On any given Monday afternoon. one can hear the
metallic ring of fencing foils echoing through the halls
of Davis. On closer surveyance, it can be noted that
the exponents of the "Sport of Gentlemen" under the
very able sponsorship of Mr. Lindsey are gathered to
improve their prowess. Because of the war. which has
been directly responsible for a shortage of foils. the
attempts of the members of the FENCING Cl.UB to
become skilled in the art of fencing have been somewhat
hampered. However. with the few available foils and
some homemade wooden substitutes. these enthusiasts are
carrying on. Although the club does not engage in
competition with outsiders. the more advanced members
contend in bitterly contested matches. which serve as
teacher and entertainer for the other :lub members.

Automobile ioy-rides are out for the duration. but
there are no wartime regulations regarding horseback
riding. This popular sport thrives among Davis enthusi-
asts. Under Miss Blackburn's supervision. the girls in
the RIDING CLUB exercise their skill at the Hutchinson
Farms. There the girls receive pointers on riding. are
taught correct behavior in case of emergencies. as well
as preventive techniques. They cultivate a love for
animals, at the same time spending enjoyable afternoons
riding. Their special activities include a breakfast ride
and a moonlight ride during the spring semester.
With June Foster as President. the girls spent many
leisure hours this past year improving their horsemanship
and cultivating a compensating recreation.
