summer Session Enrollment
expected To Reach 11,500

-Daily-Bruce Bailey
DOUBLEHEADER-Enrollment at the University is seen rising
at registration, where two students sign up for a course. The older

Registration for Summer
Marked by Calm Confusion'
Registration, so chaotic in September and February, was a
strangely calm and sedate affair in June, as the usual crowds of lost
and confused freshmen were replaced by quieter crowds of lost and
confused graduate students.
Nowhere was the slower pace of summer school more evident than
in Waterman Gymnasium during registration. Many familiar scenes
were conspicuous by their absence. Gone were the orientation groups

Fine Favors
School Aid
Dr. Benjamin Fine, former edi-
tor of the New York Times asked
yesterday for an extensive school
building program and a tripling
of teachers' salaries.
Speaking before over 50 people
attending the first day of a week-
long symposium on high school
physics, Fine called for twenty
billion dollars in new school build-
ings and a 59 billion dollar school
rehabilitations program ever the
next ten years.
Fine, now with Yeshiva Univer-
sity, deplored what he called a
"copper philosophy," Nhere valu-
able things are discarded and pen-
nies saved only because the valu-
able things are not recognized.
Education is in this position, he
said: expenditures for it are side-
tracked while the public spends
money for roads and other items
where it can see direct benefits.
Teaching should be made a full-
time occupation, with teachers,
earning enough to eliminate their
need for summer jobs, Fine said.
As an example of the present
status of teachers, he cited the
case where a teacher was turned
down for a loan when he marked
his application "teacher, part-time
bulldozer operator" only to have it
accepted when he changed the
form to "bulldozer operator, part-
time teacher."

The lines in Waterman moved
slowly; many students, instead of
trying to gain a few minutes by
entering the gym ahead of time,
strolled in as the mood took them,
as unconcerned as they were late.
The process of selecting classes
was no longer a scramble for par-
ticular courses at favorable hours.
Most courses were scheduled for
one hour only, and once elections
were made and conflicts elimin-
ated. changes were usually un-
For most students, it was a
memorable exper ence to walk up
to the proper table, announce the

Confusion, of course, was not
eradicated on campus; merely
shifted from cne area of Univer-
sity life to another. It centered
around the race for housing, as
many students who had not
planned to attend summer school
drifted back to campus.
Russian Mob
Pelts Embassy
MOSCOW (P) - A Russian
crowd in a vicious mood attacked
West Germany's Embassy with
stones, sticks and ink bottles yes-
terday in revenge for the assault
on the Soviet Embassy in Bonn
last week.
As the window-smashing dem-
onstration raged, a handful of So-
viet police raced back and forth
blowing whistles and shouting.
Soviet mounted police broke it up
two hours after it began.
West German Ambassador Hans
Kroll said he has delivered "the
strongest possible protest" to a
Soviet deputy foreign minister,
A. V. Zakharov.

Total enrollment in the 1958
summer session was expected to
reach approximately 11,500 stu-
dents, the largest summer enroll-
ment in the University's history.
Incomplete figures place open-
ing day enrollment at 8,062, with
6,959 in Ann Arbor, 203 in Flint
and about 900 in other University
centers throughout the state. Last
year's total was 10,705.
The largest single group on
campus, according to N. Edd Mill-
er, associate director of the Sum-
mer Session, are thoes in graduate
school, including a large number
of teachers. In the past, graduates
have made up about half the sum-
mer total. The same is expected
this year, Miller said.
Enrollment Up Generally
Enrollment increased "across the
board," he explained, particularly
in certain specialized programs. He
said the interdepartmental pro-
gram in Russian Studies had an
enrollment of about 90 students,
and similarly large groups had
enrolled in the special Russian
language course and the programs
for science teachers.
Included in the estimated total
are summer camps for students of
surveying, geology, speech, geo-
graphy, natural resources and
biology, those studying in exten-
sion centers, and a number of two-
week workshops in various courses
which will be held near the end of
the summer.
Interlochen Counted
Students taking courses for Uni-
versity credits at Interlochen music
camp are also being counted.
One possible reason for the in-
crease in the number of teachers,
Miller explained, is a new law
under which a teacher may deduct
certain education expenses fromI
his income tax. Other factors
which may be contributing to the
rising enrollment, he said, is the
scarcity of summer jobs during
the recession, and the general rise
in college attendance.
To Open Bill
The speech department will
open their summer playbill with 1
the hit of the 1957-58 playbill,
William Shakespeare's "Love's
Labor's Lost"
This Elizabethan comedy will
be presented at 8 p.m. tomorrow,
Thursday and Friday at the Lydia
Mendllssoohn Theatre.
The cast will remain substan-
tially the same as the previous
production in April, with Bren-
dan O'Reilly, '58, playing Ferdi-
nand, king of Navarre, and How-
ard Poyourow, '59, as Berowne.
Prices for all performances will
be $1.50, $1.10 and 75 vents. Sea-
son tickets are still available, ac-
cording to the department.
Following "Love's Labor's Lost"
will be three plays and an opera.
The playbill is stressing modern
works for the summer, according
to Tom Skinner of the speech de-
"Inherit the Wind" by Jerome
Lawrence and Robert E. Lee in
1925, will be presented July 9, 10
and 11. This story pits William
Jennings Bryan against Clarence
Darrow to decide the validity of
the God versus Darwin argument.
The department will offer
Graham Green's "Potting Shed"
o nJuly 16, 17 and 18 to comple-
ment the summer session theme;
of the religion of modern man.
"Potting Shed" is a story of faith
in a modern world.
On July 30 and 31 and Aug. 1
Philip Barry's comedy, "Philadel-
phia Story" will be staged at Ly-
dia Mendelssohn. Th Summer
Playbill will close Aug. 6, 7, 8 and
9 with the speech department-

Verdi's opera, "La Traviata. "
