THE SPORTING LADY
By BENCH WARMER -
Have you leanings in the aquatic line? ... Would you like a swimming
p.ool all for yourselves . . . In other words there's talk of a new -swimming
pool being erected at the W.A.B. and your opinions, enthusiastic approval
and cooperation in raising money for it are all that are needed to put
it through . .. Here's the first thing . . . Sign the ballot at the bottom
of the page and send it or take it to Barbour Gym as soon as possible so
the people in charge of it all can know your feelings about it ...
Exciting rumors have been going around about the W.A.A. Sports Spread
next Thursday . . . We have been hearing wonderful things about the
decorations . . . Lovely spring flowers, place cards, and everything that goes
with a banquet . . . The best part of it is that anyone can come, whether
she has been out for sports this year or not . . . The tickets are only 35
cents, which covers food and entertainment . . . The place is the Barbour
Gym banquet hall and it starts at 6 o'clock.
All those who have won athletic points or awards of any kind should
take special notice . . . Dr. Bell will present the winners' cup for volley ball
to A.E.Phi, the intramural basketball championship to Zone 5, and all the
class numerals and M's . . . The six girls who won free playing passes from
the University golf course will receive recognition too . . . The banquet is
to be very informal . . . Everyone is to wear sports clothes ..-.
Check Up On Points..*.
All those who haven't yet handed in their W.A.A. points should hand
them in on a slip of paper in one of the boxes in Barbour Gym and W.A.B.
before Tuesday night . . . Tickets for the banquet may be bought from
Louise Lockeman, Hope Hartwig, Louise Paine, Janet Allington, Betty Greve,
or Lois Spreen . . . Better get them right away because the space is
limited . . .
Much news from the badminton fas this week . . . The University
team lost to the Ann Arbor Club Wednesday evening by a score of'six matches
to three . . . Very sad, but we can console ourselves with the thought that
the result might have been different if there had been time to play the
last four mixed doubles matches . . . Because we expected to gather in the
points in that division . . . Anyway, to get down to the bitter facts, we won
only one of the four women's doubles . . . Louise Paine, women's badminton
manager, and Margot Goodrich defeated Miss Hilda Burr and Mrs. A. E.
Boak, 15-2, 14-15, and 15-2 . . . In the other matches, Miss Jean Kyer and
Mrs. Richard Coursey beat Caroline Woodford and Jane Quick, 15-10 and 18-1
16; Miss Marie Hartwig and Mrs. Carl vanquished Betty Lyon and Brendaa
Parkinson, 15-6, and 15-0, while Miss Sellew and Miss Crittendon defeated
Floydene Beardslee and Helen Zbinden, 15-13 and 15-9 . -
Ann Arbor also won two of the three men's double matches . . . Mr.
Carl and Mr. James eked out a victory over Harry Kasabach and Randolphc
Wilkens, the score being 15-10, 10-15, and 15-12, while Mr. Boak and Mr.i
Emery beat Paul Coursey and Charles Emling, 17-14 and 15-10 . . . In the sole
University win, Eustace Fox and Harry Kasabach defeated Capt. CourseyI
and Mr. Mack ...f
They're Climbing. ..
' The ladder tournament is expected to close soon . . . The biggest jumpc
has been made by Louise Lockman, who has climbed from twelfth to eighth
place . . . With honorable mention to Louise Paine, with an advance from
eighth to sixth . . . And don't forget to sign up for the beginners' tourna-
ment starting Monday. . . The list is up in Barbour Gym . . . And oh, yes,'
sign up according to zone, sorority, or dormitory ...t
The members of Club basketball went to a meet in Battle Creek lastX
Saturday. . . At least that was what they were supposed to do. . . Thirteenr
sleepy but ambitious individuals arose at 6 o'clock in the morning and after
a breakfast at Snappy Joes they were ready to leave at 8 o'clock. . . The1
troupe met a terrific fog in Jackson and debating the fact that it was then'
after nine o'clock, that they were supposed to be in Battle Creek at 9:30,
and that they were then not quite half way there, they decided to turna
around and come home -. -
Just to make the day complete, a trailer was found blocking the roadt
home and the athletes were forced to while away an hour in a school house.
When they arrived in Ann Arbor again they had lunch at Snappy Joes and
played basketball in Barbour Gym.. . The names of the adventurers, ast
afterwards divulged, are Ann Schinman, Janet Allington, Virginia Banning,a
Virginia Donahue, Barbara Kanouse, Martha Tillman, Norma Curtis, Betty
Lyon, Sally Kenny, Louise Paine, Miss Hartwig, Miss Peasley and Miss
Here is the chance for sororities, dormitories, and league houses to get
their ping pong stars in the public eye . . . Each house should pick a doubles
team from the best players and sign up for the University tournament in
Barbour Gym. . . Lois Spreen is in Charge .. .
Shooting igh. .
And down to the rifle gallery 'where we heard the results of last week's
meet . . . Michigan tied for second place with the University of Kentucky
(yassuh) while the University of Missouri won with the nearly perfect score
of 498 . . . Contributing a lot to last week's scores were Betty Robertson's 100
(we're told it took her an entire afternoon as she rested after each perfect
hit and waited until the psychological time for another) and Betsy Odell's
98 . . . . You can hear the crack of rifle shots almost any afternoon down
in the W.A.A. building . . . WE found Betty Robertson, Eileen Lay (who,
by the way, shot a 99 while we were there) Helen Cayle and Elizabeth Dedell
all there Thursday . . . And from 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, Cap-
tain G. M. Wallington of the R.O.T.C. gives instruction . . . Here's your
chance to learn_. ..
After asking death in an exciting trip to the Coliseum Thursday and
alternately dodging cars and slipping on the ice, we donned skates and in
a none too steady manner approached Ice Hockey Manager Angie King
who after skating several circles around us deigned to stop and tell the
fundamentals of the game . . . Then we viewed with admiration and no
small degree of envy the smooth skating of "Tink" Johnston . . . Jean Jack-
son, Doris Mosesson, Margaret Shuptrine, and Sitri Mattson were very much
in evidence during the course of the afternoon . . . An amusing event
occurred Tuesday when Miss Burr, who teaches the course found herself
under Tink Johnston . . . as the result of a sudden collision . . . As these
two are the best skaters in the class, it was a considerable surprise to all . . .
Nap Or Meeting.. .
Arriving carly at the W.A.A. Board Meeting which occurred last Wednes-
day, we found Kate Landruin curled up in a corner of one of the sofas sleep-
ing soundly and everyone looking at her enviously . . . eventually enough
arrived to constitute a quorum and Brend Parkinson brought the meeting
to order . . . Mabel Allison brought up the matter of the Winter Sports
House Party to be held at White Lodge Country Club March 7 . . . The
cost will be approximately $1.50 and it will include the afternoon there,
dinner, lodging and breakfast the next morning . . . And they've promised to
get back by noon Sunday . . . The lists are still up in W.A.B. and Barbour
Gym . . . Sally Kenny was officially appointed as Swimming Manager . . .
The athletic conference with high school girls scheduled for April 25 were
widely discussed and the dates of March 9-21 were set for petitioning for
W.A.A. offices . . . That includes executive offices and sport managerships
. . . Then KatK Landrum brought up the matter of the new women's swim-
ming pool that has been discussed for W.A.B. . . . Not much campus opin-
ion on the question has been ventured, so, in order to find the general
consensus of feeling on campus about it all, a ballot was suggested . .
It may be very important so sign now . .

caps and gowns which will take place
Monday, March 23, will be the im-

meeting of Senior Society Tuesday,
according to Betty Greve, '36, presi-
It is urged that seniors make a
special effort to rent their caps and
gowns from the League, and to buy
their collars from Senior Society, says
Other matters to be dealt with in
the meeting are the planning of a
breakfast after Assembly Ball and
consideration of the tapping of new
members at the time of Installation
Banquet. This is the first time that
Senior Society has tapped at the
same time as Mortarboard, honorary
senior society. Formerly, new mem-
bers have been elected by Senior So-
ciety at the fall Assembly Banquet.
Last Tuesday night Miss Alice
Lloyd, dean of women, invited the 14
