3rd Far East
institute Open
This Summer
Michigan Seen Specially
Fitted For Study
Of Orient
The Institute of Far Eastern Stu-
dies will be held at the University this
summer for the third consecutive
year, Prof. Robert B. Hall of the
geography department, director, an-
nounced yesterday.
The Institute is a continuation of
the endeavor begun at Harvard in
the summer of 1934 and continued at
California and Columbia in 1935 and
1936 respectively, he said. It met
at the University of Michigan in
1937 and has continued to meet here
ever since.
The Institute, according to its
catalogue, is a recognition of the in-
terrelated destinies of the United
States and the Far East and the
growing public and academic interest
in the Far East. Our institutions, his-
tory and customs, it holds, have been
entwined with those of Europe; we
have trained scholars in the lan-
guages and history of Europe.
One of the primary purposes of
Institute, the catalogue maintains, is
to train scholars in the languages
and cultures of the Far East. The
Institute, moreover, by means of its
courses and seminars attempts to
give students a detached understand-
ing of the particular civilizations of
the Far East.
The catalogue also stresses the
effort of the Institute to afford aca-
demic training to interested students
in such particular disciplines as his-
ory, economics and geography, espec-
ially as they pertain to the Far East
and its developments.
Michigan, the catalogue states, is
uniquely suited to entertain the In-
stitute. The University and its facul-
ty, it asserts, have for a long time
had intimate and friendly relations
with the peoples and governments of
the Far East, especially since the
time that the late President Angell
was appointed Envoy Extraordinary
to the Chinese Empire. More recent-;
ly, University educators and engineers
have rendered important services to
th Far Eastern governments it says.
As a result, the catalogue declares,
there has grown at the University a
substantial group of scholars whose
major interest is in Far Eastern
studies. The large enrollment here
of students born in the Far East,
larger than that of any other Ameri-
can university, reflects that interest
and is an indicaioQ, the publication
says, of the friendly and intimate'
relations between the University and
the Far East. I
The Institute continues for eight
weeks and is a part of the regular
summer session of the University.
the catalogue explain. All students
enrolled in the Institute are classi-
fied according to' the previous train-
ing they have had in Far Eastern
studies.Classes are divided into levels
of study; there is a progression of
courses from courses for beginners
to those for advanced students.
Three language schools are con-
ducted at the Institute: the tacing
of Chinese is under the direction of
Prof. George Kennedy of Yale; Jap-
anese is conducted by Mr. Yamag-
iwa of the University Russian by
Mme. Lila Pargment.
International Ceniter

The International Center, recently
established in the new South Wing of
the Union, will provide a club where

foreign students enrolled in the Sum-
mer Session and others interested in
knowing representatives of many
foreign countries may meet of mu-

specialist to see the problem of Latin-
American study as a' whole, (4) to
offer training in the Spanish and
Portuguese languages and literature

scholars in the Latin-American field
who will appear on the program of
special lectures and round tables.
