It's The
With Nature's change of garb these past few weeks and with the ap-
pearance of the first Turdus migratorious (robin, to those not acquainted
with zoology) has come some obvious changes all over this ever-lovin'
No doubt everyone has noticed the increase in
cigarette remains that lie strewn around all the build-
ing entrances - mute evidence that students are com-
ing late to classes these days because they stand out-
side dilating their capillaries with tobacco smoke, to
enjoy the rays of vitamin D a little longer.
Down the Diag
.Or 10 Ways to Spend...
And the increase of individuals who haunt the crossroads of the diag-
onals! Schemers must lay awake nights, dreaming up new ways to inveigle
the unwary students who pass to part with their money. With a few deft
movements, they have shoved two tickets in your face, grabbed your wallet,
extracted the exact amount, and you have become a lucky participant in the
latest "Aid to Decrepit Zulus Stranded in the Lower Burma" drice.
And with everything else has come the feminine transition from
tweeds of winter to clothes designed more for summer comfort. Gay gypsy
skirts, sheer blouses, picture hats, shorts and huraches. You know -
huraches - those Chinese finger pullers with soles.
On Love And Broomstick Skirts..
The erstwhile broomstick skirt is making its appearance again this
year; broomstick skirt, the answer to every college woman's lack of time
to stand over an ironing board. No need to press this article. Just wash
it out at night, wrap it around the shaft of your study lamp, and it dries
while you sleep. Next morning you care- '/
fully unwind it, put it on, and it looks
Just as though - you had wrapped it
around the shaft of your study lamp!
But the most obvious of any of the
changes yet to accompany the arrival of
warmer days is all the fellow student love
running rampant over the campus. Every-
body is everybody else's bosom buddy.
At night, however, you could kick your-
self squarely in the biscuspids for let-
ting some "pal" touch you for fifty cents when he caflghvt you with your
common sense down as you sat steeping in sunshine on
the steps of Angell Hall.
Yes, even that tall, corn-fed, farm product who's
been sitting near you all semester in History 12 suddenly
becomes someone whose hand you'd like to grasp across
a table at the Parrot. And all these things take place be-
cause Mother Nature emerges to see what she has been
missing since last autumn. Changes in which every-
body begins doing things differently from the way they
have been doing them, to conform with the season at hand.

Summer Sport
Classes, Outings
To Be Provided
WAB, Barbour Gym To Open
Course For Credit; Picnics
And Evening Groups Expected
Tournaments, instructional classes
and recreational activties will be pro-
vided by the Physical Education De-
partment for women during the en-
tire summer semester, said Dr. Mar-
garet Bell, head of the department.
The W.A.B. and Barbour Gym will
be open for all the activities, al-
though there will be no student or-
ganization at the W.A.B. Archery,
tennis, golf and badminton tourna-
ments for women will be run off dur-
ing the summer. In tennis and bad-
minton, there will be mixed doubles.
Credit To Be Given
Classes in instruction courses, for
which semester students may receive
regular physical education credit, will
be given in the following sports:
tennis, archery, golf, riding, swim-
ming and modern and tap dancing.
Other courses which will be offered
are body-conditioning, outing clas'ses
and recreational leadership.
Body-conditioning will be especial-
ly emphasized because of the im-
portance of physical fitness and en-
durance at this time, when it is our
duty to be prepared to take up any
task assigned to us by the govern-
ment, said Dr. Bell. "Co-recreation"
will be a feature of the summer's
program, as folk dancing and square
dancing classes and parties will be
Picnics May Be held
Scoring and etiquette rules of the
various sports will be taught in the
classes. Graduate students or teach-
ers, attending the session, will take
the recreational course. For those
attending the eight-week session, the
same courses will be offered, not for
credit, but as electives.
It is expected that there will be
evening classes of a spontaneous
type, and picnics around the fire-
place at Palmer Field. Majors in
Physical Education will take advance
courses, study theory, and do practi-
cal work.
Registration for the 16-week
courses will take place June 12 and
13, in Waterman Gym, and regis-
tratiol 'or the eight-week period will
be hel June 29, in Room 15, Bar-
bour g,m.
Nellie Of Nineties
Was Youthful Lass
But Uncomfortable
The little women who are coming
to summer session and the ones who
have decided to stay at home have
all planned to foil the heat by wear-
ing light, cool garments, becomingly
feminine but suited to the active life.
Nellie of the Nineties had much the
same idea. According to contempo-
rary fashion books she braved the
dog days simply clad in an ankle-
length skirt of flannel worn over a
mere quartet of underskirts. A match-
ing jacket surmounted a blouse which
strove to be cool by being sheer but
defeated its purpose with a high
boned collar. Attired thus, with the
temperature ninety in the shade, even
valiant Nellie must have repined
within her sturdy cornets but she
could hope for no relief, "Cottons,"
declared her fashion book, "are of
course too light and flimsy to be cor-
rect for street wear.

Center To Have,
Usual Groups
Summer Reception Is Planned;
English Classes To Be Offered
Beginning with their fourth annual
summer, reception, the International
.Center will continue throughout this
summer to play a large part in the
activities of both the summer session
and regular summer school students.
The reception will be given the first
or second week of the summer session
its purpose being to let international
students get acquainted with Ameri-
can students, faculty townspeople
and more particularly the many
teachers who come to the University
from all parts of the state. It will be
semi-formal, in accordance with the
usual Center custom.
To Hold Weekly Teas
International teas will continue to
be held at 4 p.m. every Thursday
under the supervision of the Interclub
Board, during June and September,
but will be under the sponsorship of
the summer session officers under
the organization of the International
Center the rest of the time.
Substituting for the ordinary win-
ter Sunday afternoon programs, will
be Interclub Board picnics, hikes and
outings. However, French and Ger-
man round tables will continue for
students who are interested.
English To Be Offered
One of the most valuable services
that the International Center has to
offer, which is the system of English
classes for foreign students, is also
definitely ready to function through
the summer. Individual instruction
according to the student's field of
study and personal difficulties will be
the keynote of the program.I
More indefinite plans hinge on
whether there will be a Latin-Ameri-
can summer session this year. If
there is, a detailed program must be
set up which cannot be revealed un-
til later. However, it probably will
include Spanish and Portuguese
round tables and perhaps a weekly
evening turned over to Latin-Ameri-
can music.
Dean's Office
Lists Auto Ban
Class if icat ionsl
During the summer term, rules re-
garding the use of automobiles by
students attending the University will
be the same as in previous Summer
Special groups have been chosen
to whom these rules do not apply.
These groups, who may have un-
limited use of automobiles are: those
engaged in professional pursuits, such
as doctors, lawyers and nurses; those
who are 26 years of age or over; and
those who have a faculty rating of
instructor or its equivalent.
The Dean of Students will grant
special permits, however, to students
who are not in these groups if cir-
(umstances require such use, or if
they need a car for sporting purposes,
'golf, tennis and swimming). The
permit for this latter group is valid
only during the hours of 6 a.m. to
9 p.m. each day.
Students will be obliged to state
on their applications whether or not
they are in one of the groups who
are exempt from these rules, and will
he requested at the time of registra-
tion to state whether or not they will
drive during the Summer Session.
They will then be required to give
definite information as to the make,
type, and license number of the car
to be used.
Students at Camp Davis, the Bio-

logical Station. the Camp for For-
estry and Conservation, and the Sta-
tion for Geography are subject to
the automobile regulations of these
These rules are in effect for the
summer Sessiun only.

An open house for freshnen will
be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thurs-
day and Friday, June 11 and 12. At
this time, refreshments will be served
and, along with the fun and infor-
mality of the occasion, the new stu-
dent will have the opportunity to look
around Lane Hall and see for himself
its many features.
Has Extensive Library
He will observe an unusually fine
record library which is open to any-
one at any time, a library equippe
with many books dealing with relig-
ious and philosophical subjects, and
a reading table complete with a great
variety of periodicals.
The first meeting of the freshman
discussion group will be 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday evening, June 24, in Lane
Hall. This group has always been
run by the freshmen themselves and
has, in the past, taken on all the
characteristics of an informal and
exciting "bull session." Here is pre-
sented a chance to discuss religious
problems, problems of ethics, and
current social problems with people
of various backgrounds and from dif-
ferent parts of the country. Occa-
sionally, a professor is invited to lead
the discussion on some particular
To Have Luncheons
Many other discussion groups will'
be formed and the popular Saturday
luncheon group will have its first
summer meeting at 12:15 p.m., June
20, in Lane Hall. After the informal
luncheon, group discussion will take
place on subjects similar to those
brought up in the freshman round
The regular open house-coffee hour
will continue through the summer
months and will be held from 4 p.m.
to 6 p.m. every Friday afternoon.
ane Hall will sponsor several "med-
itation" week-ends, the first of which
is scheduled for the week-end of
July 11. The group will go out to a
farm in the Irish Hills for a quiet
week-end of meditation and study.
There will also be week-ends in-
volving good fun and practical ex-
perience and service. These are work
holidays planned so that students can
participate in alleviating some of the
community problems of Ann Arbor
and Ypsilanti.

Community 'Callers"ToTeach
Square Dancing Are Available

When movies and dances start to
become routine entertainment, and
t'here is nothing else to do, the time
has come to get a group together and
try square-dancing. There are many
good callers in the vicinity who not
only call the dance, but teach the
The square dance or quadrille, as it
was called, originated in eighteenth
century France, and spread through
Germany and Great Britain, reaching
its height of popularity in the nine-
teenth century. It came to Ameri-
ca in the days of the pioneers, and
has recently been revived in many
parts of the country.
The dance itself has changed little
since its origin in France. Original-

ly it was danced by a set of two, four
or six couples forming a square, but
today usually only four couples par-
ticipate in a single set. The only
other important change in the dance
is its reduction in length. Where
there were originally five parts or
figures to a dance, there are now only
The figures used in square-dancing
are very interesting. The first figures
of the various dances are quite simi-
lar, but the second figures offer a
great deal of variety. Among the
most popular second changes are
the "Grapevine Twist" and "Dig for
the Oyster." The picturesque phras-
ing and rhyming of these calls adds
interest to the dance.
