Work in Speaking and 'Writing in En-
gineering College Attracts
Many Aliens
The special courses in English ,of-
fered to the foreign students by the
Colleges of Engineering and Archi-
tecture have proven very successful
since their institution six years ago.
This innovation was due primarily to
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, head of the
English department of these colleges
who gleaned the idea from his per-
sonal interest in the Chinese stu-
dents present at the University. The
result encouraged the extension of this
work and there developed the four
courses which are at present offered
-English 16 and 17, each a four-hour
course, and English 18 and 19, each a
two-hour course.
Every foreign student in the engi-
neering college is required to have a
full knowledge of written and spoken
English before he can obtain his de-
gree. If he is deficient in this study
he may be compelled to take as high
as 17 hours of English. The privilege
of substituting English for a modern
language course is granted him and a
great many students avail themselves
of this opportunity.
The aim of these courses is to af-
ford the student a practical and
idiomatic vocabulary, to aid in adjust-
ing himself to his new environment,
and to make him familiar with the so-
cial and industrial world he is about
to enter. In the classes he is expected
to converse and write so constantly as
t> enable him to develop a faculty for
expressing his ideas concerning the
new things with which he comes in

contact. By a system of phonetic ex-
ercises, the student's difficulties in
pronunciation are overcome and he
soon acquires the habits of correct and
intelligent English.
At present about 14 nationalities
are represented in these classes, which
number is the highest reached since
the opening of the courses. For the
first time in six years the enrollment
does not include a Chinese student.
ThanksgivingI Dance Well Attended

dance at the Michigan Union was at-

Catliolic Students Dance Tomorrow
The Catholic Studens' club will hold'
their first dance of the season at
Packard academy immediately after
a short business meeting from 2 to
5:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
The committee, Kenneth Doyle,'17L,
Robert Heatley, '19, and Angelia Rade-
macher, '17, have been working hard
for the past week to make the affair
a success. A schedule of coming en-
tertainments and dances will be pub-
lished later.
