Summarizing, the activities of the
Women's league during the Summer
session, Mrs. W. D. Henderson, exe-
cutive secretary of the Alumnae
Council, yesterday gave out prospec-
tive plans of the League to complete
the million dollar quota necessary be-
fore actual work on the proposed
League building can be begun.
Under the supervision of Mrs. Hen-
derson, assisted by Mrs. Max Williams,
the summer has proved fairly success-
ful, with plans for the coming fall and
winter very bright.
On March 1, Mrs. Henderson took
over the completion of the million dol-
lar fund which the Women's leagueI
had promised to raise by June 1927.1
At that time the League had a half
million dollars in pledges. It was nec-
essary to raise the other half million
dollars, in pledges, or lose the site

gents had promised if a million dol-

separate from gifts in order that the
League may say to anyone making a,
gift that every cent goes into the
building and not one cent to over-
head expenses. The Ann Arbor busi-
ness men have underwritten the first
$5000 of the expense account. This
will care, for expenses until Septem-
ber 15, after which date it will be
necessary to make other plans to carry
this account until June. Every dol-
lar given for expenses means that
much more placed from the interest
account to the fund proper.
University women are doing their
share for the most part by taking out
life memberships which are $50 each,
to be paid within three years. The
pledge is the important thing. because
it is necessary to report the million
dollars not in cash but in pledges. In
addition to these pledges smaller con-
tributions are being made all the time,
not counting the larger gifts. This
summer for the first time a campaign
was held for the summer students.

TO GRANT DEGREES
Courses have been designed and a
faculty has been appointed for the
newly authorized Department of Lib-
rary Science to be instituted this fall
at the University. A two-year curricu-
lum will be offered, both in connection
with undergraduate work in the col-
lege of Literature, Science, and the
Arts and in the Graduate school.
The undergraduate courses in lib-
rary science have been planned to pro-
vide college students with the train-
ing necessary to enable them to take
charge of high school and small pub-
lie libraries and to assist in the larger
ones. The graduate work is dcesigned
to fit students for the higher positions
In university and reference libraries,
Students who wish to enter the und-
ergraduate curriculum in lihra'y sci-
ence must present a minimum of 90
hours of college credit and one and
one-third as many points as hours. A
reading knowledge of French and
German or approved equivalents is
also. required, and an elementary
knowledge of high school Latin is
highly desirable.
The advanced work in library sci-
ence is open to those who have a bach-
elor's degree and one year of study in
library methods from an accredited/
college or university and library
school, a reading knowledge of French
and German, or approved equivalents,
and preferably some knowledge of
high school Latin.
Students who earn 120 hours of
credit, of which 24 are in library work,
will receive the degree of Bachelor of
Arts in Library Science. The degree
of Master of Arts in Library Science
will be given those completing 24
hours of graduate work, of which 12
or more must be in library science.

The inhabitants of Japan are nature
lovers. From childhood they are
trained to admire and reverence the
cherry tree, which is an outstanding
feature of every landscape. Primary
teachers take their classes, often over
a hundred at once, to study the trees.
Japan, in adopting the exterior civ-
ilization of the west, without experi-
ence, and often A ithout a complete
realization of its principles, has met
with many difficulties. Labor unions
are common, living conditions are
often wretched. However, rapid
j progress is being made.
When Professor Crocker went to
Japan as an instructor, he met with
many strange experiences. Upon eu-
tering his classroom for the tirst
time, the students bowed, repeatedly,
until he finally bowed deeply frm'Ol

seated themselves. He began his work
by drawing a map of the United
j States and illustrating his route of
travel.
