BASEBALL O the baseball player, spring is the most wel- I come time of year It means a rousin good . I g time spent out ,of doors whacking the old limbs into shape for another baseball season. Chasing balls, catching balls, batting balls-doing any- thing wilih balls-bring delight to the baseball player. 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 sport head. ARCHERY 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. HIT-PIN BALL 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. I9 TENNIS 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.

SWIMMING 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 Wednesdays. 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. BADMINTON 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 entered. 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 May. 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.
