37, the matriculation fees, the di-
ploma fee (except for duplicate
diplomas), fees for special cer-

tory fees in the Medical School
and hospital were abolished by
the Heard of Regents on Feb. 28,
1w36. As an offset for the ma-
triculation, diploma, and similar
fees abolished, semester fees were

Engineering College Anticipates
Increased Enrollment Of 200

Revival Of Industry Laid
To Heavier Demand For4
With the revival of industry since
1933 the demand for technically
trained men has increased propor-
tionately so that the total enrollment
in the College, undergraduate and
graduate students, has increased from
1645 in 1933-1934 to 1731 in 1934-
1935 and to 1942 in 1935-1936. Al-
though personnel officers of the em-
ploying companies are examining
graduates very critically as to profes-
sional training and character, prac-
tically three-fourths of all last year's

men have been placed. At present1
student interest in our curricula runsr
very strongly to Mechanical Engi-t
neering, Chemical Engineering, sot
that for the next three years or sot
these departments will be heavily
loaded. In all departments there is ax
decided increase in the grailuate work,
some 234 students being now enrolled
for the various Master's and Doctor's
degrees. The combined effect of thesec
factors leads to an expectation of a;
ten per cent increase in enrollment,
or a total of about 2100 students.
At present the College is reviewingj
its undergraduate courses and teach-
ing methods, seeking to improve the-
co-ordination and presentation of thei

material in the main fundamental
subjects common to all programs.
The College strives constantly to
have its training broad and funda-
mental, leaving specialization more
and more to graduate work. In thisE
latter field very notable developments
are planned in extensions of the wind
tunnel researches in Aeronautical En-
gineering; in the studies of heat
transfer, electric lighting, electronics,
television and radio in Electrical En-
gineering; in soil mechanics and its
relation to foundation bearing power
in Civil Engineering; and in Diesel
engine development, air conditioning,
and refrigeration in Mechanical En-
gineering. The department of Electri-
cal Engineering will offer a special
symposium in Electronics in the Sum-
mer Session of 1937.
In Engineering Mechanics a new
field of fluid mechanics will be devel-
oped. Since the beginning of the 20th
century there has been an enormous
increase in the knowledge of the be-

havior of fluids in motion. As a resultz
of this work new theories have beent
developed and substantiated by ex-t
perimental research. One of the mostt
important points resulting from thisc
work has been the recognition of the
fact that all fluids, such as air, water,
and lubricating oils, obey the same
fundamental laws. This activity inI
what is now known as "fluid mechan-
ics" has been greatly stimulated by
the development of aeronautics and
by such problems as the streamliningi
of railroad trains and automobiles.-
Plans are now being made to offerc
courses in which the fundamentals of
fluid mechanics are to be studied
along with some of the most import-i
ant engineering applications. Prof.;
R. A. Dodge of the Department of
Engineering Mechanics and Prof. M.
J. Thompson of the Department of
Aeronautical Engineering are now en-
gaged in the preparation of a text-
book on the subject which will be

ready for use in the second semester
of the year 1936-37. It is believed
that this will be the first textbook to
be published in this country which
deals with the fundamentals of fluid
flow in a manner suitable for presen-
tation to undergraduate engineering
The course in fluid mechanics will
be accompanied by a number of dem-
onstrations with models illustrating
applications to the flow of both air
and water. Apparatus for this work
is expected to be acquired early in the
fall and will be suitable for some
quantitative experimental work as
well as for demonstrations.
Along with these developments it
is planned to introduce a number of
advanced courses in which the ap-
plication of fluid mechanics to engi-
neering problems will be studied in
greater detail. Opportunities for the
execution of research work on prob-
lems of fluid flow will also be avail-

first taste of University life in Ann Arbor.

We welcome you here whole-heartedly.

It should be carefully noted that it
the student selects a division of con-
centration, which is a field of larger
scope than a department, he must
take 60 hours in that division, rather
than 30, which is all that is required
in the department of concentration.
A minimum of 120 hours is required
for graduation in the College of Lit-
erature, Science, and the Arts. .
Other rules pertaining to the stu-
dent's concentration program may be
found in the 1936-37 announcement
bulletin of the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts. These pages
are two of the most important in the
catalogue, and are deserving of theI
earnest study of the incoming fresh-
man. __ _
League Library
Affords Girls
Browsing Hour,
The League Library, which was
opened for the first time last year,
offers an array of books for recrea-
tional reading.
The library is located on the third
floor of the League. It is planned in
the same nature as the Hopwood Li-
brary in Angell Hall. However, it is
not an educational library, its chief
purpose being to afford a browsing
place for one's spare time.
When the library was opened last
September, 1000 books lined the
shelves. With the aid of the Under-
graduate Book Fund which was
formed, more than three hundred
books have -been added. These may
be taken out for a period of two
weeks with renewals, or they may be
read in the library.
Emphasis has been placed on mod-
ern drama, contemporary poetry, pop-
ular biography and fiction. Transla-

150 Freshmen
To Be Guests
At SCA Camp
Rendezvous Group Meets
Sept. 18 At Patterson
Like Fresh Air Camp
More than 150 freshmen will be
guests of the Student Christian Asso-
ciation atthe annual FreshmensRen-
dezvous Camp, to be held at the Pat-
terson Lake Fresh Air Camp, Sept.
18, 19 and 20.
Any first-year man may attend the
camp, which is held for the purpose
of allowing new students a chance to
make early acquaintances, and to ac-
quaint them with the various activi-
ties carried on at the University.
An extensive program of speeches
by prominent faculty members and
student leaders is now being planned,
according to William Wilsnod, '37,
president of the S.C.A., although ar-
rangements have not yet been com-
pleted. However, it is definite that
President Alexander G. Ruthven will
address the students as he has in pre-
vious years.
A charge of $1.75 i made for the
weekend, which includes all expenses:
Any freshman may enroll for the
camp now by sending an application
blank directly to the Student Chris-
tian Association at Lane Hall. The
program will not interfere with Or-
ientation Week activities, since ac-
tivities for all freshmen do not begin
until Tuesday.
Ira M. Smith, Registrar of the Uni-
versity, and Dr. Edward W. Blake-
man, Councelor of Religious Educa-
tion, will act as advisors for the camp,

You will soon discover that Ann Arbor is a great town... that Michigan is a great
university ... that friendships and business contacts here are really worthwhile.
You will soon discover, among other things that GOLDMAN is the largest and
foremost dry cleaner .i Ann Arbor... the one cleaner that has -enjoyed outstanding
preference among Michigan students for over 25 years ... the only dry cleaning firm
in the state of Michigan that combines MIRACLEAN, RE-TEXTURING and MOTH-
PROOFING into one complete service, and offers you this service at the price of
ordinary quality.
You will soon discover, when you send your first garment to GOLDMAN that

these 3 exclusive features make "clothes cleaned by Goldman"

so far superior to


cleaning quality that there is naocomparison.

Yes, you will soon discover that your dry cleaning is in capable hands when you
make GOLDMAN your permanent dry cleaner. May we have the pleasure of serving
you soon.
