Swimming classes for women students in the Michigan Union pool,
(shown above) held throughout the regular school year, will be continued
during the Summer Session for all ,students interested, under the
direction of Miss Catherine Winslow of Beloit College.

Swimming Classes
Given In Union Pool
Swimming and tennis for women
will be taught for Summer Session
students by Miss Catherine Winslow,
who is director of physical education
for women at Beloit College.
Swimming classes will be held at
the Union pool Tuesday and Thurs-
day at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m., and on
Monday and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
There is no charge for instruction
but a 25-cent fee will be charged for
the use of the pool.
Miss Winslow, who has taught
swimming and tennis at the Univer-
sity of Oregon, Stanford University,
University of Wisconsin, and formerly
at Michigan, says the aim of the
classes is purely recreational, with
emphasis on form and the develop-
ment of strokes. Women students
may enroll in the classes by regis-
tering at Barbour Gymnasium.

open the celebration of its first 100

Following Edwin Jurist's role as
President Ruthven, a huge birthday
cake with 100 candles was brought in
to the fanfare of trumpets, and Jur-
ist, as the terms of the presidents
were called off, snuffed out a candle
for each year.
In the speaking program which fol-
lowed, George Burke, University at-,
torney, in a speech on "100 Years of
Town and Gown," paid tribute to the
co-eds saying, "Never during the pe-
riod since 1870 have the co-eds torn
up the plank sidewalks and wooden
railings, or precipitated a "Dutch
War"; they never rushed the post of-
fice; they never attempted to disband
the local police force or disrupt the
State Militia; there is no proof that
they ever participated in the 'remod-
eling' of a local theatre. In fact, they
had no part in these and many other
'boyish' pranks that from time to
time have strained somewhat the cor-
dial relations existing between the
town and University."
