A comparison of the three five-year
periods since 1901, shows that there

the sumer department. From 1901
through 1906, the enrollment increased
from 416 to 1034. From the year 1906
hrough 1911 therew as an increase
from 1034 to 1194 In the period from,
1901 through 1906 the summer session
lasted only six weeks. During the
second period ethere came a transition
from the six to the eight-week ses-
sion. In the third period from 1911
through 1916 there was an increase
from 1194 to 1793. The official figures
for this year follow:

There was the Bible, the Christian
Herald, "and lately," said the old lady,
"I've been reading the funny little
paper." The student didn't under-
stand what the "funny little paper"
was and grandmother didn't seem to
know either, although she used both
hands to describe it. The inquisitive
student inquired about the newspaper.
"No," grandmother replied, "I don't
read it. The funny little paper tells
me all the news I want to know and
leaves out all the murders and terrible
things that does folks no good to read.
Yesterday the summer school stu-
dent passed grandmother's room and
glanced in as she went by. The old
lady was reading "the funny little
paper." A thought had occurred to
the student by the time she reached

Doty continued the case until Sept.

According to Dr. Wessinger, new
cases will keep on developing for the
next ten days. "There is not much
possibility of the cases ceasing until
the first of September," said Dr. Wes-
singer, "and its also prety hard to say

On up along the walk, seated on a
bench in the shade, perhaps twenty
feet beyond the ribbon, was one of
those neat mustached young men who
ornament the campus, particularly
the comfortable spots, their groups al-
ways easily located by the congenial
atmosphere of cigarette smoke with
which they surround themselves. He,
too, must have seen the ribbon as it
fell, but it was very hot that morn-

sun. Therefore he looked in the other

to carry the Maize and Blue through-
out the season against the Orange of
Syracuse or the Red of Cornell. This
year is peculiar-it will be an unusual
one for Yost-it is unusual for Michi-
gan. Last year's team went down to
a comparatively inglorious finale-the
season was declared to be the worst
in Michigan football. And Yost, the
king of all football mentors, had to sit .
on the sidelines and watch his pet
trick plays smothered by the farmers
from M. A. C., saw Cornell smash
through guards, tackles, center, bore
the shame and chagrin of seeing the
Wolverine goal line crossed and re-
crossed during the season.
That same Yost will again sit upon
Michigan's sidelines this year, but
from the first day he steps upon the
gridiron this season, from the first
minute of football practice, he will
prepare against a recurrence of those
tragic moments of last season's
clashes. Fielding H. will come back

Last aSturday the mysteries of Camp

dering public by the unusal visitors'
day. Many were on the grounds by
10:00 o'clock in the morning and were
given the privilege of inspecting the
camp. The chief morning attraction
wa the ball game between the faculty
and the champion camp team with
Professor Johnston acting as umpire,
The faculty team, headed in feats of
valor by Professor Brodie, won after
a hard eight-inning battle by the score
of 8 to 7.
Perhaps the real feature of the day
was the dedication of the Michigan
Union. President Spender. (pastry
cook) of the Union, appeared with
Charlie Kleine, the introducer, in a
carriage and after interruptions of a
manifold character, gave the dedica-
tion speech and laid the cornerstone
(a loaf of bread). Other smaller fea-
tures consisted of dashes, sack races,
swimming and diving contests among
which was an eight-yard swimming
'ace held between Bobby Burns,
Shirty Webster and Charlie Klene,
with Burns winning first honors.
The day was closed by singing the
"Yellow and Blue." Two hundred and

and, together with 130 camp people,
made a total of 376 present. Camp
