SRA To Hold Discussions For Freshmen


Offered Complete Sports

Program During Summer Months

A full program of athletics will
be offered Michigan coeds this sum-
mer, according to Dr. Margaret Bell
who is in charge of the Physical Ed-
ucation Program for the women.
Dr. Bell explains that this year's
sports program has a dual purpose:
1. Improve the health and body
of the coeds, and 2. provide for a
source of recreation.
"The best way that I know for a
girl to preserve her figure," Dr. Bell
said, "is to partake regularly of some
kind of athletics. Sports also give a
woman grace and poise in addition
to providing a healthful source of re-
There will be a "get acquainted
picnic and program" this Friday
afternoon at Palmer Field. A nom-
inal fee will be charged for the pic-
nic supper, after which the coach-
ing staff will present a program
which will give the women an idea
of the scope of the program.
No Lateness Fee
Dr. Bell emphasized that there is
no fee for late registration. She
urges that every woman take the
opportunity and enroll in at least one
of the many sports offered in the
There will be instruction in each
department by such competent wo-
men as Mrs. Stewart Hanley, who

for several years has been one of the
country's outstanding women golfers.
Mrs. Hanley was the manager of the
American Women's Golf Team, which
for several years traveled in Eng-
land. She also has been State
champion several times. Under Dr.
Bell, who will endeavor to give in-
dividual instruction wherever pos-
sible, will be Prof. Marie Campbell,
Miss Mary Hartwig, Miss Ruth
Bloomer and Miss Betty Bandlow.,
Practice Makes Perfect
Ample opportunity will be given
for practice so that everyone will at-
tain as much skill as possible. Such
sports as golf, tennis, badminton,
riding, archery, swimming and many
others will be featured. Most forms
of modern dancing will be taught.
Women may find out the exact hours
that classes in the various sports are
held by consultingthe secretary in
the Barbour Gymnasium. Most of
the sports are divided into sections
so that there will be classes for be-
ginners as well as those who may be
more proficient.
There will be plenty of.equipment
on hand for everybody to use or rent.
There are several good sets of golf
clubs and excellent tennis rackets
that may be rented at a nominal fee.
Good equipment is an important fac-
tor in aiding one to attain skill in
almost every sport.
The classes will be given in Bar-
bour Gym, the WAB, and Palmer
Mield. The program is entirely vol-
untary, and although no credit is
given, Dr. Bell urges every coed to
enroll in her favorite athletic sport.
Competition To Be Featured
There will be individual competi-
tion in such sports as golf and ten-
nis and team competition in softball
and swimming. The manner in which
teams will be chosen will be an-
nounced later. Entries for individual
competition will be accepted in the
near future.
Girls enrolled in the Physical Edu-
cation will be permitted to bring
dates to the WAB in the evenings
for participation in such sports as
tennis or archery or deck tennis or
bowling. The WAB will remain open
from noon until 9:30 p.m. on week
nights and until 11:30 p.m. on Fri-
day and Saturday, in order to make
facilities available to more of the
Dr. Bell and her associates are
planning on a big summer for wo-
women's athletics. They expect a
large turnout for the picnic this Fri-
day, where all those interested will

Center of nearly all women's ac-
tivities for the summer term and
session, the Michigan League will act
as hostess throughout the summer
months at a series of week-end
dances, the first of which will be
held Friday from 9'p.m. to midnight.
The dances will be informal, oc-
curring in the League Ballroom each
Friday and Saturday night of the
fifteen-weekterm, and willfeature

orchestra. Hardy's eleven-piece or-
chestra played aththe League on
week-ends during the spring semes-
ter this year. Admission will be lower
during the summer term than the
amount charged during the regular
The outstanding difference be-
tween these dances and the winter
week-end functions, according to the
Social Director's office of the League,
will be that men and women may be
present not only in prearranged cou-
ples but are invited to attend singly
and make new acquaintances under
the auspices of the League. A dual
stag-"hag"-line will be the order of
the evenings. The dances will thus
combine some characteristics of the
winter week-end dances where a date
was the rule and also the coke bars,
where hunting was always open sea-
The plans around which the dances
will be arranged have been success-
fully tested during several past sum-
mer~ sessions.
Square Dancing

One of the most popular of the
summer activities sponsored by the
Michigan League will be renewed

teaching the classes at Dearborn

free lessons.
Regular classes will be held every
Monday night throughout the sum-
ner session and Mr..Lovett will also
be available at 4:30 p.m. on Mondays
for those desiring special instruction.
Square dancing classes last sum-
mer were so well attended that en-
thusiasts had to be turned away from
the crowded League Ballroom.
