'U' Students Plan
Tour of Europe
For a last fling before the army
reaches out its long arm, or just
a summer vacation, there is an
A group of college students,
composed almost entirely of stu-
dents from the University, will sail
on the "Queen Elizabeth" this
summer for an extensive tour of
England, France, Germany, Italy,
Switzerland and Holland.
Travelling in American cars,
which allow greater flexibility in
the itinerary, the tourists will vis-
it both famous and out-of-the-way
spots all over Europe.
One of the high spots of the
trip will be a tour of the medieval
German town of Rothenburg.
Accomodations will be in first
class hotels, many of them unique,
like the Skier's Lodge in the Black
Forest and the Gurten Kum Golf
Hotel in Bern.
The conductor of the tour is a
man with twenty years experience
in guiding groups around Europe
and he will be assisted by guides
in London, Rome and other cities.
In the larger centers, there will
be discussion groups arranged
with teachers and officials who
speak English fluently. It is hoped
to acquaint the students with the
conditions and problems of the
people in the various countries.
Because of the great flexibility

and leisurely pace of the tour, the
travelers will have plenty of time
for relaxation. Since there is nc
rigid itinerary and there will be
several cars, small groups can take
different routes and see, sights of
special interest to them.
The date of return to the United
States is up to each individual
tourist, since some of them may
want to stay longer than others.
Interested students may contact
Tom Leopold 4r Reudi Gingrass,
both of whom are going on the
tour, at NO 2-3256.

With the Union Amateur Photo
Contest drawing to a close, all en-
tries must be turned in at the Stu-
dent Offices on the main floor of
the Union by 5 p.m. today.
Judging of all prints entered,
scheduled for tonight or tomorrow,
will climax several weeks of plan-
ning and gathering entries on the
part of the Union student services


SELECTING the prize winners
will be Pat Cusick, E. J. Francisco
and J. W. Ransom, all representa-
tives of the various camera dealers
who have contributed prizes. Also
on the judging board will be two
faculty members.
Making their choices on the
basis of originality and clear-
ness, the judges will award an
Argus C-3 camera as grand prize
to the best overall print entered
in the contest.
Several gift certificates, as well
as an Ansco camera will be award-
ed to first and second place win-
ners in each of three divisions.
AN EXHIBITION of all pictures
entered in the contest will be held
.in the Union lobby during the first
two weeks of the coming semester.
The winning prints will be mark-
Aside from the prizes waiting
for lucky winners, there is also
a possibility that the top win-
ners will be published in a na-
tionally known magazine.
In planning the local contest,
the first of its kind on campus,
the committee also decided to
make arrangements for a national
contest as well.

HOPING TO thus give an out-
let to the local winners to com-
pete on a national scale and also
to have such a contest centered
here in Ann Arbor and at the Mi-
chigan Union, the men, first sent
out over 200 questionaires to the
members of the Association of Col-
lege Unions.
Headed by Mark Gallon, the
committee asked through these
forms, whether the various col-
leges at present held photo con-
tests, whether they would be in-

terested in doing so and espec-
ially if they thought the idea of
a national contest was feasible.
The responses received thus far
have been overwhelmingly in fav-
or of the idea of a national con-
test. In fact, it has become an in-
ternational proposition, for the
Universities of Mexico, Toronto
and British Colombia are interest-
ed also.
Most of these schools do not
have a local contest, but seem to
be interested in starting one. The

local Union is planning to send a
layout of plans used here on cam-
pus to any interested school, in or-
der to help them get started.
Tentatively planned to take
place in the spring, the national
contest would have its headquar-
ters here in Ann Arbor. Several
large camera manufacturers would
be invited to help with the plans.-
Judging and display of winners
would be involved, as well as co-
operation with several national
