Quoits Trophy HOMSESMOES INSTEAD of individuals or classes, organized houses of the campus arc the competitors in the sport of horseshoes. Members in each house first contend for the honor of representing their group in the tournament. A loving cup. awarded in 1924 by Piper f Taft. is the prize awarded to the house winning the cham- pionship. Lewis Hall held the trophy for two years and threatened to retain it permanently by winning it for the third consecutive year, but Sylvia Smaby and Marie Hogan. members of the Beta Phi Alpha team, defeated the Lewis Hall team in the finals and secured the cup. Twenty houses entered their teams last year under the managership of Alma Petersen. Their faculty adviser was Miss Leone Hcimich. HlKI NG SUPPER hikes and W. A. A. jaunts are the diversions offered under the title of hiking, which is directed by Miss Leone Helmich. In order to have credit for a quarter ' s participation in hik- ing, a girl must take one five- mile hike each week and participate in two V. A. A. general hikes. Our natural surroundings in Seattle make hiking a particularly pleasurable sport, for even in rainy weather the temperature never falls low enough to make the outdoors disagreeable. Hikes to Broad- moor Lighthouse. Madison Park, the Palisades. Laurelhurst Beach and around Green Lake are some of the trips taken by the outdoor enthusiasts under the managership of Margaret Kenyon. Mioi:p g Ml D I N G is one of the few outdoor sports which continues throughout the year and which is not affected by rain as the classes have the use of an indoor riding ring. To determine which girls are most skilled in horsemanship, three competitions — called Gym- kanas — are held each quarter. Both beginners and advanced students take part. Most of the work under Instructor A. C. Rickey is devoted to learn- ing to walk. trot, canter and gallop. For advanced students some polo has been attempted with suc- cess. Dorothy Findlay is W. A. A. manager for the sport. Riding has been a fairly new addition to the Physical Education curriculum.

Irene Stephens and Elinor Stephens won the loving cup offered in the doubles championship when they defeated Carolyn Barron and Verna MacDonald. the runners-up. By defeating her sister, Elinor. Irene Stephens merited the loving cup for the singles champion- ship, in the final match of the season. New tennis courts in the women ' s athletic field, located on old Denny Field, have added impetus to tennis enthusiasm this year. GOIvF EVEN the girl who lacks skill and experience in sports can keep up her hope of victory, now that the Women ' s Athletic Association has inaugurated the " handicap golf tournament. " This innovation in golf evens the chances of all players, and makes the competition individual instead of inter-class, as is the case in most other sports. A loving cup awaits the victor of the tournament each year. Mr. Jefferson, professional instructor of the University Golf Club, is the instructor in all golf classes. Washington ' s golf course, following the shore of the lake, now affords nine holes. New land, ad- joining the present course has been purchased by University authorities, and a short time within the future, students will be afforded a thirty-six hole course on which to try their skill. riss]
