YOUR UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN TODAY A DIVING EXHIBITION, rhythmic swimming, a comedy act, and a water ballet, performed to recorded music make up the program for the University of Wisconsin Dolphin Club's annual pageant, which will be given March 27, 28, and 29 in Lathrop Hall pool. The "Four Seasons" will be the theme of the 1947 pageant. Mary Broeksmit, Lake Forest, Ill., and Catherine Helgeby, Flint, Mich., are co-chairmen. Each season will be divided into three acts with the students in charge of each indi- vidual act doing their own organizing, directing, lighting, and costume planning. The Dolphin Club is one of the oldest girls' athletic organizations on the campus. It was organized in 1920 by a group of girls interested in swimming. Membership is decided by tryouts, held annually, and the club's main contribu- tion to the campus is the annual demonstration of water stunts and novelties. The Dolphins are sponsored by the Women's Athletic Association, which works closely with the department of physical education of the University in stimu- lating interest. and participation in physical education activities among coeds. Other activities sponsored by the WAA include hockey, badminton, basketball, bowling, dance, tennis, hiking, and skiing clubs, tournaments, play days, sports days, and a physical education club, which is a professional organization. All Wisconsin women students are required to take two years of physical education. Every coed is required to participate in an individual sport, a team sport, an aquatic sport, and in some form of dancing, besides being enrolled in a fundamentals class for at least one season. Now that Prof. Blanche M. Trilling, '17, has retired from her long-standing position as head of the division of physical education for women, she has been succeeded by Dr. Marie L. Carns, '15. Eight other Wisconsin alumnae are on the department staff. They include: Prof. Margaret N. H'Doubler, '10; Associate Professors Gladys Bassett, MA'30, Katherine Cronin. '14, Ruth Glassow, '16, and Margaret Meyer, PhD'43; and Instructors Frances Cumbee, MS'41, Mrs. Cecelia Maas, '40, and Mrs. Lydia Shafer, '26. Subchairmen of the Dolphin Club pageant next month are Constance Fuller, Lexington, Mass.; Joan Chalmers, Carmel, N. Y.; Elizabeth Overby, Menasha, Wis.; Joan Carlson, Duluth, Minn. - Ruth Abrahamson, Green Bay, Wis.; Viola Whiffen, Sheboygan, Wis.; Ruth Marie Buck, Forest Hills, N. Y.; Ina Hill, Washington, D. C.; Mary Broeksmit, Lake Forest, Ill..; Ada Whiting, Kirkwood, Mo.; Beatrice Brandon, West Allis, Wis.; Margery Turner, Chicago, Ill.; Beverly Bullen, Chicago, Ill.; Jean' Gebhardt, Racine, Wis.; Barbara Byrne, Omaha, Neb.; Susan Hackes, Pelham Manor, N.

THE DOLPHIN CLUB PERFORMS" IN, THE LATHROP HALL POOL 14 The "WHAT'S-THE-MATTER- WITH-HARRY" blizzard that swirled around Coach Harry Stuhidreher's head at the close of the 1946 football season has died away as quickly as it blew up. When the Badger gridders finished, eighth in the Big Nine, some anti- Stuhldreher sentiment cropped up. It found a focus on the campus where stu- dents daubed "Goodbye Harry" signs on building walls and the editor of the Daily Cardinal propounded five ques- tions for Harry to answer. He replied like this: 1. Was there any friction between members of the football team and coaching staff which affected the effi- ciency of the squad this season? Abso- lutely not. 2. Are race and color considered in choosing players for the Wisconsin football team? No. We give everyone a fair chance. 3. Why is the play of Wisconsin teams marked by poor demonstrations of fundamental blocking, pass defense, and tackling? Since other teams were better, Wisconsin played too hard and consequently made errors. 4. Why is it that Wisconsin football has not kept up with the changing style of play to employ more deception and greater variety of plays? Over a 13- year period Wisconsin has played inter- esting and deceptive football. 5. Do other universities in the West- ern Conference offer greater induce- ments to attract football players than it is possible to offer at Wisconsin? I do not-know if other schools are sub- sidizing, but here at Wisconsin we make the best of what we have. Harry Halloway, senior law student from Madison, put a damper on the whole controversy when he announced that the "Goodbye Harry" signs weren't intended for Coach Stuhldreher at all. "I'm graduating in January and those signs were put up by my friends in the Law School," Harry explained. "I'm sorry that the coach got mixed up in all this."
