Horace H. Rackham School of Grad-
uate Studies, and the Division of Hy-
giene and Public Health.
Outside Field Stations
Many courses will also be carried on
in special field stations outside of
the campus. Among these will be
the Biological Station at Douglas
Lake, nine miles from Pellston, and
Camp Filibert Roth of the School of
Forestry and Conservation, near Mu-
nising. The Biological Station is for
field work in the departments of
botany and zoology, and will form
an important part of the work of
those departments, supplemented by
courses here. The Forestry Camp wil
have all of the courses offered by the
forestry school for the summer.
In State Bridge, Colo., the Geology
Station will hold its regular session,
offering field work of introductory
and specialized character, while sur-
veying work in the College of Engi-
neering will be held at Camp Davis, in
Jackson Hole, Wyo. Sessions will
be held also at the Geography camp.
Institutes To Take Part
Another important part of the
Summer Session program, Professor
Hopkins added, will be the work done
by Institutes organized by coopera-
tion of various departments of the
University, many of them supported
by outside foundations. The Linguis-
ties Institute, for the study of lan-
guages from their historical and
functional point of view, will hold its
second session here. International
lawyers will follow work given in the
Institute of International Law, and
the Physics Symposium, which has
won recognition for its work in past
sessions, will again be held.
Far Eastern Studies
Among, new Institutes will be the
Institute of Far Eastern Studies,
sponsored by the Institute of Pacific
Relations. This will deal with ma-
terials of study in Oriental culture
and political relations. The Elec-
tronics Institute will be held for this
summer only. Sponsored by several
large electrical corporations who are
sending men and material for study
to the University, the course will deal
with electronic principles, and is con-
sidered an important experiment,
Professor Hopkins said. In the Grad-
uate School the Institute of Public
and Social Administration will hold
courses in practical training in these
fields. The Curricula of Public Ad-
ministration will be held here, while
the work in Social Administration will
be done in Detroit.
Regular Privileges
Will Be Continued
By Health Service
There will be the same privileges
at the University Health Service dur-
ing the Summer Session for students
as during the rest of the year, accord-
ing to Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, direc-
tor of the Health Service.
The Health Service will be open
from 9 to 12 and 1 to 4 on week days,
and from 9 to 12 on Saturdays, he
stated. Students will have unlimited
use of the dispensary and free use
of the infirmary for thirty days. The

privilege of using the infirmary free
of charge also applies at the Univer-
sity Hospital, where each person is
allowed four dollars per day and some
fees toward expenses i n c u r r e d.
Charges are made for special nursing
and for a private room.
"There are not many students who
take elective operations during the
Summer Session except operations
after which it takes only a few days
to recover," Dr. Forsythe declared.
"During the eight weeks of school
there are fewer calls at the Health
Service in proportion to the number
of students than during the regular
term. Many students who are stran-
gers on the campus do not become
oriented in such a short time, while
others, who have been in adverse fi-
nancial conditions while out of school,
take advantage of the medical care at
the Health Service.".
"A greater amount of disease and
chronic illness is recognized in the
older age group which attends the
Summer Session because many of
them have been unable to get easily
the proper medical attention," he
stated.
During the Summer Session last
year 10,815 dispensary calls were
made at the Health Service, accord-
ing to a report issutd in October, 1936.

Libraries Open
Every Facility
For Summer
Special Service Is Planned
For Linguistics Institute
And Far Eastern Studies
Although only half the number of
students attend,'the Summer Session
as are present during the regular
term, the complete facilities of the
General Library and the depart-
mental libraries will remain in force
during the entire period of summer
activities, according to Dr. William
W. Bishop, director of the department
of Library Science.
"The pressure on the library serv-
ices remains substantially the same
during the summer as during the reg-
ular year," Dr. Bishop said, "and in
some sections is even increased. This
is true of the graduate reading rooms
and the main reading room in par-
ticular, as well as the School of Edu-
cation library."
The library is planning to give
special service to the Institute of Lin-
guistics and Far Eastern Studies dur-
ing the summer, Dr. Bishop said, in
both of which it is expected a great
deal of interest will be taken by
summer students.
Besides 'the people who enroll as
degree candidates, the library also
serves a large number of research
scholars who are either only taking
one or two highly'specialized courses
or in some cases are not entered in
the University at all, according to Dr.
Bishop. These students are attracted
by the wide facilities of the library, in
particular the rare book room collec-
tions and the files of journals and
documents, he said.
MichiTan Field
Men To Camp
On Green Bay
Located on Green Bay in the cen-
ter of areas that show varied geo-
graphical types and different kinds of
occupance, the summer camp of the
Geography department will offer a
field course that has aroused much
interest in previous years.
With near-by agricultural settle-
ments in various stages, cut-over and
timber land of several types and in-
dustrial, commercial and mining
communities all available for exam
ination, the first half of the summer
will be spent in study of areas close
to the camp.
Systematic land inventory of the
several areas of special interest in
the Upper Peninsula will be made
the last part of the summer. The
camp will last from June 28 to Aug-
ust 20 and is under the direction of
Professor K. C. McMurray. Its loca-
tion is 16 miles from Menominee.
Plays And Radio Work
Given In Speech Course

oratory of General Linguistics and
Speech, located in Angell Hall. This
laboratory will be at the service of
students doing work requiring the fa-
cilities of the apparatus, while grad-
uate students can conduct research in
Miolinguistics in a second Laboratory
of Biolinguistics and Human Adjust-
ment, at 1007 E. Huron. This is con-
ducted in cooperation with the Uni-
versity Hospital and the School of
Dentistry. Special work with the
deaf and those with speech defects
will be done here.
As concerns broadcasting, the de-

partment will have the services of the
broadcasting equipment of Morris
Hall. Besides class work, arrange-
ments are being made for actual radio
programs with students performing,
during the summer. Trips will also
be taken by the classes to nearby

it is, because it's to Greene's "whites-stay-
