summer months, when the student
population is sharply reduced.
The city has three hotels ac-
cording to the Chamber of Comb
merce. It has 71 restaurants, ac-
cording to the telephone directory
-better than one restaurant per
1,000 people. Despite this, the say-
ing that "There's always room for
another restaurant" still goes.
Students Many
This, of course, is because of the
large student population which
also explains the fact that there
are 20 Gleaning establishments
and 47 clothing stores in the city
-also- large numbers for a city
of 62,000.
Ann Arbor is &ix years younger
than the University - the city,
was founded in 1823, the Univer-
sity in 1817 in Detroit.
Ann Arbor was named for the
wives of two ofdthe city's founders.j
Ann Allen and Ann Rumsey, soj
the story goes, discovered a wild'
grape arbor on the banks of Allen
Creek, named for John Allen,
Ann's husband. They spent much
of their time there together, and
the place became known as Ann's
Arbor.,
'S' Dropped
The settlement which Allen and
Blisha Rumsey had helped to
found soon took this name as its
own. The "s" was dropped when:
the town was recorded in Detroit
in 1824, and Ann Arbor it has been
ever since.
The University was moved to
its present location in 1837, and
has continued to' grow with the
city since then. At present the
mayor of Ann Arbor is Prof. Sam-
uel J. Eldersveld of the political
science department.
Recently the University pub-
lished a small pamphlet emphasiz-
ing the longtime good relations
between the city and the Univer-
sity.

University Health Service is a
miniature hospital.
Although the work of the serv-
ice is largely that of a clinic, it
health safety for students and
seeks to promote health educa-
also gives attention to general
tion.
Health Service is centrally lo-
cated on campus to serve the roue
tine medical needs of the student.
Its staff, comp6sed of doctors
from University Hospital, treats
students' routine needs.
The service, open to students
only, requires that each student
in the University take a physical
examination. The student may
have his examination taken by
the- physician of his choice at
home.
Vaccinations Needed
Students must be vaccinated for
smallpox. Students not having
been vaccinated in three years re-
ceive shots at Health Service. The
entering student is also given a
chest x-ray to detect possible tu-
berculosis.
Every student in the University
has his own medical folder. More
than 1,000,000 of them have been
on file since 1913.
All students taking four or
more hours of credit are entitled
to Health Service privileges. Those
taking less than four hours may
receive these services at a nominal
fee,
Advantages of Health Service
include the free x-ray examina-
tion, advice and assistance in
health problems, 15 days of gen-
eral hospitalization during the se-
mester for $17 a day (for urgent
condlitions only), surgeon's fees
for acute conditions, simple drugs
and dressings and ambulance fees
in emergencies.
Parents Notified
Reports to parents are made of
students contracting serious ill-
nesses, regardless of student age.
Health Service also houses an
Infirmary in the same building.
Office hours correspond to
classes. Appointments with physi-
cians are given for special cases
only. However, physicians are on
