Crashing into the side of a huge
iceberg near Umanak, West Green-
land, the motorship "Disco," carry-
ing the northern party of the Uni-
versity Greenland Expedition, ran
up on the ice platform which al-
ways surrounds the visible part of
an iceberg, breaking several of the
upper plates of the ship and de-
stroying the anchor, according to
word received here by radiogram.
The party, under the direction of
William H. Carlson, assisted by Max
Demorest, was returning to the
United States by way of Copenhag-

SportsW oman
For the last time this season, the
women's physical education de-
partment will sponsor an open
hockey meet for all women register-
ed in the summer session.
Although it was originally plan-
ned to have but one of these games,
they proved so popular that they
have been repeated every week. The
department furnishes all of the
necessary equipment and any wom-
an desiring to play may do so by
appearing dressed for the game at
7:15 o'clock tomorrow night on Pal-
mer field.
After each meet, refreshments
are served in the lounge at the field
There is still room for a few more
of the women on campus to enroll
in the open swimming meet to be
held at 7:30 o'clock next Thursday
evening in the Union pool.
The program will include a 25
yard free style, side stroke for
form, racing back stroke for form,
sculling 25 yards, retrieving objects,
novelty races, and a water game.
Those entering must sign up in i
Barbour gymnasium at once.


"It is the mistaken idea of many
women that they can do more good
for the world by keeping their nos-
es to the grindstones and never
once thinking of their health and
physical well-being," stated Dr.
Margaret Bell, director of physical,
education for women, in discussing
the health of summer school stu-
dents recently.
"This is the reason that many of
the women who come to use are so
prematurely old," she continued.
"They don't seem to realize that
just a little time given to setting up
exercises every morning would ac-
complish much towards giving
them better health and more
strength for doing their work as
well as making them all look young-
"Of course, a great deal of out-
door exercis e is highly desirable
and extremely beneficial," Dr. Bell
went on. "But we realize that many
of these women have not the time
to devote to this and it is for them
particularly that we have prepared
a series of setting up exercises call-
ed "The Michigan Daily Dozen"
which will keep them in trim if
they will just devote a few minutes
to them each morning."
The members of the department
have just completed these exerciss
and will be glad to advise any sum-
More Than 250 Make
Trip to Put-in-Bay
Although the slight rainstorm
last Saturday on Lake Erie spoiled
part of the Pun-in-Bay excursion
for a few of the members, most of
the 251 people who took the trip
had a very enjoyable day.
This is more than twice the num-
ber of people who have attended
previous excursions to Put-in-Bay,
under the auspices of the geology
department, -according to Prof.
William H. Hobbs, who conducted
the trip.

tion for women.
"We are particularly anxious to
help those women who have been
enrolled in the various recreational
courses this summer because we
feel that the work which they are
doing now will be totally lost if
they drop it as soon as summer
school closes and forget their health
entirely until next summer," Dr.
Bell stated. "However, we do not
wish to exclude any other woman
