THE MTCHTGAN BITTN
Champion Teaches Women's Golf
U' Coeds Complete Season
With Spring Sport Playoffs

"If there is one thing that I am
proud of, it's that girls have re-
membered golf as fun, as a game,"
emphasizes Mrs. Violet Hanley,
internationally known golfer and
instructor in the women's physi-
cal education department.
"When I came to the University
I wanted to find championship
material, and now I've ended up
by giving satisfaction to so many
people," she remarks, summing up
her 25 year teaching career.
Hale and hearty, she believes
that "age is a matter of activity
Mrs. Hanley retired from a 15
year participation in major com-
petition after winning her fourth
state women's golf championship
tournament in 1934.
With a smile of recollection she
says that she discovered golf at
the age of ten. From then her
golf was nourished with much
practice and the understanding
and encouragement of her hus-
gand, Stewart Hanley.
Between 1921 and 1934 she
qualified for ten United States'
national tournaments. In 1930 she
was chosen to manage and play on
the American team against a se-
lect group of British golfers.
As a member of this team of
best amateur women golfers in
America, she performed in Scot-
land and France, as well as Eng-
Easily recognized by her famil-
iar blue beret, her students can
spot her instantly on Palmer
Coeds in her classes have pro-
fited from her extensive know-
ledge and skill of the sport. As
one student says, "She really
knows her golf and transmits her
enthusiasm for the game to you.
At the request of Dr. Margaret
Bell, supervisor of the women's
physical education department,
she came to the University in 1929
to organize women's golf. The 461
coeds receiving golf instruction to-
day are a "big jump from the 200
coeds of earlier years, a definite
sign .of increased interest in the
sport," she says.
"I'm not strictly a physical edu-
Facilities of Assembly
Plans for a new permanent
committee of the Assembly Dormi-
tory Council were revealed Mon-
day at Assembly's last meeting.
A secretariat committee will be
initiated next fall, according to
Betsy Alexander, '58, Assembly
The secretariat will have a two-
fold purpose, "first, to integrate
freshmen and transfer students
into Assembly activities and sec-
ondly to assist Assembly in it's
organization,' Miss Alexander
Bobbi Banks, "58, chairman of
the planning committee an-
nounced that the secretariat will
be broken down into three sec-
tions: research, publicity and of-
Preceding the announcement of
these plans, Christine Wells, '59,
was introduced as the new Assem-
bly secretary. She was selected by
the executive council upon the
resignation of Monteen Johnson,
It was also decided by a vote of
the ADC members to postpone ap-
propriating scholarship funds for
girls on campus until sufficient
funds had been laid aside to as-
sure the education of the Hungar-
ian student whom Assembly is
cation instructor, she explains.
She received her B.A. and M.A.
degrees in anthropology.
Following her interest in this
field, she is an expert in ancient
Far Eastern ceramics.
In Stockholm in 1955, giving
golf clinics she discovered that
the Crown Prince of Sweden is
also an avid admirer of the ,art.
During her stay there she parti-
cularly enjoyed the ceramic ex-
hibit which he had arranged.
The Stockholm golf clinics were
a most interesting experience for
her. When they asked her to give
them she said, "I really didn't
t1ave the time but they were very
Of her teaching at the Univer-
sity, Mrs. Hanley says, "It has
been lots of fun."
But she does not plan to con-
tinue teaching after the summer
school physical education pro-
gram. Although her plans of the
future are indefinite, golf and
ceramics are certain to remain

tion has completed its spring

offs have given the W.A.A. new
