University Officials Proclaim
Disapproval of Coed Football
Clarifying Statements Given to Students;
Prohibitive Ban Not Considered Effective

In a statment sent to all wo-
men's residences this week, Uni-
versity officials expressed their
disapproval of women's participa-
tion in football.
The women physicians of
Health Service, the Office of the
Dean of Women and the Women's
Physical Education Department
jointly issued the statement in or-
der to clarify their view of foot-
ball as a sport for coeds.
* * *
"ALTHOUGH WE cannot con-
done it," said Dr. Margaret Bell of
Health Service and the Women's
Physical Education Department,
"we do not consider a prohibitive
ban an effective or sensible solu-
tion to the problem."
"We have decided instead,"
she continued, "to present our
reasons for disapproval to the
students and allow them to
make the decision for them-
In the article sent to women's
residences, the medical staff ex-
plained that women are not con-
stitutionally adapted to the game.

THE LACK of heavy muscles,
the small waists and frequently
long span between the rib cage
and hip bones leaves the abdomen
with spleen, liver and kidneys op-
en to serious damage.
Tackling and even body block-
ing or shoulder blocking may
result in abdominal injuries and
broken bones.
The article further states that
"women notoriously have had no
vigorous conditioning." Without
any concentrated period 'of train-
ing most coeds participate very ir-
regularly and strenuously in foot-
ball, wearing no special protective
Since the games are not part of
the PhysicalEducation curricu-
lum, participants do not receive
preliminary medical reviews, the
physicians announced.
Dr. Bell stated that Health Ser-
vice has already treated a num-
ber of women for serious football
injuries including fractured arms
and legs.

Public Speech
By Glittermore
A change in location of Mr.
Whitimore Glittermore's speech
from the Diagonal to the steps of
the School of Business Adminis-
tration was announced last night

Glittermore, executive director
of Glittering Gold Mining Enter-
prise and University alumnus, was
reported outraged on discovering
he was to s eak in so plebian an
atmosphere as the Diagonal, and
asked his public relations man last
night to change the location to
one with more modern surround-
"The business administration
school fits Mr. Glittermore's de-
sires perfectly," the publicity di-
rector announced.
Preparations for Mr. Glitter-
more's arrival are r u n n i n g
smoothly, he reported this morn-
ing. Glittermore will be at the
business administration school at
12:45 p.m., as scheduled, formally
attired, to deliver his lecture,

Glittermore's consent to address
the University students represents
a change in policy, the publicity
director stated. He rarely has time
to spend lecturing, but because of
his pleasant memories of under-
graduate days here, he is giving
his time..
He wants future businessmen to
face the world with the benefit of
his words.
"I am anxious to renew ac-
quaintance with this business ty-
coon," Dean Stevenson of the
School of Business Administra-
tion said, and added that he hopes
Glittermore will be able to spare
a few minutes to advise him on
gold mining investments.

People tell me that the last game was tremendous. Personally I
wouldn't know.
My ticket entitles me a fine seat on the forty yard line, up just
high enough in the stands so that I have a fine view of the field. This
pleased me very much, before I found out what other people have fine
seats on the forty yard line, up just high enough so that they have a
fine view of. the field.
THAT IS WHERE the trouble begins. They say that there is one
in every crowd, but from where I sit, it's a whole crowd, bar none.
The first play started off well enough, and I was just con-
gratulating myself on having such a good seat, when the blow fell,
and I do mean literally! Ortmann had just thrown a pass, and one
of my stadium neighbors got so excited that he began throwing
passes, too, right at my back, and believe me, no football could
have landed any harder.
Recovering from this I was just in time to see the Michigan team
forming for a fourth down on the one yard line. That was all I saw.
Before my eyes there was suddenly a blur of maize and blue.
I THOUGHT for a moment that it was just a reaction from the
blow I had sustained, but no such luck. The gal who sits in front of
me is the original 'pom-pom' kid. Instead of just cheering, she has to
wave pom-poms!
Since I couldn't see anything, I contended myself with the
thought that at least I could hear what was going on over the
public address system. That was before I encountered 'Joe Blow'
and his friend.
The rude awakening came very soon, however. The announcer
had just begun to speak, but instead of hearing who had made the
touchdown, I go.t an earful of "'come on Mich, show em what ya got.
Get in there and kill em." That was Joe!
* * *a *
SCORE of the Notre Dame game coming from the other side as-
sured me that I hadn't lost my hearing. Joe's buddy, it seems, is one
of those people who has to bring a radio to the game-but not to listen
to the Michigan game.
I may not know much about the games I went to the stadium
to see, but I can discourse at great length on how the teams of
Notre Dame, Southern California, Army and Cornell are doing.
This little radio has even helped me to pick up quite a bit of
knowledge about what's new in Washington and down on the farm.
"Never say die"-that's my motto. From now on I'll enjoy the
games in peace. I'm going to stay at home and listen to them on the
radio. I'll leave my friends on the forty line to torture each other.
After some reflection, I've come to the conclusion that they just prove
the old saying "it takes all kinds of people to make a world. They add
the variety that makes it such a gay life.

Posture Cinic
To A idCo-eds
Those who have foot and pos-
ture defects, better known as a
slump and a slouch, have an op-
portunity to overcome these de-
fects under trained supervision.
The Women's Physical Educa-
tion Department is offeringncor-
rective foot and posture clinics
scheduled for several differentl
hours during the week. Any wo-
man student may go to the clinic
and does not obligate herself by
Clinics care for posture defects
which can be corrected by exer-
Carrying out the recommenda-
tions of the clinic is up to the in-
dividual. The instructors explain
how to correct the posture, sug-
gest exercises to help hold it, and
providerthose interested with a
knowledge of what good posture is
and a feeling for it.
The same thing is true in re-
medieing foot defects. The clinic
makes the student conscious of
the defect and explains how it can
be corrected.
Exercises recommended by the
clinic may be practiced at home.
However, it may be more desirable
to work at the clinic under super-
vision at first.
Medical defects are not handled
through this clinic, but are re-
ferred to Health Service.
Clinics are held in the Correc-
tive Room in Barbour Gymnasium.
Posture clinics are on Wednesday
from 9 to 10 a.m. and 1-2 p.m.,

Currently holding down the of-
fice of vice-president of the Lea-
gue, Miss Wilhelm finds her days
filled with meetings concerning

addition, she is constantly on call
as the League president's right

GAVELS SEEM to have a ten-
dency to keep constant company
with Miss Wilhelm, for she has
been president of Kappa Delta sor-
ority for the past two years.
What with conducting chap-
ter meetings, pacifying members
and listening to the chief woes
and complaints voiced through-
out the house, it seems that this
dark haired bundle of energy
should never be able to find
time for studying.
Her initiation into Scroll, honor
society for affiliated senior wo-
men, will add testimony, though,
to the fact that her crowded sche-
dule seems to be able to stretch
enough to includetime for the
1studying which her art school
classes demand.
As proof of her ability in this
field, Miss Wilhelm has recently
been asked to illustrate a forth-

behind the bandstand at last
year's Panhel Ball was also a

boundless energy.
Miss Wilhelm's activities have
not all been within the last two
years, though, for she served as
