yiAtf Ba . ■livOR many years the students of the M. A. C. have anticipated a field day; Jj but from year to year their fond ambitions have been shattered simply because the officers of the Athletic Association could not see enough athletic material in college to warrant the undertaking. The past few years have manifested to the college that there is an abundance of latent athletic force in the students, and all that is needed to turn it into active force is a general awakening and interest in sports. The officers of the Athletic Association of last year realized this fact, and went to work with a will. They spent much time and money in fitting up the gymnasium, they prepared an attractive pro- gramme of sport for both an indoor meet and a field day, and they succeeded, by hard work n carrying out the programme very successfully, and in creating the desired r ' boom " in Aggie ' s athleticsT? The Association also offered a beautiful banner to the class that should wki the largest number of points in the two meets. This banner is to be turned over from year to year to the winning class, the class having the privilege of placing its figures upon it and of possessing it until it is won by another class. The banner finally becomes the property of the class possessing it for three consecutive years. The trustees of the college having set apart May 17 for a field day, the students accordingly prepared for the events. No recitations were held, and the whole college gave itself up to sport. The real contest for the banner lay between the classes of ' 94 and ' 95. ' 94, having secured a lead of 31 points in the winter meets, had good reason to feel confident of success. ' 95 fought bravely for supremacy, but went into the contests with hearts saddened by the fact that their most popular man, their college athlete, lay upon his bed dangerously ill. ' 93 aspired not for honors, and ' 96 was content with only a few points. ' 94 came out victorious, securing 81 points. The average of the two meets gave ' 94 the first place, with 188 points and a percentage of 44.1; ' 95 secured 139 points, or 33.1 per cent; ' 93, 72 points, or 14.1 per cent; ' 96, 42 poin ts, or 8.7 per cent. At the close of the day ' s contests the banner was formally presented to the class of ' 94, who bore it in triumph to the college, and, after placing their figures upon it, hung it in the college reading room. 83
