acquainted with a gun, and it seems
that that would be a good idea these.
days, come out to the meeting," Miss
Filstrup says. Freshmen may come
out for this, since eligibility is not
needed to participate in WAA activi-

The season starts Nov. 26, and after
a two week period of instruction, the
shooting will begin. The group will
be instructed by members of thef
Some sort of certificates will be
awarded this year, for thefirst time,
Miss Filstrup added. These will be
not too difficult to obtain, and there
will probably be three different
classes of certificates, Effort is em-
phasized; not skill.
At the end of the season, there
are telegraphic matches, in which the
University competes with other
schools. Every woman gets to shoot
at least one match; it is not limited
to 'a team. They shoot each week,
and holders of the ten best scores

Colds aren't conducive to athletics,
but we'll make an attempt even
thcugh our noselookstlike W. C.
Fields' and we have that general
.'wooziness" which . . . oh, no adver-
tising . . . is supposed to cure!
The "army," as the R.O.T.C. is
fondly called by the Palmer Fielders
or archers, had some practical ex-
perience, when they were forced to
dcdge the arrows of the shooting
group. So intent on their marching
formation were they, that until they
were immediately behind the targets'
and some awakened soul shouted,
"Halt there!" they failed to realize
their peril. But they scattered quite
rapidly . . . so thats our army in the

Default to the right and default
to the left have resulted in the
quarter finals of the women's
singles tennis tournament. Nancy
Emerson will meet Helen Willcox;
Eva Ftchs will play Jane Edmonds;
Connie Hammett will clash with
Nancy Hattersley; and Maureen
Patterson will meet Doris Ann Hen-
dricks. All of the seeded players
have lost out by default except Miss
Edmonds, who is carrying on val-
iantly. Next week will find the
finals being played and then .
the winnah!

Ye Pitch and Putters . . . will meet
at 4:30 p.m. today to concentrate on
approaching (wow!) technique. 'Tis
said that the natural hazards caused
quite a little difficulty on the golf
_curse this season . . . for example,
the leaves fall'ng due to frost,- etc.,
::tc., would cover the balls; conse-
'2uently hcurs would be spent in
eaiching for the balls which were all
the time under the brown and red
leaf to the left . . . And that stone
wall, what strange things it did to
the balls that "were going straight"
down the fairway!

In stocking feet the girls are
playing volleyball, for the simple
reason that regular shoes aren't al-
lowed on the gymnasium floor and
that tennis shoes are either not
available or forgotten inevitably.
Kappa Kappa Gamma were vic-
tors over Chi Omega, 40-33,rwhile
Zeta Tau Beta just barely nosed out
Stockwell II, 36-35. Alpha Gamma
Delta beat Kappa Alpha Theta, 36-
1s, Pi Beta Phi trounced Phi Sigma
Sigma, 31-19, and Helen Newberry
won by a nose (it's the sniffling in-
fluence!) over Delta Gamma ... a
little one . . . 27-26.
On the defaulting side, Alpha
Phi, Alpha Epsilon Phi and Delta
Delta Delta eliminated Stockwell I,
League I, and Theta Phi Alpha re-
spectively . . . So 'til seein' you
