WAA Promotes

Two Social Eventsl



Judiciary Committee Acts

Club Helps.To Gain Funds
For Swimming Pool
With Carnival Projects
Lantern Night Also
Is Held By Group
The program of the Women's Ath-
letic Association, besides covering a
wide range on the sports calendar,
promotes two of the main social
events of the academic year.
To foster growth of the ever-in-
creasing swimming pool fund, the
club sponsors, in the spring of the
year, a great, campus-wide project.
Until five years ago a Penny Carnival'
was held in Barbour Gymnasium.
This was replaced by a huge carnival
-the Michigras-and a swing con-
cert, which featured such names as
Jan Savitt in the role of swing mas-
Something different was inaugura-
ted this year, with the sponsoring .of
the Michilodeon, profits from which
went directly into the swimming pool
project. For this "event Waterman
and Barbour gymnasiums were trans-
formed into a gay carnival, with fra-
ternities, sororities and dormitories
offering their services erecting and
managing a variety of booths for the
amusement of the students.
Hold Lantern Night
The other great event sponsored by
the Women's Athletic Association is
the Lantern Night held each year in
the last few days of May. This is the
traditional ceremony honoring the
senior women. Seniors, wearing caps
and gowns and carrying lighted lan-
terns, are led by the band and es-
corted by underclassmen in their
march from the Library to Palmer
Last spring Adelia Cheever House
won the all-campus women's sing
which annually follows the march.
The all-participation cup which is
presented to the organization having
the greatest number of participations
at the end of the year was awarded
to Gamma Phi Beta.
Preparation for participation in
sports begins each year when the
house or sports managers turn in
team lists to the Health Service for
medical approval. Participants in the
Women's Athletic Association and in-
terhtiuse tournaments are expected to
understand that the function of the
medical examination is solely to pro-
tect the student.
In this interhouse competition the

WAA Leader


student usually plays with her resi-
dence unit-dormitory, League house
or sorority house.

ing the past year were as follows:
archery, Nancy Bercaw and Eleanor
L. Gray; badmington, Rose Gengrad-
oming, Helen Searson and Marion

The recreational program of the

WAA is carried on largely through
the clubs within the general organi-
zation. These clubs are advised by
faculty members, according to their
interests, upon the recommendation
of the WAA president. It has been
the custom for the majority of the
clubs to sponsor open tournaments
for all-campus participation. In ad-
dition, a limited number of extra-
mural matches are arranged with
outside groups. The following clubs
are active under WAA: Archery, Bad-
mington, Basketball, Crop and Sad-
dle, Dance, Fencing, Hockey, Out-
door, Pitch and Putt, Rifle, Swim-
ming and Tennis.
The program of competition plan-
ned by these groups is carried on
thruogh the cooperation of 34 house
athletic managers who represent sor-
crity, dormitory and League house
units. Meetings of the house mana-
gers are held at the beginning of the
four seasons-Oct. 1, Nov. 24, Feb. 16
and April 20.
