EDITORS HERALD-CRIMSON:-The communication in your paper yesterday which suggests the formation of a canx club seems to me a very sensible one. As your correspondent says, there are a number of active canxists in college, and their interest and enjoyment will certainly be increased if the club be formed.
He has, however, left out of his enumeration of the benefits to be derived from canxing the one which seems to me the greatest of all, viz: the fact that it is the best possible exercise for the upper part of the body, developing the arms and the stomach and back muscles, and expanding the chest. Such exercise is all the more to be encouraged because its value is apt to be overlooked now, many people thinking that they have exercised as much as is necessary when they have taken a long walk.
I do not wish to undervalue the excellence of walking as an exercise, but it certainly does very little to develop the upper part of the body. I can only say that I will do anything to aid the formation of such a club which may be in my power. "GRETCHEN."
