I . .. . . ......

Tennis . . . golf . . swimming . . . archery . . . horseback riding
bicycling . . . badminton . . . canoeing . and the ever popular
picnicking . . . did someone once whisper that going to school in the
summer time might be boring? Some few might find it so . . . but certainly
anyone who is wise enough to take ad-
vantage of the facilities for recreation of-
fered both in and about this fair metrop-
olis finds it just the opposite.
Just how good am I . . . some 35
women who entered the tournaments
. in either golf, tennis or badminton
. which the Department of Physical
Education for women is sponsoring .
are asking themselves that little question . . . and for a few the bulletin
boards in the Women's Athletic Building and in Barbour Gym reveal the
answer. As to the badminton tourneys . . . the first rounds of which
were completed yesterday . . . and the second round is to be finished
by next Wednesday . . . the winners are divided into two different groups
. . . those in the beginners' contest and those who are more adept
at handling the racquet . . . and incidentally, the bird . . . but in either
case the winner took two games out of three . . . at 11 points per game.
Mary Allshouse . . . a graduate student from the Quaker State . . . and
Mary Johnson . . . a Southerner . . . played one of the finest games
in the beginners' group . . . it was a fight to the finish with three sets
necessary to determine the winner . . . before the Pennsylvania sporting
lady finally proved her superiority. Aledia Beukey . . . a local girl enrolled
in the education school . . . defeated Elizabeth VandenBossche in the
same tournament. In the more advanced group Addie Marie Clark de-
feated Cecilia VandenBossche . . . and Louise Morse won from Elizabeth
McDowell . . . who hails from Bad Axe . . . in'the heart of the Thumb.
The fairway pounders . . . in other words, the would-be golfers . .
have until Saturday to turn in qualifying scores . . . for 18 holes on the
University's course . . . and then the contestants will
be matched against one another . . . to determine . .
eventually . . . the winner. Incidentally . . . a small
award will be made to the victor in each of the De- ..
partment's tournaments.
Ruth H~atfield . . . who is a Chicagoan . .. who-.
attends the University during the regular year . . . and , +
who entered both the city and the Women's Educa-
tional Department's tennis tournaments . . . won her * +
-match 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 . . . but she did not defeat her ."
opponent . . . Elsie Michalke of Saginaw . . . with- * , '
out some mighty clever volleying. . Ruth Steinke . . .
a Highland .Parker . . . and Eliz Patton . . . who -
comes from Detroit and who is also a regular session
student . . .'spend their spare moments playing tennis
S..and thus taking advantage of the fine courts at
Palmer Field.
Several sports minded . . . or shall one say, traffic minded .
individuals . . . have found that one can get places . . . so much farther
and so very much faster . . . on a bicycle than by assuming the role
of a mere pedestrian . . . and so . . . feeling that her education has been
neglected . . . Kay Brown . . . who is a whiz at both tennis and badminton
. . . proceeded to try to teach herself how to maintain her balance and
move her feet at the same time. Kay's
only trouble seemed to be her inability
' to get started . ah well, the spirit
was willing
Just to show what a little practice
can do . . . and to serve as a bit of
encouragement . . . to anyone who
may need it . . . it has been reported
that all of the beginners in the swim-
ming classes . . . which the Women's
Physical Education department con-
4lducts . . . now can not only grace-
fully yet safely propel themselves
through the water for a distance worth
mentioning . . . but are also learning to dive. Alice Quigley, Frances
Sullivan, Florence de Vries, and Dorothy Collins . . . as well as a great
many others . . . will verify the above . . . for they have learned that one
can do anything if one wants to . . . well, almost anything.
Mildred Compton . . . who comes from Traverse City . . . and who
is also one of the newly christened swimmers . . . is likewise very, very
able as far as hitting the bull's eye is concerned . . . she is considered to be
the most adept archer in her class. All the members of said class will be
arch rivals when a contest is held in the near future . . . Plans are not
yet definite but . . . and this is a secret . . . a feminine William Tell may
be discovered hiding under the proverbial basket.
Publication in the Bulletin is constructive notice to all members
of the University. Copy received at the office of the Summer Session
until 3:30; 11:00 a.m. on Saturday.
