THE MICHIGAN DAILY MONDAY,JUNE27, 19
THE SPORTING LADY'
By THREE BLIND
MICE . , ..
As the hot rays of Old Sol beating down make studying increasingly
difficult and soft zephyrs waft in through class windows to make the great
outdoors seem doubly inviting, the thought of recreational activities comes
to mind. ... The department of physical education for women, foreseeing
all this, has several activities all planned and recreational facili-
ties and equipment can be obtained in large doses by those'
Classes in archery, badminton, modern dance (both a
methods and an introduction class will be given), tap dancing
(two classes will also be given, one for women and one a mixed
class at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays), golf, swimming,
recreational swimming (this is a class where no instruction is
given but you just swim around for pleasure), tennis and rid-
ing ... . If there is a demand for additional classes, or the hours
at which the classes are schedtiled at present prove inconvenient,
new sections will be opened if the department finds it possible to do so and
if the demand is made evident within the first few days . . . . So the
sooner you get over to Barbour Gym and register the better a chance you
have of getting what you want when you want it . . . . And the best
thing about it all is the fact that you can rent equipment for the nominal
sum of 25 cents for the summer in each sport except riding . . . And
ihat's the only cost of the sport for the whole six weeks it's given . .
"Line forms at the .right". . .
If you want to be really efficient and get in your classes as soon as
possible, here's the procedure . Registration takes place at Barbour
Gym, so it's necessary to go over there and get a paper (which they'll give
you), which names the activities, their section numbers, the days, hours
and the place at which they're given . ... Then, after you've found a section
that doesn't conflict with your classes or any other activities, make out a
card for it, and hand it in . . . . If -you wish to rent equipment, having
neglected to pack your golf clubs or tennis racquet at the
last minute, you can purchase an equipment ticket in Room
15 in Barbour Gym before attending class . . . . The
tickets, except in-the case of riding, where six lessons cost
$5, can be obtained for 25 cents each and will last' you
through the summer.
Next, you're required by the department to go to the f
Health Service for a medical check, which consists of a l
brief physical examination and a blood and urine count....
You can secure an appointment for the pedical check and
at the end you're told whether you're in fit condition to
participate in all kinds of activities or if not, what kinds might prove too
strenuous.... In this way, you're protected (as well as the physical educa-
tion department) from doing something that's too much for you. .
And if you have anything the matter with you, in most cases, you can have
it treated at the Health Service all the time you're enrolled here. . . . The
check is required before class participation will be allowed. . . And once
you've finished doing these t'ings, classes meet for work starting Wednes-
day, except in the case of three dancing sections which begin today.. .
In order to give you time for doing any cramming you may need to for
final exams, all activity classes close at the end of the sixth week, giving
you two full weeks to study. .
"Hours to cool off... .
For those who desire recreational swimming without any special
instruction, the Union swimming pool will be open to women from 11 a.m.
to noon Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and

ing the protracted heat wave of July.
"In case of excessive perspiration add
an extra amount of ordinary table.

children and old people are most
susceptible to extreme heat, and urged
persons over 40 and particularly those
suffering from diseases of the heart

The forty-fourth annual Summer
Session of the Law School got under
way last Monday with 18 faculty
members and 160 students participat-
ing. The session will continue until
August 31, with the regular classwork
divided into two periods of five weeeks
The Schedule of the Summer Ses-
sion is planned so as to make avail-
able in successive summers most of
the prescribed courses of the first
two years of the required work lead-
ing to a degree.
Instruction is given for the most
part by members of the faculty of
the School, but a few courses will
be given by men of recognized ability
from other law schools.
You can be cool and comfort-
able - yet perfectly groomed
during the hottest day! It's
easy with a Shadow Garment!
They're made of fine voile or
net or mesh - and they lare as
cool as a cucumber, yet as
strong as a far heavier bro-
cade or coutil.

special pad for abdominal con-
trol. The lace bust rounds the
bust into a youthful line.
Thursdays and from
8:30-9:30 p.m. Tuesdays. . .. If the demand justifies
it, the Intramural pool may be open for mixed swim-
ming during the week later on....'Also the department
has planned a mixed picnic swim for later in the sea-
son. . . . So you won't have to waste your time longing
for "ye olde swimming pool" as the thermometer
reaches new heights. . . . And tank suits can be
rented at the Union, if you've left your suit at home....
Dr. Margaret Bell, the director of physical edu-
cation for women and the head medical adviser for
women at the University Health Service, has a word
YOU'LL WANT a whole wardrobe of gala, inexpensive
cotton frocks to be happy in summer school!
WeV knoiw - for we've been filling the needs of
Michigan coeds for over fourteen years! So we're
ready with the freshest collection in many
a moon! Dirndls, shirtwaisters, two-piecers, peasant
styles! Linens, voiles, hopsacking, pique, sharkskin,
gingham, dotted swiss, shantung, lace, novelty
to say 'about renting equipment. . . . To quote her, "Contrary to custom,
this department, for a small rental of 25 cents a season, provides archery,
badminton, golf, swimming and tennis equipment. Naturally, this equip-
ment is limited, xd will be rented to the first applicants who present
themselves".. In other words, it's "first come, first served," if you want
to rent equipment, : the sooner you finish registering, the better your
chance of getting what you want. .. .
"The Who and Where".,...
Besides Dr. Bell, the staff of the department will include Dr. Mabel
Rugen, who is also with the division of Hygiene and Public Health as
well, Miss Dorothy Beise, Miss Marie Hartwig and two visiting instruc-
tors. . . . They are Miss Barbara Crowe, director of women's sports at the
University oY Vermont, who will teach archery and swimming, Miss Helen
Ellis, who will teach dance here after teaching it for three years at Purdue
and who has just finished a year of study with Henya
Holme in New York City, and Miss Helen McLane, a 1937
Michigan graduate, who will teach swimming here after
teaching for the year in Kalamazoo. .. .
If you don't want to go out for any organized activi-
ties, there are a lot of facilities open for you any time
you wish to use them. . . . First, there are 12 clay and
four cement tennis courts over at Palmer Field, an archery
range and a meticulously kept putting green, as well as a
driving field. . . . Besides this, there's the Women's Ath-
letic Building, right next to Palmer Field (they're both at the junction of
North University and Forest) where most of the equipment is kept.
It also has an archery range, bowling alleys and golf cages for those who
prefer indoor sports. . . . Oh yes, and there's a nice, cool veranda for
cooling yourself off after over-exerting on Palmer Field. . . . Besides these
sports, there are always canoeing, bicycling, roller skating and hiking for
those who prefer to stay a little off "the beaten track". . . . So it's your own
fault if you go away "out of condition" at the end of the summer..
