plnces add to the dignity and repose of
this most inviting section of the building.
There are long lines of reading desks
stocked with the periodic literature of the
day. There is an abundance of the easi
est of easy chairs. There arc plenty of
quiet nooks where the reader may be
come a recluse for the time being.
' On the western end of the main hall
is found the billiard, pool, and chess
rooms, and on the south front the busi
ness offices of the club, cloak room, and,
opposite, news stand and toilet room.
Two oaken stairways lead to the second
floor where the first feature to attract is
the immense fur of a grizzly, head inuct,
huge teeth and murderous claws juuch in
evidence. The second-floor hallway is
almost as spacious as the one below. Its
walls are adorned with excellent prints
and photographs from works of famous
artists, The furniture is rich and sump

quartered white oak, and has a high
wainscoat and heavily timbered roof. At
the north end is a proscenium arch and
stage at the back of which is a large pipe
"On the western end of this second
floor the athletic association, the Y. M.
C. A., the guest chamber, mid bookstore
are clustered, and the main room in front

dences of victories on "flood and field,"
won in early and recent date. The third
floor is divided into numerous offices, so
ciety and committee rooms. The quarters
of university's daily and monthly jour
nals, a dark room for the camera club, a
unique music room furnished with a pi
ano, halls of the professional school soci
eties, are on this floor. The basement of
the club house contains a gymnasium,
swimming pool, baths, barber shop,
bowling alley, and cafe."
This description, with which I have
taken some liberties, although a trifle
pompous in style, is on t whole just.
Perhaps the best feature of Houston
club is that all these advantages may be
enjoyed by any student of the university
for dues amounting to only two dollars a
year. Of course there is extra charge for
special service, and charges for such of
the privileges as demand, but these are
It may be of interest that Pcnn's fa
mous trainer "Mike" Murphy is a
haunter of the chess tables at Houston
hall. Another evidence that scholarship
and athletics go hand in hand.
