Automobile Ban
Goes Into Effect'
Sep tember 27th
Permi[s To Operate Car
May Be Obtained From
Dean's Office
Entering students were reminded
yesterday by the office of the Dean of
Students of the auto ban, which al-
lows no student in the University to
operate a motor vehicle while he is
enrolled unless for certain special
purposes and in certain exceptional
cases. The ban goes into effect at 8
a.m. Sept. 27.
However, students may receive a
permit to operate a motor vehicle if
they live in or near Ann Arbor and
have need of one for family use for
commuting purposes if the student
lives with relatives or parents and is
more than a reasonable walking dis-
tance from the campus, for business
purposes and for health purposes.
Except under unusual circum-
stances, permits for the use of an au-
tomobile are not issued for weekend
trips home.
Can Store Cars
Students may drive cars to Ann Ar-
bor and store them in the city if they
live more than 150 miles from the
University officials feel that the use
of an automobile by a student at the'
University is rarely essential as a
means in assisting to secure an edu-
cation, and that it often detracts
from scholastic work and, other ac-
tivities valuable to the student.
They also feel that a car does not
contribute to the best interests of the
student. that it is conducive to time
wasting and that it contributes to in-
juries and fatalities. Fatalities be-
cause of automobiles have dropped
greatly since the ban was put into
effect the first semester of 1927-28.
l*Iust Apply For Permits
However, those that are obliged to
use cars must make, applications for
permits at the office of the Dean of
Students as soon as they arrive in
Ann Arbor. Permit tags are issued
to students that are allowed to drive.
Special attention was called to the
fact that these tags must be placed
upon the car before a student drives.
Students in the following groups
may apply for exemption from the
auto ban: those who are 26 years old
or more; those who are receiving
credit for not more than six hours of
academic work and those whouhold
University positions that entitle them
to a faculty rating of teaching assist-
ant of equivalent.
U' Fresh Air
Camp Serving
The 17th season of the University
Fresh Air Camp will come to a close
this week, and 320 boys financially
underprivileged and socially under-
nourished, will have spent four weeks
in the 200-acre camp on Patterson
Lake in such activities as swimming,
hiking, nature study, and handicraft.
More than 6,000 boys from the
streets of Detroit, Ann Arbor, Wyan-
dotte and Hamtramck have enjoyed
the camp during its existence. This
year the total number was divided in-
to two distinct periods of one month
Counselors of the camp are Univer-

sity students or graduates, who teach
the boys swimming, book-binding,
weaving, among other things. The
most important function of the camp
is teaching "fair play," according to
its director, George G. Alder.
More than 1,500 boys have learned
to swim here.
Funds for support of the Fresh Air
project are obtained from subscrip-
tions by townspeople, faculty mem-
bers, and other friends of the camp.
Augmenting funds collected by solici-
tions, the Student Christian Associa-
tion holds two Tag Days each year,
when students are stationed at stra-
tegic points on the campus to collect
Last "winter a boxing show was
staged in the Intramural Building to
raise money for the project.
Sixteen roomy cabins, a large mess
hall, a main lodge, a boat dock, sev-
eral boats, and a recreational hall
form the nucleus of the camp. When
the baseball games over for the day,
the fellows hold programs in the large
main lodge. And when the fire has
burned to red embers they are lulled
to sleep, those boys some of which
have never before been off the street-
car line, by a new phenomenon-
Applicants for the camp are se-
lected by various cooperating social
agencies and schools in the Ann Ar-
bor and Detroit vicinities.
President Ruthven, a trustee of the
Fresh Air Camp, has called it "a great
project in human engineering." The
purpose is to provide a means for
unr1prnrivileged boys to enjoy the ad-

Summer Session s
Enrollment Grows
The University Summer Session
has the largest enrollment this year
that it has had since it was begun
more than 20 years ago.
More than 5,000 students have reg-
istered this year. The majority of
them are graduates, and the greatest
increase of any school or college was
shown by the Horace H. Rackham
School of Graduate Studies.
According to Dead Yoakum the in-
crease is probably best accounted for
by the number of special features and

Helth Service, Ofering ExtenstveA
jInexpensive Care, Has Important


Offering the most extensive and
inexpensive medical care available at
any American university, the Health
Service is a most important part of
campus life. Last year alone 120,582
dispensary calls were made by 11,179
patients at the grey stone building
located across from the Museum on
North University Avenue.
Illness contracted by the student
during the semester in which he is
enrolled is taken care of in the
HealthService buildingand the Uni-
versity Hospital. Each student re-
ceives without charge office medical
service of any nature from his phys-
ician adviser and the Health Service
staff of specialists. The student is
also entitled to free bed care for 30
days and emergency operations with-
out charge. Last year 1,636 students
were confined to the infirmary while
400 who suffered from more serious

complaints were sent to the Univer-
sity Hospital.
In each of the women's dormitories
thei'e is a nurse stationed, and men
students living in rooming houses
have room-call service available.
Of the medical services rendered
by the University, the student is
charged for extra nursing, some Uni-
versity hospital services, dental X-
rays, physician room calls, non-
emergency operations, health appli-
ances, and the repair and purchase
of eye glasses. The charges for these
services are devised to defray the ex-
pense to the University.
The Health Service administers the
health examination which each en-
tering student of the University mustf
undergo. The University cares for
any illness of a serious nature,
brought to light in the examination,.
and advises students in the care of

minor ailments. These examinations
are provided but not required annu-

Library Service Of University
Includes Many Special Branches


The extensive library service of the
University includes not only the gen-
eral library, situated in the center of
the campus quadrangle, but a num-
ber of special branch units for the
various departments and schools.
A complete stock of text and col-
lateral reading mataerial-is available
in these various libraries for stu-
dents of all curricula. The entire
library service is coordinated under
the direction of Dr. William W. Bish-
op, director of the department of li-
brary science, in which training in
library work is given.
The departmental branches in-
clude libraries in medicine, law, en-

gineering, natural science, mathe-
matics, economics, and other courses.
The main branch library for the
literary college, located in Angell
Hall, contains books for courses in
English, modern and ancient lan-
guages, political science, history and
related sub.ects.
One of the most distinguished
buildings on the campus is the Wil-
liam L. Clements Library, given to
the University several years ago by
the late Mr. Clements, containing a
number of valuable documents on
American national history. At pres-
ent the Committee on University Ar-
chives has also its files in the Cle-
ments Library.
