Shows Largest Gain
The largest enrollment in the his-
tory of the University appeared cer-
tain yesterday after three days of
registration, when 9,997 students had
enrolled, according to figures released
by Registrar Ira M. Smith.
This mark was an increase of 243
or 2.5 per cent gain over the enroll-
ment of 9,754 for the corresponding
period last year. The enrollment of
women students showed a larger in-
crease with 126 than did the men

4.7 and 1.7 respectively. The total
number of men enrolled was 7,187
and 2,810 women, during the first
three days of registration.
Last Year's Enrollment
Last year's final and complete reg-
istration for the first semester was
10,644, larger than any previous en-

sponding number /of late classifica-
tions this semester, the largest en-

the depression years, and did not
reach the 10,000 mark again until
1935-36 when 10,401 students were

where 1,824 students registered in-
cluding four women, a gain of 180
or 10.9 per cent over the same period

the School of Education, where there
were slight decreases.
The literary college registered an
increase of 20, or a total enrollment
of 4,523 students, 2,769 men and 1,-
754 women. The total number of
men was a decrease of 41 under the
enrollment last year, but 61 more
women were registered this year than
for the corresponding period last

Four groups, the Wolverine, the
new Women's Cooperative, the Roch-
dale Student Cooperative and thec
five-year-old Socialist House, are or-
ganized here on the non-profit basis
of the international "co-op" move-l
A $6,000 loan made by faculty
members and other Ann Arbor resi-
dents to the Wolverine has enabled
the eating cooperative to move from
Lane Hall to 209 S. State, the former
location of Chubb's, and almost to
double its last year's membership of
Membership Lists Closed
The membership list closed Satur-
day night with 625 students, 75 of
them workers. At present there are
95 on the waiting list. Membership
will be opened "as soon as technical
problems are ironed out," according
to Donald R Murdock, '38; treasurer.
The loan of $6,000 was secured to
give permanence to the cooperative
and to aid in the purchase of the
building from the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation for $15,500,'
$5,000 of which is the down payment
The building was bought at the uni-
form six per cent land contract under,
which the F.D.I.C. operates. The;
contract, Murdock stated. will be
liquidated in approximately 12 years.;
Five apartments +and a single room
in the building are "the Wolverine's
property and rents from them will
constitute a part of the organization's
revenue," Murdock declared.

"We plan to institute a used book
exchange," the Wolverine treasurer
said, "very possibly at the beginning
of the second semester."

In Far Eastern
Tongues Here,
Following the great popularity of!
Chinese and Japanese language,
courses in the Far Eastern Institute
last summer, two courses in each ,
language will be offered this year in1
the Oriental Civilization concentra-
tion program, it was announced yes-
Late addition of these courses,
which further entrenches Michigan's
position as a leading institution in1
Far Eastern studies, was made pos-
sible by grants from sources outside
the University, Prof. Robert B. Hall,
chairman of the concentration pro-
gram board, said.
The courses in Chinese will be
taught by Dr. Y. Z. Chang, who was'
an exchange instructor last year and
who was induced to remain here to!
teach these courses. Dr. Chang for-
merly taught at National University,
Nanking. 4
Dr. Chang will teach a one-year'
course in elementary Chinese lan-
guage and another in intermediate
Chinese language.
Joseph K..,Yamagiwa, an editor in

now in the process of compilation,
will teach similar courses in Jap-
Both elementary courses are for
three hours' credit each semester and
are "designed both for students seek-
ing practical knowledge of the lan-
guage and for others interested pri-
marily in their linguistic aspects."
The intermediate courses are for
two hours' credit. All are in the
Oriental Languages department.
Dr. Chang will also institute a
course in Chinese literature in Eng-
lish the first semester and will again

Russia and China had negotiated a

Russia's warning to Japan was be-

such "barbarous and inhumane ac-
