DEAN ON UNIVERSITY NEEDS
Miss Ensign Discussed the Three
Quarter Mill Levy Suggests
Use for Part of It.
One favorable aspect of the action
of our last legislature In appropriating
for the use of the University three
quarters of a mill levy is that, al
though the two branches of the house
could not agree as to the wisest policy
for University expansion, both were
sufficiently interested in the welfare
of the institution to bo unwilling to
postpone for two years provision for
Along what line development will be
encouraged by the first expenditures
for equipment will be a matter of In
terest and much discussion among stu
dents and faculty.
There is great need for added class
room and laboratory space but at pres
ent there is an even greater lack of
provision for the activities outside of
Just what the ideal proportion of
these activities in student life would
be Is easily open to debate. That they
are important and should rightly have
a place in it, is hardly to be ques
tioned. Residence halls, a club house for
men, a swimming tank, an auditorium
in which real mass meetings might
be held and a woman's building would
be desirable aids to the wholesome
campus life outside of the classroom
The three-quarters of a mill levy
cannot give all of this or of much oth
er desirable equipment but certainly
Home of it should go to meet these
needs of student life.
The woman of the school may rea
sonably hope that a building for their
use will be one of the early fruits of
the increased appropriation. Such a
building could provide rest rooms, par

culture, indoor athletics and certain

large social affairs, a girls' club room
and a dining room.
A quiet, airy room where an hour or
even a half hour of rest would be pos
sible would relieve much over-strain
for the strong as well as for the weak
er girl. At least one such room should
belong to the department of physical
education. The advantages of a wo
man's gymnasium, if possible having
adjacent gound for out-door sports, are
Appreciation of unity of interest
and action without loss of Individuality
would grow among those meeting nat
urally from day to day In sports, about
the dining table, or around the parlor
hearths. A truer democracy would
come through the opportunity for a
more varied association, a better
chance to know some of one's neigh
bors. Unconsciously the Girls' Club with
Buch a home would more nearly fulfill
Its chief purposes
To offer an opportunity for a
friendly, helpful fellowship among the
women of the school.
To develop a feeling of mutual re
sponsibility and a high regard for both
liberty and order. Alice Balrd Ensign.
