W. B. Lefiingwell Will Start Special
Lectures With Talk on "The
Pacific Northwest"
Series of Educational Movie Shows
Will be Given During
The first weeks' program of special
lectures and features for the students
of the summer session will commence
Tuesday afternoon when Mr. W. B.
Leffingwell, well-known lecturer and
traveller of Chicago, will lecture on
"The Pacific Northwest" at 5:00
o'clock in the auditorium of the Na-
tural Science building. The lecture
will be accompanied with motion and
still pictures, a large number of which
will be colored.
The real beginning of the summer
session program, apart from the actual
University work, will take place at
5:00 o'clock Wednesday afternoon with
the president's reception for summer
session students in Alumni Memorial
hall. President Harry B. Hutchins and
Mrs. Hutchins, as well as most of the
University officers and deans, will be
in line. The reception is an annual
affair, and gives an opportunity to
summer students, and especially those
who are at Michigan for the first time,
to become acquainted with the more
important officers of the university.
At 8:00 o'clock Wednesday evening
Charles Frederick Morse, a prominent
Detroit organist, will give a concert
on the Frieze Memorial organ in Hill
auditorium. Miss Ada Grace Johnson,
soprano, of the faculty of the Univer-
sity School of Music, will assist in the
Regent F. B. Leland will lecture at
5:00 o'clock Thursday evening in the
Natural Science auditorium, taking for
his &ubject "Tuberculosis: Its Ultimate
Practical Eradication, and the Duty of
the State Toward Those Afflicted."
Regent Leland is one of the most
active anti-tuberculosis workers in
Detroit, and is a candidate for gov-
ernor of the state, subject to the will
of the Republican primaries. He was
recently re-elected, together with Re-
gent Junius E. Beal, of Ann Arbor, to
his second term on the Board of Re-
gents of the University.
The first of a series of educational
moving picture shows will be given in
the same auditorium at 8:00 o'clock
Thursday night. The first night's pro-
gram probably will include moving
picture trips through Yellowstone and
Estes Parks, and educational films on
"Safety First," and "Cement Con-
struction." The "movie" shows are
being made possible through the Uni-
versity's connection with the Univer-
sity Summer Session Circuit, a film
circuit which includes the University
of Pittsburg, the University of Indiana,
Michigan, M. A. C., and the University
of Kansas.
Prof. F. N. Scott, of the rhetoric de-
partment, will lecture at 5:00 o'clock
Friday afternoon in the auditorium on
"Americanism," and Prof. H. R. Cross,
of the fine arts department, will give
an illustrated lecture in the same place
at 8:00 o'clock that evening, on "The
Story of American Painting."
The complete program of special
lectures, concerts, recitals and excur-

sions to be given during the summer
is contained in a folder issued by the
summer session. A copy may be ob-
tained by application at the offices of
the session il University hall. All lec-
tuxes are open to the general peblic,
and unless otherwise stated in the
program they will be given in the, au-
ditorium of the Natural Science build-

Tnker Accepts
Big .Position
Mr. Wellington Tinker, for sever
years University Y. M. C. A. secre

new work of all state university Y

Although Mr. Tinker is assuming a
much more important position than h
has held on the campus, the new offi-
cers of the local "Y" and hundreds o
students who are personally attached
to him are expressedly sorry to see
him go. The new "Y" building noe
going up, the Busrah campaigns, Lake
Geneva representations, and many
other works of the "Y" are largely the

Old « U" Hall
Ren~ewsThem All
(By Phil Pack)
Grizzled and gray, bent and wearied
by his long journey, he stepped from
the car. His old telescope, bulging
with its contents, he laid down for a
moment'while he wiped the perspira-
tion from his forehead. Taking up his
burden once more, he started for the
depot exit. Cries from taxi-cab driv-
ers greeted his ears, and confused him.
Newsboys jostled him, and pink-cheek-
ed young men shoved him aside as
they checked their suit-cases for Chi-
cago, and Paris, Illinois, and Oshkosh,
Wisconsin. Unmindful of the entreaties
of taxi starters, be stumbled up the
hill toward State street. He seemed
to be fsmiliar with the town in a hazy
sort of way. I watched his bent, old
figure go up the hill, slowly but sure-
ly. Then I turned away, for the train
had come in and my friends were
I sawfhim again that day. It was
on State street.gHethad left his bag-
gage, and was walking down the street
with jaunty step. On his coat lapel
was pinned a badge with ribbons of
yellow and blue. On the badge were
the figures, "1861." Then I under-
stood. And as I watched him pass
me, I caught the air of a song he was
humming under his breath. It was
the "Yellow and the Blue."

An increased interest in Mexican
SUMMER DANCES UNCERTAIN 1d isatiu-Americar, affairs due to the
eresent Mexican cr ss, has caused the

Despite the handicaps imposed by
the crowded temporary quarters which
_ will house the Michigan Union during
the summer and the next year, at least,
it will be the purpose of the newly
' elected officers who assumed their of-
ficial duties on Commencement day, to
' do considerable constructive work.
The usual Union functions will be
carried on, as far as the crowded con-
ditions permit. The employment bureas
will be opened in the fall, in spite of
rumors that it might be discontinued.
The regular Saturday night dances
will be given in the old dance hall
which has been moved to the bacl
of the lot along with the old Pond
homestead, where it comprises the
temporary building.
The plans for the annual fall foot-
ball smoker have been started with
the appointment of Edwin Pa'Imer, '17,
as general chairman. The heads of
the other important committees, in-
cluding the man who will conduct the
campaign for membership, will be
announced sometime this summer.
"It will be our policy to try out new
ideas and to push them to a concu-
sion, successful or not, before the
Union enters into its new building,"
said the new president, Glenn M.
Coulter. "We want the Union to b'
on as firm a basis as possible before
the Angell memorial is completed and
to do this we must work out a con-
structive policy for next year. The
Union can be of great benefit to the
students even in its cramped quarters,
and the officers will surely do all in
their power to have the Union mean
something to every student."
Work on the building will be started
sometime during the summer, although
immediate action is not expected.
The temporary quarters will be open
during the entire summer for the bene-
fit of those attending the summer ses-
sion. The desk and dining room will
be closed, as it has been proved that
these ventures did not pay in the sum-
mer. The reading room and other fa-
cilities will be available, however. The
management has not as yet deter-
mingd whether dances will be given
this summer.
Those who assumed office on Com-
mencement day are: President, Glenn
M. Coulter, '16-'18L; recording secre-
tary, Lee E. Joslyn, '17; Law vice-
president, Kenneth Barnard, '17L; Lit
vice-president, A. S. Hart, '17; Engi-
neering vice-president, R. W. Collins,
'17E; Medical vice-president, George
McClure, '17M; Combined colleges
vice-president, E. W. Crysler, '17P.
Chinese "Prince" Demands Damages
"Prince" Gung Yi Cheng, graduate
of the University, has demanded $51
damages of Hugo Hesse of Detroit
for causing an auto collision with his
car on Woodward avenue a few days
! ago.

addition of a nu ber of attractive
courses in all the colleges and schools
in the University that are expected to
imake the 1916 Summer Session the
-ilst popular in the institution's his-
Ni'e courses will be given in engi-
neering and literary Spanish instead
of the four ordinarily held, and two
courses on Latin-American affairs will
be given for the first time by Dr. Will-
iam 1. Schurz, of the history depart-
i o_. P erbert E. Bolton, of the Uni-
riy of California, will conduct a
c: inary on "The Relation of the
2'i ed States with Mexico," and a
- "se on the "Opening of the South-
T" 'he former course will be espe-
" y appropriate because of the pres-
f :t .Ilexien situation, while the latter
::I: to:'ch only with Mexican affairs
cohere American territorial expansion
was involved.
In aiost all of the other depart-
zcnts of the University similar addi-
tions will be made.
Prof. Leroy Waterman, of the Se-
metics department, is giving two
courses which have never been pre-
sesnted before to summer students.
They are entitled "Israelitish History
and "Prophecy," and "The Ethnic
"Gemus and Precious Stones," a
cours ,iven by Dean Edward Henry
Kraus, of the mineralology depart-
mxnt, for the first time during last
semester, will be conducted again,
while two courses in the fine arts de-
partment, which have not been given
in the summer session since 1914 will
be presented by Prof. Herbert R.
Cross. One of the courses is intro-
ductory to the study of fine arts, and
the other is entitled "The Technique
mnd Criticism of Painting."
A number of changes are to be made
sn the department of embalming and
sanitary science, and two courses,
'Autopsy Technique," by Dr. A. S.
Narthin of the Medical School, and
"Mortuary Law," by Prof. John R.
Rood of the Law School, are to be
added. The Michigan department of
embalming now has what are believed
to be the strictest entrance require-
nents of any school in the country,
and undertakers holding a certificate
from the University department are
ranted a state license without exam-
The number of applications for per-
;nission to study at the University Bio-
logical station on Douglas Lake has
reached the limit so that the enroll-
-ient there will be 33, the same as that
of last year.
The enrollment at the engineering
camp at Camp Davis, also on Doug-
las Lake, has broken all previous rec-
ords, and is expected to reach 105.
when the season starts.

All of This Year's Pitching Intact;
All-Fresh Yields Good
Elmer Brandell, '17, from Anoka,
Minn., is the man chosen to lead the
1917 baseball team. Brandell was
practically the unanimous choice for
the position.
From the standpoint of experience
and ability, the new captain is well
fitted to lead the Varsity nine.
"Brandy" has won two "M's" in the
diamond sport, and has proved a
strong asset to his team both years,
as a result of exceptional ability with
the willow and in the field. Besides
being a star performer, Brandell has
at all times showed an aggressive
spirit on the field, which gives prom-
ise of good leadership next year.
With only four men of this year's
Varsity squad lost to next season's
team, the new captain should have lit-
tle difficulty in producing a winning
team. Third base will be the only po-
sition in the infield to be filled by a
new man and there is enough good
material in the 1916 Varsity squad and
this year's All-Fresh squad to easily
take care of that place.
All of this year's pitching staff will
return next year and in addition to
these men, the All-Fresh team will
contribute Parks, Turner and Glenn to
the pitching staff.
In case Captain Brandell decides to
lend his services to the infield staff,
there will be two vacancies in the out-
field, the other caused by the gradua-
tion of George Labadie. It will be an
easy matter however, to fill these
places as "Billy' 'Niemann, the vet-
eran outfielder, is capable of doing
several men's work.
Takes His A. B. In
Khaki Costume
Khaki-clad, dusty and tired he tore
up State street. The train from Gray-
ling was late. Already the Commence-
ment crowds were gathering and the
faculty had begun to march into Hill
auditorium. State street was almost
deserted. At Liberty street a man
hurried to get into line. The Grayling
scout hesitated, and then: "Bill!" he
shouted, "Bill!"
Bill turned around. The wind al-
most took away his mortar-board cap
but he rescued it. He saw only a tall,
dusty-looking soldier hurrying toward
him. As he turned to go the scout
hailed him again. Then Bill recog-
nized hin. "Why, Mel," he said,
"where's your cap and gown? Where
have you been?" "Grayling," was the
reply. "Train late. Where can I get
a cap and gown?" Bill gave him his.
He could get another. "Beat it now,"
he said ,"I'll be there on time."
So in a dirt-stained khaki uniform
Melvin Sauer, '16, took his degree of
Bachelor of Arts along with the rest
of the class. No one was the wiser.
When the exercises were over we
asked him about Grayling. "No," he
said, "I don't think there'll be a war.
But it's great training up there at
Grayling. The boys are learning a
