Spotlight for summer session ac-
tivities along the social line is on the

which will follow the faculty recep-
tion Thursday in the Rackham build-
ing. At this time holiday-ers receive
tickets either at the end of the re-
ceiving line or at the Women's Lounge
in the building for one of two dances
-in the Union and in the Lague.
Dance Will Be Free
This initial event is free of charge
upon presentation of the ticket, and
Clark McClellan and his rhythm club
will play at the League, with the or-
chestra for the Union dance to be
announced later.
Commencingrnext weekend and
continuing through the season will
be a series of Friday and Saturday
evening dances, all to be held in the
League ballroom, with the price of
40 cents per person admission charge.
Hours for these dances are 9 p.m. to'
1 a.m. on Friday and 9 p.m. to 12
p.m. on Saturday.
For all. League dances the music
and entertainment will be furnished
by McClellan, who stars the Rhythm-
aires, Shirley Sherie and Herb Mil-
ler. An Ypsilanti outfit, McClellan's
orchestra has played at many dances
and at proms in that city, besides
being scheduled for fraternity and
sorority events at the University dur-
ing the past years.
Tea, Dances Scheduled
Informal free tea dances will
occupy Wednesday afternoons, from
3:30 to 5:30 p.m., in the ballroom.

July 9.
For these and for the evening
dances students may attend either
with or without partners as they de-
sire, for there will be on hand a num-
ber of hostesses to perform the for-
malities of introduction, and to keep
things running smoothly.
Weekend Affairs Popular
Last year the Friday and Satur-
day night dances drew enthusiastic
crowds of more than 400. "Kampus
Kwiz Kapers" featured a hilariouss
contest, while the North and the
South were honored respectively byt
"Yankee Night" and 4the "Water-
melon Cut." Foreign students found1
themselves the center of attention1
at the "Globe Trot," and a "Sadie
Hawkins" dance provided another;
evening of merriment.
Girls who wishto sign up for
hostess positions at bhe tea and ev-
ening dances may do so at the office
of Miss Ethel McCormick, social ad-
visor, in the League.
Text Lending
Library Open
For 5th Year
Now entering its fifth year of serv-
ice to students of all schools in the
University, the Textbook Lending
Library will again offer books for
use during the Summer Session to
needy students recommended by Stu-
dent advisers.

The Library, housed in the Angell
Hall Study Hall, has over 800 books
and seven slide rules at its disposal
to lend students unable to purchase
their own equipment.
Students, before obtaining' help
from the Library, must be recom-
mended by advisers in the different
colleges. Freshmen and sophomores
in the College of Literature, Science
and the Arts should apply to an Aca-
demic Councillor, Room 108 Mason
Hall. Juniors and seniors of that
college should apply to Assistant
Dean E. A. Walter, Room 1220 Angell
Needy education students will be
recommended by R. W. Webster,
4200C University High School, upon
application to his office, and students
in the engineering college should see
Prof. A. D. Moore, 268 West Engi-
neering Building.
Books will be charged to students
for the entire Summer Session.
The project started in May, 1937,
with the raising of $2,050 in gifts
from alumni. Since that time stu-
dent gifts and the income from the
original fund have enlarged the Li-
brary. Unclaimed articles from the
Lost and Found Department have
also been added to the collection.
Students who can contribute to the
Lending Library's collection are re-
quested to leave textbooks at the
General Library. Angell Hall Study

fundamentals as well as to smooth off
rough places.
For the fourth consecutive year,
Benjamin B. Lovett of the Edison In-
stitute will bring his six-lpiece square

Times Arranged
The beginners' class will meet at

their steps till 9 p.m.

Program for classes in the women's
physical education department has
been announced by Dr. Margaret Bell,
head of the department.
Instruction in the skills and rules
will be supplemented by sidetrips into
etiquette in the sports, swimming,
archery, golf, riding, tennis and tap
and modern dancing.
Arranged this year in a different
manner, the schedule of courses falls
into three overlapping sections-a
six and a four week section beginning
this week, and the other four week
division commencing July 14. With
this arrangement students will be
able to fit into their programs the
sports in which they wish training
and to switch sports as they desire.
The entire staff of the department
will cooperate this summer in an in-
novation-a sports seminar which will
run through the six week period. This
class, which is open alike to men
and women, will be held from 4 to 6
p.m. each Tuesday in the Women's
Athletic Building. Described as a
laboratory course covering recent
trends in women's athletics, the sec-
tion will be opened today by Dr.
Mabel Rugen and Miss Laurie Camp-
bell with a discussion of the Na-
tional Section of women's athletics.
Also treated in the course will be
such subjects as intercollegiate ath-
letics for women; work and corrective
programs for the handicapped; co-

recreation, leadership and outing
activities and coaching tips in indi-
vidual sports.
The seminar is comparable to a
"refresher" course, in that it deals
with changes in the physical educa-
tional program in the country and
covers a broad territory.
Offered during the other two sec-
tions is a class in body conditioning.
The purposes of this course are to
tone the muscles, increase endurance
and offer individual instruction in
posture and carriage and in reducing.
