Interest of W. A. A.
to Be Organization
of All-Campus Club,
"What this University needs is an
outdoor club which will reach every
student," stated Dr. Margaret Bell,
head of physical education for wo-
men, in a recent interview. "We
need something which will arousel
a recreational interest in the chosen I
field of each student. We have all
the facilities for such an organiza-
tion and it is hoped that by arous-
ing the interest of the student body
that in a few years we can have
here a club which wil compare with
the Dartmouth Outing Club which
is so popular with the students of
Dartmouth University. To start
such a club is the goal of the Wom-
an's Athletic Association this year."
Mentions Facilities..
In pointing out facilities which
the University has Dr. Bell men-
tioned the Forestry camp at Davis
lake, the island near Mackinac
which was purchased just recently,
andl the Geology and Geography
camps in Tennessee. "Aside from
these and many others scattered
through- the country are the many
lovely land holdings within walking
distance from the campus, as the
Forest Reserve on Miller road. If
only we could make the students
interested in using these for recre-
ation as well as for field work it
would be a remarkable thing.
"Not only do we have the land
holdings but we also have the train-,
ed leaders on our faculty to super-
vise the movement," she said.
To Have Cabin.
"It is W. A. A.'s idea that by
tstarting the. movement by con-
structing a cabin on a situation
convenient to 'the students that
gradually it would grow until it em-
braced all of the other camps and
much more pleasure would be at-
tained from them by a greater num-
ber of people, students and faculty
both."
Dr. Bell went on to say that such
an undertaking will be successful
only if the support of all the women
is behind it. "If this is successful it
will mean that the women will have
begun something which will in time
be the most popular organization of
the campus for both men and
lwomen because it will reach stu-
dents in every field,

Michigan Women Suggest Ques.
tion of Dominion Status
for India.
As the final choice of a question
for the women's debate squad will I
not be made until early in Novem-
ber, universities are continuing to
submit possible subjects.
Northwestern University suggest-
ed that the women' debate the ques-
tion of the abolition of alimony.
Two universities would like to dis-
cuss the subject of state medicine.
This subject was debated by the"
smaller colleges in Michigan last
year. Whether women should be
allowed to enter the professions and
industry was the suggestion of an-
other university. Michigan submit-
ted the question of dominion status
for India.
The worhen's varsity teams have
an excellent opportunity of being
successful this year as besides the
many new women working on the;
squad five of last year's varsity de-
baters returned to school. They are:
Jean Hagaman, '33, Dorothy Davis,,
'33, Helen Haapamaki, '32, Eleanor
Gilmore, '33, Dorothy Daniels, '32.

NEW YORK-The women at New
York University are fortunate in
having the advantage of learning
to fence under the instruction of a
professional. It is thought that the
coeds will in this way become much
more graceful and ppised.

W.A.A. Was Originally Formed
to Unify And Further
Women's Sports.
By Elsie G. Feldman, '33.
Symbolizing the size and growth
of the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion, the Women's Field house was
completed in 1928. This building is
of use to all women enrolled in the
University.
To supply the need felt for a
unity among the various sports on
the campus and to further types of
recreation which would increase en-
joyable association among women
students, the Women's Athletic
Association was organized in the
year 1890 as a committee of the
Women's League-
In 1905 the Association became a
separate body, and in 1917 the com-
mittee on student afi'airs formally
accepted its constitution. Its busi-
ness was conducted by an executive
committet of seven including offi-
cers, class representatives, and rep-
reseiltatives from each sport.
The first indoor athletic meet was
held by W. A. A., in Barbour gym-
nasium in 1903, and has since then
become one of the most important
events of the year. Dr. Margaret
Bell, director of physical education
for women has been of active assist-
ance to the organization since 1923.
Besides organizing an indoor and
outdoor season for sports each
semester of the school year, W. A.
A., has sponsored many traditions,
notably Lantern Night, founded in

1914, the only activity in whfich
every woman on the campus par.;i-
cipates.
Meetings, informal spreads, aiidA
banquets make up the social activ-
ities of the year,
