The League -Social Headquarters For Women (I#,J IJ | Union Offers Facilities To Summer Students 9 ( I +n

Dancing, the Michigan Repertory Players, reading rooms, and many
other entertainment facilities - they are all offered in the Michigan
League. Although only women students enrolled in the Summer Ses-
sion are members of the League, use of the building is also open to men.
Three University Of Michigan
Camps Begin Summer Studies

the camp was moved to Wyoming.
. A trip to Yellowstone Park will be
made during the camp session, and
many of the students plan to. tour
the West and Southwest after the
camp session is over, in order to ex-
amine such projects as Boulder Dam
and western irrigation systems.
The University's Biological Station,
known to the adjoining "natives" of
Northern Michigan as the "bug camp"
is one of the oldest fresh-water bio-
logical stations in the country, and
one of the largest in the world, now
that it has taken over the former
holdings of Camp Davis. Director
George R. LaRue has a faculty of
14 members, and the student body of
the camp numbers from 90 to 100,
of whom all but about 20 are not stu-
dents at the University during the
regular year. Over 300 scientific
papers have resulted from research
carried on at the camp in the 26
years it has been in operation.
Prof. Robert J. Craig, director of
Camp Filibert Roth, the forestry field
station in Alger County near Munis-
ing, expects that, this summer will
see a new high record set for at-
tendance at the camp, due to the rise
in interest in forestry. The student
body of the camp consists mostly of
forestry students between their soph-
omore and junior years.
The camp is housed in buildings
formerly used by a logging concern,
and the work, carried on in a region
where extensive logging operations
still exist, will consist mainly of such
tasks as the mapping of forest areas,
the estimation of timber stands, scal-
ing logs, the fighting and control of
fires, and the construction of roads,
trails, fire breaks and telephone lines

p

The facilities of the University's
General Library, with books number-
ing over 800,000 volumes, will be

the Summer Session.
The General Library will be open
daily, except Sunday, from 7:30 a.m.
to 10 p.m. Books may be drawn by all
officers and students of the Univer-
sity.
In addition to the many volumes,
the library contains 5,000 maps, and
a collection of 4,000 prints and pho-
tographs, mainly of art subjects.
Several special collections, includ-
ing the Parsons Library of Political
Science, containing 6,076 volumes; the
McMillan Shakespeare Library of 6,-
525 volumes and 174 pamphlets; and
the Goethe Library of 1,131 volumes
are to be found in the General Li-
brary.
