the southern boundary of Yellowstone
National Park.
The location of Camp Davis, in a
broad expanse of open country, can
qualify as the "almost perfect" camp.
There is an adequate supply of water
under gravity pressure, an ideal cli-
mate, with but little cloudy weather
or oppressive heat and regularly cool

tains which offer unlimited oppor-
tunities for exploration and is near

Above is shown a sketch of the University of Michigan Hospital, noted throughout the country for its dis-
tinguished staff of research scientists. It not only serves as a state hospital, but it is the central head-
quarters of the University Medical School. A recent addition, the building of a special therapeutic pool
which was compieted last winter, has made its faciliities even more complete. The building stands on the
bluffs overlooking the Huron Valley.

growing proportionately more rapid-
ly than the winter session, although
the regular session this year has the
greatest enrollment in the history of
the University. In 1920 the summer
enrollment was 24.7 percent of the
regular session whereas in 1925 the
Summer Session was 39.2 percent
that of the larger enrollment.
Another interesting fact also re-
vealed was that the enrollment of
men students in the Summer Session
has been 1000 greater than the wom-
en student. Since 1924 the fluctua-
tion have been imilar for both men
and women. In 1935 the men' en-
rolment wa 2590 and the women's,
The reasons for this general un-
precedented rise are numerous as
explained by Professor Hopkins. A
few of the outstanding reasons are to
be found in the character and num-
ber of the Summer School faculty
as well as in the special features and
conferences sponsored by the various
departments of the University and
the general recreational program.
Guest Faculty Of 34
The faculty for the Summer Session
will number 410 of the regular staff
of the University, supplemented by
34 from other institutions.
Another factor which will tend to
swell the numbers of the student body
is the reduction of train fare granted
by the railroads to all summe stu-
dents and professors, as has been
conceded to all the larger educational
Furthermore, the severe competi-
tion among teachers for advancement
has made acquisition of the master's
degree a requisite for high school fac-
ulties while higher educational insti-
tutions demand the doctor's degree
for members of their staff. These stu-
dents and scholars are accepting the
Summer School as the logical place
to acquire these requisite degrees and
during the Summer Session is the
only time they can devote to this
study coming at vacation time.
The activities of Ann Arbor during
the summer every year include con-
certs, lectures, plays, excursions,
dances and, at times, study. Even out
of Ann Arbor, the pulse of the cam-
pus is felt in Colorado, New England,
Wyoming, and, closer to home, Nor-
thern Michigan and other spots
throughout the country in the field
camps sponsored by the various de-
partments of the University during
the summer.
Plan Mano Activities
Almost daily, for the greater part
of the session, there will be University
lectures by recognized faculty author-
ities on the widest variety of subjects.
Several times opportunities will be
offered to hear visiting professors
speak and the popularity of these,
as well as the other lectures, has
been proven in past years by the uni-
formly large attendance.
This year, as every year, there will
be a series of excursions under the
direction of members of the faculty.
These excursions will be climaxed by
a trip to Niagara Falls. Typical of
these excursions will be visits to the
more interesting attractions of De-
troit and inspection of various
phases of the motor industries.
For years the competent Michigan
Repertory Players have presented one
play each week, and this year these
plays will form an integral part in
the program of the Summer Session.
Plans are being made to conduct an-
other opera such as was held last
year through the combined efforts of
the Repertory Players and the School
of Music. These productions have al-
ways been anticipated and received
with pleasure and are one of the high

spots in the summer program.
