WAA.. .
Although this week concludes all
physical education classes for the
year, the Women's Athletic Build-
ing will be open throughout the
exam period.
To relieve the tension of last-
minute cramming for exams, stu-
dents may find relaxation by
playing tennis matches or golf.
Now students will have a chance
to apply their skills outside of
class and take advantage of the
things they have learned in their
physical education courses.
The use of tennis courts is facil-
itated for all women at the WAB
by the barring of men unless they
are playing with women.
Women players have the choice
of the courts over mixed players,
while men can play only if there
are unwanted courts.
Students who would like to take
advantage of the opportunities for
some physical exercise in addition
to their mental work, may obtain
tennis racquets and golf clubs
which are available for a small

Parents, Announce Womens' Engagements

"My burning ambition in life is
to be a good writer," is the goal
expressed by the senior class presi-
dent of the literary college.
Upon graduation, Roger Wilkins,
who is majoring in political
science, plans to get an immediate
job in the publications field but
later wants to be a fiction writer.
Wilkins became interested in
writing by observing people in
their everyday activities and
their differing reactions to the
same situation. He enjoys going
to unfamiliar places, and talk-
ing to odd personalities. "Since
people will be in my writing, I
want to assimilate different
ideas" says Wilkins.
During his University days, Wil-
kins has engaged in various acti-
vities. In his freshman year he
ran on the track team and also
served on the Strauss house coun-
As a sophomore, he was elected
president of the National Associa-
tion for the Advancement of Col-
lege Degrees and ran for Student

In his third year Wilkins served
as chairman of the Human Rela-
tions committee of SL and in the
spring acted as member at large
of the SL cabinet. In addition, he
was tapped for Sphinx.
"Shivering Shanks" was the
title Wilkins acquired when in-
itiated into the Michigamua. He
is also an active member of the
Kappa Alpha Psi.
Hailing from Grand Rapids,
Wilkins is an ardent Democrat
and great Stevenson supporter. He
is also a fervent rooter for the New
York Yankees.
Wilkins most enjoys himself
when his shoes are off and he gets
a thrill from writing poetry, say-
ing, "Perhaps I like to write be-
cause I can always have my shoes
off when I'm pounding on a type-
It is Wilkin's opinion that he is
the most unmusical person living
and he says "If you'd ask the girl
I'm pinned to, she'd very readily
tell you I can't dance either."
Although at first Wilkins en-
tered activities and approached
life with a youthful, idealistic

zeal, at the age of 21 he admits
he has acquired a "somewhat
cynical attitude." He wants to
agree with Hobbs that "Life is
nasty, cruel . .. make the most
of it."
Believing in individualistic val
ues, Wilkins thinks that it is most
important to be happy and secure
"If you are frustrated yourself,
you can't go and advise others,
you'll only make a mess of every-
thing," he feels.
Wilkins also spent one summer
working on a mail route in his
home town. "Delivering mail was-
n't bad at all. If I fail as a writer,
I'll be a mailman," stated Wilkins.
