With such rapid progress Dr.
Bell, chairman of the Women's

predicts ahat after 25 years of
planning, the pool will be in full,

been completed according to Mack
Habscher, engineer. He expects the
structure to be finished in the fall.
Currently 17 carpenters, 20 la-
borers, five bricklayers, electri-
cians and plumbers are working

table benches, a grandstand, and

Taking advantage of a tropical
vacation plus college credits, over
20 University students are plan-
ning to invade the Hawaiian Is-
lands to attend summer school at

cal setting of sun, sand and surf,
.these "U" students will enroll on
June 24 for a six week summer ses-

five colleges: Teacher's, Arts and
Sciences, Applied Sciences, Agri-
culture, and Business Admin-
istration. It is on the accredit-
ed list of the U.S. Office of Ed-
cation and the curriculum is
similar to that of universities on
the mainland.
Each summer many world re-
nowned professors from the Orient,

Middle East, Europe, and all sec-
tions of the United States come to
the Islands to teach their special-
ties during the summer session.
The University of Hawaii is rec-
ognized as one of the leading uni-
versities in the world for its trop-
ical agriculture study program and
its courses in philosophy, histpry,
economics, art and literature of
the Orient and Pacific.
Besides the opportunities to
develop the mind, a summer
session At the Hawaiian univers-
ity offers students, in their after
class hours, the chance to de-
velop their bodies.
