Concentration
program Here
Is Explained
Every Student Must Have
60 Hours And 60 Honor
Points To Concentrate
Students in the University's co1-
- lege of Literature, Science and the
Arts who are studying for the degree
of Bachelor of Arts or a similar degree
do not "major" in the subject of their
choice, as is the case at many schools
and colleges, but take a first or Gen-
eral Program, usually for two years,
followed by a second or Degree Pro-
gram, usually rejuiring another two
years.
To enter the Degree Program, us-
ually at the beginning of the student's
junior year, the sudent must have
completed at least, 60 hours of work
with ai average grade of C or better.
A student who fails to attain the C
average required for admission to
candidacy for a degree may be given
NEW POINT PLAN
A revised graduation of honor
points will take effect for the
first time with this year's fresh-
man class. Replacing the old sys-
tem of 3 points for an A -grade, 2
for B, 1 for C, none for D, and
no hours' credit for E, the new
scale provides 4 points for an A
grade, 3 points for B, 2 points for
C, 1 point for D and none for E.
one semester and one Summer Ses-
sion after the semester in which he
passes the 60-hours line, in order to
bring his honor point index up to
the required mininum. The record
of the student, however, must be sat-
isfactory enough to justify the exten-
sion of time.
At the. conclusion, then, of his
sophomore year, when n the ordinary
course of events the student has re-
ceived 60 or more hours and an
equivalent number of points, he be-
comes, upon placing application, a
candidate for a degree ,Then he must
relect either a "division" or a "de-
partment of concentration."
A "department," in the technical
sense of the word, is a course of study
such as French, history, chemistry, or
anthopology. A student is at liberty
f to concentrate in any department if
he wishes to do so.. A "division," as
the term is technically employed, re-
fers to a larger grouping of courses,
of which there are three. Group I,
or Division I, is composed of Ancient
Languages and Literatures. Modern
Languges and Literature, Classical
Archaeology, Journalism and certain
courses in Speech and General Lin-
guistics.
Group II, or Division II, is devoted
to scientific courses such as mathe-
mtatics, astronomy, physics, chemis-
try, minerology, etc.
Group II, or Division III, is de-
voted to the "social sciences" such as
history, economics, sociology, political
science, etc.
A student may concentrate in any
study. For example: a student who
.s primarily interested in scientific
pursuits may, after completing in his
first two years at Michigan the total
number of points, proceed to concen-
trate in Group II (science) or he
might select a department in the
group (such as physics, for instance),
if he is more interested in physics,
than in a more sweeping survey of
all the sciences.
Eachr student's credit for gradua-
tion, comprising his entire course of
study in all four years at the Univer-
sity, must iclude not less than 30
hours study in his department of con-
centration, or not less than 60 hours
of study in his division of concentra-
tion, if he chooses the latter.

Ban On Autos
StrictlyUpheld
No Driving Allowed While
School Is In Session
"No student In attendance at the
University shall operate any motor
vehicle," is a line in the University
catalogue which is strictly adhered
to by the students and enforced by
the administration.
Students falling wi thin three
groups, however, are granted, upon
personal request, exemption from the
"auto ban." The regulation does not
apply to students 26 years of age or
older. It also does not apply to part-
time students receiving credit for not
more than six hours per semester.
Those with a faculty rating of in-
structor or higher will be exempted.
When any appreciable saving in
transportation costs is realized, stu-
dents may drive their cars to Ann
Arbor., and place them in dead stor-
age. Full information on stored cars,
including the name and address of
the owner, make, type and license
number of car, and location of stor-
age must be reported to the Dean of
Students Office immediately after the
car is brought to Ann Arbor. This

Jackson Hole
Made Outdoor
Research Base
Prof. Hopkins Announces
Camp Davis May Serve
All University Groups
Following a visit and inspection of
Camp Davis at Jackson Hole, Wyo.,
Prof. Louis A. Hopkins, director of
the Summer Session, announced that
the Camp in the future will be made
the base of operations for all Uni-
versity outdoor research courses in
the Rocky Mountain region.
Found to be ideally situated and
possessing adequate features and
facilities, Camp Davis, now being used
only by surveyors and gelogists of
the University, will be used next sum-
mer and following years more exten-
sively than it has been, Professor
Hopkins pointed out. This means that
the camp may also serve the biolo-
gists, botanists, zoologists, forestets,
and other groups of the University,
as their base of advanced research in
the Rocky Mountain area.
Outside of the Camp Davis region,
the summer session camps operated
in connection with the University in-
clude the biological station at Doug-
las Lake; the forestry camp, known
as Camp Filibert Roth, which is in
Iron Country, within the boundaries
of the Ottawa National Forest; the
Geography camps in Ann Arbor and
at Wilderness Park, which is situ-
ated on the Straits of Mackinac; the
Geology camp at Statebridge, Colo.;
the R.O.T.C. Ordnance camp at Aber-
deen Proving Grounds, Md., and the
Cheboygan project, sponsored by the
land utilization department of the
Graduate School and only 10 miles
from the Mackinac geography course.
International Club
Is In Union Wing
Taking up its quarters in the new
wing of the Michigan Union next to
Allen Rumsey dormitory, the foreign
students' social and recreational1cen-
ter will function this year under the
new name officially passed by the
Board of Regents at its last meeting,
"International Center."
The office of J. Raleigh Nelson, di-
rector of the International Center,
will be located in the Union addition
as well as the secretary's office, club
rooms, lounge, assembly room and
kitchenette. The new headquarters
will be the point of concentration for
all foreign student activity. The reg-
ular Sunday night suppers will be
held there as well as a new get-
together hour on Wednesday after-
noons where tea and other refresh-
ments will be served.
The foreign student enrollment of
the University last year was 300 and
that number is expected to increase
this year. Of this 300, 160 were Chi-
nese, 11 Turks, 12 Japanese and 7
Indians.
In addition to providing a social
program for the foreign students the
main duty of the director's office will
be to keep account of the foreign en-
rollment and to deal with Washing-
ton, D.C., on all matters of immigra-
tion such as passports, visas, exten-
sion of stay, and status for University
foreign students.
