This study was undertaken for the purpose of discovering any items in the records of the Department of Physical Education for Men (at the University of Iowa) which might be of significance in relation to scholastic attainment. The technique employed involved a comparison of the two extremes in scholastic standing among the freshman men of the College of Liberal Arts for the academic year 1925-26. The records of the 52 men receiving the highest grades and the 54 men receiving the lowest grades in the entire freshman class were considered.
