THE MICHIGAN DAILY

'33-'34 Session
Shows Decline
In Enrollment
Largest Decrease Is Noted
'in Extension Division
And Summer School 1

Artist's Sketch Of Hutchins Hall and.

(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan was represented by 7,737
students, a total 919 smaller than it
was a Year ago.
New York again ranked first among
the outside states having students
here, with a total enrollment of 906,
an increase of 60 over the previous
year. Other states having compara-
tively large representation here
ranked as follows: Ohio, 713; Illinois,
494; Pennsylvania, 373; and Indiana,
270.
Foreign enrollment dropped only
four from last year's figures, with
256 students enrolled. Forty-three
countries and provinces were repre-
sented as against 50 the previous year.
China, with 78 enrolled, was the
leader. Ontario was second with 45,
Porto Rico third with 16, and the
Philippine Islands fourth with 12.
The ratio of men to women in at-
tendance at the regular session was
approximately five to two, with the
respective totals being 6,287 and 2,486.
Altogether, 8,773 students attended
the regular session. These figures also
decreased proportinately from 1932-
33, when there were 6,461 men and
2,507 women in attendance, with a
total enrollment of 8,968. The per
cent of decrease in the total enroll-
ment was 2.2.
In the 1933 Summer Session there
were only twice as many men as wom-
en enrolled, a total of 2,962 being
divided into 2,005 men students and
957 women students.nThe 1932 Sum-
mer Session had 2,453 men and 1,304
women enrolled, totaling 3,757. The"
percentage of decrease in the en-
rollment of women was surprisingly,
larger than that of the men, being
26.6 per cent to 18.3 per cent.
The Extension Division, during-the
year of 1933-34, declined in total
registration to 1,828 from the total
of the previous year. 2,155. This de-
crease was almost wholly attributable
to the falling off of the number of
women registered, since the number
of men students registered was only
four off the 1932-33 number of 711.
On the other hand, women's registra-
tion receded from 1,444 to 1,121, a
loss of 22.4 per cent.
The total University enrollment,
12,301, was the least since the fiscal
year, 1923-24, when 12,291 were en-
rolled.

An appeal circulated as the Ameri-

real work was done, however, late at
night. The Iydia Mendelssohn The-
atre was often occupied until the wee
hours of the morning. Dress rehear-
sal was held Sunday night and the
players rested all day yesterday.
Concerning the play itself, Mr.
Crandall said: "It is a show of ex-
treme delicacy and must be played
with a great deal of restraint. It is
very quiet and demands a fine intui-
tive feeling. Better acting is re-
quired than in a play of a more sen-
sational, faster-moving nature.
"It is a modern Spanish play which
belongs to the new school of play-
writing that Spain has produced in
the last 30 years. It is typical of the
school as a whole. The plays in the
new school have a depth of emotion,
with not much on- the surface. The
plots are usually quite scant, and the
plays stress characterizations which
are usually very finely drawn and
beautifully done.
"They are not influenced by the
Ibsen 'problem' idea, but lean to-
wards romanticism and sentiment.
'One Hundred Years Old' is one of
the Spanish classics. It has played
in London and New York with great
success, and has been translated into
many foreign languages."
Serafin and Joaquin Alarez Quin-
teros, the authors of the play, have
-been successful in drama, their plays
"Women Have Their Way," and "The
Lady Frfm Alfa Que Que" having also
been hits.
Mr. Crandall, who teaches Ad-
vanced Acting and Advanced Dra-

than ever before attempted by using
a the facilities which have been made
available to the University, Dean
Bates said.
f The dedication of the group at-
s tracted some of the most noted fig-
ures in the judiciary and educational;
fields. The chief speakers for the
event were Justice Harlan F. Stone
of the United States Supreme Court
and former dean of the Columbia
University law school, Newton D.
Baker, Chief Justice Marvin Rosen-
berry of the Wisconsin Supreme
Court, and Dean Bates. Such crowds
attended the ceremonies that the
overflow from the dinner which was
served in the Lawyers Club had to be
accommodated in the Union ball-
room.
A number of prominent educators ,
from other institutions have come to I
'Ann Arbor to take part in the sum-
mer session of the school. Among
these are Hessel E. Yntema, Ph.D.,
S.J.D., professor of law at Johns Hop-
kins University, Albert Charles Ja-
cobs, B.C.L., A.M., associate professor
of law at Columbia University, and
Gustave A. Ohlinger, A.M., L.L.B., of
the Toledo, O., bar. These men will'
supplement the regular faculty of the
school.
Dean Bates graduated from the lit-
erary college in 1890 with the degree
of Ph.D. He received honorary de-
grees from Northwestern University
and Kalamazoo College. Dean Bates
is a member of a number of law so-
cieties and has served on the commis-
sion for uniform state laws since 1921.
He became dean of the Law School in
1910 and has held that position ever
since.
matic Production along with his. di-
recting and acting, has wanted to
produce this play for a, long time. Al-
though this is the first time he has
directed a Repertory Players' pro-
duction, he has done "A Mid-Sum-
mer Night's Dream," "Cradle Song,"
"Outward Bound," "The Enemy," and
"Ice Bound" for the Ann Arbor high
school group.
Mr. Crandall graduated from the
University in 1929, and since that
time has been instructing in Ann
Arbor high school and working on his
Master's degree. During the winter
season he plays in the Bonstelle -Civic
Theatre Group at the Art Institute
Theatre in Detroit, where T. W. Ste-
vens has been directing. This is his
fourth summer with the Repertory
Players.
