Skating Club Gains Popular Acclaim

Figure skating was promoted on
a large scale in Ann Arbor in 1939,
when a group of local residents and
University people felt the need of
a figure-skating club to encourage
this sport in the community.
The club has now grown to a
membership of approximately 350,
with a waiting list of 300. Because
of limited use of University facili-
ties, prospective members have had
to wait three years before joining
the club, and the son of one of
the members was placed on the
waiting list before he was born!
After overcoming restrictions in
facilities, however, all that is need-
ed to join the club is a legitimate
interest in figure skating and pos-
session of a pair of figure skates.
Four Groups
The club is organized on the ba-
sis of four groups: Junior Divi-
sion, in which small children up to
the age of 10 or 12 participate; In-
termediate Division, with members
from 12 to 18; Senior Division,
with members above age 18; and
Non-Group Division for skaters
who do not wish or need group in-
Instruction is given by two pro-
fessionals, Mary Frances Freschke,
and Nancy Mineard. Both Miss
Greschke and Miss Mineard are
holders of the United States Figure
Skating Association Gold Figure
Medal and Silver Dance Medal.
Skating within the divisions is
organized with three basic activi-
ties. These are "Patch," or com-
pulsory figures which must be
practiced before the skater moves
on to "dance," which is dancing
on ice with a partner to music and
to prescribed choreography, and]
'free-skating," which is interpre-
tive dancing to music.
The Ann Arbor Club is a mem-
ber of the United States Figure
Skating Association which has
groups In cities throughout the
country. Through this organiza-
tion, skaters work up to the Inter-
national Olympic Gamnes. In addi-
tion, members of figure skating
clubs are welcome guests of the
club of any other city.
The Ann Arbor Figure Skating
Club's activities consist of pre-
senting programs at ice shows in

parts: Cosmic Collision, Cactus

The School of Music is looking
for guinea pigs,
"So many people apply for pi-
ano lessons," Prof. Helen Titus of
the music school said, "and we
have neither the facilities nor the
personnel to handle them."
"We are faced with asking for
guinea pigs, rather a limited num-
ber of students, for the practice
teachers to work with. At present,
our piano department can take
only music school students or de-
grec candidates.
"The reason for this project will
be to find students who have had
piano training so that they can
help our practice teachers gain ex-

There is no credit for the course
and no fee. It will be a course in

"We will talk about how to
study and present music to stu-
dents and how to develop tech-
niques at the keyboard."
