New SU to Include
Facilities for Culture
(This is the third of eight articles
on the Erb Memorial Union. Next
Monday’s article will cover the stu
dent offices that will be found in
the new union building.)
By GENE ROSE
If it’s culture you want the Erb
Memorial Union has it.
A complete library browsing
room, an art gallery, two phono
graph listening rooms, and a piano
practice room are the cultural fea
tures of the new student union
building. All of these facilities are
on the upper floors.
At the North end of the building
and facing the infirmary is the Ad
elaide Church Memorial Room
presently found in the campus lib
rary. When this room is ready for
occupancy the entire furnishings
and collection of the browsing room
will be transferred to the student
union. The rooms are identical in
size and construction.
Near the center of the building
and facing University Street is the
art gallery, which will be easily
reached by the Memorial’s stairs.
The gallery has been designed with
emphasis on simplicity of decora
tion and design. The lighting has
been arranged to afford the best
display of exhibited articles.
Exhibits for the gallery will in
clude both traveling and student
works in arts and crafts.
The two phonograph listening
rooms are designed in a living room
style with custom made players
which will play all types and sizes
of records. It will be possible to
broadcast the recording through
out the building or in the browsing
room alone. Records for the rooms
will be supplied by the Student
A piano practicing room, which
is almost soundproof, will be found
next to the west side listening
room. A new Baldwin piano has
been purchased for the room, which
has been finished in a pastel blue.
No charge will be made for the
use of any cultural facilities.

Follows Plan of Other Colleaes
Designed to improve faculty
student relationships on the cam

Student Firesides was held last
night at the home of F. E. Dart,
professor of physics.
Twenty students attended the
fireside and discussed informally
both national and local problems.

wishes or ideas to other*- students,
let alone to any of the government
officials who are responsible for
the good and bad in government.”
Prof. Dart replied in response to

which they are affected,” the pro
