U' Fresh Air
Camp Serving
Patterson Lake Site In 14
Years Has Taken Care Of
6,00 YoungBoys
The University of Michigan Fresh
Air camp, described by Presiden
Ruthven as a "great project in human
engineering," has served during the
existence of 14 years the needs o
nearly 6,000 underprivileged boys
from Ann Arbor and the Detroit vi
Funds for the support of the fresh
air camp are obtained through sub-
scriptions from townspeople and stu-
dents. An all-campus jamboree is
held every fall, usually in Hill Audi-
torium, the money raised by thi
event going to the support of the
camp, which is located at Patterson
Lake, about 25 miles from Ann Arbor
A tag day is held every spring
sponsored by the University and the
Student Christian Association. A sup-
plementary tag day was held during
this Summer Session, in order that
the camp could finish out the sea-
About 250 youths spent four weeks
at the camp this summer. Two
groups of boys who had not had the
opportunity to enjoy recreational fa-
cilities have the chance at the camp
to swim, canoe, hold hikes and enjoy
the best foods, including fresh fruits
and vegetables daily.
The attendance at the camp has
been increasing each year. Accord-
ing to George Alder, director of the
camp, "the purpose of the camp is
to provide a means for underpriv-
ileged boys to enjoy the advantages
of a cosmopolitan life and to teach
the campers how to be more useful
and better citizens."
Starting from a small group of
tents 14 years ago, the camp has
grown until it now has many cabins
for the boys and a new main building.
The new main structure is also avail-
able for use by organized University
groups during the winter months.

officials compare preference lists of
rushees and fraternities and send
cards to freshmen informing them
of the fraternities to which they are
to be pledged. Fraternities are also
informed of the rushees they have

Glee Club Holds ]
For Freshmen
Second Semester


The Women's Glee Club reorganized
as the Stanley Chorus was incorpo-
rated into the League three years
The organization was founded by
women in this school who were al-
lowed to take courses there and the
School of Music was not connected
with the University in any way. The
club was at this time a purely social
one for girls who enjoyed music.
In time students enrolled in the
other schools were allowed to take
courses in the School of Music and
finally in 1930, it was incorporated
into the University. At that time
wonmen from the other schools who
were interested in music were per-
mitted to join the glee club.
Three years ago the Freshmen
Girls' Glee Club which had been
rather inactive for a time was dis-
continued, and the Women's Glee
Club became the Stanley Chorus. The
Chorus is named after Albert Stanley
who for several years was a member
of the faculty of the School of Music
and who was known throughout the
country for his musical.accomplish-
This past year the Chorus included
60 women. Regular tryouts are held
and members are chosen in this way.
It has been planned to make the
membership requirements more rigid
this year by making the tryout tests
more thorough and difficult. Fresh-
men women are eligible for member-
ship at the close of their first se-
The group's advisers are Palmer
Christian, professor of Organ in the1
School of Music and the University
organist, and Dr. Earl V. Moore, of
the School of Music and the musical
director of the University.1
The group presents several local
as well as out of town concerts
throughout the year. Last year the
Chorus gave a Christmas concert,
Sunday night concerts at the League
and concerts in the various junior
high schools in the city. Two yearss
ago the Chorus was the only organi-t
zation of its type to participate inE
the Iay Festival program.k

Next year's swimming season look
like the greatest of the gredt, eve
, from this early date, and our opti
misim is shared by Co-Captain
l'rank Barnard and Jack Kasley.
The past year's team rode to it
third straight National Collegiat
championship "on the backs" of fou
stellar divers, and while three of th
four will be missing next winter, thei:
loss will be more than compensate
by the addition of the greatest cro
>f freshmen ever to hit Ann Arbo
-most of them free-style perform-
>rs, the stroke that Michigan's stil
strong team was very definitely weaka
in during the past year.
Co-Captain Barnard was the onl3
Michigan free-style swimmer to qual-
ify for the finals in either the Big
ren or Collegiate championships
winning the Conference quarter-mile
taking third in the 220 in the samne
meet, and placing fourth in the N.C.-
A.A. 1500-meter swim. Next seasor
Barnard will probably confine him-
self to the sprint relay.
In contrast to this year's dismissal
showing, at least six free-stylers of
the past season's freshman squad will
undoubtedly place in the Conference
meet. Barnard's place in the dis-
tances will be taken by Tom Haynie
Dave Holmes and Ed Kent, the first
two of whom consistently defeated
the Big Ten champion this winter.
Haynie, who won four places in the
National A.A.U. meet this winter, i
almost a sure bet for the Olympic
team, should he decide to give up the
summer for the trip:
Of the present crop of Varsity
sprint men, Bob Mowerson, who
makes championship times on the
end of a relay team but fails in in-
dividual competition, will probably
be the only letter-winner to swim
regularly next season.
Bill Farnsworth, Ed Kirar, Leo
Tomski and Baker Bryant are four
of Coach Mann's first-year dash men
who have shown enough ability to
become favorites to displace the Con-
ference and Collegiate 50 and 100-
yard free-style champions next year.
By using Barnard and Mowerson, and
at times Paul Keeler and Erwin Mc-
Carty of this year's team, together
with this stellar quartet, Coach Mann
will be able to place 'freshmen in the
50 and 100 and have only one or two
men doubling in the relays. All this
without loss of strength in any of the
Co-Captain Kasley, the world's
greatest swimmer in his stroke, will
handle the breast-stroke duties and
probably continue to break more
world records, but he will be ably
seconded by Bill Crittenden, letter
winner in 1935. Ed VanderVelde of
the Varsity and the versatile Kent al-
so will see some action.
The Varsity appears to be well
fortified in the back-stroke with
Harry Rieke, who came up fast in
his first taste of collegiate competi-
tion this semester, and Fred Cody,
second in the Conference and third
in the Nationals in 1935. Haynie and
Kent are a pair of all-around per-
formers who can be called upon to
turn over dn their backs, and Fred
Robinson of the freshmen is sure to
make his presence felt.
Ben Grady is the only one of the
quartet of divers who have carried
Michigan to national honors for the
past two year
