Figures made public by the Dean's office last week show the comparison of this year's enrollment of the Freshman Class with that of 1933. The 15 states in the National Scholarship area, including Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, California, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, and Louisiana, had in 1933 an enrollment of 103, or 10.5 per cent of the total of the Freshman class that entered that year, as compared to 176, or 19 per cent this year. The foreign countries and the states other than those in New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the National Scholarship area, showed a combined total of 44 in 1933, or 4.5 per cent of the enrollment in that class, as compared to 77, or 8.3 per cent, this year.

Mass. Leads in Numbers

Massachusetts leads all the states, with 367 in the Freshman class. Ranking next in numbers are New York, 165; Pennsylvania, 45; Illinois, 35; Connecticut, 29; New Jersey, 28; Ohio, 24; and California, 21.

States showing gains over last year are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virgina, and Wisconsin.

Of those states which have sent twenty or more successful candidates in each of the last two years, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Ohio show decreases this year; New York and New Jersey remain the same; Connecticut and Illinois have grown. California has jumped from 9 in the Freshman class four years ago to 14 last year and 21 this year. Rhode Island has doubled over last year, from 7 to 14. New Mexico has increased from one last year to 6 this year, and Washington from 6 to 10. Among the states which had no representation in the Freshman class last year are Oregon, which has 7 this year, Mississippi 2, and Utah 2.

Exeter Leads in Schools

Thirty-two schools sent five or more men apiece, in the present Freshman clase, the largest representations being from Exeter, 58; Boston Latin, 52; Milton, 42; Andover, 34; and St. Paul's, 25.
