The lightweights won 6 and lost 2.
The football teams had good material and a high degree of team work this year. Four games were won and
two lost. The success of the season far exceeded the expectations of the team members. Iay Palmer deserves a vote
of thanks for his splendid efforts.
Much enthusiasm was created by our boxing tournament. Fans filled the gym to enjoy this sport. The year has
been a busy one and the boys enjoyed their varied program with Coach Myers. '
This was the third year that "Doc" Miller has been elected captain of the tumbling squad, an honor well de-
served by him. The team put on several splendid programs of pyramid building and tumbling.

GIRLS' ATHLETICS A
The Abbott girls of 1934-35 under the guidance of Miss Mary Geister have had a full year of activities in the
Physical Education Department.
To start the year right a group of girls went out to Maroon Field to play hockey. Although no formal games
were played, they had a great deal of fun.
Volleyball was enjoyed by all. Hazel Lind and Ethel Davis captained some snappy games.
Basketball was a great sport which was greeted with much enthusiasm. The able captains, Colette Beal, Ger-
aldine Voltz, and Betty Brown, had teams which were always ready to try their skill at winning. .
The girls and their captain, Hazel Lind, organized a tumbling team which showed cleverness and talent.
Baseball and horseshoe tournaments proved to be very exciting and- interesting for everybody.
One of the most popular events of the year was a course of six ballroom dancing classes which were attended
by one hundred students. They were sponsored by the Girls' Athletic Department which is under the direction
of Miss Geister.

ness man. Monica Hickey, an office girl, had to put up with the grumbling of Albert Wenzel, a lazy, care-free

ployers while Carl Bohne impersonated a nervous business man. Alice Nielsen filled the roll of a business woman
