Forestry Club To Hold Campfire Today

The sports spotlight this week shines on the Union pool, where the inter-
house swimming meet will take place at 7:15 p.m. today. Most of the entries
for the event have been turned in already, but newcomers may come out for
the meet up until the last minutes, according to Oriel Straehley, '45, chair-
man of the affair.
No contestant may be in more than three of the events, however, and
all must know which ones they are in, as their names will
not be called off at the pool. Only the name of the event
will be announced. All swimmers must be prepared to pay
ten cents for the privilege of using the pool.
( a Plans are getting better every minute for the big laugh
of the evening, that is, the relay between four League Coun-
cil and four WAA Board members. Rumor has it that Nan
11lstrup will be wearing an old-fashioned bathing suit and
will carry a Chinese umbrella on her way across the pool.
"Es" Stevens will dash across with a spoon on which she'll
balance a ping-pong ball-she hopes. The other two mem-
- bers of the goad in the race are Helen Willcox and Miss
Straehley. Giving the Board stiff competition will be "Jud-
dy", Ginny Morse, Betty Newman and Peg Brown.
The 25 league house athletic directors will meet with the
WAA Board at 5 p.m. Monday for a rough and tumble time
followed by a hot dog feast. Those attending must wear their "horriblest"
slacks and be ready for everything from a football game, weather permitting,
to a session of jacks, if Ann Arbor weather should play true to form.
Talking about the weather, and it may be dull, but it sure is the most
important thing, when it comes to playing off the tennis tournament. Need
we say more-about last week? Anyhoo, there are no excuses this week,
and the schedule is posted at the WAB. The first round
must be played by today, and the second round will start C
tomorrow and close Monday.
Here's more fun for tennis enthusiasts! Nan Hattersley,.
who's in charge of the club this year, has lots of ideas and
wants to hear yours, so come out at 4:15 p.m. today at the
WAB for a short meeting and play.
