If the army is looking for real ability to bring up the average in con-a
pany target practices, they will soon be turning to the coeds of the countryE
for draft material. Every week women from nine of the country's leading3
universities take part in a telegraphic riflery meet, each school sending thev
results of its shooting to every other school in the match. Wheaton College,
University of Illinois, University of Alabama, University of Nebraska, Uni-
versity of Kent, Gettysburg College, Pennsylvania College for Women, andI
Ohio State University represent the different parts of the United Statest
which are competing with the sharpshooters of this University.
And when we say sharpshooters we mean it, for the home team really
ran off with the honors this week when they won 496 out of a possible 500s
points. Cheryl Davidson and Melvina Eberle shared top place' with 100t
points each, while Florence Light and Dorothy Grindotti tied for a close;
seco'nd place with 99 points each. Emmeline Wallace kept up the high
standards of the team with a score of 98.
This shooting is the best that has been done by women in the University
this year, and beats scores of all but two of the schools competing in the
weekly meets. With only one more match to be played, members of the Rifle
Club are out to do their best work of the year, for it won't be long before the
best members of the team will be honored with special certificates.
And riflery wasn't the only sport that saw some accurate shooting this
week. Arlene Ross and herteam from Club Basketball confidently chal-
lenged the faculty of the Women's Department of Physical Education to a
game after having won every match they played this year. The faculty got'
their heads together and decided that a practice session would do no harm
when they were up against the student champions, but came the day sched-
uled for the match and the practice was yet to be. To climax the story, the'
faculty, with a team that had never played together before, decisively de-
feated the Ross champs with a score of 22-13!
Two .new members on the winning team proved to be valuable additions:
Miss Ruth Johnson made all but four of the points and Miss Jesselene
Thomas used her height to her team's advantage when she played as center
guard. The faculty team has since been challenged by other ambitious mem-
bers of Club Basketball, but as has been a tradition for several years, they
refuse to play more than one game each season.
With spring officially ushered in last Saturday in the midst of cold
blasts of March winds, the Pitch and Putt Club has scheduled their last
indoor meeting for 4:30 p.m. today in the Women's Athletic Building. With
hopes ford permanent warm weather definitely on its way, members expect
to practice outside and to play the golf courses as soon as they open.
Under the new leadership of Dorothy Lundstrom the Outing Club is
beginning the season with zealous plans for the future. Saturday morning
at 8 a.m. the group will greet the rising sun and will bicycle 22 miles to
Pinckney to start work on a new Youth Hostel. Working in an old barn
they will clean the building, build bunks, make tables, construct an outdoor
fireplace, and in general prepare the place for the hostelers who will occupy
it in the near future.
As definite proof that golf, tennis and softball will soon hold the spot-
light, the new sport managers for the spring season are getting plans to-
gether to be presented to all house managers, at a meeting next Tuesday,
Materials with entry blanks for the tournaments will be sent to the mana-
gers before the meeting is held.
The second round of the ping-pong tournaments, as posted in Barbour
Gymnasium, should be played off by Saturday, March 28. ,

To be sure you've heard about USO
(United Service Organizations) clubs
and units, in fact you've probably
even contributed to them, but have
you ever stopped to consider just
what these organizations have really
In the nine months since the
American people were first asked to
cooperate in this nationwide project
of establishing USO service centers,
over 500 USO clubs and units, lo-
cated in 257 cities and towns, in 43
state have been organized. An addi-
tional 16 clubs have been formed out-
side the continental United States.
Service centers include 247 clubs
and 163 smaller units which have
been opened in rented quarters. In
addition, 160 clubs have been founded
in buildings erected by the govern-
ment and turned over to the USO and
57 more are to be opened within the
next two months. Already the month-
ly attendance f-igures have exceeded
USO clubs, although primarily re-
stricted to men in uniform, at the re-
quest of the federal government, have

workers. The clubs have recently es-
tablished 48 information booths and%
lounges at railroad and bus stations
for the convenience of troops-in-
transit. Almost 200 USO citizens'
councils are now functioning
throughout the nation.
Reading and writing rooms-thor-
oughly equipped, games, music, show-
ers, refreshment bars and lounges are
only a part of the facilities offered
by the USO clubs. Auditoriums for-
dancing, stage performances and,
other activities have been construc-
ted for the men in uniform. Here
also the military forces are enter-

shows such as "The Falcons Present"
produced by the 39th Infantry at'
Fort Bragg are also presented on
USO stages.
USO clubs and units held "open
house" recently which was intended
to acquaint the public with the fa-
cilities and activities offered the men
in service. At that time ten new
specially designed recreational build-
ings were dedicated. High military
officials participated in radio broad-°
casts which were conducted both lo.h
