The Primrose 'Path

"Off to the hunt!" cried Miss Primrose ... galloping into her flowered
organdy formal and laying on another circle of green eye shadow to her
h'eady dazzling lenses . .. She swept several dozen fraternity pins . .. the

an hour . . . They plodded off on swiftly falling arches to a round of
fraternity parties ...
Steaming up Hill Street they came suddenly upon the Psi U hovel ..

along with clouds of smoke . . Miss Primrose hesitated on the threshold
but "Her Own" pressed boldly on . .. Into the shadows of death, into the
mouth of hell . . . he muttered under his breath . . . Once inside they
pee'red through the smoke screen which appeared to be issuing from

Aandolph and Chuck Coe went coughing by . . . with Marian Dailey and
Sandy McPherson . . . Betty Crandall with flowers in her hair (and
Bill Lord) was putting her whole sole into the dancing . . . The walls of
the house were black with stags, Miss Primrose noted with a thrill of
pleasure . . . and she dropped her left eye softly at a tall blond youth
with curly eyelashes who answered to the name of Paul . . . with no
results . . Doris Bolton floated by on the arm of Fletcher Platt . .

the smoke like a fiery brand brought to life by Jim Hammond . . .

match from Olga Madar, 6-2, 6-1,
while Leone Cartwright lost to Jane

victorious, 6-0.
A return match is scheduled for
Wednesday, May 26 at Ypsilanti, Miss

Students Will Form
Intercultural Group
A series of conferences with the
aim of organizing an intercultural
council for next year are being held
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, counsel to
foreign students, announced yester-
"The time is ripe for forming a
plan for the more systematic ex-
change of ideas between the various
national groups on campus, 'ind be-
tween the foreign and the Ameiican
students," Professor Nelson said. Fif-
teen students, representing several
foreign countries and the United
States, are now working on the plan.
The intercultural council to be
formed, which will include both
American and foreign students, will
work with the counselor to formulate
a unified program.

Equipment Needed
For Sports Exhibit
In connection with the centennial
exhibit in women's sports to be spon-
sored by the department of physical
education for women, Miss Dorothy
Beise, instructor, has issued a call for
old sports equipment.
The exhibit will take the different
decades from 1890 on and show how
the more popular sports and costumes
have changed since then. As an ex-
ample she cited the change in tennis
racquets from the old-fashioned, big-
handled, long and narrow-faced
racket to the modern stream-lined
The equipment will be taken good
care of and immediately returned to
the owner following the exhibition
Miss Beise said. She requested that all
equipment be sent to her at Barbour

Ever since Helen Wills Moody took
the limelight in women's tennis, the
game has been becoming more and
more like the man's game. Before
Mrs. Moody's time it was almost un-
heard of for a woman to make a
practice of going to the net. One
ranking player in the early 1900's
even used an underhand service and
got away with it?

First Individual Spot
Tennis was the first individual
sport to be taught to women at the
University of Michigan. It was made
part of the curriculum long before
golf, swimming or archery. At pres-
ent the tennis classes are divided into
three types-beginning, intermediate
and advanced. Rudiments of the
strokes are taught as well as theory
and strategy of the game.
The increasing amount of mixed
play has contributed toward speeding
up the woman's. game. A glance at
the Palmer Field tennis courts any
afternoon proves that the Michigan
woman prefers to match her skill and
wits against a member of the opposite
sex. Mixed doubles play forces a
woman to develop her net game, for
when her partner serves, she must
take her place in the forecourt to
guard the net.
Women's doubles, mixed doubles
and women's singles tournaments are
