New Obstacle Races
(Continued from page six)
is a decided improvement of phy
sical development.
The American boy, stated Dean
Leighton, is net normally inter
ested' in an activity or sport that
requires vigorous physical out
put, but now that the atmos
phere is charged with the idea of
fitting oneself for a strenuous
military career, the idea of con
ditioning the body, physically,
has caught on, and the boys are
not only interested in this com
paratively strenuous physical
program, but are doing well in
every class that is being taught.
Military Emphasis
More emphasis is going to be
placed, however, in the latter
part of winter term, and the be
ginning of spring term, on mili
tary physical fitness, in that an
outside obstacle course, placed
on the outside activity field, and
similar to those obstacle courses
that are employed by the military
program, will be installed for the
use of all students in physical
education classes. A regular class
will not be held for the use of
this obstacle course alone, but
rather will be used as a scheme
to see if the student can make
the course, unimpaired.
There is one obstacle course
employed at present in the unfin
ished sited by the physical educa
tion school, with all the obsta
cles one might find on any mili
tary field. The obstacles com
prise hurdles, benches, ropes,
walls, and numerous other
“tonghies” that the hoys encoun
This new obstacle course that
will go into use the latter part of
winter term, will have 12 major
obstacles, and will be just a tiny
bit tougher than the course used
by the military people.
