This institution believes that careful attention should be
given to the development of physical manhood and womanhood
as well as to the intellectual and spiritual development. It is
the purpose of the college to stimulate an interest in wholesome
athletics, athletics that will afford an opportunity for healthful
exercise, train the mind, and elevate the morals of those participating.
Every possible precaution is taken to protect all college
athletics from any taint of professionalism.
While the college engages in inter-collegiate contests, the
policy of developing highly specialized inter-collegiate teams is
subordinated to that of providing suitable exercise for all students.
The following branches of organized athletics are offered:
Tennis, baseball, basketball, football, volley ball, cross
country running, track and field sports, with inter-collegiate,
inter-class, and inter-society contests.
For those who do not wish to take part in athletic games
other suitable forms of physical training will be provided.
CLASS AND SOCIETY CONTESTS.
During the school year there will be held athletic contests
between classes and societies. Before each final contest a series
of preliminaries will be conducted. The main purpose of these
contests will be to give opportunity for the participation of more
students in athletics than would be possible otherwise.

2. The Academy classes may select their class teams in the
following manner: One team from the first and fourth year

of the athletic committee.
