Golf Lessons
All Coeds May Attend Group
Meeting at 4:30 p.m. Today
All coeds will have an opportunity
to sign up for a professionally-taught
series of golf lessons when Pitch and
Putt, the WAA Golf Club, holds its
first organization meeting of the year
at 4:30 p.m. today in the Women's
Athletic Building.
The lessons, will begin Monday,
Jan. 7, and are to be taught on con-
secutive Mondays by Mrs. Stuart
Hanley, who has won the Michigan
state women's golf championship
three times, and who has also served
as a member of the United States
golf committee.
Facilities for instructing more
than 100 women have been secured
by Pitch and Putt, and all coeds
interested in learning golf are in-
-vited to attend today's meeting.
Methods of teaching will be pat-
terned after those which have been
found successful in several large
cities where professional golfers
have taught at special golf "schools."
More than 80 women have already
signed for membership in the golfing
group, a number which is in harmony
with this year's trend of large WAA
club membership. The Bowling and
Rifle Clubs, for example, have more
than 100 members each, and atleast
75 teams are participating in volley-
ball activities.
Dr. Margaret Bell, chairman of
the Department of Physical Educa-
tion for women, said recently, "Our
classes are crowded to capacity, and
we are short of staff members and
facilities for teaching. There is a
heavier demand for instruction,
and all available time and space
during the day is being used at
present. Therefore, we are institut-

week-end entertainment.

that all of the women who wish
instruction will have an opportun-

rious sports.
"Barbour Gym was built in 1896 for
the use of the 200 women then on
campus. At present, with only the
added facilities of the Women's Ath-!
letic Building, we have 1300 in our
required classes, and at least 800
women a week participating in intra-
mural activities," Dr. Bell continued.
Dr. Bell also said that Pitch and
Putt, in cooperation with several of
the other clubs, hopes to plan a
"sports day" with other nearby col-
leges. The last sports day was held in
1939, when teams from the University
of Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio
State competed in golf, riding, and
fencing. Open . competition golf

1943 Makes Fashion History

IT HAS BEEN SAID that women's
fashions are supposed to reflect the
history of our times better than any
of our texts. If that's so, then future
researchers looking in the year, 1945,
will tear their hair in bewilderment!
The year that ushered in the atom-
ic bomb years before it was due, was
also the year which brought back the
bustles. The year of the greatest mili-
tary contest in history produced a
new wave of femininity. Even babush-
kas were made glamorous by sewed-on
sequins, and formals reappeared in
their full filmy off-the-shoulder glory.
In 1945 waistlines were squeezed in;
square shoulders were rounded, hair

was piled high, and the hour glass
figure came into its own again!
WITH the trend toward the femi-
nine, we admittedly did copy a
few styles from our men in the serv-
ice. We stole the battle jacket from
Eisenhower, the pea jacket from the
Navy, the belted gabardine raincoat
from the Army. From the Canadians
we took the tightly belted coat with
the full skirt and big, hippy pockets.
In spite of the shortages of stock-
ings, shoes, and underclothing, the
American woman of 1945 was quite
fortunate. She walked into 1946 bet-
ter dressed than many of her sisters
all over the world, which is indeed
something to be thankful for.
