hilarious type of situations con-

stage from Edith Wharton's novel by
Owen and Donald Davis, will be' the

of the chief hits of the New York

by critics as one of the most skillful
adaptations of the American theatre.
Six separate sets have been con-
structed for the Ann Arbor produc-
tion, which will run for four evenings
from July 7 to 10.
The third play of the season, "First
Lady," by Katherine Dayton and
George S. Kaufman, a satire on
Washingtorw political-social life, will
open July 14 and run through July

Cowl played for two years in New
York and on the road. The Ann

non-professional release of the witty
and sarcastic comedy.

May I express a sincere welcome.
You have come from all the states
and many provinces. Some have.
traveled from countries beyond the
seas. I hope you may receive in-
spiration and profit during your so-
journ in Ann Arbor. It is your Uni-
versity now and you share its glorious
traditions. I trust that each of you

Germany Prefers
Independent Action
WURZBURG, Germany, June 27.-
(/P)-Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler pro-
claimed today that Germany hence-
forth prefers independent action to
protect herself from incidents off the
Spanish coast.
T h e European nonintervention
committee, he told a party rally of
200,000 Nazis, demonstrated its in-
effectiveness by failing to act after
the cruiser Leipzig allegedly was at-
tacked by a Spanisn government sub-
Germany last week withdrew her
warships from the nonintervention
patrol after the Leipzig incident, be--
cause Britain and France declined to
support a naval demonstration off
the Spanish coast as a warning to the'
Valencia government.
Hitler criticized both the commit-
tee andthe foreign press. He said
that after the pocket battleship
Deutschland was attacked by two
Spanish government planes in May,
with loss of 31 lives, and Germany
replied with bombardment of Almeria
there was condemnation for Germany.

Session Termed The 'Most
Colorful' Ever Offered
By University
Total Enrollment
Should Near 4,600
Three Types Of Courses
Given; All Colleges And
Schools Now Open
The early enrollment in the 44th
Summer Session of the University
held promise of a new record when
figures released by Miss Marian Wil-
liams, University statistician, showed
that 3,211 had registered. Very prob-
ably the total enrollment, after all
late comers have registered, will ex-
ceed 4,600, officials predicted.
Although the increase in enroll-
ment in the 1937 Session over that
of 1936 is considerably less than the
increase of the 1936 Session over
that of 1935, the statistics reveal that
114 more students are registered now
that have ever been enrolled at the
close of early registration in any pre-
vious Summer Session. Enrollment
last year at this time was 3,097.
Many Special Features
The total enrollment Iast year was
4,528, the greatest ever recorded for
any Summer Session. However in
view of the increase at the present
time the total enrollment for the 1937
Session will top the record set last
Unlike last year, the increase in
the number of men and women was
approximately equal, there being an
increase of 59 men and 55 women to
make the total 114.
Termed by Prof. Louis A. Hopkins,
director, as the "most colorful" ses-
sion ever to be presented by the
University, a wider curricula and
more special features, including the
Electronics Institute, Institute of Far
Eastern Studies, and many others,
will be offered than ever before.
Three principal types of courses
will begin today. There are those for
undergraduate students regularly
enrolled in the University to supple-
ment regular work and to fulfill re-
quirements for special curricula, cer-
tain techz;cal courses for teachers,
librarians, engineers, and profession-
al men in active practice, and courses
leading to higher degrees.
Session Now In Full Swing
The Session opens today in all
schools and colleges in the University
with the exception of the Law School
and will close on Aug. 20. The Law
School began June 21 for a five week
term lasting until July 26, when a

LONDON, June 27.-(YP)-British
and French diplomats tonight faced
with indisguised anxiety the task of

manifold frictions involved from ex-
