Rare .tlusie For
Wolverine Staff
Destruction of Old School of Mnsie

Little do the readers of the Wolver-
ine realize the true conditions under
which every member of the staff
grinds out his material. The School
of Music, to the left of the Press build-
ing, is being torn down. The air
is, filled with the thuds from many
hammers, the buzzing of saws, the
banging of boards, the heavy thumps
of the bricks as they light on the
ground, and a multitude of noises that
can not be classified in a distinctive

delicate and harmonious notes from
violins, pianos and guitars. Human
nightingales and their soft and melod-
ious voices must not be forgotten, for
their charms were appreciated a great
deal more than any musical instru-
ment. Ah, if the old conditions were
only here! However, this year's staff
will have to be content, and anticipate

the keen joy the members of the Wol-
verine next summer will greet the real
modern, and melodious music school.

most imposing buildings. Plans, as made, will make the new structure the center of student activities and will

For a number of years it has been
the custom of the niversity to give a
series of lectures on medical subjects
that would be of particular interest to

first of this series will be given by

Burglars entered the Delta Theta
Phi house, 721 South State street, last
night and managed to get away with
$61 in money from the only two oc-
cupants of the house. No clue of the
robbers has been uncovered this
morning and it is thought that they
have iade good a safe escape.
While going through the rooms, the
burglars disregarded jewelry and oth-
er articles, taking only the actual
money they could find in the rooms.

Says Essense of heal University Is
- ihe Spirit, Not BuIldings
and Aluni
Prof. A. G. Hall, dean of the sum-
mer session, delivered the second of
the summer session series of lectures
Tuesday afternoon at 5 o'clock in the
auditorium of the Natural Science
building. Professor Hall had a good
attendance and a splendid interest was
manifested in his address.
Professor Hall prefaced his address
by a very cordial word of welcome to
the students of the summer session
and then went directly into the subject
of his lecture "Michigan Men and Mo-
In discussing the question of "What
is the University of Michigan?" Pro-
fessor Hall said in substance, "It is
not the buildings, some new and im-
posing, some old and hallowed by
memories of professors and students;
it is not the campus of constantly in-
creasing acres; it is not the alumnae
of over 30,000 men and women, nor is
it the splendid lecture series and
courses of the curriculum." The real
University, he said, "Is the spirit of
the University."
After defining the spirit of the Uni-,
versity, Professor Hall gave an inter-
esting resume of the legislation both
state and national, creating the Uni-
versity of Michigan. He said in part:
"The first great name connected with
the state of Michigan and its educa-
tional system was Thomas Jefferson,
who drew the ordinance that estab-
lished the northwest territory." Pro-
fessor Hall also discussed the ordi-
nance of 1787 and the act of 1821, the
later being of particular benefit to
the University in giving it a broader
and wider field of work.
Professor Hall divided the outline
of the history of the University into
the regimes of the different men who
have been president or acting presi-
dent of the Jjniversity. Giving the
chief events in each Yadministration
that were of most benefit to the ad-
vancement of the University.

Summer Session Registering Continues
Slowly; Fourth of July In-
Enrollment of the 1917 summer ses-
sion is still progressing. Students are
somewhat late in returning, but it is
expected that all the results will be in
by Saturday. Tuesday's enrolling was
slow, probably due to the fact that the
majority of the students registering
today remained home for the Fourth.
This year's attendance record is
closely approaching normal, and in
the literary and engineering colleges
more students have signed up than
last year. The law department is far
below the regular average. The heavy
enrollment in the military courses,
however, tends to counter-balance any
loss in the other departments. There
are approxibately 1,600 students reg-
istered this summer.
The literary department is almost
almost equal to that of last year, hov-
ering around 275. The engineering de-
partment has already passed last
year's record by 45, amounting to
about 335. In the medical school the
enrollment is larger than usual. The
graduate and pharmacy colleges have
not yet sent in their reports, although
the average is almost the same as
former years.
The remainder. of the week will be
devoted to enrolling the students, and
the final reports on Saturday will tend
to show what loss or gain there wal
be. At present it is likely that the at-
tendance will be nearly normal.

Great Lakes Station Scene of Many
Musical and Appetite
Michigan's representatives at the
Great Lakes station are making new
organizations daily. Two of the more
prominent ones are the "Catch-as-
catch-can Eaters" and the company
"J Jazz Band." The former, accord-
ing to an issue of the Great Lakes
Recruit, just received at the office, is
made up chiefly of Michigan men.
The article as taken in part from
the issue is as follows:
"It was hert, also, that we were
initiated into the Olive Twistian
science of getting 'seconds,' an amuse-
ment entered into with great gusto by
some of our more proficient catch-as-
catch-can eaters, including 'MUMPY'
Grylls, 'TRAY' Beal, and little
'WIENIE' Davis.
"That night 'GREENIE' Greenwald
and 'LOU' Mattern unlimbered their
good right arms and the company J
Jazz band was born. Guitars, banjos,
'kes,' drums, and horns were pressed
into service, and the boys spent the
evening in singing the old songs,
ranging in quality and sentiment from
'The Bum Army' to 'When Night Falls
Dear.' During the rendition of the
last-named selection, several lonely
youths hied themselves to the outer
edge of the circle and gazed pensively
on in a certain direction. It is report-
ed that our camp Lothario, 'NORM'

Bolles, found it necessary to keep con-
stantly turning."
