Summer Excursions T'o Points
Of Interest To Be Conducted

Eight Tours Included In
S.chedue; Niagara Eals
To Be Main Feature
An has been its custom for the past
several years, the Summer Session
will this year sponsor a series of
student excursions to points of in'-
terest in .the vicinity of Ann Arbor.
The series will include eight dif-
ferent tours, and two trips will be
made .to each -of two of the points.
The first tour, to be held on Thurs-:
day, June 29, will covei' the campus.
Such points as the Main Library, the
Clements Library, the Law Quad-'
rangle, and the Michigan Union -will:
be included.
The second excursion will be a day.
in Detroit. Traveling .in special mo-
torbusses, the party will visit the De-'
troit' institute of Arts, Belle Isle
Park in the Detroit River, the new
Fisher Building, and the Detroit Zoo-,
logical Park.
The Ford Plant at River Rouge will
be the subject of the third excursion.
During the two hours the University
party will spend there, there will be
much opportunity to observe the Ford
industrial technique, as displayed in
visits to the various plants.'
The next tour will be to the schools;
of the Cranbrook' Foundation, in
BloomfieldHills. The party "will see

the various schools, the Cranbrook
Academy of Arts, the Cranbrook In-
stitute -of Science, and the ma rnifi-
cient Cirist Church.
The fifth excursion will be a repe-
tition of the trip to the Ford plant,
for those unable to attend the first.
A four-day trip to Niagara Falls
and the vicinity from July 14 to 18,
inclusive, will be the main feature of
the series. This trip, which Will in-
clude trips through the Cave of the
Winds and through the Schoelkopf
Plant of the Niagara Falls Power
Company, will be conducted by a
member of the faculty of the De-
-artment of Geology, who will point
out interesting geological features of
the journey.
A trip to Greenfield Village, the re-
production by Henry Ford of a Michi-
gan towh of 80 years ago, will be the
next tour. The village; accurately re-
'produced, contains also buildings and
laboratories of Thomas A. Edison,
which Ford caused to be transferred
to it.
The eighth excursion will be to the
proving grounds of the General Mo-
tors Corporation, at Milford. Here
there have been constructed lengths
of all kinds of road, and there are,
facilities for conducting 165 tests.
Next the Greenfield Village trip
will be repeated, to give those who
will be unable to attend the first trip

AutaBan Modified
nuring Summer
Usual restrictions on the use of
cars are modified during the Sum-
mer Session. -Anyone who is 28 or
older, or who is' engaged in profes-
sional work, such as medicine, dentis-
try, teaching and nursing, during the
regular school year is allowed free
use of his cr.
In addition, students who do not
come under these specifications can
obtain driving permits from the Dean
of Students if circumstances necessi-
tate their operation of a car, or for
participation in outdoor sports away
from the city, such as swimming,
*golf and tennis. Otherwise the ban
will be strictly enforced.
Hillel Announces Orthodox
Services Through Jn n e
Orthodox services will be held at
7:15 p.m. every Friday from now
until the end of the semester, accord-
ing to Dr. Isaac Rabinowitz, director
of the Hillel Foundation. It was also
announced ' that sermons will no
longer be -delivered.

The last trip will be to Put-In-
Bay Island, in Lake Erie. This island
is of great geological interest, and
there is also a monument to Admiral
Perry which is 352 feet high.

others are forced to remain in the
cloisters of Ann Arbor. Thus arises
a problem of recreation - how to1
amuse oneself at the Summer Ses-'
These long walks through the
Arboretum are all right in the spring-
time, but it takes more than that to
provide entertainment for students
who stay in old Ann Arbor town
throughout the hot summer weeks.
That's probably one reason why
summer residents-men and women
--often discover for the first time in
their lives some of the unusual recre-
ational areas that surround Ann'
Arbor. Some of these places compare
favorably with the finest scenic spots
in all of lower Michigan.
It's all made possible by a relaxa-
tion of the automobile ban during
the Summer Session. Students move
from heated classrooms to more
pleasant surroundings, leaving Ann
Arbor on a half dozen highways.
And it's Whitmore Lake, 12 miles
to the north, that provides the set-
ting for much of the weekend levity,
afternoon swimming, and a little
fishing. There are overnight cabins
that can be rented, and there is
plenty of wide open space where you
can battle the mosquitoes for a place
to pitch a tent. Most students don't1

and the promoters there call it irish
'Hills." It's not a bad place to spend
an afternoon, especially if you want,
to climb a tower, pay your quarter,
and look at scenery.
Ann Arbor's own Huron River prob-;
ably will provide just about as much;
opportunity for recreation as most
of the locales which require the
burning of more gasoline before theya
can be reached. Along the Huron are
a couple of picnic parks, well-;
equipped and well-shaded, that pro-
vide the sightseer with plenty of op-
portunty to listen to the water
gurgle, the birds whistle,' and all' of
Even in Ann Arbor there is a little
excitement .awaiting the would-be'
student. The golf courses-the muni-.
cipal course, the University course,
Stadium Hills, Loch Alpine, the
Washtenaw Country Club, the Huron
Hills Country Club-all remain open.
Tennis courts are sprinkled gener-
ously throughout the city, mostly
down at Ferry Field and at Palmer

Students entering the School of
Forestry and Conservation this fall
will have a large variety of curricula
from which to choose, and may en-
roll either entirely in the forestry
school or combine their courses with
those of other schools at the Univer-
.. ; In addition to four academic
years, the forestry student must de-
vote one summer, to field training,
spent at Camp Filibert Roth in the
Upper Peninsula in connection with
Forestry Production Curriculum, and
at Ann Arbor in the Wood Technology
The Forest Production curriculum
is designed to meet the needs of those
intending to enter some phase of
forest protection, forest production,
forest utilization, wildlife manage-
ment and administration or who de-
sire a general basic training in the
various branches of forestry. The
curriculum is divided into three op-
tional programs of study, offered u-
der the designations "General," "In-
dustrial" and "Wildlife."
General Program Popular
The "General" progrAm offers a
broad training in forest production,
and is usually elected by a majority
of the student body. Intended for
those interested primarily in private
industry, the "Industrial" program
stresses the economic and business
aspects of forest management. The
"Wildlife" program is offered to those
whose chief interest lies in the pro-
duction and utilization of various
forms of wildlife and emphasizes the
biological and environmental fea-
tures of wild-land management.
The curriculum in Wood Technol-
ogy is elected by students who de-
sire to find their future in any of
the various wood-using industries or
some other phase of wood technology
and utilization, such as kiln drying,
wood preservation or timber testing.
By electing the combined curricu-
lum in Letters and Forestry, students
may earn the degree of Bachelor of
Arts or Science and a degree in the
School of Forestry and Conservation,
thus shortening by one year the time
required to earn the two degrees.
Engineering Courses Open
A five-year combined curriculum
with the College of Engineering is
offered those students who desire a
broad engineering foundation for
their work in wood technology. The
School of Forestry announcement
states that hitherto the wood tech-
nologist has been weak on the en-
gineering side, while the engineer's
knowledge of wood as an organic raw
material has not been strong. There
is now a lack of technical men in the
wood-using industries, which rank
third or fourth in importance among
the major manufacturing industries
in the country, and the combined
curriculum with the engineering
school tends to prepare men for this
phase of the industry.
A combined program in forestry
and business administration may be
selected by those who desire to de-
vote themselves primarily to the busi-
ness rather than to the strictly tech-
nical aspects of timberland man-
agement and wood technology. Under
this plan a degree of Bachelor of
Science in Forestry may be obtained
in five years and one of Master of
Business will be received after six
years in the school.
