It is the purpose of the School to give the student an understanding of his responsibilities under the Constitution of the United States in the con- duct of public office — domestic and foreign. This can be accomplished through a curriculum which correlates social economic, political, historical, business, and psy- chological studies. 34 CARROLL W, AUSTIN AM.

ENGINEERS’ COUNCIL According to the constitution of the Council, “The general purpose of the Council shall be to provide liaison between the student body of the school of Engi- neering of the George Washington University, in all matters affecting the general interests and welfare of the student body, the School of Engineering, or the University. " The constitution further states that the Council shall sponsor the Annual Engineers ' Ball, the Annual Engineers’ Banquet, joint society meetings, mixer meetings, and other cooperative affairs. As a general rule, no other type of organization is as indefinite in purpose and action as a “coordinating body 1 ’. However, the Ball, the Banquet, the more and more popular mixers, and a very broad interpretation of the word coordinating have made a useful and vital organizatio n of the Engineers’ Council The Council is made up of two representatives from each of the member organizations, and the Business Manager of the Mecheleeiv magazine. Officers of the Council are elected at the first meeting by vote of the newly elected representatives. At the present time there are six organizations which are members of the Council.

However this is but one of the requirements for mem- bership Those who have attained the necessary schol- arship must have demonstrated a willingness to partici- pate in the L Diversity functions, such as actively joining the engineering societies and attending university-spon- sored group activities. The prospective member must also exhibit the practical qualities that are necessary attributes to every successful engineer 50 First row: W. Galvin, A. V. As tin, W, Crump, Cl H, Tompkins, A.

MECHELECIV The Mecheleciv magazine is published at the George Washington University by the direction of the Engi- neers’ Council The staff of the magazine is composed of engineering students who compile, edit, and publish six editions per year. The purpose of the magazine is to present technical articles written by the undergraduate students, publicize and create interest in the engineering societies and fra- ternities, and to offer an opportunity for future engi- neers to acquire the skill of technical writing.

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS The George Washington University Student Branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is composed of students in the School of Engineering who are studying for the degree of Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, On the first Wednesday of each school month, the ASME has a combined social and technical meeting. Speakers from the Washington area and sometimes representatives from companies in the East are invited to give talks on various aspects of engineering. Movies are often included in the program Refreshments are usually served after the meetings, thus giving members a chance to get better acquainted with their fellow stu- dents and their professors. The Student Branch also arranges inspection trips to places of interest to the student engineer such as the Naval Gun Factory, the Naval Ordnance Laboratory, the Bureau of Standards and generation stations of the Potomac Electric Power Company These trips are free and are scheduled for the benefit of the student The complicated job of mechanical engineering can often be accomplished with the simplest of tools, as here demonstrated by Harry Kriemelmeyer 9 who is wielding a monkey wrench 53 First row : J, Hiighes (sec), W.

I he Branch was established in 1932 and ac tive mem hcrship is open to all students enrolled in electrical engineering Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of ever) month during the Fall and Winter semesters, Noted authorities on elect rical engineering and related subjects are the principal speakers at the meetings. The American Society of Civil Engineers was the first National Engineers Society to lie formed in the 1 oiled States and during the time following has done splendid work in promoting high standards of engineers. At the regular meetings, lectures are given by men of prominence, usually from various government agencies in the Washington area. Field trips give the members of the society an opportunity to see the application of the engineering theory of their text books. AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS Firs t row: E . E nhol m , J . L .

The wisdom of these men has become increasingly apparent by the continual growth of the fraternity until it is now the largest engineering fra- ternity in the country. The George Washington University Student Branch of the Institute of Radio Engineers is open to students in electrical engineering who are taking the communica- tions option, or to those who are primarily interested in electronics. The Branch was formed to bring together people interested in electronic and associated fields to supplement the course of instruction and to correlate the information presented in class. At the regular meeting lectures are given by men of prominence usually from the various government laboratories in the Washington area. Most of the speakers are experts in their field and prove to be extremely interesting. The George Washing- ton University Branch is most fortunate in having such a large group of specialists available to speak on an almost unlimited range of subjects, INSTITUTE OF RADIO ENGINEERS First row: R, Gardner, P, Schmid, W.

CASE CLUB The Van Vleck Case Club is an extra-curricular organization whose purpose is to give law students an opportunity to prepare written briefs and present oral argument on actual appellate cases. Four members are assigned to each case, two representing the appellant and two the appellee. The cases are argued before a simulated modern appellate court. Factors upon which the cases are decided are style and presentation of the arguments in the written briefs, clearness and manner of presentation of oral arguments, ability to respond to searching questions bv the court, and persuasiveness of the points of law presented, lhe competition consists of preliminaries, semi-finals and finals. The court for the finals consists of notable federal judges, including justices of the Supreme Court. Courtroom procedure is practiced by the Case Club. Well-known judges and lawyers often come in and lend their professional assistance . 65 Much exuding work goes into the publishing of the Law 1 Review , Accuracy is of prime importance , The editor and his assistants are shown giving the final check to some articles . GEORGE WASHINGTON LAW REVIEW The George Washington Law Review is a bi-monthly publication edited by the faculty and students of the Law School, The editorial staff of the publication con- sists of a faculty editor-in-chief, an associate faculty editor, a faculty board of advisory editors, a board of departmental advisory editors, and a board of student editors who are chosen each year on the basis of schol- arship. The publication is devoted exclusively to federal and state public law, and consists of articles on current legal problems by prominent authorities in the field of public law, as well as commentaries by students on recent decisions in the federal and state courts. The Law Review has become well-known throughout the law schools and the legal profession for its full and accurate coverage and evaluation of current trends in public law, and is frequently cited in connection with its presenta- tion of recent legal developments and interpretations.

AMICUS CURIAE Amicus Curiae, published by the Student Bar Asso- ciation, is a professional newspaper for the George Washington University Law School, and first appeared in the spring of 1952 The staff of the publication is composed exclusively of law students The purposes of the newspaper are to supplement the legal education of the law r students, and to furnish information concerning the activities of the Law School organizations. Amicus Curiae is published in cooperation with the faculty of the Law School, with individual faculty members con- tributing one or more articles to each issue, which are of timely and particular interest to the law student The George Washington Law Association sponsors one issue of the publication each academic school year, which is sent to all alumni of the Law School, number- ing more than six thousand. Amicus Curiae is pub- lished four times each semester and is made available to all law students Donn Cassity , editor oj Amicus Curiae , shows his edi- torial assistants how he wants the next edition to look , 67 NU BETA EPSILON Nu Beta Epsilon, a national law fraternity which is non-sectarian in nature was founded at the l Diversity of Maryland law school in 1918. and since that date has grown to a place of prominence among legal fraternities. Gamma Chapter was established at the George Washing- ton University in 1929. Although social functions of the organization include banquets, parties, dances and picnics, stress is placed on meetings of a professional nature in order to further the legal education of the members. The professional meetings are bilateral in nature in that programs featuring outstanding jurists, lawyers and authorities from the field of public adminis- tration are balanced with informal meetings with pro- fessors from the Law r School. Among the prominent members of Nu Beta Epsilon are the Honorable David Bazelon of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and Elder Statesman Bernard Baruch, recent recipient of the Humanitarian Award bestowed by the National Fraternity. First row: A. Kornhauser, K.

PHI ALPHA DELTA Phi Alpha Delta, a legal fraternity, was founded in Chicago in 1902 as a result of a legal controversy for its founders had banded together and successfully reduced the clerkship requirement for admission to the Illinois bar. Since that date, the fraternity has grown to nearly 100 chapters, with John Jay Chapter being established at the George Washington University in 1924. Annual social functions of the local chapter include dinner dances, picnics, monthly luncheons, and luncheons and professional meetings with the alumni chapter. Among the speakers presented at professional meetings were Judge Prettyman of the U. S. District Court of Appeals and Judge Myers of the Municipal Court of the District of Columbia. Among the members of Phi Alpha Delta to attain prominence in the fields of law and public service are Supreme Court Justices Clark, Douglas and Minton; Vice-President Nixon; President Truman, and Dean Robert G.

The purpose of the organization is to build a democ ratic fraternal union among a selected group of law students. At professional meetings, prominent attorneys speak on legal problems within their own particular fields of law, while social functions include a fall alumni dance, spring picnics, and a Founder ' s Day Banquet Phi Delta Delta is a women’s legal fraternity whose members are law school students chosen on the basis of scholarship and character. The purpose of the fra- ternity is to promote closer understanding between women in the Law School and those actively engaged in the legal profession. The George Washington Uni- versity chapter of Phi Delta Delta was founded in 1918, and is now complemented by chapters at American Uni- versity, Columbus. National University, and a local alumnae chapter.

" Is the chairman of the committee ready with his report?” ”1 am.” " Proceed. " - . " The enigma h which we were subtended was the unal- loyed, intrinsic Wnty that the academicians were dying with ennui over the syncopated cacophony being executed in the col- legians syndicate. We therefore proceeded to the sanctum sanc- torum of the grand vizier of the phrontistery, where we were ' apprized of the actuality that we would have to forge a head to H fte aedile of said syndicate, There we were advised that it was an intellectual pabulum concerning the diorism and perspicacity academicians.

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons the giant job of putting the paper together takes place. Late Sun- day evening harassed Hafcketeers put the final touches on the paper, and the following night finds the editors reading copy and checking proofs and galleys to achieve that final precise organization for which the Hatchet is noted. Coverage of the activities of a large University is a prodigious assignment, even when handled by a large stall. Week after week, however, the Hatchet comes through with accurate, detailed coverage of both Uni- versity events and campus chatter.

Editors hopefully organized stalls and started making assignments while keeping an anxious eye on the President ' s office for official word that the University could have an annual this ear. Mortar Boards trudged the streets all summer getting ads to finance the book, while the circulation staff pushed advance sales, warning the students that unless six hundred books were sold by December 1st. there would be no yearbook. And then, suddenly the go-ahead was flashed and production moved into high gear. The office became a behive of activity. Typewriters clacked, cameras clicked, and editors tempers grew short. Day after day the typewriters pounded; the copy was written; the pictures were captioned. Then the final feverish davs of activity, and suddenly all was quiet. The office was deserted.

Students were given the opportunity to learn any type of social dance they wished in several teaching sessions. Claudia Chapline and Steve Luke served as Student Directors of Social Dance. The Folk and Square Dances in Building J proved as colorful and as exciting as ever. The Modern Dance Concert, the Group’s big event of the year, presented a well balanced repertory : “Carou- sel,” “The American Girl,” “Salem Witchcraft ” “Mili- tary Balk” and “Studio Piece.” For the first time the Concert played a three night run in Lisner Auditorium. Square dancers derive pleasure from coming back week In April a dance concert for children was given at a j ter week and going through their paces . the special invitation of The Children’s Theatre of Washington, The Groups also participated in the musical comedy given in Lisner in April.

Then, for the first time this year, there was created the i niversity Dramatic Activities with Mr. William Callahan as Managing Director. The first thing lie did. in order to stimulate interest in dra- matic activities, was to establish it on a community- imiversih basis, with 60 of the actors and technicians coming from the student body and 40C from the c Om- ni unity. The first production, given in December, was Thorn- ton Wilder’s comedy, “The Merchant of Yonkers, ' Then in February came Joseph Matthews ' melodrama, “The Scapegoat, based on Franz Kafka s novel. “The Trial. Mr. Callahan ' s faith in the t Diversity ' s desire for dramatic activities has apparently been well justified. His work lias met with tremendous success.

HOMECOMING COMMITTEE The work of the Homeco ming Committee began in June, when the Student Council appointed Nell Weaver and Bob Buzzell as co-chairmen. The first job was to appoint a competent committee. Then arrangements were made with the National Guard Armory for the dance, and with Jack Morton for the orchestra. All during the summer the committee mimeographed and sent out let- ters concerning the queen candidates and the Mummer’s Parade. Tickets were printed and made ready for distri- bution. With the Fall came increased activity and the pressure of the approaching week-end. The committee met once or more every w r eek to coordinate activities and to make sure that no aspect of the job was being neglected. Soon the efforts of the entire committee were directed at publicizing the Homecoming events. Finally, the big week-end . . . and the months of careful planning bore fruit as GW had one of its most successful Home- coming week-ends.

The Booster Board accomplishes this by organizing pep rallies, parades, cavalcades to the schools where we play “away” games, and half-time entertainment. This year GW students were entertained between the halves of football games by such things as a Mummer’s Parade at the Homecoming game, the Air Force crack drill team, and a pint-sized kids 1 football game. The Board sold Booster books at the beginning of the school year which entitled the holders to two seats in the Booster section at every game. These seats made up the core of the cheering section, with shakers and balloons distributed to the people in the Booster seats. At the end of the year. Boosters awarded cups to the fraternity and sorority which had done the most to promote school spirit. Phyl Allen and Kathy MacDonald kelp publicize the Pep Rally in jront of the Student Activities Office on the day oj the big game. 120 A happy group oj Colonials, pari of the cavalcade to I irginia. get off the bus in anticipation of the big game.

SAILING ASSOCIATION The purpose of the Sailing Association is to promote better seamanship, greater appreciation for sailing as a recreation and a sport, and to engage in intercollegiate competition. The club is a member of the Potomac River Sailing Association and the Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Asso- ciation. Besides sailing here on the Potomac every week-end. members often take trips to other colleges to enter into competition. In their meetings they have lee tures and films on the fine points of sailing. The club also has its social side. Many parties dot the social calendar of the sailing club members. Highlight of the year is the annual Frostbite Regatta with Maryland and Georgetown, followed by the Frostbite Ball. Compe- tition is keen for the cup awarded to the winner of the regatta.

With Andy Davis and Coach “Bo” Rowland, GW’s headline-makers of recent years, gone, no one knew quite what to expect. Rowland’s right hand man, former line coach L Ro Sherman, was elevated to the post of head coach, despite rumors that an outsider would be brought in As such, he instituted ( 1 ) a new formation, the “split T (2 ) a new coaching staff to make it work, and (3) a new spirit in the asphalt cam- pus eleven. In the first game the traveling team turned in an over- whelming 39-0 rout of North Carolina State at Raleigh. North Carolina. Returning home, the G-Streeters had a close shave but finally edged Washington and Lee with a last quarter rally. In the third week, however, the Buff stepped into the big leagues and took their come uppance from the University of Virginia, who seemed to do everything right. After this the team settled back to play consistently exciting, but not spectacular football. Coaches Bo Sherman ami Howard Rowers leave the field after the sensational 39-0 rout of North Carolina Stale . with few surprises. The accent shifted from the razzle- dazzle, racehorse offense of the freshmen to the strong, tough ? experienced seniors’ defensive team that showed the results of Sherman’s patient coaching over the years. Offensively, the lack of a dependable T-quarter- back proved to be a serious limitation, but Sherman always seemed to have one more in his hat, Perh aps the outstanding performance of the season was a convincing rout of the strong Bucknell eleven, 21 7. This team was the biggest I by weight) beef trust in the Last, and the win w f as a real credit to Coach Sherman and especially to our defensive line. The outlook for next year is favorable, since most of the green offensive backs will return. They will no doubt miss the stout defenders who set up so many scores, but more may be on the way . The abandonment of platoon football by the NCAA may lie an obstacle to a team that was just learning the system. The season’s record of six wins against two losses and a tie at least indicates that George Washington is beginning to grow a team out from under the shadow of Andy Davis. 77 c boys on the bench look concerned: Barriera Freas 7 Boland , Fox, Daly , CaskelL Logan, and Caspar! watch the action at V.PJ.

On a punt return, Norb “Dutch Danz tears through the sundered W L line behind excellent blocking by Semkew, Daly , and Gaspari. George Washington 39 North Carolina State 0 In the season ' s opener for both teams, the revitalized Colonials poured it on a hapless Wolf pack squad. The scoring parade was led by freshman back Lenny Ciem- niecki. who scored twice, and senior halfback Bino Barrier a. The big GW line completely bottled up the State offense, including highly touted scatback Webster, The defenders recovered three fumbles and blocked a punt to set up the scoring punch. Ray Fox, playing in his first game as a T-quarterbaek, turned in a surpris- ingly good performance with professional passing and ball handling. Fox ' s favorite target was speedy end Richie GaskelL George W ashington 33 Washington Lee 28 This time it took a second half comeback to put the local boys out in front The General ' s fiashy quarter- back, Randy Broyles, put them on the long end of a 14-7 halftime score, and it looked as though the Colo- nials were a one-game sensation. After spotting the visitors one more TD in the third period, Ray Fox took command and engineered a thrilling comeback. Three quick scores came on an eighty- yard pass to Cask ell, a pitchout to Bari i era. and a blocked punt recovered in the end zone by George Semkew. Washington Lee made a final score as the clock ran out. but only after the game was in the local pocket. Again starring were the defen- sive giants Flyzik, England, Semkew, and company. George Washington 0 Virginia 50 The howl -hoping Cavaliers took GW to the cleaners with their worst defeat in four years. The split-T offense, so effective in the early games, met its masters in Art Guepe and his hard-charging backs; the Colonials netted only 63 yards all afternoon against 327 for Vir- ginia. Sherman, in desperation, threw four quarterbacks into the fray, but none of them could stem the tide. Out of 17 passes thrown by the quartet, only six were com- pleted. and four intercepted, it was indeed a gloomy day for the New Colonials, and sports writers consigned them to their accustomed doormat role in the Southern Conference, George Washington 6 Virginia Polytechnic 0 A much improved Virginia Tech team gave the Colo- nials a real fight in a game played at Blacksburg, It was a battle of two stout defensive lines all the way. with neither team able to move the ball. Early in the game Ray Fox, Dutch Danz, and Len Ciemniecki got together on a long drive capped by Bino Bandera ' s scoring slant. The remainder of the game was closely fought in the line, and Sherman’s veterans showed the edge. In the fourth period the Gobblers threatened on a long-passing offensive, but England. Prach, and co- captain Bob Gutt stiffened the forward walk with Eng- land recovering a fumble at the final gun. 136 ■ Little Bino Bar Her a is all alone with the Virginia team in one of the few Colonial gains at Char - lottesville. 1 ' • ■ •. -t • ' V » Vi V ' r Vt George Washington 20 Virginia Military 20 Homecoming ended on a disappointing note for the Buff and Blue supporters, George Chumbley ran a zig- zagging 46 yards to lie the contest up after some fans had left their seats to go home. With the accent on power running, GW had built up a seemingly safe 20 13 lead only to see it vanish in one unbelievable jaunt through the whole defensive team, IN orb “Dutch” Danz, the sturdy sophomore fullback, picked up 181 yards in 18 attempts to lead the Sherman men. Also outstanding was a long pass play from “Skinny” Saffer to jack Daly which completely baffled the Key (lets. The last three minutes saw both teams passing desperately to pull out a win. but time ran out with GW on the visitors 43 yard line. George Washington 0 West Virginia 24 West Virginia’s powerful Mountaineers, fresh from an upset victory over Pittsburgh, gave GW a really one- sided trouncing. Classy freshman Fred Wyant, led his team over the invaders, who could gain only 89 yards with the ball. The D. C. team’s offense was ragged, the passing spotty, and the defense hampered by injuries. One Colonial at least shone; Steve Korcheek performed brilliantly in five offensive and defensive positions while 1000 spectators from his Pennsylvania home town cheered him on. The defeat buried George Washington in third place in the Southern Coference, w ith little hope of overtaking unbeaten Duke. Ciemniecki struggles against a stout V.PJ. de- fense to set up the only score in the entire game. Looking on at the left is Clint Courtney . Speed demon Richie Gaskell sneaks behind the Virginia Tech defense to snare a long pass from Ray Fox. George Washington 21 Biieknell 7 Even in scoring three touchdowns, the Buff and Blue continued to rely on defense to upset Bucknell. The slam-bang split T of the first two games refused to move, hut fortunatel) the brick wall seniors rose to the occa- sion Prior to game time. Bucknell had won 19 of its last 20 games, placing them as two touchdown favorites. However, the highly touted " touchdown twins”, Myers and Talmadge found little room to display their wares. Early in the second stanza Jim England blocked a punt, which Boh Cult took into the end zone for the tally. After the guests tied it up Lou Donofrio intercepted a pass to set up one TIX and when Johnny Prach recov- ered a fumbled kickoff. Len Ciemniecki scored the clincher Ray Fox sweeps wide against V ,M J . Also in on the play are Don Freas (36) and Skinny Saffer (10). George Washington 40 Davison 13 The last home stand for the Colonials, and the final game for eleven seniors was a complete victory with everyone getting into the act Senior jack Baumgartner, starting his first game at quarterback, put on a real exhibition for his hometown friends; his ball-handling and passing finally lived up to his advance notices of four years ago Dutch Danz scored twice, and Baum- gartner, Jack Daly, Don Greene, and Ciemniecki had one each. Local fans had their last glimpse of seniors Bob Gutt, Frank Continetti, Tom Flyzik, Cecil Perkins, Jim England, George Sernkew, and Doonie Waldron, the defensive unit, as well as offensive seniors Baumgartner, Bino Barriera, and Paul Smith. 138 Freshman Lou Donofrio intercepts a Bucknell pass to set up the tie-breaking tally .

George Washington 29 Richmond 7 With their sixth and final victory the Colonials rounded out their best season since 1936, scoring e asily against a weak Richmond eleven. Bino Barrier a and Len Ciemniecki scored two apiece and Cecil Perkins added a safety to Gasped s three conversions The Spiders heralded passer Bobby Tyler, was frustrated all afternoon, finally passing for his team’s only tally in the last quarter. Continuing his hard work at fullback, N orb Dan z gained 147 yards in 19 sallies. Jack Baum- gartner ended the season as firststring quarter hack, leaving the wish that he could return for three more years This play was ruled interference on the one yard line , setting up one of the many scores against Davidson.

BASKETBALL Bill Reinhart fielded a basketball team which should rank with the finest in George Washington’s history. The Colonial cagers were ranked 22nd in the country and second in the Conference by preseason polls, and from all indications will live up to these predictions. Coach Reinhart has emphasized a high-powered offense that has made the Colonials leading point-makers in the country. The Ruff bucketmen are sparked by the two high- scoring Holup brothers, junior John and freshman Joe, and by the smooth ball-handling of veterans Tex Silver- man and Kenny Hirsch field. John broke the all-time individual scoring record with 30 points, only to see this mark eclipsed the next week by brother Joe’s 33, Other records broken to date include the all-time points per game record (113 against Duke) and the all-time area record for points in one game by two teams (200 by GW and Duke together). If any records are still standing, the chances are this season will see them broken. Including, we hope, the record for games won. 142 BASKETBALL RECORD 1952 [ )ecember 3 GW 90 9 GW 83 12 GW 87 13 GW 92 18 CW 68 20 GW 107 22 GW 113 J an nary 6 GW 98 8 GW 79 10 GW 81 13 GW 106 17 GW 69 February 3 GW 63 7 GW 90 9 GW 80 13 GW 108 14 GW 81 19 GW 98 24 GW 53 26 GW 70 27 GW 110 3 GW 64 Won 15 William and Mary 79 West Virginia 84 Virginia Military 66 Washington and Lee 77 C.

The Intramural Sports Program at GW was set up to provide an opportunity for all students to engage in some form of athletics. To participate in intramurals, a student need not he a professional or a varsity athlete, but need only possess an honest desire toward sports recreation. Joe Krupa, who handled the intramural program for the first half of the year, was promoted to executive officer of the Physical education department. His intra- mural job was assumed by assistant baseball coach Yinnie deAngelis, Student assistants Paul Cajigas and Interfraternity Sports Director Eddie Beale have given aid in the operation of the program. Awards are made for all sports, and an intramural Trophy for total points is awarded every spring. Last Year’s cup went to Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, w r hile Sandy Schlemrner of that organization took individual honors. The objectives of the program are, briefly, to provide social contacts for the students; to develop group spirit, scholarship, and sportsmanship; and to promote better health in both mind and body. 1952 bowling champions check their scores while warm- ing up for their tide defense, Tom Beale , Mike Rapport , Bob McGrath , and Bob Montgomery wait for individual champ Tom Israel to return from setting up pins , Fred Warder ( Delta Tau Delta) and Ord Alexander (Pi Kappa Alpha ) exchange jabs in the intramural boxing matches .

Reaching for the short bird requires a lot of fast foot- work to foil the opponent’s point. Ar chery and tennis are sports which most women enjoy because they can be played by both men and women all through life- Special buses take the students to the field and the courts. Besides class instruction, competition is available within the University and with other colleges. Hockey is one of the most invigorating and exciting of the team sports offered at the University- The girls become adept enough at the sport to play other college teams, such as those of Maryland University. American University, and Marjorie Webster. An honorary varsity team is chosen at the end of the season from the girls who have played especially well during the games.

Badminton classes are held twice a week during the winter season. Beginners are given instruction while intermediate and advanced players demonstrate that practice makes perfect in this fast- moving sport. Com- petition in badminton for both men and women consists of doubles, mixed doubles and singles. Basketball instruction is given during the winter sea- son, with games held between the classes of the Univer- sity a nd with outside schools. From the class teams are chosen the girls who play the interscholastic games, and from these the honorary varsity who comprise the best players at the University. The varsity as a team plays one game with the alumnae. Golf is definitely not the businessman’s sport at the George Washington University, It is one of the most popular sports with the women during the fall and spring seasons. Classes use the facilities at Hains Point, making use of the driving range, the putting green, and the golf course. Beginners and Intermediate tourna- ments for individuals, women’s twosomes, and mixed twosomes are held. A favorite winter sport at GW is basketball, and the girls go in for it in a big way . The skills in- volved are taught to begin tiers, and emphasis is given to practice in conditioning and ball handling.
