College News and Departmental Notes: Physical Education
by Departmental notes - 1916
Field Day is an annual event in Teachers College. As all the students in the four undergraduate classes may compete, it has come to be the most vital feature of the Athletic Association. Teachers College Field Day is unique inasmuch as the events introduced differ widely from the usual college field day list of events. The throwing of the discus and javelin as well as the lariat are both interesting and popular, as is also the contest in dance, in which the even-year classes compete against the odd. This year, group contests were added, which permitted a larger number to take part. All who desired could enter, the score each one made being recorded as the numerator of a fraction whose denominator was the number participating in the group. Reducing this fraction gave the average of the group. Each class having its own group, the average for the continuous baseball throw and the continuous broad jump was recorded in this way. It proved a very satisfactory method, and permitted nearly two hundred students to participate in the events. The winner of the entire competition was the class of 1919.
