Women Learn Theory,
Technique, Advantages
Of Physical Education
Women physical education ma-
jors are no longer considered to
be tomboys or amazons nor are
they considered to have the easi-
est curriculum.
This curriculum doesn't consist
simply of playing games, much
more is involved.
A good deal of a physical edu-
cation major's time is spent in
bettering herself in the various
sports. Included in this training
is the learning of the theory and
the techniques of each atheletic
Demonstrate Sports
Physical education majors must
be able to demonstrate the sports
and they must alsb be able to
teach them correctly and efficient-
ly. A major should also be able to
coach and analyze most sports as
well as knowing how to officiate
in contests.
In addition to her knowledge of
sports she must have a major in
science, two semesters of student
teaching and a certain number of
hours required by the School of
Also included in her already
busy schedule are the courses re-
quired for a minor. Women take
advantage of this opportunity by
opposing different fields such as
English or a foreign language.
Physical Education Club
Combining work and pleasure
women majoring or minoring in
physical education are members of
the Women's Physical Education
Club. This club sponsors round-
robin tournaments and travel
Opportunities for women physi-
cal education majors include
teaching jobs in elementary
and high school.
Physical education training also
provides a good foundation for
professional training in the field
of physical therapy and other spe-
cialized work in orthopedic hospi-

Because the program is such an
extensive one, women applying
for the counseling jobs should not
be in summer school.

They were at the campus swimming pool. She was standing on the
diving board-lithe, young, vibrant. He came swimming over. "Hey,"
he called, climbing up on the board, "was it you who made that divq
a minute ago?"
She nodded-lithe, young, vibrant.
"Whew!" he whistled. "That was some dive! A back jackknife two
and a half twist full gainer swan. Where did you learn to dive
like that?"
"I fell'off the board," she explained.
"Oh," he said. He looked at her-lithe, young, vibrant. "Let's ge
steady," he said.
"But I don't know anything about you," she said.
"What's there to know?" he said. "I'n a typical American college
man-young, healthy, and broke."
"That's good enough for me," she said, "for I am not interested in
money. I am a girl of simple tastes -lithe, young, vibrant."
"Dad!" he whispered.
"Crazy!" she breathed.
Their lips met. Their arms twined. They fell off the board.
"If you only knew," he said later, as he applied artificial respira-
tion, "how long I have been looking for a lithe, young, vibrant girl of
simple tastes, for though my heart is large and full of love, my purse
is lean and meagre. My cruel father sends me an allowance barely
large enough to support life. So I have been looking high and low for
a girl of simple tastes."
"Search no more," she said. "My tastes are simple; my wants are
few. Just take me riding in a long, sleek, new yellow convertible,
and I am content."
"Goodbye," he said and ran away as fast as his chubby little legs
could carry him, for he knew this girl was not for the likes of him.
He had neither convertible nor hardtop, nor the money to buy one,
nor the means to get the money, short of picking up his stingy father
by the ankles and shaking him till his wallet fell out, No, there was
nothing for it except to forget this girl.
But lying on his pallet at the dormitory, he could not get her
out of his mind and finally he knew that whatever the expense, he
had to have her-lithe, young, vibrant.
So he sold a few things-his textbooks, his overcoat, his hi-Y pin,
his roommate's truss-and soon he had accumulated a goodly sum. He
went to a place that sold automobiles. "How much does it cost," he
said, "to buy a yellow convertible automobile?"
The man told him. He collapsed in a gibbering heap.
After a while he stirred and shambled home. But on the way he
passed a place with a big sign that said: RENT A CAR-DRIVE
YOURSELF. Hope came into our hero's eyes. He went inside. "How
much does it cost," he said, "to rent a yellow convertible automobile?"
"Ten dollars a day, plus seven cents a mile," said the man.
"Done and done," said our hero, and soon he drove away in a long,
sleek, new, yellow convertible.
"Oh, goody!" said the lithe, young, vibrant girl when she saw the
car. "This suits my simple tastes to a T. Come, let us speed over
rolling highways and through bosky dells."
And away they went. They drove north, they drove south, they
drove fast, they drove slow, they drove east, they drove west, they
drove and drove and drove and, finally, tired but happy, they parked
high on a windswept hill.
"Philip Morris?" he said.
"Yum, yum!" she said.
They lit up. She snuggled against him. "You know," he said, "you
are like a Philip Morris-mild and fresh and relaxing."
"But there is a big difference between me and Philip Morris,"
said she. "They're available in king-size and regular, and I am only
available in regular."
They laughed. They kissed. He screamed.
"What is it,dear man?" cried she, alarmed.
"The speedometer," he said. "I just xoticed. We put on 200 miles
tonight, and this car costs seven cents a mile, and I have only $14
"But that's exactly enough," she said.
"Yes," he said, "but we still have to drive home, and that will put
a lot more miles on the car. Where will I get the money to pay
for that?"
"Gee, I don't know," said she.
"Me neither," he said glumly. He started the motor and backed
out of the parking place.
"Hey, look!" said the girl. "The speedometer doesn't move when
you're backing up."
