The prospects for the University gymnastic team this year seem unusually good. A squad of twenty-five men, one of the largest on record, has been practising four times a week for three weeks. Seven of last year's team--Captain M. F. Gates '15, H. F. Ballantine '15, W. Campbell '16, S. Hall '16, R. G. McPhail '15, R. G. Nathan '16, and P. M. Symonds '15--are back again this year, and with A. B. Bruce '15, and M. Reynolds '15, who were on the squad last year, but ineligible to participate in the meets, and two of last year's Freshmen, D. Campbell '17 and R. L. Dodge '17, form an excellent nucleus around which to build.
The season's interests include an invitation interscholastic meet to be given in Cambridge on March 13. Twenty-five schools have been invited to participate.
