Plaids In Style

Popular Sport Of Field Hockey
Was First Played By Women

A plaid two-piece suit is both
practical and attractive for cam-
pus wear., The wide lapels and
tricky scarf add a striking note to
the outfit. A tailored effect is
achieved by the slight fullness at
the shoulders. Completing the out-
fit, is a high-crowned, softie.

"American women are the leaders,"
stated Miss Hilda Burr, instructor of
physical education, while relating
that women took the initiative in in-
troducing field hockey into this coun-
try, a game first played by men in
European Countries.
Staten Island was the scene of the
first hockey game in the United
States where in 1901 a group of
Canadians who had formed a club
played. Miss Burr stated. One year
later Miss Constance Appleby, arriv-
ing from England with hockey equip-
ment, made a tour of the eastern
women's colleges and introduced the
game to the students in this country.
Hockey was then gradually adopt-
ed by most of the colleges and a large
number of high schools. Miss Burr
pointed out that this movement start-
ed in the east and soon spread into
the middle west and finally into the
far west.
However, when the first interna-
tional game was played by a Phila-
delphia team in England, we realized
that we were playing different hockey
than the Europeans played. Conse-
quently, Miss Burr explained, during
the season of 1921-1922 an English
team visited our country and some of
the players stayed here for a few
weeks to coach.
Demand Proper Coaching
The demand for proper coaching
became so great, added Miss Burr,
that in '22 a group of English coaches

Graduate Students Plan

interests, stated Miss Perry.
The outings are under the super-

brary Association will be held in De-
troit, Friday, Oct. 15, it was an-

crossed the sea to tour the country to
teach hockey and to play against an
American team, chosen from clubs in
a number of the large cities.
The United States Field Hockey
Association was formed in 1922 after
this first American tournament was
played in Philadelphia. American
players then began to be recognized,
stated Miss Burr, and our teams trav-
eled to different parts ot fhe world
to demonstrate and teach hockey.
The United States played a large
part in starting the International
Federation of Women's Hockey,
which was formed to further hockey
interests all over the world. Mrs.
Edward Krumbhaar of Philadelphia is
now the international president.
Hockey is also played extensively in
such countries as Germany, France,
Belgium and Denmark, as well as the
United States and England, Miss Burr
The World Conference of hockey
was last year played in Philadelphia,
Miss Burr disclosed. An annual na-
tional tournament is also played and
this will be played in Chicago at
Thanksgiving this year. Sectional

to the Great Lakes sectional tourna-
To Play Match Game
Hockey is played in the University
of Michigan, Miss Burr pointed out,
and all women who are interested are
urged to turn out for the open hockey
season which is now going on. Prac-
tice is held and games are played at
4:15 p.m. every Tuesday and Thurs-
day at the Women's Athletic Build-
ing. A match game will be played
at the close of this season.
At the end of rushing, clubs will be
organized to take part in a field
hockey sports day which is being
planned, said Miss Burr. Outside
games will be played with such groups
as the Ann Arbor Club and the
University High School.
Miss Burr reminded women stu-
dents that through the hockey games
they may not only play and enjoy
the sport, but also become a part of
the great international network of
hockey clubs and organizations.
