2,246 Enroll In Graduate
School; Literary College
Is Second With 628
Gain Of 256 Over
Last Year IS Made
With the enrollment figures mount-
ing daily and already much larger
than those set down last year on the
corresponding dates, officials pre-
dicted a new record for total regis-
tration for a Summer Session at the
University. The nunoer should draw
very close to 5,000, dwarfing the rec-
ord made last year of 4,528.
Of all the schools and colleges, the!
Graduate School had the greatest
attendance with 2,446, as compared
with 2,154 at this time last year. There
was a gain of 13.6 per cent in en-
rollment in this school alone.
Following the Graduate School, the
literary college had a total of 628, as
compared with 684 at this time last
year. This college was one of five
units of the University to drop in at
tendance so far this year. The oth-
ers were the Medical School, with 45
less students this year than in 1936,
the Law School with four less, the
School of Business Administrationt
with three, less, the education school
and college of architecture, each with I
eight less students in the 1937 ses-
The total gain of students, count-
ing every unit of the University of
course, is 256 to date, for a present
total enrollment of 4,451 as com-
pared with 4,195 last year. How-
ever, the total enrollment of the[
session will be far greater than the
present figure due to further late
registrations and tht second terms
held in certain divisions.l

First President Changed
College Into University
SHenry Phillip Tappan, who was
asked to resign by the trustees of the
University in 1863, was called Michi-
gan's greatest president yesterday by
Dr. 0. W. Stephenson, head of the
department of social studies and au-
thor of a history of Ann Arbor as he
traced the history of the college in
the first of a series of lectures on the
general topic "Significant Trends in
American Education," in the Univer-
sity High School auditorium.
Dr. Stepenson praised his courage
and vision, crediting him with for-
mulating a policy which has brought
Michigan to its present state. Unfor-
tunately President Tappan who loved
his scotch mush more than the more
religious students and faculty of
those days approved of was a too bel-
ligerent and forbidding nature to
get support for these proposals. "In
a period when college education was
synonomous with a study of the
classics, President Tappan strove for
courses in such number as to allow
any student to study anything he
wanted," he said. In his administra-
tion the medical school, law school
and a school of civil engineering were
founded. He devoted himself to the
development of a school for graduate
studies which had he been success-

LONDON, June 29.-(/P)-Informed
sources said tonight that Great Brit-
ain may agree to recognize Spanish
insurgent General Francisco Franco
as a belligerent if Germany and Italy
continue collaboration in the "hands
off Spain" program.
Usually reliable observers forecast
this as Britain's next move in an ef-
fort to keep the Civil War confined
to Spain after both Germany and
Italy flatly rejected a proposal by
Britain and France to patrol all of
Spain's coasts in the interests of neu-
Government spokesmen said that
should Britain agree to accord Franco
the rights of a belligerent, it would
not mean that his regime would be
recognized as equal to the Spanish
Britain To Recognize War
Instead, they said, it would simply
be official recognition by Britain that
a state of war exists in Spain.
British observers said such action
by their government would amount
to "a pat on the back" for Germany
and Italy in exchange for their co-
operation for world peace.
Informed sources declared such a
move hinged upon the fact that
British Foreign Secretary Anthony
Eden was ready to do almost any-
thing to confine the war to Spain and
bring it to a speedy close.
Lord Plymouth, in outlining the
Anglo-French proposal to take over
the Spanish patrol, received a prompt
rejection from Germany and Italy.
Both Joachim Von Ribbetrop,
German ambassador, and Count Dino
Grandi, the Italiar envoy, asked hy-
pothetically what attitude Britain and
France would take if the roles were
reversed. That is, if Germany and
Italy suggested taking over the whole

-America's professional golfers,
blown out of many a British cham-
pionship in the past, stood up bravely*
today in the face of as wild a wind
as ever blew in off the Irish Sea to
take a 22 to 1% lead over Great
Britain in defense of the Ryder Cup.
Playing a foreign type of game,
Scotch foursomes, and with the for-
eign, smaller ball in a land where
they never before have won the cup,
the U.S. players beat the British at
their own windy game. They gained
their single-point advantage by virtue
of the most astonishing victor.y in
the recent history of British golf.
The hero of this victory was 25-
year-old Byron Nelson, the slim f or-)
mer Texas railroad clerk whose name1
stands for all that's poetic and valor-1
ous in British hearts and whose deeds
oday added glory to the name.
The, youngster, paired with veteran
Ed Dudley, beat the British "in-
vincibles," Henry Cotton and Alf Pad-
gham, by 4 and 2.

to maintain order.
"The failure of governing author-

created a bad impression, has en-
