outside Ann Arbor. Tickets for the
affair will be on sale in a limited

The all-day event is the first to

bers. Sports, food, games, songs,
and a look around the Camp are
on the agenda. The Fresh Air
Camp is supported each year by
the student body and friends for
the benefit of city boys in need of
a summer vacation. Many large
campus organizations have chosen
the Fresh Air Camp as their main
project and plans have been laid
for the winterization and expan-
sion of the Camp for the enjoy-
ment of students on winter sports
For those who are unable or do
not choose to attend the picnic
and sports day, a}/mixer will be
held Saturday afternoon in the

Freshman Required Program
There are three aspects of the
physical education department at
Michigan. The required program
for freshman women is arranged
according to their needs after
complete physical examinations
and conferences with individuals.
Physical fitness tests and correc-
tive vork is included in this pro-
The elective program is de-
signed to orient students in physi-
cal education and the outdoors; to
teach them what to do and how
to do it; and to put the time, place
and equipment at their disposal.
This program helps promote all
the formal or informal activities
in which anyone is interested.
Elective activity shades fromsthe
organized sports clubs sponsored
by the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion to self-initiated activities.
Team Sports Offered
The intramural aspect of the
department is made up of formal-
ized team activity. Sometimes
there are as many as 84 teams
participating in one tournament,
such as softball or basketball.
The University offers facilities
for nearly all outdoor sports, and
special equipment such as skis is
available if there is a demand for
it. The department hopes to be
housed in a new building south of
the Women's Athletic Building at
some future date. Hopes also in-
clude the long-dreamed-of swim-
ming pool forthe new building.
A complete staff is employed by
the physical education depart-
ment. Among the several new
members to be added this year are
Dr. Mary Lou Smelser, from Co-
lumbia University, and Miss Juana
de Laban, well-known Hungarian
dancer. In addition to supervising
the dance department, Miss Laban
will assist dramatic and musical
projects on campus.
The WAA sports clubs are man-
aged by women who have peti-
tioned for the positions. There are
eighteen groups open to all under-
graduate women.

In addition to the money earned,
the value of part-time employ-
ment in its bearing upon future
occupations is pointed out in this
pamphlet. "In other words, many
students are learning while earn-
ing, and enjoying work along the
lines of their special interests."
The number of women students
listed in the Office of the Dean of
Women as being employed in-
creased during the academic year
1947-48 to 522 as compared with
472 during the academic year
1946-47 and it is anticipated that
there will be even more during the
coming academic year because of
the high cost of living.
However, inquiries to date for
the year 1948-49 indicate that
there are more girls who will earn
their living expenses in private
homes provided enough house-
holders request their services.
Housework and child care is the
type of work for which there are
the most requests with waitress
jobs a close second.
New women students who have
to finance part of their own edu-
cation are advised to call at the
Office of the Dean of Women as
soon as they know their class
Hockey Club

The first meeting of the hockey
club will be held at 5 p.m., Sept.

"This year we are hoping to
have the women sign up for the

the first week of school," Bar-
bara McCready, chairman of the
club, said. We will then begin
practice the first day-just as a
warm-up, she explained.
Toward the middle of the sea-
son, organized teams will compete
against each other. Games will
be planned with other schools and
the club is scheduling a field day
when its members may entertain
a number of visiting teams.
Hockey Club meetings are held
twice a week, Tuesday and Thurs-

events during the year.
WAA Clubs
The WAA Clubs, which are open
to all coeds, including first semes-
ter freshman, provide an oppor-
tunity for activity in almost every
athletic field desired. In most of
the clubs beginners are welcomed
and instruction sessions are held
regularly for the amateurs.
The chance to meet the WAA
and pick the favorite sports club
will come when the WAA will hold
their annual style show and pro-
gram for the newcomers on cam-
Michigras, the biggest event of
the year for Michiganders is the
heaviest project of the association.
This giant carnival of shows,
games, fun and participation by
every organization on campus, is
sponsored biennially, to raise mon-
ey for a women's swimming pool.
In addition last year the WAA se-
lected a special "swimming pool
promotion" committee to hustle
along activity on plans and funds
for the needed women's pool. Rad-
io quizzes, skits, and novelty dis-
plays were put before the campus

until the pool project seemed
minent in the near future.
Lantern Night
Another annual event sponso
by the WAA is Lantern Night,
all campus women's sing hon
ing senior women and marking
wards for athletic participate
throughout the year. Tradition
ly Michigan women form a line
march led by the seniors in c
and gowns and followed by t
underclassman. The march p
ceeds to Hill Auditorium, wh
the sing and awards take place
The interhouse tournaments
basketball, softball and volleyb
are also under the auspices of t
WAA and under certain regul
tions league houses, dormitod'r
and sororities may enter teams
the campus-wide tournaments.
Coed Night
A new inovation last year pus
ed by the WAA was the weekly c
ed night at the Intramural Buil
ing. Weekly Friday nig
activity was scheduled with swi
periods, volleyball, basketba
square dancing and other gam
held during the winter f
sports enthusiasts of both sexes
In cooperation with oth
schools and colleges the Associa
tion began a series of play-da3
between the various sports clut
and the corresponding clubs of tl
other colleges.

This coming fall season will see
Michigan women wielding strange
new weapons in some of their
numerous athletic contests on
Palmer Field.
Lacrosse, the popular Eastern
team sport, is spreading westward
and will take a stand on campus
this year. Sponsored by the Wo-
men s Athletic Association, a new
Lacrosse Club will be organized,
under the managership of Pris-
cilla Ball. Coeds will have the
chance to take up the Lacrosse
"sticks" September 24 when the
club will hold its organizational
Fundamental Skills
Manager Ball, encourages ab-
solute beginners to help found the
cluo as the first few meetings will
be devoted to acquiring the funda-
mental skills and learning the
rules. Also all experienced play-
ers are on call as they could form
a nucleus for a "growing club,"
according to Miss Ball.
For the benefit of "western"
readers who have never encount-
ered the clashing "sticks" a little
explanation might do. Lacrosse
is played with a hard rubber ball,
between two and three inches in
diameter and long handled wood-
en "sticks" with a gutter basket
at the end. The teams of twelve
players try, as in hockey, to get
the ball over the opponents goal.
They accomplish this by carrying
the ball in their "stick" while
running and passing to the "stick"
of teammates. Opponents may in-
tercept a passed ball or knock it
from a "stick."
The game can be fun for inex-

perienced players because the only
necesary skills are throwing and
catching, which can be mastered
without much difficulty. After a
time club members may acquire
the additional skills of turning,
dodging, body checking, goal
shooting and other strategy. Un-
like men's lacrosse, the women's
game permits no body contact
(hitting players with the "stick")
so contrary to some popular opin-
ion, it is not a dangerous sport.
Also there are no field boundaries
in women's lacrosse as in the mas-
culine game.
Historical Side
On the history side, the game
started with the American Indians
but the colonists didn't see their
red brothers tossing the ball. Ra-
ther the game was introduced in
England and hence, indirectly to
America. Although Charles S.
Powell claims he founded the in-
itial Lacrosse Club in Philadelphia
some sixty years ago, its gaining
popularity is recent. New England
has the enthusiasts at present and
lacrosse is rapidly taking a lead-
ing position among the regular
sports of eastern schools and col-
leges. The United States Women's
Lacrosse Association coordinates
the national activities of the sport
and arranges tournaments among
schools and, particularly among its
22 allied members.
For more information about
this opportunity to learn a new
game, readers may consult the
"League Lowdown."
