Literary find Graduate Colleges Make
Aalns But Enginieerirg.
School Loses

Registration in all schools and col-
leges, with the exception of the grad-
uate school, closed yesterday, the to-
tal enrollment being slightly lower
than that of last year. Those who
register beginning today will be fined
$5 for delinquency and $1 for late
classificatioi. Registration and lass-
ification in the graduate school will
continue all this week. An approx-
imate total taken last night indicat-
ed that the enrollment though n'ot yet
as large as the enrollment of last
year will swell to even a larger total
after all delinquent registrations are
made. A considerable number of en-
rollments were made last year after
the regular registration period was
over and it is expected this year that
a number large enough to affect the
final count -will be made during the
next three days of the week.
More Than 10000 Enroll
An approximate count of 10,891 has
been made of -the enrollment up to
this date. This number contains
those students who attended the past
Summer Session, at which 2,803 were
registered. This leaves a remainder
of 8,086 enrolled in the academic ses-
sion of the University up to closing
tfae Monday evening.
The literary college is 145 ahead
up to date with an enrollment of
4,568 against an enrollment of 4,423
up to the same date a year ago. Last
year's total enrollment in the literary
college for the first semester counting
the late delinquent registrationsnmade
after the close of -the regular period
was 4587. This year the number is
almost as great without counting the
delinquent registrations which will
be made today, tomorow and Thurs-
day. Last year there were 1,552 wom-
en enrolled in the literary college.
With the sixth day of registration
closed 1,600 wome.n have been enroll-
ed this year.
The graduate school has had an in-
crease of three over its enrollment of
a year ago. Up until this morning,
236 had enrolled, while last year the
enrollment at this time was 233. Reg-
istration and classification in the
graduate school will continue all this
A decided decrease in the number
of students enrolled in the Engineer-
ing college has manifested itself this
year. Last year 1,856 had enrolled.
This year the number has shrunk to
1,697. Such a shrinkage in the at-
tendance is probably due to the im-
proved industrial conditions through
the country and especially in the state
of Michigan. Many mills and factor-~
les have reopened, thus providing re-
markably remunerative positions for
students who otherwise would have
continued their work or would have.
enrolled for the first time in the Un!-
versity. Such a condition would nat-
urally affect the enrollment in all the
schools and colleges of the Univer-
sity but it would apply more directly
to the engineering college.
M3re Medics and Pharmiles
Attendance at the medical school
is steadily increasing with a total of
616 this year. The College of Phar-.
macy is also increasing its atteird-
ance. The enrollment in that col-
lege a year ago was 67. This year-it
boasts a total of 88 up to date.
More than 185 have registered in the
School of Education so far this year.
This is the second year of the school's
life and no record was kept day by day
of the registration last year but its
total enrollment for the year was
smaller than this year's total. This
school's comparative large enrollment
for its age during the past Summer
Session indicated its growing popu-
The dental college has an increase
in its registration, the total up to

warning on his recent ,eturn to

where he conferred with Mustapha

Director E. Mortimer Shuter Arrives
in Ann Arbor to Take Com-
plete Charge
Costumes, music, and the dance rou-
tine for the 1923 Michigan Union
Opera have all been decided upon,!
according to E. Mortimer Shuter, di-
rector of the Opera, who returned here
yesterday morning from Patchogue,
L. I., at Water Island, N. Y., where he
spent his summer vacation.
Mr. and Mrs. Lester of Chicago de-
signed the costumes for the coming
opera, and the costume plates are now,
being waited upon. This year some
of the costumes will be of radium,
cloth which the Lester people, who
have purchased the exclusive right of
using this material in the western cir-
cuit, shall supply. The use of this
material for costumes is an innovation
in the western circuit.. However, it is
used by the Ziegfield Follies and
Greenwich Village Follies.
Practice for the Opera will 'be car-
ried on to some extent this week,
though the intensive training will be-
gin next week under the direction of
Roy Hoyer, who will, as usual, di-
rect the dancing for the Opera.
While on his vacation in the East,
Mr. Shuter had a number of visitors
from the University and other parts
of the country. Among them were
George Brophy, '22L, former manag-
ing editor of The Michigan Daily, and
Deny Donovan, of the Union.
Prof. Arthur H. Blanchard of thej
highway and 'transport department
will go to Seville, Spain, next May to
attend the fourth convention of the
Permanent International Association
of Road Congresses. Professor
Blanchard has been' chosen as the
representative of the United States at
this convention.

ganied in 190 at Paris is tn nro-

Among the answers to the question
everyone is asking at this time of the
year, "What did you do this summer?"
not the least interesting is that of
Assistant Prof. Leigh J. Young of the
department of forestry. Professor
Young has just returned to Ann Ar-
bor from northern Michigan, where
he directed an experimental land ec-
onomic survey for the purpose of de-
termining the extent of the natural re-
sources of Charlevoix county.
Charlevoix county consists of ap-
proximately 260,000 acres every foot
of which was investigated and inven-
toried by the party of 25 men. The
coumty -was chosen because it of-
fered a great variety of conditions
with interest to the surveyor and in-
vestigator. A map of all the farm
land in the county, showing its rela-
tive value for various purposes, was
made. The quality and quantity of
timber standing in the countythel
amount of land deforested, the condi-!
tion and number of the county roads,
the mineral deposits, the potential
waterpower of the streams, the extentI
of swamp land and the economic con-
dition of the county in general werel
all thoroughly studied.
As a result of these investigations,
the members of the expedition are able
to report that the principal wealth of
the county lies in its attractions to
tourists-its beautiful scenery, and fine
climate. The county contains much
arable land and large timber re-
sources. Considerable limestone for use
in cement manufacture and gravel for
road building were also discovered.
So far as big game is concerned, the
'county he's little of value, but many
kinds of birds are exceedingly plenti-
ful there.
Severa other members of the Uni-
versity faculty were' in the -'party.
Prof. A. G. Ruthven, director of the
zoology museum, Carl O. Sauer, in-
structor in geography, Norman A.
wTood, curator of the zoology mu-
seum, Chester O. Wisler, instructor in
civil engineering, and Frank Lever-
ett, lecturer on glacial geology,all
spent much time investigating in their'
own field of knowledge. In addition to
these men, a representative of the
United States government was em-'
ployed in making an inventory of the
peat resources of the county.
This expedition, according to Pro-
fessor Young, was undertaken chief-
ly as an experiment, and the results
which it has achieved seem to justify
the belief in its usefulness. This is

the first time that such a compre-
hensive survey of a section of land
has been made and it is hoped that
similar investigations may be con
ducted in the future. Although the
state legislature in 1917 authorized an
appropriation for this purpose, the
outbreak of the war upset the plans
which had been made, and the expedi-
tion this year was undertaken at the
expense of the state department of
agriculture, the state department of
conservation, the Michigan* Agricul-
tural college and the University of

Enrollment figures for the summer
school for athletic coaching and ad-
ministration this year show that 91
register.ed for courses, including
more than 80 preparatory and high
school coaches and one woman, Agnes
M. -Campbell, who has been taking
baseball -at! Harvard. Thii is the
first year that' courses have been
offered in a coaching school, and ac-
cording to Coach Fielding H.- Yost,
the experiment has proved successful
in every ,way. Nineteen states in all
parts of te r ucotry aXe represented
in the enrollment and one student
came from Essex, Ontario.
The courses given this summer were
arranged especiallyfor instructors al-
ready engaged in teaching or coach
ing during the regular school year and
for others who wish to supplement
the preparation they may have re-
ceived in colleges and professional
sc~hools. The more important prob-
lems of coaching have been taken up,
and instruction in both theory and
practice, in football, basketball, base-
ball, track and field events was given.
Supervision of playground and Boy
Scout activities, organization and ad
ministration of athletics, and meth-
ods of teaching gymnastics are soie
of the other courses which have been
pursued this summer. . .
At a dinner given in the honor of
Coach Fielding Yost and his staff of
assistants by the students of the
summer coaching school at the close
of the term Coach Yost dwelt upon
the importance of the coach in rela-
tion to his students and to the com-
inunity on the whole. He said: "Ath--
