VOLUNTARY ORGANIZATIONS The students have organized efficient societies for devotional meetings and aggressive religious labor: the Young Women's Christian League, the Young Men's Christian Association, the Evangelistic Band of the Divinity School, the Brownson Club, and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.
THE UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT The Board of the University of Chicago Settlement is incorporated and owns a building and lots worth about $13,000. A new residence, with ample halls and clubrooms, has recently been completed at a cost of about $30,000. The Board is regarded as the Philanthropic Committee of the Christian Union, and reports to the Union. To maintain the work the Board depends upon the voluntary offerings of Faculty, students, and friends of the University. The new Settlement house and the gymnasium are at 4630 Gross Avenue. The Head Resident is Miss MARY E. McDowELL.

THE REYNOLDS CLUB The clubhouse is a gift of the late Joseph Reynolds through his executor, Mr. Joy Morton, and forms one of the Tower Group of buildings. The entrance doors open on a stair-hall which is a reminder of old English stairhalls of the Elizabethan period of architecture. To the left is a large reading-room, 36 feet wide and 68 feet long. To the right is the billiard room. The second story contains the reception room, club rooms for various student organizations, etc. The third story also contains club rooms, the steward's
room, and servants' room, etc. The principal feature of the third floor is the assembly room, which is used for dances and for informal social affairs. The trusses of the roof are of open timber work of sycamore. At the north end of the assembly room is a small stage. The main rooms in the first and second stories have paneled wainscoting and beam-ceilings of oak. The friezes in the library and billiard room were designed after a careful study of wall decorations and applied designs in old stuffs and brocades of the period. The walls and ceilings in the main rooms on the second floor are treated in weathered plaster, the fireplace in the hall receiving some color. The small theater on the third floor has a painted tapestry-effect curtain representing a fête-day in mediaeval times. In the basement are the bowling-alleys, barber shop, and check room. The building is provided with all known modern improvements. The aim throughout-in the color, furniture, draperies, and rugs—was to introduce nothing but what the splendid architecture seemed to demand for its completion.
With the aim of promoting unity and a sentiment of equality among the men of the University, more than a year before the opening of the Reynolds Club in October, 1903, a constitutional commission so broadly organized as to embrace every element of student activity among the men of the University, was created, composed of fifty-eight students and nine members of the faculty. This commission prepared a constitution which was approved by the Board of Student Organizations and the University Council. The form of government provided for in this instrument aims to give simultaneous and due expression to the activities of the men students and to the interests of the University. The executive authority of the club is vested in an executive council composed of the five officers of the club, who are annually elected by the active members, and two members of the faculty appointed by the Board of Student Organizations. All men who are students of the University in residence are eligible to active membership upon payment of moderate quarterly dues ($2.00); any officer of the University, or former. member thereof, is eligible to associate membership, thereby enjoying all the privileges of an active member save the right to vote and to hold office, upon payment of $3.00 a year.
The officers of the Reynolds Club for the year 1909-10 are the following: President, Winston Patrick Henry, 1910; Vice-President, Mansfield Ralph Cleary, 1910; Secretary, Earle Albert Goodenow, 1910; Treasurer, William Lucas Crawley, 1911; Librarian, Harry Osgood Latham, 1910.
