Special provision has also been made for the physical training of women in the Sage College Gymnasium. The department has organized a system of exercises calculated to maintain and develop the physical strength of young women, and at the same time prevent any of the evils which might arise from exercises that are too violent or too long continued.

The exercises thus provided for are obligatory upon all members of the freshman or sophomore classes living in the college, subject to exceptions in particular cases by the Instructor in charge.

The building erected for the purposes of the GYMNASIUM AND ARMORY is situated at the extreme southern end of the campus. The main portion is of brick, one hundred and fifty feet long, sixty feet wide, and fifty feet high. The Annex joining the main hall on the south, is a three-storied building, having an area of seventy-four by eighty feet. The main building, with the exception of a small portion that is set apart for an office and a military store-room, is used for gymnastics and military drill. This contains the arms and equipment of the cadet corps, and a carefully selected supply of the most improved gymnastic apparatus and appliances for both individual and class work. The hall is heated by steam and lighted by electricity, and gives a clear space of floor room in the gymnasium of one hundred and thirty-five by sixty feet. The Annex contains the offices of the Department of Physical Culture, examination room, bath rooms, swimming bath, lavatory, closets, general repair room, baseball batting cage, crew practice room, and dressing-rooms which contain locker accommodations for about one thousand students.

Athletics.-The Cornell Athletic Association, composed of representatives from the trustees, faculty, and student athletic organizations, was incorporated in June, 1889. A standing committee on athletics, including the faculty members of the association, has also been appointed from the faculty. It is hoped that the coöperation of these various interests, and the existence of a permanent organization, may tend to produce a greater steadiness in the management of athletics, and permit of some continuity in the transmission of athletic methods and traditions.

The athletic ground called Percy Field, after the son of one of the donors, was secured and equipped for out-of-door sports by the joint gift of Mr. J. J. Hagerman and Mr. W. H. Sage. The field has an

area of nearly ten acres, including a quarter-mile cinder track, the Witherbee Memorial club-house, and a grand stand seating about twelve hundred persons, and is arranged for football, baseball, tennis, and general athletics.

The college year for 1899-1900 begins Monday, September 25, 1899, and closes Thursday, June 21, 1900, and is divided into three terms with two intermissions of about ten days each at Christmas and in the Spring. Students should present themselves promptly for registration on the dates fixed for that purpose in the calendar. Permits for late registration will be granted only for the most urgent reasons.


[For details as to subjects and methods of admission, see below and pages 33-53.

For admission to the first year class, communications should be addressed to the Registrar. See below and pages 33-53.

For admission to advanced standing from other colleges and universities, communications should be addressed to the College of Law. See below and pages 52 and 53.]

Admission to the First-Year Class.-Applicants for admission to the first-year class as candidates for a degree must be at least eighteen years of age, and must have had a previous education at least equivalent to a high school course.* The educational requirement may be satisfied by the presentation of certificates, or by examinations, as follows:

A. Admission on Diploma or Certificate.-The following applicants will be admitted without examination, upon the presentation of satisfactory certificates or diplomas :

(1) Graduates of universities and colleges, or students who have met the entrance requirements and satisfactorily completed one year of study in any university or college of approved standing.

(2) Graduates of high schools and academies of approved standing in a course of not less than four years, or, if less than four years, including the examination subjects required for admission to the College, or their substantial equivalents.

(3) Holders of an academic diploma, or any sixty-count academic certificate, issued by the Regents of the State of New York.

Applications for admission on a diploma or certificate issued by a public or private high school or academy must be sent in advance to the Registrar of the University by the Principal of the school issuing the diploma and not by the candidate himself, and must be accompanied by full and specific information with regard to the course of study, the time given to each subject and the amount of work covered in each subject. Where a catalogue or circular is issued by the school this should also be filed with the application. Blank forms of certificate may be obtained of the Registrar.

B. Admission on Examination.-All other applicants, if candidates for a degree, are required to pass a satisfactory examination in the subjects required for admission to the Academic Department. See pages 33, 37 and 45.

*"Resolved, That the American Bar Association is of the opinion that before a student commences the study of law, it is desirable that he should have received a general education at least equivalent to a high school course, and that persons who have not completed the equivalent of such a course should not be admitted into law schools as candidates for a degree." From the Proceedings of the American Bar Association for 1897, p. 33.

Admission to Advanced Standing.-Applicants for admission to advanced standing as members of the Junior (second-year) class must be at least nineteen years of age, must meet the educational requirement specified above for admission to the first-year class, and must pass a satisfactory examination in all the law work of the first year, or offer satisfactory certificates of the completion of such work in another law school whose entrance requirements are equal to those of this college and whose course of study requires three years for its completion. Certificates of law work must specify the number of class-room hours given to each subject and the text-books used, and must be forwarded directly from an officer of the school issuing the certificate to the Secretary of the College of Law.

Admission as Special Students.-Applicants who are twenty years of age may, in the discretion of the Faculty, be admitted to the college without examination as special students, not candidates for a degree, and may elect such work as they desire, subject to the permission of the professors whose subjects are selected. This privilege will be granted only upon written application specifying the age of the applicant, the amount of preparatory study or of previous law study, and accompanied if practicable by certificates from the preparatory school, law school, or attorney, under whose direction such studies have been pursued. New York students will not be admitted as special students unless they present a Regents' Law Student Certificate. Applicants are advised to correspond with the Secretary of the College of Law before presenting themselves in person. In order to remain in the college special students must pass satisfactory examinations in at least ten hours of work (equal to two class-rooms hours a day). Special students may be admitted as candidates for a degree if they pass the required entrance examinations before the beginning of their second year in the College.

Admission of Students from the Academic Department.— Juniors and Seniors in good standing in the Academic Department of the University are allowed, with permission of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and with the consent of the Faculty of the College of Law in each case, to elect studies in the College of Law which shall count toward graduation both in the academic course and in the College; but the sum total of hours so elected cannot exceed the number required for one year's work in the College of Law, or exceed nine hours per week in any term. Under this provision a student may complete a general course of University study and the law course in six years.
