Students in Play Production to
Appear in Plays Offered
in Summer Session.
Chester M. Wallace, of Carnegie
Institute, E. W. Hickman
to Assist Direction.
Opening with Philip Barry's bril-
liant comedy, "Holiday," in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre tomor-
row night, Play Production's Mich-
igan Repertory players will offer a
series of seven presentations which
will appear the latter half of each
week during the entire Summer
Session, a new play being produced
each Wednesday night and contin-
uing through Saturday night.
Mr. Chester M. Wallace, head of
the Drama school at Carnegie In-
stitute of Technology and one of
the foremost amateur directors in
this country, who last summer was
guest director for Play Production,
has returned to assist Mr. Valentine
B. Windt in the summer produc-
tions. Mr. Elmer W. Hickman, who
has spent many successful years in
the professional theatre, is return-
ing as an amateur director.
Comedy Is First.
"Holiday," the initial play of the
series, deals with the antics of New
York's smart set and is rich with
Barry's sparkling dialogue. With
Donald Ogden Stewart, the humor-
ist, and Hope Williams in the lead-
'ing roles, the play had a long and
successful run in New York.
The program also includes such
plays as "The Criminal Code," a
powerful drama of prison life as
seen from the prisoner's angle. It
has not yet been released for ama-
teur production and was secured
only by special arrangement with
'the author, Martin Flavin.
"Close Harmony" by Dorothy
Parker and Elmer Rice is also on
the program. This play, when pre-
sented in New York was described
by many of the critics as the finest
comedy of American middle class
life ever written. Jules Romain's
delightful French farce, "Doctor
Knock," which is aimed at the
practices of quack doctors, will also
be mounted.
Rickman Play Listed.
"The First Year," by Frank Cra-
ven, which is scheduled for produc-
tion, is a comic tragedy with inti-
mate glimpses of domestic and soc-
ial life. Also included on the list
from which the plays will be chos-
en, are "A Marriage of Conveni-
ence," by Sidney Grundy, a brilli-
ant and sophisticated French cos-
tume play; a dramatization of Du-
mas' "Three Musketeers" made by
Elmer Hickman who will direct the
summer production personally;
"Beyond the Horizon," Eugene
o'Neill's Pulitzer prize winner;
"Liliom," by Ferenc Molnar, a pic-
ture of Hungarian carnival life;
and "Ulysses," by Stephen Phillips,
a poetic drama of the late nine-
teenth century. Seven plays from
this list will be selected for public
Season tickets which are good for
any performance are priced at $4.00
and may be obtained at the box of-
fice of the theatre or at a booth
in the corridor of University hall.

Speakers Will Participate
25-Week Program Series
of Broad Scope.

Plans are nearing completion for
a series of Michigan radio pro-
grams during the coming year
which promises to be of broader
scope and more universial interest
than any series yet presented, ac-
cording to a recent announcement
by Prof. Waldo M. Abbot of the
rhetoric department, the director
of broadcasting.
This series, which is to be broad-
cast over station WJR, Detroit, will
commence on September 28 and
will continue through 25 weeks ex-
cluding vacation periods. Accord-
ing to the present program outline,
300 speakers from the faculties of
the University will be required.
The Michigan Night programs,
which have proved so popular dur-
ing the last six years, will be con-
tinued. Each of these programs,
which will be presented at 8 o'-
clock every Saturday night, will
consist of three ten-minute talks
by members of the University fac-
ulties, and music by the School of
Music faculty and students. These
programs are to be addressed par-
ticularly to adults, according to
Professor Abbot.
On Sundays at 3:30 o'clock, a
program will be broadcast by the
Extension division of the Univer-
sity, directed to the Parent Teach-
ers associations of Michigan. Pro-
fessor Abbot states that more than
75,000 listeners are assured for this
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
and Thursday of each week, a one-
half hour program will be broad-
cast from Morris hal, starting at
1:30 o'clock in the afternoon. This
program will follow a popular fea-
ture, "The National Farm and
Home Hour," and thus it will be
assured of an audience already cre-
ated before it goes on the air. Pro-
fessor Abbot has arranged with a
number of Michigan high schools to
receive these programs in assem-
blies. The audience will therefore
include high school students and
teachers, as well as housewives and
rural listeners. Two twelve-minute
talks and a six-minute music inter-
im will be presented in the half-
hour period.
According to Professor Abbot, va-
rious departments of the Univer-
sity are being asked to supply
speakers for a series of talks. Each
group will then present four or
more successive lectures on assoc-
iated topics on succeeding after-
noon programs. Speakers from two
groups will be on each program,
and each department will com-
mence a program before an as-
sociated department has completed
its series.
Requests have already been re-
ceived from alumni for series of
talks on special subjects. Public
health, history, languages, art and
research are among the suggested

"Pet aversions as to what con-
stitutes a worse sort of racial cross
have been the basis of much pub-
licly expressed opinion on the in-
termixture of races," said Prof. A.
Franklin Shull of the Zoology De-
partment of the University, in an
illustrated lecture Monday after-
noon at the Natural Science audi-
torium, on the subject "A Biologist
Looks at Immigration."
Quoting the opinion of Dr. Rothel
H. Johnson that the mixture of
Chinese and Filipino peoples pro-
duces a superior stock. Professor
Shull declared that, "no one knows
from experimental or observational
evidence that hybrids are inferior
to the parent stocks.
Examine Before Immigration.
"Immigration laws should be bas-
ed on discovering .whether the im-
migrant is a desirable human be-
ing and not on geographical boun-
daries," he continued. "One can
learn more about an individual by
examining the family history of the
close blood relatives than by sub-
jecting the applicant to an indi-
vidual examination," Professor
Shull suggested that the prospec-
tive immigrant should be examined
abroad before his departure for the
United States. "The cost of such
a process would be no hindrance to
its success," he said.
Economic factors had played a
most important part in our immi-
gration legislation so far but great-
er attention was now being given to
the biologic effects of immigration,
and still greater attention will be
paid to them, "for," said Professor
Shull, "eventually intermarriage
takes place between the descend-
ants of the immigrants and the de-
scendants of the earlier inhabitants
of the country. Up to 1880 north-
western Europe supplied the bulk
of our immigrants but since then
southeastern Europe has taken the

contributed more than their share
to the inmates of these institutions.
Although Professor Shull did not
consider these findings as final,

into the problem, he considered the

Summer Regulation
Allows Use of Cars
to Many Students
All students, regardless of which'
college they may be registered in,
who were enrolled during the past
year in this or any other school, are
required to register their cars in
the dean of students' office, W. B.
Rea stated yesterday.
Automobile permits may be ob-
tained for recreational purposes by
all students who are not on proba-
tion or warning, and who are not
repeating or making up courses
which they have previously taken.
Limit Social Use.
A limited social use of cars forj
the purpose of transportation for f
such sports as golf, tennis, and
swimming is permitted under thisU
ruling. By no means is it to bet
taken however, that any social use
of cars will be tolerated after 9
o'clock at night. Any mixed driv-
ing after this hour will be inter-
preted as a violation of the permit.
Aimless driving about town will also
be considered as a violation of the
automobile ban, he explained.
Rulings restricting the student
use of cars for the Summer Session
went into effect at 8 o'clock Mon-
day morning. Those who were en-
gaged in professional occupations
during the preceding school year of
1929-30 and were not enrolled as
students either here or at other
colleges and universities are exempt
from the observance of the ruling.
It will not be necessary for such
students to register their carsdat
the office of the Dean of Students,
provided they have handed in an
automobile registration card at the1
office of the school in which they
are enrolled.
Must Present Applications.
All other students, regularly en-
rolled as such during the preceding
year, must present applications at
room 2 University hall accompanied
by letters of approval from their-
parents, for driving permits. Any
act of driving, however, prior to ob-
taining permits and attaching tags
in the approved manner, will con-
stitute a violation of the ruling and
will be treated accordingly. There-
fore, any student whose circum-
stances admit the possibility of
confusion with regard to driving
privileges should call at the office
of the Dean of Students without
