Tech Wants Compulsory Sport For
Every Student as at Philips Exeter
While it is a fact that Tech High
School has done more than any other
educational activity to put and keep
Harrisburg on the maw, its ath
letic system does not satisfy the
men who are doing so much for
this enterpriseing school. They be
lieve that athletics should be com
pulsory as they are at Philips Exe
ter where this sort of democracy
has made the New England school
champion par excellence.
At Exeter success is due, in large
measure, to the inclusive and con
sistent system of physioal training
given the whole school.
Every boy, no matter how puny or
Inexpert lie may be, will lind pleas
ure and profit in some form of
athletics if an opportunity is offer
ed. To present this opportunity, a
largo and inviting equipment in
necessary, and in this respect Ex
eter is well endowed by nature, fol
lowed closely by the alumni.
The Plimton playing fields, a level
and well drained stretch of about
twenty-live acres on the school shore
of the Exeter river, furnish base
ball and football fields, board and
cinder running tracks, besides sev
enteen tennis courts, on which in
winter hockey rinks are construct
ed. On the river are two boat
houses, one of them a storage house
for canoes. On the other side of the
river lie the Plimpton fields be
yond, an immense stretch of 380
acres, with ninety acres suitable for
general athletic purposes, such as
golf, football practice, soccer and the
remainder of standing timber, for
the pursuit of woodcraft and cross
country running.
Resides this extensive outdoor
range, there is the Thompson gym
nasium, the gift of William B.
Thompson, of New York, class of
3 899, costing about 8250.000 and
situated on the west side of the
playing fields. This gymnasium is a
magnificent limestone structure,
consisting of a main section, .120
feet by 80, and two wings, contain
ing the swimming pool and rooms
for squash, boxing and fencing. The
academy's six rowing shells are
housed in the Marshall Newell boat

Boy Makes Choice
Each boy chooses at the beginning
of the school year a certain recrea
toin, which he must then pursue at
fixed hours at least four dayp in the
week; attendance is taken; are ab
sences, excused only for cause. The
sports so elected are football, base
ball, track, tennis, rowing or golf.
In the winter these yield to ice
hockey, basketball, indoor track,
wrestling, etc., or to regular ap
paratus work to the amount of four
hours a week. Besides all these,
however, Exeter's hills and river
furnish skating, coasting, skating and
At the head of the whole system is
the director of athletics, who is a
member of the faculty, assisted by
four paid experts in the different
branches of sport. Six members of
the faculty also serve as coaches of
the football, tennis, golf and shoot
ing teams and of the school crew.
The entirer school is organized as
a battalion for military training and
instruction given by an army officer.
Exeter's insistence that every boy |
take part, even a minor one, in some
form of academy athletics long ago
justified the system. That the bod- i
ies and manly qualites of the boys
developed is shown by the physical
examination made at the beginning
and at the end of each school year,
while it is no less certain that hab
its of responsibility are fostered hy
the insistence on precision in at
tendance and training.
Again an dagain the system brings
to light unsuspected prowess in some
branch of athletics which neither the
boy himself nor any one else had
realized. The fact that the ma
jority of the players on the various
teams have been developed in the
academy is sufficient proof, while
it is also characteristic of the suc
cess of the whole movement that
in the last twenty years more than
300 men who have been at Exeter
have had places on the football,
baseball and track teams of twenty
five or thirty different colleges, and,
over thirty of these have been cap

Battle Royal When the
Central High Girls
Meet Camp Hill
Central High school's quintet of
lassies will meet a strong team of
tossers from across the river on Fri
day night at Chestnut street hall.
The Camp Hill High school is the
school booked to play the Central
girls, and the game promises to be
one well worth seeing. The Camp
Hill bunch have been "cleaning up"
things at a great rate this season,
but the Central crew are not one bit
afraid of them, and will give them
a merry chase for honors on Fri
day niglit.
Although the team representing
Central this year have been playing
a litle out-of-luck, they are not
down-hearted in the least, and
mean to put their best efforts into
every game that remains on the
schedule. Coach Dave McConnell has
been putting them through some
fast work, and there is no reason
why they will not take the cross
river crowd into camp when they
niee tthem this week.
As an added attraction this week.
Prof. Bertram Saul, athletic adviser
at Central, has arranged to have the
Central Informals meet the Tech
High school scrubs. Two weeks ago
the Informals gave the Tech crew a
merry chase for the game, and there
is a mighty good chance that they
will hang up a victory for the school
(his time. An attractive dance pro
gram has been arranged to follow
the games.
Private Earl W. Knier, of Over

Kiwanis Club to Entertain j
Their Ladies This Evening 1
at Penn-Harris Ballroom
Members of the Harrisburg Ki
wanis Club, with their wives and
sweethearts, are planning for the
biggest night in the club's history
this evening when the Penn-Harris
ballroom will be the scene of the
annual ladies' dinner and dance.
Charles L. Schmidt is generalis
simo for the evening. He advised a
Telegraph reporter this morning
that the stunts to be pulled off will
be ear-splitting, soul-wrenching and
"awfully entertaining." Just what
these numbers on the program will
be, it is not announced, but Chair
man Smith didn't hesitate to say
that the entertainment committee
has a program which will "bring
you a grand and glorious feeling," to
quote his own words.
A feature of the evening will be
the singing of the Quality Four,
headed by J. Stewart Black, Ki
wanis pianist. This vocal organiza
tion pleased Kiwanians at a recent
club meeting, with their really ex
cellent singing.
The affair will open at 6.30 o'clock

Harrisburg is slow getting into
baseball. The rumor to-day is that
Reading will bust into the newly
organized International League, the
city having been recommended by
Arthur Irwin, now manager of the
Rochester Club. The franchise held
by Syracuse and later Hamilton,
Canada, is on the market and about
five cities are bidding for it. But
Irwin thinks Reading would have
a better chance of getting the berth
than any of the other cities, because
the circuit would be more compact
with a team here.
