Total Of 24 Public Lectures Will Be
Gien yy Uiversity Professors
And European Visitors
Varied and interesting features
ranging from talks by authorities in
various fields to excursions to various
points of interest in the surroundng
country, and six weeks of stock pro-
ductions by the Rockford Players, late
of the University of Michigan and now
of Rockford, Illinois, have been ar-
ranged by the faculty of the summer
session under the direction of Dean
Edward H. Kraus. The numbers are in
general open to the public as well as
to University students, the trips to the
observatory being the only exceptions.
These are limited to members of the
University student body only.
A total of 21 public lectures by mem-
hers of the faculty of the University
and by three visiting professors from
Europe are announced in the program.
The subjects which will be treated
deal with political questions, with
Journeys in various parts of the world,
and with problems of art and of liv-
ing. They have all of them been chosen
tor their wide appeal and for the re-
lation which they have to the compre-
hensive work of the summer session.
The whole program has been arranged
so that there is something for the en-
tertainment of those attending sum-
mer school, every afternoon and eve-
ning from Friday through Thursday
night. The time from Friday noon
until Monday afternoon has been left
vacant for arrangements.
Players To Be Here
The Rockford Players, under the
joint auspices of the Summer session
and the Alumnae Council will present
six weeks of stock productions with a
reportoire extending from Michael Ar-
len to William Shakespeare. Other

Frederick Lonsdale with his "Aren't
We All?" George Bernard Shaw with
"Fanny's First Play", Noel Coward
with "Hay Fever", and S'am Benelli

featured the series of plays but re-
cently completed. Among the actors
are Robert Henderson, and Amy Loo-
mis, who achieved fame on the cam-
pus for their work in dramatics, Rey-
nolds Evans, late of the company of

Kearns and Charles Brokaw, favorites
in stock in the middle west. The plays
will be presented every Monday, Tues-
day, Thursday and Saturday evening

League Building Fund.
