Opportunities for Many Sports
Activities Are Open to Students.


Sponsors Sports Clubs

Summer term is the term for fun
. . and fewer hours and more recre-
aticn will generally characterize the
campus in the summer of 1944.
The town's sports facilities are
often camouflaged, but students who
have done a bit of exploring have
found opportunities for swimming,
sailing, canoeing, bicycling, fishing,
picnicking, and numerous games.
One of the least-known but most
enjoyalale University institutions is
the Michigan sailing club. The or-
ganization owns six sailing dinghies
decked on the west side of Whitmore
Lake, which can be reached by bus,
bicycle; automobile, and a certain
method involving use of the thumb.
The group claims a certain degree
of exclusiveness, in that memLbership
is by invitation and open only at the
beginning of the semester, when a
meeting open to the public will be
announced. Ted Greer, USNR, who
heads the club, says that enthusiasm
and interest rank above sailing skill
in the choosing of new members.
Sail Every Saturday
The, club, which belongs to the
Inter-Collegiate Yacht Racing or-
ganization, meets at 1 p. m. every
Saturday and, after a short meet-
ing, goes to the lake. Before the
membership became principally Navy
personnel the club participated in
inter-collegiate racing events, and
has in the past collected several tro-
phies. However, according to Greer,
an increasing civilian group within
the club may give promise of entry
in some summer racing events.
Washtenaw County offers ade-
quate opportunity for another water
sport, fishing. The season for lake
fishing opens June 25, and the 35
lakes in the county hold bass, perch,
blue-gill, pike, and a few trout, ac-
cording to Mr. Donal Haines, a mem-
ber of the University faculty and
well-known as a fishing enthusiast
and authority.
Fishing equipment is, Mr. Haines
says, difficult to obtain now: reels
and steel rods are off the market,
bamboo rods are hard to find, and
artificial bait, lines, and other minor
equipment is obtainable but of in-
ferior quality.
Swimming faciim es are a sore
point with University coeds, for,

while men may enjoy two sizeable
pools in the Union and Intra-Mural
Building, local vomen are seriously
hampered in the way of year-around
aquatic sports.
However, with the advent of warm
weather, swimmers may take to the
Huron River and, if they happen to
dislike muck and slime, to the coun-
ty lakes, nearest of which are Bar-
ton Pond and Whitmore Lake. The
former can be reached by bicycle, by
a lengthy hike. or a canoe.
There is always, obviously, the
Barbour "bathtub," where women
may swim at any time that there'
are two or more persons in the pool.
Although two crawl strokes will take
you across the pool, which is some-
times referred to as a slightly large
crack in the cement, it is an ideal
spot for the beginner and non-swim-
mer. Suits may be rented at the
gymnasium, and towels are provided.
Canceing Facilities
Concluding the town's water sport
facilities is a canoe dock, at which
canoes, of the relatively non-tippable
variety, may be rented at any rea-t
sonable hour. While the lazier pad-
dler may spend several hours on thet
river, those who are more ambitious
may portage over the dam to Barton
Ann Arbor has the usual golf andr
riding facilities: municipal golf links
and horse stables. The stables are
open from 8 a. m. to S p. m. daily,

Driving Rules
To Extend
Into Summer
Several rules governing the opera-
tion of motor vehicles by students of
the University of Michigan have been
lifted and extended for the Summer
Term and Summer Session.
Students in the Summer Term and
Summer Session who, during the
preceding academic year were not
enrolled as students here or else-
where, but were engaged in profes-
sional pursuits, as for examples,
teachers, lawyers, physicians, den-
tists and nurses, will be granted the
unrestricted use of their cars.
Two other classifications of sum-
mer students will not be required to
observe the Automobile Regulation:
those who have registered as part-
time students and have paid a re-
duced fee, and those who are twenty-
six years of age or over.
In order to secure exemption priv-
ileges, the first group need only pro-
vide the information requested on
the section of the registration card
devoted to the use of automobiles,
namely their occupation during the
previous school year and the make,
type and license number of the car
to be driven.
Regular students who are twenty-
six or over or who take part-time

Summer school students who want
to earn some extra spending money
and add to their list of war activi-
ties will have an opportunity to
work at the University Laundry this
The laundry will be open from 7:00
a .m, to 5:30 p. m. six days a week
and students are welcome to come
at any time. The work is not hard,
students - are asked only to handle
clean linens at all times.
The minimum amount of work
per week has been set at six hours,
This need not be completed all in
one day but may be spread over the
entire week. It is preferred that

two concrete courts, the courts have
clay floors, and only tennis shoes
may be worn. Roller skates for rent
is another feature of the W.A.B.
Equipment to Rent
W.A.B. equipment offers innum-
erable opportunities for picnic par-
ties, including equipment and games.
In addition to grills, coffee pots,
toasting forks, hampers, and the like,
the prospective picknicker may se-
cure for a small fee a baseball and
bat, darts, horseshoes, croquet equip-
ment, soccer balls, and other types
of games

an hour and are paid on a bi-weekly

student aid in the Fall of 1943 due
to the acute labor shortage, and
since that time many students have
turned out to help.
