Largest enrollment is generally at-
tracted by the chemical and mechan-
ical departments, with aeronautical
engineering running a close third in
total number of undergraduate stu-
dents. Chemical engineering and
metallurgy is the field in which there
is the largest graduate enrollment,
probably because an advanced degree
is almost becoming a prerequisite for
further research and development of
the field in those lines of work.. Fur-
ther courses in plant design will be
offered next year by the chemical
The mechanical engineering de-
partment has added a new course in
air-conditioning and during the Sum-
mer Session of 1939-40 will hold an
Institute in Internal Combustion En-
gines under the chairmanship of Prof.
Walter. E. Lay of the department of
automotive engineering. A graduate
course in advanced structures and
advanced airplane structure will
again be offered by the aeronautical
engineering department. n
Through a cooperative arrangement'
between the University and the State
Highway Department,the testing of
materials for use in state highways
and bridges will be carried out at the
University, and students in advanced
transportation engineering are con-
sequently able to secure the benefits
to be derived from observing the work
of trained State employees in this
field in the highway laboratory in the
East Engineering Building.
Further practical experience is giv-
en students in various branches of
engineering through work in the de-
partment of engineering research.
This department provides employ-
ment for a considerable number of
advanced and graduate students in
research work done for various in-
dustrial engineering concerns under
the supervision of the University.
The engineering mechanics de-
partment will continue its regular
courses and work in the field of fluid
mechanics. The curriculum has been
planned to meet the increasing de-
mand from industry for graduates
with the thorough theoretical ground-
ing. in mechanics and mathematics
needs tocope.with difficult engineer-
ing problems of the research type.

Mason Hall Is
Almost exactly 100 years ago -
February, 1839 to be exact-construc-
tion for the University of Michigan
at Ann Arbor was begun. After con-
siderable discussion four professors
homes were built and, soon afterward,
Mason Hall was constructed.
Today the only reminder of those
four professors' homes is the presi-
dent's residence which, beneath the
changes of a century, still consists of
one of the original buildings. But
now, instead of consisting of a few
thousand dollars worth of newly con-
structed buiklings, the University
possesses, as of June 30, 1938, more
than $50,426,154 worth of lands,
buildings, land improvements and
That does not include the newly
constructed dormitories or other re-
cent additions, which will be valued
at approximately $7,000,000.
In 1938 alone, the last year covered
by the report, addition to buildings
during the year amounted to over a
million dollars. And the director of
plant extensions reported completion
of the Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies, valued at $2,500,-
000; Michigan Union additions worth
$550,000, a $400,000 neuropsychiatric
Institute and other new buildings.
