Pleasant Study Hall
Ann Arbor will not be a dull, un-
interesting place this summer for
those who keep in close contact with
League activities, for the program
of this student meeting place prom-
ises to be filled.
Mis Ethel McCormick, social ad-
viser of the League, and the Sum-
mer League Council will be in charge
of arranging a schedule which will
include entertainment and special
events in the lines of dancing, bridge
and social hours.
Dances To Be Held
In keeping with the standards set
last year, bridge hours may be held
throughout the summer. Further in-
formation about the definite plans
will be disclosed at an early date.
Following the policy of the spring
semester, informal dances will be
held in the League Ballroom on Fri-
day and Saturday nights. Last year
novelty dances were held each week-
end. They were attended by students
either in couples or singly and host-
esses were present. Lively crowds
patronized these dances as the League
proved a cool, refreshing place to
spend a weekend evening. Even in
summer school, students do 'relax
"once in a while.''
If You Want To Study ...
If the weather should become cool
enough to permit a bit of studying,
the League furnishes campus women
with a comfortable, quiet place to
carry on this activity. The library,
tucked away on the third floor, is
equipped with a large and useful
collection of books. Comfortable
chairs and a pleasant atmosphere
combine to make studying as bear-
able as possible, even in summer.
Rooms for meetings, luncheons
and teas are available to all women.
Specify the number of people to be
taken care of and the purpose for
which you want the room, and allow
the League to "take care of the rest."
Dancing classes, in charge of Miss
McCormick and Barbara McInt e,
will be held weekly during the sr -
mer. They will include instructions
in "both beginning and intermediate
dancing. This plan proved success-
ful. last summer and was well at-
tended by numerous students.
Included in the preceding group
will be square dancing classes, to
pe held weekly throughout the Sum-
mer Session. Plans are being made
to obtain the services of Benjamin
B. Lovett, of the Edison Institute, to
,supervise the instruction for the fifth
consecutive year. Mr. Lovett is ac-
companied in his instruction by a
seven-iece square dance orchestra.
The lessons are presented free of
charge to all students through the
courtesy of Henry Ford, of Dearborn.
'Ensian Will Put Out
Summer Directory
Where can I get ahold of -?
What is 's telephone number?
All this and more will be revealed in
the summer directory published an-
nually by the 'Ensian staff.
In this directory one can find the
name, class, Ann Arbor address, home
address, and telephone number of
every person on campus in addition
to the numbers and addresses of the
campus offices.
Although the summer directory will
not contain as many names as that
of the regular session, the size of the
book will be larger in so much as
each sheet will be the same size as
the Ann Arbor directory.

To Head Committee

Many Dorms;
Halls To Open
For Summer
Recreational Facilities Will Fill
Spare Hours; Tennis, Softball,I
Archery, Others To Be Offered
Ann Arbor heat and summer rain
are renowned, so that summer session
students are busy making plans for
rooms with an eye towards comfort,
coolness and convenience. Since life
will be far from one continuous day
of relaxation, a cool room to return
to will be welcome to any student.
Applications for rooms are being
received at the office of the Dean of
Students for men and the Dean of
Women for women. Men students
attending the 16 week term will be
able to choose between Fletcher Hall
or one of the six or eight open dormi-
tories in the West Quadrangle, while
medical students planning to attend
the full term may make their resi-
dence in Victor Vaughn House.
Various Halls Open
Betsy Barbour House and Jordah
Hall will be open to undergraduate
women for the full 16 week term.
Also,Helen Newberry Residence,
Stockwell Hall, and University House
will be open to graduate students who
are attending the eight week Session.
Board will be required to be t aken
at all residence halls except Uni-
versity House and Fletcher Hall.
These houses are popular with grad-
uate students who wish to live in
smaller groups and to take meals as
they please.
Tennis, softball. archer y and other
sports form an attr act ion for many
who will wish to take a few momrent..
relaxation from their studies With
such recreational facilities near at
hand women students will find their
days well balanced with play as well
as work.
Many fraternity and sorority hous-
es as well as league houses will be
open to underclasn cn for either the
16 or eight week *erms. However.
rooms are greatly in demand, and the
choicest will soon be gone.
Members of the pihysical education
department will he Dr. Margaret
Bell, Miss Ruth Bloomer, Miss Laurie
Campbell. Miss Marie Hartwig, Miss
Betty King, Mrs. George Miller and
Miss Jesselene Thomas. Both Bar-
bour Gym and the W.A.B. will be

New Summer Term Social
Committee To Start Duties1
At Beginning Of Semester1
Council Will Plan 1
Unusual Activities
Petitioning anc ir1merviewing for
positions on the Summer Session
social committee are now over, and1
the new committee will start work
on the first day of the summer se-
Directing the weekly meetings and
overseeing the work of the other
members is Charlotte Thompson,
president of the committee. She is
responsible for cmplete cooperation
among the chairmen and for the
group working as a unit.
Luties Of Chairmen
The judiciary chairman takes care
of the sign out sheets for the league
houses, dormitories and sororities.
She helps to formulate the rules for
the term with theDean of Women,
and then her committee makes de-
cisions on cases of violations of the
rules. The judiciary committee for
this summer will help to choose com-
mittee heads, and members and
chairmen of the various projects.
The social chairman plans the
social calendar for the summer, in-
cluding many weekend dances, bridge
games, and dancing lessons. Respon-
sible for seeing that these affairs are
publicized in the Daily, by posters,
and elsewhere to the fullest extent.
is the publicity chairman.
Plan New summer Activities
Many suggestions for unprecedent-
ed activities for the summer session
committee have been suggested. It is
hoped that this year representatives
from various organizations may be
chosen to work in cooperation with
the committee members, and that de-
fense work may be included again as
a major activity.
This summer the committee will as-
sume duties for a full 16 weeks. Posi-
tions on the various committees may
be petitioned for at the beginning
of the summer. They are being left
open until the start of the new term
in order to give the new students a
chance to participate.
Program Is Planned
By Gradua te School
Graduate students attending the
eight week summer session will find
their social activities well provided
for, with plans for weekly functions
well under way at the Horace Rack-
ham Graduate School. Although
plans have not been completed, many
activities will continue as they have
in past summers.
Welcoming coffee hours will be held
the first week of the term to greet
those just arriving, and for the rest
of the session one coffee hour will
he held each week. Dances will again
be held every two weeks in the As-
embly hall terrace of the Rackham
Butiding, where students weary of
Ann Arbor work and heal will be

Courses To Run Three Months
Under Auspices of Engineering
Defense War Training Program
Michigan's College of Engineering,
noted on campus for its efficient,
straight-forward, streamlined atti-
tude and design minus most frills,
may soon be provided with feminine
touches some 40 strong when the
college opens its doors to women dur-
ing the summer semester for a full-
time course in surveying, topographic
mapping, and photo-grammetry.
Given under the auspices of the
Engineering Sciences and Manage-
ment Defense Training program of
the United States Office of Educa-
tion, the purpose of the course is to
supply personnel trained in the prin-
ciples of making maps from aerial
photographs, in the operation of
stereoscopic machines, and in the re-
lated principles of surveying and
topographic mapping.
Recruiting for this course, which
will start July 6 and continue
through until Oct. 3, 1942, will be
under the direction of Miss Ethel A.
McCormick, social director of the
League and Assistant Dean -of Wom-
en. The student offices of the League
will also aid the new program. Per-
sons completing the course will be
available for employment in the
National Defense Mapping program,
directed by the U. S. Corps of Engi-
neers and carried out by five Federal
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the en-
gineering college announced that
present plans will allow about 40
women to take the course. Qualifi-
cations for admission include either
two years of civil engineering experi-
ence, or two years of college training
with a major study in engineering,
architecture, physics, chemistry,
mathematics, forestry, or geology.
However, for women without these
qualifications, admission may be se-
cured after three and one-half years
of college study in any other field if
the applicant has had trigonometry
in high school or college.
. The Dean has also pointed out
that the women in this class will
readily find jobs, especially in photo-
grammetrical mapping and the work
related to it. This course will per-
mit those who successfully complete
it and meet all other prerequisites to
qualify in the Federal Civil Service
examination for engineering aid, and
photogrammetric option at a salary
of $1800 a year and the lower grades
at salaries of $1620 and $1440 a year.
Tuition and similar charges upon the
women will be paid by the federal
government, but textbooks. trans-
portation and subsistence must be
furnished privately.


Ann Arbor, located in the scenic
vacationland of Michigan, offers
many unique recreational facilities
for a town of its size. Within a
radius of only a few miles, there
are opportunities for at least a dozen
of the popular outdoor summer sports
as well as many indoor recreations.
Fresh-air fiends can hike, canoe,
fish, roller skate, swim, cycle, sail,
ride horseback, play golf, tennis, and
baseball, as well as organize picnics.
Let's Go Swimming
For swimming enthusiasts, the Hu-
ron River and nearby lakes help to
keep the temperature down. The
municipal Bathing Beach is located
near the city limits on Long Shore
Drive, and offers supervision in the
way of life guards as well as the
cooling aqua and floats.
For those who do not require su-
pervision there is Barton Pond, form-
ed by the Detroit Edison Dam, which
can bereached Via either the Huron
River Drive or Barton Shore Drive.
Farther on is Delhi Park, five miles
away; Loch Alpine, six miles away;
and Hudson Mills, 14 miles away.
Ten miles north of Ann Arbor on
US 23 is Whitmore Lake which fea-
tures privately owned beaches as well
as many summer homes. Eight miles
away, in the direction of Ypsilanti,
is located the Rawsonville Dam; and
16 miles out the Dexter Road is Por-
tage Lake, which offers the added
advantage of being shallow enough
for those who are not Johnny Weis-
mullers to cool off.
For The Anglers
Many of these places plus Island
Park and Dexter-Huron Park offer
picnic facilities as well. For the fish-
erman, the surrounding lakes yield
bluegills, sunfish, darting perch,
carp, and catfish. Canoes may be
rented at Saunders' Canoe Livery, on
Long Shore Drive and a few sailboats
are to be had on Barton Pond, which
features a three-mile course.
Golf and tennis enthusiasts will
find many tennis courts and golf
courses in the vicinity, and just be-
yond the city limits are facilities for
horseback riding.
Bicycling offers not only a means
of transportation, but also a great

deal 01 enjoyment. The Huron River
Drive, and Barton Hills are among
the many popular cycling places
nearby. Hiking fans and especially
those who are camera addicts can
find many scenic spots in the vicin-
ity, among them, the Arboretum. Eb-
erwhite Woods and Huron Hills.
Within Ann Arbor itself are oppor-
tunities to bowl, and to rent equip-
ment for badminton, volleyball, ar-
chery, or squash to name only a
few. Available also are the usual
diversions of movies, lectures, plays,
concerts, not to mention the enter-
tainment provided by an afternoon
at the Museum. Enterprising young
people have been forming square
dancing clubs, and hiring callers to
teach them the old dances.
Featuring foreign films and reviv-
al of well-known American pictures,
the Art, Cinema League will present
programs this summer in the Rack-
ham Building.

Wolverine Co-op
Will Have Varied
