Five Religions Counted
THEY STAR IN THE JUNIOR GIRLS' PLAY
(By Thomas I. Adams)
Of the 7,000 foreign students esti-
mated to be enrolled in American
schools about 250 are registered in the
University of Michigan, the largest
number In any one state institution.
Of this number it is estimated by
Prof. J. A. 6. Hildner, chairman of the
board of advisers to foreign. students,
that 25 per cent are sent here by their
governments and have their expenses
paid by that government..
Taking Tchnical Courses
The 'great number of foreign, stu-
dents on the campus are enrolled in
technical or practical work, very few
taking the general courses. As Pro-
fessor Hildner put it, "They do not
come here to learn our ideas of life
but how ,we . make the world go
round." Nearly all of the students
frfm South Africa are enrolled in the
Dental school while the great num-
ber of Chinese are in Engineering
or some other piactical course. En-
gineering and political soience are
the departments in which most of
the Japanese are specializing. Only
three 0f the entire number of foreign
students registered in the University
are in the Law school.
It has been estimated by members
of the faculty that the number of for-
eign students that will be enrolled
in the University next year will go
as high as 600.
80 Countries Represented
In the foreign enrollment of the
University at present 30 different
countries are represented. From
China come 59 students, from South
Africa 32, Canada 27, Japan 27, Porto
Rico 11, Russia 5, Hawaii 6, Armenia
5, Mexico 5, the Philippines 15, Ar-
gentine 6, Holland 1, Chile 4, Poland

Peru 2, Brazil 4, Italy 3, France 1,
Spain 1, Nicaragua 2, Greece 2,. Ko-
rea 3, Jamaica 1, Cuba 1, Siam 3, Bo-
livia 3, Java 1.
This is the first year that there
have been any representatives from
Siam, Bolivia, or Java on the cam-
us, however four countries which
ere represented last year are not
this year. They are, Germany,
Egypt, Straight Settlements, and
It is also estimated that more than
five different religions are represent-
ed on the campus, among which are
Christianity, Confucianism, Moham-
medanism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
Oldest Cosmo. Club
The Michigan Cosmopolitan club is
one of the oldest organizations of its
kind in the country it being estab-
lished at the University in 1906. At
the same time three others were es-
tablished in other institutions. At
the present time there are two chap-
ters at Michigan. One for women
having a membership of 25 and the
other for men with a membership 'of
The next national convention of the
Cosmopolitan club which is to take
place in December of this year will
be held here. The next international
convention, scheduled for 1921 is to
be held in Montevideo, Uraguay. In
A gust of this year a preliminary in-
ternational convention is to be held
in AGeneva, Switzerland. A. M. El-

be Michigan's representative at this
To you, new Man of Michigan,
I'll write no stately ode,
For you're too much a students' man
To fancy a pedanst code.
You're human and you're free of mind,
Unbound by.dogma's chains;,
Your wisdom's of the better kind,
And youth still to you remains.
We toast, therefore, the coming day,
And you, the coming man;
Long be your life and long your stay
With us at old Michigan.

Motion pictures are not only enter-

among the students.

Approximately 4,000 positions in
campus activitie, are tilled by stu-
dents of the University, the work
varying all the way from the leading
positions on the campus to tryouts for
them, service on inrn ma' committees,
and competition in intramural ath-
Only an approximation is possible,
due to the large number of activities
and the impossiblity of securing ab-
solutely exact data, and the status of
certain branches of work, such as
membership in honorary and dramatic
societies and the like is hard to de-
However, approximately 4,000 posi-
tions are taken by students in work
at' the Union, on the publications,
class ogices and class committees, the
Varsity band, Glee and Mandolin
club, dramatic activities, such as Red
Feather and the Spotlight vaudeville,
the Y. M. C. A., competition for ath-
letic managerships, Student council,
oratory and debating, women's activ-
ities, Varsity rports, and intramural
Union activties probably claim the
time of the largest number of stu-
dents, it being esti'mated by officials
that 1,000 students will have been on
different committees by the end of
the year, only 25 per cent of which
will be duplications. -This includes
not only the officers, chairmen of the
standing committees, but those work-

Eighty musicians play for the Var-
sity band, and 120 students participate
in the activities of the Glee and Man-
dblin club. Dramatics take about 200
students. For the managerships of
the four Varsity sports, football, track,
baseball, and basketball, , is esti-
mated that 60 are competing.
Twenty on Council
The Student council has 20 mem-
bers, and tryouts for the'debating and
oratorical teams interests approxi-
mately 40. Women's activities in th
nature of the Junior advisors', class
games, and other sports take the time
of about 300, it is thought.
Only 425 of the students competed
for membership on the Varsity squads,
athletic officials say. Track had the
most with about 200, baseball came
next with about 100 tryouts, basket-
ball third with 65, and football last
with about 60.- This includes the en-
tire squad and tryouts, both for "the
Varsity and freshman elevens.
Intramural sports drew 1.000 stu-
dents, conductors of this . enterprise
say, which does not include the inter-
fraternity competition. About 300 stu-
dents entered in the departmental
football games, the same number is
expected for baseball, 118 were in
basketball, track will claim about 125,
hockey contests interested 125, and
swimming will attract about 50.
