History Of

Largest In

24 Lectures Offered
Outstanding Physicists Are
Invited To Symposium
At School
From June 29 to August 21 this
summer the annual Summer Session
of the University was held in Ann
Arbor and attended by 4,530 stu-
dents, the largest enrollment in its
43 summers and an increase of 11.4
per cent over last year.
Credit equal to that earned by
similar work during the academic
session was given and as in the past
the' faculty of more than 400 was
augmented by members of other ed-
ucational institutions in this country
and abroad.
The greatest gain in the various
schools of the Summer Session was
ii the Graduate School which had
2,365 students and was the largest of
the 11 schools, having an increase
of 340 students or 16.8 per cent over
last year. In total enrollment, the
literary college was second with 735
students and the education school
third with 328 students. The other
shools and colleges held in the ses-
sion were engineering, medicine, law,
pharmacy, architecture, business ad-
mihistration, forestry and conserva-
tion and music.
Many Plays Given
.Work done in these various schools
and colleges was supplemented dur-
ing the Summer Session with an in-
teresting array of activities not un-
like that presented to students in the
academic session. A.series of 24 lec-
tures was offered on varied topics
stich as literature, psychology, medi-
cine, linguistics and journalism. The
speakers included men as well known
on the campus as Prof. Irving D.
Scott of the geology department,
Prof. Arthur W. Bromage of the po-
litical science department, and Prof.
Preston W. Slosson of the history
For those interested in dramatics,
State Street was likened to Drury
Lane by the Michigan Repertory
Players under the direction' of Val-
entine B. Windt. The customary July
and August doldrums in the enter-
tainment world were swept away by
such plays as Zoe Akin's "The Old
Maid, Maxwell Anderson's "Mary of
Scotland," Glasswor-thy's "The Pig-
eon," Katayev's "Squaring the Circle"
and the apparently perpetual "Pi-
rates of Penzance."
The ten excursions provided by the
Summer Session to nearby points of
industrial, scenic and scientific in-
ter'est were also popular both for
diversion and education. Some of
the places visited were the Ford fac-
tory, Cranbrook School, General Mo-
tors Proving Grounds and Niagara
Conventions Held
Numerous contacts were also made
during the summer through the sev-
eral onventions and meetings held in
Ann Arbor. One of the first of these
was the fifth annual five week pro-
gram on Teaching International Law
sponsored by the Carnegie Endow-
ment Peace. During the course of
this five week program authorities on
international law spoke and courses
of'study dealing with the various
phases of international law. were
The Linguistic Society of America
and the University jointly sponsored
the first Linguistic Institute since
19$2 and the first to be held in Ann
At'bor. The Institute, directed by
Prof. Charles C. Fries of the English
department and editor of The Early
Modern English Dictionary, offered
courses designed for the scholar
wishing to familiarize himself with
remote parts of linguistic territory,
graduate students and language
teachers interested in linguistic sci-

ence and for those desirous of learn-
ing language or group of languages.
The University was selected as the
location for the revival of the Insti-
tution because of its many facilities
useful in this work, such as The Early
Modern English Dictionary, the pa-
pyri collections, and various mater-
ials from recent excavations in the
Near East.
Music Training Offered
A special feature of this year's
Summer Session was the three week
high school music clinic which con-
sisted of an intensive training period
for high school musical directors and
music teachers. Besides instruction in
individual instruments the clinic con-
ducted instruction in field and band
drills and demonstration rehearsals.
Outstanding physicists were invited
to attend a symposium conducted in
connection with the Summer Ses-
sion combining discussions of theor-
etical and practical physics. Of par-
ticular interest were the lectures by
Prof. E. O. Lawrence of the Uni-
