New Range To Be Finest In Country;
Expected To Be Ready For
Opening Contests
Challenges from 16 universities and
colleges scattered in practically every
section of the country have been re-
ceived by the women's rifle team and
approximately 20 challenges have
been issued by the local team in an-
ticipation of participating in not less
than 30 contests during the coming
rifle matches. With the first of the
matches to be shot off on Jan. 14 and
realizing that riflery is the only uni-
versity sport in which inter-collegiate
competition is permitted, the team as-
pirants are working hard to earn
places on the varsity team. It is ex-
pected that th new rifle range in tihe
new field house at Palmer field will
be ready in time for the match shoots,
according to Captain Bricker of the
Reserve Officers Training Corps who
is in charge of the team and the coin-
ing contests.
In the competition last year Maryland
university came out on top to win the
championship. Michigan won hut 12
out of 28 matches in which it con-
peted during the meet. The poor
showing was attributed to the fact
that poor practise facilities were ol,-
tainable and because of the loss of
much good material from the regular
team by graduation. The previous
year the Michigan team won practi-
cally 90 per cent of the shoots in
which it engaged and it is expecte;
that the team this ya il h s
t of the new range and a large turn-
out at practises will come back to
the form shown at that time.
The new rangeat the Palmer field
house will compare secondto none
in the country and should aid con;
siderably in the advancement towad
accuracy in marksmanship for the in-
ter-collegiate shoots, according to
Captain Bricker. The backstop of the
range is built of one-half inch steel
plates. The two plates will be set at
angles of 45 degrees to direct the
shot bullets to the sand boxes. There
will be an upper stop and a lower
stop, with the firing point elevated
about one foot from the floor, Speial
l v ighting fixtures are arranged, the
sand box and gym mats and additional
features will provide an excellent
shooting range for women, the best
in the country, said Captain Bricker.
"With such equipment as ours and
with such a range I am hoping that
every woman who knows anything
about handling a rifle and who is a
good shot will turn out for the team.
We want to have an abundance of
material from which to choose those
who will shoot the match contests."
The matches will be shot by a team
of ten members. The targets of th
flive highest scorers are to be counted
as qualifying scores and the sumtof
these five will be sent in for the
team record. The beginning rifle class
has advanced rapidly and much ma-.
terial is expected to be found here.
More than 12 other enthusiasts have
turned out to try for team positions.
The first four contest matches are
to be shot from the prone position,
the next three are scheduled as two
position matches, prone and sitting
postures to be used, while Athe last
three shoots will also be from the
prone. The shooting is scheduled to
take place on January 14. February
11, 18, 25, March 10, 17, 24. 31, Ap
28, and the final meet will take plaJ
May 5.
The challenges received to date and
which have been accepted by the lo-
cal team include the following: Pur-
due, Nevada, Illinois, Wisconsin, Cin-
cinnati, Michigan State, Missouri,
George Washington University, Ver-
mont, Montana, West Virginia, Co'
College, Nebraska, Syracuse, Univer-
sity of Vermont and State Agricul-
ture College, Maryland, 1926 champ..

All dormitories, sororities and lea-
gue houses are under rules formu-
lated by the Board of Representatives
and the Board of Directors of the
Women's league. The Board of Re-
presentatives is composed of the
presidents of all league houses, soror-
ities, and dormitories. Every woman
on the campus is automatically a
member of the Women's league. The-
oretically that makes the women self-
governing. Any student may have a
voice in'advising, forming, or rescind-
ing a new rule. The individual woman
is met in house meeting. Her ideas
are carried to the meeting of the
Board of Representatives by her
house president who in turn embodies
them in the rules made by the Board.
