DR. MAY AND LIEUT. MULLEN
DEVISE SYSTEM OF
REAL ME RIT
Few students at the University real-
ize that the system of physical train-
ing in connection with the military
work, as devised by physical director
George A. May and Lieut. George C.
Mullen, commandant of the cadets, is
one of the most, if not the most, highly
perfected system outside the regular
United States military training
schools.
Since the entrance of this country
into the war the gymnasium authori-
ties have come to realize that our
young men are physically unfit for
the strenuous trench life into which
many of them have already entered
and others are expecting to enter in a
short time.
To make into .a strong, sturdy race
the men upon whom so much depe'nds
at this time, no institutions nor or-
ganizations have done quite so much
as the universities of the country. In
almost every school in the country
some system of drill combined with
athletics has been installed and al-
ready men with such a training have
shown their superiority in the various
branches of the service into which
they have entered.
Exercise Makes Soldier Proficient
Because the man who vaults over
the top or delivers the decisive upper-
cut in the bayonet charge will be a
much mnre dangerous enemy if he
has had training in the various sports
and exercises, the scheme which has.
been installed has been worked out
with the utmost care and considera-
tion, and every man in each company
is given all- kinds of exercise for dif-
ferent parts of the body.
Inter-company meets have been
held and great interest has been
shown by the cadets. Almost any af-
ternoon one may find 300 or 400 men
at Waterman gymnasium, and con-
trary to past years, all are busy, some
being timed in the rope climbing'
matches, others running off an inter-
company relay race, others may be
seen on the parallel or horizontal
bars.
"Since the soldier and sailor are
the most highly prized units in ex-
istance today, it is most important
that they be made proficient," Dr. May
stated yesterday. "The greatest va-
riety of physical exercises," he con-
tinued, "should be given the fighting
man, because modern warfare is
largely a test of strength and endur-
ance."
Boxing and Wrestling Next
After the beginning of the second
semester boxing anda wrestling will
be taken up. Games also will be intro-
duced. Already a basketball schedule
has been made out and 12 teams are
practicing for the regular games.
Meets will be held during the course
of the second semester. These will
be of two kinds, one a meet in which
every man in every company will ake
part, and the other will be for those
who specialize in certain events. The
events in these meets will be as fol-
lows: 50-yard dash; low hurdles;
shot-put; high-jump; mile run; one
lap relay (4-man team).
"That inter-class athletics would
have been a .failure this year there
is no doubt," Dr. May declared. "Men's
thoughts are on anything military,
and athletics in connection with mili-
tary training have proven an excel-
lent substitute for the inter-class
games."
Later in the year it is probable that
a huge" tug-of-war will be staged in
the gymnasium, and as soon as the
weather will permit the men to get
out of doors, other types of contests
will be added to the program.

Conference Fives
Getting Started
Real Strength of Big Ten Quintets
Still In Doubt as Season
Begins
Although it is too early to get a
very good line on the relative merits
of the Conference basketball teams,
some idea of their strength may now
be obtained.
Northwestern has a quintet of five
veterans, being the most fortunate
of the "Big Ten" aggregations in this
regard.
Wisconsin, usually at the top,
has fallen before them to the tune
of 33 to 17. Enlistment and gradu-
ation have played havoc in the Badg-
er's ranks, as is also the case at Illin-

Minnesota, Chicago, and Ohio State
are all figured as contenders for the
title. Indiana is not showing any
marked strength and can hardly be
considered as a championship possi-
bility.
