THE MICHIGAN DAILY
THE SPORTING LADY.
By BENCH WARMER
Recreational leadership has ended and camp certificates were given to
124 out of the 40 in the class . . . Orchids to the winnahs, who included
Harriet Beecher, Jean Drake, Mary Goodrich, Helen Hirshey, Edna Kan-
delin, Betty Keenan, Sally Kenny, Florence Michlinski, Rowena Sheffer,
Louise Stone, Farley Ullrich, Elizabeth White, Carolyn Priehs, Brenda Par-
kinson, Norma Curtis, Lorena Hilbert, Ragene Lamming, Louise Lockeman,
Florence Lucas, Miriam Newman, Frances Osborn, Sybil Swartout, Grace
Wilson and Faith Watkins . .. What with canoe trips, bird walks at 4 a.m.,
star gazing, soap carving and the like, we're ready to concede they've really
earned it and wish them plenty of luck in landing summer positions after
their hard work ... .
The colored moving pictures taken of women's sports several weeks ago
were shown Thursday and yesterday . . They turned out so well, that
we're rating them above the "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" for photographic
interest. . . They'll be shown again in the fall during orientation week, so
the freshmen women can see what they've got to look forward to in the
field of sport ....
A Summary Of Field Day .. .
It was too bad that rain prevented the Field Day Monday, what with
all the entrants there and "raring to go" . . . The baseball managers pessi-
mistically prophesied that they would never again be able to get their entire
teams there, but they seemed to have no difficulty Thursday, when the game
finally came off . . . Pete Hartwig started out keeping score in great style
and called the names of the batters-up regularly but by time half of the
18 runs were scored for Betsy in the second inning, she was having her hands
full trying to keep up with the scoring alone . .. It took so long to make the
total of 77 runs which the teams scored that it was after six when they fin-
ished, much to the anxiety of the girls from Betsy Barbour, who were
worried about getting dinner .,.

Miss Li, who won a $500 award for
entries in essays and tne drama did
not seem particularly astonished
over her victory. She said modestly,
however, that she thought any
Chinese student could do it if he
cared to write.
In a recent interview, Miss Li stated
the real motivation o, writing "The
Grand Garden," the drama entered,
was caused by the fact that she is
one among many who want to estab-
lish a new China with the inheritance
and civilization which their forefa-
thers have handed down to them and
with the zeal, the blood, and the
fire that has been produced in reac-
tion to the injustices done to them by
the imperalistic powers.
This statement can be explained by
the fact that "The Grand Garden" is
a four act play dealing with a social
problem. The characters are Chinese,
as is the background. Some of the
characters and some of the episodes
are taken from "Dream of the Red
Chamber," one of the mnost famous
novels in China.
As stated in the preface to the
manuscript ,the purpose of the play
is to reveal the young soul and the
animated spirit of the new China. It
deals with the problem of the passing
of the old order and rising of the new.
The four essays entered were crit-
icisms of Chinese literary works. They
are entitled: "The Literary Theory of
Confucius," "Wong Chung and His
Theory on Truth, Good, Beauty,"
"Figuration of the Mind and Carving

Rain, Rain, Go Away. .
Frances Sutherland came out ahead in two contests Monday .. . She was
awarded the trophy given by Mrs. Stewart Hanley for the girl showing the
most improvement and was also the winner of the golf ball which was first
prize in the putting contest . . . Frances toured the nine-hole putting green
with 17 putts ,three better than the score of 20 which won for Louise Nack
last year . .. Marjorie Merker, as second-prize winner, also received a golf
ball with a score of 18 . . . In spite of the rain, there was a good turn out of
players, and several people played while it was pouring down the hardest . .
Perhaps Betty Ross was just as satisfied with the rain Monday, since it
enabled her to play the three finals of the tennis tournament on successive
days rather than one right after another oi Field Day. . . Merida Hobart de-
feated her in the singles final on Tuesday, but Betty came back to share
the women's doubles title with her partner, Virginia Zaiser, by beating Hope
Hartwig and Jean Bonisteel in the match on Thursday ...
The last tournament of the ill-fated field day that
was planned for last Monday and came to such a wet end
finished yesterday with Merida Hobart and Bill Smith
defeating Betty Ross and Parker Davies 6-3, 6-1 in the
mixed doubles finals ... With many long rallies, the game
was an excellent one, especially from the spectators view-
Miss Hobart's tennis, while rarely spectacular, seems
to usually come out on top . .. In four rounds of singles, she lost only five
games, three of which went to Lola Bartley in the semi-finals.. . She can be
easily ranked as one of the best lobbers on campus and her placing is
excellent . . . By the simple method of making her opponent run from
side to side and outwitting her by tricky placing, she rarely loses . .. Miss
Hobart has won last spring's, this fall's, and this spring's singles tennis
Miss Ross, on the other hand, has an extremely effective forehand
chop while her partner Parker Davies had without doubt the best serve of
the four players. . . He was inclined slightly to crowd Miss Ross a bit, other-
wise cooperating well . . . Miss Ross was runner up in last fall's and this
spring's women's singles . . . Mr. Smith's best shots were usually drives, al-
though his smashes were beautifully executed . . . His forehand drive was
(one of the high spots of the game ...
Out In The Wilds. . .
It was a slightly annoyed group of women who left the W.A.A. Building
Memnorial day for the Recreational Leadership house party . . . It seems that
the bus, scheduled three weeks in. advance to pick them up at 12:30 p.m.
completely forgot about them until 1 p.m. . . . On finally arriving at their
destination at the White Lodge Country Club Janet Lambert, Betty
Whitney and Miriam Newman led a grateful cheer .
The lunch that Caroline Preise and her committee prepared, though
welcomed by the women, was doubly appreciated by the uninvited mascot
of the group, a white goat called Billy, who caused much excitement and
whose only good act was gobbling banana peels .... He dashed under Miss
Peaseley's bed Sunday morning and neither force nor persuasion could move
him ... And he became extremely unpopular when he beat everyone to Sun-
day dinner . . . and attempted to finish the carefully-fixed salad in a few
hasty gulps .. .
Dinner Time Stories . .
Dinner time arrived and 1o and behold! parts of the dinner were still in
Miss Hartwig's car in Ann Arbor . . . Obligingly and in good spirits Miss
Peaseley and Mary Goodrich took to the road again . . . Upon arriving, it was
discovered that Miss Burr was already on the way out to the lake. . . Kabobs
-steak, potatoes and onion wrapped in bacon and cooked on forks-plus
frostbites made life much happier . . . By the large fireplace in the lodge
overlooking the lake Brenda Parkinson used remote control to cook her kabob
and Faith Watkins yanked her kabob out of the fire after a back-breaking
wait muttering, "It's really raw, but I'll call it rare" .. .
The scheduled bird walk took place at 4:30 a.m. and everyone went back
to bed except Louise Stone, Louise Lockeman, Sally Kenny and Miss Hart-
wig who went out armed for sleep with a 1934 Gargoyle, several blankets and
Miss Peaseley's alarm . . . Louise Stone got violent about the Gargoyle and
knocked the clock into 12 feet of water . . . And the story goes that it kept
ticking and the alarm went og as set at 6:45 a.m. . . . Louise Lockeman res-
cued it at the morning swim about 8 a.m.
