Work To Be Given
An innovation of the 1937 Summer
Session will be the Electronics Insti-
tute, a special lecture and conference
program in the study of electronics
sponsored by the department of elec-
trical engineering.
The Electronics Institute is to con-
sist of two successive but independent
four-week lecture sequences with par-
allel laboratory courses to go along
with the lecture material. Supple-
mentary courses will be offered in the
lepartment of electrical engineering
and the physics and mathematics de-
partments, rounding out the pro-
CorporationsBack Project
The Institute is being sponsored by
the electrical engineering department
through the cooperation of the Gen-
eral Electric Company, the Westing-
house Electrical Company, the Bell
Telephone Laboratories and the Ra-
dio Corporation of America. Mem-
bers of the technical staffs of these
companies will be sent to the session
as special lecturers and research
leaders. Within the University part
of the program is being sponsored by
the department of physics and the
department ofbmathematics.
The main objectives of the Insti-
tute are to provide an opportunity
for graduate students, teachers of
electronics, and men engaged in elec-
tronics work in industry, to broaden
their concepts of fundamental prin-
ciples of electronics. It is hoped that
assoiatibni between men Who are e-
gaged in research work in electronics
in industrial laboratories, and teach-
ers and students will contribute to
higher understanding and to develop-
ment of teaching methods. The work
is to be of graduate level, with the
courses carrying credit in the Grad-
uate School.
Two Lecture Series
The specialized program of the In-
stitute will consist of two successive
lecture sequences of four weeks each.
During each sequence there will be
two formal lectures and a problem-
laboratory course. The first se-
quence, from June 28 to July 24, will'
deal with high-vacuum electronic
phenomena. Lectures will be held at
9 a.m. and 11 a.m. four days a week,
followed by two three-hour after-
noon laboratory meetings for discus-
sion of problems illustrating material
presented in the lectures. Laboratory
groups will be organized according to
interests of the members.
The second sequence will be on the
general subject of gaseous-conduc-
tion electronic phenomena. Lectures
will follow those of the first series
at the saie times, with a problem-

For the second annual season the

Linguistics Institute, held under the
auspices of the Linguistics Society of
America, will be offered this summer
as a regular part of the University
Summer Session.
The Institute, to consist of class-
work, lectures and luncheon crnfer-
ences, is offered for the study of lan-
guage and linguistics from a histor-
ical and structural point-of-view, ac-
cording to Prof. Charles C. Fries, di-
rector of the Institute. Its aims pare
toward the development of a scien-
tific knowledge of linguistics in their
function among tribes and peoples.
It will also study the laws of language
change and growth. Histories of vari-
ous languages and studies of language
structures and fundamental prin-
ciples will be given.

troductory work in reading Chinese.
The Japanese seminar will offer work
in grammatical use of Japanese and
one in speaking, reading and writing.
The Russian school will give prepara-
tory reading and speaking work.
This will be the first time that the

President's Message

* ., ,-
Throughout the United States
the Summer Session is now a rec-
ognized and regular part of the
yearly program in the majority
of the larger and more important
Uuniversities. The days are past
when this session was merely a
poor relation of the academic
session and a period in which
those who were unfortunate
enough to fail in their courses
during the academic session
could reinstate themselves in the
good graces of the faculty.
Today at Michigan all the di-
visions of the University are in
session during the summer and
offer not only the courses which
make up the standard curriculum
but many others which can be
obtained only in the summer. To
make possible these special pro-
grams, group of distinguished
visiting scholars will be present
to aid~1ii tflh entt~rtion "iil to
give special lectures.
Besides the educational fea-
tures of the Summer Session, one
must not forget that nature, too,
offers certain ddvantages which
are not so generously bestowed
between September and June
Ann Arbor is ordinarily a pleas-
ant place in which to live and
work during the summer months,
and it would not be right if our
summer visitors should fail to
avail themselves of the many op-
porturjties for recreation which
are presented by our combination
of river, lakes,band playing fields.

To Begin June 28
A steady trend toward increased at-
tendance at each successive Univer-
sity Summer Session will not be brok-
en this summer, according to Prof.
Louis A. Hopkins, director of the ses-
sion, as all signs point to a new rec-
ford enrollment. A wider program
will also feature this year's Session,
he said, the 44th sponsored by the
General correspondence in the of-
fices of all of the University depart-
ments, Professor Hopkins said, indi-
cates that the Summer Session en-
rollment this summer will be the larg-
est ever to come to the University.
The exact number cannot be predict-.
ed, but letters have come from all
sections of the country, and an espe-
cially large increase in the Graduate
School is apparent. Last year, 4,528
students attended the Session.
The Session will open in all schools
and colleges of the University except
the Law School, on June 28 and will
end for most of them on August 20.
The Law School will open on June 21
for a five-week term lasting until July

this summer will enable the student
at the Summer Session to attend
the University at a fairly reasonable
Outside expenses, trips to nearby
lakes for swimming, to Detroit, and
other points of interest, and regular
expenditures here in Ann Arbor will
all vary according to the tastes of
the individual student. But fixed
room rates and the University fees

student income.
Session fees in the College of Lit-

College of Engineering, the College
of Pharmacy, the College of Archi-:

School of Business Administration
will all be $35. Work in the Grad-

In the Medical School both six and
eight week courses will require tui-
tions of $45, while in the Law School
the ten weeks course will be $45, and
the fee for the five week course will
be $27. Regular fees in the School

electing only four week work, with
not more than four hours' credit- will
pay only $21, and those enrolling in
two week courses, $15.
