Education will be the new planned
summer program for teachers not
seeking University credit which will
permit them to visit courses of in-
terest informally and to engage in
all of the social and recreational
activities that the summer calendar
Under the direction of Prof. George
Carrothers of the education school
students will enroll in the school
and plan their tentative programs
around their interests. Lectures,
concerts, and directed trips will sup-
plement the academic and profes-
sional phases of the schedule. Ad-
mission to the program may be se-
cured without submitting any creden-
tials. Living quarters and other ar-
rangements will be made by Profes-
sor Carrothers to cover the full eight
weeks of the session.
In previous years it has been pos-
sible for visitors to take advantage
of some of the opportunities by pay-
ment of the regular fees, Professor
Carrothers cited. This year, on the
other hand, those who wish to follow
the program will be charged a lower
fee, $20 for Michigan residents and
$30 for non-residents. This will also
entitle visitors to the usual health
services available to other students
and subscription to the Summer
Michigan Daily, he pointed out.
Enrollment in the course of activity
may be made through July 15. A
student who carries the program for
the minimum of five weeks or more
will be granted a credential describ-
ing the program, issued by Professor
Carrothers. It is hoped, he com-
mented, that school systems will
recognize this credential as evidence
of professional growth profitably
obtained by a planned non-credit
program, rather than by the'formal
work done in regular courses.

Center Of Graduate Activities During summer Session

Summer School Graduate Program
FeaturesAmerican Cu Itura lInstitute


The Horace Rackham School of Graduate studies, shown above, will be the headquarters of the grad-
uate school during the summer session. Completed in 1938, it is known as one of the most beautiful build-
ings on the campus.
Industry Heads, TechniciaOns And
Educatolrois Give Course On Engines


Industrial leaders and technicians
will cooperate with educators from
five departments of the University
to present an eight-week lecture and
laboratory course on internal com-
bustion engines during the 1940 Sum-
mer Session.
Entitled the "Internal Combustion
Engine Institute," the program will
deal with the fundamental principles
of both theory and practice in the
design, construction and utilization
of internal combustion engines, with
a specialsadvanced course in the
parallel subject of thermodynamics
as applied to the internal combus-
tion engine open to those interested.
Program Delineated
The program of the Institute, as set
forth in a bulletin issued by the de-
partment of mechanical engineering,
will be conducted for the benefit of
men who already have a basic knowl-
edge of this type of engine, gained
through formal course work or as
an outgrovith of engineering, re-
search or teaching experience. Any
engineer with a good training in
mechanical engineering or allied sub-
jects, the bulletin points out, can
gain considerable benefit from the
As a highlight on the program
sponsored by the mechanical engin-I
eering department, a symposium on
vibration problems, under the direc-
tion of Dr. S. P. Timoshenko and
sponsored jointly by the Timken Rol-
ler Bearing Company and the Uni-
versity, will be offered.
The, program of the Institute has
been made possible by the coopera-
tion of leading manufacturing com-
panies in various branches of the in-
ternal combustion engine industry
through the loan of members of their
technical staffs to serve as special
Within the University, the Insti- !
tute is under the sponsorship of the
department of mechanical engin-
eering, with the cooperation of the
physics, aeronautical engineering, en-
gineering mechanics and mathemat-
ics departments.
The general objective of the In-
stitute, as outlined in the bulletin,
is to provide opportunity for clari-
fication and discussion of fundamen-
tal principles as well as for the pre-
sentation of some of the latest de-
velopments in this field.
Special attention of the institute
is called to the following groups: (1)
teachers and prospective, teachers of
internal combustion engines, (2) en-
gineers engaged in such work in in-

dustry, and (3) graduate students in- J. Thompson of the aeronautical en-

terested in the subject.
The Internal Combustion Insti-
tute is organized as a part of the
Summer Session of the University.'
The work will be on the graduate lev-
el, and the courses included in the In-
stitute program will carry graduate
credit in the Horace H. Rackham
School of Graduate Studies for those
who desire it and have the proper
Carry On Research
The privilegeof taking part in the
work of the Institute and of carry-
ing on research in the University lab-
oratories and libraries during the
Summer Session will be extended to
men who have degrees of Doctor of
Philosophy or Doctor of Science by
the dean of the graduate school, on
the recommendation of the director
of the Institute. Those desiring to
avail themselves of this privilege
should file applications before the
opening of the Summer Session in
order that satisfactory arrangements
may be made in advance.
The work of the Institute and the
general conduct of courses will be
under the direction of Prof. John E.
Emswiler, Walter E. Lay, Ransom
S. Hawley, Edward T. Vincent and
Axel Marin of the mechanical en-
gineering department, Prof. Jesse
Ormontroyd of the engineering me-
chanics department and Prof. Milton

gineering department.
The fundamental courses on the In-
ternal Combustion Engines offered
by the faculty of the University will
be supplemented by a series of spe-
cial lectures, to be given by outstand-
ing men loaned from industry, each l
a specialist in some particular field,
who will lecture on his own subject!
and handle any discussion on that
phase of the study. A .total of 16
such lectures will be offered, two to
be held each Saturday morning for
eight weeks.
Special Lecturers Named
Special lecturers will include Prof.
J. H. Keenan of the Massachusetts
Institute of - Technology and Prof.
S. Timoshenko of Stanford Univer-
Lecturers from industry will in-
clude Robert Janeway, E. W. Upham
and A. D. Wallace of the Chrysler
Corporation; W. G. Lovell, G. F.
Shoemaker and Lloyd Withrow of
General Motors laboratories; J. M.
Miller of the Standard Oil Company;
F. C. Mock from the Bendix Aviation
Corporation; G. Williams of the
Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Engine
Company; E. J. Willis from the
Aluminum Company of America; H.
F. Wood from the Wyman-Gordon
Company; F. M. Young of the Young

their students. The round tables
will feature questions sent in in ad-
vance by students; these meetings
will be open only to enrolled students
and members of the University fac-
Paralleling the regular lectures
and round tables of the Program.
Dumas Malone, editor of the "Dic-
tionary of American Biography,"
will give a special series of 14 lec-
tures. They will deal with outstand-
ing personalities in the five fields
under consideration and will be given
on the same days as the regular lec-
tures. Because of his position, Pro-
fessor Hopkins said, Malone is espe-
cially fitted to deliver this lecture
series. Their titles will be announced
in a publication at the opening of
the Summer Session.
The general aim of the Program
is to deal with problems of inter-
pretation, definition and appraisal
of fundamental elements of our cul-
ture and with the forces that have
shaped the course of America down
to the present day. It is not intended,
Professor Hopkins commented, to
supply a survey of elementary fac-
tual information nor to deal ex-
haustively with a terrifically com-
plex subject.
The calibre of students in the
course, he pointed out, is intended
to be that of the person who has
completed most of the work for a
master of arts degree. These stu-
dents, he added, should be able to
follow the work of such a collabora-
tion of scholars as is planned for
the curriculum of the Program.
Informal activities have been plan-
ned for the benefit of those in the
Program. Tours will be arranged to
the museum at Greenfield Village, to
industrial plants in Detroit and to
the Detroit Institute of Arts with a
gallery talk on the American art in
the collection there. The School of
Music will give concerts devoted to
American music, and American plays
will be presented by the Michigan
A special exhibit of American art
will also be held in the galleries of
the Raskham Building, while other
collections, illustrating various as-
pects of the program, will be on
display in the Main Library, the
Clements Library and the architec-
ture college building.
"Regionalism and Nationalism,"
the first of the topics to be studied.
will open with a lecture on "Amer-
ican Literature as an Instrument for
Cultural Analysis," by Prof: Howard
M. Jones of Harvart University,
Other sub-topics to be considered are
"The Old South as a Laboratory for
Cutural Analysis," "The Conflict and

Fusion of Cultural Groups in the
Interior Plains" and "Cultural
Trends in Relation to Regional Dif-
A consideration of "Church and
State in the New World," by Prof.
W. W. Sweet of the University of
Chicago, will open the week of lec-
tures devoted to the study of "Reli-
gion and Education." This will be.
followed by addresses on "Religion
and Humanitarianism," "Education
as a Responsibility of the State" and
"The Social Responsibility of Educa-
The lectures devote dto "Litera-
ture and Art" will open with an ad-
dress on "Native Impulses in Amer-
ican Literature," by Prof. G. F. Whi-
cher of Amherst College. The series
will continue with lectures on "Amer-
ican Humor and National Sanity,"
"Some Trends in American Aesthe-
tics" and "American Art."
A lecture on "Technological Prog-
ress in Economic Society," by Har-
low S. Person, consultant in busi-
ness economics and management of
New York, will highlight the series

on "Commerce and Industry," being
followed by considerations of "Cor-
porate Organization and Concentra-
tion of Economic Power'," "The Role
of Individualism in American Life"
and "The Development of Social Con-
The final topic to be considered
in the weekly lecture groups. "Gov-
ernment and Politics." will open with
a lecture on "The Origin and De-
velopment of' American Political
Thought," by Prof. Jesse S. Reeves,
chairman of the political science de-
partment. "The Fundamental Law
and Judicial Review," "Individual
Freedom as an Objective in Gov-
ernment" and "The Function of
American Political Parties" are the
topics of the concluding lectures.
The curriculum of the Program
has been arranged through the co-
operation of Wilfred B. Shaw, direc-
tor of alumni relations and editor
of the "Quarterly Review"; Dr. Carl
E. Guthe, director of University mu-
seums, and Prof. Wells I. Bennett,
dean of the architecture college;
Louis I. Bredvold, chairman of the
English department.
