Considerable difficulty was experienced in sitting down at the Sports
Spread Thursday night . . . The tables were cleverly chalked on the floor
and the flower painted on in bright bunches of red, blue and yellow ...
Delphiniums graced one table while gladioli and daisies proved an object of
great delight on another . .. The floor was much harder than we remem-
bered it, and it took several minutes of careful thinking and experimenting
to get settled in the reclining position which seemed to be the favorite .. .
A Good Time Was I'Iad By All ...
A great variety of costumes was present . . . There was everything
from Dr. Bell in an Irish freen formal to Janet Allington in a sweat shirt with
a bright red "L" on the back, and we never found out what it stood for . . .
Miss Hartwig, a. the main table, wore a molasses colored knitted suit of her
own creation, and when we entered she was busily explaining to an interested
group the intricacies of leaving holes for the belt which was separate - - .
Kate Landrum came panting in from a J.G.P. rehearsal in a white sweater
and brown skirt and scarf . . . She hurriedly sat down and the banquet
began. . . Lois Spreen, general chairman, apologized for the lack of a cock-
tail but suggested that Dr. Bell would provide the same stimulus and intro-
duced her ... Dr. Bell presented the awards . .. Ruth Friedman received
the volley ball cup for the AE.Phis who, incidentally, turned out en masse,
thus receiving the orchids of the week for spirit .. . Virginia Donahue, Zone
V captain, was awarded the basketball cup, and Lillian Scott, Merida Hobart,
Eva Goldman received special recognition for winning fall individual sports
tournaments .. . The new members of W.A.A. (an honor given to anyone
having 50 W.A.A. points) were introduced, and hockey class numerals were
given to Elinor Bale, Barbara Eppstein, Helen Harp, Margaret Newnan, Car-
oline Salisbury, Martha Tillman, and Mary Wheat, . . Louise Lockeman was
given a hockey stick in recognition of her outstanding hockey playing ...
Then the subject of dinner was introduced in the form of ham, potato
salad, rolls and jelly . . . Looking around we saw Janet Allington, Norma
Curtis and Mary Graham enjoying themselves in a most enthusiastic way
. . Dinner was interrupted by Lois Spreen who announced that Miss Bloo-
mer, Rythms instructor, had suddenly decided to fulfill a life-long desire
and dance on the table . . . She suddenly grew shy, however, and changed
her mind, probably because of the amused chuckles that arose . .. And
with coffee and cake, the dinner finished, and everyone gathered to discuss
their particular interests ... .
Off in one corner we viewed Miss Peaseley with a group of enthusiasts
discussing the plans for the basketball games with Michigan State next
Saturday, and everyone was remembering (in loud tones) the hilarious
time had by all on the last trip . . . In the middle of the floor, we saw Sally
Kenny and Helen Harp in the new Physical Education major outfits ...
Really quite snappy, navy blue serge shorts and a white sports shirt . . .
Mary Redden was dashing around in a blue dance outfit. . . And Miss Beise
in a new navy blue pin stripe suit was having a heated discussion with
Thelma Petersen . . . We wouldn't know, but we guess it was about the
bowling tournament since Miss Beise is faculty manager and Thelma student
manaer of the sport . . . Margot Goodrich was attempting to tell an en-
thusiastic audience about her badminton experience, while Miss Hartwig
was telling an audience that had gathered about a trip to Flint where she
and Miss Peaseley refereed a basketball game amid the cheers and blasts of
two, high school bands . . . Betty Greve and Miss Burr, in a stunning alice
blue suit with a navy blouse, were arguing about the equinine future of the
University ...
And The Natators..
In spite of the Sports Spread, timing the entrants for the swimming
meet scheduled~for March 17 went on Thursday, as usual, at the Union pool
.. . The purpose of all this seemingly useless work is to class each woman
so she will be more evenly matched. . . Each event will be run off in three
heats . . . We saw Winifred Arnold from Delta Gamma free-style her way
the length of the pool in 15.5 and later on Eileen Lay from Gamma Phi
Beta . . . Betty Wood rpresented Betsy Barbour in the 25-yard breast-
stroke . . . Ruth Wood, who was one of the timers, took enough time out
to have her back-stroke timed in both the 25 and 40-yard events and free-
style in the 25-yard event ...
Events of the meet will be many, so that everyone will be able to show
her particular talent . . . Besides the free-style, side-stroke, breast-stroke
and back-stroke in both the 25- and 40-yard lengths, there will be a diving
contest, a 300-yard medley relay, and a 200-yard free-style race . . . Each
girl will be able to enter three events . . . Sally Kenny, the new swimming
manager, announces the houses to be timed the week of March 8 are Delta
Gamma, Delta Zeta, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Alpha Beta, Kappa Alpha
Theta, Kappa Delta, Phi Sigma Sigma, Pi Beta Phi, Theta Phi Alpha
and Zeta Tau Alpha . . . The best hours are Tuesday and Thursday from
7:30 p.m. to 9:30 a.m. or on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.... . . Houses
for this week were Zone IV, Newberry, Jordan, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha
Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Gamma Delta, A.O.Pi, Alpha Phi, Alpha
Zi Delta ani Tri Delt ....
Badminton Goes On.. .
And moce badminton news . . . The regular mixed practice Wednesday
evening was enlivened by drawing of names of partners for the mixed doubles
tornament which is scheduled for next Wednesday . . . And you may be
sure that all the fans will be there . . . The system of drawing was used to
make the tournament more exciting and the outcome a matter of doubt . . .
Miss Burr drew a. boy's name while Louise Paine drew a girl and the two
will play together.. .

Alex Hudson will be Jane Quirk's partner, Helen Stram will play with
Roger Longley, Eustace Fox with Dorothy Lyndon, Bob Wilkins with Margot
Goodrich; Gwen Bryce and Harry Kasabach will be partners, as will John
Kitchell and Marguerite McQuillan, Jerry McCarthy and Louise Paine, and
Ernie Johnson and Phyllis Carey . .
Barbara Heath and Janet Mills defeated Eula Bain and Janet Elliot,
15-3, 7-15, and 15-9, in the only game played thus far in the beginners' tour-
nament in which 12 teams are entered.. Manager Kipf is urging all
beginners to get their games played off as quickly as possible . . . The
women's doubles tournament is getting off to a grand start with 10 entering
teams . . . According to Carolyn Woodford, the manager, the first and
second rounds must be played off by Thursday, March 12 . . . The cham-
pions of last year were Louise Paine, Jean Bonisteel, and Hope Hartwig . .
The Club Basketball members are going to have an exciting tournament
the next few weeks for the unique trophy of a chocolate cake . . . The four
teams, which were chosen by lot, are captained by Helen Harp, Sally Kenny,
Betty Lyon, and Martha Tillman
The teams will start a round robin tournament next Tuesday so that
each will play three games and the winning team will take the cake . . . It
seems to be a mystery where the cake is coming from. . . but we don't expect
the winners to be in sight very long after they have been awarded the prize ...
The rifle range in the Woman's Athletic Building is as busy as ever these
days . . . On Thursday afternoon Eileen Lay was in charge, and Betty
Howard, Laura Brilliantine, and Charlotte Meredith were all there . . .
Laura shot a 93, the high score for the afternoon . . The last week's inter-
collegiate scores were: University of Michigan 486, University of Maryland
496. Drexel Institute 496, University of Oklahoma 495, Cornell University 490
. The University of Washington, Louisiana State University, and Rhode
Island State College defaulted . . . The girls that piled up the score of 486 for,
Michigan were Betsy Odell, Eileen Lay, Betty Robertson, Elda Faster and
Dor othy Williams.
You Hit The Spot . .
There's plenty of action down at the bowling alleys from 4 to 6 every
afternoon . . . The three major leagues are fighting tooth and nail for the
tournament championships. . . There are three tournaments in the running
