Everybody was out at the ball game last Tuesday. . . We counted at least
sixty people around the baseball diamonds and almost as many more on
the tennis courts . . . It was a beautiful spring day . . . Not a cloud in
the sky . . . A sporting atmosphere pervaded the place, with the archery
targets in the background and balls, bicycles and arrows filling the air. .
In one cornei of the field Helen Newberry and Alpha Gamma Delta were
having a royal battle .. . We found later that Newberry won 34-20 .. .
Lois Spreen starred with her long hits and homers .. . Barbara Kanouse,
pitcher for Alpha Gamma Delta started fanning the batters out in the
first inning. . . Betty St. John started the day off for Newberry with a triple
at the first bat . . . Rosemary McKay, Ruth Clark, and Norma Curtis brought
in several runs in spite of Peg Johnson's catching at first base . . . With
Carolyn Salisbury pitching and Florence Rogers catching, Ona Thornton
started out with a run for Alpha Gamma Delta . . . But then we had to see
how Sorosis and Tri-Delt were getting along . . .
We found Kay Andrus catching for Tri-Delt and Janet Allington up to
bat . .. She hit a high fly which took her well on her way around the
bases . . . Nancy Quirk's bright blue ankle socks were conspicuous as she
sailed around the diamond . . . Patty Haf looked smart in navy blue shorts
and a maroon sweater as she pitched for the Tri-Delts . . . Sorosis won
that game 40-24 .. .
We went next to the Betsy Barbour vs. Jordan game and found the score,
at the end of the fourth inning, 11-11 . . . They had been planning to play
only four innings but had to extend the game to pick a winner . . . Sybil
Swartout was pitching for Betsy and hitt-ig some long ones when it came
her turn to bat . . . Elizabeth Howard stepped up and took the bat in
shaking fingers, saying that she could never hit the ball . . . She hit it almost
out of sight and someone remarked, "Howard doesn't connect often, but when
she does, Oh Boy!"
Jordan Wins By A Hair.. ..
Betty Ann Messenger, Madeline and Virginia Krieghoff, Ruth Hart-
mann, Floydene Beardslee, Lucille Johnston, Katharine Woidka, Lillian
Scott and Lucie Killin played for Jordan . . . At the end of the game the
score was 20-19, favor of Jordan . . . Close shave, that .. .
Martha Cook beat the Kappas Wednesday by default and the Kappa
Deltas defaulted to the Independents because of an incomplete team . . .
'Let's get the players out. . . Alpha Chi Omega beat Alpha Xi Delta Wednes-
day by a score of 45-5 .. .
Three games were scheduled for Thursday but one turned out to be a
default, in which Kappa Alpha Theta put the Delta Zetas out of the tour-
nament. . . Alpha Phi beat Gamma Phi Beta 16-4, and Mosher beat Delta
Gamma 12-3... f
Mosher and the Thetas have progressed the farthest in the tournament
to date . . . Mosher has reached the quarter finals in the A tournament
and Kappa Alpha Theta the same in the B tournament . . . Let us remind
you that the final game between the winners of the tournaments will be
played on the afternoon of Lantern Night .. .
Crop and Saddle had its first supper and ride and also its first casualty
of the year Wednesday night . . . There was no trouble getting the twelve
girls which were necessary in order to have a supper ride . . . Exactly twenty
gathered on Barbour gym steps and most of them were there five minutes
The aforementioned casualty was fortunately not serious . . . Peg Carl-
son's horse worked himself up into such a fright at nothing that he jumped
several feet and left Peg sitting in the road . . . Being a good sport, she
just got up, dusted herself off with a smile, and mounted the horse again . . .
If she were not in Crop and Saddle we would say that she was just another
step on the way toward being a good rider .. .
And Were They Hungry.. ..
A delicious buffet supper was enjoyed by everyone at Mullisons' after
the ride . . . The main topic of conversation was the horse show which is to
take place May 23 . . . Let us emphasize that anyone may enter the show
whether a member of Crop and Saddle or not . . . Just call Eleanor French
at Betsy Barbour .. .
And the sunnier the day, the more the tennis addicts . . . At least that's
the impression you get from watching the tennis courts fill up over on
Palmer Field . . . And we hear the summery weather is even managing to
get people up at hours like 5:30 a.m. to get in that extra practice before
the big game . . . To you who are not aware of it, that's the function of
the backboard on the cement courts over there . . .
Monday was anything but a gloomy day judging from the gay chatter
floating across the tennis courts . . . We saw Barbara Heath and Ann
Gifford chatting before starting a match in that new game Miss Peaseley
made up . . . It's really very clever . . . You volley back and forth in just
the service courts and score a great deal the same as in a game of table
tennis . . . It serves the double purpose of helping your game and still being
loads of fun.-..
Martha Dynes and Margaret Curtis were attempting it and seemed to
be about the best there . . . Cecile Franking and Carol Golden would have
come in a close second in any poll . . . They'd continue long enough to
make you tired just watching .. .
Miss Peaseley emerged just long enough from a pair of dark glasses and
a heavy blue sweat shirt (evidently to spite the weather) and some sunny
yellow shorts to tell us that tennis was certainly on the upbound . . . She
tried to think up a name for her new game, but it proved too great an effort, i
even with the great number of suggestions which came from an appreciative
videlines. . .

T ournament Notes - .
Further down the field Adele Gardner and Margaret Veenboer were
playing off their match for the singles division of the tennis tournament . .
Margaret finally managed to end up the victor . . . We're not so sure of
Kate Landrum's and Jane Willoughby's fates as their games were hotly
contested . . .
Miss Hartwig and Hope were practicing all kinds of shots . . . We lost
track after they'd tried serving, backstroke and volley . . . Hope stopped
long enough to tell us more about the tournament . . .
The finals for all divisions of the tournament will be played off on Lan-
tern Night with umpires, ball boys and everything . . . Right now, in order to
hurry the results through, Jean Bonisteel, Frances Redden, Magaret Water-
ston and Merida Hobart have been appointed to help . . .
The first round of the singles has been played out and include Mary
Redden, Louise Paine, Helen Linden, Margaret Veenboer, Frances Redden,
Caroline Woodford, Hope Hartwig, Jean Curtis, Margaret Waterston Betsy
Ross, Louise Bartley, Frances Benell, Patricia Haff, and Merida Hobart . . .
In the doubles division Betsy Ross and Virginia Zaiser, Betty Lauer and
Betsey Anderson, Grace Gray and Adele Gardner, Hope Hartwig and Jean
Bonisteel, Jane Willoughby and Winnie Arnold, Ruth Friedman and Mar-
garet Merkel, and Floydene Beardslee and Gertrude Penhale still remain . . .
nothing's happened in the mixed doubles as yet, but we're told that once
they get started there will be plenty of action . . .
The Ann Arbor Women's Tennis Club has challenged the Women's
tennis club to a match . . . This is a little difficult as the club is still in
formation, so if -you re interested sign up on the paper posted in the W.A.A.
for that purpose . . . The club will get together and get six to represent
them in the near future . . . And it offers lots of advantages like discussions
and such .. .
Are You Superstitiou s... .
We hope that 13 is really not as unlucky as it is reputed to be, because
that's the number of girls who qualified for the spring golf tournament . .
Several of the winners of the fall tournament were included in the group . . .
Kay Johnston, Louise Nack, and Doris Mosesson all qualified, as did Sheila
Burgher, Betty Counter, Helen Johnson, and Virginia Smith . . . Others were

The annual Architects' Ball which
ook place last night in Barbour Gymn-
nasium, was made additionally gay
by the fancy dress costumes and the
summer formals that were noticed on
the dance floor.

During intermission we saw Mar-

pringlike in her turquoise lace dress.
And Dorothy Corson, '38, was an-
other person we noticed in blue. She
was dancing with Paul Simpson, '37.
Mar ion Fitzgerald, '38, was among

In addition to the spring formals
seen on the floor, there were many
Jancy dress costumes, of all kinds and
descriptions. Helen McRae, '39, wore
ESTELLE WINWOOD a cowboy outfit, and she and Tal
