Class Opens I

"Recreational Leadership will
prepare the inexperienced who
have leadership qualities and in-
crease the capacities of the ex-
perienced," stated Dr. Margaret
Bell, concerning the camp coun-
selling and recreation workshop
offered to University women this
Boasting almost one hundred
per cent placement of those de-
siring camp jobs over its twelve
year history, the recreational
leadership sessions are conducted
on a complete class organization
and participation basis, and cover
the recreational field on a variety
of topic ranging from social mix-
ers to ornithology.
The class of sixty members,
which are chosen on a basis of
personality, leadership, interest,
and experience from appliants
who have fulfilled physical edu-
cation requirements, will use the
weekly programs as a trading post
for ideas on handicraft, games,
drama and the numerous un-
classified aspects of recreation
Although a program outline is
followed, the material used in
class is compiled and presented
en.irely by members of the group.
With such a convergence of coun-
selling technique the material has
differed greatly from year to year,
keeping up with new camping
ideas from all parts of the coun-
The Recreational Leadership
group offers the twofold advan-
tage of job placement and experi-
ence. While working on the out-
side projects included in the
course, members have gained val-
uable knowledge in their desired
fields and have developed inter-
ests leading to vocational place-
ment. The Michigan Children's
Institute, the Ann Arbor Girl
Scouts and YWCA, University
Hospital have given this group
opportunities for working experi-
"If you really want to go into
recreational work seriously, "Rec"
leadership is a must," asserts
Carol Galancy, sophomore who
completed the course last year. A
summer in the Maine woods as a
counselor was the end result of
the class for another coed.
The course is open to freshmen
who have passed their individual
spoit, dance and physical require-
ments, as well as other interested
