Needed
Need of additional class rooms in
the building has become constantly
more pressing with the fast increasing
enrollment of the University. The
work will be completed in time for the
rooms to be available for use at the
opening of the fall session.
Delay in shipment of materials for
the Betsy Barbour dormitory retarded
construction for nearly two months,
but the work is being pushed rapidly
now. The heating plant has been in-
stalled, and most of the plumbing is
finished. The dormitory will be open
by early fall.
The frame work of the new nurses'
home -under construction near the
University hospital, is now being put
up. The home is to be completed in
Installation of the new 600 kilowatt
turbine for the University power plant
has been started. A system to soften
the water used in the boilers at the
plant is to be put in soon, in order to
eliminate the difficulties that have
arisen in past winters on account of
the use of hard water in the boilers.

PRACTICAL JOKER MISCUES;
NO WOLVERJNE EXTRA ISSU
Same Fate for League Plank
The Bryan League of Nations plank
shared the same fate, going out in a
great chorus- of "Noes."
A plank for a commission' to investi-
gate the feasibility of a soldier bonus
also was rejected without a roll call.
The substitute Irish plank declaring,
it is the purpose of the nation to rec-
ognize the independence of the Irish
republic also was voted down by the
convention by a vote of 402% for to
Bryan, with one of his old-time
speeches in support of a bone-dry
plank for the Democratic platform,
turned -the convention almost upside
down late yesterday afternoon with
the magnetism and force of his ora-
tory, and started one of ,the greatest
and noisiest demonstrations the assem-
bly had yet seen.
Some practical joker informed the
Aan Arbor public yesterday -that Pres-
ident Wilson was dead, and in the
course of the day*the story traveled
over the entire city. Someone phoned
The Wolverine, representing himself
to be the Associated Press, and gave
the story to a man in the office.
However, the would-be joker was
apparently ignorant of the fact that
The Wolverine carries no Associated
Press reptrts, consequently being in
no position to receive such a message,,
and that if the story did come it would
be throug ha long-distance call from
Detroit, where the Associated Press is,
and not through a local call.
Unfortunately for hisjoke, The Wol-
verine did not ruch out an extra nor
call up the citizens promiscuously.
One or two inquirers were informed
that a report, which could not'be con-
firmed anywhere, had come over the
