Four Members of Board Are in
Charge of Planning
Distinctly a novelty on the Uni-
versity of Michigan campus will be
the Women's Athletic Association
cabin, plans for which are now be-
ing completed by the Executive
Board of W. A. A. and the Physi-
cal Education department, an-
nounced Helen Domine, '31, presi-
dent of the organization.
The cabin, which will be complet-
ed in the near future, will be the
result of discussions held at the
Athletic Conference of American
College Women which met here
last spring. Such a project is part
of the national platform, and many
colleges have cabins of this sort
which serve as centers for out-
door sports of all kinds throughout
the year.
W. A. A. to Finance Cabin.
W. A. A. will own and finance the
cabin, and only members will be
permitted to use it. This will be the
only building owned by the Athletic
Association, and will tend to unite
the members more closely. "What
we are planning," said Miss Do-
mine, "is something on the river,
perhaps in some woods, which
will be an objective for hiking, rid-
ing, or canoeing parties in any sea-
son. We would also like a loca-
tion suitable for skiing and-tobag-
goning. The cabin will have sleep-
ing accomodations and will be suit-
able for week-end parties. It must
be within walking distance of
Inspect Possible Locations.
Mrs. Dorothy Hall, faculty ad-
visor of W. A. A., will go on an in-
spection trip Sunday, October 26,
to view possible locations.
The executive board, which is
working on plans for the cabin pro-
ject and for the Membership Cam-
paign, includes Helen Domine, '31,
Dorothy Sample, '32, Margaret Ea-
mon, '32, and Dorothy Ellsworth,
"Do we want to enter the Univer-
sity after finishing here? Of course
we do. Why, we wouldn't even con-
sider going to any other college."
Such was the answer of a group of
University High School girls to the
above question.
Contrary to the opinion of some
people, the girls did not seem to
think that attending a college
which was located in their home
town was a drawback worthy of
consideration. One confessed, how-
ever, that she would like to live
in a sorority house rather than at
home. "It would be more like col-
lege life," she added.
These High School girls are al-
ready anticipating, with pleasure,'
the campus activities to which they
will be eligible after enrollment in
the University.
Ann Arbor girls have always been
active on the campus, prominent
not only in activities, but also out-
standing in scholarship. They have
entered the athletic field, being
leaders in W. A. A., have gone out
for publications, and have been ac-
tive in the Woman's League and in
musical organizations.

Broadway Theaters
Claim EdnaMauer, '29
Miss Edna Mauer, '29, who has
during the last year been doing
work in dramatic productions onI
Broadway, has taken 'Muriell Ver-
nor' for her stage name. Miss
Maurer has done bits in produc-
tions and has also been costume
mistress. This summer she was
advisor at a girls camp just out of
New York city, but has now re-
turned to the city to renew her
work in the theatre.
Miss Maurer was very active in
the dramatic field while she was
in the University, having been in
both the Play Production depart-
ment and Comedy Club.
"Women can assimilate facts,
much more rapidly than men but
they do not have the ability to re-
late them as well," declared Alli-
son Hibbard, dean of the College
of Liberal Arts at Northwestern
University. -

and Mrs. W. D. Henderson in charge

Besides taking charge of all the

new projects, a program is being
