Blazer Sales ...
One of the most popular articles
of wearing apparel seen on the
University campus is blazers.
At the beginning of each semes-
ter the Women's Athletic Associ-
ation sponsors a blazer sale.
The "official" University blazer
for coeds, featuring a crest on the
pocket, will be on sale Thursday

and Friday, Sept. 27 and 28 at the
Women's Swimming Pool.
Coeds may also order matching
and contrasting skirts and Ber-
muda shorts at this time. These
will be available in a variety of
styles, colors and materials which
will complement the blazers.
During the order sessions per-
sonal fittings will be made, with
no extra charge for alterations
except for shortening sleeves.
When the order is placed a $5
deposit will be required as a down
payment. The remainder can be
paid when the blazers arrive.
The University seal on the pock-
et and a choice of colors for pip-
ing on the jacket edges are out-
standing features of the blazer.
An extrabpocket is also included
with each blazer. After a student
graduates this pocket may be used
to replace the crested pocket.
In charge of the sale this year
will be the house athletic man-
agers, with allhprofits from the
sale going to the WAA.

portant on the University campus

ly are in full swing every Friday

simply getting away from studies.

quired during the summer.
You must provide your own
bathing suit, but towels will be

staffs. Women are asked to wear
bathing caps.
Ups and Downs
In the past few years many
have taken their "ups and downs"
on the trampoline.

1951. It attracts coeds who are in-
terested in learning "tramp" pro-
cedures and in acquiring skill in
in the execution of somesaults,
flips and various other maneuvers.
