New Prograr
The University Womens Riding
Club will meet at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday
in front of Barbour Gym, according
to Kit Hammond, '44, club president,
as the club -begins its new program.
Attendance at this meeting is com-
pulsory for all members, Miss Ham-
mond added, saying that in the fu-
ture Health Service or nurses' ex-
cuses only would excuse members
from riding weekly.
This measure has been undertaken
in order to assure the Golfside Sta-
bles of a specific number of riders
weekly, and as a result 20 horses are
reserved for club members. Non-
attendance means a loss of business
for the stables when demands for
horses come from other sources.
Dona Guimaraes, '46, was elected
secretary-treasurer of the group at
the last meeting.
