DAY

Opening with a most auspicious
sunlit day and closing by the glow of
lantern and bonfire, the Third Annual
Wonien's Field Day is stamped on the
W. A. A. ledger as a pronounced suc-
cess.
The athletic portion of the day open-
ed formally at 2 o'clock, with the ten-
nis semi-finals. Grace Babcock, '14,
won the right to meet Mary Bonner,
'12, for the championship finals, in
which the senior score of 6-1, 6-3
took the laurels. In the archery con-
test Harriet Williams, '15, led with a
17 score total. Hockey, with a 3-1
finish went to the upper-class team.
The hill sides were thronged by sup-
per parties during the intermission
between Field Day proper and the ev-
ening's entertainment. At 6:30 the
swing-out of the seniors initiated the
last of the day's program, and not a
vantage point ras left unfilled. The
swing-out was followed by the peach
blossom and May-pole dances by the
sophomores, the gaily caparisoned
freshman Morris dance, and the junior
reigen.
In finale, the participants of all the
dances joined in a lantern-lit march
around the field, forming many clever
terpsichorean creations, and ending
with a loudly cheered block M.
