THE COLLECIATE lOl
'15 Q A vi, -
GIRLS' SPORTS V
LTHOUGH the athletic activities of the girls for 1945-46 have not
been completed, those that have been, have been most success-
ful and most enjoyable for all who have taken part. '
- To Miss-Ramsden especially, and also to Mrs. Wfinter, who so ef-
ficiently took over Mrs. Claxton's position when she left to be with her
returned husband, and to Miss VVilson, our new gym instructress, we, of
the Girls' Athletic Association want to extend our deepest thanks and appre-
ciation for their understanding and assistance.
This year's athletic Executive is headed by the Honorary Presidents:
Mr. Sinclair Miss Ramsden Miss XYilson
President: Ioan Cowan Secretary: Mary Jean Armstrong
Vice-President: Ruth Hawley Treasurer: janet Helliwell
Track and Field, Fran Vtfhitnellg Basketlball, Lois Soperg Volleyball,
Betty Byrns, Dancing, Marilyn Fox, Speedball, Jewell Dupeeg Swimming,
Catherine Overholt, Qnow Barbara Geddesjg Badminton, Bernice Friedman:
Softball, Hope Millholland.
I should like to take a little time to explain briefly, the work of the
members of the executive. These twelve girls, representing the Girls' Ath-
letic Association, meet on the first Monday of each month to discuss any busi-
ness that may concern their activities and to record gym work in the form
of marks. They also arrange the supervision of after-school activities.
Each girl on the G.A.E. has a particular night on which she super-
vises the games in the gym. It is her duty to engage referees, umpires, and
score keepers, and to see that games are started on time. After the games
are over she gives each girl who has played, credit for playing, and each girl
who has refereed, umpired, and score kept, credit for officiating. These
credits are given in the form of check marks. At this time she posts the
games for the following day and prepares the score-sheets.
At the end of the month the check marks, which the girls receive, are
totalled. Each month marks are given for attendance and costume. Also,
posture tests are given several times and marks awarded according to the
grade received. Marks are also given for swimming tests passed. For each
game played, two marks are given, similarly for each game refereed. One
mark each is awarded for an umpire or score keeping check. The captains
of the different sports are voted on by their teams as to their efficiency

In the held of jazz music, especially, has percussion suddenly become a
highly important, indispensable adjunct of a musical organization. Every
great dance band in the world- uses drumsg and in virtually eveny instanjce,
the most ofteni publicized is the drummer, and, therefore, the most often fea-
tured memlber of each group.
Drummers like Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, and Dave Tough are not only
excellent soloists but equally talented as "section menf' or ensemble drum-
mers. lf they iveren't they'd be unkown rather than internationally noted
as they are. A drummer must be versatile. His seense of rhythm must be
perfect. lle must be proficient on the bass drum, struck by foot peclalg wood
blocks: various cymbals: the snare drum, upon which he uses both sticks
and wire brushes: cow bellsg whistlesg sock cymbals, also manipulated by
foot pedal as well as by stick:1 and brushesg and any one of a dozen other
implements including temple blocks, chimes, and in some cases, vibraharps.
In all the world there is but one nation without drums, that nation is
japan. All other nations have them and in most native areas it is the stan-
dard musical instrument. And so the world of music rolls on with the per-
cussion instruments providing the beat and rhythm.
