Fisher Outlines
iummer Auto
Ban Regulations
Regulations for the Summer Ses-
sion automobile ban, which differs
in several particulars from that of
the regular session, were explained
yesterday in a statement issued by
K. E. Fisher, assistant to Dean Wal-
ter B. Rea.
One special exemption is made
during the summer, covering those
people who are engaged during the
academic year in professional pur-
suits such as teaching, law, medicine,
and nursing, and students may se-
cure permits, in addition to reasons
acceptable in the regular year, for
recreational purposes, limited, how-
ever, to transportation for out-door
athletic recreation during the Sum-
mer Session. After 9 p.m., use of a
car for the transportation of mixed
company will be considered a social
rather than recreational use, and
will be interpreted as a violation of
the auto ban.

The total enrollment last year was
4,066, the second largest Summer

been an increase of 382 students, and
in the Music School an increase of
66 per cent or 45 students.
Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, director of
the Summer Session, joined with
other members of the University fac-
ulty in welcoming all new students.
He said:
Students From. All Over World
"The Summer Session began with
a limited use of certain laboratories
on the campus where students were
given opportunity to make up work
which had been delayed from the
preceding academic year. Today be-
gins the forty-third session with stu-
dents from all over the world. In
addition to the comprehensive edu-
cational program which has grown in
Ann Arbor, there are out-stations in
Colorado, Wyoming and Northern
Michigan and expeditions in Itew
England and Europe. May I extend
the welcome and good wishes of the
University to all Michigan students
wherever you may be.
"A diversified program of entertain-
ment has been arranged for the stu-
dents in Ann Arbor including pop-
ular lectures, concerts, plays, excur-
sions, teas, dances, receptions and
parties, which will contribute to your
happiness. The Itramural Sports
building, Women's Athletic Building,
golf courses and other recreational
facilities, are ready for your use. May
I remind you that this summer you
are members of the Michigan Union
or the Michigan League. The latter
building will serve as official sodial
headquarters under the direction of
Miss Ethel McCormick.
