WOMEN'S GYM SHOW ,,, Z, The Womens Athletic Department for the year 1931-32 was under the efficient direction of Mrs. Eugene T. Closson. If she has enjoyed working with the girls they have doubly appreciated her methods of supervision in conducting classes and in sponsoring outside activities. She has suc- ceeded in transferring the G. G. A. C. into the national organization of the Women s Athletic Association, which is advantageous for all girls earning a letter. Thus they are automatically eligible for membership in other schools in which the W. A. A. has an active chapter. Mrs. Closson's enthusiastic interest in all games and sports, together with her delightful personality have won for her the deep admiration of all her stu- dents. Together they have brought about a successful year's work. The eighth annual Gym Show was given this year on April 29, under the direction of Mrs. Closson, director of women's phys- ical education. All members of the gym classes participated in some manner. This is one of the main presentations of the school year, and being a greatly anticipated event it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Always very effective in design, marching utilizes a large number of girls. Each formation, though apparently quite intricate, was carried out with ease and precision. The tumbling squad, composed of twenty-two members pre- sented an act requiring skill and much hard practice. The difficult rolls and pyramid building received the greatest applause. The remainder of the show consisted of clog, tap, buck, and interpretative dancing. The Country Dance was effectively worked out by fourteen girls in colonial costume, centering around Emily McCormick as Martha and Beaulah Frase as George Washington. The clever combinations of Liza lane with the Iockey dance was much appreciated. Fourteen girls were led in the dance by Margery Boyd as Black Liza lane, and Margaret Anderson as Black Rastus. Anabel Traxler, Marie Gaylord, and Bertha Garver added zest to the pro- gram with their interpretative presentation of the snappy Irish dance, Daughters of Rosy G'Grady. An unusual number was then added and which was known as the Athletic Line Routine, a compilation of various steps and line forma- tions. Kathleen Snead, Elizabeth Smith, and Florence Gamet rakishly attired in the appropriate dress portrayed the Pirate Dance in a very realistic manner. Hayfoot was a short but interesting number in which Betty Massie, and Lois Hatch in the proper "hick" attire did exceptionally well. Swiss Theme, an interpretative dance, was gracefully and artistically done by Gretchen Kelley, Lois Prall, and Ieannette Burstrom. The dainty and color- ful costumes added much to the beauty of the number. The Carolinas was a peppy group of eight uniform costumes and the Buck, also composed of eight girls wearing sailor's uniforms, was indeed clever. A tap dance to the Iowa Ciorn song in which every girl took part was the grand finale of the whole s ow. Iurm T. CLossoN 44
