In Rifle Class
Membership in the NRA is offered
to Michigan women. But in this case
those three letters stand for Na-
tional Rifle Association.'
Rifle is one of the nmany sports
offered to university women. On this
campus no fee is charged for it, as is
customary other places. Ammuni-
tion, guns (six Springfield army rifles
with 22 barrels) and targets are given
free of charge.
The rifle season lasts from Decem-
ber to March and this year there are
25 students who fire for half-hour
periods twice a week at the range
near the Women's Athletic Build-
ing. This is more than twice the
number who turned out last year.
Frances Odell, '38, is captain 'of the
team and Major Kelly of the R.O.T.C.

"Clear your head with the gentle
odor of your favorite scent," cries one
girl, who claims that studying, with
a small bottle of your favorite per-
fume held about a half inch away
from your nose is a sure-fire route
to more effective studying. This
semester will be her first time she has

Try 'Rain Hat'
Another person has, according to
her own statement, found that study-
ing with her "rain hat" on is ex-I
tremely beneficial in getting results
on that final. That she firmly be-
lieves in this system is proved by
the fact that she laboriously drags
back each year a very dilapidated
brown hat, which she uses as a "rain
hat" throughout the year. This meth-
od, she says, is good, despite the fact
that one's friends raise their eye-I
brows and tap their foreheads.

There are so many different kinds
of guns and sites that interesting col-

n gen And miarchen
The differences between German
sagen and marchen were explained
yesterday by Prof. Ernst A. Philipp-
son in an illustrated lecture on
"Rheinsagen and rheinische Roman-,
tik" which he gave at the meeting
of the Deutscher Verin in Angell
Professor Philippson, who is an au-
thority on the Rheinland, explained
that both types of writings are leg-
ends, but that the sagen are pessi-
mistic fables usually connected with
definite persons and places, while the
marchen are optimistic fairy tales,
With happy endings, concerning sym-
bolic personalities. These legends
were revived by the nineteenth cen-
tury Romanticists, Professor Phil-
ippson said, who added touches of
their own to them. It is probable
that if it had not been for these ro-
mantic writers the legends would
have been lost.
Slides of castles and cathedrals
along the Rhine were shown and
Professor Philippson told some of the
fables and stories which have sprung
up around these edifices. He told
how the people believe that the mas-
ter builder of the cathedral at Co-
logne sold his soul to the Devil who
in the form of a puppy dog came to
