Professor Hal To DreA
The Institute is being sponsored by
the American Council of Learned So-I
cieties and the American Council of
the Institute of Pacific Relations be-
sides the University.
The Institute was begun last year
in recognition of a "growing public
and academic interest in Eastern
Asia," according to Prof. Robert B.
Hall, of the geography department,
director of the Institute and chair-
man of the Oriental Civilization de-
gree program committee.,
"It is the natural outgrowth of a
long-continued association between
the University and the peoples and
government of the Far East," accord-
ing to Professor Hall. "This associa-
tion was begun with the appointment
of President AAngell as envoy extra-
ordinary to the Chinese Empire, and
has since been maintained by various
members of the faculty who have
served in numerous technical and dip-
lomatic capacities in the Far East.
The University has today the largest
enrollment of Far Eastern students{
of any American university."
European Tour

Music, education, and travel will be
combined in a European tour this

summer under the direction of Pal-
mer Christian, Professor of Organ and
University Organist.
The tour is to be in connection with
the School of Music and the fee,
which, of course, does not include
traveling expenses, will be the regular
Summer Session fee of $35.
The itinerary will include centers
of musical education and places of
historical interest. The group will
also attend outstanding musical
events, such as the Munich, Salz-
burg, and Bayreuth Festivals.
During the tour special attention
will be given to the interrelationships
of music with the arts of architecture,
sculpture and painting in Rome.

President's Message


The University of Michigan will
hold its 45th annual Summer Ses-
sion this year. 'Having attained
such an age and record of eper-
ience, the Summer Session is, of
course, recognized by all of~us as
a regular division of the Univer-
sity year in which it is possible to
do exactly the same kind of work
as in the September to dune ses-
sion and thereby shorten the
number of years necessary to se-
cure a degree.
I would, however, call attention
to what I believe to be the most
distinctive and remarkable aspect
of our Summer Session; namely,
the Institutes which are quite
regularly held in connection with
it. This year the program includes
x Linguistic Institute, an Insti-
tute of Far Eastern Studies, be-
sides the Traveling Seminar in
Music Literature, the curriculum
in social work in Detroit, the
special lectures in biological
chemistry, and the Graduate
Center being maintained at the
Northern State Teachers College,
at Marquette. These Institutes
provide opportunities for concen-
trated studies in the fields which
they cover and in some cases a
chance to study subjects which
are not available during the regu-
lar academic session. What
gives us most satisfaction about
them is that, to a very great ex-
tent, it is possible for the Univer-
sity of Michigan to plan these
special programs from its own
resources. By these and other
means the Summer Session stu-
dent today is being offered ad-
vantages far greater than were
available five or ten years ago.

taught in the engineering school here
and is at present a professor of en-,
gineering mechanics at Stanford
University. In his particular field of
engineering mechanics he is consid-

his effect upon the teaching of en-
gineering mechanics in this country

has been very profound.

Laboratory work and regular classes
will comprise the greater part of the
program of the Institute. This will
be supplemented by a series of lec-
tures by the staff and by guests
brought to Ann Arbor for the pur-
pose. The luncheon conferences will
be held twice weekly in the new Hor-
