Seven departments of the literary
college will cooperate to offer a
Graduate Study Program in Amer-
ican Culture and Institutions during
the 1940 Summer Session of the
The course, giving two hours cred-
it, is one of the most outstanding
things ever attempted in a Summer
Session, Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, di-
rector, said yesterday. As a point
of special interest during the pres-
ent international trouble, he con-
tinued, it will concentrate on the
aspects of our own development in-
stead of those of the Far East and
Latin America which were presented
in past years.
Entry to the Program will be open
only to graduate. students who have
the approval of the departmental
heads: economics, Prof. I. L. Sharf-
man; English, Profs. J. L. Davis and
M. L. Williams; geography, Prof. S.
D. Dodge; history, Prof. D. L. Du-
mond; philosophy, Prof. C. B. Vib-
bert; political sciences, Prof. J. S.
Reeves, and sociology, Prof. R. C.
During the opening week of the
Session, students in Course 350, the
official name of the Program, will
meet in seven different sections, each
under the direction of the depart-
mental heads of the Program. This
week of meetings, Professor Hopkins
explained, will serve to prepare
ground work and to determine on
which aspects of the general course
students of particular departments
are to concentrate.
The body of the Program, he con-
tinued, will consist of a series of
lectures open to the public and closed
round table discussion sessions on
five topics, "Regionalism and Na-
tionalism," "Religion and Educa-
tion," "Literature and Art," "Com-
merce and Industry" and "Govern-
ment and Politics."
Each topic will be under consider-
ation one week, featuring three eve-
ning lectures, one afternoon lecture
and an evening round table discus-
sion after the last lecture. In addi-

More Comprehensive List Of Courses
To BBySchool Of Mus

Wider opportunities for cultural
contacts and a more comprehensive
list of courses will be offered at this
year's Summer Session of the School
of Music which marks its eleventh
appearance as a unit of the Universi-
ty, according to Dr. Charles A. Sink,
president of the School of Music.
For the preceding 42 years, courses
in music have been offered by the
University School of Music in a sep-
arate Summer Session. By becom-
ing a part of the regular summer,
curricula, students will enjoy the
additional privilege of electing studies
other than music, Dr. Sink pointed
Scope Is Wide
The scope of instrucuion includes
courses to meet the needs of four
types of students: those who are
candidates for graduate degrees with
concentration in music, M.M. and
A.M.; students in other schools and
colleges of the University who wish
to study music for purely cultural
purposes and who wish to apply cred-
it earned for such study toward the
A.B. or B.S. degree; professional mu-
sicians, supervisors of music in pub-
lic schools and private teachers who
wish to broaden their training in a

specific sub,iect or department whe-
ther or not they are candidates for
graduate or undergraduate degrees;
and others who as special students
wish to "take lessons."
In addition to courses in individual
instruction from elementary to ad-
vanced grades in piano, voice, violin,
violoncello, organ and principal or-
chestral instruments, a diversified
program in musicianship, including
theory, literature, history and anal-
ysis of music is offered. Both ele-
mentary and secondary school in-
struction in music, vocal and instru-
mental is included in the field of mu-
sic education.
Special concerts, lectures, excur-
sions and other forms of entertain-
ment have been arranged as part of
the daily program of the Summer
Session. Each Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.,
faculty concerts, open to the public
without admission charge, will be
given in Hill Auditorium. A small
admission will be charged for a series
of plays which are presented in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre under
the auspices of Play Production.
One of the features of this suns-
mer's session will be a three-week
High School Band Clinic which will
meet from July 8 to July 27. Mem-

bership in the Clinic is limited to
high school students, recent gradu-
ates who are interested in music eith-
er as a vocation or avocation and to
instructors and directors of music in
secondary schools. The Clinic has
two purposes, Dr. Sink explained. Pro-
fessional leadership will be offered
high school students and secondary
school instructors and directors will
have the opportunity of observing
the presentation, by practical demon-
stration, of modern methods of' or-
ganizing and teaching music as a
subject of definite educational value.
University Houses Visitors
Students attending the three-week'
' High School Band Clinic will be
housed and boarded under University'
auspices for a nominal fee and all
activities, educational or recreational,
will be taken over by University offi-
cials. Secondary school teachers,

sion will not be charged an addition-
al fee for participation in, or obser-
vation of the Clinic. Dr. Sink stated.

Courses Divided Into Groups
Courses offered are divided into
three groups: those for undergradu-
ates in other colleges or the Univer-
sity; special or technical courses for
teachers, engineers,lawyers and phy-
sicians in practice; graduate courses
designed for students qualified to
enroll for higher degrees.
One of the most outstanding of the
programs and courses offered by the
Summer Session, according to Direc-
tor Hopkins, is the Graduate Pro-
gram in American Culture. Available
to selected graduate students through
seven departments of the literary
college, it will feature five series of
lectures and round tables on related
topics, each lasting one week. In

Cmp Davis Offers Field Work
To University Geology Students

An integral unit in the modern
educational method of giving prac-
tical experience in actual field work
is Camp Davis, the University sum-
mer surveying and geology camp
near Jackson, Wyoming.
Camp Davis, ideally situated both
for a surveying camp and for its
recently acquired function as a base
camp for geology field work, provides
for the surveyor a large variety of
landscape conditions, varying from
the flat valley floor on which the
camp is located to the towering
peaks and steep slopes of the Grand
Teton Range.
The prospective surveyor is here
given an opportunity to gain an
intimate working knowledge of any
possible type of terrain that he might
meet in his future work. Two courses
in instruction and field practice are
offered this year.
The region surrounding Camp
Davis also offers a great variety of
geologic features. But a short dis-

study of the general physiography
and structural geology of the route
traveled will be made. In addition,
the group will stop at various geo-
logic features en route. The Drift-
less Area of Wisconsin, the Bad
Lands of North Dakota, and the
Black Hills uplift are included on the
itinerary. Two research projects and
one regular field project are offered.
Exclusive of these courses Camp Da-
vis and certain equipment are avail-
able for a limited number of inde-
pendent investigators . interested in
the problem of the region.
Pioneering in te establishment
and maintenance of a. camp for
summer field work, the University
organized Camp Davis in 1874 under
the supervision of the late Prof J. B.
Davis. The camp occupied several
sites in Michigan until 1929 when
the University purchased a tract of
land in Jackson's Hole, Wyoming.
The camp site is in the valley of the
Hnoh'k R iver. 75miles south ofI


Biological Station To Be Open
For Summer Zoology Students

Offering a large variety of field
work studies, the University Biologi-
cal Station on the shores of Douglas
Lake in Cheboygan County, Michi-
gan, will open again this June for
students interested in advanced zoo-
logical and botanical field work.
The Biological Station is located
on the University-owned Bogardus
Tract which occupies an area of
more than 3,900 acres between Doug-
las and Burt Lakes, 13 miles south-
west of Cheboygan. This region is
one of transition between the region
of coniferous forests to the north
and the deciduous hardwood forests
to the south, and thus presents types
of vegetation characteristic of both
Swamps and bogs in various stages
of development occupy much of the
low land. Their flora is northern
and includes numerous orchids, the
insect-catching plant and sundew,
and the dwarf mistletoe.
A tract of virgin pine, known as
the Hartwick Pines, located near
Grayling, about seventy miles to the
south, gives an opportunity to the
student to examine such a forest in
its original condition. Especially in-
teresting conditions for ecological
and taxonomic studies are found in
Wilderness Park, bordering Cecil and
Big Stone bays to the west of Mac-
kinaw City. Here. in addition to

rounding the station is well stocked
with aquatic and terrestrial bird and
animal life. Numerous bogs and
swamps located throughout the area
provide a natural habitat for a large
number of species. The sixty-eight
species of fish found in the lakes and
streams are representative of the
fauna- of the Great Lakes region.
Certain species of fish spawn during
July, affording students opportunity
for the examination of breeding be-
havior and embryology.
The study of birds can be carried
on to excellent advantage. During
the period of the summer session
about 175 species of birds have been
The camp itself occupies about 30
acres of level ground and adjoining
hillsides bordering Douglas Lake. The
buildings are arranged in three
areas: a central campus with lab-
oratories and other buildings of gen-
eral use and two residential areas.
The health service unit consists of
a dispensary, hospital and residence
for the physician in charge. Within
the campus are nine laboratory
buildings, an aquarium, insectary, li-
brary shop, club house, and admin-
istration building.
Camp equipment includes launches,
outboard motorboats, rowboats, var-
ious types of nets and seines, trucks,
and a large stock of optical equip-
