President Seelye of Amherst says of compulsory exercise in the gymnasium: "By close statistics, carefully kept for twenty years, it appears that the health of an Amherst College Student is likely to grow better in each year of his college course. The average health of the sophomore class is better than that of the freshman, and of the junior better than that of the sophomore, and of the senior best of all. This average is shown to come from an improvement in the physical condition of the individual student, and not from the dropping out of the course of those who might be too weak to complete it.
