The cage is in the basement and is exceptionally well lighted. The team is called out in February and has indoor practice till opportunity comes for outdoor practice. There is a padded running track in the galley, twenty-four laps to a mile. On the second floor are the offices of the director, containing a full set of anthropometric instruments. Physical examinations of all students are required. The dressing-rooms, lockers, and baths are in the basement. The building is heated by steam and lighted by electricity throughout. The basketball games during the winter are held here and the arrangement of the floor makes it well suited to the game. Class gymnastic exhibitions have been held in the past, but were discontinued in 1906-07. The trophy room offers a fine floor for dancing, and evening parties are held here.
