WAA Offers Variety of Facilities
By LINDA BRODEY-

for Women

For all incoming freshmen coeds
and transfer students who lack a
physical. education credit on their
transcript, the University makes
one year of physical education
training a requirement for gradu-
ating.
The program for women is di-
vided into four eight-week ses-
sions. For each eight-week period,
coeds select a different activity in
which they have already enrolled.
Women who want to learn div-
ing may receive instruction in
the Women's Pool. Those who
know the basic techniques of this
sport may take advanced courses.
Synchronized Swimming
Michifish and its junior coun-
terpart, Michifins, are two extra-
curricular clubs in which advanced
swimmers and divers participate.
Tryouts are held each spring and
fall, The groups feature synchro-
nized swimming and put on a
water ballet in the Women's Pool
which is equipped with under-
water lighting and facilities for
just such a program.
Coeds may also obtain their Red
'Cross Water Safety certificate
through their swimming courses.
This certificate is helpful in ob-
taining a summer position as a
camp counselor.
A putting green and two golf
courses are available to students
whether they are advanced or be-
ginning golfers. Coeds who are
taking other physical education
courses can use the golf courses
also.
Bowling Facilities
Four bowling alleys in the Wom-
en's Athlptic Building (WAB) give
women an opportunity to become
familiar with the sport. Scoring
and techniques of bowling are
taught.
Fencing instruction is also pro-
vided in the WAB. After the first
few weeks, of the course matches
are arranged between students in
each class. All equipment is fur-
nished for .the coeds. Instruction
on the trampoline, horses and
rings as well as tumbling and some
marching are included in the
apparatus course.
During the winter ice and figure
skating instr'uction is given at the
University Coliseum. Coeds are re-
quired to furnish their own skates
but they are not asked to purchase
a pair before the first class if they
don't already have their own.
Leadership Course
Recreational leadership is an-
other class open1 to University
coeds. This course is designed to
teach the fundamentals as well as
to give the students experience in
the recreational field. The course
provides experience required for
summer jobs.
Students learn essentials of the
handicraft, camperaft, hobbies,
games, music, nature study, story
telling, and first aid. Coeds do
field work with Scouts, Brownies,
