Dr. Bell Says Participation In Sports
Is Needed To Relieve Nervous Strain

"One of the ,most important ob-
jectives of physical education is the
relaxation which comes with grati-
fying partkcipation in sports," said
Dr. Mar:arct :Bell, head of the Physi-
cal Education Department for Wo-
men, in In interview concerning sum-
mer school classes in that department.
' The classes and activities devised
for the summer session, 1941, include
the presentation of fundamental
skills, scoring, rules, and etiquette
in the following sports: swimming,
both beginning and intermediate;
archery, golf, riding, tennis, tap danc-
ing, badminton, modern dance, and
,body conditioning.
Sports Aid Health
As Dr. Bell remarked, "One of the
greatest handicaps to health today
is the nervous strain developed with
continuous pressure, and one of the
ways to combat this strain is through
regular participation in sports - not
week -end sports but regular, longer
periods of light activity.", To this end
the physical education department
for the summer session will offer
recreational opportunities in swim-
ming, tournaments' in tennis, golf,
archerya ndbadminton, as well as
The regular classes.
Three different groups of courses
will be given. The first of these is
a six week course starting June 30
in modern dance and swimming. The
second is the first in a series of two
four week courses, one starting June
30, and the other July 14. This two
four-week course system was devised
to meet the need of those who have
difficulty in scheduling their classes
at the beginning of the session and
those who have program loads at the
To Train Teachers

uate women in the field of physical
education will be available to meet
their special needs in. any area of the
field. Certain teachers will be assigned'
to train them in skills and methods
they wish to learn.
Also, provision will be made for
supervision of groups wishing inten-.


May Clothes To V
Play clothes to fit the mood is the
_ashion sensation for this summer
and the wide variety in styles of
playsuits, slack suits and bathing
suits will provide a costume for every.
Bathing suits and play suits with
bare midriffs have been designed for,
the more daring and carefree mood
as well as overalls or pinaforeA worn
without a shirt.°

ary With Moods
Those who get tired of the man-
nish influence can wear their frills
,his summer even in play clothes.
Very feminine silk beruffled blouses
will be seen with silk and spun rayon
shorts and the ruffles on bathing
suits are ever increasing. The effect
on the bathing suits will either be a
ruffled trimming around the top or
a short ruffled skirt on a long waist-
ed fitted suit.

Special Groups
May Obtain
Auto Permits
Rules Governing Vehicles" Use
Are Less Strict During Summer
Than During Regular Session
All students, who come to the Uni-
versity during the Summer .Session
are subject to less stringent rules
regarding use of automobiles than
those in attendance during the regu-
lar session. There are several special
groups of students to whom theseJ
rules do not apply, and who may
have unlimited use of automobiles
providing they indicate this on their
Those students to whom the rules
do not apply are: those engaged in
professional pursuits (such as doctor,
lawyer, nurses); those who are 26
years of age or over; and those who
have a faculty raanking of instructor
or its equivalent.
Special Permits Granted
For students who are not in these
groups, special permits are granted,
by the Dean of Students if their cir-
cumstances necessitate such use, or if
they need a car for sporting purposes
(golf, tennis and swimming). In this
latter group, the permit is valid dur-
ing the hours of 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. each
At the time of registration' each
student will be requested to state
whether or not he will drive during
1 the Summer Session and to furnish
definite information with regard to
the make, type and license number
of the car to be used.
Applications Necessary
It is important that all students
who are not exempt under the above
rules, shopld make application for

logical Station, the Camp for For-
estry and Conservation, and the Sta-
tion for Geography are subject to

effect during the Summer Session do

rolled during regular academic year.

Cotton is king of materials for
summer because it is as fresh and
cool as it looks. Its uses know no,
limit-blouses, skirts, playsuits, day-
time dresses, formals, in fact any-
thing you can think of.
Leading the parade are the three-
piece outfits with shorts underneath.
These little time-savers are especially
popular .in stripes and splashy flow-
ers. Pique, linen, shantung, seer-
sucker and sharkskin are favorite ma-
terials because of their coolness.
Most of these playtime clothes are
easily washable, which makes them
doubly useful. The wrap-around skirt
is casual and easy to slip into.
Dignity Too Means Cotton
Clothes with a little more dignity
also use cottons first. Voile, hand-
kerchief linen, bemberg sheers have
that touch of feminity which makes
them just as suitable for streetwear
and dates as for classes. Bemberg
sheers have a special claim to popu-
larity, because they are so adaptable
-for spectator sports and dress alike.
They appear to equial advantage as
shirtwaists or dresses complete with
lace and frills.
Always popular, always smart, and
always cool is the white sharkskin
dress. It is tubable, an essential
quality for summer.
Broomstick Vs. Peasant
Skirts have but two requirements,
that they be full and colorful. Vy-
ing with the broomstick skirt for
popularity is the peasant skirt, gath-
ering on a band. Both these numbers
give the free and easy motion which
summer time activities demand. The
peasant skirt particularly is found inE
.an unlimited number of mateirals, but
for coolness and smartness, pique
cannot be outdone. For that added
note of sophistication, the striped
silk jersey skirts rate with the best.
'In partnership with skirts come
the blouses, and here you will have
full opportunity to indulge in femi-

How are you. on swimming? Well,
it doesn't matter, anyway, because
whether you glide like a Weismuller
or paddle like a turtle, its the coolness
that counts. There's a variety of
places to swim, too, even if the wo-
men haven't their pool yet. Dozens of
lakes around the city (we've been in-
fluenced a little here, perhaps, Py
the Chamber of Commerce), and the
pools at the Union and Intramural
Building invite both the champs arid
the paddlers.
Canoeing, another favorite pastime
of summer students, is a sport for
amateurs and professionals both. The
reason is mostly because the kids who
are gpod at it get a lot of pleasure
out of smoothly gliding along through
the ripples, and the ones who 'do it
badly get so much fun out of it that
they don't even notice the jerkiness
of their technique.
