Some interesting figures may be
noted in the following comparison
of statistics between the freshmen at
State and those at Yale, taken soon
after college opened in September.
They show that the average age in
our own freshman class is 20 years,
2.5 months; the average height is
6 feet, 7.5 inches; the average
weight, 134.8 pounds; chest expan
sion, 2 inches. Forty nine per cent
of the class use tobacco. At Yale,
statistics of 350 freshmen show
the average age to be 18 years, 11.3
months; height 6.8 inches. Thirty
three per cent wear glasses; only 18
per cent can swim, and forty-four
per cent use tobacco.
At the University of Michigan an
organization has recently been ef
fected to superintend class elections
and investigate graft on the part of
the students at the head of college
publications or special functions. All
departments of the college elected
members of the body which is to be
called the Senior Council.
