Add N'umerous Military Courses to
Annual Summer
Indications of the expected enroll
ment in the 1917 summer session up
to the present time tend to show thai
the registration will be near or per-
haps equal to that of last year's, d.e-
spite disturbing war conditions. With
the regular schedule of courses sup-
plemented with additional military
instruction attractions, lDan Kraus
expressed lie belief that wmteve (dc--
crease might result from the present
situation w old be overcome.
Numerous courses, such as Arm
Stores Methods, War Pathology and
Bacteriology, two courses In military
training under the supervision of Ala-
jor E. J. Wilson, and courses in rmili
tary and civil railroads and house-
hold economics, will be given ding
the summer session for the firs time.
Unusual heavy registration is ex-
pected in the medical department, due
to the need of such training curim
the war crisis. The increased etroll-
ment in this department, it is figured..
will overbalance the d'ecrease in the
law department. The courses in mili-
tary training and army stores teeth-
Oss are looked upon to offset any de-
cide decrease. About the normal en-
rollnfit is expected in the literary,
graduate antI pharmacy depa'tments.
Read of Law School Receives Flatter--
ing Offer from Eastern
Dean Henry M. Rates of the Univer-
sity Law school, has been granic da
leave of absence by the Board of tie-
gents for one year, following a flatter-
ing offer of a chair of law at larsard
university. Dean Bates, it is rumor-
ed. will accept the position for one
year and in that time will definitly
decide whether he will take the chair
or not.
At one time Dean Bates practihed
law in Chicago and was soon called
to a professorship at Michigan. In
1910 he was made dean of the Law
school and has e.ted in that capacity
ever since.
In addition to the leave of absence
granted Dean Bates, the Board of Re-
gents also cut the annual budget at
its meeting Tuesday morning. The
total budget for the coming year total-
als $2,064,152, which is a considerable
decrease over that of previous years.
No member of the faculty received an
increase more than $100, and those
receiving more than $1200 per year
were in no case given an increase.
The regular weekly dances of the
Michigan Union have been discon-
tinued for the rest of the summer
owing to the decided lack of interest
shown in the affairs, according to re-
suits of several dances scheduled last
year. Although the interest shown in
the weekly assemblies during the reg-
ular semesters aa always been high,
the hot summer weather aa detracted

enthusiasm in the light fantastics.
The offices sod reading rooms will
be open, however, during the summer
session and members and new students
are urged to frequent the present
temporary quarters of the Union. The
Union restaurant will also be closed

Seventy-Third Comanence-

With the sound of the bugler's
"Reveille," the 1917 War Class, some-
what depreciated in number by the
early departure of many of its class-
mates, was ushered into the new world
this morning with a spirit of duty and
responsibility to its country that sur-
passed all the sacredness and solemn-
ity of many a commencement day. The
event marked the closing of the seven-
ty-third annual commencement exer-
cises of the University of Michigan,
and resulted in the giving of diplomas
to 1,142 members of the graduating
The present war crisis added a new
sentiment to the exercises, and the en-
tire affair seemed to make a deeper
impression upon both visitors and
graduates than any exercises have

Alumni registration began on Mon-
day in Alumni Memorial Hall, and in

tion and ball was held at the Michigan
