Club sports

By MARK ROMAN
Club sports. Ah yes, those are
the old-guys, now long past their
prime, who wander about the
ars of golf courses with big
green buttons proclaiming "I'm
Irish: In case of emergency give
me a beer" and who think
whopee cushions and signs say-
ing "Kick me, I are stupid" rank
among mankind's greatest
achievements.
Actually this world harbors an-
other manner of club sports and
this university offers a number
of activities for those who would
wish to direct excess bodily en-
ergies in a constructive vein.
There for the choosing are
such diverse sports as rugby, la-
crosse, soccer, paddleball, volley-
ball, skiing, fencing, and a host
of others. Those who step to the
beat of a different drummer may
select the National Association
of Pershing Rifles, a drill team.
Women s t u d e n t s are offered
swimming, basketball, and field
hockey. Several of the above
mentioned sports such as cricket
and field hockey enter full ac-
tivity only in the late spring.
Sports clubs are, to a large
degree, aptly described by their
name. Each club is composed by
a collection of people sharing an
active interest in a sport who
have come together to join in
competition as individuals or as
members of a team.
The competition may take sev-
eral forms. Five of the clubs,
rugby, lacrosse, volleyball, soc-
cer, and cricket compete on an
extramural basis, that is with
opponents from outside the uni-
versity. ,
At the present time, members
of the handball club are compet-
ing among themselves in club
tournaments. Triumphant mem-
bers will later journey to the
