MODERN DANCING CLUB TO FROLIC IN RHYTHM TliXH I BITIONISM was not oneof the fundamen- tal purposes of the Modern Dancing Club. To develop coordination, good posture, and a sense of rhythm were rather the chief aims of its members, under the excellent leadership and training of Miss Virginia Harman. One night each week the girls gathered in the gym for exercises and technique work, and when they became more experienced, even composed their own dances. The help in ballroom dancing which the dancers derived was nearly all indirect, except that the ability to move in correct time with music, a sense of balance, and good posture all are assets to any good ballroom dancer. For its activity programs, the club either dis- cussed the cultural aspects of the modern dance or joined with Miss Catherine Wood’s club in lessons in social dancing. Feeling that no executive officers were necessary, the girls elected only a treasurer, Wilma Carter; other rhythmicers included Elizabeth Brown, Wilma DeHaven, Peggy Dobson, Lorene Duncan, Jean Edwards, Irene French, Madeline Gwynn, Aileen Hale, Juanita Haley, Katherine Harman, Billie Harris, Doris Howlett, Margaret Hudson, Alma Hurst, Mary Johnson, Ruth Johnson, Lucille Mar- tin, Ruth Nelson, Evelyn Pettyjohn, Dorothy Pyrtle, Blanche Rash, Lois Rosenbaum, Mary Ryan, Margaret Shrader, Donna Smith, Hazel Stone, Eva Mae Surber, Doris Surratt, Ruth Wallace, Donna W illis, and Elizabeth Vaughan.

Al- though the membership was purely male, ihev chose M iss Elizabeth Blair as their sponsor. The boys participated in a contest sponsored by Harrison-Hancock Hardware Company, and the winner, David Jameson, was presented with a six- foot gas model kit. The runners-up — James Farmer, Dennis Frye, Lloyd Byrd, Jeff French, and Frank Akers- also received model kits. The club planned a number of other model meets for the spring, and the contests were held both indoors and out. For their programs, interesting talks were given by visitors on different phasesof model building, and some of the meetings were building sessions in which the boys worked individually or in small groups. The whole club was very active throughout the year, with David Jameson as President; Donald Richardson, Vice-President; Elmer Robinson, Sec- retary; and Sonny Eggert, Treasurer. Other aero- nautical aspirants were Frank Akers, Kelley Albert, Lloyd Byrd, Douglas Crowell, Bill Dudley, Walter Fanning, James Farmer, James French, Dennis Frye, Thomas Harrell, H. W. Huff, Edward King, Dave Laughon, Clyde Marshall, Dow Owens, Billy Rorrer, Lawrence Roseberry, Bearl Ross, Howard Schrader, Louis Shaffer, Howard Silcox, Carl Stafford, and Rollin White.
