Recreational Facilities Awaiting Students

A __1 m if m I




Seriously though, now more than
ever before students and others re-
maining in Ann Arbor for the sum-
mer should be interested in discover-
ing the. recreational facilities that
are available for theeir benefit. Since
students attending the 8-week or 16-
week sessions will have little or no
vacation time this year it is impbr-
tant in the interests of their health
and pleasu e that they take full ad-
vantage of the opportunities offered
them by the organizations created
;or this purpose.
Prominent Spots
Prominent among these organiza-
tions on campus are the Intramural
Building and the Union for men stu-
dents, and the Women's Athletic
Building And the League for women.
To supplement this formidable group
are numerous privately run golf
courses, boat liveries, catering houses
and the like that all do their part in
equipping pleasure seeking Ann Ar-
Particular enjoyment is to be had
in outdoor dates in the opinion of
campus physical education authori-
ties and, equally important, in the
opinion of those who have tried them,
Hiking Facilities
Since the facilities tor hiking, boat-
ing, picnicking and all other sorts of
athletics, are so abundant, there is
no reason why students of the sum-
mer session should not get a full
share of fun and health even while'
attending school.
To better acquaint you with the
recreational opportunities at your
command, The Daily is publishing
this directory of places and groups
anxiou's to serve you.
