is a course offered in canoeing which

Probably one of the most attrac-

popularity among both men and wo-

In class instruction is given in the

There are, of course, two paddlers-

strokes. to aid steering or turning.
The j-stroke, which is most com-
monly used, is a steering stroke for
the stern.
- Canoe safety is also an essential
part - of the class , program. Among
important items considered are hand-
ling o-f;canoes, and their proper care,
getting canoes: in and out of the
water, which Miss Westcott, who is
the instructor for the course, claims
is one of the major ways by which
canoes are:"ruined. Proper selection of
paddles and equiphient for safety are
also taught.
Later on in the season, when the
river water gets warm enough, vari-
ous canoe stunts will be practised.
Bobbing is one of the favorite feats.
The canoe is left empty, with the
exception of the person who stands
up .on the stern deck, who jumps up,
and, down. The object is to stay in
the canoe. Borrowed from the
"knights of old" is "jousting" in
which each person stands up in his
canoe while someone else paddles,
each has a long pole with padded
end and attempts to knock the other
person down in the other canoe. Tip-
ping and getting in and out of a canoe
are also included.

Province Inspector Visits
Alpha Xi Delta Chapter
Alpha Xi Delta will have as a
national visitor the sorority's Sec-
ond Vice President, Mrs. Olive Wag-
ner from April 26 to 29. The Michi-
gan chapter will give a tea in her
honor Friday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

No woman now an undergraduate
in the University can remember the
pre-League-Building days. No one
can recall the time when women's
multifarious activities were carried on
in corners of Barbour Gym, the days
when Dean Lloyd went home with
a nightly headache during JGP prac-.
tice period after listening to the con-
stant thump of choruses rehearsing
over her head all day.
This year marks the tenth anni-
versary of the League. To those of
us who are now in school the thought
of that anniversary brings no sense
of the reality of achievement, but to
three-Jean Holland-Dorothy Ship-
man and Betty Slee-the recent con-
vention of Women Students' delegates
held at the University of Kansas
brought home a very real apprecia-
tion of the League.
The convention 'brought together
representatives of widely varied
schools. The Big Ten sent dele-
gates, as did several Californian
universities, Cornell and Pennsyl-
vania State College. There were
small schools and large represented,
co-educational and women's, nor-
thern and southern.
The surprising fact was that among
that group the delegates from Michi-
gan were regarded as experts on
women's governing bodies. Almost
none of the universities represented
had a building corresponding to our
League, most of them were attempt-
ing to devise a merit system similar
to ours and were anxious to find oat
all they could about ours.
In view of this fact Michigan
seems justified in regarding herself
as a leader in women's governing or-
ganizations. This supremacy is due
to the foresight and initiative of the
women who preceed us by several
years, and not less so to the women
of the University's administration
who helped make the League possible.
