Steady Nerves Required For Riflery

Women's Rifle Shooting Popular Panhellenic Council Senior Ball Ticket Sale
-t To Continue This Week
AtUivriy.ic WoldWa ~1es Appointiient sbighl hogotti ek
At UniversitSinceWorld arAn extended Senior Ball ticket sale
i is being held throughout this week.

Rifle shooting has become an increasingly popular sport for women
at the University since the days in which it was first inaugurated. It is
for those who have steady nerves, and once a person is a "crack shot"
it is almost an impossibility for him to lose his nerve. Many practice
riflery for the pure love of the sport, and the joy of hitting the bull's eye.
Others deem it necessary in cases of emergency.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the eighth
in a series of articles discussing the
proper technique in the different wom-
en's sports given on campus.
Back in the days when Michigan
women first brazenly painted their
lips, cut their hair and wore their
skirts above their knees, they looked
around Barbour gymnasium for some-
thing virile and difficult to do.'
What could be more masculine,
more daring, than shooting? With a
vehemence and enthusiasm not us-
ually found in women's sports, rifle
shooting started and grew by leaps
and bounds during the first few years
after the World War. Other women's
colleges were taking up this sport
and the Michigan woman would not
be outdone. The sport has remained
one of the most popular in the W.A.A.
Hold Intercollegiate Matches
Today rifle shooting is the only
woman's intercollegiate sport on the
Michigan campus. Although field
hockey and basketball do have some
intercollegiate matches, rifle is the
only sport which devotes one of its
seasons entirely to telegraphic
matches with other colleges. The
club is sponsored by the National
Rifle Association, which, in turn, is
sponsored by the United States gov-
All women who participate contend
that it is a fascinating sport if one
learns to shoot and shoot well. Some
women improve quickly, some slowly,
and it usually happens that those who
make the most progress at the first
are the ones who become the best
shots. Therefore, one can easily dis-
cover whether one has the aptitude
necessary for rifle shooting. It has
also been noticed that women do not

remain interested, as they do in ten-
nis and golf, unless they become pro-
Nerve, Muscular Control Needed
The chief attribute is nerve and
muscular control. Absolute eye-arm
coordination is necessary at the start
(which eliminates all those with nerv-
ous tendencies), and practice also
trains for steady nerves.
Women practice all the regular
shooting positions, sitting, kneeling,
standing and prone. Only the prone
position is used for matches. The pro-
per position is to lie at approximately
a 45 degree angle to the line of di-
rection of the target and support one
arm by means of a sling.
If you are a pacifist and have a hor-
ror of guns, stay away from Palmer
Field house during the winter sport
season when Major Kelley of the
R.O.T.C. teaches the art of perfect
shooting. But if you possess a naive
interest in how to manipulate a rifle
in case of emergency (which might
mean most anything) come down and

Cam>ing Trips
Held Bi Weekly
In Outing Club
The fifth successful year for the
Graduate Outing Club included many
interesting and unique activities.
Every other Sunday, and some holi-
days, the club met to picnic and to
take long hikes over various parts of
the countryside.
During the season the club went on
canoe trips to Patterson Lake, Island
Lake and Silver Lake. Their hikes
took them to Scio, Camp Newkirk, Sa-
line Valley Farms, Dexter and Island
Park. Regular camping-out trips
were held at which the members
gathered their own wood and cooked
their meals over a camp fire. For the
more athletic, the activities included
baseball and swimming in a lake, or
if the weather prohibited an outdoor
wrip, in the Union pool.
The club has made plans to con-
tinue its activity during the Summer
