It has been definitely announced that four new dormitories and a new School of Architecture will be erected in the near future at Princeton. If present plans are followed, foundations for the dormitories will be laid in the spring. The actual construction of the School of Architecture will be begun shortly after.
The four new dormitories will take care of 400 men, bringing the total of the number of students on the campus up to 1700. It is improbable that any other dormitories will be built for a few years.
The sites for the proposed dwellings will be on the tract between Hill Dormitory and the Pennsylvania station, running along University Place. One of these dormitories, housing 170 men, will be the largest on the campus. All of them will be built in the collegiate type of Gothic architecture similar to the buildings of Oxford and Cambridge.
Alan Lamplough Becket of East Orange, New Jersey, was elected captain of the Williams hockey team for the 1921-1922 season at a meeting of the letter men held recently. Becket has been a member of the hockey team for the past two years, and during the season just past, starred in practically every game, besides being the highest individual scorer for the season.
In response to the call for candidates 62 men reported for baseball at Williams recently when, under the direction of Coach Jack Coombs and Captain Finn, baseball practice was begun in earnest. The squad is one of the largest which has reported in recent years and exactly equals that of last year.
As the team has less experienced material this year than usual, special efforts will be made to develop new men. Among last year's veterans are Holmes and Patton, pitchers, and Captain Finn for the catching position with R. W. Smith as a substitute. Hoyt and Ward are also available for the infield. There is some promising material among the freshmen, and further additions to the squad are expected at the close of the basketball season on March 12.
