Summer Session's
Enrollment Grows
The University Summer Session has
the largest enrollment this year that
it has had in its existence of more
than 20 years. Nearly 5,000 students
The great majority of the students
are graduate students who are in
residence working on advanced de-
grees, although a good number of
regular students attend the session.
The University sponsors an exten-
sive program of speakers, all specia-
lists in their subject, for several af-
ternoons of each week of the Summer
Session. The Michigan League and
the Michigan Union collaborate in
providing social affairs, which usually
take the form of dances and teas, al-
though picnics are sometimes given.
The Repertory Players, under Uni-
versity sponsorship ,entertain with a
play each week.
An even greater enrollment is ex-
pected next year.

Incoming freshmen to the Univer-
sity will find that the majority of
men's campus activities revolve
around one principal hub-the Mich-
igan Union.
At the Union a multifold program
is carried on, including a recrea-
tional, academic and student govern-
ment schedules.
The Men's Council, heading the
new student government plan inaug-
unted last fall, makes its headquar-
tens in the Union. Miller Sherwood,

Council for the coming year, Thomas

The process consists of adding a secret formula to the clean-
ing solvent which in solution breaks into minute molecules and
passes through the weave of garments picking up any and all
soil, dust and foreign matter.
The MICROCLEAN process was brought forward as an ad-
vanced step over the gasoline soap dry cleaning, even still used
by many cleaners, leaving at times an odor. This, however, is
not a gasoline odor as many think, but decayed animal fat soap
which is impossible to rinse out - thus, when worn and brought
to body heat, gives off a sweet unpleasant odor.

We also have in connection with

Monthly statements will be sent
directly to the student or to the
parents for their approval, which-

We feel this service is one to be
considered, as our credit records are

September 2nd starts the felt hat season this fall. After this
date woe be unto any Freshman caught wearing a straw hat.
Felt hats vary in price anywhere from $2.00, $10.00 and up.
Good hats range from $4.00 and up. The big difficulty is that 'a
cheap hat is made from wool which is very unsatisfactory, as
it does not hold the block or shape well. A felt hat is made from
rabbit fur felted together; that is, pressed together.
Felt hats need cleaning and blocking the same and nearly as
often as suits to be kept looking well.
First the hat is measured for size (a hat one size too large or
small can be changed to fit) then thoroughly cleaned, not just
hand-brushed and the dirt spread around, next deodorized which
also fumigates, killing all germs.
Next the chapeau is placed on a block the proper style and
size and machine blocked on exactly the same equipment as is
used by leading hat manufacturers -same as Dobbs, Stetson,
Each hat is again measured for size before packing in individual
boxes ready for delivery.
Badly faded or worn ribbons may be replaced at a very nomi-
nal cost, also leather perspiration band. Rims may be narrowed
to change the style and bring an out-of-date hat to present-day

diciary committee for investigation

prepare for the University discipli-
nary committee a report stating what
disciplinary actions are recommended.
The Union also has its own student
government and the president of the
Union for the coming year is Herbert
B. Wolfe, '37, and the recording sec-
retary is William S. Struve, also
'37. All men in the undergraduate
schools of the University are eligible
to try out for positions on the ex-
ecutive council of the Union. Fresh-
men, providing their academic work
is satisfactory, become eligible to ap-
ply for positions after one semester's
residence on the campus.
The executive council for the com-
ing year, chosen last May, is made
up entirely of men in the junior
class. It includes Laurence G. Briggs,
H. Murray Campbell, Samuel M.

Four Major Writing Fields
Included In Contest; Are
Major, Minor Divisions
For the best work done by students
in creative writing, the University an-
nually awards prizes totaling around
$10,000. This money was provided
by the late Avery Hopwood, a grad-
uate of the University, and the con-
test is known as the "Hopwood Con-
According to Mr. Hopwood's will
one fifth of his estate was set aside
for the purpose sketched in the above
Four major fields of writing are in-
cluded in the Hopwood Contest, name-
ly, poetry, drama, fiction, and essay
Prizes are distributed in each of these
divisions while the contest itself em-
braces two divisions.
The former, known as the major
awards are open only to graduates
students and seniors and carry the
largest cash value. The latter, or
minor awards, are open to all quali-
fied undergraduate students. Qual-
ifications include registration in the
English composition course or a
course in the journalism department.
In addition to the main awards,
the Hopwood Committee, which ad-
ministers the bequest, has in recent
years established a special awards
contest for freshmen. The freshman
division is patterned along the same
lines as its prototype, the main con-
test, and carries cash awards of $50,
$30, and $20 for first, second, and
third, respectively in each of the four
fields of writing.
This year's contest will be the sev-
enth since the original competition
in 1930-31. The freshman division
was founded the following year and
takes place earlier in the year than
the general contest of major and
minor awards. The latter holdsits
,deadline for manuscripts some date
in April, as yet not set.
with occasional "name bands"" being
brought in as added attractions.
Construction has already been
started for the enlargement of the
Union. The tap room will be made
twice its present size through the
lengthening of the basement floor.
Many more rooms will be added, giv-

portunity to live in the Union dormi-
Although the present construction is
already under way, through funds se-
cured from outside sources, a Federal
allotment of funds for the addition
to the Union is at this writing await-
ing approval by President Roosevelt.
Should this additional grant of funds
come through, 75 new rooms for men
students will be available, acrding

Registration for membership to the
Union will be possible during the
entire school year, but it is urged
that freshmen register at the Union
during the first few weeks of the
semester. Membership is open to
every man student at the University.
