Any University woman interest-
ed in riflry is invited to join and
learn to be an expert marksman.
Instruction will be provided.
T h i s year a shoulder-to-
shoulder match is being scheduled
with the men's rifle team, an

last meeting of the basketball club,
the Army and the Navy meet in
the final "battle of the year."
Open to all women students, the
club gives all who are interested

the opportunity to learn and prac-
tice their basketball skills.
At meetings each Friday during
the winter months, members play
for rating sessions, participate in
college play-days and experiment
with various rule changes.
This year a game has been
planned with the Physical Edu-
cation faculty. In addition, the
losers of the Army-Navy game will
treat the winners to a "coke" at
the final meeting.
Softball--The Softball club has
the distinction of being the last

the club meets only during the
spring months.

ter-club games and extramural
events. Membership in the club
will be based on skill, and all co-
eds are invited to try out.

Houses Enter
Teams In
Although women at the Uni-
versity have no "varsity" competi-
tion, the Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation has set up an intramural
and extramural program to in-
clude all coeds.
Biggest participation takes place
in the intramural volley-ball, bas-
ketball and softball tournaments.
is held in the fall, followed by bas-
ketball during the winter months.
The season is concluded with a
softball tournament in the spring.
Each women's sorority, dormi-
tory 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, ap-
points captains and keeps her
house informed on tournament

progress as well as other WAA ac-
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 intramur-
als are those in the Official
Sports Guides, published by the
National Section on Women's
Athletics, with slight modifica-
tions to take care of specific sit-
uations in any sport.'
All games a.e officiated by fac-
ulty members as well as students,
who,. in most cases, hold ratings
in the sports which they offici-

TEAMS winning their first
games are members of the "A"
league, while first game losers are
placed in the "B" league. After
the first game, each team plays
until losing a game, which auto-
matically eliminates its members
from the tournament. Play fol-
lows a ladder elimination.
Individuals get their "chance
to shine'' in sports such as ping-
pong, tennis and badminton.
An all-campus swimming meet
is also held. These ipdividual
tournaments are sponsored by
the various WAA clubs.
The only requirement for par-
ticipation in the intramural sports
program is an interest in the ac.
tivities. Players have the oppor-
tunity to learn new games and to
meet new friends in a competitive
