Eligible Women Paged
As Dates for ISA Ball
The ISA is still searching for
eligible coeds to attend the coming
International Ball as dates of
those foreign students who have
little opportunity to meet the
fairer sex on this campus.
In order to relive this undesir-
able.situation the ISA has estab-
lished an aid to foreign students
for this event-a date bureau.
Any coed interested in taking
advantage of this opportunity of
attending ISA's biggest event of
the year with a charming escort
may apply now, says Norbert Pod-
gorski, chairman of the dance.
The bureau operates at the In-
ternational Center. Mrs. Meade
is in charge and the phone num-
ber is University extension 358.

"She must have been born with
a racquet in her hand!"
This was a familiar comment
among the opponents of Shyama
Deodhar a few weeks ago when
the badminton tournament was in
full swing.
ACCORDING to the coeds who
batted the birdie with Miss Deod-
har, winner of the tournament,
she plays a swift game which com-
pletely baffles those on the other
side of the net.
Capturing sport honors is
nothing new for Miss Deodhar
who has been collecting cups
and; medals for years. In addi-
tion to winning the all-campus
badminton title, she has been
the Badminton Club champion
for two years.
Among her long list of earned
titles is the all-campus women's
table tennis championship which
she has held for two years. Miss
Deodhar also reached the finals
in the International Center's open
ping pong tournament;
BEFORE coming to America,
Miss Deodhar won numerous con-
tests in India, including the Uni-
versity of Bombay inter-collegiate
badminton, tennis and ping pong
She has been swinging rac-
quets since she was 10 years old,
having been brought up in a
very sports-minded family. Her

three sisters and brother all
hold badminton, tennis and ping
pong titles in India.
Teacher for the talented family
is their father who is a famous
veteran of India's cricket team.
* * *
MISS DEODHAR believes that
there is a much keener interest in
women's sports in India than ex-
ists in this country. "I was very
disappointed to find such a lack of
enthusiasm here," she commented.
"There should be more encourage-
ment for American women to enter
into sport activities, with awards
and honors offered as incentives."
Inter-collegiate and varsity
tournaments are held every year
in India with medals and cups
given to both men and women
in all sports.
Miss Deodhar feels that there
should be more competition offered
in this country which would in-
clude women.
* * *
HAVING won the Barbour Schol-
arship for Oriental Women, Miss
Deodhar came to the University in
1948 after six years at the Univer-
sity of Bombay.
She is now studying education
and working on her PhD.
Miss Deodhar's activities are not
only narrowed to sports as she en-
joys writing, especially poetry.
* * *
SHE HAS HAD much of her
work published in the Marathi

Indian Sports Enthusiast Is Birdie Champ;
Awarded Table Tennis Title On Campus

language which is one of the 13
major languages in India and is
currently contributing to a . well-
known magazine.
She finds the students on
campus "very friendly" and en-
joys the dormitory life at Stock-
Unlike most of the students she
does not mind the small meat ra-
tions in dormitory meals as she is
a vegetarian.
"I miss the spicy food which we
have in India," Miss Deodhar said.
