as they want or dare and come to
the "Bluebook Ball."

While most people will pack
books for a trip to the library this

The class usually meets every
Friday at the WAB from 2 to 5
p.m. where it samples various
phases of playground and camp
leadership, such as star study,
handicraft, simple ball games, hob-
bies, water sports, story telling and
first aid.
About a week ago the class was
engaged in one of its more intel-

J-Hop Committee Promises
Dance To Continue Tradition

Because of the drop in enroll-
ment that is expected next year,
J-Hop is returning to the pre-
war system of a one-night dance.
This year's committee promises
that the change back to one night
will make no difference in the
customary J-Hop weekend.
* * *
THE TRADITION of holding
the annual junior hop in this
manner was in use between the
years of 1946 and 1952. It was
necessary to accommodate the in-
creased post-war enrollment.
Four o'clock late permission
will still be granted, for both
Friday and Saturday nights.
The annual affair, which is the
junior class' service to the gradu-
ating seniors, has a long and live-
ly history.
* * *
IT ALL BEGAN 75 years ago in
1877 when a grand. total of 20
couples attended the dance.
In past years women have
come from afar to attend the
biggest dance of the year, and
their dates have provided hous-
ing for them in the fraternity
houses to which the men are af-
filiated or in a rooming house
or dormitory.
Many couples fron colleges in
Michigan come to Ann Arbor for
the weekend as well as couples
from out-state universities.

WOMEN GUESTS arrive on
Friday afternoon. On the night
J-Hop isn't presented this year
parties will be held the same as
in former years.

Although women at the Univer-
sity have no "varsity" competi-
tion, the Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation has set up an intramural,
and extramural program to in-
clude all coeds.
B i g g e s t participation takes
place in the intramural volleyball,'
basketball and softball tourna-
-* * -
EACH WOMEN'S sorority, dor-
mitory or league house is urged
to enter as many teams as they
are able to form.
The athletic manager from
each house organizes these
teams, appoints captains and
keeps them informed on tour-
nament progress as well as
other WAA activities.
Sorority, dormitory and league
house managers, members of the
WAA executive board, are in
charge of these tournaments.
These three work in cooperation
with the vice-president in charge
of student relations to coordinate
the houses and to work out any
problems which may arise during
the year.
BASIC -RULES used in intra-
murals are those in the Official
Sports Guides, published by the
National Section on Women's
Athletics, with slight modification
to take care of specific situations
in any sport.
All games are officiated by
faculty members as well as stu-
dents, who, in most cases, h'old

IN ADDITION to these tourna-

ments, the WAA clubs usually
hold open tournaments, inviting
the whole campus to participate.
On occasion a tournament may be
limited to club membership.
Because of the time, expense,
transportation, chaperonage and
other items involved, little em-
phasis is placed on the extra-
mural program.
Some of the cluos, however, do,
schedule extramural activities.
These include the Hockey,-Bas-
ketball and Softball Clubs.

schools are often held by the Rifle
