Badminton Club.. .
Students who would enjoy get-
ting their exercise by "batting the
bird" will have their opportunity
in the Badminton Club, which will
hold its organizational meeting at-
7:30 p.m. tomorrow in Barbot3'
The club, sponsored by the
Women's Athletic Association, will
welcome both men and women
who are familiar with the game
and have some playing experience.
Racquets are furnished through
the Women's Physical Education
Department, but students must
furnish their own birds.
A weekly meeting will be decid-
ed by members at the organiza-
tional gathering.
Membership in the club pro-
vides an opportunity for women
to practice for the all-campus
women's badminton tournament,
which will be held in the spring.
'The tournament is an annual
Club members and other bad-
minton fans are also able to prac-
tice their skills each Friday night
at the co-rec nights at the Intra-
mt~al Building. Six courts are
available for student use.
This year, as in past years, the
IM staff and the WAA, sponsors
of the co-rec nights, have planned
a mixed doubles tournament. More
information will be available to
Interested students at a later date.

Calendar Sales,.
Students troubled with remem-
bering dates-the social as well as
the calendar variety-will have an
opportunity to purchase desk cal-
endars beginning this week in
their residences.
These calendars, published by
the Alumni Council and sold by
the Women's Athletic Association,
will be availbale for the price of
75 cents.
The "date book" sale will last
until the supply is gone. Houses
will be contacted by members of
the WAA Board.
Extending from January, 1953
to December of the same year, the
calendar has the traditional yel-
low and blue cover. Pictures of
familiar campus scenes are inter-
spersed with the actual calendar
These pages allow space below
each date for writing down as-
signments, appointments and spe-
cial events. Many coeds in past
years have used the calendars for
a diary, to keep a record of their
college life.
Profits from the sale will be
used by the WAA Board for its
many projects. WAA sponsors 17
sports clubs, eight of which are co-
recreational organizations wel-
coming both men and women
In addition, each year the As-
sociation presents Lantern Night,
all-campus women's sing honor-
ing senior women.
Every other year WAA, in co-
operation with the Men's Union,
presents Michigras, a carnival
held in Yost Field House in which
most of the houses on campts
take part.
This year, in place of the usual
Tennis Ball, an open air dance
held on the tennis courts at Palm-
er Field, the, two groups hope to
sponsor a Spring Weekend, begin-
ning on a Friday and extending
through Saturday night.

Upsets galore! No one dares to
predict who's going to win or
what's going to happen at the
weekly Union-League sponsored
bridge nights.
While the directors, Conrad
Proctor, Frank Klaasse, Herb Le-
vine and Bobb Hardies have had
to refuse the first place prize the
first two weeks, last Wednesday's
session produced four new champs.
Accepting cans of assorted nuts
and ball point pens as their tro-

Jam Session Series;
Alleycats To Perform
Traveling through campus on
bicycles, black-robed members of
Scroll, local honorary for affiliat-
ed senior women, tapped five new
members recently.
Stopping traffic wherever they
went, members stopped first at
Alpha Epsilon Phi where Cyrille
Landes was tapped. From there
they rode to Alpha Xi Delta where
they tapped Jan Gast.

ON THEIR way to Kappa Kap-
pa Gamma, the women rode
through the Law Quad where they
were greeted with hoots and hol-
lers from the disgruntled lawyers.
After going from the basement to
third floor of the Kappa house,
singing all the time, the women
finally succeeded in tapping Bet-
ty Comstock.
They then went to Sigma
Delta Tau where they tapped
Peggy Zager. The trip around
campus ended at the Alpha
Omicron Pi House where, ac-
companied by grumbles from the
others in the dorm who had been
sleeping soundly, they tapped
Sue Jacobsen.
As each member was tapped,
she received a cardboard scroll
which she wore about her neck the
following day. At the initiation in
the League Chapel new members
received a symbol of their mem-
bership in the form of a necklace
with a small gold medal in the
shape of a scroll.
