That the attendance of the summer
session will compare very favorably
with that of other years despite war
time conditions, is evidenced by the
number of early enrollments at the
registrar's office, the good correspond-
ence maintained, and the apparent in-
terest of the faculty and the student
body. As the greater share of the
prospective students have not as yet
arrived in Ann Arbor the present reg-
istration is indicative of a large. at-
tendance, in all probability greater
than that of last year, 1,449 students.
Over 275 courses will be offered.
Owing to the desire of many under-
graduates of military age to acquire
as many hours of credit as possible
before enlisting or being called to the
service, a great percentage of the male
student body will take advantage of
the opportunities that the summer
session affords. The attendance in the
Literary and the Medic colleges faces
an increase for this reason. It is
thought too that there will be a cor-
respondingly strong enrollment of
those under military age due to the
willingness of the student body to
adopt the "Work or Fight" slogan.
An unusually interesting program
of special lectures and entertainments
'vill be offered during the summer ses-
sion of 1918, the first of these, "How
to Read the Newspaper," will be given
by Professor F. N. Scott, head of the
rhetoric department on June 1st.

Maker of Dreams," were successfully
presented by the senior girls Tues-
day evening at the CampIs theater.
The second one, "Ilelena's Iitsband,"
was the bst received, albhougih ithe
third was nearly as popular. Tie mod-
ern satire on the three ancient char-
acters llelen, Menelass and Paris, was
the predominate feature. The fre-
quent allusions to pacifism and a
"piece of paper" were clever touches,
but the climax of the sarcasm was re-
vealed in the parody on the German
hymn of hate. All the acting was na-
tural and spontaneous in spirit, but he
part of Paris taken by Marelka Deng-
1er was especially well done,
The third play "The Maker of1
Dreams," was charming. Of the three
characters, Margaret Cooley was easily
the most popular. The plot, in which
Pierrot finally finds his ideal in Pier-
ette, by the help of "The Maker of
Dreams," was prettily brought out.
Rapid progress has been made by

(lass Service Flag at Gradation
Show Many Men to ie Already in
Service of Country
With 47: stars on the service flag
hanging above the platform in 'Mill
auditorium, the 1918 war class of the
tniversity of Michigan graduated this
morning.E Expressed plans of the men
indicate that the remainder will be in
service of some kind before the end
of the summer.
Although hill auditorium was
crowded the effect war has had upon
the University during the past year
,was very apparent, in the draping of
the flags of the Allies above the plat-
tarot, the service flag of the senior
class, and the even added note of
solemnity in the ceremony. When
presentimtg the diplomas President
Sarry H. Hutchins referred to the 471
men, whto cstead of being present to

the serire of the country.
Pres. Bryan Speak '
labits of life as traps in which men
are crushed when social changes oc-
cur, and means of avoiding them, was
the theme of the commencement ad-
dress delivered by President William
Lowe Iryan of the University of In-
"The evolution of life on this planet
from its first ieginnings until this day
may be viewed as on the one hand the
creation of the organs and the habits
which are found to be temporarily use-
ful and then ain escape out of the trap
of thioe organs and of those habits
into greater and greater freedom,"
said President Bryan.
Play is Valuable
"There are two things that can be
done to escape the traps. One should
apend a certain part of his energy year
by year in acts which lie outside of his
bread winning occupation. This is the
defense for play in all its healthful
forms, from the play of little children
to the high forms of play which we
call art. Play in all forms and gen-
eral education in all its forms tend
to keep us young, tend to keep us
plastic, help us to escape from oc-.
cupational traps.
"There is, however, a far more fund-.
amentat way of escaping from the trap
of one's occupation. That is by a
deeper mastery of the occupation it-
Freedom in Success
President Bryan then cited several
examples of people who rose out of
the rtt of their routine occupations
itto intellectual and social freedomi
by plunging deeper into them and
gaining new knowledge of the sub-
jects. He upheld general rather than
specialized knowledge, since it per-
mits of readier acceptance of condi-
tions, which means better chances for
success. He declared vocational train-
ing as it is being taught, to be injur-
ious to the future of children, and
favored study of the classics, not for
