Conference Stresses
Athletics for Women
WISCONSIN-At a national Phys-
ical Education conference held re-
cently in Madison, the need of Ath-
letics for all women was stressed.
Obtaining and maintaining inter-
est of all women in sports is the
major problem. A well conducted
advertising campaign and empha-
sis upon participation not skill,
seem to be the two chief means of
carrying on a successful athletic
program. Minnesota advanced a
new and rather good idea of award-
ing letters to all participants in
sports regardless of skill.

to article 3, one sponsoring a na-
tional health week, and the other
recommending medical and physi-
cal examinations.
Minimum Awards Recommended.
In article 4, which is concerned
with awards, the conference recom-
mended the giving of awards which,
are of minimum intrinsic value.
The delegates also recommended
that scholastic standards for eligi-,
bility in sports be dropped. Non-
participation of women in Olympic1
games, and a petition for member-
ship on the Women's Division ofI
N. A. A. F. were the other changes1
recommended in the platform. t
It was also recommended that
the central section be divided, cre-
ating a southern section and a nor- '
thern central section, as the inter-
ests of the southern schools, due to
year-around outdoor programs, are
appreciably different from those of
the north.
Topics for informal discussionsj
during the business meetings in-
cluded play-days, W.A.A. cabins, in-
tramural sports, winter sports, Or-
chesis, Olympic games, and athletic
clubs. The unofficial delegates
round-table discussions were divid-
ed into co-educational schools, wo-
men's colleges, and junior colleges.
Paper Discusses Reorganization.
The most important paper was
that read by the Ohio State dele-
gate on the organization of women's
athletics on a new basis. Miss
Blanche Trilling, director of physi-
cal education at Wisconsin, spoke
on the history of A. C. A. C. W.
The last day of the conference
was devoted to summaries and re-
ports on all the discussions, and a
play-day was held in the afternoon.
A formal banquet held on Friday,
an Orchesis program, and a tea giv-
en by the physical education club
were the main features of enter-
Approximately one hundred col-
leges were represented at the con-
ference, according to Miss Elsworth,
each school sending one official del-
egate and an optional number of
unofficial delegates.
It was voted to hold the next,
central sectional conference at Den-
ison College, Ohio, in 1934. The
next national conference will be
