Architectural Design of New "Y"
Building Is Georgian English;
Decorating Unique
Lane hall, the new building of the
Y. M. C. A., which will be formally
opened at 7:30 o'clock next Friday
evening, is a splendid example of
beauty combined with utility. ,
In general, the interior decorative
scheme of Lane hall is in light, plain
wall tints, while simple hangings and
rugs have been selected.
Nearly a dozen war posters, of the
present great struggle, form the dec-
orative element of the large social
room. Some of therestartistic talent
of England and France has lent it-
self to this work. A portion of the
pictures were obtained through the
permission of the government officials
at Ottawa, and others direct from the
French and English authorities. In the
other rooms of the building emphasis
has been laid upon the scenery of this
country by enlarged views of fea-
tures in some of the great national
Building Finished in Oak
The. building is furnished through-
out very simply, mainly in oak, but of
carefully selected design. Interesting
mantels and attractive furniture gives
a home-like atmosphere. The build-
ing is primarily laid out with an ar-
rangement which has one large room
on each floor for the various gather-
ings. On the main floor is a large
lobby, nearly 25 by 50 feet, with the
various business and administration
offices opening out of it. A. library is
located on the south end. The struc-
ture also contains a dining room,
sleeping apartments, a living room,
a lobby and a club and social room.
Fireproof Structure
With the exception of the roof, the
structure is absolutely fireproof. The
exterior scheme is decidedly simple,
being built along the lines of Georg-
ian English. Two pineapple topped
posts at the street line and on each
side of the walk up to the steps form
a dignified approach to the attractive
stone front entrance.
English Designs
All the stone cutting and other me-
chalical work is carefully executed
and adds to the effectiveness of the
structure. The brick work, of the
old fashioned type, laid up in wide
joints with alternative long and short
brick, further recalls the best type of
English work, while the large, high
chimneys, slate roof, iron grilles in
front of windows, are clear cut and
emphasize the feeling of that period.
The arrangement of terrace and
sunken area, giving the finest light
into the basement, is particularly ef-
fective and unique. Vines and shrub-
bery will be planted around the build-
ing, as well as a number of trees in
the parkway.
Organize Class for Poor Spellers
Pasadena, Cal., Feb. 27.-There's a
decided improvement in orthography
among the pupils of the South Pasa-
dena high school, as a result of the
"hospital class" established by Super-
intendent G. C. Bush. The remarkable
quickness with which students of the
institution now reel off "procrastina-
tion," "chrysanthemum" and other
sticklers is causing other high school
boards to consider adopting similar
Finding high school students were
woefully deficient in spelling, and
really poorer spellers than pupils in
the intermediate grades, Bush estab-

lished the "hospital class" for students
falling below a certain average in

Red Paint Tails
To Cover Old Age
Ancient Steam Engine Wheezes Along,
But Still Develops
It may be old but yet there is some
good in it. Thirty years ago the
Allise-Chalmers company shipped a
35 horse power steam motor to the
University for running an electric gen-
Upto a few years ago this engine
was in the old boiler house covered
with dust that had accumulated on it
for some time. When the power plant
was moved to its new position, Prof.
J. E. Emswiler decided to transfer the
old side crank apparatus into the me-
chanical laboratory for experimental
In moving the head end of the cyl-
inder was cracked and it was found
that the only means of repairing was
by welding, which was not altogether
The engine was assembled in the
basement- of the laboratory and given
a coat of bright red paint. Last Mon-
day the first test was applied to the
wreck in order to determine its me-
chanical efficiency and steam consump-
tion for brake horse power. Although
the engine had served its time it still
showed a mechanical efficiency of
nearly 90 per cent.
While testing, a wheeze could be
heard during every stroke, due to the
imperfect cylinder head, and sounded
as though the motor was complaining
of its age in spite of its bright red
coat of paint.
Equip Room in Barbour Gymnasium
Witih Hospital Cot and Ma-
terial for Construction



With a present registration of over
100, the Red Cross classes in first aid
and home nursing have been organ-
ized into eight groups for instruction.
A room in Barbour gymnasium and
the sewing room in Newberry resi-
dlence will be equipped with a hos-
pital bed and all the necessary ma-
terial for instruction. More room will
be provided later if the need arises.
Dr. C. B. de Nacrede, Dr. H. H. Cum-
mings, Dr. Lucy Boland, and Dr. J.
C. Solis will give the instruction in
first aid. Until arrangements for Red
Cross nurse who will give her full
time to the instruction are made, the
instruction in home nursing will be
given by Miss Price of the University
health service.
Both courses will include both the-
oretical and practical instruction. The:
course in first aid will deal with the
treatments of all sorts of fractures,
wounds, and general injuries. The
course in home nursing and simple
hygiene will present instruction in the
principles of hygiene, the preparation
of food and clothing for army use, the
sterilization of hospital equipment.
At the mass meeting Tuesday even-
ing at which the groups were organ-
ized, Dr. de Nancrede and Dean Victor
C. Vaughan talked on the general
phases of the work to be attempted
and the results accomplished by the
Red Cross in the present war.
The work of the courses will be
started the first part of next week.

ment. The two in combination will

an incomparable joint recital.

At its March meeting, the Board in
Control of Student Publications will
choose a business manager and man-
aging editor for the Wolverine, and a
business manager for the Athletic
Program. It is the policy of the board
in filling the positions on the publi-
cations under its control, to award
them on the basis of merit to those
who have served in minor positions on
the publications to which the posi-
tions pertain.
It sometimes happens, however, that
no one who has served on the publica-.
tions during the year is eligible or
capable of, filling one of the leading
positions for the ensuing year. When
such circumstances arise, the board
finds it necessary to consider out-
side candidates. This notice should
not be considered as an intimation
that these circumstances will arise
this year.
All applications for these positions
should be in the hands of Professor
F. N. Scott, on or before February 28,
in order to be considered. Each appli-
cation should contain a statement of
the experience of the applicant and
should be accompanied by the appli-
cant's eligibility card and any letters
of recommendation which he may
