balls, and shin and knee guards.
In calling the girls out Miss Curran stated that, as none had any former ex-
perience in the game, all had an equal chance. Girls who did not belong to the
orgapization were invited to try out for this, too. A large number of girls re-
sponded to the call. Practices were held every Wednesday and Thursday after-
noon during the season. For a few weeks there was a nnticeable number of girls
limping and complaining of skinned knees and sore ankles, but the athletes soon
learned to master the sticks.
Two teams were organized, the Blue Streaks with Emma Remley as captain,
and the Red Flashes with Lillian Wood as captain. A tournament was held and
the Blue Streaks became the champions.
At the close of the season the W. A. A. gave a banquet in honor of the cham-
pions. This banquet was held in the College Cafeteria and about fifty members of
the organization attended. Adaline Garley, a member of the winning team, acted
as toastmistress. Several speeches were given. Miss Curran gave a short talk on
the fundamentals of the game. She commented on the enthusiasm with which the
sport was received. - According to general opinion field hockey promises to be one
of the permanent major sports.
After the tournament a varsity team was chosen, composed of Marion Cudd,
Adaline Garley, Dorothy Grorud, Maurita Grorud, Ruth Hall, Fern Hanson, Emma
Remley, Florence Schwellenbach, Anastasia Whalen, and Lillian Woods. These
girls were chosen because they were best qualified for the positions they played, and
received one hundred points in W. A. A. credit. Other players received fifty points.
So much interest was shown in field hockey that the organization is contemplat-
ing introducing ice-hockey soon.

Teams in volleyball and basketball were organized during the winter term.
A tournament was held for each sport. In the spring the girls participated in
kit'tenball, archery, tennis, and track meets. Miss Curran introduced field hockey
as the major fall sport.
The organization promoted pep at mass meetings by stunts. The float at the
Homecoming parade was placed second. On Victory Day the girls readily re-
sponded to a last minute call to help give the program. Besides working for points
to get their sweaters the girls joined in a campaign to sell tickets for a benefit
minstrel, the proceeds to go toward buying sweaters for the girls and men.
In addition to the athletic activities, the girls enjoy many social functions. As
a climax the girls spent a weekend at Camp St. Croix.

VOLLEYBALL was the first indoor sport of the year. It was started later in
the season than usual, because of the new fall sport, hockey. Practices were
started in October and extended through December. , They were held every Tues-
day at four dclock. Ellen Magnuson was elected head of volleyball. Teams were
organized after a few weeks of practice, and because of the large number of fresh-
men who were out for volleyball, two teams were organized. There was only one
upper class team. Freshman Team I, consisting of Ruby Howe, Beatrice Forsyth,
Gladys Bengstrom, Lois Thoreson, Ada Hanson, Jane Simonson, Elizabeth Mills,
and Bernice Sutherland, chose Marion Cudd for their captain. Phyllis Miller was
chosen captain of Freshman Team II, which consisted of Olga Seitz, Ruth Hall,
Evelyn Urness, Alice Trumbouer, Mildred Howe, Edith Peterson, Clarice Olsen, and
Hazel Ludke. The upper class team with Frances Bonney captain was made up
of the following: Victoria Niemcek, Maurita Grorud, Bernice Wennerberg, Norma
Anderson, Emma Remley, Florence Schwellenbach, Norma Haunschild, Evelyn
Peterson, Sylvia Berven, and Helen Lamson.
The tournament was scheduled for the week preceding Christmas recess. An
exciting series of games was played. Frantic cries of iiassisf, echoed through the
corridors of South Hall, especially during the tournament finals. The captains gave
their players chalk-talks that proved that each team Was out for the championship.
Marion Cudd's team came through victorious. The fame of the team spread until
the faculty men heard of it and challenged them to a game to be played in the
North Hall gymnasium for an assembly meeting. For some unknown reason this
game was never played.
At the end of the season the W. A. A. gave a reception in honor of the different
teams. This was held in the social room. Myrtle Mattson was the chairman of the
committee to plan this reception.
