Meeting to Commemorate Tenth i
Anniversary of League
of Nations.


Full Credit Will Probably be
Given Here for Any
Foreign Course.
Spanish Students Have Special
Advantage in Learning
The Language.
University students who desire to
contrast the warmth of tropical
summer with the arctic cold of Ann
Arbor winters, and are accordingly
planning to join the large number
of American students who annually
attend the special summer session
of the University of Mexico, will be
interested in the following an-
nouncement made yesterday by
Dean John R. Effinger of the liter-
ary college.
"All requests forkthe recognition
of credit for work taken in the
summer session of the University of
Mexico will be given most respect-
ful consideration and credits will
be given under theusual regula-
tions that they must be recom-
mended by the departments of in-
struction interested."
Will Be Tenth Year.
Probability of full credit being
given for work taken at the Mexi-
can school is said to add anotherI
attraction to the combined facilities
of augmented faculty and beautiful
scenery of which the directors have
boasted for the past ten years.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
recently received the following let-,
ter from Juilo Jiminez Rueda, di-
rector of the school:
"The national University of Mex-
ico takes the opportunity of an-
nouncing its tenth annual summer
session to tell its friends, the uni-
versities of North and Central
America, of the great pleasure and
satisfaction of the University au-
thorities feel in looking forward to
the annual visits of foreign students
to its halls of study.
In the course of the nine years
since its founding, the summer
school has surpassed its original ob-y
ject--that of affording teachers of
Spanish in the United States a more
efficacious means of learning and
practicing our language-and has
come to be a medium for a mutual
understanding and abond of union
between the intellectual people of
North and Central America and
those of Mexico.
Catalogues Available.
Catalogues of the courses of
study will be mailed to interested
students from the headquarters of
the University of Mexico at Ribera
de San Cosme 71, Mexico, D. F., it
is announced.
W. L. Willey, of the German de-
partment, has attended the Uni-
versity of Mexico summer session,
and pronounces it to be at once
interesting and valuable.


On the tenth anniversary of the
founding of the League of Nations,
a meeting is to be held to discuss
it under the title "The Tenth
S .s :.Birthday of the Living Corpse" on
January 10 at 4:15 o'clock in the
Natural Science auditorium.

According to Professor Rosseau,i
the problem offered great oppor-
tunity for the artist. "The magni-
tude, location, and significance of
the memorial," he said, "are three
ideal conditions seldom found in
one problem.
"The designer was faced with two
possibilities: either to create aj
composition in scale with Grant
Park, well open toward the city
from where it may best be seen,
which would shut out to a certain
extent a part of the view of Lake
Michigan; or to designe aong lower
and more seclusive lines which
would give the monument a privacy
more suited to the memory of an
individual than to that of the sons
of this middle western metropolis."
This is not the first time that
Professor Rousseau's name has ap-
peared among the leaders in such:
a competition. His design received
honorable mention in the Chicago
Tribune Tower competition, in*
which renowned architects from
22 countries participated.
