PLANNING THEIR STRATEGY, the juniors group together at the GAA swimming meet, while more industnous participants practice. GAA Girls Participate in the Many Athletic Activities Available The Girls’ Athletic Association offered many activities this year. A bike hike was held in October with a picnic following. A co-recreational night offered much joy in November. December saw the annual Christmas party. Initiation of officers was held in January. The highlight of the year, the slumber party held in the Rocky girls’ gym, came in February. A Pa and Me Party followed in March with the girls bringing their fathers for an evening of fun and frolic. The last month of activity, April, brought election of officers and a mother-daughter banquet. To become a member and join in these activities, a girl must have met certain requirements. When a girl is a sophomore, she can start earning points. These points can be earned in intramural activities and various jobs in the organization. Twenty-four points must be earned by the January meeting. When a girl has been a GAA member for one year, she is automatically a member the next year and has only to pay her dues and have a heart check. But if she does not earn 24 points in her second year, she must begin again for her third year membership. AN ASTOUNDING JUMP by two of the players in girPs intramurals leaves the remaining players astonished. 142 GAA

The Girls’ Athletic Association is open to all girls who have earned enough points by the January meeting, have had a heart check, and have paid their dues. The GAA girls participated in an active program to build them athletically as well as emotionally and socially. This program included, of course, athletic performances and events. In addition, various social activities were held. The big event of the GW year was the annual slumber party.
