Board Plans
Blazer Sale,
Tournaments
By DEEDY ROBERTSON
Every coed enterng the Univer-
sity automatically becomes a mem-
ber of the Women's Athletic As-
sociation for the duration of her
college days here.
Many varied and interesting ac-
tivities on campus are under the
responsibility of the WAA. Mem-
bers of the Executive Board plan
and carry out the functions, deter-
mine matters of policy for' the
WAA, discuss problems of the
sports clubs and aid in making
special projects a success.
WAA President Jaylee Duke
presides over Board meetings.
Membership is comprised of exec-
utive members and club managers
of fencing, basketball, rifle, ten-
nis, bowling, golf, field hockey,
Michifish, camp counselors and
speed swimming.
Co-Rec Clubs
Board membership also includes
heads of the co-recreational clubs
inelutding riding, ice-skating, mod-
ern dance, ballet and badminton.
One of the most important proj-
ets of the WAA Board is the
sponsorship of several inta-mural
sports tournaments among campus
coed residence groups.
Each group may enter as many
teams from their house as they
wish. Every house athletic man-
ager is in charge of organizing
her house teams.
Other Contests
Other contests which have
proved to be quite successful in-
clude swimming meets, badminton,
golf, ping-pong, tennis and bowl-
ing.
One of the most active groups
in the WAA program is the House
Athletic Managers Club. Repre-
sentatives from each housing unit
on campus make up the member-
ship
These coeds act as co-ordinators
for WAA activities within their
housing units. They can provide
information concerning a specific
club 'or activity.
The house athletic managers
alpo draw up all the rules for the
all-campus tournaments and en-
list players for their house teams.
They also work out anyhproblems
that may arise during the year.
'Co-Rec Nights'
To Be Featured
At -M Building
The Aramural Building is the
scene of varied activities through-
out the school year.
As its name implies, the IM
Building is used primarily for in-
tramural sports between various
men's housing units and fraterni-
ties on campus.
But when there is a big dance,
such as Homecoming or J-Hop, this
building undergoes a "face-lifting"
and becomes the scene of gaiety or
fantasy as unusual themes are
carried out.
Every Friday night throughout
the year, the IM Building is invad-
ed by coeds as men often take their
dates to co-recreational nights,
where athletic activities by the
dozens can be participated in .
Swimming is one of the favcritea
past times during "Co-Rec" nights.
Ping-pong, paddle ball, and volley;
ball provide-fun for many, while
work on the trampoline or tricks on
the mats are enjoyed by more en-
ergetic participants.

MICHIFISH AND THE FENCING CLUB ARE AMONG THE NUMEROUS SPORTS ORGANIATIONS OFFERED BY THE WOMEN'S
ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION, IN ADDITION TO THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES FOR FRESHMEN AND TRANS-
FER WOMEN. THE CLUBS ARE FOR BOTH THE EXPERIENCED AND INEXPERIENCED PLAYERS.

cal stores. Coeds will be modeling
while a narrator explains the ac-
tivities of the clubs to acquaint
new students with WAA.
Appropriate clothes for all oc-
casions will be shown and questions
may be asked during the show.
The WAA also sponsors a sale of
desk calendars, published by the
Alumni Council. They will be
available in the fall for a price of
75 cents.
Yellow And Blue
Decked with a traditional yellow
and blue. cover, the calendars ex-
tend from January to December,
1956. Pictures of familiar campus
scenes are alternated with actual
calendar pages.
Space is allowed on each page
for writing down assignments, ap-
pointments and special events.
Many coeds have used these cal-
endars for a diary to keep a rec-
ord of their college life.
To explain the fundamental
rules and highlights of football to
wondering coeds, a clinic will be
sponsored for the third consecu-
tive time with Wally Weber, coach
of the freshman team, speaking.
Terms Explained"
Although the date for the event
is not set, it will be held during
the first few weeks of school. Ques-
tions on the split-T, double wing,
wing back formations and other
football terminology and strategy
will be explained.
Another important WAA project
will be the sale of "official" Michi-
gan blazers during the first week
of school and again in the spring.
Available in charcoal, navy blue
and white, piping to match decor-
ates the jackets in a choice of
colors at no extra cost. The Uni-
versity crest also adds a collegiate
touch to the jackets.

Sports Clubs Prepare Programs

With a program geared to meet
the tastes of both the inexperi-
enced and advanced player, the
Women's Athletic Association is
now launching into its 62nd year
with a host of available activities.
As the year progresses, 14 WAA
clubs will swing into a varied pro-
gram of sports, dance groups, in-
ter-house tournaments and special
projects.
To give the incoming freshman
a better idea of what these clubs
do, club managers have briefly
mentioned some of their organiza-
tions' activities.
Basketball Club
Club manager LuAnn Austin
commented "Many activities have
been planned to give the student
a better playing knowledge of the
game, such as practice sessions,
intra-club games and playdays."
Meeting in Barbour Gymnasium,
club members may find recrea-
tional opportunities'while improv-
ing their skill in the sport.
All University coeds are eligi-
ble to join this WAA group which
will begin functioning in Novem-
ber.
Camp Counselors Club
Membership in this club is open
to all women interested in camp-
ing activities. Joan Sayles, man-
ager of the group, mentioned "Not
only is there recreational enjoy-
ment but there is also an excel-
lent opportunity to learn skill
which will be of value to counsel-
ors."
The program for the coming
school year will include outdoor
activity, counseling techniques
and many other camping activi-
ties.
Overnights, bike hikes, handi-
craft skill, camping trips, cook-
outs, a "Camp Counselors Day"
and discussions on various types
of camps have been planned.
Fencing Club
Open to all women whether they
have had previous fencing experi-
ence or not, planned activities will
include practice, club tournaments
and guest instructors.
"Playdays with other schools
will also be on the agenda," ac-
cording to club manager, Judy
Stover.
In previous years only advanced
players could belong to the group,

even then, only after passing the
tryouts. However, now any coeds
may join the club.
Field Hockey Club
Sally Lyon, manager of the club,
has planned instruction in field
hockey techniques and team play
in addition to inter-school match-
es, as part of the club program
for the coming year.
Both beginners and experienced
players may participate. Shin
guards and hockey sticks are pro-
vided by the Women's Physical
Education Department.
Since hockey is a fast, competi-
tive team sport, Miss Lyon has
guaranteed a lot of fun and whole-
some outdoor exercise for partici-
pants.
Golf Club
All coeds with some golf play-
ing experience are eligible to join
the club.
A team will be selected from
the lowest eight scores from a club
tournament.
Kay Leo, club manager, men-
tioned that instruction and tour-
naments with other schools will
also be a part of the planned pro-
gram.
Veteran golfer and club advisor
Mrs. Violet Hanley will be on hand
to give valuable planning tips to
members of the club.
Junior and Senior Michifish

ested in synchronized swimming
may belong to this group. Accord-
ing to each coed's individual abili-
ty and interest, members for the

ings held in the WAB.

son include a co-recreational tour-
nament and club matches," Carol

ported. "On top of these activi-
ties, a women's singles and dou-
bles tournament," she added, "will

A Jeweler's Name, his good reputation, is his unique quality, the
quality that sets him apare from every other jeweler. And a REGISTERED
Jeweler of the AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY carries a name that stands
for integrity, for scholarship in the science of good gems, and for experience.
A name, a good name, does not spring up full-bloom overnight.
It starts from a seed, sends up slender shoots, grows, becomes sturdy,
then blossoms into 'maturity. That was the way it was with the name of the
American Gem Society.
It started with a seed, an idea, an ideal. A group of jewelers wanted
to aid and protect the public in its purchase of gems, wanted to assure
themof both pleasure and satisfaction . . . pleasure for the eye and the
satisfaction of perfect confidence in the quality of the jewels purchased.
Convinced that the true mark of civilization is cooperation, these founders
of the Society believed that by giving the public fair and skillful service,
they would in return receive the public's confidence and patronage .
to the mutual satisfaction and advantage of both seller and buyer.
A seed, however, is not enough. It must be planted. An idea must be
given tangible form. So the beginning of the Society was the determining
standards of excellence. . . . excellence of scholarship, of business ethics
and of practical experience.

In communities all across the United States, fine jewelers have heard
of the Society and its purposes, have applied for membership and been elected.
Large firms and small, all equally sharing the same high purpose, have
pledged themselves in this service to the public . . . to YOU, and
