To Aim at 100% Participation

Attention sports lovers and out-
door enthusiasts! The Outing Club
of the Women's Athletic Associa-
tion will provide an "around the
calendar"'program this year for
all red blooded Michigan coeds
who want to join.
Everyone interested in outing,
especially in hiking and camping,
will have the chnace to meet for
organization. Organizational plans
will be made by club members.
A swim in the Union Pool will
be the next step in the club's
activities. This will test the
swimming prowess of members in
preparation for the canoe trip,
which will highlight the October
schedule. Outdoor cookery will also
be fun.
NOVEMBER will possibly bring
coed swims and a regular barn
dance with all the trimmings. Ice
skating and ski trips are on the
December agenda along with "in-
door" outings such as bowling
parties and song fests.
During the spring months, a
big camping week-end at the
Fresh Air Camp will be forth-
coming and the ever popular
hikes, by foot and bike will be

held for the outdoor fans. Break-
fast hikes to give your eight
o'clock a good start, will take a
major part in the outing sched-
No dues will be charged, but
small feets for individual activi-
ties will be decided by members,
who will also plan the activities
and events throughout the year.
Membership is open to all women
on campus, first semester fresh-
men included.
Further information about the
club and the exact time of the
meetings may be obtained in the
"League Lowdown."
Outing Variety
The Outing Club is the only club
sponsored by WAA which does
something completely different at
each meeting.
Their activities for the year will
include sailing, canoe trips, horse-
back riding, skiing and a variety
of other outdoor sports.
New members with or without
experience in general sports will
be accepted at the club's first
meeting Sunday, Oct. 2.

The WAA will strive again this
year for 100 per cent participation
in sports by all women on cam-
When a woman joins a house
team, goes out for an individual
sport or joins a sports club her
participation is recorded for her
house. Points are given for team
membership, club membership
and campus tournament partici-
pation. Additional points are
awarded for winning tournaments,
team or individual, and all of these
points go on the house record.
To have 100 per cent partici-
pation a house must have each
woman who is a member of the
group participate in two sports

during the school year. It is pos-
sible to take part in more than
two sports and thus accumulate
additional points and have more
than 100 per cent participation.
During orientation freshman
and transfers will be introduced
to the WAA and will be able to
talk to the club managers about
their plans in the athletic line.
Carrying on with a pian organ-
ized last term, women basketball
players in the Basket Ball Club
will be divided into two time ses-
sions on the basis of skill.

Both groups will meet at sep-
arate times and have hours divid-
ed between techniques and com-
position. The club is open to
both intermediate and beginner
men and women.
All dance groups are combined
at some time during the school
session to give a joint program
featuring all the dance clubs on
campus demonstrating techniques
in their special fields.

tivities. Another traditional event
is Assembly Recognition Night,
which honors outstanding inde-
pendent women, Talks and awards
are given and dessert is served.
In the early spring the annual
coed-bid Assembly Ball will be
presented. Petitioning for the
central committee will be held
at the end of the fall term.
With Panhellenic, Assembly col-
laborate on the first Frosh Week-
end held in the spring semester.
