THE A CLUB.
Membership in the A Club is by election. Each year there
are elected a number of young men who have represented the college
in some activities.
No student will be eligible to any of these rewards who has
not been taking at least 12 hours in the College or three courses
in the Academy since the first of the school year in which the
contest is held. No graduate or person holding a certificate

that will cling to them through life and condition their future
failures and successes. Thus, as a college, we wish our government
to be such as shall develop self-government in our students,
for this is the ideal of all governments.
We give below some regulations which we expect each student
to respect. No student can be self-governed who does not
see that he keeps these regulations; the discipline committee will
be his governor.
The college life is that of a great family. The students and
teachers are bound together by mutual interests. The discipline is
