Students From 43 Nations in All Parts of World Give University Cosmopolitan Character--China Leads with 39

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The astonishingly cosmopolitan character of the University was shown by figures given out yesterday by M. A. Cheek '26, Foreign Student Secretary of Phillips Brooks Association.

Forty-three countries from every part of the world are now represented in the enrollment of the college and of the graduate schools in Cambridge. Men have come to Harvard to study from Guatemala and Ceylon, from Czecho-Slovakia and Siam.

China has the largest group, with 39 students. Canada is second with 33. The remaining countries are represented in smaller numbers. There are 12 students from Japan, ten from Russia and ten from England. There are eight Cubans, five Mexicans, and six East Indians.

Hardly a nation in the world is not represented by at least one student. In addition to nearly all the countries of Europe and America, the list includes British South Africa, the Barbadoes, Trinidad, New Zealand, India, Ceylon, Syria, Siam, Czecho-Slovakia and Asia Minor.

During the coming week the Cosmopolitan club will be organized for the benefit of students from these countries. At the club room, which will be in Phillips Brooks House, newspapers from many countries will be kept on file and frequent teas, lectures, and entertainments will be given.

Last year the club's membership represented but 19 nationalities. This year there will no doubt be a far greater representation from the 43 foreign national groups now at Harvard.
