that Miss Glenn would not be per-
mitted* to take part in the meet. Miss
Glenn holds the unique honor of be-
ing the only woman on a Varsity
fencing team in America.
"Skill is much more necessary
than mere strength and in regard to
any men with whom I have fenced
the only disadvantage which I have
felt was in the quality and amount of
training my opponent had had; theseI
things are to be overcome as easily'
by a wonan as by a man."
"I guess I've always wanted to
fence, sort of a suppressed desire,
you know," Miss Glenn smiled here,
"but before I came to college, last
year, I'd never held a foil in my
hands. Oh yes, I had too! Once, back
home, they had some foils at the
church I went to, and I played at
fencing, but I didn't know anything,
about it except that I liked it aw-
fully well."
Took Fencing For Gym
"I took fencing for gym credit all
last year," Miss Glenn continued,
"and then, last fall, when I saw a,
notice on the bulletin board asking
all co-eds interested in fencing to
report to Joseph Yaffa, fencing coach,
I did so. And well, I made the
Varsity," she skippe'd all the in-be-
tween stages, "and I've had wonder-
ful training from our coach. He's an
Egyptian, you know, and fences mar-
velously. Now, I'm teaching one
fencing class at Michigan State."
"Fencing is a comparatively new
sport on our campus. You see, it has
only been offered to men for three
or four years, and classes for wo-
men only began last year. Now, we

for two terms."
"Oh no! That isn't partiality," she
answered quickly. "Woman fencing
courses don't require as much prac-
tice as the men's, and not so many
hor's either. We hope to have a
girl's fencing team next year, and
if we can, we'll work it through the
W. A. A.
"I have fenced with your fencing
coach, Bela Tuscon, when he came
up to Lansing with the Detroit fenc-
ing club, some time ago. And I have
a bout with Miss Hoanna Savich, of

Is Only Varsity Fencer
Besides being the only woman on
a Varsity fencing team in America,
and a fencing instructor at Michigan
State, Miss Glenn is W. A. A. mana-
ger of fencing, secretary of the Fenc-
ing club, and expects to hold the
position of women's coach at the
state college next year. As there is
to be no fencing coach there next
year, .the Snartan's fencing club has
been started to keep the sport go-
I ing. There will be one to instruct
the freshmen, a saber, epee, and foil1
master, and a women's coach, which
position Miss Glenn will fill.
