that the organization, underwent in
the first few years of its exlstenc.
According to the minutes of the
first meeting preliminary to the form-
ing of the-association in 1905 the idea
of such an organization originated
with Dr H. r Brooks,vat tat time

up with the formation of a constitu-
Organized Sports
W. A. A. seems to have received
its inspiration from the success of
basketball as an organized sport. The
idea arose that other sports were
needed and like basketball needed to
be organized. It was for this purpose
that W.- A. A. was formed. In 1908-
1909 the only, organized sports were
bts-ketball, tennis and baseball, and
-every year from that time on, saw
additions to the list of organized
sports. Awards were adopted with the
organization of W. A. A., Wright, Kay
Co., of Detroit, offering the first
trophy cup for basketball in 1905. In
1908, the field now known as P'almer
field was purchased, with the aid of
the Women's league which was for
several years after that time a sep-
arate organization. Membership was
OpenI to all women upon the payment
of a fee of 50 cents, while at the pres-.
ent time membership is limited to
women who make: a given number of
honor points.
Several interesting items were re-
corded in the minutes kept by the
secretaries of the organization since
the first meeting. Every item occur-
ring in a weep g, seemedi to be re-
corded with the utmost accuracy,
cven to an intem'iiption caused by a
mouse. The records show that the
first organized interclass basketball
match was won by the senior class
and the following year the juniom'
class claimed the honors.
governed By Board
The organization as it is today is
governed by an executive board made
up of the president, vice-president,
secretary and treasurer as elected
officers, and a group of officrs who
receive their positions by appoint-
ment.' These officers are the elected
managers of the various sports, a pub-
licity manager, an intramural manager

eral clubs have been formed, in the
hope that within their scope they may
hold an interest for every woman.
There are riding, hiking and outdoor
clubs. The hiking and Outdoor clubs
have recently been c'bmbined, due to
the fact that "Outdoor Club" is a more
inclusive term and therefore includes
hiking. The major functions, however,
are the W. A. A. banquets which oc-
cur during the year. The purpose of
the banquets is primarily to get the
group of interested W. A. A. workers
together, and to give out the awards.
Formerly these banquets were open to
all women, but they have been of
necessity limited to such women as
are interested in the organization.

ments will also be made for the an-
nual Freshman pageant which it is a
tradition for the class to produce
on Lantern night.
Another of the major functions of
the W. A. A. is to plan and execute
all the duties connected with Lantern
Night. An innovation was made last
year, in that, for the first timhe in
campus history, 'a student had entire
charge of the event. This responisibil-
ity was assumed by Margaret Mc-
Nally, '27, who is at time present pres-
ident of W. A. A.
