Indoor gymnasium: Moving beyond Indian clubs:
President Arthur J. Roberts: A committee of the Trustees has just been appointed to plan a campaign for securing money to build a new gymnasium. The present gymnasium dates from the days when students were satisfied with a place to use Indian clubs and perhaps bowl. Nowadays students demand what is really an indoor field where they can practice sports and games. Our students feel that they are at a great disadvantage in being obliged to compete with colleges where gymnasium facilities are so much superior to ours.
