In the fall a reception was given in the gymnasium to all new women students. The purpose, activities, and membership of the Association were explained to the women. Late in the fall the Chicago Night for Chicago Women dinner was given, after which the women went en masse to the Minnesota mass meeting. As usual, the Association has supported the organized teams and tried to increase the interest in the championship games between the colleges. Within the past year swimming has been put on an equal basis with the three major sports, --hockey, basketball, and baseball. The new features which have been introduced during the year by the W. A. A. are the organization of scheduled cross-country walks, an outdoor pageant to be given every spring quarter, and a new basis of membership. According to this new basis, every woman must earn one hundred points to be eligible for membership. The points may be earned by participation in the organized sports, by excellence in regular gymnastic work, by holding executive positions, and by taking part in the biennial play or in the annual pageant. In order to retain active membership, the members must earn a minimum of fifty points the second year, and twenty-five points the third and fourth years. As yet it is too soon to predict the success of this system of membership, but its enthusiastic reception seems to insure its satisfaction.
