Special news flashes from the Convention of the Mid-West
Physical Education Association in Grand Rapids via special de-
livery from Miss Hartwig . . . At the meeting of the Research
Section Thursday afternoon Miss Dorothy Beise was elected
secetary for the coming year . . . At a breakfast for the Na-
tional Amateur Athletic Federation Friday morning Dr. Margaret Bell spoke
on "The Importance of Health Standards . . . She was also on the resolu-
tions committee for the convention ...
Frances Redden and Carolyn Woodford distinguished themselves by I
being the first to offer their services to a speaker in the research section,
while Audrey Anderson also distinguished herself by getting in the way of
an enthusiastic spectator at the dance section who was in the process of
falling off her chair . . . Audrey entered right in and kept her company ---
Helen Strain and Helen McLane were found busily taking notes at the
recreation meeting . . .
Alumni Get Together.. .
A luncheon was held for the Michigan Alumnae Friday noon at the i
Pantlind Hotel .. . Dr. J. R. Sharman was reserving 25 places for it but
objections were made on the grounds that there were already 15 students
and 7 faculty there on Thursday, and many more were expected on Friday
. . . Miss Peaseley was rather upset during the first part of the conference
because nobody seemed to like her new hat . . . When she discovered that
she was wearing the brim down instead of up, even she agreed with them.
Quite a furore was aroused during the convention delegates at the news
of the prospective dance demonstration by the Michigan men . .
The Women's Athletic exhibit, directed by Gertrude Penhale, assisted
by the other teacher-training institutions of the state, was quite a success
. . . The little figures playing on the fields were made of pipe cleaners
with corks and buttons for heads . . . Michigan State sent a miniature
swimming pool with real water in it and dolls swimming around . .
Among the Michigan alumnae who attended the convention were Norma
Hicks, '33; Elizabeth Gardner, '32; Esther LaRowe, '32; Henrietta Char-
ington, '35; Ruth Root, '35, Wilma Clizbe, Helen Beaumont and Gladys
Himpson . . .
At The Pool ... .I
Excitement was surely breaking loose at the swimming meet last Tues-
day . . . The Union elevator man seemed quite bewildered by the swarms of
girls he had to transport . . . and pandemonium seemed to be breaking
loose at the pool. . . One girl told us that her watch which had been losing
time for the last four months, gained ten minutes and she was positive it was
due mostly to the atmosphere of the place..--
Sally Kenny and Miss Dover who were in charge of the meet were check-
ing over last minute details as we arrived, and Esther Middlewood, the re-
corder, was furiously busy making sure of all the line-ups.
. . Miss Hartwig and Dr. Bell, looking very official and
unruffled in their white uniforms, seemed to be the only
people who weren't in a dither about it all .. .
In the dressing room, Tink Johnston, who later turned
out to be high point woman of the evening, obliged with
a solo and Helen Harp joined her in another corner of the
room. .. .
But on to the meet . . . Timers Helen McLean, Brenda Parkinson, Jean-
Cristy Groh, Dorothy Martin, Isabel Whitehead, Barbara Kanouse and Sally
Messing were very business-like, and clerk Louise Lockeman was most ear-
nest about it all . . . Even the judging was done by students, Carolyn Salis-
bury, Doris Staebler, and Louise Corn serving in that capacity . . . Everyone
agreed it was a hard-fought fight and the tie wasn't much of a surprise ...
The winners were the Independent teams made up of Helen Harp and
Mary Redden, co-captains, Sally Kenny, Barbara Middlewood, Frances Al-
recht and Barning and the Kappa team under Tink Johnson including "Liz"
Rorke, Louise Lambert, Ruth Loebs, Barb. Mitchell and Betty Hopkins .. .
Betsy Barbour came in third, and
we're convinced it was more than
partly due to house-manager Eliza-
beth White's leadership . . . It was
a grand meet and the results of the
telegraphic meet are still to come in
.. Considering the records broken
we really should rate fairly high . .
