< Grouped In Zones


To afford all women on campus an
opportunity to participate in both
team and individual sports is the
;purpose of the Women's Athletic As-
sociation. To this end it organizes
~clubs for skilled participants in in-
Adividual sports like riflery, and in
team sports like hockey, and it also
organizes games between women in
different residential zones.
SEmphasizing sport for the pure fun
of it, W.A.A. recently abolished all
awards for skill and participation in
sports except one, the W.A.A. scarf.
This scarf of yellow and blue is given
for two seasons of play in any sport.
W.A.A. clubs also promote competi-
tion between men and women, the
women's golf team playing the men's
golf team, and the women's hockey
' team playing the Lawyer's Club
Clubs organized by W.A.A. for
'skilled players are headed by an elect-
,ed manager who automatically be-
comes a member of the board of
W.A.A. Within each team sports club,
play is between club members, or as
previously mentioned, between the
club and a corresponding men's group.
?Two clubs of a different nature are
-the Dance Club and Crop and Saddle.
The former is for students of modern
dance and the latter is a riding club.
Both give exhibitions during the year.
SWomen living in sororities, dormi-
+tories or League houses are grouped
=into residential zones by W.A.A., with
approximately 60 women in each
zone. Tournaments are played off
within zones in sports like hockey
and basketball.
On Wednesday of Orientation
Week, W.A.A. usuaally sponsors a
sports exhibition afternoon at Palmer
Field. Exhibitions of hockey, tennis,
archer.y, golf, riding, and badminton
will be held this year and there will
also be a sports fashion show. Dr.
Margaret Bell, head of the Women's
Physical Education department, and
Mary Johnson, '38, president of
W.A.A. will speak over a public am-
plifying system to the group. For
Iurther explanation about W.A.A.
sports, managers of the various clubs
' will be situated at small tables around
the field to answer an questions.
The outstanding project of W.A.A.
at present is the raising of money for
i a women's swimming pool. With the
donation last year of $300 by the J-
Hop Committee, and $75 by the Frosh
o Frolic Committee, the fund was ma-
aerially advanced. W.A.A. itself has
already made $1,000 toward the proj-
