4,252 Students Present
At Summer Session

More Than 1,000
Proportionate In c r e a s e
Should Yield Over 4,800
Summer Students
Enrollment for the Summer Ses-
sion passed the 4,000 mark yesterday
as 1041 students registered to bring
the total to 4,252.
This enrollment surpasses that of
the first Monday of last year's Ses-
sion by 264 students. On the same
day last year, 3,988 had enrolled.
The men's totals reached 2,691 yes-
terday while 1,561 women have reg-
istered. Last year at this time, 2,558
men had enrolled and 1,430 women
were registered with the University.
The total enrollment last year was
4,528, the greatest ever recorded in
any Summer Session. In view of the
increase at the present time, it is'
expected the total enrollment for'
the 1937 Session will top the record
set last year.
With the figures for Monday af-
ternoon's enrollment showing an in-
crease of nearly seven per cent over
last year, total enrollment for 1937
should reach the record peak of 4,823,
if the same increase is maintained1
for subsequent registration during the

Katayev' s Play
S easonTonight
Mary Pray, Sarah Pierce
Support Charles Harrell
In 'Path Of Flowers'
"The Path of Flowers," a humorous
satire on the marriage code of Soviet
Russia by the young playwright Val-
entine Katayev, will be presented to-
day at 8:30 p.m. in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre as the first offering
for the summer season of the Mich-
igan Repertory Players.
Katayev's successful comedy hit,
"Squaring the Circle," was one of the
most popular of last summer's plays.
The current production tells the story
of a young Communist leader who
preaches free love and non-clerical
marriage, and the varying success
which greets his attempts to put his
theories into practice.
Charles Harrell plays the leading
role of the farce, supported by Sarah
Pierce and Mary Pray as his wife and
sweetheart respectively. Virgini a
Frink plays another of the hero's
sweethearts, while Hattie Bell Ross,
Edward Jurist, Claribel Baird, Nancy
Bowman, Morlye Baer and Ralph Bell
complete the cast. Valentine B.
Windt, Director of Play Production,
directs the performance.
"The Path of Flowers" will be pre-
sented again tomorrow, Thursday
and Saturday at the same time. Tick-
ets are available at the Lydia Men-
delssohn box office in the League.

75th NEAMeeting
DETROIT, June 28.-(Special to
The Daily) - Arthur E. Morgan,
chairman of the Tennessee Valley
Authority told the 75th Annual Na-
tional Education Association meeting
fere tonight that too much emphasis
cannot be placed "on the idea that
education must concern itself with
the whole of human personality in all
relations to individuals, to society,
and to the physical world."
Morgan said that in this philosophy
he found himself in sharp disagree-
ment with President Robert M. Hut-
chins of the University of Chicago.
Wallace On General Welfare
Secretary of Agriculture Henry A.
Wallace, in an address prepared for
delivery at last night's session, told
the general conference that to serve
the "general welfare" it is "essential
that the schools of the United States
give more definite instruction about
the soil, population and income."
There never can be satisfactory sal-
aries for teachers, he said, until there
is "scurity of tenure for farmers."
Members of the University of Mich-
igan faculty speaking at sessions of
today's convention included Dean

sirable Objectives Be the Basis fo

Professor Whittemore talked to a

"Fundamentals of Landscape Design

dening Work," and Professors Woody

ested in mathematics.
Prof. John Sundwall of the hygiene

150 Ask Permits
TO Drive Autos
During Summer
Cars May Be Used Only
As Recreational Means;
Social Use Forbidden
More than 150 students so far have
applied for permits to drive automo-
biles during the Summer Session, the
office of the Dean of Students an-
nounced yesterday.
The office called special attention
to the fact that many students who
indicated intention of driving a car
during the summer did not put the
license number of their car on the
registration blank. It is necessary
that this be done before the office can
consider any applications for permits.
All students desiring to drive cars
must secure permits at Dean of Stu-

dent's office, Room 2, University Hall,
and it was especially emphasized that
the filling out of the registration card
in the section devoted to automobile
operation does not constitute a per-
mit to drive.
Passengers may be carried in cars
in connection with athletic activities,
but mixed company in a car after
9 p.m. will not be permitted. With
the exception of the recreational fea-
ture the social and personal use of
