Two Bandits Kidnap
Miss Hartwig Amid
Shouts of Women
By Elsie G. Feldman, '33.
Whether or not it was a fake has
not as yet been ascertained but
anyhow Marie Hartwig, instructor
in the physical education depart-
ment, was kidnapped yesterday.]
And a couple of women students
did it, too.
It happened this way. The Wo-
men's Athletic Association gave a
party yesterday and it was 2 o'clock
and they were all waiting to leave
from the Palmer Field house when
two big bad bandits, namely Esther
La Rowe and Charlotte Johnson
came in with a couple of guns,
fired off some shots and away they
went with Miss Hartwig.
Explanation at this point. They
were only cap guns and the shots
were fake so maybe the whole thing
was a fake.
Tumult and consternation fol-
lowed and all the women packed up
pretended they were Philo Vance
and skipped off to the arboretum,
the dell for all kidnappers, and sure
enough when they got to the gate
they found a little piece of paper
and like good detectives they looked
for more paper. They weren't such
good kidnappers anyhow. And they
looked until they found Miss Hart-
wig, and the two culprits got cold
feet the last minute and had to
give up. Well they were all hungry
so they went back to the Palmer
Field house and had refreshments.
Because they were all so con-
cerned with the food, further in-
vestigations were not made at that
time but plans have been made for
a cross examination of the bandits.

In spite of weather forecasts, an
outdoor trail sponsored by the Wo-
man's Athletic Association was held
yesterday. About 40 women attend-
ed.
Groups met at 2 o'clock at the
Palmer Field house and hiked out
beyond the arboretum. Refresh-
ments were served later at the
Palmer Field house.
This was the-first of an exten-
sive outdoor program which has
been planned for the year as well
as the finale of the Women's Ath-
letic Association membership drive.
All women who attended received
five activity points and with the re-
ceipt of one dollar became an active
member of the organization. Glen-
dora Gosling, '33, outdoor manager,
was in charge of the party.
