Temporary Structure Better Fitted to
Needs of Students Than
Old Residence
Temporary headquarters of the
Michigan Union have been established
this year in the new building at the
rear end of the Union lot. This tem-
porary building is formed by uniting
the old Pond residence and the dance
hall which stood at the back of the old
Union and makes a much more com-
fortable home for the students.
In the portion which was formerly
the old Pond residence lounging quar-
ters for the men are established and
the reading racks and cigar stand,
the feature of the old Union office,
are now in use. Back of this main
room are found cloak rooms and lava-
tories. The whole is newly finished
and decorated, forming a pleasing
place to spend an afternoon or even-
On the right as one enters the build-
ing is found the office of the president
and a short corridor leads to the dance
hall. This has been fixed over, the
main improvement. being that the
music for dances will be given from
an alcove on the right of the room and
not from the elevated platform at the
front of the hall as formerly. The
ladies' dressing rooms are placed
back of the short entrance hall so
that one can pass directly from them
into the dance hall. These are all
fitted with new equipment.
Upstairs are the men's cloak rooms
and offices for the general secretary.
These are all refitted and form a
pleasing contrast to the somewhat
dingy quarters occupied in the old
Downstairs the improvements are
easily seen. There are three dining
rooms instead of two. Two of these
are for general use while the third,
which has been panelled and beamed
off so as to give more privacy to the
diners, will be used for large ban-
quets. The number that can be ac-
commodated at meals has been doubl-
ed. The kitchen has been increased
in size and a pastry chef has been
added to the list.
In accordance with its custom of
former years the Union will serve
dinners to ladies Saturday nights and
Sunday noon and nights. * It will be
open to members for breakfast, dinner,
and luncheon every day.

ie increased area in the basement
accommodate approximately 4,000
lockers. At present 2,000 lockers
installed and 500 additional steel
ers have been ordered to meet the
easing demand. This will be par-
arly good news to last year's stu-
s, many of whom were unable to
re lockers, due to the scarcity and
estion. In fact many freshmen
entered last February had to
pone their gym work and physical
ling due to the inadequacy of the
in this particular. The new lock-
are connected with with the ven-
ng system, whereby each locker
ves air under forced pressure.

special room has been construct-
n the east end for the new hand-
courts, so that the players will
onger have to hunt for the ball
r the lockers as was formerly'
ssary on the old open courts. The
ber of courts has been increased

struction for the present until an ad-
ditional appropriation is granted by
the regents.
The new outdoor track feature which
was constructed last year will be used
extensively this year in connection
with the physical training.
The apparatus for the new gym will
be purchased as needed upon the ad-
vice of =Dr. May. Basketball and other
games will prove bigger features this
year than before.
City Ordinances to be Announced
Chief of Police O'Brien states that
the laws governing the muzzling of
dogs, and those prohibiting the rid-
ing of bicycles on the sidewalks of
both the city and the campus will be
stated fully next week and that they
will hereafter be strictly 'enforced.
