Continuation of full-time training.
in professional public and social,
work under the Institute of Public
and Social Administration will be
offered this summer in the University
Summer Session.
The Institute is part of the Grad-
uate School, providing basic training
in social and public problems and
administration. It coordinates tech-
nical work of these fields, gives pro-
fessional experience, and provides
facilities for research in them.
Work this summer will be offered
in both divisions of the Institute, a
curriculum in public administration
on the campus, and a curriculum in
social administration inDetroit. The
curriculum in public administration
under Prof. George D, S. Benson
will offer courses sponsored by sev-
eral departments of the campus,
ranging from problems in public ad-
ministration, engineering highway
and public utility problems, to courses
in the economics and psychology de-
partments and the School of Educa-
A new course will be offered in the
field of administrative law or of
administrative measurements. Work
in this and other related courses may
lead to the degree of Master of Pub-
lic Administration. w
A regular eight-week course will
be offered in Detroit, under the direc-
tion of Prof. Robert W. Kelso, with
headquarters at 40 East Ferry St.
Courses which will be given will deal
in general with principles of case
work, public welfare administration,
social insurance, the social implica-
tions of current economic problems,
problems in social work, and field
work and seminars.

Featuring its connection with the=
men of the University Engineering
College, a 1/32 scale model of
the world's largest telescope-to-be
will be one of the displays of the
Engineering Open House Saturday.
When completed, the telescope will1
be mounted "on the peak of Mt. Pa-
lomar, 60 miles northeast of San
Diego, Cal. It will be twice as large
as any existing telescope, with a re-'
flecting mirror twice as large in di-
ameter, having four times the area of
reflection, and weighing eight to ten
times as much as the one at Mt. Wil-
son Observatory.
The mass of over a million pounds
will be balanced on the bearings espe-
cially designed by Prof. Jesse Ormon-
droyd of the engineering college. It is
so delicately poised that once set in
motion the energy expended by a
fly in beginning flight would be suf-
ficient to keep it going.
A few quarts of oil are pumped
through the' bearing at a pressure
of about 300 pounds per square inch.
On this small puddle of oil the tele-
scope rides. The instrument must
rotate at the same speed and as
smoothly as the earth turns on its
own axis. The oil bearings achieve
exactly this.

and cut down on these to nine and
even /six depending on the individual
and his ability. At the end of the
sophomore year and in the junior
year the student decides whether
he will take "honors" or not. If not
he is known as a "pass" student. In
the former case he must write a thesis
on a subject in his field of concen-
tration and take comprehensive ex-
aminations covering his entire de-
partment such as political science,
his field of specialization in that de-
partment, and in another special field
which is correlated with economics or
history. As a "pass" student h
needs only to take comprehensive
in his department and in his spher
of specialization.
In order to exercise a long-rur
check on tutors, comprehensive ex-
aminations are given by a separat
board of examiners chosen from s
division such as social sciences. T
some extent there is a current che

courses by conferences with the tu-
tors over the progress of individua:

confused with the comprehensive
which come only at the end of th
senior year). During this period stu
dents may review their terms' worl
in preparation for the finals and als
must do a certain amount of assigne
reading pertaining to the course
they are taking. This reading is de
signed to lead the student to learr

freedom than his classroom work.
The tutorial work of assigned read-
ings and papers is, in a sense, a fiftl

fields, is coordinated, Professor Ben

According to Professor Ormon-
droyd it is not expected that the Mt.
Palomar instrument will provide
more information 'on our solar sys-
tem. However, it will be invaluable
in the study of distant'"nebulae be-
yond our stellar system heretofor un-
seen by astronomers. Most of the
observation will be done through
spectroscopes,hhe said, to determine
the rate at which these nebulae are
moving away from our system.

Classic French Play
is To Be Presentied
,By Crc ramca is
One of the classical and most pop-
ular dramas of the French theatre
will be presented here Friday, when
the Cercle Francais puts on "L'Avare
by Moliere.
The play, a substantial drama, is
always enjoyed by theatre-goers be-
cause of Moliere's amusing satire of a
miser. Moliere, Who almost always
played the leading role in his many
plays, was suffering from tuberculosis
when he portrayed the part of Harpa-
gon, the miser, in the play, so he de-
veloped his hacking cough into a
comedy trait.' Today actors copy
this trait when they play the role of
The play, which was first presented
in 1668 by the Moliere troupe, is
typical of the French theatre in the
17th century, and the characters of
the play represent types rather than
persons. It is the story of a miser
who is trying to marry his children
off to children of -K wealthy friend.
The plot becomes very involved but
in the end everything turns out for
the best.
This is the 32nd annual play to be
sponsored by Cercle Francais, an or-
ganization of students interested in
French. Last year the club presented
three one-act plays, -"L'ecole des
Belles-Meres," by Brieux, "La Farce
du Cuvier," and "Le Cliente Servi-
euse," by Courteline.

other. not insignificant advantages i
from theaccords. Among tie most
important of these are:
(i.) Italy will respect British in-
terests in Lake Tsana and reduce her
troops in Libya at the rate of 1,000
per month until peace-time strength
is reached. (The massing of Italian
troops so close to Egypt has been a
constant source of uneasiness to
Great Britain.)
(2). Each state agrees not to
utilize methods of publicity or propa-
ganda at its disposal to injure the in-
terests of the other. (This will elim-
inate a constant source of friction in
Egypt and Palestine where Italian
radio broadcasts have attempted to
stir up discontent with British over-
Among the gains'Italy received in
the terms of the agreement itself,
Professor Ehrmann said, are:
(1.) British aid in the Council of
the League in securing recognition of
the Ethiopian conquest (but over 30
states have already recognized the
new Italian Empire").
(2.) A reaffirmation of the con-
vention of Oct. 29, 1888, in which Bri-
tain promised to keep the Suez Canal
open to merchant and warships of
all nations in time of peace or war
(but Professor Ehrmann believes it is
highly doultful that Great Britain
will keep the Suez open if Britain is
at war).
