Many hazards await Rhodes Schol-
ars upon their arrival at Oxford
University. Not only is the educa-
tional system different but heating
facilities, climate, food and many
other obstacles confront them.
At present several University stu-
(dents are awaiting the decision of
the Rhodes Scholarship committee.
,Since their inception of these schol-
arships in 1904, 12 Michigan men
have received these coveted awards.
In addition four members of the fac-
ulty were at one time Rhodes Schol-
ars: Prof. Hessel E. Yntema of the
Law School, Prof. Arthur Smithies
of the economics department, Prof.
John P. Dawson of the Law School
and Allan Seager of the English de-
Founded in 1904 as a result of the
legacy left by Cecil John Rhodes, fa-
mous English colonial leader, the
awards have been providing a large
number of students in the United
States, the British dominions and
Germany two to three years study at
the great English university.
Out of a $40,000,000 legacy, $250,-
000 was taken annually to provide
scholarships to Oxford for deserving
men. These were divided among the
United States, British dominions and
Germany. During the World War,
however, the German scholarships
wereddiscontinued, only to be re-
sumed or. a greatly reduced scale
after the Armistice.
Rhode's purpose was to develop
men in all-around interests who
would eventually go into public serv-
ice, thru furthering amicable rela-
tions between the countries con-
cerned. But statistics have shown
that the plan has failed to produce
any national political leaders, the
majority instead showing a marked
tendency toward academic and pro-
fessional work. The original stipula-
tion called for men who were pro-
ficientsin athletics as well as in their
studies for Rohdes did not want
'bookworms." But this has gradually
changed until at present scholastic,
ability is the chief requisite. Today
the qualities considered in making
selections are (1) literary and schol-
astic ability and attainments, (2)
qualities of manhood, truth, courage,
devotion to duty, sympathy, kindli-
ness, unselfishness and fellowship,
(3)exhibition of moral force of char-
acter and of instincts to lead and to
take an interest in his schoolmates
and (4) physical vigor as shown by
interest in outdoor sports or in other
Up intil 1929, twomen from each
state were sent to Oxford but at thA
aforementioned date the basic sys-

all fairness sparsely populated states
like Nevada or Arizona should not
receive as great a representation as

75,000 Students Included
In Statistics Containing
Data On Student Illness
Lying neatly indexed in the Health
Services files are the complete medi-
cal records of every one of the 75,-'
000 students who have attended the
University si e 1919. Only the fold-
ers of the 15,000 students who are in
present attendance are kept in the
active files in the outer office, while
the others are -stored in two sizeable
storerooms filling the shelves, run-
ning from floor to ceiling.
Included in each folder is the stu-
dent's picture, his health background,
the findings 6f his freshman exam-
ination, and the detailed notations of
his various medical treatments at
the Health Service. At the end of
each year the whole filing system is
rearranged. The' graduates and
those who have left school are weed-
ed out. All students ar given a rela-
tive health rating which governs
their campus activities and if the
Health Service wishes to see a stu-
dent a flag is affixed to his card, a
blue flag for one month, a red flag
for six months, and 'a green flag for
a year.
These files, since they contain such
complete data on so large a number
of individuals, are a very valuable
source of statistical information. A
separate file is kept of all students
who have ever had tuberculosis and
an exhaustive tabulation has been
made on the prevalence of the various
functional diseases, childhood, ill-
nesses, allergies, and other disord-
ers. A careful check is made of all
deaths of students on record and
when this division of the file be-
conies fairly large, a study will be
undertaken on the causes of death.
Insurance companies and other or-
ganizations often request information
from the Health Service records but

panied by the written consent of the
