Physical Education Posts Filled
Two new instructors, Fritzie Gareis
and Corinne Crogen, have recently
been added to the Physical Education
Miss Gareis, prior to her appoint-
ment to the staff of instructors, was
a lieutenant in the SPARS. She is a
graduate of Sargent College of Phys-.
ical Education, and has done work
in the Y.W.C.A. in Detrqit for two
years, teaching various sports such
as swimming, tennis, badminton, and
volleyball. During her 32 months as
a SPAR, Miss Gareis also did some
physical education instruction at
Palm Beach and Manhattan Beach
where she assisted in the Navy ath-
In addition to this, Miss Gareis
was a recreation officer in Washing-
ton, D. C. where her duties included
the planning of recreational activi-
ties for women. Here at Michigan,
she teaches archery, square dancing,
badminton, and swimming, her, fa-
vorite sport. Miss Gareis commented,
"I've always liked Michigan. The
faculty and students are wonderful;
however, I m still getting adjusted to
civilian life-but so far it's great."
Miss Crogen is from Wisconsin,
and received h 4r undergraduate
training at LaCrosse State Teachers
College, did graduate work at the
Uriversities of Indiana and Minne-
sota, and took her degree at Welles-
ley. Before her position at Michigan,
Miss Crogen taught at Eastern Illi-
nois State Teachers College. Her'
classes here include swimming, life
saving, and body mechanics, and she
is also interested in individual sports
such as tennis, golf, or archery.
Miss Crogen's greatest interests lie
in the field of research. Her proce-
dure is first to determine how well co-
ordinated students are through a ser-
ies of physical fitness tests, and then
to help those coeds who are weak in
certain fields or lack endurance by
conditioning programs. She is also
working on a project of discovering
tests which are more easily adminis-
tered, yet give more -atisfactory re-
Miss Crogen .has developed an en-
tirely new game called "pandle ball"
which is similar to handball except
that paddles are fitted to the hand,
and a sponge ball is used. She has
worked out the rules, and has tried it
out successfully on groups.
Pandle ball has already been pub-
lished in the "Journal of Health and
Physical Education," and she hopes
it can be introduced to the public as
soon as priorities will allow the man-
ufacture of the equipment needed.

THERE IS A GENERAL misapprehension running loose around The Daily
(you have to keep an awfully strict eye on these general misapprehen-
sions) that the members of the Women's Staff are a bunch of featherbrains
sadly out of touch with the harsh realities of life. This is palpably untrue.
Why, Women's Staff knows things about the WAA clubs which would make
the upright, clean-living, eager young idealists who compose Editorial Staff
blanch and feel faint.
WE TOO SIT UP NIGHTS worrying, to an impressed audience, about
racial intolerance. We too can talk about Plato's Republic loudly and
long enough to make people think we've read it. We too have a deep scorn

sometimes descend to combing our

body is hopelessly deluded, friyolous,
and indifferent to the Things That

their apathy on important subjects
WOMEN'S STAFF is not just the
mob of people Edit staff has to
fight its way through to get to the
coke machine; far from it. We are
keenly aware of the need for global
thinking, international cooperation
and more interest in campus elec-
tions, and if our shoes didn't hurt so
much we would probably get close to
the living breathing heart of America
by walking picket lines.
AS THINKING MEMBERS of this

would like some attention from Edit

us have been on The Daily three years
without a kind word from our co-
workers, and our feelings are hurt.
