Besides these special events planned
at the League there are a number of
regular features added to the social
calendar. Every Friday night a dance
will be in the League Ballroom. A
group of 50 hostesses from the student
body will attend these dances to help
people become acquainted. Admis-

during the summer may reserve the
Garden for one of these suppers. The
group will be charged 35 cents for

regular cost.

Charlotte Rueger, '37, League
president, together with Miss Ethel

League, will be in charge of ar-
rangements for the social activi-
ties which will be carried on dur-
ing the Summer Session.
Summer Social
Activities Start
With Reception
Sudents Are To Be Guests
Of Faculty At League;
Entertainment Planned
As in former years, the first large
event of the Summer Session will oe
the annual faculty reception which is
given each year in the League for all
students of the Session, according to
Miss Ethel A. McCormick, social di-
If the weather is warm, the receiv-
ing line is usually formed in the gar-
den. The president of the League,
assisted by other women students, will
take the guests through the line. If
the weather is adverse for this pro-
cedure, the reception will be held in
the Ethel Fountain Hussey room, Miss
McCormick said.
During the evening, the League will
be thrown open to all visitors, and
dancing will be held in the ballroom.
Last year Al Cowan's band furnished
the music.
Week-end dances will be given
throughout the Summer Session at
both the Union and the League. The
dances will be held every Friday and
Saturday night. In previous years,
Bob Steinle's orchestra and Al Cow-
an's band have played at the two
places. Student hosts and hostesses
assisted at the League dances last
Dancing classes will be held in the
League under the direction of Miss
McCormick during the Summer Ses-
sion. Lessons will be given for both
beginning and advanced pupils.
Bridge classes will also be held un-
der the guidance of Miss McCormick.
Weekly teas, taking the place of the
Sunday night suppers, will be given
for students of the Session.
Hours To Change
For Summer'I erm
Hours for women attending Sum-
mer School will remain the same
as in the fall with the exception of
week day nights when the time will
be 11 p.m.
This extension of time is appre-
ciated by the women students. And
such places as Loch Alpine, Barton
Pond, Walled Lake, Whitmore Lake,
North Lake and Portage Lake will be
the scene of many swimming parties,
a sport which the fall students are
not able to indulge in to such an

The opera of Montmatre in Paris,
mountain climbing m Tyrol, or Fin- i
nish baths in Scandinavia will be
enjoyed by the graduate students in
physical education who enroll in the
tour sponsored by the School of Ed-
ucation. Prof. Elmer Mitchell of'
the education school will conduct the
The course, which offers class dis-
cussion and study projects leading to
two, four, or six hours credit, will
devote particular attention to the
study of health, physical educaion,
sports, recreation, vocational educa-
tion, youth movements, adult educa-
tion, and children's hopsitals, as
found abroad.
Tour Will Cost Little
The cost of the tour, New York
City and return, will be $491, travel-
ing third class on the Cunard White
Star S.S. Aquitania. This covers all
expenses except the American pass-
port, tips, tickets to the Olympic
games, laundry, and any personal
purchases. The students enrolling in
the trip for credit are required to
pay the regular Summer Session fee
of $34 in addition to the cost of the.
trip. Graduate students entering the
University for the first time must pay
a summer matriculation fee of $5 in
addition to the regular Summer Ses-
sion fee.
The low cost of the tour is made
possible by the fact that the mem-
bers of the party will be housed at
student lodgings during their stay
at Oetz, Prague, Berlin and Lund.
Each student will be provided be-
fore the trip with a list of recom-
mended readings in books and cur-
rent magazines. Special emphasis
will be placed on the innovations
that have taken place since the
World War in each country's pro-
gram of health, gymnastics, sports,
folk dances and recreation. The
European situation in general will
also be studied in order to orient the
student as far as possible for travel
on the continent.
Last Nine Weeks
France, Germany, Austria, Hun-
gary, Denmark, Czechoslovakia, Swe-
den and England will be visited. In
addition, special side trips at extra
expense may be arranged to Switzer-
land, Italy, Poland, Finland and
The trip will cover a period of 65
days, or nine weeks, from June 27 to
September 1. Members of the tour
may go to the Olympic Games if
they wish. Special events at the
Olympics which will take place at
this time will be the opening cere-
monies on August 1; the Dance Fes-
tival on the same evening with such
famed artists as Mary Wigman and
Kreutzberg participating; the track
events continuing from August 1 to
8; the mass demonstrations of Swe-
dish, German and Sokol gymnastics
on August 9 and 10; and the num-
erous international conferences list-
Candidates for the trip may pay
the Summer Session fee of $34 any
time prior to June 15, 1936. Checks
may be made payable to the Univer-
sity of Michigan and mailed to the
office of the Summer Session, Uni-
versity of Michigan, Ann Arbor,
Mich. Professor Mitchell emphasized
strongly that students should make
early application for the trip in order
that various arrangements for ship
reservations and requests for tickets
for the Olympics may be assured.

its tailored lines. The newest of colors: pastel shades
and darker tones.
