IULIA CLossoN The Women's Athletic Association is comprised of girls who have won the official Graceland "G" for women. These letters are earned by participation in inter-society athletics, tumbling, hikes, and the gym show. Fifty points for one year, or forty-Hve points for each of two consecutive years, are required to obtain a letter. The purpose of the W. A. A. is to co-operate with the Department of Phy- sical Education for Women in promoting health, athletic accomplishments, and good sportsmanship by means of athletic activities among the women of the collegeg to emphasize mass participation through intra-mural programs, and through a varied program which will meet the interests of all college women: to promote those activities which may be adapted to the needs of after-college life, and to promote the health concept with the hope of actual improvement in the habits of living. This association sponsors and organizes Play Day, which was held this year on Graceland's athletic field, April 30, among the girls of neighboring high schools. This association also helps with the advertising, costuming, and arrang- in of th l G Sh ' ' ' ' g e annua ym ow, and is consulted in all matters pertaining to college sports for women. 46

r,-v, ' .' . ' p 4 , 1 A CAPELLA Organizations which have been associated with the college for any length of time are often taken for granted. Few of our present students realize the A Capella chorus has like other college organizations grown to its present size and quality from a meagre beginning. In 1923 Miss Carlile conceived the idea of organizing a chorus for the sing- ing of unaccompanied music. Previous to this time there were no unaccom- panied choral groups in this part of Iowa and few in any part of the state. A Capella singing was comparatively a new thing, for this reason Miss Carlile's initiative was the more commendable. Crraceland's musical activities consisted of the Oratorio society, a glee club, a ladies' quartet, and a men's quartet. Miss Carlile combined the two quartets and selected from the town and college eight other singers, making in all, a group of sixteen people, and this group became the first A Capella chorus. The work of organizing the chorus did not end, however, with the choosing of voices. Next came the difficult task of developing a repertoire of suitable music. At first the chorus sang only part of its program unaccompanied, but gradually it grew away from the practice of singing accompanied music until at last it sang only A Capella. Miss Carlile has never been satisfied with merely using glee club music, and she is now the director of a chorus with a fine repertoire from such masters as: Di Lasso, Palestrina, Elgar, Bantock, Cesar-cui, Gretchaninoff, and Christiansen. The A Capella also is an honor organization and those who are chosen as members because of their ability are deemed very fortunate. The membership is now made of twenty-four college people. 48
