The Freshman class in general athletics will begin work today with a record enrolment. The number of men enrolled in the class totalled 105 yesterday as opposed to 53 last year at the corresponding time. Such an increase in the number of men who have signed up, together with the large attendance at the meeting held in Smith Halls Common Room, is indicative of the increased interest in the undertaking. The class may continue during the spring months.
The class has been divided into divisions for each of the sports and these divisions will meet this afternoon for instruction under their respective instructors. The wrestlers will report to Coach Anderson at the Hemenway Gymnasium. Mr. Ellery H. Clark '96, assistant graduate treasurer of athletics, will meet the swimmers at the subway waiting room, Harvard Square, or they may report directly to Coach Waters at the Cambridge Y. M. C. A. The fencing squad will report to Professor Leslabay in the fencing room of the Hemenway Gymnasium, and the boxing class will be divided into three divisions, each of which will be directed by one of the three boxing instructors, Coaches Foley, Walsh and O'Donnell.
The class will meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Requests for transfers from one sport to another should be made to Mr. Clark or Mr. Sullivan at the H. A. A.
