'T KEEPING TRIM "Pistol Packin' Mama" might well be dedicated to two of the twenty crack rifle shots of the Davis Rl'Fl.li CLUB, who, under the watchful eye of Mr. Caville. practice Vtlednesday afternoons at the Mount Vernon Revolver and Rifle Range. lior the fair sex. during this past year. have been ardent enthusiasts of the well' known "man's" sport. and there has been a lot of keen competition among the members. ln fact. one of the highlights of a December match between the Maroon organization and the Revolver and Rifle Club. was the expert shooting done by the two feminine members, linid Oppenheim took no odds from anyone, shooting 08. and Mary Anne Higgenbotham scored 95. But' the boys didn't take defeat sitting down. At a winning match with Roosevelt. Charles Kleinman held top honors with 99 hits out of a possible l0O. The boys and girls. displaying sporting teamwork throughout the year. chalked up a very successful season. lNDljN'I'llilCATlON--tTopj Row l: Cf. Kleinman. A. Miller. E. Johanson.

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. lNDENTIFICQATION-CMiddlea Row l: I..

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. INDFNTIFICATIONVACP1oltnniH Row l: l.
