ECAUSE ping-pong is such an excellent pastime, because a game can be sandwiched
in between class periods or during a short period of spare time, the game gets quite
a bit of attention during the indoor season. Since the game is played over such a long
period of time, it was decided to run a ladder tournament for a period of several weeks.
In such a tournament no one is even eliminatedg players can challenge each other as
long as the tournament lasts.
Twenty-one girls entered the tournament, and of these twenty-one, two were
awarded medals of recognition. The championship medal was awarded to Alma Sumnerg
the runner-up medal was won by Lois Gregerson. Anna Mae Gilham and Margaret
Monteith placed third and fourth respectively.
ASUNNY day, a tennis court, and thee on the opposite side of the net-what a perfect
appeal to two racqueteers, or four, if it's not interrupting anything.
The lazy spring days that tempt the student often draw her to such a setting. This
year the tennis singles tourney claimed many women, all in quest of the championship.
Only one, however, can be the lucky medalist.
Of the veteran players those expected to make a bid for the title are: Geneva Bleisner,
a promising player from Baldwing Anna Mae McDowell, a sophomore from Hudsong and
Eunice Manske, last year's champion from Wabeno.
To stimulate interest and to encourage the freshmen and sophomores to more play,
a doubles tourney was arranged in which each experienced player took as her partner
an inexperienced player. Since tennis instruction is being offered in the spring physical
education classes this tournament allowed the girls to test their tennis skills under the
pressure of real matches. In this way the foundation is being laid for more and better

ACROWD of forty enthusiastic would-be cagers turned out
for the first few practice sessions of the season in basket-
ball. After devoting a preliminary period to polishing up skills
and getting acquainted with rules, four teams were lined up for
tournament play. They were the Long Shots, captained by Ber-
nice Lovell, the Pot Shots by Marion Saul, the Short Shots by
Vonnie Fellrath, and the Hot Shots by Phyllis Case.
In the round-robin tournament that followed the Hot Shots
started out by living up to their name, defeating the other three
teams in successive games to assume the lead in the tourney.
After that, disaster overtook them, and they dropped the next
seven games in a row to sink to last place in the standings.
Meanwhile the other three teams put on a hotly contested
race for the lead. At one time, the Long Shots, Short Shots, and
Pot Shots were tied for the lead, but the last week of play saw
the Pot Shots, captained by Marion Saul, take the championship
by winning seven games and losing three. The Long Shots and
Short Shots, led by Bernice Lovell and Vonnie Fellrath, tied for
second by winning five and losing five.
Marie Tromm acted as manager for the season. She, along
with the four captains, selected an honor team from among the
best players. It was co osed of Leona Rhodey, nice Man e

BASEBALL affords the first opportunity for outdoor play after the long winter indoors. Players are a bit rusty
and creaky in the joints, but it isn't long before the "old rhythm" returns and the great American game
assumes the polished look. Every now and then the polish dulls a little when an "attack of errors" seizes the "fair
femmes" of the diamond, but all this only adds to the fun and hilarity.
Teams captained by Beth Feldman and Audrey Rolson, two of the outstanding freshmen players, are playing a
Seven game tournament, Since the Meletean goes to press before the tourney is completed, the results cannot be
ACTIVITIES that are purely individualistic in nature and engaged in merely for the recreation they afford are
swimming, badminton, and archery. No tournaments or contests were run off in these activities, but they did
receive much attention from individuals.
Miss Branstad received approximately twenty-live requests for instruction periods in archery to be held on
Mondays and Wednesdays after school. After a short time spent in learning a few fundamentals, the archers go out
on their own. The more time spent shooting, of course, the greater becomes one's accuracy and skill.
Badminton, too, was purely an individual concern as far as school activities in it were concerned. Because of
the expense entailed in playing and because of the difliculty in securing available gymnasium space activity was
shown only by the real enthusiasts of the sport. It is to be regretted that conditions are not so favorable for this
game, because River Falls in the past few years has had one of the outstanding badminton groups in the state.
However, some River Falls students and faculty did enter two of the Minnesota tournaments. Early in January
Dr. Owens and Eunice Manske won second place in the Northwest Invitational Tournament held at the Minneapolis
Y. M. C. A. In the Minnesota State Badminton Tournament held at the St. Paul Athletic Club in February Allan
Peterson and Mrs. Henry Owens won first place in Class B mixed doubles, Eunice Manske and Dr. Owens won
second place in Class A mixed doubles. Mr. Setterquist and Allan Peterson were leading in the championship match
in Class B men's doubles, when Mr. Setterquist pulled a muscle in his leg, and the match had to be defaulted.
