Six-Week Courses
Given For Nurses
A six-week Summer Session to pro-
vide basic and advanced courses for
public health nurses will be offered
this summer by the division of hygiene
of the School of Education.
The course is planned primarily
for those who are unable to pursue
college work during the year. A wide
choice of courses especially designed
for students in public health nursing
will be offered. Through the summer
study it was announced that nurses
may make substantial progress toward
the degree of bachelor of science in
public health nursing.

A full program of study for the IForsythe, professor of hygiene and

courses of two credits each. Officials Unversity Health Service. Barbara H.

German Summer School Club
To Be Formed By Department

To Establish

New 'German
Cafeteria Of

By SAUL KLEIMAN
To supplement the regular courses
in German and create an atmosphere
that will encourage the use of the
spoken language at the Summer Ses-
sion this year, the German depart-
ment has made arrangements to set
up a "German table" in the cafeteria
of the Michigan League and organize
a German Summer School Club.
At the "German Table" only Ger-
man will be spoken. This will all
be part of the plan to give students
opportunity to hear as well as study
the language. According to the Ger-
man department "If sufficient interest
is shown, a number of tables will be
reserved for the group, and a properly
qualified person will lead the con-
versation at each table."
The club, which will be organized
under the auspices of the German
department, will plan hikes, picnics
and other excursions to supplement
classroom instruction. "At the same
time teachers will have a chance to
become acquainted with new mater-
ials for their classrooms and student
organizations that will make their
instruction more interesting and
more vital," the department an-
nounced.
The regular courses to be offered
will be planned with a view to the
needs of. three classes of students.
For those who have had no German
instruction in the lower schools it
provides intensive elementary courses
that will furnish the students: with at
least a reading knowledge of the lan-
guage. For those who already have
acquired some proficiency in German,
courses in literature and practical
work in speaking and writing are of-
fered. For the advanced student,
there are courses in particular periods

of literary history, as well as in ling-
uistic theory and in the old Germanic
dialects.
Aside from these courses above, the
German department will provide a
program of varied courses in litera-
ture which is particularly suited for
teachers and students working for
advanced degrees. The lectures in
some of these courses will be given
in German.1
The University is cooperating dur-
ing this Summer Session with the
American Linguistic Society in the
establishment of a Linguistic Insti-
tute. For this reason, the German
staff will be augmented by outstand-
ing men from other institutions. Thus,
students unable to attend the regular
sessions of the larger universities may
have the advantage of doing work
in a far wider range of subjects than
isusually possible.
Of the many advanced courses of-
fered, there will be a study of the life
and literary influence of Friedrich
Nietzsche (Nietzsche's Also Sprach
Zarathustra); an introduction to
Indo-Germanic linguistics; a survey
of the "Burgerliches Trauerspiel" as
represented by Lessing, Schiller, Heb-
bel, Hauptmann and others; a study
of old Icelandic with lectures on pho-
nology and morphology and readings
from the historical sagas and the
Prose Edda; and a seminar in the
German novel of the nineteenth cen-
tury to the beginnings of naturalism.
HENEMAN GOING TO EUROPE
Dr. Harlow J. Heneman of the po-
litical science department will study
in Europe this summer, principally in
France, where he will have an op-
portunity to observe the workings of
the new Leftist government. He will
also spend several weeks in Germany,
where he will investigate the political
situation under the Nazi dictatorship.

Outstanding research work in stel-
lar spectroscopy and astrophysics is
being carried on by the University as-
tronomy department under the di-
rection of Prof. Heber D. Curtis. head
of the department.eThis work is fa-
cilitated by the large, well-equipped
observatory maintained by the Uni-
versity at Ann Arbor, and also by the
various other units which are located
near Pontiac and in South Africa.
The University observatory, found-
ed in 1852, was originally equipped
with a 12%/2-inch refractor and a
meridian circle. To this equipment
has been added a 3712-inch reflector,
which is used primarily for spectro-
scopic work.
Two more telescopes are mounted
on the roof of Angell Hall.These are
used for the most part by the under-
graduate classes. The fifth floor of
this building is occupied by the De-
partment of Astronomy. The spectro-
helioscope is located here, as well as
some of classrooms and laboratories.
Among the other apparatus at the
Observatory are three seismographs,
used for the detecting and recording
of earthquakes, a number of meas-
( uring engines, calculating machines,
and other miscellaneous apparat us
for research work.
The Lamont-Hussey Qbservatory, u
branch of the department, is equipped
with an excellent 27-inch refractor
which is used chiefly for the detection
1 of double stars in the southern skies.
Another branch of the department
is located at Lake Angehls, near Pon
tiac, Mich.
A solar tower is also under proess
of construction here, to be used in the
spectroscopic study of the sun. It
is planned to take motion pictures of
the sun's spectrum and of solar phe-
nomena. This tower will be the third
largest in the world.
Another observatory has been au-
thorized, to be located about 17 miles
from Ann Arbor.
