Outdoor Education Club
This fall the Outdoor Educa-
tion Club sponsored by the Wom-
en's Athletic Association is offer-
ing two short courses in archery
and riflery.
With the trend toward more
leisurely living, people are turn-
ng to the great outdoors for rec-
reationi. Some of these recreational
areas particularly in the field of
hunting can be quite dangerous
without the proper education so
this WAA club has decided to offer
"six easy lessons" on the handling
and use of the rifle and bow and
arrow.
The club, under the chairman-
ship of Diana Chapman, will hold,
its organizational meeting at 7:30r
p.m. Tuesday at the Women's Ath-
letic Building. As the semester
progresses, other outdoor activities
the members, wish to study will
be included in the program.
Tentative plans, for second se-
mester include the study of skiing
and fly and bait casting.

Homecoming Weekend Has
Sixteth Year Anniversary
"Mythigan" will mark the sixtieth year of the annual Homecoming
celebration.
Records indicate that Homecoming first began as far back as 1897
when the alumni came back to the campus to play the varsity football
team. However, beyond this fact, the why and wherefore of the event
is still a mystery.
Alumni Association officials have expressed the belief that IFOC
had something to do with its beginning. As an old issue of The Daily
.concurred, the IFC-formally established Homecoming Day in 1933.
However, the IFC office believes that Homecoming -may have
grown out of Founders Day, a day when old graduate affiliates came
back to campus en masse to honor the founders of their fraternities.
The origin of the traditional homecoming displays at the Univer-
sity is so ancient that no one knows exactly when they began. There
is no stable evidence of any house decorations when the first Home-
coming game was played.
Trophies for Homecoming displays were first awarded in 1932
when silver cups were donated by local merchants.
Theta Xi copped the prize that year with a display that featured
a grandstand of Michigan fans cheering as the Minnesota Gophers
were being trampled into the ground.
Women had no actual part in. the Homecoming contest utntil 1937
when IFC challenged the sororities to compete with them. Kappa
Alpha Theta won the prize for the sororities with a display showing
a man with a football for a head dancing on'the lawn.
Homecoming will be. held this year on the weekend of October 19.

Last spring members of the
Muslim Student Association were
presented a prayer rug by King
Saud of Saudi Arabia.
In answer ter a request from the
students, King Saud sent them aJ
Persian rug. Measuring 15 feet
square, the rug hs a green back-
ground with an oriental design in
blue, pink and tan.
This rug is used for congrega-
tional prayer °t 12:30 p.m. each
Friday. 'Between 20 and 30 Mus-
lims join in prayer to Allah, which
is the Arabic word for God. Iman,
the name of their prayer leader,
then' Idelivers a sermon.
The sermon is based on their
Holy Book, Koran, and the tradi-
tion of the' Prophet 'Mohammed.
Part of the sermon is spoken in
Arabic, while the remaining may
be spoken in any language.
Praying together on Friday are
Muslim students from Indonesia,
Pakistan, Turkey, Afganistan,
Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq,
Ethiopia, Libya and Canada.
The rug will also be used for
their three festivals-Mawlid, Ei-
delfitr, and Eideladha. Over 100
Muslims gather to celebrate In
prayer and speeches.
Subscribe to
The Michigan'
Daily

The first of these festivals, Maw-
lid, will celebrate the birth, of one
of the prophets, Mohammed. Be-
ginning in April Muslims will fast
for one lunar month. This fast is
called the Ramadan.
After a month °of fasting the
Muslims celebrate their second
festival, Eidelfitrn
Later in the year, Muslims from
all over the world make a pilgrim-
age to Mecca. This pilgrimage is
in commemoration yof the symbolic
sacrifice of i'smael rby the Prophet
Abraham.
