SWIMMING is rapidly establishing itself as
a maj,or sport in women's athletics in this
institution. We have a fine pool, well-kept,
which should receive a good deal of attention
from the students. Swimming is an activity
which can be engaged in long after one leaves
school. It is a sport thatcan be enjoyed singly
or in company. For these reasons more people
than do should come out for swimming on
Our school is not without good swimmers.
Under the instruction of Miss Branstad several
of these swimmers have w.orked until they have
become eligible for the Red Cross Life Saving
Award. To receive this award, a girl must be
proficient enough in swimming to pass a rigid
test of skill as outlined by the Red Cross organ-
ization. The following compose the Life Saving
Corps: Betty Smith, Gertrude Peterson, Vivian
Bach, Marguerite Lewis, Eunice Manske, La
Verne Jensen, and Lucille Kay.
Could you name three persons who have
not heard of the new craze that has swept
this school? It is badminton, of course. The
game is a veritable whirlwind that has picked
up players of all kinds and set them down on
the badminton court in South Hall. Every-
body's playing it! It is a fascinating English
game introduced into this country from Canada.
No less than six tournaments were held this
year, four of them sponsored by the W. A. A.
In the women's singles elimination tournament,
consisting of twenty-four entries, La Vernia
Jorgenson defeated Miss Branstad for the title,
three games to two. In the women's doubles
ladder tournament, made up of twelve teams,
that ran for a period of eight weeks, Elizabeth
Mason and Eunice Manske were the winners.
The .Ioos-Branstad and Peterson-Jorgenson
teams were runners-up. The mixed doubles lad-
der tournament that lasted for seven weeks was
won by Miss Branstad and Doctor Owens. The
Williams-Manske and Setterquist-Mrs. Owens
teams were runners-up. This was the largest
tournament of all, twenty-four teams having
Based on their final positions in the ladder
tournament, mixed doubles teams were seeded
for an elimination tournament. In the finals
played on All Sport Night, Dr. Owens and Miss
Branstad won over Elizabeth' Mason and James
This was the sport sponsored by the W. A. A.
that had the greatest number and widest variety
of participants. Badminton has gained a prom-
inent position in the intramural games. It was
one of the features of All Sport Night, held this
year for the first time, on April 19 in the North
Hall gym. This night was devoted to the play-
ing-off of title-matches in the intramural sports
that have gained the widest following.

BOUT thirty girls reported for the first volleyball practice of the year.
The volleyball season was rather short this year as it was cut into by both
baseball and basketball. Viola Granicia, Joyce Snow, and Edith Bauer were
selected to captain the teams. A round robin tournament of nine games was
arranged. Viola Granicia's team Won the tournament, winning five out of six
games. The sport head, Stella Tobiassen, and the captains selected an honor
team as follows: LaVernia Jorgenson, Effie Tobiassen, LaVerne Jensen, Emma
Svobocla, Marion Boles, Bernice Deiss, Lillie Ahlgren and Lucile Creswell.
N SPRING a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of-well, you guess:
but in autumn a young woman's thoughts turn toward hockey. Synony-
mous with the opening of school is the opening of the hockey season. From
then until Jack Frost comes the shrill cry of the referees whistle can be heard
coming from the hockey field on south campus. Because hockey is a strenuous
activity, calling for genuine interest and physical endurance from the partici-
pants, not many reported for this sport. But for those who like it hockey is
Two teams captained by Marion Boles and Mae Eurbur engaged in a
seesaw battle for hockey supremacy. Marion Boles' team Won the iirst two
games of the tournament. Not Wanting to go down without a iight, Mae
Furbur's team took the next two games, thus tying the percentage standings.
The fifth game was a tie, neither side being able to score to take the lead in the
tournament. The last game was a game! Amidst a mad. scrambled thrash of
hockey clubs and players' legs, Marion's team succeeded in winning the tourna-
ment 2-l! It was with great reluctance that the teams put away their clubs,
balls, and shin guards until the next hockey season rolls around.

The spring baseball season found two teams
brushing up on their baseball form in antici-
pation of what they would do to their rivals.
A schedule of five games was arranged between
the E. Tobiassen and L. Jorgenson teams. As a
result ,of heavy slugging and fine team work,
Eflie Tobiassen's team subdued Jorgenson's team
to win the tournament. Elizabeth Hilyar was
This time-h.onored sport was introduced in
this institution this year. It promises to become
very popular, as about thirty girls gave evidence
of their interest in it. Miss Branstad is instruct-
ing the girls to shoot according to the Rounse-
velle method. The good feature of this meth.od
is that one is taught six fundamental principles
that enable one to correct his own faults and
errors. After the period of instruction, a Colum-
bia Round was shot.
The W. A. A. introduced a new sport into its
program this year-hit-pin ball. The game is
developed on the combined principles of baseball
and soccer. Played indoors, it is a fast, exciting
game. Three teams of twelve players each were
selected to play in a tournament consisting of
fourteen games. Edith Stewart, Catherine Ho-
gan, and Joyce Snow were team captains: May
Heckel was sp.ort head.
The tournament lasted for a period of seven
weeks. The excellent team work and alertness
displayed by Edith Stewart's team were sufficient
reasons for it to win the tournament. The honor
team, selected by the captains and sport head,
was made up of the following players: Lillie
Ahlgren, Marion Anderson, Lucile Creswell, La
Vernia Jorgenson, Emma Svoboda, Effie Tobi-
assen, Stella Tobiassen, La Verne Jensen, and
Eunice Manske. Because of the interest displayed
in the sport this year, it will be added to the
W. A. A. sport program.
Each spring and fall the W. A. A. conducts
a tennis tournament. Because of the uncertainty
of the weather, these tournaments are often
much delayed. The finals of the fall tourna-
ment were played on a cold, windy day in
Cctober. La Vernia Jorgenson defeated Eunice
Manske for the title 6-2, 8-6. Her superior
drives and placements were responsible for her
winning. Singles and doubles tournaments were
held late in the spring.
