The Campus As Seen From A Bird's-Eye View



Courses off:ered by the College of
Engineering during the Summer Ses-
sion are designed to appeal particu-
larly to the following five classes of
.First, students who desire to short-
en their course one semester; second,
students who have not completed
their entrance requirements; third,
students who have failed in some
course; fourth, practicing engineers
desiring laboratory facilities for do-
ing technical work; and fifth teach-
ers in technical schools.
Regular courses to be offered by
the engineering college include the
following: chemical engineering, aero-
nautical engineering, metallurgical
engineering, civil engineering, elec-
trical engineering, engineering me-
chanics, ,nglish,. mathematics and
metal processing.
Advantages to accrue from attend-
ing the Summer Session of the col-
lege are that students may complete
the curricula in February when few-
er 'graduates are available for em-
ployment and the laboratory facili-
ties of the college are much less
crowded during the summer months
than they are during the academic
Other courses offered within the
engineering college program, but
which are included in the literary col-
lege curriculum are: Astronomy,
chemistry, economics, Frech, geog-
raphy, gelogy, erman, petrography,
mineralogy, physics and Spanish.
Some of the more interesting of the
summer courses include experimen-
tal work in aerodynamics and ad-
vanced fluid mechanics, both in the
department of aeronautical engineer-
ing. The chemical and metallurgical
department also announces over 10
courses in the chemical field covering
several elementary theory courses and
also some courses in special problems
and in the paint industry. The metal-
lurgical 'studies will include in addi-
tion to several advanced courses, some
iron and steel metallurgy and an x-
ray course.:
The civil engineering department is
offering together with actual en-
gineering courses, several courses in
contracts, specifications and en-
gineering relations. Also of interest
are the problems being presented in
connection with highway safety
courses. These courses are intend-
ed to show what could be done with
different highway construction meth-
ods in order to better prevent acci-
Five courses for undergraduates
and six for graduate students are
being offered by the electrical en-
gineering department. The graduate
studies include many new devlop-
ments in photoelectric cells, radio, de-
sign and other allied subjects.
The mechanics department courses,
which will be held in West Engineer-
ing Building, offer subjects ranging
from machine design to thermody-
namics. In connection with the me-
chanics, the division of drawing is
offering three courses covering ele-
mentary, advanced drawing and de-
scriptive geometry.
The metal processing department is
offering courses which are primarily
to acquaint engineering students with
modern methods related to all phases
of metal processing.

Summer Term
French House'
To BarEnglish
Opportunity Is Offered
For Practicing French
Conversation Informally
"Je ne comprends pas Panglais" is
the pass word at the French house,
which will be held at Kappa Alpha
Theta house, 1414 Washtenaw Ave.,
during the 1938 Summer Session.
Under the direction of Mr. Charles
E. Koella, Licencie-es-Lettres Class-
iques, of the romance language de-
partment, who originated Le Foyer
Francais two summers ago, this house
offers a unique opportunity for stu-
dents to practice the spoken French
language daily in an informal at-
Room has been provided for 16
women students, but both men and
women can take their meals at the
Foyer. A French lady and a House
Mother who speaks French will be
provided, according to Mr. Koella.
Nothing but French is permitted
to be spoken in the house, and news-
papers, magazines, reviews, the li-
brary, gramophone plates, songs, food
-everything will be French, Mr.
Koella said. Opportunities will be
offered to obtain a better command
of the structure and essential phrases
of the language to acquire fluency.
The Summer Session French Club
which was 'started by 'Mr. Koella in
1935 will be open for membership
to graduate and undergraduate stu-
dents of the French department, to
any student on the facpus, to faculty
members and faculty women. The
[ club will meet once a week at Le Foyer
Francais and the only requirement
for membership is a reasonable speak-
'ing knowledge of the French ln
guage. The last meeting, a formal
dinner, to be held at the Union.

Engineering College Gives
Advanced Work Here
By Guest Professors
Over eight advanced courses in en-
gineering mechanics and allied. sub-
jects will be offered this summer along
with the regular engineering courses,
in a special program for the Session
under the direction of Prof. Edward L.
Eriksen of the College of Engineering.
The practice of offering advanced
courses in the Summer Session was
begun several years ago through the
efforts of Prof. Stephen Timoshenko,
now teaching at Stanford University.
Professor Timoshenko received his
degrees in Russian schools and then
was located with Westinghouse Elec-
tric before coming to Michigan in
1927. He left Michigan in 1936 and
is now at Stanford. The courses are
sponsored by Dr. Walter P. Chrysler,
Chairman of the Board of the Chrys-
ler Corporation.
This year, in addition to three visit-
ing professors, all of whom are emi-
nent in their fields, there will be sev-
eral nationally known experts in me-
chanics who will lecture from time to
time on various subjects. The three
visiting professors are Professor Tim-
oshenko; Professor Jacobsen, also of
Stanford University; and Professor
von Karman, of the California In-
stitute of Technology.
The courses offered will include:
Advanced Dynamics under the super-
visicn of Prof. Jesse Ormondroyd of
the University; Advanced Strength of
Materials-Elastic Energy, to be
taught by Prof. John A. Van den
Broek; Research in Strength of Ma-
terials (Photoelasticity), teacher yet
to be arranged; Elementary Earth-
quake Dynamics of Buildings, under
Professor Jacobsen; Theory of Plates,
to be taught "by Professor Timoshen-
ko; Special Problems in Engineering,
a four week course under Prof. von
