At this time of the year the gymnasium is always filled to overflowing during the latter half of the afternoon, and there is therefore much crowding and inconveniencing of one another by those exercising. Of course it is impossible to help this, but still it can be in a great measure mitigated if everyone will only think a little less of his own comfort and have an eye to that of others. If each person on finishing a certain exercise will at once move off and give the next person a chance, everything will go right. At present there is a tendency on the part of some to monopolize certain pieces of apparatus for an excessively long time during the most crowded hours, while others, principally freshmen it is to be hoped, see fit to occupy the apparatus for resting places instead of for its legitimate purpose. Of course it is most likely that such things as these are due to thoughtlessness, and so for a time they may be excused, byt before long, every one who frequents the gymnasium should know by heart the unwritten code which governs its use. In particular no one should occupy any one piece of apparatus more than two or three minutes,-unless we except the chest weights, and in the intervals of exercise one should be careful not to interfere with others. Romping of any Kind should be discountenanced, which goes without saying, and it is apparently necessary for us to remind many to shut after them the doors between the main hall and the dressing rooms. But it is unnecessary to particularize further. A little regard on the part of each one for the rights of others coupled with a free use of courtesy will work the needed reform, and we desire to remind all those who use the gymnasium to exercise these qualities.
