THE MICHIGAN DAILY
On Goethe Seen
Disclosed By Fairley
The complete influence of Charlotte
Von Stein over Goethe during a 10-
year period of his life was disclosed
by Prof. Barker Fairley of the Univer-
sity of Toronto in a University lec-
ture given here yesterday.
Professor Fairley, who is considered
one of the world's greatest Goethe
scholars, has writtenseveral books
on Goethe which have entirely
changed the concept of that poet in
the English speaking world.
Frau von Stein's influence began
with Goethe's arrival in Weimar in
1775 and ended with his trip to Italy
in 1786, although the two continued
corresponding until 1826, according
to Professor Fairley. Seventeen hun-
dred of Goethe's letters to her, which
have been preserved, show the spon-
taneity and inspiration of this period.
Frau von Stein, however, retrieved
and destroyed all her letters.
Goethe, in going to Weimar, was
-trying to find some discipiine after
his freedom at Frankfort and this
was furnished by Frau von Stein who,
seven years his senior, became his
apppointed guide of an ordered life,
Professor Fairley said. She filled the
gap in his spiritual life before his
/ The poetry written between 1775
and 1780 constitutes the second pe-
riod of Goethe's life and is distin-
guished from the rest by the absence
of all radical elements, he continued.
"Iphigenia" was cited as an example
of this period.
Announcement of the last lecture
in the travel series of the Junior
A.A.U.W. travel group was made by
Susan Manchester, chairman. The
meeting 'Will be held at 8 p.m. today
in the Chamber of Commerce.
Cut In Enrollment
The Department of Romance Lan-
guages has suffered a general enroll-
ment decrease this year, a compari-
son of enrollment figures for the last
two years revealed.
Recent compilations show decreases
of 6 per cent and 4 per cent between
the first semesters and second semes-
ters respectively. Due to the larger
enrollment in the fall than in the
spring, the degree of increase or de-
crease is more marked in the fall.
Morestudents are taking "Spanish
this year than last, but the French
and the Italian departments report
smaller classes. This year, there is a
special reason for the lack of popular-
ity of the French department. The
University's new entrance pxamina-
tion requirements have discouraged
incoming freshmen from continuing
here a two year high school course
in a foreign language.
In summer school, the Spanish de-
partment reports smaller classes,
while the French and Italian de-
partments have stable enrollments.
Although there are still many under-
graduate courses offered in summer
schools, there is an increasing amount
of graduate work being done during
College Romance Language studies
are reported decreasing in popularity'
throughout the country. This is at-
tributed to the fact that vocational
studies are gradually crowding mod-
ern foreign languages out of high

tive of the character and scope of the

Student Senate Supports
Camp Tag Day Appeal
Following action by the League
Council to make the University Fresh
Air Camp Tag Day on May 13 an
official women's project, the Student
Senate Tuesday night joined forces
with those campus organizations
which are supporting the Tag Day by
voting to "wholeheartedly support"
The main purpose of the action
by the Senate ,was to present, as
forum and semi-official expression
of student opinion, its support of
the coming campus drive. No action
beyond the resolution of active sup-
port was outlined.
The advent of summer sports has
resulted in numerous sprains and
abrasions during the past week, Dr.
William M. Brace of the Health Serv-
ice said yesterday.
Outdoor activity has also resulted
in numerous colds and sore muscles
in the past two days, Dr. Brace said.
Only one case of German measles
has been reported, according to-Dr.
Brace, indicating that the epidemic
of contagious diseases which was pre-
valent in April has now passed.
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, director
of the :Health Service, yesterday
warned against long exposure to the
rays of the sun. Dr. Forsythe recom-
mended a good, strong tan as health-
ful, but advised that the tan be ac-
Poison ivy will be causing many
students discomfort before long, Dr.
Forsythe prophesied, and he suggest-
ed that hikers and walkers be care-
ful to avoid it. Persons sensitive to
pollen from trees also should exer-
cise caution, Dr. Forsythe advised.
Students who 'get blisters while
playing ball or walking should leave
them unopened as long as possible,
he said, and he suggests that if they
are accidently opened they should be
tern wide open in order to avoid in-

This marks the first organized attempt in many years to
determine what, how, and where students live and pur-
chase their daily needs. It is an attempt, first of all, to
organize into accurate data the typical student budget for
the purpose of informing to a better degree the future
students of the University. Secondly, the survey is an effort
to increase the service of the DAILY to its advertisers, so
that they may serve you more intelligently with a keener
eye to your needs and desires.
