The oriole year book: Evansville Junior College
A thle tics OUR NEW GYMNASIUM All of our readers have probably heard the old saying or motto, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Dull boys or girls eithtr are very scarce around tho Seminary. Basketball, baseball, tennis and hiking have been the most common form of athletics participated in. During the early part of the season basket-ball interest ran very high due to the efforts of Coach Davis and Captain P. James, but as the season progressed, practice grew harder and no schedule was arranged; interest dropped and it required untiring efforts on the part of our noble captain to get the teams out for practice. Finally the Literary Society generously offered to let the Athletic Association hold a pep program one Friday evening. Enthusiastic speeches were made by all the players, a yell leader was appointed, yells practiced and the good old pep was again reinstated, and as a result we developed a team worthy of any school three or four times our size.
