Doris Dalton Tells
of Early Inclination

for Stage

Career

By Marjorie Western, '35
"I don't know exactly how it hap-
pened. I have always been inter-
ested in the stage and I used to put
on plays when I was very little, just
as every child does." In thesel
words Doris Dalton, one of the stars
of the Dramatic Festival, tells of
her inclinations towards dramatic
work.
While in high school she ap-
peared in amateur productions and
while at Wellesley she was award-
ed the Davenport prize for great-
est progress in dramatic art.
She won her first role rather by'
accident. One day'a group of her
friends were going to read a part.
She went along with them and de-
cided to try out for it, and got the
job.
After that she had to struggle
against the opposition of her fam-
ily. She had been brought up in
New England and the traditional
distaste for people of the theatre
was born in her. However she over-
came this and has made a success
of it.
In speaking of hobbies Miss Dal-
ton said she was never a sports-
woman. "When I try to swim I
sink immediately, when I hit a ten-
nis ball it goes into the woods be-
yond, and when I drive a golf ball
it dribbles down the green like a
hockey ball."
Miss Dalton is enthusiastic about
the benefits of the dramatic
festival for the students of the Uni-
versity. "Students are apt to, be-
come'walled in by the school and'
their own activities so I feel that
it is a great privilege to have such
a season as this."

SUCCESSFUL SPORT'
SEASON CO9NCLUODO
Eleven Popular Games Featured
in Tournaments During
Past Year.
Fourteen tournaments in eleven
sports have been conducted by the
women's department of physical
education during, the past year.
Three of these, golf, tennis, and ar-
chery are held in both fall and
spring. The other activities in
,which there has been a great deal
of competitiori and interest shown
are hockey, basketball, badminton,
rifle, swimming, ping-pong, fenc-
ing, and baseball.
Basketball proved to be the most
popular team sport because every
organization was represented and
the competition was exceptionally
keen. Tennis is the most popular
individual sport.
Badminton was the one new
sport introduced in the intramural
program this year and proved to be
popular. Although awards in sep-
arate sports have been given out,
the winner -of the all-participation
cup has not been determined as yet
but the number of women signed
up in all extra-curricular activity
in shorts amounts to 2,500. This
number includes those who signed
up in more than one sport.
The extra-curricular sports ac-
tivities are conducted by the physi-
cal education department and the
Women's Athletic association. The
latter organization has a manager
of each sport who works with Miss
Ruth Hassinger, and Miss Marie
