WflR Petitions Due at



Today in Undergraduate Office

Club Managers
Petitions for all WAA Board po-
sitions are due at 5 p.m. today in
the League Undergraduate Office.
Of the 32 positions which are
open to petitioning, 20 are for a
sport's club managers.
EXPERIENCE or ability in the
sport is required, but rather an
understanding of the purpose of
the club, enthusiasm plus leader-
ship and organizational ability.
Beverly Hawes has headed
the Archery Club which is made
up largely of beginners. There
were 20 members this year who
shot on the WAB range and are
now taking equipment out on
Palmer Field for practice.
The club sponsors both an all
campus tournament and tele-
graphic matches with other col-
leges. They run for about eight
weeks both semesters at the end
of which time a party is given for
all members.
Nancy Somers from November un-
til January. Instruction is given
by a faculty advisor the first two
weeks of club meetings as is the
case in most other clubs. Anyone
petitioning should have some idea
of how to set up tournaments as
the club runs one for itself and
one open to the campus.
The Ballet Club is one of the
few coeducational clubs of
WAA. Inez Miller, manager,
suggests those petitioning have
knowledge of basic ballet tech-
niques and principles of move-
The club meets every Monday
night throughout the year and is
often given instruction by Dr.
by Jeri Mulson, runs from No-
vember through March at the
same time that the WAA Inter-
mural Basketball tournament is
bbing run.
A new project of the club this
year was the mock "Army-Navy"
game to encourage a larger
membership. The club has 30
members now, and wants more.
Virginia Correll is in charge of
the largest of WAA sport's club,
which is the Bowling Club. It has
10 members. The club runs the
first seven weeks of each semester
and uses the bowling allies of
WAB. They also participate in a
National Telegraphic Tournament
with other colleges.

ters to women interested in all
kinds of camping. They are active'
all year and do everything that the
club members think might help
them in camping work. The club is
headed by Carol Tuer with a
membership of about 20.
The Fencing Club, headed by
Marion Robinson, is one of the
few which is looking for an ex-
perienced manager. Fencing is
an indoor sport and consequent-
ly runs during the end of the
first semester, and the begin-
ning eight weeks of second se-
This year they are sponsoring an
t intraclub tournament. Also, they
are taking a trip to the "Salle de

GOLF CLUB is in season when-
ever the weather permits. Buffy
Barss, manager, will be running a
k campus tournament after spring
vacation. Those eight with the
lowest score will be privileged to
play on the University Golf Course.
The club is instructed by Mrs.

Hanley and consists of about 40
women. It provides an excellent
opportunity for golfers to ar-
range games among themselves.
Barbara McCready, manager of
the Field Hockey Club, says that
knowledge of good and bad hockey
players is very helpful to the man-
ager as it is one of her duties to
choose teams from club members.
These teams play against teams
from other schools, such as Yp-
silanti, Michigan State and Al-

ONLY 15 COEDS were members
of the club last fall and it is hoped
that the new manager will have
ideas to increase membership. The
season is the first 10 weeks of first
The Ice Skating Club, headed
by Ruth Ann South, will not be
open for petitioning becaue the
club chooses their own man-
Lacrosse Club, headed by Priscilla
Ball, opened for the first time last
fall, and consequently spent most
of their time learning fundamen-
tal skills. Excellent instruction is
provided by Miss Berlin who has
had a great deal of training in
this sport.

LAST SEASON there were only
13 members, but it is hoped that
participation will increase. Since
the club's organization, the men
have started a lacrosse club, and
the physical education depart-
ment will be offering classes for
instruction this spring.
Libby Rensford, manager of
Michifish (the women's swim-
ming club), sponsors the wom-
en's swimming meet in the fall
besides running her club.
A new project of the year is a
ballet which is to be given the end
of April. This will close season for
all 50. Michifishers who have been
swimming on Saturdays since Oc-
MODERN DANCE club is an-
other which calls for an experi-
enced manager. Dr. Laban also
helps with the instrutcon, but
can't be there for every meeting.
Outing Club sponsors all sorts
of indoor and outdoor activities
such as hayrides, dancing and
hiking which keeps the organi-
zation going almost all year
long. There are about 25 women
in the club which is managed
by Sue Robinson.
Zola Shipman runs that club
which teaches women to use a
rifle. Instruction is provided to
the Rifle Club by the ROTC from
November until April. About 30

There are two publicity chair-
men on the Women's Athletic As-
sociation Board; one takes care of
general publicity and the other
works with The Daily.
Cynthia Finn, as head of gen-
eral publicity, had two main jobs
on the Board this year. She took
charge of all the posters that ad-
vertised WAA activities, tourna-
ments, parties, and projects.
SHE ALSO had charge ofthe
movies that WAA is taking of their
work this year which are to be
shown at the freshman fashion
show next fall and to the new
Board this spring.
Mary Ann Harris was in
charge of putting stories in The
Daily about club organization
and projects, plus news on the
spring project, "Tennis Ball,"
Lantern Night, their calendar
sales and other things that
came up during the year.
Miss Finn centers most of WAA
publicity on the bulletin boards of
WAB, Barbour Gym and the
League. The clubs design their
own posters with her suggestions
and help, and she does the plan-
ning of posters which advertise
WAA Board activities.
In choosing Daily publicity
chairman, it will be taken into
consideration whether or not the
petitioner is a member of the Daily
Softball Club
To Meet Today
Women feeling the call of the
diamond this spring will find an
outlet for their enthusiasm in the
"king of sports" through the newly
organized women's Softball Club,
to hold its organizational meeting
at 4 p.m. today in Barbour Gym.
Membership in this club, open
to all women on campus, involves
not only the opportunity to play
base ball within the club, but also
to gain valuable experience and
pointers to use on their own house
One day a week, from Monday
through Thursday, will be spent
by members playing on teams
within the club, while plans are
being made for one or two play
days coordinated with other clubs
and schools.

On tie oud~ae
DISC JOCKEYS take the social agenda by the horns this weekend,
although some of us may find ourselves in the Acacia Doghouse,
at the Lloyd Alumni Dance, or perhaps in the Zeta Opium Den.
Acacia party-goers will make their entrance through a doghouse
front door into an oversized kennel. Furniture will be pushed back
into insignificance, and straw will take its place. Pictures of dogs
who haunted the Acacia Kennel in the past will line the walls.
A huge bull dog will grace the center of the mantlepiece. And of
course Acacia's English Bull, Mike, will be the guest of honor. Blue
jeans will be in order. And for refreshment the men are serving pastry
bones and Squirt.

TOMORROW EVENING Lloyd House will hold its third annual
alumni dance and reunion. Lloyd was the first of the men's residence
hall groups to schedule such an affair, giving past residents a chance
for reunion. Some 15 or 20 alumni will be coming in from Detroit,
Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, etc.
The dance will be informal and held in their dining room
which will take on the appearance of a night club. The men are
hoping that this type of atmosphere will be conducive to the usual
alumni chats. The Lloyd House Glee Club will entertain at inter-
mission time.
Zeta Psi's Chinese Opium Den will come close to being the real
McCoy. Burning incense will help create that heavy, languid atmo-
sphere. The walls will find themselves lined with Chinese characters.
EACH GUEST SHOULD RECEIVE a long, thin pipe and a small
pack of opium upon entering the den. Coolie hats and Chinesey
costumes will be donned for the affair. The Zeta version of saki (a
rice wine) will be served during the evening.
Dave Wise and his orchestra will play at the Phi Delt Half-
and-Half Party tomorrow evening. Everything is really going
to be half formal and half informal. The men aren't sure yet
how their women will work it but they are requested to come
dressed only in the top half of a formal gown.
The men will be attired in tuxedo trousers and regular sports
shirts. Even the surroundings will fall in line with the upstairs ball-
room a formal black and white and the basement refreshment bar
in shambles.
"I CAN'T EXACTLY EXPLAIN how we're going to carry this
off," said the Phi Kappa Sig spokesman. "Everything will be the way
that i$ shouldn't be-in a state of utter confusion, that is." As some
may have guessed the men have planed their April Fool party for
A bathtub will grab the center of attention in the middle of
the dance floor. The entire house will be filled with floating
balloons; the stairs are to be lined with mattresses. Even the
cokes will take on various gaudy hues. Sounds like fun!
Sigma Phi's second annual Frontier Party will be in full swing
from 8 p.m. to midnight tomorrow. This is a costume affair, and also
includes early frontier entertainment.
From 9 p.m. until midnight tomorrow members of Trigon will
honor new initiates at their pledge formal. A huge replica of the
pledge pin will adorn one wall. On other walls there will be posters
depicting activities of the neophytes during their pledgeship. Del
Elliott and his orchestra will do the musical honors. The dance
will be preceded by dinner at the Stage Coach Inn.
COUZENS HALL'S formal, "Spring Dream," has been planned
for tomorrow evening. The freshmen women put on this dance every
spring for the upper-classmen.

Odonto Ball
To Feature
Frank Tinker
Odonto Ball, dental students'
annual semi-formal fling, will be
held from 9 p.m. till 1 a.m. today
in the Union Ballroom.
Originally an all-campus dance,
the first Odonto Ball was held in
1935, when dental students de-
cided to sponsor a dance similar
to other professional school dances
such as Caduceus and Slide Rule
In recent years attendance has
been limited to students of the
dental and medical schools, pre-
dental students, graduates in the
dental profession and faculty
The theme of the dance will
be kept secret until today. It will
center around the idea of wishing
success to this year's seniors in
the School of Dentistry.
Intermission entertainment will
include several acts. One of these
will be a series of pantomimes by
seniors Robert Peterson, Fred Jef-
fers and Richard Reid.
Frank Tinker and his orchestra
will provide the music.
Committee members are Donald
Bergeron, chairman; Edward An-
derson, publicity and tickets; Tom
Bacon, entertainment; William
Eggleston, pictures; Samuel Ca-
pola, invitations; Earl Gaskill,
decorations; and Donald Hager-
man, refreshments.
