augmented program which includes
a wide curriculum of courses, special
lectures, seminars and exhibits.
Started At University
Established at the University last
year in recognition of a growing pub-
lic and academic interest in Eastern
Asia, the Institute has invited several
prominent scholars from other in-
stitut ons to join its staff, and the
enr schedule of study has been re-
vised and expanded to insure a well-
rounded program both to former and
to newly enrolled students. Special
emphasis will be devoted to the study
of Oriental languages, and courses of
concentrated study will be held in

outstanding problems of the con-
temporary Far East will also be given
particular attention.

historical and structural point of
view, according to its director, Prof.
C. C. Fries of the English depart-
"Linguistic scholars, Pro f essor
Fries said, "have increasingly felt
the need of acquaintance with a wide
diversity of languages. Few institu-
tions have a sufficient number of
students to justify the giving of regu-
lar courses which cover remote bits
of linguistic territory.
"The Linguistic Institute, held dur-
ing the Summer Session, when those
who hold academic positions in wide-
ly scattered institutions may attend,
makes possible an economical presen-

Regents Remove PrintingI
From Ann Arbor Pressr
FollowingNLRB Report
Order Was Issued .
By Board June 17
The strike-ridden Ann Arbor Press
was dealt a severe blow June.17 by
an order of the Board of RegentsC
withdrawing all University printingt
from the plant.'
The Regents' action came twoI
weeks after the release of an inter-f
mediate report of the National Labor
Relations Board Trial Examiner,C
hearing the Press case in Washing-
ton, in which the company was re-
buked for its interference with em-
ployes' right to join the International
Typographical Union.
The University has been a chief
source of business for the Press= for
several years.. Hearings on the strike,1
which was started by composing rooma
employes Feb. 19 following a lockout
of four men who had joined the
.union, were begun by the NLRB
May 2. The intermediate report,y
made by Trial Examiner Frank
Bloom, was issued June 1.,
The International Typographical
Union requested the University to
withdraw its business from the Press
when the strike was one month old,
urging that the Regents refuse to
give orders to firms violating the
National Labor Relations Act and
Michigan Public Act 153, which re-
quires printing paid for by the state
to be done in- a shop maintaining
wage levels prevalent in the com-
munity where the work is done.

sion enrollment over a 10-year period
will be continued in the 45th annual

Miss Marian Williams, University sta-
tistician, indicated. A total enroll-
ment to date of 3,619, a 12 per cent
increase over enrollment last year at

It is certain, Miss "Williams pre-:
dicted, that the, total enrollment this
year will exceed the final mark of 5,-
110, an all-time high in Summer
Session enrollment, set last year.
Records show that each session
since 1928 has chalked up an enroll-
ment increase over the previous year,
this year's figures showing that 408
more students are registered than
have ever been enrolled at the close df
early registration in any previous
Summer Session. The total enroll-
ment last year at this time was 3,211.
Greatest increase in enrollment
among the schools to date is in the
Graduate School wthich registered
264 more students than last year, the
engineering college with 89 and the.
literary college with 66.
Termed by Director Louis A. Hop-
kins, "one of the outstanding and
most recognized sessions of its' type
in the country," the Summer Ses-
sion offers ordinary courses and
courses supplementary to those of
the regular year, a series of institutes
and special study curricula and many
