Those Who Have Earned Five
W.A.A. Points to be
The Women's Athletic Associa-
tion officially opened its spring
membership drive last Thursday
with the appointment of a new
membership committee, which will
work with Dorothy Ellsworth, '32,
treasurer, during the campaign.
Gladys Schroeder, '33, is chair-
man of the membership commit-
tee, and will be assisted by Beatrice
Olmstead, '33, Corrine Fries, '34,
Josephine Fisher, '32, Lydia Sey-
mour, '34, Frances Manchester, '34,
Eleanor Allen, '34, and Elizabeth
Cooper, '34Ed.,
This committee will be in the
W. A. A. office on the main floor of;
the League building after 3 o'clock
next Tuesday afternoon, and will
answer any questions about the or-
ganization and admit toumember-
ship those who have earned the
five W. A. A. points requisite to
membership and who pay the mem-
bership fee of one dollar.
Activity Requires Five Points.
All women registered in the Uni-
versity are inactive members of
W. A. A., and' may become active
members by earning five W. A. A.
oints and paying the membership
fee. W. A. A. points may be earned
by hiking, by participating in ma-
jor and minor sports, tournaments,
the annual horse shbW and dance
drama, and by attendance at the
outdoor parties sponsored by the
Membership in the association
offers opportunities for leadership
and healthful recreation through
the traditions it sponsors, such as
the Penny Carnival, Lantern Night,
and Freshman Play Day, and
through its more strictly social ac-
tivities such as skiing and tobag-
goning parties, breakfasts at the
fire place, and hikes.
The organization of W. A. A. is
made up of four officers, and an
executive board composed of rep-
resentatives of each major and
minor sport on the campus. Each
sport chairman manages her activi-
ty during its season, arranging in-
tramural and interclass tourna-
ments, and co-operating generally
with the physical education depart-
ment for women. The other mem-
bers of the executive board are the
publicity manager, the point re-
corder, the intramural manager,
the outdoor manager, and the A. C.
A. C. W. representative.
Members May Wear Jacket.
Members of W. A. A. are permit-
.ted to wear the regulation jacket,
of dark blue flannel, with class
numerals or awards on the pocket.
These 'jackets may be or de r e d
through the treasurer, Dorothy
"Taking as its standard 'Athletics
for All'," states Helen Domine, '31,
p r e si d e n t of the organization.
"W. A. A. is striving to build up a
constructive program of sports in
which every woman student may
find a place."
A chart explaining the point sys-
tem and awards is printed in the
"M" book, a copy of which may be
obtained at the W. A. A. office.

"In more than one way does the
University at Oxford differ from
our American University," stated
Prof. Arthur Lyon Cross of the his-
tory department who has visited
Oxford several times. "As to the
English woman, she has entirely
different ideas of work, entertain-
ment, and dress,"
Professor Cross continued with a
description of the woman under-
graduate at Oxford. She is quite
serious and mature and very de-
termined. She is most often a plain
looking individual, for the sombre
black of the regulation- cap and
gown which she wears detracts
from her appearance.
Bicycle is Popular Vehicle.
The bicycle is the popular ve-1
hicle in England and the English
woman rides her bicycle to and
from the lecture halls which are
the campus buildings. Attendance
at lectures is not compulsory and
she may go to classes whenever it
pleases her.I
"Although the Oxford woman de-I
votes most of her time to her stud-
ies, she takes a great interest in
athletics and afternoon teas," as-,
serted Professor Cross. Sports are
the English woman's forte. She is
proficient in tennis, golf, lacrosse,
hockey, and rowing. After an en-
ergetic game or two, she goes to
the men's "diggings" with the pro-
per chaperonage and has her af-
ternoon tea.
At eleven o'clock the college gates
close and all women must be in.

"However," she added, "women de-
siring to sign up for golf must have
two consecutive hours free. This
year we plan to definitely divide the
1 students into three groups, begin-
ners, intermediate, and superior, in
all the sports so that players of
about the same ability will play to-
gether," she stated.
