       make use of the weight training pro-
       gram under Woodward. The other
       two intercollegiate sports, gymnas-
       tics and fencing, have included the
       physical training program     in their
       own training quarters.
         The Navy ROTC unit at the Uni-
       versity became interested in the
       program and in 1964 Capt. Forrest
       Todd of the Navy and Maj. Robert
       Otteraaen of the Marine Corps ar-
       ranged to include Navy       midship-
       men and Marine officer candidates
       in the physical fitness training work.
         The program includes a dozen
       different physical exercises. Among
       them are repetition exercises using
       barbells weighing more than 100
>'     pounds, and traveling along a sus-
       pended    ladder with    your hands
       and   "chinning" yourself a dozen
       times. After each workout in the
       training room   the participant runs
       or jogs a half mile or more on the
           iversity's indooror outdoor track,
       depending on     the weather.
         Before-and-after tests are given
       to each person participating in the
       program so he can see the increase
       in strength, speed, and agility-and
       the loss in excess weight.

       1916 Reunion
       TJNDER THE chairmanship of Milo K.
          Swanton, the Class of 1916 Reunion
       Committee is completing plans for a
       memorable two-day reunion program. As
       could be expected from this class, a large
       number of "I Will Return" cards have al-
       ready been received. There has also been
       a good response to the Class Memorial
       Gift Fund.
         Golden Jubilee Reunion details recently
       reported in a letter to 16ers reveal there
       will be two great days of "re-acquainting
       time" as they re-live pre-World War I
       events and enjoy a pleasure-packed never-
       to-be-forgotten get-together. Returning
       like a pack of Rip Van Winkles, this year's
       Half Century Class will be amazed at
       what they will see on a conducted tour
       of the campus.
         Of the 720 1916 graduates pictured in
       the 1917 Badger, nearly 500 still survive.
       Always proud of being different, this class
       has not yet decided what to do with its
       gift but will vote on it at the reunion. Or-
       dinarily a class decides on a project first.
       The Class of 1916 decided to wait and see.
       There is now a strong sentiment in favor
       of the Elvehjem Art Center.
