Women Plan
Dr Bell To Outline Program
Which Will Answer Demandt
For Athletic Opportunities[
Recreationally or athletically-r
minded upperclassmen, whetherr
transfer or regular students, are in-
vited to attend 'a "Sports-Get-to-s
gether" which will be held at 3:30
p.m. Friday in the main lounge oft
the Women's Athletic Building, r
Planned to meet the demand byt
upperclassmen who have fulfilled
their physical education requirementst
for graduation but who are still in-v
ter ted in athletics for recration, thet
mass meeting, sponsored by the phys-t
ical education department in coop-
eration with the Women's Athletic
Association, is the first of its kind,
Dr. Margaret Bell, head of the de-
partment, said.T
To Sign Up For Sports t
The meeting will start as a social
affair, and then Dr. Bell 1ill outliner
the program. Different activities top
be offered will be presented and wo-
men may sign up for various classes
at tables which will be placed around
the room. Instructors of the classes1
as well as WAA sport managers will
be at these tables and those attending
the meeting will thereby have the3
opportunity to get acquainted with
their teachers and helpers.- i
The idea of the program is to have
intensive instruction one day a week
under the department of physical ed-
ucation,and then toncarry the recrea-
tional activities over to WA leaders
and clubs for the rest of the week.
Classes Are Named
If the weather s good, instruction
in the various sports will start im-
mediately after the meeting, and will
be continued oh Friday next week,
and throughout the outdoor and in-
door seasons.
Classes to be offered and instruc-
tors are: Beginning golf by Miss
Marie Hartwig; intermediate golf by
Mrs. Stuart Hanley; archery by Miss
° Dorothy Beise; beginning swimming
by Miss Ruth Bloomer; beginning
'tennis by Miss Jessie Thomas; iter-
mediate tennis by Miss Betty King;
and riding by Mrs. E. J. Gardner.
Riding and tennis will be held at
3 p.m. on Fridays, while the lest of
the activities will be held at 4 p.m.
so that a student may participate in
more than one sport.
Archers To Convene
For Tea Thursday
A meeting and tea sponsored by
the Archery Club will be held at
4:15 p.m. Thursday in the small
lounge of the Women's Athletic
Building, Eleanor Gray, '43, who is in
charge of the club, announced.
Plans will be made for an all-cam-
pus tournament and for a picnic,
both to be held in the near future.
Tentative plans for shooting the tour-
naient Thursday, Oct. 23, will
also be discussed. Everyone inter-
ested is invited to attend.
New Toques Create
The 'Femme Fatale'
Here's a good word for your hat
vocabulary-the "toque" will be the
thing to transform you into a "fem-
me fatale" this season. The actual
hat part of it is tiny enough, but
there are yards of fabric attached to
it which you may wind about your
tresses and shoulders in any slinky
way you please. Silk jersey's the best
bet because it hangs so well.
For you with the shiny pompadour

there's a big beret to perch on the
back of your head. It is tightly edged
with a grosgrain band and has a
-perky bow to go right behind the
pompadour. Also for you with this
hair-style is a Robinhood number
with a big feather stuck in the back.
Tryouts To Continue
Tryouts for parts in the Theatre
Arts presentation of "Rip Van
Winkle," to open Oct. 31 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre will
continue today from 3 p.m. to 6
p.m. in the League. Mary Ellen
Wheeler, '41, director of the pro-
ductions, urges all interested eli-
gible women to attend this last
day of tryouts.

Women Riders i
Take To Saddle'
For 18th Year
University horsewomen will go back
to the bridle paths this fall as the'
Crop and Saddle club enters its 18th1
year as the training ground and rec-I
reational outlet for those who reallyI
ride their hobby.
On the club program for the year
are rides through forest and open
country during good weather, and in-
door rides throughout the winter
months when time will be given to
training in, the fundamentals and
technique of good horsemanship and
to study of the care of horses. Spring

the University Horse Show in which'
they will present a mounted drill.
Other classes in the show- will in-
clude open competition among Uni-
versity students, a high school class
and jumping classes. Trophies and
ribbons will be awarded for the top
three winners in each class.
At present between 25 and 30 wo-
men are members of the Club whose
president, Mary Hayden, '42, also an-
nounces between ten and 15 vacan-
cies to be filled by tryouts Wednes-I
day, Oct. 15. Those who tryout will
be judged on walk, trot, and canter
technique. Although neophytes need
not be experts, the club only wants
girls who are sincerely interested in
the sport and who seem to have an
aptitude for it. "Fine horsemanship
can only be acquired through prac-
tice and experience, however, and that
is what we try to accomplish while
members of Crop and Saddle," Miss
Hayden said.
The club rides at 5 p.m. every Wed-
nesday and has supper and a short
meeting following. Officers of the
Crop and Saddle club are president,

Petites Pommes de Terre
This, ladies and gentlemen-if we may flatter ourself and make th

We wanted to -give you one last glimpse of the mad, breathtaking s(
