Enrollment Shows

Total University enrollment for the'
fiscal year just closed was only 12,301,
a drop of 956 or 7.2 per cent from the
figures of 1932-33, figures released by
the Registrar's office show. The
regular session, with 8,968 students
enrolled, was only 2.2 per cent under
last year's figures, but the 1933 Sum-
mer Session enrollment and the reg-
istration of the Extension Division cut
the average, with respective decreases
of 21.2 and 15.2 per cent from the to-
tals of the previous year.
As usual, Wayne county held its
lead among counties of the State in
representation on the campus, having
2,775 students enrolled. Although
this was 182 less than 1932-33, Wayne
nevertheless led Washtenaw county
by nearly 1,200.
Nine Michigan counties had more
than 100 students either enrolled here
or on a non-resident basis. Of these
counties only two had a heavier rep-,

resentation than in 1932-33; Kent,
which includes the city of Grand
Rapids, had an enrollment of 516, up
25, and Genesee, including the city
of Flint, had an enrollment of 311,
65 more than last year.
The 'figures on the epunties having
100 or more students registered are:
Wayne, 2,775; Washtenaw, 1,596;,
Kent, 516; Oakland, 377; Genesee,
311; Saginaw, 157; Jackson, 134; Cal-
houn, 132; and Bay, 119.
Only one Michigan county, Mont-
morency, was not represented during
the current year. In 1932-33, Mont-
morency, Alcona, and Roscommon
had no students here. Montmorency
has been without a student here since
The decline in student enrollment
is almost entirely within the State,
for the loss of enrollment outside
of Michigan was only 37 students.

Is Waived At
U. OfChicago
Students-At-Large To Be
Permitted To Enroll In
Regular Classes
CHICAGO, Ill., June 25. -(P) -
Doors at the University of Chicago
today were opened to "all who might
profit by study," regardless of whether
they have had previous academic
training, President Robert Maynaid
Hutchins announced.
The university's new policy permits
enrollment of students-at-large. They
may participate in university studies
without the necessity of working to-
ward a degree and without academic
requirements. Intellectual capacity is
their only qualification.
Two classes of students will profit
by the movement, Professor Hutchins
said; the high school student of un-
usual ability who can plan his studies
untrammeled by degree restrictions,
and an older group who wish to con-
tinue their education regardless of
formal requirements. The policy is in
accord with Hutchins' criticism of
nver-emnhasis f onll1e dreesann

It was pointed out, by Professor
Coe that many students who have
been on the campus for several years
are still unfamiliar with many points
of interest on it,. and that with. this
in view, even old students might find
it worthwhile to accompany the
The Legal Research Library in the

buildings of the Law Group will also

a tour of the Union, visiting all the
departments. that will be open for
student use this summer. The next
high point on the excursion will be a
thorough examination of the Main
Library, including a trip through the
stacks and the various units of the
service department there.
At 4:15 p.m. the group is due at the
William L. Clements Library of
American History for an examina-
tion of the large collection of docu-
ments and records found there. After
the halt there the tour will be broken
up into smaller units, and those who
wish to attend to the University Lec-
ture will leave the group. The rest
will have a choice to make between
three further trips.
At 4:45 p.m. the smaller units will
visit the Naval Tank in the West

Ganzlhorn Refutes
Colleague's Charge
The resignation of Mrs. Ruth H.
Graves, county welfare agent and
representative of the state welfare
dlepartment in Washtenaw County,
may be asked a~s the consequence of
charges made Monday by her against
Dr. E. C. Ganzhorn, coroner and
county physician. Mrs. Graves told
the Board of Supervisors that an av-
erage of every third case coming to
the attention of Dr. Ganzhorn was
either neglected or mismanaged.
Blame for the situation was not
placed on Dr. Ganzhorn as an indi-
vidual by Mrs. Graves, but rather on
the system which gives him more
work than he can satisfactorily per-
form. Despite this statement, how-
ever, Dr. Ganzhorn took exception to
the remarks, answered g e n e r a 1
charges, and with the records of the
TUniversity Hospital to back him.

CLEVELAND, O., June 25. -(P) -
The hot and steaming battle for the
national intercollegiate golf cham-
pionship began today with the field
paced by Ed White, University of
Texas junior and holder of the South-
west championship.
White negotiated Country Club's
6,701 yards in 72, par figures, and
held a two-stroke lead over the field
of 118 entries in the first 18-hole
round of the 36-hole two-day qualify-
ing struggle.

White came the quintet of formid-
able golfers, comprised of Johnny
Banks of Notre Dame; A. F. Kammer,
Jr., of Princeton; Roy W. Ryden of
the University of California at Los
Angeles, and Chuck Kocsis of the
University of Michigan, favored to
win the crown this year, and William
Ward of Syracuse.
All by himself with a 75 came Oliver
Transue, captain of the Yale Univer-
sity team and secretary of the Inter-
collegiate Association.
Bunched together, each with 76,
came another trio, composed of Char-
ley Yates, of Georgia Tech, Morris
Hankinson of Oklahoma, and Derrien
Moore, another Georgia Tech shot-
Walter Emery, the defending cham-
pion from the University of Okla-

other players at the 77 mark. Along

Malloy of Michigan, Walter Ramsey

Rollins. Dana P. Seeley, of Ann Arbor,
shot 39-39 for a 78 round.

round, the first qualifying round to-
day was devoid of any sensational
shooting, the majority of the scores

U[.. S. Treasury
Deficit Reaches
$i4, 000,000,000
WASHINGTON, June 25. - (P) --
The end of the fiscal year, a week
away, will find the government's ex-
penses exceeding its income by nearly
four billion dollars.
Treasury officials made this esti-
mate today on the basis of latest rev-
enue and disbursement figures, which
they expect will not be altered ma-
terially by the developments of the
Today's regular statement of the
government's accounts showed a defi-
cit of $3,838,071,319 and the public
debt standing at $26,987,966,177, or
$4,449,294,717 more than when the
fiscal year began.
The new figures were at wide vari-
ance with the estimates made by Pres-
ident Roosevelt in transmitting the
annual budget message to Congress in
At that time, wishing to cover all
possible contingencies, he forecast a
deficit of $7,309,068,211 and a total
public debt of $29,847,000,000 for the
close of the fiscal year. Emergency
outlays have proved much less than
he then estimated.

The second of the series of Uni-
versity lectures will be delivered at 5
p.m. today by Professor-emeritus Wil-
liam H. Hobbs of the geology depart-
ment, who will speak on the topic:
"The Evolution of Method in Polar
Exploration." The lecture will be ac-
companied by illustrations.
Professor Hobbs, who has been
connected with the University since
he came here from the University in
1906 to head the geology depart-
ment, will no longer occupy that post
after July 2, when he plans to retire
on the occasion of his seventieth
birthday, but he will continue never-
theless to take an active part in the
functions of the University. This sum-
mer he is teaching a course in the
geology department, plans several lec-
tures, and will lead two of the sum-
mer excursions, the Put-in-Bay trip,
and the Niagta1.a Falls -tour- provided
there is sufficient interest.
The text of a resolution honoring
Professor Hobbs, passed by the fac-'
ulty of the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts at its May
meeting, is printed on the editorial
page in the editorial, "Professor Hobbs
-a Tribute."
The Put-in-Bay trip, which is the
seventh of the excursions, will take
place July 21. It includes a 125-mile
boat ride on Lake Erie, and a tour
of scenic points in the island, in
addition to the field trip conducted
there by Professor Hobbs with special
attention to geological data. If enough
students apply at the Summer Ses-
sion office, the trip to Niagara Falls
will be made July 27 and 28 This trip
is usually preceded by a lecture by
Professor Hobbs here in Ann Arbor on
the geological aspects of the Falls,
and another lecture will be made
when the excursionists reach the
Falls, and can obtain the information
on the spot.
Professor Hobbs has an interna-
tional reputation as a geologist, and is
especially known for his world-wide
research in the interests of geolog-
ical data. One of his first great ven-
tures was the Greenland Expedition
of the University of Michigan, which
led to the establishment of the per-
manent observing station in Green-
land in 1921. Many of the latest im-
provements in the science of weather
prediction have been begun at the
University's Northern outpost.
His next travels took him to the
Pacific Ocean and the Orient, and
In 1926, 1927, and 1928, he returned
to Greenland to track down the
"North Pole of the Winds." In 1928
he returned to Ann Arbor, and con-
tinued his services to the University
on a less widespread but equally ac-
tive plane, to which his official re-
tirement will evidently not put an

Auto Drivers

Permission From Office Is
Necessary; Ruling Went
Into Effect Yesterday
Many unsuspecting summer school
students will shortly be in an embar-
rassing position in regard to the Uni-
versity automobile regulations unless
they report to the office of the dean
of students, according to Walter B.
Rea, assistant to the dean.
Sections of registration blanks re-
lating to automobiles which have
been received at Mr. Rea's office have
been improperly or incompletely filled
out and unless the correct informa-
tion is turned in at that office im-
mediately many students will be
driving cars in violation of the ban,
Mr. Rea has pointed out.
"In many instances," he says, "stu-
dents have stated their intention of
driving a car even though they are
not in one of the exempted lists, but
they have failed to come into the of-
fice to apply for permits. The filling
out of that part of the registration
card is not enough in the case of that
large majority of students not ex-
empted by the ruling; they must ac-
quire actual driving permits before
they can legitimately operate motor
driven vehicles."
In addition, Mr. Rea explains that
many of those who would normally be
exempted from the ruling and who
have signified their intention to drive
cars, have failed to give complete in-
formation on the registration blank.
In some cases they have failed to list
the license number of their car, in
others they have given no informa-
tion whatsoever beyond a "yes" state-
ment indicating that they intend to

driven automobiles went into effect

-The four invaders from the United
States today yielded the shotmaking
honors in the first 18 holes to the
thirty-six-hole qualifying round for
the British Open Golf Championship
to tall Henry Cotton, a native pro,
who burned up the Royal St. George's
