Solutions to building and architec-
tural problems are shown in the archi-
tectural exhibit on the second floor of
Alumni Memorial hall all this week.
Approximately 100 students in the
architectural college contributed to
:his exhibit, which is an annual affair
:o show off the results of the class
work in designing.
No charge is made to the public.
Plans and elevations of many typesl
of buildings, which were. given to the
architectural students to solve as part
of their work in designing classes, are
.he principal features of the exhibit,
which embodies views of many school
Everything from elementary designs
o the most 'advanced work is on ex-
Libit in the large lecture room on the
Second floor of Memorial hall, and the
walls of the room are almost com-
pletely covered with the work of the
architectural students. Many persons;
who are interested in this work vis-
ted the exhibit Monday, the first day.

All . previous records for Summer
Session enrollment were broken when
at non today the registration was re-
ported to have reached 2,023. This is
the first time that the 2,000 mark has
been reached, 1,961 made last year
being the nearest approach to the
present total.
More Coming
Dean E. K. Kraus stated that he
fully expected this to be augmented by
200 or 300 who would straggle in
within the next two weeks. The en-
rollment distributed among the differ-
ent colleges is: Literary, 1,068; engi-
neering and architecture, 400; medical,
141; pharmacy, 18; law, 126; gradu-
ate, 230; biological station, 40.
Registration in the College of Litera-
ture, Science, and the Arts, the Medi-
cal school, the Graduate school, and
the Biological station is above that of
former years, while the records for the
College of Engineering and Architec-
ture, the Pharmacal school, and the
Law school have not yet been equalled.
Reception Important
Dean E. H. Kraus also emphasized
the importance of the reception to be
given by President and Mrs. Burton
from 4:15 o'clock to 5:45 o'clock Fri-
day afternoon in Alumni Memorial hall.
This Will be the first time that the stu-
dents will have an opportunity to m'eet
the new president, and consequently
ziany are expected.

The opening lecture of the 1920
Summer Session program, which is
said by Dean Kraus to be the most
attractive over offered, was given at
-5 o'clock Monday afternoon by Prof.'
'H. C. Sadler, of the department of
naval architecture and marine engi-
neering, in the Natural Science audi-
torium, the subject being, ."hipbuild-
ing in the Great War."
How the United States advanced
from a nation with no maritime rating
in 1914 to that second only to Great
Britain today, and how the largest
shipyard ever known on this earth
was built in less time than tle record
for building one-tenth its size up to
the date of the former's construction,
were points of interest brought out
by Professor Sadler. '
Needed More Ships
He also showed the reason of the
need for more ships owned by this
country and why the United States
had let the shipbuilding industry drag
up to the time of the present war.
These he explained by the fact that
America had used the ships of other
countries to carry its goods, it being
to .its advantage to do so, but the
coming of the war caused the foreign
ships to be wit\drawn and the conse-
quent- ship shortage for American
When the need for more 'ships first

arose, according to Professor Sadler,
the Shipping Board act was passed,
which carried with it an appropriation
of $50,000,000, together with the au-
thorization of a Federal Shipping
At this time what shipyards the
United States did possess were busy
with foreign contracts, so that it was
not an easy matter to build steel
ships, ,which led the Board to build a
great number of wooden ships. This
step, according to Professor Sadler,
was a mistake.
Shipping Board Incapable
Just before this country entered the
war the shipping board having proved
incapable of handling the situation.
the Emergency Fleet corporation was
authorized. The latter was the big-
gest single corporation ever organized
in the history of the world, he stated.
Its organization was complex, as the
building of a ship brought into play
every engineering principle in all
branches, and this made necessary a,
highly developed organization. There
were also many subsidiary branches
of the corporation, each of which in
itself was a complete organization.
Among the latter he mentioned the
transport division, which built rail-
roads, highways, and waterways be-
tween different building points of the
ships; 'the housebuilding division,
which provided homes for workers
where yards were not close to a large
city and available housing facilities;,
the welfare division, which saw to it
that the workers were kept in the
proper state of mind and furnished
amusement and things of a similar na-.
ture; and the sanitary division, which
looked after the sanitation of the-
Every Type Built
Every kind of merchant ship was
built, the most novel and interesting
perhaps being the c'oncrete ship.
Plans were made for building 57 of
these ships, but the armistice made+
possible the finishing of only seven,
so that their; practicability has not
been sufficiently determined as yet.
Professor Sadler believes that, no
matter what may be the policy of the
government in the future in regard
to a merchant marine, it will keep the
ships it already has built.

extr.a running so tired him that he was
unable to do better than a fourth in a
closely bunched 10 second hundred.

"Some Problems of City School.Adm'in-
istrator," at 5 o'clock today in the Na-
tural Science auditorium.-
NMr. Cody, who has been the Detroit
superintendent for some'time, has had
to deal with the difficult problems of
a rapidly growing city and how to
keep the educational facilities equal toy
the increased population, and his work
in this field has made him one of the
most, prominent educators,; in the
country. *

the ninth inning the Cardinals started
a rally, and after North, the pitcher,
had been to bat and made a hit, Knode
was sent in to run for him. He failed
to count a run, however.
