Many Guests Expected To

Attend Annual Homecoming Celebration

_.______Y. ___._ ______,. _ _______ _ -, ,


_ -.- By BENCH WARMER --
And Sporting Lady wishes to announce her entrance into the movies
this week .. . It seems that over a thousand feet of film were used in taking
pictures of the different activities of the W.A.A.. . . They'll be shown later
throughout the state and even before that the W.A.A. will have an informal
showing at the W.A.B. . . . So here's a chance to add to your list of favorite
movie stars .. There may be a Garbo or a Dietrich hidden in our
midst . - -
Quite a few amusing incidents happened during the course of the two
afternoons the pictures were taken . . . Wednesday and Thursday . . .
Wednesday's sun presented difficulties when it coyly disappeared every time
the camera man was ready to take a picture . . . And as soon as the group
had decided to postpone the picture indefinitely, it would cheerily come
forth from behind a cloud and beam happily at the world in general . . .
The tap dancing group consisting of Hope Hartwig, Mary Katherine
Brown, Patricia Scroggie and Magna Mountford had quite a time
In the first place, with the cool wind blowing on the terrace, they got colder
and colder in their brief tap dancing costumes and then Mary Katherine
got a bad case of stage fright and swallowed her gum to everyone's con-
sternation including Dr. Bell, who wanted to know'how she felt . . . We're
still wondering if it stuck her insides together . . .
Clothes Make Ihe Woma .n.
Wednesday, there was modeling for the different sports . . . Sally Kenny
represented swimming in a clever two piece yellow ubber bathing suit con-
sisting of a halter and pleated shorts . . . Wooden clogs and a blue bathing
cap completed the outfit.- '
Another clever ensemble was that worn by Betty Greve representing
riding . . . Loraine Lambert illustrated the costume worn for baseball . . -
Elizabeth White in black shorts, regulation white fitted fencing jacket
and carrying a mask, a foil and a fencing glove showed the costume of the
co-ed interested in fencing . . . She didn't seem nearly so violent about it
though as Harold Teen's Lulu .. .
Beatrice Lovejoy represented the dancing club in a r-ust-colored outfit
Betty Lyons followed her with her bird -and racket, showing the bad-
minton interest on campus .
s'" Hope Hartwig, carrying a bow and arrow typified
the archery interests . . . Louise Nack in a plain jacket
*- and checked skirt followed for golf . . You could tell
by the way she gripped her club she was a real golfer ...
Mary Jane Mueller wore the typical hockey costume
in navy blue with a yellow shirt underneath, shin guards
and a hockey stick. And we just haven't time for the
6rest of the sports . . .
Raincoats and umbrellas were in evidence at the beginning of the base-
ball games Tuesday . . . The rain considertely stopped just long enough
for the games, however, and the sun shone brightly .
Tri-Delt and Betsy Barbour were playing on one diamond . . . Helen
McLane, in a white linen suit and a red blouse, explained the rules before-
hand and umpired for the game . . . Sybil Swartout, pitching for Betsy,
executed some miraculous catches, one of them while in the act of skidding
on the grass, in which she made a successful throw to first . . . Elizabeth
White and Lenore Johnson seemed destined to make home runs . . . Betty
Wahl, Tri-Delt captain, was unfortunately disabled in the first part of the
game but her team kept the ball flying and brought the score at the end of
the game up to 24 to Betsy Barbou'r's 26 .-.
Just A Pass Ball. .
Everyone seemed to be enjoying the game between Sorosis and Jordan
. . . Even the losers . . . At one crucial moment with Jordan up at bat and
all the bases full, the ball just bounced around the field and runner after;
runner tore into home amidst loud cheers while Miss Hartwig hopelessly
pounded the ground crying, "One base on a pass ball." .. .
Marion Edgerton did some catching and hittiigg for Sorosis which was
good to see . .. With the score at 15-7 in favor of Jordan at the beginning
of the third inning, Susan Haviland made a timely homer, bringing two
other runs as well as her own. . . Jane O'Ferrall in snappy blue suspenders,
made her share of the runs . . . Katharine Woidka and'Lillian Scott, as
pitcher and catcher for Jordan, made things particularly difficult for the
Sorosis batters .. .
One of Janet Allington's long hits went so high and far that Lucille John-
ston, a mere speck in the distance, caught it, much to her surprise .. .
Both teams held their own thrcugh the game and Jordan came out on top,
18-11 .. .
Further developments in the archery tournament
. . . Last week Elizabeth While beat Jane Reinert and
Jean Gourlay defeated Louise Lockeman . . . Lillian
Scott beat Eva Goldman and Rosemary Klub beat Lu-
cille Flaum . . However, everyone is still in the tour-
nament and the winner is yet to be picked . . . All
back matches should be played off as soon as possible,
according to Barbara Eppstein, manager .. .
Palmer Field was dotted with players, spectators
and lawn mowers Thursday afternoon as three baseball games got under way
. .. Kappa Delta and Alpha Xi Delta got a good start and home runs were
prevalent throughout the game . . . June Holt and "Peg" Shaw were pitcher
and catcher respectively for Alpha Xi Delta and Evalyn Tripp and Helen
Shapland for Kappa Delta . .. The game turned out a victory for Kappa
Delta 27 to 11 . ...
Alpha Chi Omega and the Independents played the game which com-
pleted the lineup of the second step of the A tournament. . . Brenda Parkin-
son. Sally Kenny, Louise Paine, Virginia Donahue and Mary Redden put their

talents on the side of the Independent team, while Eva Spenser, Marie Mette,
Jean Steere, Mary Adams, Dorothy Lehmann, Jane Freese and Margaret
Waterston played for the Alpha Chi's.
A lournament Progr esses . .
The game ended with a score of 40 to 8 in favor of the Independents . .
Alpha Gamma Delta beat Gamma Phi Beta by default Thursday, putting
them in the quarter finals of the B tournament along with the Thetas.
At a joint meeting of the ncn's and women's physical education clubs
Tuesday, Dr. Howaird McClusky spoke on travelling in Europe.
From what we hear about the Crop and Saddle horse show May 23, it is
going to be a lot of fun . . . Don't be bashful if you don't belong to the
club and are interested in trying your skill on horseback . . . Anyone who
wants to enter will be most welcome, for the more the merrier . . . If you
don't feel particularly comfortable on a horse's back, come and watch the
show . . . There wihl be plenty of jumping and novelties . . . You can get
to the fair grounds for ten cents if you come in a taxi with four other
people . . . There will be a supper ride for club members next ,Wednesday
. ..Meet in front of Barbour gym as usual at 5:30 .
And the tennis singles have advanced to the third
round . . . Those still in are Merida Hobart, who de
eted Patricia Haf', Frances Bennell, who beat Mary
edden in a contested match, 7-5, 6-2 . . . Louise Paine
