Educational interests are finding
their way into the moving picture
industry. In a response to the re-
quest of the William S. Fox movie-
tone corporation the alumni asso-
ciation of the University has sent
several reels for examination and
study by the moving picture syn-
dicate.
The Fox Movietone corporation
is interested in an educational ex-
periment employing talking pic-
tures as a method of conveying in-
formation. In order to obtain an
adequate background as a basis
upon which to construct this rev-
olutionary system of education, the
alumni association has been, re-
qluested to submit the University's
educational film.
An extensive study is being made
of the various systems of study in
the different branches of the Uni-
versity. This film which presents
a comprehensive survey of most of
the departments and laboratories
of the University of Michigan af-
fords a comparatively simple meth-
od of obtaining knowledge concern-
ing a considerable portion of the
systems employed here.
By means of this educational film
alumni and other individuals scat-
tered over the United States have
become better acquainted with the
workings of the University. It has
been shown before alumni associa-
tions, in high schools and even in
some commercial houses in the
Western part of the United States.
It has also traveled to some of the
outlying provinces including the
Philippine Islands.
This picture is a true and ac-
cu rate representation of University
life in a social way as well as tak-
ing in the scholastic phase of the
students life here at Ann Arbor. Jo
Chamberlin, '28, and Marian Wel-
les, '28, have leading roles in this
excellent portrayal of the student
life at Michigan.

A visit to the General Motors
proving ground near Milford, will
be the sixth of the summer series
of excursions. The grounds occupy
a central position almost equally
distant from the four great auto-
mobile manufacturing centers of
the state, including Detroit, Flint,
Lansing, and Pontiac. All sorts of
road surfaces, including gravel,
dirt, macadam, and concrete, have
been constructed within the 1300
acre area, which includes stretches
of both hilly and level country.

FIRST TRIP TO PLANT

A large triangular concrete speed
track nearly four miles in length,
with banked turns, is found at the
northern end of the grounds. Here
stock cars may be run at speeds in
excess of 100 miles an hour with
