SESSION OF 1918-'19
Rules Governing Athletics:
I. All athletic contests shall be made only with the consent and
under the supervision of the athletic director.
II. The athletic director may suspend from contests or from practice,
students guilty of disorderly conduct.
III. Profane or obscene language on the athletic field or in public
contests is forbidden.
IV. No student will be allowed to represent the school who has failed
to make a passing grade in at least four subjects.iuring the
Physical training is required of all students. This is a regular
course and honest work is as imperative in this as in any course given
in the college for good study is dependent on good health. Four hours
a week will be required.
Upon entering, each student is given thorough medical and physical
examinations. The result of these examinations together with the
recommendations of the examiner are recorded and work is assigned
to suit the needs of each individual.
We count ourselves fortunate in securing two of Abilene's leading
physicians, Dr. Glenn, and Dr. Leggett, to deliver a series of
lectures on hygiene and physical development. Students will be required
to take an examination on each lecture. This will be part of
the regular course in physical education and attendance will be compulsory.
Here’s what’s next.
