Would Have Training Begin In Grades
and Continue Through
College Years.
Systems of .gymnastic exercises be-
ginning in grammar school and con-
tinuing through high school and the
four years of college were recommend-
ed by Dr. George A. May, in view of
the fact that less than 50% of our
male population between the ages of
1S and 45 are fit for military service.
This recommendation was made dur-
ing the lecture given by Dr. May on
"Growth and Development" yesterday
in the science auditorium.
That many men do not realize the
importance of physical exercise was
brought out in the statement of Dr.
.May's regarding men who try out for
teams. When a man loses' out for
a team he loses all desire for exercise'
and lets his body go. Health is the
important thing in all exercise and
the man who takes his exercise with
this end in view gains more benefit
than the man who merely takes part
in games for the honor.

Ride Upon Strav
To Attend Concert
The lights were bright along the
street and people were hurrying into
the doors of the great auditorium, for
it was Wednesday night. and the week-
ly summer concert was soon to begin.
Then, in the midst of the cold beauty
of the noiselessly gliding automobiles,
came a vehicle that seemed strangely
out of place in such surroundings:
an old dirt wagon, piled high with
clean straw, on top of which were
perched many highly polished pickan-
innies. faces beaming and well curried
hair standing almost on end, all hap-
pily unconscious of any incongruity in
their appearance.
. The dirt wagon came to a stand-
still, and a big negro alighted and
lifted out three little girls, much
starched as to skirts and very perky
as to hair ribbons. Their black faces
were covered with broad smiles of
anticipation as they said goodbye and
turned toward the auditorium. Far-
ther up the street one man said to
another, "Well, shall it be the con-
cert or the movies?" And they went
to the movies.

Sept. 19, Two WeeksBefore
Season Opens
Thirty-four invitation for prelim-

ffrospective members of this fall's grid-
iron squad. The Maize and Blue hord-
es will foregather on Ferry Field for
the first time Tuesday, September 19,
just 15 days before the opening game
with Marietta. The list is largely
made up of veterans and all-freh men
with a sprinkling of reserves and class
league stars.
Ineligibility has hit the squad hard,
class-room scrimmages having already
put four promising candidates hors de
gridiron and several more being on
the doubtful list. Roy Johnson.

quarterback on the 1914 fresh team,
Snyder, plunging fullback on last

edicts from the Powets That Be.
"Wallie" Nieman, "Pat" Smith, and
"Fritz" Rehor, all "M" men, are in
summer school trying to work off their
deficiencies. Their eligibility in the
fall depends on the marks they get
this summer.
