The average freshman at the City College of New York, which has a Jewish registration of about eighty per cent, is considerably more intelligent than 40,299 freshmen in 203 different colleges throughout the United States if the intelligence tests prepared by the American Council on Education really measure intelligence.

The examination was given to 1,514 freshmen by the Council and the report submitted to President Frederick B. Robinson of City College stated that the average score for freshmen throughout the country is 155, while that for the City College freshmen is 216.
