leges of membership. This quali-
fication is to remain unchanged.
However, at present the earning of
even one point involves the earn-
ing of at least twenty-five as a
minimum, in hiking, for example,
which demands the least possible
amount of skill. According to the
new ruling, if passed, the obtain-
ing of W. A. A. points and thereby
eligibility to the organization will
be made easier by two important
avenues. In intramural activities.
"any woman who plays in at least
one intramural game will receive
five points at the end of the season,
upon her request." And, among
individual scores, "one point will
be given for every mile hiked, with
a minimum of five miles as one
In ' the first amendment, the
words "upon her request" were in-
serted, according to Betty Smither
'28, president of the executive
board, in order that no points
would be given to anyone who was
not genuinely interested. On the
other hand, anyone with enough
interest in W. A. A. to hike five
miles could ; qualify herself for
1 membership, a situation which is,
at present, impossible.
This question of hobby versus
skill is one which was very much
in the limelight at all the district
conventions of the Athletic Con-
ference of American College Wom-
en last year and which will un-
doubtedly receive major attention
