Latest reports on the 1917 summer
session enrollment indicate that the
total falls short of last year's record
by 22 per cent. The final count late yes-
terday resulted in an enrolments of
1403 as compared with a total of 1717
at the same time in 1916.
When compared with other univer-
sities of the middle west, Michigan's
decrease, due in all probability to the
war, is not exceptionally low and is
on the par. Wisconsin with an enroll-
ment of some 3100 last year shows a
decrease of 28 per cent this summer,
while Indiana, with an enrollment of
1111 last year dropped to 920. a fall-
ing-off of 17 per cent.
Registration Normal Up to Last
Up to the last few days, registration
in the University appeared to be nor-
nmal and predictions, in general, seens-
ed to point to the fact that this year's
total number of summer session stu-
dents would not be much smaller than
during other years when times were
normal. The addition of the military
courses to the regular curriculum,
however, served considerably in keep-
ing the enrollment from showing a
greater loss. Similar courses have
been added to the regular schedue in
nearly' all the schools of the country
that have summer sessions.
Although a considerable number of
students will enroll in the University
from time to time, that number being
nearly 90 last year, the total is not re-
garded as a poor showing considering
all the circumstances. Farming and
various other branches of military
service have doubtless been influen-
tial in cutting down the registration.
Law Department Loses Most
As figures now stand, the law de-
'artment shows the biggest deer
which is followed by the literary and
graduate depadtments. The engineer-
ing, medical and pharmacy depart-
ments all show small gains.
The results as compared with last
year's are as follows:
1917 1916
Literary ............... 560 797
Engineering...........369 340
Medical..............170 166
Law .................. 82 166
Pharmacy ............. 25 21
Graduate .............. 197 227
Total ................1403 1717
Dean of Medical Department Gives
Evidence in Poisoning Case
Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, dean of the
medical school, testified on the Fourth
of July for the prosecution in the case
of the state of Connecticut against
Mrs. Amy E. Archer-Gilligan. Dr.
Vaughan stated that in his opinion the
four inmates of the home for elderly
people conducted by Mrs. Gilligan,
who is charged with poisoning Frank-
lin R. Andrews, died from poison.
He also testified that the presence of
more poison in the lungs of the dead
man. than in the liver, was unusual
in cases of poisoning administered be-
fore death.
