Women's Golf
Started On Old
Orchard Links
Classes Began In 1927;
Mrs. Stewart Hanley
Taught First Class
Fore!-and the golf classes in the
fall of 1927 started the rounds of the
Old Orchard Course. Eating apples
that fell from the 23 apple trees that
dotted the course, they learned how
to swing a club.
One hundred and seven women
came out for the golf that first sea-
son when Mrs. Stewart Manley, Mich-
igan State champion, came to Ann
Arbor once a week to teach the fun-
damentals of the game.
Since 1927 the number in the
classes has grown steadily, and more
than 200 freshman women are now
taking golf for their physical educa-
tion requirement. There are 10 classes
for the arts college students and three
for the school of education, each of
which meets twice a week. Mrs.
Hanley has worked with the groups
since the first season. She came to
live in Ann Arbor in 1931 to become
officially a member of the physical
education staff.
Club Sponsors Matches
The Pitch and Putt Club, which
was started last year, is an elective
group, organized to offer a means
for women to continue practice and
enjoy match golf. More than 20
women belong to this club, which
sponsors matches with other golf
clubs in the vicinity.
That women are becoming more
and more interested in golf is evident
to anyone who plays the game. A sur-
very was made in 1931 by a club man-
ufacturer which showed that of all
the lessons given during the period of
1930-31, 80 per centhofthem were
given to women. These statistics
might prove that men do not take
lessons in order to play golf and
tht w omen do-but they also show
how important women think it is to
play golf and play correctly.
1s Social Attribute
Golf has become an exceedingly
important social attribute. It is the
one sport which is played north, east,
south and west, at all country clubs.
Only the non-athletic type of wom-
en can appreciate how great an asset
it is to be able to drive a ball a 100
yards, make two chip shots to the
green, sink a 10 foot putt, walk the
18 holes and not be exhausted. Golf,
however is, not limited to the "weak-
lings" in sport; it is played by the
sturdiest, mastered by veritable ath-
As far as health is concerned, golf
fulfills all requirements. If furnishes,
according to the physical education
authorities, "the moderate outdoor
type of exercise that is needed for
health." One reason for its univer-
sal appeal is that it can be played by
men and women of all ages, and is
tlie one game that a person can con-
tinue practicing as he progresses in
Practice Makes Perfect
The more you play, the better you
play, and the better you like the
game, so say the golfers, particularly
those of the Pitch and Putt Club,
They urge more women to participate
in the tournament matches held each
fall and spring, from which the four
best scores are taken to compose the
team of the club. If after learning
the game, and after some diligent
practice, you cannot make the team,
you at least will be able to enter into
the fun of sports with anyone who
likes the open air.

Tailored Suits
Sharkskin, Linen Weaves
Are Cool And Practical;
White Is Popular
Whatever your plans for the sum-
mer may be, cool, practical tailored
suits and two-piece ensembles will
prove a blessing. While traveling, or
trying to look well-groomed for a
new job, their chic and versatility
will help to keep the spirits unwilted.
Fitted jacket suits are often cut;
with swinging skirts, half-belts and
a single button. Even the names of
new fabric weaves like, sharkskin and
silk linen-are breezy and refresh-
ing. With conventional white suits
either dark tailored silk blouses or
brilliant prints will accent the crisp-
ness of the ensembles.
Leaves Used As Buttons
An especially interesting suit has a
short jacket of imported linen but-
toned with patent-leather leaves. Al
rust polka-dot crepe swing skirt, a
scarf of the same material and a
I narrow patent belt complete the col-
or contrast. Another jacket suit
of silk shantung consists of a con-
fetti-showered jacket and a navy
Brilliant col& against a white as
smooth and cool as vanilla ice cream
is the motif of new two-piece en-
sembles. A white silk shirtwaist
dress flaunts a silk jacket in a wild,
bright plaid with a plaid handker-
chief peeping out of a breast pocket,
