Formal Opening Of Women's Field House After Years' Work
Realizes Fielding H. Yost's Program Of "Athletics For All"

By Marjorie Folliner
The formal opening of the new wo-
men's atheltic building on Palmer
field is the realization of dreams dat-
ing from the beginning of women's
athletics in the University of Michi-
gan and the completion of work on
the field and field house which. has
been going on for approximately a
year.
Director of Athletics Fielding H.
Yost's athletic program of "Athletics
for all" takes in women as well as
men. A year ago this month the
Board in Control of Athletics made
an appropriation of $300,000 for the
purpose of regrading Palmer field andi
building a field house. The fact that
an unsightly part of Ann Arbor has
been transformed into a beauty snot is
an unnecessary proof of the fact that
Coach Yost's vision extends far be-
yond the limited bounds of athletics.
Dr. Margaret Bell, head of the wo-
men's department of physical educa-
tion, has been a moving spirit behind
the whole project. Her maxim, "Make
athletics your hobby," worked so well
among the women of the University
that they outgrew Barbour gymnasium
long ago. Dr. Bell, assisted by a com-
mittee made up of Mrs. Fielding Yost,
Mrs. John B. Waite, and Mrs. Everett
S. Brown has planned the interior
decoration for the field house.
One of the architects, Lynn W. Fry,
is an alumnus of the University of
Michigan, having graduated in the
class of '17E. Fry and Kasurin. of
Ann Arbor, has succeeded admirably
in combining practicability and good
scape to be viewed from the terrace or
th; lounge will be points to be ad-
mired by the guests this afternoon.
The athletic building will be decked
in spring flowers, ferns, and palms for
the occasion. Simple refreshments of
tea, open sandwiches, and ices will be
served in the lounge and on the ter-
race. Miss Ethel A. McCormick, as-
sistant Professor of Physical Educa-
tion for women, has been in charge of

taste in almost pure Georgian archi-
tecture.
The athletic building resembles a
luxurious club-house. There are three
locker rooms, one for the academic
students, one for the major students,
and one for the faculty, which have
approximately 2000 lockers, 200 dress-
ing booths, and 70 showers, each with
an individual water control. The build-
ing includes office rooms for the fac-
ulty, a first-aid room which opens con-
veniently from the field, an equip-
ment room, a kitchen decorated in

range. The six or seven level acres
of the field will be divided into six-
teen tennis courts and three hockey
fields, according to present plans.
The athletic building is the first on
Michigan's campus, with the exception
of Barbour gymnasium, to be planned
especially for women. The new wo-
men's league building will be con-y
veniently nearby and the two will
undoubtedly form a nucleus for all
other buildings for women that are
to be built later. The formal open-
ing of the field house means more
than the putting into operation of
another building, for this building Isl
surrounded with Michigan traditions,
some of the famous spirit of Coach
Yost has been infused into it, and all
that is best in athletic history at Mich-
igan are the girders upon which this
new building has been erected.

Michigan women will be once more

Girls' play is the biggest class activ-

PRESIDENT LITTLE'S
IMESSAGE
In my opinion. th6 outstanding
achievement of the Board in Con-
trol of Athletics during the past
two years has been in its assist-
ance to the women students of
the University. The new build-
ing, which will be formally op-
ened today, represents a visible
guarantee of the interest and loy-
alty that the Board in Control
feels toward the women of the
University. Those who have al-
ready seen the building know that
it is becoming increasingly nec-
essary and inspiring surprise. I
strongly advise every woman stu-
dent in the University to visit it
at her first opportunity and to in-
clude the use of its splendid fa-
I cilities among her most prized
opportunities. P:L
