Michigan women! Your scholastic programs are made out by now, but
what about your exercise programs? Of course walking is one of the best
exercises, and everyone gets enough of that, trotting around the campus. But
walking is only "E Pluribus Unum," and with so many delightful opportuni-
ties offered by the Physical Educaton Department, why not take advantage
of them and trim your figure down for fall or preserve what you have against
sumnmer let-downs.
Archery is not nearly so difficult as the Indians made it seem. It develops
the thin, reduces the fat, and best of all, it is not too strenuous for women of
average health.
Badminton is easily learned and uses all of those dormant mtscles. It is
not nearly so strenuous as tennis and requires much less skill.
Tennis, like badminton, wakes up all your muscles, but it is strenuous and
requires skill in order to be successful on the courts. However, if you have
lots of stamina and no heart trouble, tennis is a perfect workout. There are
sixteen courts available, so it shouldn't be hard to find a vacant one for out
of class playing.
Golf includes the merits of walking as well as the benefits of the swing of
arms and upper trunk. A-putting green and golf course in addition to excel-
lent instruction are offered for student disposal.
Riding is an easy sport because the poor horse does most of the work. But
be sure you have a calm-head for managing. the horse. There are beginning,
intermediate, and advanced classes. Six rides are offered for the special price
of $5.
Swimming is the best exercise of all, for it guarantees to take fat off in
the wrong places and put it on the right. For poise and grace, nothing is bet-
ter than dancing. Classes in tap as well as modern dancing are being offered
this summer for men and women.
For bridge fiends or wold-be fiends, the League is offering lessons as well
For bridge fiends or would-be fiends, the League is offering lessons as
well as duplicate bride. The League is also sponsoring classes in square and
On Friday, June 30, there will be a general reception of the faculty for
the students at the Horace H. Rackham School. Every Friday and Saturday'
the League is sponsoring a social-evening at 9 p.m. in the League Ballroom.
The League is giving a "Watermelon Cut" for Southern students at 7:30
p.m. Friday, July 14. More chances for dancing will be offered by the League
with tea dances every Wednesday afternoon. r
"All work, no play-" You know the rest. So plan on playing this summer
at Michigan, and get on the Michigan Merry-Go-Round!

ning meals there. Only French may

tion. Trained teachers will be assisted
by the mothers. Those mothers un-

play together under supervision but
also to the mothers who found it
helpful in studying the newer method
in child care and child management.

center of extracurricular programs
supplementing classwork in German
and will be the meeting place of the,

The Deutsches Haus, presented
this year for the first time, is an out-

Otto G. Graf, of the German depart-
ment, director of the house.

high school teachers,.a German Table'

Summer Session and continued dur-
ing the 1937 and 1938 sessions. Meals

man Club of the Summer Session and

special entertainments and social
activities, climaxed by a banquet at

the end of the session.

and assisted by Dr. Walter A. Reich-
art of the German department, the
Deutsches Haus was organized for
the 1939 Summer Session. The Alpha
Sigma Phi House was taken over for
the summer and through an arrange-
ment with the Dean of Men and
Dean of Women, room accommoda-
tions for. men and eating facilities
for men and women have been made
possible. Meals will be served six
days a, week and members of the
German faculty and graduate stu-
dents of German will guide the con-
versation at the table and conduct a
social hour after dinner.
The social program for the summer
for the members of the Deutsches
Haus and members of the German
Club includes a faculty reception for
residents of the house, excursion,
picnic, visiting lecturer, evening of
musical -entertainment and a final
banquet at the end of the Summer

tions should be in by Saturday, July
