eontafioua eheetbzy l Cheer for the Terrors, Terrors will win. If they don't, it won't be because the Pep Club didn't do their part in leading yells to spur the team on. Organized this year, the Pep Club has already shown itself to be a true Terror organization. At the beginning of the year, the requirement for membership was made seven hundred and fifty G. A. A. points. Under this rule, the following girls were made charter members of the club: Glenna Fulker, Dorothy Beck. Erma Ruth Callaway, Billie Pappas. Olledine Dunaway, Lorraine Fortney, and Marjorie Pittman. Glenna Fulker was elected president. Stunts for the halves of games were worked out by the club. Pep parades and demonstrations were co-sponsored by the Pep Club and other pep organizations of the school. ln the fall, a chili supper was given by the Pep Club for the football team. Later in the year a picnic was given for the basketball team and then a party for the golf and track teams. The girls in the Pep Club wore original snappy uniforms of brown and white which were in themselves evidence of the purpose and school spirit of the Pep Club girls. Mes and lfouea l Not satisfied with the occasional hike or swim given by the main body of G. A. A., a group of the members formed a subsidiary of the Girls Athletic Association and called it The Outing Club. This was in turn divided into special interest groups. Helen Bridges was chosen president of the outing group. Under her were other girls who were appointed heads of the special groups. These groups included horse-back riding, tennis, swimming, ice- skating, hiking and bicycling. Girls especially proficient in these fields were chosen to head the group interested in some certain sport. The Outing Club was formed primarily for the purpose of providing a systematic arrangement of time and capable leadership for various sports in which the G. A. A. members were interested. This past year, the Outing Club was considered an experiment, but, as it has shown itself such an efficient organization, it will probably be organized on a larger scale next vear.

A. than any- thing else we know-" So sing the members of the Girls Athletic Association, and good reason for it, too. A wide and varied program of activities and capable leadership combined to make this past year a very succwsful one for the girl athletes. Lorraine Fortney was president of the club, with Lois Blakey as a very helpful vice-president. As secretary of the club Margie Lee Baker took minutes at meetings and notified new members. Mar- guerite Bartell collected dues in her capacity as treasurer. Miss Sherwood and Mrs. Bur- brink very successfully guided the organization through its program for 1937-38. In the fall of the school term a Mother-Daughter Tea was given for the members and the mothers of the members. An annual affair, this tea has never failed to be a success. In the spring the G. A. A. banquet was held to bid adieu to the seniors, install next year's officers, and present ll0l awards to the girls who had earned them. Each year a G. A. A. sweater is given to the girl who has earned the most points during the year. A small loving cup is given to the girl who earns the most points in her three years in high school. Stiff competition within the club made it an exciting race. The high point girls were not announced until the night of the banquet. l Under the auspices of the Girl's Athletic Association, two important clubs were organ- ized. The Girls Pep Club was organized to serve as an additional honor to girls who had earned over seven hundred and fifty points. Later the requirement was lowered to four hundred and fifty. The Outing Club was formed to make it possible for the members to do all the outdoor sports they wanted to and still have it under the direction and guidance of the Girls Athletic Association.

Ln, the Inman Feminine Fielders l The call of the open fields was heard in September when the girls, wildly leaping and bounding in their chain of activities, calmly tore up the earth in the baseball field. Their clamor was heard a long way off as someone opposing the team made a home-run or a score was made. Those sister teams, Marguerite WINNING BASKETBALL TEAM DECK TENNIS PLAYERS BASEBALL CHAMPIONS 112 I Bartell, representing the seniors, and Betty lane Bartell, representing the sophomores, were the outstanding teams. During the finals it was a toss-up between the teams to see which would win. After a grueling battle Marguerite Bartell won, 12-8, a hard won victory for the seniors. Quoits and Quirks I From the name of the sport, anyone could surmise that the game is a version of tennis played on a deck. So far, so good-but there is a great deal more to playing it than this. A recently introduced sport in C. S. H. S., deck tennis attracted a great many girls the past season. Skill and agility figured greatly in the mastery of the game. Deck tennis was included in the regular schedule of after-school sports. Points were given for attendance and proficiency in the sport. Champions for this last session were Erma Ruth Callaway and Betty Virginia Bonds. Quoits and quirks to- gether made the matches interesting and exciting. Hoops, My Dear! l When the baseball-deck tennis season ended, basketball was started next. The girls were organized into class teams, seniors, juniors, and sophomores. When the question of the inter-class championship had been battled out in favor of the sophomore class, color teams were organized with girls from each class represented. There were six or eight of these teams. Another tournament was played to determine the title among these color teams. At the end of the season, several sessions were held for tests on basketball rules and regulations, basket-shooting, and for vari- ous other skills involved in basketball.
