international Center Open
During Summer Session
The International Center, recent-
ly established by the University in
the south wing of the Michigan Un-
ion, will remain open during the Sum-
mer Session for the convenience of
foreign students enrolled in the Uni-
versity. The Center is maintained for
the purpose of fostering contacts
among foreign students in the Uni-

visitors have presented talks, some
illustrated, and faculty members
have also very frequently contributed
to the conversation. Successful mu-
sical evenings, with both French folk
and popular songs in order, have also
been held. Customarily an informal
social hour is held after the evening
meal and generally a banquet has
climaxed the summer's activities.
To Prepare French Meals
For special occasions meals in the
French House have been prepared
and served in the French manner.
French periodicals are available to
the students and in the past it has
been noted that the varied group of
residents from many parts of the
country have provided stimulating
contacts, thus giving the students so-
cial as well aas practical language
value from their summer's work.

tsches Haus may be obtained at the
German office; on the Maison Fran-
caise from M. Jobin of the French
Department or by inquiry at the of-
fice of the Dean of Women.
