800 Women Have Elected Some
Form Of Athletics This Year

That athletics play an increasingly
important part in the life of the Uni-
versity woman is evidenced by the
fact that more than 800 women have
elected some form of athletic work
during the present semester in com-
parison to the 457 women who elected
work in this department in 1921. This
is in addition to the hundreds of wo-
men in the freshman and sophomore
classes:who are taking the compul-
sory physical education work pre-
scribed for the first two years, accord-
ing to Miss Ethel McCormick, super-
visor of physical education for women.
The work for the women in this de-
partment is divided into three seasons.
The teaching of physical education for
those who wish to teach the subject;
the games, which draw the extra num-
bers such as hockey, archery, quoits
and tennis in the fall; dancing, gym-
nastic games and basketball in the
winter, while track, baseball and ten-
nis are featured in the spring months.
The spring season of physical edu-
cation will begin with the first meet-
ing of classes after spring vacation.
All classes will then be held on Pal-
mer athletic field.
Tournaments are held in all of the
listed games, the inter-house and
inter-class basketball series being
finished only recently. While swim-
ming is taught in a small pool, not
large enough for competition, a meet
was held a ,fortnight ago in the pool
of the Y. M. C. A. Several records
were made in this meet which entitled
women to athletic honor points in the
present system of grading.
The series of rifle shoots held this
winter is the only intercollegiate con-
test for the women at the present time,
The rifle challenges are held under
the supervision of the officers of the
R. O. T. C. Each team shoots in its
own gallery and the targets are ex-
Dr. Margaret Bell, of the University
health service, is head of the depart-
ment of physical education for wo-
men. Miss Ethel McCormick, recently
appointed to the staff, is supervising
the actual work of physical play and
games for women.


As women's physician on the
Health Service staff and director of
the physical education department,
Dr. Margaret Bell is filling two posi-
tions on the Michigan campus which
are of vital importance to the wel-
fare of University women.
This is Dr. Bell's first year at the

Tentatiye plans are also being made1
for a large swimming pool to be builtI
in the east end of Barbour gym-
nasium. That this will make a strong
appeal to the women of the University
has beenp roved by the success of the
