:Proposed 3-Year College Plan
Won't Affect Michigan Campus



All work and no play for three years,
- instead of the usual four - will
henceforth result in a college degree
for those young men who would like
a sheepskin before they become 21
(weich age seems to have taken on
a new significance in recent months).
Thus ran the announcement a few
days ago of Dr. Guy E. Snavely, exec-
utive director of the Association of
American Colleges. Wondering if the
happy lives of the students on the
Michigan campus would be affected
by the proposed action, your reporter
made inquiries of the men who know
- and found that all would go on
just as before here in the "Athens of
the West."
As a matter of fact, all the an-
nouncement seems to mean is that
Robert Friers.
Leaves Sunday
On Long Tour
Famed Hitch-Hiker Plans
To Cover 20,000 Miles
On Pan-American Route
Michigan's most consistent am-
bassador, Bob Friers, Grad., will take
the road again this Sunday, when
he leaves for a 20,000 mile trip
through South America.
Friers, well-known as the world's
champion hitch-hiker, plans to re-
verse his past role on this expedition.
Driving his own car, he intends to
offer rides to all South American
knights of the highway, thus repay-
ing the world for the free transporta-
tion it has given him in the past.
This latest tour, which will keep
Friers away from Ann Arbor until
next October, will cover the South
American route of the Pan-Ameri-
can highway, from La Guaira south
to Chile. Venezuela, Colombia, Ecua-
dor, and Peru are included in his
Friers expects to encounter his
most difficult driving on the stretch
between Ecuador and Peru. Another
source of trouble may be a crossing
of the Andes to Buenos Aires from
Valparaiso, but'his present plans call
for a direct sea voyage home to
America from the Chilean capital.
The "lost city" of Peru will be
among the high spots of Friers' trip.
Only discovered recently, it should be
an excellent subject for the travel film
which Bob plans to make. Other
Peruvian stops will be made at Lima,
and at the famed Inca ruins.
This is Friers' fifth excursion south
of the border.

the 564 standard liberal colleges in
the Association intend to hold a sum-
mer session for the first time this
year. And the University scooped
,hem on that idea by some 48 years.
Many liberal arts schools - espec-
ially in the East - have never con-
ducted a summer session, but are
doing to begin now so that certain
healthy young men may learn all
about philosophy, geography, Shake-
^peare, etc., before they begin learn-
ing "squads right" and "present
48th Summer Session
This year, however, will be the 48th
consecutive summer during which
classes have been held on the Michi-
gan campus. Thus, for all time it has
been possible for the student who
wishes to do' so to obtain a degree
in threex years. All he must do is at-
tend summer school three times and
carry 16 or 17 hours of work during
the regular semesters.
The one thing. which seems ' to, be
different about the two plans is that,
Dr. Snavely says, under his new
course all J-Hops, sophomore proms
and similar functions will have to
be dispensed with, for the students
wvlil be much too busy with their
studies. He also stated that vacations
will have to be cut to a minimum.
Previously Unnecessary
This has never been deemed neces-
sary at Michigan even by those who
are going through in three years. Just
imagine, for a moment, what it would
be like. Between semesters would
find the hard-working student wrap-
ped up in a book instead of in the
arms of his O.A.O. at the J-Hop;
Friday and Saturday evenings he
would be drinking in knowledge in-
stead of amber brew at a local tav-
ern; he might be allowed to take
one (teven two, maybe) day off
around Christmas; and so on.
Such a picture is a bit exaggerated
and has not really been proposed by
Dr. Snavely for the colleges in the
Association. However, you have cause
to rejoice that you are where you,
are - at Michigan where studies
need not interfere with real college
life, even if you do want to get
through in three years.
