and developing ideals of fair play Griffins, the Gargoyles won the competitive gymnastics. Tumbling too was included in the winter sports. Somer- saults over one, two, three, four, and five ( ?) people, merry- go-rounds, and headstands amazed us. We all have a very soft spot in our hearts for those on the bottom of the pyra- mids. Spring sports went too swiftly. We seemed hardly to have begun them when they were finished. The baseball teams looked like professionals with their hits into th e far field and their long slides home. Each team played hard for its side, encouraged by the enthusiasm of the two captains. With the invaluable aid of Lister and Gus Jr. respectively, the Gargoyle and Griffin leaders saw their teams safely to the end of the year and the final award of the Shield. Work- ing with them, the cheer-leaders gave us songs with vigor and vitality to help the teams along. The " A " Society is made up of girls who have worked long and steadily at sports and walks, and have reached the goal of two hundred and fifty points. Those who are privi- leged to wear the " A " have a real sense of achievement. Sports this year have taken on a new seriousness, and a new purpose. More than ever before we recognize the need for strong bodies well-equipped to answer to our bidding. Baseball G,p, Tumbling [ 20 ]

endurance and physical fitness Hockey was more exciting than ever this year. Orange practice balls flew through the air, demolishing sticks, shins and other obstacles, to the huge enjoyment of the P. A. boys on the stone wall. Even in a snow storm the Gargoyles were able to carry oft ' top honors on Field Day, but the Griffins made it very hard for them. The basketball team played Punchard High School and beat them by quite a wide margin. The Gargoyle team crashed through to a victory, much to the surprise and dismay of the unsuspecting Griffin basketball stars. Tennis lovers played until the snow came in the fall. Then, eager for new games, they were caught in the spring snow storms. Fall Field Day showed the Gargoyles on top in tennis singles, the Griffins taking the doubles, both matches. The first dance classes brought sore and aching muscles. Some hard-stretched members of the class could not laugh for several days. However, soon everyone became limber and ready for the dance routine at the end o f the winter sports period. Gym classes did drilling and exercises that the WACS or the YAYES could well admire. At the gym demonstration those who jumped, climbed, or balanced, no matter how proficient or confident, made the audience break into a cold perspiration each time they performed. Sadly enough for the Modern Dance Gymnastics [19]
