Women To Attend Three-Day'Rec-Rally'
For Drill By Dr. Bell In Posture Exercises

With a one, two, stretch, three,
four, relax, the WAA three day "Rec-I
Rally" will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tues-
day in Barbour Gymnasium. A stiff
45, minute workout on the "Michi-
gan Daily Dozen" exercises will be
followed by a Posture Contest and
Posture Clinic, Gertrude Andresen,
'42, chairman of the affair, an-
"Good old fashion drill style will be
the method employed in loosening up
the muscles and learning the 12 daily
exercises prescribed for the Michigan
coed," said Dr. Margaret Bell, who
will lead the group. At least five girls
from every residence house on cam-
pus will be present to take part. The
purpose of the "Rec-Rally" is to make
campus women aware of the fact that
physical fitness and recreation are
important to them if they wish to
be of any assistance to the govern-
ment in winning this war. They must
be in good physical condition when
called upon to do their part.
Exercise For Endurance
Dr. Bell said that it is reported
from the Great Lakes Naval Training
Station that men were easily and
quickly taught the necessary tech-
niques in a period of one month. How-
ever, when they actually got out on
the boats, they just didn't have the
physical endurance to "take it."
Thus the period was first extended
to two months, then finally three
months, not to further technical
training, but to get the men in good
physical condition. Dr. Bell said
"You can't wish endurance on your-
self with a snap of the fingers, but
you must be persistent in continually
keeping your condition up to par."
Sports are fine ways of keeping
up to par, but when one is living a
busy life sometimes too little timej
is spent this way. That's where ex-

ercise plays its part. Exercises can
be done in a limited amount of time,
and when once begun can easily be-
come part of the daily routine. Wo-
men often are anxious to do a cer-
tain exercise, but simply don't know
any, or at least the right one for the
prescribed purpose.
Instructions for the "Michigan
Daily Dozen" exercises have been
carefully and clearly prepared, and
will be given to all those who attend
the drill session Tuesday night. It
is expected tihat representatives from
the houses will take them home to
other women living in their houses.
The purpose of eaci exercise (that'
is, what each one will do for the fig-
ure and body conditioning) is labeled

Wednesday evening's activities will

be spent in a co-recreational pro-
