Bon voyages . . . smooth sailings . . . and happy landings were prac-
tically all we heard early this summer . . . and now that summer is gone
it seems everyone has a European tale of adventure to tell . . . you're
almost an exception if you stayed in the States .. . almost ... There were
simply scads of students touring this summer . . . so many in fact, they
kept bumping into each other whether it were London or the Riviera ...
In one student tour we found eight Michigan-ders ... they were having
a simply wonderful time and certainly lots of excitement . . . Margaret Ham-c
ilton had quite the thrill of a lifetime when she suddenly found herselfc
dangling in mid-air in the crevice of a glacier . . . mountain climbing in
the Alps may not be so simple as it seems .. . but with the assistance of
two guides and the other girls, Margaret was rescued . . . and warilyE
made her way back to safer footing . .. Mary Johnson, Frances Sutherland,t
Betty Aigler and Mary Irwin were also in this group ... they couldn't helpt
being terribly amused at Betty Whitney in Chester, England Betty
had a bit of difficulty finding a jacket when she left the train . . . maybe -
best she give you details . . . Betty Spangler came back with loads of
English tweeds and much impressed with having seen so many buildings
'specially those studied in Fine Arts 101 last semester.
The Alpha Phis practically monopolized one trip . .. Ginny Jackson . .
Tommy Patterson . . Betty Walsh, Judy Trosper and Priscilla Abbottt
were traveling together . . . and imagine their surprise and delight..
they were on the train from Vienna to Venice with none other than,
Wally and the Duke of Windsor . . . Mary Johnson even brushed elbows
with the Duke at the Lido ... lucky Mary!
Doing The Continent.. .
Hopping from the Lido to the Alps and what did we find . . . Phil
Buchen, Pat Ratterman and Jack Stiles throwing snowballs on the 31st day
of July . . , they had purchased a second hand car in France and were
doing the continent in fine style . . . taking in the Music Festival in Salz-
burg, both the French and Italian Rivieras . .. and meeting several friends
in Munich, one spot that a tourist seldom misses ... Incidentally, a friend
of Jack Stiles . . . Graf Jean Hoyos . . . from Austria, traveled with them
all summer . . Then they met San Ladd and John Kollig in Nuremberg
and celebrated the occasion . . . Vince Butterly and Tyler Carlisle were
also gadding about through England and the continent.
The Heath girls, Barbara and Harriet, were also abroad this summer
.. . had one grand time seeing everything, they say . . . and of course Becky
Bursley, who was traveling with her family ... didn't lose a moment's time
going from one country to another . . . Willy Tomlinson and Miller Sher-
wood were touring Germany this summer . we haven't heard if they'
saw Herr Hitler or not . . . Betty Anne Beebe and Jane O'Ferrall were
much impressed with Italy and all its grandeur . . . and they met some
celebrities, too . .. a famous violinist and Beveridge Webster, pianist, who
will soon make his third concert tour in the United States . . . Bob Weeks
and"Carl Petersen were travelling together . . . here and there in Europe . .
and we found Alberta Wood visiting in England most of the summer . .
Leaving England to find what was happening to the people in the States
during the summer . . . (and there was plenty doing for those vacationers
too) . .. we saw Bruce Forbes also leaving Glasgow for home ...
Back home again . . (and it isn't so difficult to keep tab on these
jaunts) . . . we found Dottie and Betsie Baxter at the shore . . . Ocean City
.. ..for the month of July . . . having heaps o' fun and entertaining some
of their Philadelphia friends . . and then suddenly we discovered that
Elise Reeder had gone vacationing in Honolulu . . . and that somewhere
we had missed Doris Holt, Betty Sinclair, Jean Seeley and Betty Little,
who were also taking in the European sights . .

W.A.A. Sponsors
Program For I
Friendships Are Stressed
As Much As Competition;
Clubs Are Formed
A chance to be a part of an or-
ganization, to have that spirit of "be-
longing," and an opportunity to par-
ticipate in sports where friendship
and meeting people is stressed asI
much as sheer competition, is given
in the Women's Athletic Association,,
said Mary Johnson, '38, president.
Although W.A.A. was organized for
the purpose of exposing women toj
sport and getting them interested,
the social contact is also stressed. A
chance for mixed recreation is of-
fered and this isd6Kein such sports
as badminton, archery, tap and crea-
tive dancing, bowling, rifle, swimming
and hockey. In hockey the women's
team plays against a lawyer's team
and in rifle the women compete with
the R.O.T.C. squads.
Freshmen May Participate
First semester freshmen are al-
lowed to participate in sports and
this is the only outside activity in
which they are given this opportunity.
Therefore they are given a good
chance to meet other students andl
*to work into an organization, Miss
Johnson pointed out, for representa-
tives of all the organized sports, some
K of them being club presidents, are on

the clubs arrange a number of in-
vitational matches with outside
groups. While here competition is
important, social contact is also
stressed, Miss Marie Hartwig, in-
structor of physical education for
women, pointed out. Badminton, {
archery, basketball, riding, dance,
fencing, golf, rifle, swimming and
tennis clubs are active under W.A.A.
In addition to the clubs there are
the departmental activities which are
organized by the department with the
assistance of student leadership fur-
nished by W.A.A. There also are
elective activities, those not offered
in the other two groups and which
are voluntarily elected by students.

s rtMany Clubs Are Active
The term intramural is used to
cover all organized athletic activities
in which there is voluntary partici-
pation, Miss Johnson said, adding
that the aim of this program is to
offer wide opportunity for recreation
in sports. The tendency of the
t W.AA. is to promote more and more
e tournaments, Dr. Margaret Bell, di-
rector of women's physical education,
said.sHowever participation in sports
-sponsored by W,A.A~ has nothing to
do with the physidal 'education re-I
quirements. But a physical examina-
tion re-check is needed and Dr. Bell
asks all women to get this during the
