PHYSICAL CULTURE FOR FRESHMEN

Class in General Athletics to Begin Regular Work After Christmas Recess.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Following the precedent started in 1909, a class in general athletics for Freshmen who are not candidates for any of the various teams will be started shortly after the Christmas recess. It will meet three times a week at 4.30 o'clock for about three months during the winter term. Instruction will be given in running, boxing, wrestling, fencing and swimming. P. Withington '09 will have general supervision of the work, conducting some of it personally. Coach Mann of the University swimming team will take charge of the swimming and the rest will be under the direction of the various instructors at the Gymnasium. The class is intended primarily for those who have had little training in athletics, its object being to promote all around physical development, rather than to prepare for any particular sport.
