University Budget Reaches
$9,000; Nearly Doubles
State Appropriation
A record Summer Session enroll-
ment of more than 5,000 students, an
Institute of International Law replete
with nationally-known authorities in!
the field, eight plays, a number of
lectures, an industrial strike, a Uni-
versity budget of almost $9,000;000
and the reactions of local Chinese
students to the war in the Orient
helped make news for The Daily dur-
ing the Summer Session, a survey of
the files shows.
The budget, probably the most in-
teresting item from the point of view
f regular students, nearly double the
amount of the State legislature's ap-
propriation, includes the University
Hospital budget of $2,423,199. The
hospital is a self-supporting institu-
tion under the direction of the Board
of Regents. The remainder of the
total, for the University itself,
amounts to $6,478,492.41, an increase
of about $490,000 over last year.
In spite of the increase, however,
the budget is insufficient for increas-
ing the size of the faculty, which is
% pressing need President Ruthven
has said. Increases in several indi-
vidual faculty salaries, in partial res-
toration of previous cuts made dur-
ing the depression, will be made, it
was understood.
Shortly before th'e release of the
budget figures, the Regents had ac-
cepted pledges and gifts totalling
nearly $90,000, including several re-
search endowments and 250 flower-
ing Japanese cherry trees, the gift of
Japanese alumni.
Arrested In Barcelona
Another development of the early
part of the summer was an occur-
rence far from Ann Arbor but none-
theless of considerable interest to the
town and the University. Charles Orr,
of Ann Arbor, the former a teaching
fellow here in 1935 and his wife, were
arrested and subsequently released on
charges of espionage in Barcelona by
the government of Catalan.
Orr had been engaged in writing

On the night of July 7, the automo-

gasoline pump, causing damage esti-

building caused a $1,100 loss.
The principle excursion of the series

Lectures Provided
Besides the highly successful season
of the Michigan Repertory Players,
summer dramatic group, diversion
was provided students of the Ses-

the auspices of the new Institute of
Far Eastern Studies. The hit of the
Repertory season proved to be the

Hospital Is Famous
The University Hospital, the larg-
est university hospital in the country
and the eighth largest in the country,
is a self-supporting institution built
by the State of Michigan at the cost
of $3,500,000.
One of the finest in the country,'
it contains 1,295 beds and a staff of
about 1,750 employees. Of this group,
approximately 450 are nurses and
about 250 physicians. Eighty-five
per cent of the patients are sent by
the State and county, and only 15
per cent pay their own expenses.
The hospital has been in constant
use since August, 1925.
