Educators Compose More Than
Percent of Total; Four

An increase of 181 students for
the Summer Session over 1928 was
indicated by figures released yes-
terday by Dean Edward H. Kraus.
The School of Education with 1426
students enrolled has the largest
group for the summer and also
showed the greatest gain of any
college, having 292 more than last
year. Of the students in the edu-
cation school, 876 are graduate
The Graduate school is a close
second in increase, having a gain
of 206 and a total enrollment of
1405. An increase of 43 was shown
in the Colleges of Engineering and
Architecture, and 13 in the forest-
ry school. The remaining schools
showed a slight decrease in num-
Many States Represented
Including the University, 23 col-
leges and universities in Michigan,
90 in other states, and four in for-
eign countries are represented.
For the nine four-week courses
given as an experiment this year,
44 were enrolled, 18 of these being
graduates. These courses were in-
tended primarily for teachers who
were limited in time. Only three
courses will be offered during the
last four weeks.
Michigan sends 2029 students to
the Summer Session, followed in
order by Ohio with 332; Illinois,
172; New York, 130; Indiana, 125;
and Pennsylvania, 113. Forty-five
states and the District of Columbia
are represented.
Eighteen Foreign Countries
China leads the foreign countries
with 3, an increase of 19 over last
year. Canada is second with 22,
while there are 12 students from
the Philippines.
Other foreign countries from
which students come are Costa
Rica, Egypt, Germany, Haiti, Ha-'
waii, India Japan, Panama, Porto
Rico, France, Persia, Siam, Scot-
land, South America and Syria.
More than one-half of the total
enrollment of the Summer Session
is composed of teachers and school
officials, there being 1920 register-
ed. Of these, 1203 are in the Grad-
uate school, 409 in the education
school, and 219 in the literary col-

1,460 educators were present, but,
this year there are 1920 an in-
crease of 460.
The number of persons enrolled1

Golden Gate Boys To Team Up
Despite Brilliant Playing

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., July 11-
Coming from behind to take ad-

their opponents, Fritz Mercur,
Bethlehem, Pa., and J. McGilbert
Hall, South Orange, N. J., today
defeated Ben Gorchakoff and Ar-
thur Kussman, both of Los Angeles,
for the National Clay Court Dou-
bles Tennis Championship here.
Five sets were necessary before
the eastern duo downed Gorcha-
koff and Kussman, who, two weeks
ago, won the National Intercolle-
giate Doubles title. Scores were
10-12, 3-6, 6-2, 9-7, 6-4. The dou-
bles was the final of the cham-
pionship tournament, which was
interrupted repeatedly by rain.
Emmett Pard, of Chicago, won the
singles championship from Hall
Erratic overhead play by Kuss-
man kept the Golden -Gate boys in
hot water much of the time, even
while they were winning. Mercur
and Hall took every opportunity to'
direct the play at him, for they
found Gorchakoff on top of his
game and making brilliant returns
from placement.
The closeness of the match is in-
dicated by the point total. In the
first set, won by Gorchakoff and
Kussman in taking the second set,

be enjoyed Sunday morning by
those who care to take them. These
include a trip in the Maid of the

will be in order, on account of the
spray. In addition a shaft has'

Opportunity will be given stu-

Student Christian association Fresh'
Air camp. Fifteen boys have been1
brought to Ann Arbor to collect'
contributions from all those who
feel they can lend their financial
aid to so worthy a project. Since;
the students and alumni of the
University are the only supporters
of the Fresh Air camp, it is urged
that everyone should do his utmost
for its benefit.1
The Camp has successfully passed
eight seasons. It has given a 10-
day or a 12-day outing to a total1
of 2,783 boys from 16 cities, prin-
cipally from Detroit, or a total

put the boys in finer physical shape.
Story telling by counselors, talks by
faculty men on trees and stars,
imaginative tales told by some boys
all unite in the program to de-
velop mental alertness. The group

social growth all too frequently ab-
sent in the home life of boys from
the industrial centers. Then the
Catholic boys go to church in the
village, while a religious meeting is
held in camp affording some de-
velopment of the religious nature.
All around growth is the aim.
From the beginning students on
campus have gladly supported the
project on two annual "tag days."
Faculty members have shared and
gradually alumni and ftends have
been brought into the supporting
ranks in order through having a
standard size an efficient and eco-
nomical program could be put over

A Review by William J. Gorman
An enthusiastic and on the whole
capable cast hustles this highly
facetious and altogether ingenioust
variation of the halt-at-the-altar i
farce to really successful low com-
edy. The play's vivacity is much1
better than any of the sentiment in
it, and the director has acted ac- 't
cordingly, playing it broadly in1
slapdash manner for all its fun.c
With a few exceptions he has suc-
ceeded in making the members of.
the cast forget all ambition to dis- I
play a style and made them con- I
centrate on vivacity.,l
The result is on the whole pleas-I
ing. The audience rather enjoy 1
the cast's energy and delight in1
lines and situations. In this light,1
Alfred Foster approached a real<
achievement; for his part, being so!
long and probably exhausting, re-
quired real artistry to appear so1
natural and inartistic. His methodsj
of enunciation were grandly suit-j
able, the lines being now munched,
now spurted in infinite variety with
an altogether pleasing result. Tis
whole version of the blundering,
irresponsible bridegroom, with the
exception of the lack of restraint
which the general tone of the play
demanded of him, was professionalj
in chnrater-

Some of the minors in the cast
achieved the same engaging natur-
alness, successfully disguising with
their enthusiasm such care as went
into the part-Joe Jennett as the
"marrying" butler with the curious
habit of forgetting to sever pre-
vious ties, at times Doris Kerlin as
the kitten with the sharp claw,
Emile Reid as the petulant mother
of the "ewe-lamb" and of "little
Stephen." Though he gave many
of has lines with startling effect,
Mr. Hinkley's tones were too sten-
torian for the debonair bachelor
butterfly. Miss King's part I would
criticise. She essays character;
that is, she tries to draw attention
to her part, that of the malicious
but charming vamp, by conscious
acting. This is not the tone that
other characters give to their parts
and doesn't fit in with the direc-
tor's conception of the play as a
comedy of ludicrous situations.
