P ERHAPS MORE than any one
thing the mixers, suppers, bridge
and dancing lessons sponsored by the Michigan
League were responsible for making the 1934 Sum-
mer Session the social success that it was. Many
students participated in and enjoyed these activ-
ities. Few realize who was behind them, responsible
for their success.
Each summer the University is faced with the'
problem of acquainting students with each other,
of entertaining them, of making their stay here
enjoyable. This problem is more difficult in the
summer because most of the students are either
new or have been away for some time, and be-
cause of the short period in which to work.
Although it is really not their responsibility,
University officials have taken it over and handled
the problem well. The most credit for this, no
doubt, is due to Miss Ethel McCormick, Social
Director of the Summer Session.
Iatimately acquainted with the situation here,
as a result of her many years experience, she is to
be congratulated for the manner in which she has
conducted League activities this summer.

E"~ stt

of her valuable qualities is an aptitude for
things done with the least amount of
effort. And another is her ability to get

Student aid is vitally iecessary. The Uni-
is fortunate in having a person at the helmI
hom students enjoy working.

The efficient manner in which social activities
have been conducted this summer is a tribute to
Miss McCormick and her unceasing effort to make
your visit here one to be long remembered. 4

WE CAN'T GET very sentimental over the close
of Summer Session - not with a month's vacation
to look forward to. But, oh, how that month will
fly. Most of the Repertory Players will then return
to teaching school, or being taught - one or
the other. Here's what the future holds for some
of them.

Buffalo, N. Y., where he teaches school, and Louis
