The Girls' Athletics:"Girls' Sports Emphasize the Fun in Keeping Trim." The Intramural sports program offered a variety of activities from fall through spring, designed to suit every girl's taste. Team sports represented were hockey, volleyball, basketball, and softball. Tennis, archery, tumbling and golfing were favorite individual activities. Co-recreation featured bowling, fencing, and badminton. Tournaments and playdays provided competition and fun for all. Season's in Dance', an original program of interpretive modern dancing, climaxed the season's activities for Orchesis. Appropriate choreography and costumes depicted the mood. With membership open to anyone interested, Orchesis provides an opportunity for self-expression and originality through the medium of movement.
