ADDED MUSCILES Although the teams were weather-bound for a number of weeks. the FIELD HOCKEY season finally got underway. After organization of teams. there was a weeks practice for the inter- class competition. Then forwards. half-backs, full-backs and goaltes. put the hockey sticks to good use. The forwards learned to dribble, the hall-backs to drive. and the goalies to stop the hall. Sophs, Juniors. and Seniors rallied their best efforts for each goal. The keenest game of the sesaon was fought between the Seniors and the Juniors. This game decided the hnal out- come. The Seniors. whose captain was Clem Tesoro. triumphed over the Juniors.

Among other things that the war has aliected is the GIRLS' A'l'Hl.li'I'lC COMJVIITTEE. In the past this group of girls would attend tonferences and plan "play-days" with other schools in the County. This has all been canceled for the dura- tion. The committee now determines who will receive letters for girls' sports. They request and recommend to the G. O. Coun- cil that the letters be given, and present them if their plea is accepted by the G. O. The Girls' Athletic Committee is a group of girls. picked by Miss XVight, who are outstanding girls' gym work: therefore. they are capable of administering all affairs connected with after-school athletics. They meet "on call" in Miss Wiglit's ofiice. I.ately the calling hasn't been often. but alter the war the athletic committee will be able function to capacity. in S0 to Il3lfN'l llflt A'I'IONffLThird Picture? N. l.iceiuie. K. Payne.

Now, raring to go. the girls practice individual skills, as the back- stroke. the breaststroke, and others. For competition practice the girls divide into teams and hold distance and relay races. The girls finish the period by swimming another ten laps. Joyce Muenzen. captain of the team. proudly announced that almost the whole team has passed the advanced swimmin test. S Ihe team not only can swim. but it can dive as well The racing dive is now second nature to the mermaids, and many can do more complicated ones. So it goes. every Tuesday. the girls practice because "practice makes perfect": they want to win on that fatal day in June when Davis High meets Vdhite Plains.
