Thirteen w o m e n represented
Michigan in the swimming Play
Day or "Splash Party" which was
held by Green Splash, honorary
swimming club at Michigan State
College, last Saturday afternoon.
These women earned the highest
number of points, 30, in the ten
events, the other four schools win-
ning in the following order, Michi-
gan State College, 28, Detroit City
College, 19, State Normal School at
Ypsilanti, 10, and Battle Creek
Teachers College, 3. Eighty women
competed in the various events.
Karen Larson, '34, won first place
in the crawl for form and third
place in the free style. Jean Bots-
ford, '33, placed second in the free
style, and second in the back
stroke. Jean Berridge, '33, won first
place in the diving contest and
placed third in the back stroke.
Ruth Kprtz, '34; placed first in the
balloon race. The relay team made
up of Leonore Caro, '32, Jean Bots-
ford, and Jean Berridge won first
place in the medley relay.
The Play Day was held in order
to give women from the different
colleges of the State an opportun-
ity to meet, rather than for com-
petition. The program began with
a lunch at the W.A.A. cabin, which
is located about five miles from the
campus, and following the com-
petition, a tea-dance was given for
the guests. The instructors who at-
tended and the swimming man-
agers discussed plans for play-days,
and each manager told of the ath-
letichorganization of the school
which she represented.
Those students who went from
Michigan were driven to Lansing
by members of the women's physi-
c a 1 education faculty. Faculty
members who attended were Miss
Ruth Hassinger, Miss Marie Hart-
wig, Dr. Mabel Rugen, Miss Doro-
thy Beise, and Miss Editha Barthel.
The group who competed Satur-
day will form the nucleus of a
swimming club to be formed soon,
announced Teressa Romani, '33,
swimming manager of the Wo-
men's Athletic Association. This
club will be organized under W.A.A.
for those students especially inter-
ested in this activity.

Miss Ruth Hassinger Explains1
System Whereby All j
Groups Compete.'
(Editor's Note: This is the sev-
enth of a series of articles on the
activities of the physical education,
Intramural, an extra - curricularr
program, infers competition be-
tween organizations within a uni-7
versity and affords an opportunity
for a large number of women toc
participate in recreation, accordingl
to Miss Ruth Hassinger, instructor+
of physical education.
The women on the campus are<
grouped in sorority, dormitory andt
league-house units and are reached
through contacts made in personal
interviews, telephone, The Daily
publicity, and letters. Each unit has
a manager who acts as the "middle-
man" between her organization and+
the Intramural department, Missr
Hassinger continued.
Activity Plans Changed.
In the years past there have been
two distinct divisions of extra
curricular athletics, inter-class and
intramural, totally separate from
one another and meeting on differ-
ent days. This year, discarding the
plan of two separate tournaments,
inter-class is the outgrowth of in-

tramural. This change in plan gave
four days a week instead of two
for intramural activity. A student
wishing to play inter-class must
first play in intramural tourna-
The program for the year is di-
vided into four seasons, two outdoor
and two indoor, each season having
a team sport and at least two indi-
vidual sports organized in tourna-
ment form. The individual sports
such as swimming, golf, tennis, and
others are certainly social assets
particularly because of their carry-
over into after-college life. Team
sports do not have as great a
carry-over as individual sports, but
the value of contacts, group loyalty
and cooperation derived from them
cannot be overlooked.
Intramural Open to All.
Intramural activities are open to
all. Campus ineligibility does not
deprive a student from entering
athletic competition. /
