THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
RGANIZED to sponsor W0men's intramural athletics is this very active group
of college women. Membership in the association is not obligatory for those who
wish to participate in athletics, but it is this group which selects the sports managers for
each activity and which sponsors the tournaments that are run off in the various games.
Activity meetings devoted to group sports are held each Tuesday and Thursday at
four o'clock. Business meetings are held twice a month. This year's procedure was varied
slightly so that one meeting was of a social and the other of a business nature. Social
meetings were highlighted by several interesting parties.
In an effort to arouse more interest in athletics and to secure the attention of pros-
pective members, the WAA sponsored an intramural sports day soon after school
convened. The innovation was a huge success. More than forty new girls participated
in this all-school, all-girls play day. The time was spent in playing basketball, pinball,
ping-pong and swimmingg the activity period was followed by a six-thirty dinner in
the cafeteria. The day served to promote good fellowship between upper and under
classmen and to attract new members for the group.
Another feature of the association's yearly program is the sports day held each
winter with Eau Claire as guest. This year's sports day was held on March 30, Eau
Claire Won out in the day's competition by taking three of the five events, thus winning
for the third time, and permanently, the possession of the Falcon Cup. In addition to
the sports events of the day, a luncheon was served to the group at the Hotel Gladstone,
this was followed by a social hour and dancing.
Events still pending on the organization,s spring program are the spring camping
trip to Lake St. Croix, the outdoor sports meet at Eau Claire, the spring tennis tourna-
ment, and the baseball tournament. At the end of the year the organization terminates
its activities with a banquet at which letter-winners and graduating seniors are honored.
To win the WAA "R" a girl must earn at least 500 points in intramural competition.
The activities of this year's group were capably directed by Leona Rhodey, presidentg
Dolores Kramschuster, vice-president, Dorothy Parrish, secretaryg Mildred Birkmose,
treasurer, and June johnson, point secretary. Miss Mary Louise Branstad acts as the
group's very efiicient adviser.

HOCKEY officially opens the women's intramural sports season. As in other years,
the hockey crowd was small, since the game is rather rough and enervating. This
crowd can be trusted, though, to make up in spirit and enthusiasm what it lacks in
numbers. The hockey season runs for the Hrst five weeks in the fall and of the five,
three are devoted to tournament play.
The struggle for the championship was limited to two teams, one captained by Joyce
Chubb, the other by Irene Raawe. Out of a total of five tournament games Raaweis
team won four, all of them by decisive scores.
The championship team was composed of Mildred Birkmose, Beth Feldman, Annette
Gantenbein, Dolores Kramschuster, Bernice Lovell, Dorothy Lovell, Eunice Manske,
Marion Saul, Dorothy Parrish, Helen Engebretson and Irene Raawe.
Bernice Lovell was sports head for the hockey season.
A highly exciting game is this one of hit-pin baseball. Played on an indoor baseball
diamond, the game combines the element of soccer and baseball. Perhaps because it is so
easily learned, this game attracts many participants each year.
Three teams, captained by Beth Feldman, Audrey Rolson, and Betty Miles, played
off a round-robin tournament that ended in Feldman's team Winning the championship.
out of eight games played Feldman's team won six and lost two, Miles' team lost four
and won four, and Rolson's team won two and lost six.
An honor team of ten members was picked, consisting of Phyllis Case, Joyce Chubb,
Beth Feldman, Virginia Griffith, Eunice Manske, Betty Miles, Dorothy Parrish, Audrey
Rolson, Alma Sumner, and Marie Tromm. Virginia Grifhth was the capable manager.
