WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION ERI-IAPS the most active women's organization in school is the W. A. A., one without whose existence school would be a dull affair. Here it is that the vigorous spirit of the women students manifests itself. This organization need put forth no effort to secure new members-all good athletes seek it out. and they need not fear being refused admission. The W. A. A. welcomes all women who are interested in and who are willing to put forth a little effort to further women's athletics. To be sure, once having joined the group one must livc up to its standards, but they are not too high-fifty points a year being sufficient to retain one's standing as an active member. Points are awarded on the basis of attendance and ability. The sports program is varied to suit individual tastes. Among the organized sports are basketball, hockey, baseball, volleyball, and hit pin ball. Of the individual sports, badminton, tennis, archery, and swimming have a consider- able following. Several tournaments are run off in both tennis and badminton. In addition to this, the W. A. A. sponsors a spring camping trip. With such a program to choose from, a girl has every opportunity to participate in the activity that suits her best. These sports are supervised by Miss Branstad and the student sports heads. Activity meetings are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 P. M. The first activity meetings in each sport are devoted to an attempt to master skills and techniques. After a few practice sessions tournaments are run off in each sport-tournaments that are colorful and exciting. At the end of each tourna- ment an honor team is selected from the best players in the group. Business meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month. The executive council, composed of the adviser, the officers and the sport heads, manages the affairs of the group. Awards consist of a W. A. A. membership pin, attainable only when a member has accumulated 250 p.oints, an received upon the amassing of 500 points, and a Red Cross Life Saving Emblem, secured upon passing the official Red Cross Life Saving Test. Endeavoring to have a sports program that will suit the taste of every member, the organization sponsors a spring camping trip at the Y. M. C. A. camp at Lake St. Croix for th.ose who feel the urge to live close to nature. The camping trip is scheduled for a week-end in May. Swimming, boating, hiking, baseball, archery, and treasure hunts are all part of the recreation while in camp. For those who like their recreation mild, there is always an opportunity to sleep or read! At any rate, camp is a wonderful place to be in the spring, for it gives one a chance to relax after a long winter. It is one of the highlights of the spring program, and it is much anticipated by the W. A. A. members. H531

Pedersen Svoboda BASKETBALL N eternal gift of gratitude will be Dr. Nai- smith's for his invention of this popular game. During the winter months basketball is king. Thirty-five girls reported for the first practice of the year. The first few practices were given over to developing fundamentals and to short periods of practice play. After a few meetings three teams were selected, captained by Bernice Deiss, Ardyth Grupe, and Eunice Manske. A round robin tournament of eight- een games was arranged. The sharp-shooting Grupe team got off to an early lead in the tour- nament, which they held until the finish. Man- ske's team, which was slow in reaching its top form, placed second, while the jinxed Deiss team placed third. The games were colorful and exciting, played with a Zip and dash that aroused interest. In addition to the regular tournament games several games were played with the River Ealls high school teams. Early in February the college women were hosts to the high school teams in the college gym. Three games were played, all three being won by the college teams. ln March the high school girls returned the invitation. Again three games were played, and again the college women won. The officiating for the games was handled by Miss Branstad and several of the girls. La Vernia Jorgenson was sport head for the season. The captains and sport head selected an honor team as follows: guards-Efbe Tobiassen, Jea- nette Griflith, Emma Svoboda, Edith Stewart, and Lucile Creswellg forwards-Stella Tobias- sen, Ardyth Grupe, Bernice Deiss, La Vernia Jorgenson, and Eunice Manske. f154l
