Officials Of Session Praise
Results Of Summer 's Work



' U

E, '24, WILL

Officials of the Summer session, yes-
terday expressed themselves as be-
ing highly pleased with the work of
the summer, and spoke with apprecia-
tion of the student body as a whole
Dean Kraus, who has been directing
the Summer sessions for many years,.
and upon whom the work of organiza-
tion and administration of the summer
work largely falls, in reviewing the
results of the term said: "The re-
sults of the session have been more
gratifying than ever before. In the
matter of attendance alone, the ses-
sion has been a success, for our in-
crease has been an increase of more
than ten percent, and in 23 other in-

stitutions, the increase has been lit-
te more than three percent. Mich-
igan is fast becoming known for its
summer work. The students that have
come here are usually recognized to
be of superior type since so many car-
ry degrees. Out of the 3,054 students
who have attended the session, 948
have been the holders of degrees.
This tends to make a student body
that is above average."
Excursions Popular
In speaking of the various elements
besides the purely academic that have
gone to make the session a success,
Dean Kraus spoke of the work of the
excursions which were taken every
week. There are 12 excursions in all,,
with two main excursions, one to Ni-
agara Falls, the other to Put-in-Bay,
both under the direction of Prof. Jesse
Rowe, of the University of Montana.
It is estimated that fully 500 people
availed themselves of the opportunity;
to visit the places of interest about
the city while they spent their sum-a
mer here. Excursionists toured the
Ford plant in Detroit, and other fac-
tories and industries of special inter-t
est, they visited Jackson, with its pris-
on, the Consumers' power plant. Allj
the excursions were supervised and
planned by Carleton F. Wells. These
have become an important part of the
summer course. Started last year as
a new thing, they have so increased in
popularity that their reception among
the student body has warranted their
being placed on the regular list of
events for the summer program.
Special Courses Attract
Beside sthe excursions the special'
courses that were offered by the Un-
iversity have proved an especial at-
traction. The courses In Insulin for
practitioners have been so popular
and profitable that their success may

This date is only one day before the

The outlook' for the possible num-
ber of students next year is problem-
atical now, but there is certain to be
an increase of 10 per cent over the
totals for last year. This figure is
not abnormal, but shows a steady and
healthy increase in enrollment. Close
to one thousand have been admitted
already into the freshman classes for
next year.
