Lafayette College : Some pages of its past, pictures of its present, and forecasts of its future . le aid in the development of theathletic teams, All students, unless for special reasons, are required atset times to exercise in the gymnasium under the directionof Dr. Updegrove, and while this class work is not directlyconnected with the work of the Athletic Association, itsvalue cannot be overestimated. In the gymnasium, exhibitions are given during theWinter, and in 1901, for the first time, basket-ball contestswere held against teams representing some of our leadingcolleges. The gymnasium is under the direct control of the Faculty.The Faculty has also assumed control of the work of theathletic associations in recent years. All schedules ofgames are submitted to it, and must have its approval. Ithas established strict eligibility rules to prevent unfairlyselected teams from playing in the name of Lafayette, andthrough its athletic committee keeps up a constant super-vision of the work of the teams. It insists that the workin the College classes shall not be interfered with by the. 63 work of the Association, and requires from all membersof all teams a formal permission from their parents orguardians before they can take part in any athletic contest.The wisdom of this policy is sufficiently proven by itsresults. The whole atmosphere of College life is given amore healthy tone. Nearly every student takes part insome form of athletic activity, and the College campusduring the hours for exercise (covered with class andVarsity teams), the tennis courts, the local golf club, the broad and beautiful Lehigh and Delaware Rivers thescenes of so many a rowing or swimming feat, add im-measurably to the attraction of the College, to the charmof Lovely Lafayette. 3 0112105682857
