A. May, director of the gymnasium,
when pressed for information in re-
gard to the present state and future
prospects of physical education at
at Michigan.
"At the present every one of the
3300 lockers is taken and there is a
demand for 200 or 300 more but there
is no place to put them. The building
is being used to its full capacity. We
are trying to develop indoor physical
aptivity, but greater facilities for
every phase are needed for practical
work," declared Dr. May.
Running Full Blast
The director stated that the gym is
running full blast pretty nearly every
night through the year as basketball
practice now starts before the foot-
ball season is over. In the day time,
the closest co-operation is needed be-
tween the track coaches and the gym-
nasium director to divide the limited
floor areas between the 1500 freshmen;
taking required work and the indoor
training of highly specialized Varsity
athletic teams. This is becoming more
of an impediment to the; work in the
gymnasium all the time. .
"Michigan should be taking an ac-
tive part in every type of indoor' ac-
tivity like the other Conference'
schools-in such sports as wrestling,
boxing and swimming," declared Dr.
May. "While we now have a boxing
instructor, there is no one to teach
wrestling, and only a trifling amount;
of space can be given over to these
sports."
Freshman track and basketball, as
well as intramural competition, are'
being developed this year more than
ever before to provide feeders for the
Varsity teams next year, according to
Dr. May. Baseball practice indoors
has been seriously hampered because
of the limited floor area; there should
be enough room to form an indoor
diamond at least. Track men are now
confined to practice on board floor,
while with the present schedules,

meets taking place on dirt track.
Weather Stops Exercises
"Variable weather conditions make
it necessary for us to discontinue all
required physical exercise after the
spring recess when men should be
playing games in the open," stated
Dr. May. "This is necessary because
there are no dressing or bathing f a-
cilitiesrnear any large playing field.
The ideal location for a gym would be
near such a field where we could
have classes indoors or out as the
weather permitted. It is not my idea
to stop classes at spring recess, but
we have to now. I'm strong for games
-outdoor games. For physical exer-
cise, to do any material good, must
be consistent all the year round.
"The questfon arises whether there
should be separate units-two build-
ings-one for the training of Varsity
teams and the other for required
class work. This would solve the
problem of schedules, which are very
hard to apply in so large a University.
Such a building plan would entail
the expenditure of a vast sum of
money and should be, done along the
lines of greatest effectiveness.
"One plan would be to have a large
building where both could be ade-
quately taken care of for years to
come. This would solve the problem
of getting room enough to .seat large
- crowds of spectators." Dr. May now
believes that the best plan would be
to use Waterman gym for optional
and required work during the winter
period and to have a large exercise
hall on Ferry field, primarily for
Varsity teams, but with enough dress-
ing and bathing facilities to accom-
modate those who would shift in the
spring' to soccer, baseball, tennis and
other outdoor games rather than any
sort of class work.
Need Two Pools
Dr. May says that if swimming is
to perform the service that it should
in a university:-to teach every man
to swim--there should 'eventually be
two pools, one for the Varsity squad
and the other, a larger one, for the
student body. Harvard is at present
working out such a plan.

HOW TO BE HAPPY THOUGH MARRIED
"The Colonel's Lady and Mrs. O'Grady are sisters under their
skin," wrote Mr. Kipling.
And Mr. Canavan, having married for the second time, agreed
with him. His first wife was Irish and weighed about 250, and was
fond of tapping him with a poker. His second wife was wealthy
and blue-blooded and a snob.
But they both responded to the same treatment. See this delicious
comedy and learn the secret.
