A. B. FOLGER ELECTED PRES
IDENT OF CLASS OF 1912
REMARKABLE FRESHMAN CLASS
Dr. Lawson reports that the results
of the physical examination of the
fresmen show that they are the best
developed class physically that has
ever entered the University, at least
since Dr. Lawson was Physical Direc
tor, which is for the past six years.
Dr. Lawson said the class was by far
in better physical condition than any
he had ever seen. He said that fully
95 per cent of the members of the class
were men strong men in every sense
of the word. One reason for this won
derful development is the advanced
average age of the class, which is a
good deal over nineteen years. This
is a substantial increase over last year
and may be doubtless accounted for,
at least in part, by the advanced en
trance requirment of the Uniuersity.
Dr. Lawson remarked that the schol
arly attainments of the class ought to
be high, according to the axiom of the
sound mind and the sound body, if the
mental condition of the class might be
judged at all from the physical. There
is one freshman on the hill with a
lung capacity registering 380. Dr.
Venable evoked great applause in
chapel by declaring that a man with
a wind capacity like that ought to use
it in the service of the University.
Date of Junior Week To Be Changed
If Agreeable With the
One of the smoothest class elections
this year was pulled off Thursday
night when the Junior class elected to
office the men who should guide the
fortunes of 1912 during the coming
year. The meeting was harmonious
throughout and a wholesome unani
mous goodwill was shown toward all
who were elected.
The meeting was called to order by
retiring president F. P. Barker, who
in a few well-chosen words, told of the
work of the class during the past year,
ang gracefully turned over the admin
istration to new hands.
Mr. C.'B. Ruffin presented the ques
of the Yackety Yack to the class and
asked that the matter be taken up at
once. After some discussion, the class
voted that the finance committee be
instructed to collect unpaid assess'
ments and that the class be assessed
for the balance.
The election of officers was then de
clared in order and many speeches
were maee, varying in length from Cli-
nard's simple statement that he "had a
manin mind" which man, however wa
not in college, to the longer oratorical
effort t Johnston when he nominated
Armstrong. The following- men we

A committee composed of Pittman,
Graham, and Burgess was appointed
to look into the matter of class pins.
The president appointed Doub, Wins
ton, and Teague on the new finance
Mr. F. P. Barker brought up the
question of Junior Week and acquaint
ed the class with the fact that the
baseball team would be away at the
time of Junior festivities. It was im
possible for the manager to arrange
other dates, consequently there was
a conflict. A motion was passed that
the question of the date be taken up
with the faculty and that a committee
be appointed for that purpose.
All the business being transacted,
the president declared the meeting ad
journed. With songs and yells for its
new leader and for 1912, the crowd
disbanded, conscious that a new mile
post in class history had been" passed,
and that but one more remained.

, COMMITTEES APPOINTED AND
PLANS MADE FOR THE YEAR
A New Play Is To Be Selected and
the College Actors Will Have
a Chance To Compete .
The Dramatic Club held its first
meeting of the year Wednesday night,
for the purpose af bringing the mem
bers together and outlining the work
for the coming session. Prospects are
bright for a successful year. Profes
sor George M. McKie will be the Di
rector of the club this year. A com
mittee was appointed by President
Henry Smith to draw up a constitution
and by-laws for the club, organizing it
upon a more substantial basis than it
has formerly rested on. A committee
was also appoined to confer with Pro
fessor McKie in regard to the selecting
of a new play. There had been some
talk of rejuvenating the play given
last commencement, "London Assur
ance", and taking it out upon a trip
it will be recalled what a success this
play proved at the performances last
spring. It was decided, however, that
it would be better to begin work as
soon as possible on an entirely new
production. The Dramactic Club was
most successful last year, being recog
nized as an integral part of college
life. Altogether, over thirty men tried
for parts in the last play. It is hoped
that a still greater number will present
themselves as candidates for. member
ship in the Club this fall.
