GREATEST D)EATH RATE
AMONG, NEW RECRUITS
STATISTICS COLLECTED BY DEANI
VAUGHAN ON IN-
Statistics, that are being collected
by Dean Victor C. Vaughan and Cap-
tain George T. Palmer show that the
greatest death rate in the camps, due
to influenza, was among the unsea-
In a certain camp where only 10 per
cent of the total encampment was
made of recruits more than 30 per
cent of the deaths were found to be
among these men. The reason for this
may be attributed to several causes,
states Dean Vaughan.
In the first place the camps which
had a low death rate last fall had at-
tacks of the epidemic although mild
ones, during the preceding spring. The
same was true of many of the cities
having low death rates. Grand Rap-
ids and Toledo were among the cities
having the least increase over the
normal death rate.
Of course every camp which had the
epidemic in the spring was not im-
mune from it in the following fall due
to the fact that many of the troops
which had been there at the time of
the first epidemic had been sent over-
seas and, since it is the people that
are not susceptible, not the locality,
the new, troops that moved in were just
as hard hit as though there had been
Regulars Less Liable
Another factor which in Dean
Vaughan's opinion enters into consid-
elation is the fact that the recruit,
in the majority of cases did not know
how to take care of himself and hence
contracted the influenza and pneumo-
nia. The regulars and the men who
had been in the camps for some time
knew, on the other hand, how to keep
themselves in a healthy condition and
did not get the disease.
Dean Vaughan interprets these facts
as a strong argument for universal
military training of some sort and said
that he felt that a period of camp
training even though it be only for a
period of three months would teach
the average man to take care of him-
self and thus decrease the amount of
deaths through disease. He feels that
three months is the shortest period of
time that would be of practical value.
A plan of raising a fund for schol-
arships for Hindu students who come
to the University has been submitted
to President Harry B. Hutchins by
Nilkant R. Chavre, a special engineer
in the University.
Chavre has outlined his project in a
letter to President Hutchins, and has
asked his permission to raise a fund,
from the interest of which the schol-
arships will be given. The suggested
plan states that the money would be
collected from the people of the state
and country by an Oriental scholar-
ship committee, which would direct
the campaign. Memberships would be
sold on the share basis, each share to
cost one cent a day, and as many
shares as desired can be bought.
period. After the required amount of
' money is secured the scholarship com-
mittee of Ann Arbor would alliliate
itself with a committee in Bombay, In-
dia, which was lately organized. The
work of the Bombay committee would
then consider the applications for
scholarships, the preference to be giv-
en to women students of India.
Ten scholarships are at present of-
fered by the University for which wom-
en students from India are eligible.
The fund making these scholarships
possible, was given in 1917 by Mr.
Levi L. Barbour, a forler regent of
