Credits Given
At Boys Camp
Experience Will Be Gained
By Education Students
Located twenty-four miles north-
west of Ann Arbor on Patterson Lake
near Pinckney, the University Fresh
Air Camp gives social and- athletic
facilities to three hundred "unadjust-
ed" boys every summer.
Thirty social agencies in the area
of Detroit and vicinity select the
campers, who are taken for a period
of four weeks. During this time they
are under the guidance of seniors and
graduate students in the University
sociology and education departments.
The counsellors receive six hours
credit for their work.
The Fresh Air Camp is supported
by donations, including funds received
at the annual Tag Day which it
originated. Prof. F. N. Menefee of the
civil engineering department is chair-
mai of the camp committee, and

President Ruthven is on the Board of'

Medical Attention To Be Given
By Health Service For Session,

Occupying for a second summer the1
Fletcher Street dispensary, the Uni-
versity Health Service will continue
its services for the benefit of those
students enrolled in the summer ses-;
sion Courses.
Health Service offers the same
type of medical attention during4
these months as in the regular ses-i
sion with the exception that no phys-
ical examination is required for those
students entering college for the first
The functions of the Health Ser-
vice are divided into two branches,
the dispensary and the hospital. In

In Medicine
Training In Special Fields
Will Be Given
Medical students interested in get-
ting instruction in special fields or
interested in experience in fields out-
side their regular curriculum are of-
fered a series of six- and eight-week
courses in the Medical School during
its anual Summer Session.
Students who wish to earn credit
to apply toward a medical degree may
do so by making arrangements with
the Dean of the Medical School. Oth-
ers need only apply in the regular
Summer Session offices.
The courses offered will duplicate
some of the work given during the
regular year and will include: all of
the laboratory and some the lecture
courses of the first and second year;
some of the demonstration courses
of the third year; elective courses that
may be pursued by medical students,
technicians and others. ,
All work offered in the Summer
Session is equivalent in method, char-
acter, and credit value to similar work
of the regular year; but no allow-
ance for time will be given for work
done in the Summer. A student can-
not shorten his tenure in the Med-
ical School by attending one or more
summer sessions, since the legal re-
quirements for the degree of Doctor
of Medicine prescribe four years' at-
tendance at medical lectures during
the regular session.
Available to suimer students will

the dispensary, open during the reg-
ular class hours, the student may con-
sult the physician of his choice for
any medical attention. There may be
a small charge for some services
which are clearly not of emergency
nature, such as thorough medical
check-up, or eye-tests, but otherwise
there is no fee.
Infirmary Gives Care
Students requiring bed care are
provided for in the infirmary, located
on the fourth floor. There they are
given thirty days' care, including
emergency surgical operations, free,
if their cases have previously been
approved by a physician in charge.
However, out of necessity, extra cost
of private nursing and private rooms,
in the University Hospital must be
charged to the students. '
Medical attention is also given the
students in the University camps
on the same general principle as for
those in regular attendance in the
summer session. In two of these
camps, the Biology and Forestry Sta-
tion, a staff member is included in
the regular corps.
Summer Differences
The nature of the general work of
the Health Service is somewhat dif-
ferent during the summer session
mainly due to the season. At this
time there are fewer colds and in-
fluenza, but because the age group
is generally older there is danger of
more chronic disease. During the
regular session the physicians must
be on their guard against tuberculosis
and appendicitus, but in the summer,
cancer becomes more of a problem.
If a student becomes ill in his room
he may summon a, physician for a
minimum university charge of $1.00
for day calls and $2.00 for night ser-

together with added assistance of the
Medical School for any specialist at-
tention, is provided for the mainten-
ance of the health of the summer
school students.

Will Meet Here
Convention July 23 To( 27i
Will Attract Famous
Technical Experts
The 49th Annual Meeting of the
Society for the Promotion of Engin-
eering Education will be held in Ann,
Arbor June 23-27 as a part of the
Graduate School's summer program.
The meeting will have as its theme
"Science and Technology in the En-
gineering Curricula." Leaders in in-
dustry and engineering education
from all over the nation will be here
to deliver addresses.
D. B. Prentice, president of the
Rose Polytechnic Institute, will de-
liver the opening address at the gen-
eral section at 9 a.m., Tuesday, June
24. Other speakers will be R. A.
Seaton,'Director of the Engineering
Defense Training, U.S. Office of Edu-
cation, and James W. Parker, vice-
president and chief engineer of the
Detroit Edison Company.
Sections in aeronautical engineer-
ing, chemical engineering, civil en-
gineering, electrical engineering, en-
gineering drawing, mechanical engin-
eering, mineral technology and phys-
ics will be conducted by the country's
best engineering minds.
Students' Children
To Have Play Group
The problem of what to do with
their children while married students
are in class here this summer wil
be solved by the Ann Arbor Pre-
School Play Group, which will care
for them each/day from 8:30 to 11:30
p.m. from June to August 2.
Tuition, for the entire term will be
sixteen dollars, or eight dollars plus
four or five mornings of assistance by
the mother at the school.
Each child must be accompanied
by an adult who will remain for a
medical inspection the first day. In
addition, each child must be called for
at 11:30.
Since the play group is a co-opera-
tive organization designed to educate
mothers as well as children, each mo-
ther will be asked to assist a trained
teacher occasionally and to attend
two study groups and one lecture.

Again this summer the lure of lit-_
erary prominence and the added in-
ducement of the gold of Avery and
Jule Hopwood will entice students
from swimming pool and picnic andt
place them ambitiously in front of
their typewriter.
Fourth of the summer Hopwood
contests, this year's contest will offer,
eight awards, one of $75 and one of
$50 in each of four fields of literary
endeavor - drama, essay, fiction and
In practice, however, variations are
frequently made from this schedule.
Last year four students received a
total of $150 in the essay division, two
shared $125 in the drama division,
three $150 in the fiction contest, land
one contestant recived the only essay
prize award, a prize of $75.
Avery Hopwood Donor
The Hopwood Awards were founded
under the will of Avery Hopwood,
famed American dramatist and mem-
ber of the class of 1905. In his will,
Mr. Hopwood set aside one-fifth of his
estate to be given to the Regents of
the University for the encouraging of
creative work in writing. In ten years
awards have amounted to nearly $10,-
000 a year.
According to the bequest the Re-
gents are empowered - "To invest
and keep the same invested and to
use the income therefrom in per-
petuity, as prizes to be known as 'The
Avery Hopwood and Jule Hopwood
I Prizes,' to be awarded annually to
student in the Department of Rhet-
oric of the University of Michigan
who perform the best creative work
in the fields of dramatic writing, fic-
tion, poetry and the essay."
In 1930 the Department of Rhetoric
was fused with the Department of
English. Subsequently students in the
Department of Journalism were per-
mitted to compete.
Will Stipulates
To insure independence in selection
of subjects, the will stated that "it
is especially desired that the students
competing for the prizes shall not
be confined to academic subjects, but
shall be allowed the widest possible
latitude, and that the new, the un-
usual, and the radical shall be es-
pecially encouraged."
The rules of eligibility for the sum-
mer contest in 1941 are these:
1. All regularly enrolled students of
the Summer Session who have been
doing work of passing grade in all
course work up to the time manu-
scripts must be handed in, and who
are enrolled in one course in Eng-
lish composition in the Department
of English or in the Department of
Journalism are eligible to compete -
except students who have already
competed three times in summer con-

tests or who have already won a
major award in a Hopwood contest.
2. No manuscript which has re-
ceived a prize in any Hopwoodhcontest
shall be considered eligible in these
3. No manuscript that wins an
award in the Summer Session contest
is eligible in any subsequent Hopwood

Camp Davis
To Give Work
For Geologists
Wyoming Field Project
Provides Opportunity
For Landscape Study
An integral unit in the modern ed-
ucation method of giving practical
experience in actual field work is
Camp Davis, the University summer
surveying and geology camp near
Jackson, Wyoming.
Camp Davis, ideally situated both
for a surveying camp and for its re-
cently acquired function as a base
camp for geology field work, provides
fore 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 Te-
ton Range.
The prospective surveyor is here
given an opportunity to gain an in-
timate, working knowledge of any
possible type of terrain that he might
meet in his future work. This year
two courses in field practice will be
The region surrounding Camp Dav-
is offers a variety of geological fea-
tures. Within a short radius of the
camp are located many types of strata
and structural formations. Of spec-
ial interest are the great slide on the
Gros Ventre River and the glaciers
of the Tetons. The beautiful lake
country along the base of the Tetons
and the automobile- journey to Jack-
son's Hole are interesting weekend

Camp- Davis will include a study of
the Driftless Area of Wisconsin, the

Exclusive of these courses, Camp
Davis and various types of equip-
ment are available for a limited num-
ber of independent investigators.
Among thefirst to establish and
maintain a camp for summer field
r work, the University organized Camp
Davis in 1874 under the supervision
of the late Prof. J. B. Davis. Until
1929 the camp occupied several sites
in Michigan. In that year the Univer-
sity purchased a tract of land at
Jackson's Hole, Wyo. The camp site
is in the valley of the Hoback River,
75 miles south of Yellowstone Nation-
al Park, to which a trip is planned
during the summer.
Built for convenience and comfort,
the camp contains residence build-
