"Students are allowed to put in as much time in the gymnasium or on the athletic grounds as good health and development require. The statistics show that they average about one-half hour per day in vigorous exercise. We find no student whose average record exceeds one hour per day of actual work. 3
We wish all the work to be looked upon as volunteer rather than as required. And it is a fact that most of the students appreciate the value of several hours' exercise per week to such an intelligent degree as to allow them to lose sight of the fact that there is a Faculty requirement. The students do at least one third more work than the Faculty requires.
Such rules as are necessary to prevent loafing and undue expenditure of time in the gymnasium, as well as the interfering of one student with the welfare of others, are enforced by the Faculty. --First Annual Report of the Department of Physical Education, 1894.
