Front Door Of Michigan Union
Is Closed As Usual-To Ladies

Passes Away At dome

Le Foyer Francais To Be Open;
French Club Meets Tomorrow

By Jack Grady
(Michigan Union Secretary)
Tradition takes quite a kicking
around during the rush of a summer
session, but one of the oldest stand-
ing rules at the University of Mich-
igan is generally deemed worthy of
observance. Michigan custom de-
mands that women use the side en-
trance of the Michigan Union.
The rule receives due: respect dur-
ing regular sessions, according to
George Johnson, veteran Union
doorman, but the summer sessions
keep him hopping. George isn't a
natural misogynist, and he doesn't
run a flying block into everything

boards, wil announce the fea-
tures of this program.
Many visitors will be in Ann
Arbor during the summer at-
tending conferences on subjects
of a wide character. There will
a large number of Latin Ameri-
cans in our midst. The special
program of the New Education
Fellowship, July 6 to July 12,
will consider some important
educational problems of our
southern neighbors. In addi-
tions, Canada will be well repre-
sented, and the report of adap-
tations in education in the
Dominion in times of war will
also be an important feature of
the week. There will be a group
of Latin Americans in a special
program arranged in coopera-
tion with the Rockefeller Foun-
dation. The purpose is to bet-
ter enable mature ,scholars and
investigators with Spanish or
Portuguese backgrounds to pre-
pare themselves for their work
in educational and research in-
stitutions in the United States
during the coming winter.
Through the instrumentality of
the steamship company, The
Grace Lines, students and pro-
fessional men and women, pri-
marily from Ecuador and Vene-
zuela, will be in our University
community for varying lengths
of time through the Summer
Session. Since there will be such
a large number of persons in our
community to whom American
institutions and culture are
strange, it falls upon those more
accustomed to University life in
this country to show a spirit of
hospitality and appreciation
that ordinarily would not be so
To those students in the out
stations of the University, may
I also express my wish for a
profitable season of study and

sporting a skirt that approaches the
Union's front entrance. He general-
ly just grabs unheeeding damsels by
the arm, looks 'em in the eye, and
asks them to use the side entrance
the next time. And if it's raining or
there's a bus to catch. George has
been known to have sudden develop-
ments of astigmatism.
George likes his job, has been at
it 18 years. Chasing women-in the
Union, that ,is,-keeps him in good
condition, weight down, eyes sharp,
and so on. Most of the culprits are
pretty nice about it, too. The great
part of the violations are out of ig-
norance of the taboo, Geeorge says.
Of course, every now and then he gets
a huffy one. George just lets that
kind go. After all, he points out, the
rule bars only the ladies from the
front door.
But experience teaches that it
isn't George's reproach that is the
major penalty for the flounting of
one of Michigan's oldest traditions.
Penitent co-eds report that the dour
looks, growls, and grimaces of loyal
Michigan men on observing a viola-.
tion of front door sanctity have
haunted them for weeks. Many co-
-ds say it's the one mistake men are
sure to notice.
The ban on feminine use of the
Union front door is lifted during
conventions and once a year during
the Union Open House celebration.
At all other times women use the
front door under penalty of George's
wrath, the scorn of Michigan men,
and the disdain of their better in-
formed sisters.

William .Butts
Dies At Home
Dr. William H. Butts, 84, member
of the faculty for 24 years and pro-
fessor emeritus of mathematics died
recently at his home in the city.
Born in Harmony, N. Y., Dr. Butts
joined the faculty in 1898 after serv-
ing 14 years as principal of the Mich-
igan Military Academy. He served as
assistant dean of the College of En-
gineering from 1908 until 1922, when
he retired.
Dr. Butts was a large contributor
to the University's mathematical li-
brary, one of the finest in the United
States. He was the organizer of the
North Central Association of Col-
leges and Secondary schools.
Educated at the University, Dr.
Butts also held a degree= from the
University of Zurich, Germany.
Summer Forestry
Jobs Found Ample
Depletion in the ranks of forestry
service and conservation agencies due
to the draft has given undergradu-
ate students in the forestry school an
excellent chance for summer employ-
ment, according to Prof. Shirley W.
Allen of the school.
Twenty-four undergraduate stu-
dents have taken advantage of the
opportunity to gain experience under
actual conditions. Seven students
are working in Colorado, seven in Or-
egon, eight in Idaho and Montana
and two in Colorado.
The young foresters are employed
in fire control operations and in con-
trol of White Pine and Blister Rust.

"Le Theatre de Georges Courteline"
will be evaluated at the first meet-
ing of the Summer Session French
Club, to be held at 8 p.m. tomorrow
at Le Foyer Francais, 1414 Washte-
Illustrating his talk by scenes from
Courteline's plays,) Prof. Charles E.
Koella will discuss this man who is
considered the greatest of the humor-
ists in the modern French theatre.
Parlez-vous francais? Seulement
un peu? Then you may seek mem-
bership in the club. All that are
required are a reasonable proficiency
in the spoken language and a lively
interest in the French language and
arts. Any student-graduate or un-
dergraduate-who falls into this cate-
gory has been invited to apply to
Professor Koella, adviser to the club,
9-10 or 11-12 a.m. today or tomor-
row in Room 200 of the Romance
Languages Building.
Meeting weekly, regularly at 8 p.m.
each Thursday, the French club will
hear informal lectures by members
of the faculty or by more advanced
students. They will participate in
group singing of French songs, in a
number of games and in discussions
of broad subjects.
Founded in 1935 by Professor Koel-
ia, the summer sesion French club
has been instrumental in putting stu-
dents interested in France and French
in more direct touch with the re
spective topics of interest.
Engine English
Teachers Plan
Meeting Here
The School of Engineering of the
University has announced a Con-
ference for Teachers of English in
Technical Schools, in order to aid
teachers of English in their common
With the recent increase of attend-
ance at engineering schools, problems
of the teaching of English have be-
come markedly difficult, and it is
hoped that through the Conference
discussions of problems and possible
solutions, some basis of experimenta-
tion may be found.
The Conference will be carried on
from June 30 through through July
18, but no actual course of study
has been .set up. No credit can be
given for attendance at the Con-
ference, but parallel courses will be
given in the graduate school of Eng-
lish and other University depart-
The general program of the Con-
ference will be held in the auditori-
um of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.

With its aim the creation of true
French atmosphere for students and
teachers of that language, Le Foyer
Francais will open its doors this sum-
mer for the sixth consecutive year.
Offering facilities for housing 18
women and providing board for other
women and for men, this house will
be the meeting place of faculty and
graduate and undergraduate students
interested in the French language
who desire a place where nothing but
French is spoken.
This summer Le Foyer Francais
will again occupy the Kappa Alpha
Theta sorority house at 1414 Wash-
tenaw. Directrice will again be Miss
Jeanne Rousselet, Goucher College,
Baltimore, with Miss Deirdre McMul-
lan, instructor in French at thf
Grosse Pointe High - School, as her
assistant. Arrangements for board-
ing at the house, or taking only oc-
casional meals there, may be com-
pleted by calling Miss McMullan at
Founded in 1936 by Prof. Charles
E. Koella, the French house will be
under the auspices of the French de-
partment, with its founder as facul-
ty adviser.
One of the conditions under which
students may live at the house is that
they speak French exclusively "both
within the house and when together
outside. Faculty members and more
advanced students will help direct
conversation during meals and at oth-
er times.
Activities have been planned in
collaboration with three other de-
partments in the Univeersity. Prof.
Harold E. Wethey, chairman of the
Department of Fine Arts, will give a
series of illustrated lectures on French
art and Prof. Percival Price, teacher
of composition and University Car-
illonneur, is to offer talks on French
music, with recordings of the selec-
tions analyzed.
Stress, will be. put on French pro-
nunciation in Le Foyer Francais, and
the Department of Speech will make
recordings at the beginning. and the
end of the season of each member's
voice and pronunciation. In this
way it is hoped that defects may be
routed out and improvement noted.

First of the three lectures to be
given will be presented at 7 p.m July
8 in the Natural Science Auditorium
and the following two talks on suc-
ceeding Tuesdays in the Rackham
Lecture Hall, at the same time.
The opening lecture will combine
subjects of registration and "Course
Obstacles." The former will be an
explanation of how to register with
the office and the latter part of the
program will point out how many per-
sons are unable to qualify for positions
in teaching because they have taken
courses in which the field is vastly
Through the use of slides, Dr. Pur-
dom will show that careful planning
and consultation before deciding on
a teaching major will greatly increase
the chances'of securing a, position
after graduation.
The second lecture will deal with
"Undesirable Personality Traits," and
the third, "Why People do not Hold
The Bureau hopes that through this
annual service, students may be aid-
ed in securing and holding positions
by taking courses for which there is
a demand and overcoming objection-
al qualities in their personalities.,
