WAA Sponsors Athletic Managers Club
By PAT SMITH
First semester freshmen are
eligible for WAA activities.
As a matter of fact, the Wo-
men's Athletics Association and its
many projects are open to every
campus coed from the time she
enters as a freshman until she
stands with a diploma clutched
in her hand.
THE VARIOUS sport clubs
cover just about all activities im-
aginable. A woman may join any
of them regardless of experience
or lack of experience in the chos-
en activity. All one needs is plenty
of enthusiasm and interest. The
club provides practice and in-
struction as well as many lasting

tournaments between house
teams. The first in the
fall is the volleyball tourna-
ment. During the w i n t e r
months, basketball is the tour-
nament sport. In the spring, a
young coed's fancy lightly
turns to thoughts of softball.
One of the very best ways to
get acquainted with dorm mates
is to join a house team. A coed
does not have to be a professional
player to be on a team. The prime
requirement is interest. -
TOURNAMENT PLAY follows
a ladder elimination to the final
play-off for the championship.
Teams which win their first games
are automatically members of
the 'A' league; those losing their
first game are in the 'B' league.
After the first game, each team
plays until eliminated.
Residence houses may enter
one or more teams in a tourna-
ment. For each team entered
the house receives participation
points. The residence which ac-
cumulates the most participa-
tion points receives recognition
on Lantern Night.
Individual tournaments include
play-offs in ping pong, tennis,
badminton, and other sports
sponsored by the various clubs.
In the fall there will be an all-
campus women's swimming meet
at the Union Pool.

EVERY HOUSE on campus has
its own athletic manager, elected
in the spring. The WAA sponsors
an athletic managers club which
discusses rules. At these meetings
managers also learn the dates of
club meetings and any news and
information which pertains to
WAA activities. Managers are res-
ponsible for seeing that the resi-
dents of their individual houses
receive this information.
This year the WAA is print-
ing an athletic manager's
booklet which will explain the
participation point system and
cover tournament rules more
If the athletic manager is un-
able to answer certain questions
pertaining to any of the clubs or
activities, the WAA asks students
to call the club managers.
THERE'S A HOLE IN MY RACKET"-Tennis enthusiasts can
polish up on their "racketeering" in the intermediate and ad-
vanced tennis classes offered by the women's physical education
department. Beginning classes are held for those who cannot
quite get the racket and ball to join forces.
CRACKING THE BOOKS:
Proper Study Habits Essential
A new insight and knowledge of
play and rules may be gained by
sports lovers who become members
of the WAA Officials and Coaching
Club membership is open to any
coed who is interested in learning
new plays and methods which
would be useful in coaching or who
would like to officiate. Experience
is not a prerequisite. The club is
primarily for those who want to
learn to develop certain skills.
* * *
PURPOSE of the club is two-
fold. It will be divided into two
sections, one for coaching train-
ing and the other for officiating.
It is designed to help those
who are interested in officiating
intramural games or working in
a situation where good officiat-
ing is desired.
It is also to train women inter-
ested in coaching and to teach
them the methods and knowledge
of a game.
* * *
EMPHASIS will be on the gen-
eral skills used in a particular
sport, as well as definite plays to
be used in a game situation. The
members may even coach intra-
mural tournament teams.
Each of the two sections of
the club meet once each week.
Some meetings will be coordin-
ate; that is, the coaches will play
a game using their new know-
ledge, while the officials will
practice officiating. A member
of the officials division who
wants practice will officiate in
academic classes and in intra-
Both sections of the club meet
all year and three sports are cov-
ered - volleyball, basketball and
softball. Coeds may join for any
season they wish and will receive
participation points, even if they
only take part during one season.
Guests from the women's physi-
cal education staff will be invited
often to speak before both sections
of the club. Other special plans
include attending coaching and
officiating clinics at nearby

This year the WAA will strive
for 100 per cent participation in
sports by all women on campus.
To achieve 100 per cent participa-

the school year.

through the year.

After the last thrill of orienta-
tion week and the new wonder-
ment of Michigan has worn off, it
will be time to start your classes.
And with the beginning of class-
es comes the thoughts of studying.
Studying is a vital part of college
life, and it is important to make a
FIRST OF ALL where to study?
It is essential to have a definite
place. This place should come to
mean study to you. It should be a
spot where you can be relatively
free from interruptions. Be sure
the room is well ventilated and
comfortable-but not too comfort-
Time is a very important ele-
ment in college. You will need
to budget your time very care-
fully in order to plan when you
are going to study.
It's a good idea to make a
schedule or a time chart. Allow
time for the number of hours that
you will be attending class, ade-
quate preparation for classes, and
THERE WILL BE times when
you may have to vary the schedule
a little, but an honest effort to ob-
serve it carefully will pay divi-
It is best to study when you
are fresh. Make your study per-
iods long enough so that you
really get something done, but
not so long that you become fa-
Plan your courses carefully.
Choose subjects that will interest
you and will be a part of your
objectives. Get off to a good start
and keep on with it. Do your work
on time. Getting your daily as-
signments done is essential.

ATTEND classes regularly and
with spirit. Keep yourself in a
good mental and physical condi-
tion. Eat, sleep, and exercise regu-
larly. Attend to all illnesses im-
mediately, minor ones too. Avoid
Really concentrate when you
study. Forget everything else,
and don't make a habit of inter-
rupting your studying. Remem-
ber - "Procrastination is the
thief of time."
Peppy Variety Show,
Spark Annual Event
Two gala, talent-filled evenings
known traditionally as Sophomore
Cabaret, are held each year
through the combined efforts of
the women of the sophomore class.
"Soph Cab," as it is popularly
called, had its auspicious begin-
ning twenty-three years ago, with
the presentation of "Bungling
Brothers Circus" in Angell Hall.
IT HAS BEEN an annual event
since that time, receiving its of-
ficial name in 1929, when 350 wo-
men participated in entertaining
the campus crowd.
Each year it has been a varie-
ty show with novelty booths.
Couples may dance and enjoy
the atmosphere of a genuine
In the years following the 1927
opening, "Soph Cab" moved from
.Angell Hall to Barbour Gymna-
Uium, before finally coming to
rest in the League, where it takes
over the entire second floor for
its presentation each December.
