Eighty trades, professions, and avoca-
tions are followed by the fathers of
Michigan students. Only 3,570 stu-
dents answered the optional question
of their fathers' occupation, but AReg-
istrar A. G. Hall states that the per-
centages would be little altered if sta-
tistics had been obtained from the
whole student body.
The sons of the farmers head the
list, with a total of 669. The super-
abundance of the sons of the plowed
f1eld, is accounted for in the fact that
a greater pqrtion of Michigan's student
body is drawn from the great agricul-
tural states of the west. The mer-
chants stand second in having 527 rep-
resentative sons on the Ann Arbor
campus. Mechanics' sons to the
number of 244, are enrolled in the
university and they have a plurality
of 26 over the offsprings of the pro-
pounders of the law. The manufac-
turars stand fourth with 226. After
the sons of the lawyers, come those of
clerks and salesmen, who total 203.
The fathers of 126 students are en-
gaged in public service, both national
and civic. There are physicians' sons
to the aggregate of 123 on the cam-
pus of the international state uni-
versity, and clergymen's sons to the
number of 116, help to make up the
cosmopolitan body which attends the
classes oil the University of Michigan.
In rapid succession, follow the con-
tractors, ivth 114 and the dealers in
real estaae with only one less.
The first of occupations below the
century 'mark, in number of sons at
Michigan are those of railway em-
ployees and teachers, who are both
represented by 95. Then come the
sons and daughters of the bankers
who number 78. The dealers in tim-
ber, both in the lumbering stage, and
in the finished product, have 67 sons
as students on the campus. The phar-
macists, civil engineers and insurance
men are closely bunched in the long
and variegated list, with 42, 41, and
40, offsprings respectively. Then fol-
low thea sons of the dentists wtih 28
dealers in produce with 27 and labor-
ers and miners with 26 each. The
hotel men number only on less, and
lead the brokers by an even half doz-
From here on, are represented oc-
cupatians of every type and charac-
ter. Among the most prominent o'
the professional vocations are adver-
tising men, architects, marine an
electrical engineers, journalists, pho-
tographers, authors, engravers, illus-
trators, lecturers, and missionaries
The undertakers were also mentioned
among the professional men, as hav-
ing sons at Michigan.
The fathers of ten Michigan students
are members of the United States ar-
my and navy; twelve of them sit upon
the judicial bench; three of them rep-
resent the people of the United States
in Congress and two occupy the gu-
bernatorial chair. A single sheriff's
son is pursuing studies at the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
Under the caption of personal ser-
vices are mentioned barbers to the
number of eight,- hotel chefs, and pi-
ano tuners to the total of two. The
fathers of seven students are engaged
in the extraction of oil and natural
gas from the earth; five are estimators
of timber, six are florists and one is
a fisherman.
Among the manufacturers come the
chemists with six, the creamerymen
with two less, printers with 13 and

That every member of the fresh li1
