Says Summer Excursions Bring
Many Problems Before Students

Students in other years have re-
turned from Summer Session excur-
sions to penal institutions asking
themselves such age-old questions as
"Why does society exist?" "Is Educa-
tion worthwhile?" "Is religion essen-
tial?" "Can we cut down the social
dependents in the next generation?"
Dr. E. W. Blakeman, religious adviser
to students at the First Methodist
Church, who was present on all of
the trips last year, said yesterday.
Speaking from his experience at
four different summer schools, Dr.
Blakeman said the University trips
here are well planned. In acquaint-
ing students with institutions and in-
dustries, he said, they do what lab-
oratory , experience does for science
students. He expressed himself as
particularly impressed by the trips
to nearby State institutions, where
staffs of trained men give brief lec-"
tures on social cases, illustrated by
actual inmates and patients.
Eleven excursions, two of them re-
peat trips, will be offered again this
summer, according to infprmation
given out by the Summer Session of-
fices. The eight excursions out of
Ann Arbor, including the trips to
Niagara Falls and Put-in-Bay, may
be made for $27, it has been esti-
mated. This figure includes trans-
portation, meals, and hotel accom-
modations at Niagara Falls.
Trips to neighboring points of in-
terest will probably cost the student
no more than $1,-it was said, while
all expenses on the Put-in-Bay trip
will be about $5, and the Niagara
Falls excursion will be made for
about $15. More than 1,100 took ad-
vantage of the series of excursions
last year.
Prof. Wesley H. Maurer of the
journalism department will be in

charge of the trips within the state.
Ann Arbor and vicinity will be cov-
ered in the first excursion, planned
for June 29. Automobiles will be fur-
nished for a tour of the city, and the
libraries and the Union will be open
for inspection.
A day's trip to Detroit on July 1
will include a tour of the Detroit
News Building, Belle Isle, the Fisher
Building and the studios of WJR, the!
Detroit Institute of Arts, and the De-
troit Public Library.
The motor assembly plant, open
hearth furnaces, and rolling mill of
the Ford plant at Dearborn will be
visited on July 5 and again on July
12, the second trip being offered for
the benefit of students unable to
make the earlier trip.
Prof. Laurence M. Gould of Carle-
ton College, formerly a member of
the geology department here, will
direct both the two-day Niagara
Fallls excursion, July 8 and 9, and
the Put-in-Bay trip, July 29. Profes-
sor Gould was second in command of
the Byrd Antarctic Expedition.
The General Motors Proving
Ground at Milford, with facilities
'for making 165 different motor tests,
will be visited on the sixth trip, July
15, while two excursions will be
madeto Ford's Greenfield Village
and airport, the first July 19, and a
second July 26.
