The Social Beaver—"Field Day" (Excerpt)
The freshmen-sophomore field day, held on campus Saturday afternoon. Having attended many field days, MIT's president James R. Killian Jr knows how to dress for this occasion. The freshman and sophomore football teams each play several warm up games with teams from nearby schools and present an exciting brand of football. The one mile relay race is run off between the halves of the football game. The tug of war has two teams of 25 men each. The field day cup is displayed by the field day chairman.
