The about 3,850 students attending the Summer School in 1959 will be socially treated to all the benefits of a three ring circus and some of the exclusivity of Mrs. Vanderbilt's legendary "400."

This Tuesday, however, the famed Schneider's Band will serenade the happy few from the steps of Widener Library—on the Tuesdays following, through August 4, the Union will bow to the music and dancing of the Westland.
