Michigan's own "Sonja Henie", Nancy Upson, will head the newest
WAA organization, the Figure Skating Club, which will meet for the first
time at 4 p.m. today in the fencing room of Barbour gym. There will be no
ice-cutting at this time, but instead genieral plans will be formulated.
Only prerequisite required to join the club is ownership or "borrowship"
of a pair of figure skates. In'fact, you don't even have to be able to stand
on them, according to Nan, because the facts of figure eights will be learned
from the primary stages.
Excuse the boasting, but 'we are proud to say that the Figure Skating
Club will belong to the National Amteut Fg'ure Skating Association-
sounds good, doesn't it? The club will function, also, as a branch of the,
Ann Arbor figure skating group, and' plans have been made for an ice
carnival this spring at the Coliseum.
Here are the lucky winners of that free play at University Golf Course
this spring! These girls make up a temporary University women's golf team
and will have to compete with new contestants for the final permanent
team, which is chosen the latter pait of spting.
The fortunate coeds are .as follows: Barbara Bathke. Adele Nieman,
Eleanor Chapman, Shirley Marcellus, Barbara Wallace. Jane Richardson,
Shirley Saunders and Elizabeth Newell. Orchids to them! The rest of you,
golfers need not be discouraged. hOwever, because you too have the oppor-
tunity to make the headlines. Get out early in spring, play 18 holes at the
University course, and hand in your scores to Barb Bathke, or Mrs. Violet
When the WAA Board formulated their nians for the Voluntary Physi-
cal Fitness program they emphasized the needs for a general leadership pro-
gram, and that idea has not been forgotten. Shelby Dietrich, general
chairman of the program, has made definite plans for such training at
the meeting of leaders at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Barbour Gym. The princi-
ples and applications of leadership will be discussed and individual problems
On the books for the meeting will be the presentation of a new set of
exercises. Exact details of participation in the houses will be explained too.
Don't forget to wear shorts or slacks ahd bring along your tennis shoes.

"In this blood donors' recheck bus-
iness the only real obstruction now to
passing the test is poor health hab-
its," Dr. Margaret Bell said yesterday
in answer to questions about the
ability of University coeds to give
their blood for battle emergencies.
"I know we have quite a number of
girls okayed," she' continued. "Out
of 60 or 70 who have come so far this,
5 week to make sure they are qualified
to give away a pint of blood on Dec.
9 or 19, only a handful have been re-
jected, and it is usually poor health
habits which knock these down.
There are no substitutes for adequate
sleep, a balanced diet or effective ex-
" Want Periodic Donations
b Dr. Bell especially stressed good
health because "what we're looking
;forward to is girls who can give blood
periodically. We don't want 'one-shot
donors,'" she, said emphatically.
However, she added that if a pros-
pective donor's tests showed blood to
be a little below normal, a further
examination to rule out any possi-
bilities of excessive bleeding and to
clean up foci of infections such as
teeth or throat would be given. Ad-
justment of habits to the individual
and supplementary medication would
also be added to bring the individual
up to par.
Gratifying results have come from
such efforts in last year's campaign,
according to Dr. Bell, many of the
girls having returned this year in
"fine shape" to donate blood. '
Dr. Bell asked that, "If you ar e go-
ing to be a donor, you'd better get
over to the Health Service early. We
can't do any last minute work since
the Seryice is already busy with too
In order to give blood it is neces-
sary to get parental permission as
well as a physical recheck at the
Health Service. Though the schedule
has been carried on all week, women
may still come between 10 a.m. and
noon today for the recheck, and Dr.
Bell urges those who cannot come at
this time to arrange_ with *a Health
Service physician for one at another
hour or date.
