Courses in Education and Lectures
Are Proving To Be Most At-
tractive To Students.
PRIZES TO BE
Cambridge Professor To Give Two
Series of Educational Lectures
Dr. Ivan C. Hannah, of Cambridge
University, England, who has given
a series of lectures during the last
two summer sessions, will be heard
here again next week when he will
give two series of lectures, one at 9
.a m. throughout the week and anoth-
er at 11 a. m.
The series to be given at the 9
o'clock period will be entitled " 1 he
Psychology of Peoples," and the
whole subject will be treated in six
lectures. "Weak Nations" will be the
subject of the 11 o'clock series and
will include a treatment of all the
powers, the announcement states.
The success oi Dr. Hannah's lec-
tures during the last two sesions has
been so remarkable that he was se-
cured this year for more lectures than
he has given, Dr. Phelan says.
Letzeiser Medals And Butte Prize To
Be Awarded At Commencement
Exercise., Other Winners
Eleven prizes and medals will he
awarded to the honor students of the
university this morning following the
annual commencement exercises in
Among the medals to be awarded
are the gold, silver and bronze Let-
zeiser medals to the three hoys and
three girls ranking highest in the
choice expressed at the annual spring
election. Claud Monnet, and Hesler
Wyand and Robert Gordon are the
winners of the gold, silver and bronze
medals rehpectively among the boys.
Fannie Inez Bell, Grace Deatherage
and Callie'Wiest will receive the me-
dals for the girls.
Angus Woodford will get the $25
Butte prize for winning first place in
the debate-tryouts in March.
The Barbour Pharmacy prize and
the Browne award in pharmacy will
not be announced until the time for
presenting. The Ante
More than 1700 students will be
enrolled in the summer session pros-
pects indicate, Errett R. Newby, Reg-
istrar, stated yesterday. The num-
ber of enrollment'- has already
exceeded expectations and with today
and tomorrow set aside to take care
of the late arrivals, the number is
expected to go well above 1700.
Many New Students.
Mr. Newby states that approxi-
mately thirty-five per cent of the
students are entering the university
for the first time. As usual the
courses in education are the most im-
portant but the lecture courses are also
popular, according to the enrollments
blanks that have been turned. The
men and women students arc about
evenly divided which is a slightly
larger percentage of women than were
here during the winter session.
Today will be the last day for en-
rolling unless the number of reg-
istrants is such that the work cannot
be finished, Mr. Newby says. If it is
necessary, the period will be ex-
tended so as to include Wednesday
before the late enrollment fee of
$2.00 is addd.
The three hour courses are proving
to he a reason oi much difficulty i.i
getting in the eight hour courses.
Owing to the rule that eight hours,
will a lecture course of one hour, shall
be the limit the student is having
trouble arranging his course to meet
the requirement. However, the two
hour courses are such that most of
the enrollment will be saisfacory.
