IiWiss Ina M. Barding Directs
Athletics for 1,500
Women Clerks.
Athletic directors of colleges
and high schools are continually
whimpering about the gigantic
task of coaching representative
teams in all branches of sports,
as many are compelled to also
direct athletic activities for their
student bodies. Coaching athletic
teams and directing athletic ac
tivities are separate and distinct,
bnt many coaches are compelled
to do both. The scholastic and
coUegiate ranks locally can be
| *-uen as a good example, and
' Jishington can boast of some of
^?.c best in the country.
In most cases where the student
jdies run into the four columns
figures these directors of
j pieties coach one or two sports,
? nile they are given assistants
10 are paid good salaries for
ecializing this or that depart
*nt of athletic, training.
C'Meket f?r Varsity.
Vojlowing this plan the burden of
ftiversal training so highly endorsed
by Secreta^r of War Newton D. Baker
and other government officials is lift
ed off the shoulders of the hired
coach, so that he may pound the finer
points of the ?ame into tH% dense
brain of th? athleticly built candi
dates of the representative team, with
esult that the varsity, as the repre
entative eleven, nine, quint or cinder
.th tiaras are better known, is
| ;*ven the greatest attention. The
'^akling student of under weight and
vlder ability of making these first
?*<fc-ing teams, is casted aside and al
lowed to mix into the driftwood of
healthy cheering section.
But right here in the Capital, under
tlttr guiding hand of our Iwn Uncle
Sim. there is one athletic director
?Jd coach who is undertaking a
jgantic task of directing and
* eaching l.iiOO. Yen. and 1,300 athlet
I Milly inclined girls at that. This fair
| *? thus las tic devotee of the athletic
Id is no other than Miss Ina Mil
dred Barding. of Chicago. 111., late of
the Northwestern University,
t Enthusiastic Coach.
Never is there a whimper from Miss
Barding. She is over-enthusiastic
about her work. She goes into it
with the pep and vim that would put
many of our college coaches to shame.
She dreams of, and plans her activi
ties during spare moments if such a
thing as spare moments are possible.
Making hay while the sun shines if*
a leading motto of her vocabulary of
action as she punches through her
irh such rapidity that her
new plans \v? . apiuux mat ner
own little 1.500 student body become
ardent and enthusiastic slaves.
Something new every minute and
action every second is another rea
son why the girls of the War RisK
Insurance Bureau are crazy about
?"war work" and judged in the F
street and Connecticut avenue parades
us the best looking of Uncle Sammy's
fair clerks. To their little athletic di
rector and coach goes the credit of
lifting the grind of monotonous of
fice work. /
An Athletic Girl.
Miss Barding is an ideal alhletio
girl, having medals and trophies for
athletic competitions. In 1917 Miss
Carding won the all-around cham
pionship at Northwestern University
in competition with more than 200
^;irls. while at basketball and hockey
?Hhe was looked upon as without an
equal. Miss Brading. although very
modest and unassuming in speaking
oT her own endeavors, is what sport
fans would term a "bug" when she
finds time to talk of athletics and
sports or anything pertaining to this
little world of physical training.
Although she loves to tell of the
powers of various girl athletes who
now make up her representative
.earns she always insists on her pet
hobby of universal training. She re- .
fuses to take any of the credit of
building up the athletic training which !
now a daily feature for the girls I
I ->f the War Risk Bureau. She gives
m oL Max Wainor, the athletic director
I f the bureau, credit for all activities
r .nd claims. If it was not for his un
' iring efforts War Risk would not
have had its championship teams and
could not even hope for the greater
things which will result from uni
versal training.
Coarhr* All 9perth.
Miss Barding entered the War Risk
Bureau back in 19i7 when so many
of the patriotic women of this country
swamped this city to till the places of
the men who went into the big trouble
^cross the pond. Just four months ago
"athletic activities were pieced upon
a sound basis in the Insurance Bu
reau and Miss Harding was picked
4lo lead the way among the feminine
contingent which even now greatly
exceed the men workers.
Every branch of sport which is par
ticipated in by the men is also played
by the girls. Basket-ball, gymnastics,
bowling and indoor track at present
hoMs the limelight, but teams have
been organised for baseball, not the
indoor fame, but the real national
pasttne. hockey, swimming, soccer
n??d volley bell which will be started
as soon as the weather allows out- j
uwoi play.
???< Basketball Tram.
The basket-ball league which was
organized a few weeks ago now con
sists of fifteen teams, each with
their own name. colors and yell. The
lnterteague games, which is the fea
ture of the girls' basket-ball in this
city, has aroused much interest and
complimentary comment The gyms
of Kpiphany Church. Wilson Normal
School and Central High School are
used for both games and practice.
^ representative team has been
chosen, which has already won the
game in competition with the best
teams in this section. Some real
stars of the court rame have been
unearthed by Miss Rardings.%
Miss Regiaa Ryan is an all-around
athlete and Is prominent in both the

floor game and baseball. Miss Ryan
is a product of Cazenovia Seminary,
of New York, where she won the
laurels of being the best all-around !
ahtlete ever turned out by this
school. After three years of star- j
ing in athletes at Cozenovia, Miss'
Ryan joined the United Women's
Catholic Association of New York
City, where she again starred in
both basket-ball and baseball, win
ning the A. A. U. lovinsr cup (or al
around athletic competition at the
interborough tournament.
A Track Athlete.
She was affiliated with the Treas
ury team, which won the champion
ship of the inter-departmental meet
last summer, and played and helped]
coach the War Camp Community.)
Service baseball team and the Arl
ington hockey team. Although short
of stature, she displays great s peed, j
which is the secret of her success j
In all athletics.
Anna Geiman and Stella Webb, i
who play forward positions with the j
representative basket-ball tearr*
are| former hljrh school girls who J
learned athletics while at prep |
school. Miss Gieman is a Verglnia
girl, having attended ~ the Lincoln
High School of Lincoln. V-a., in 1917
and 1918, while Miss Webb claims
little old Bristol, of little Rhode
Inland, as her native land. Misses
Elizabeth Chickering and Ruby
Ld?t are forwards of equal ability,
while they both are prominent In
other branches of sport activities.
Ijiss Chickering grained ^uite a r?p|
utation for herself while attending
the New Hampshire Cotle^e at Dur
ham, N. C.. while Mia* LUt WQa her
letter down In the "show me" State
while attending: the Southern Teach
ers' College.
Some Center.
Miss Ruth Lawson, who is con
sidered by expert coaches as the best j
jumping center who has ever played
here, is from Sheboygan. Mich. She
is a product of the Michigan State
Normal School where she was rat^d
as the best all-around athlete in the
State during 1915 and 1916. Missi
Francis Cooper, from that Southern
State whose men boast of being the
best judges of thoroughbred horses, j
mint-juleps and fair women, is the1
roving center of the representative
basket-ball team. Her all-around floor
work in the recent games played
helped a great deal toward the easy
Misses Lucille Rodgers and Dottle
Malloy are a combination of guards
that are hard to beat. ^Miss Rodgers'
home is Barnesville, Ohio, the State
that turns out real basket-ball play
ers. Little Miss Malloy is Washing
ton's own. She is strong, sturdy and
fast. She will be remembered as the
wee mite of an athlete who won the
bj^Il tossing contest at the Indepart
mental games at the Central Stadium
when she heaved the horsehide atmost
double the distance of her nearest
competitor. Besides being a basket
ball star Miss Malloy ranks among
the. best all-around athletes In the
Bureau. Miss Yelton at side center.
Misses Burke, Bolin and Gully, who
make up the , balance of the squad
of the representative team, are play
ers of exceptional ability.
Over four hundred fftrls are mem
b?r? of Uu TV*r Blak Bowllof
League. The interleague eames
ha^ve already started on the Arcade
runway* and Miss Harding will
shortly select a representative team
for games with local girls clubs.
Misses Long:, Rest at.d Hand ley are
among the best bowlers In the Bu
reau. |
Swimming is another sport that
appeals to the War Risk girls. Many
'are taking instructions in diving,
others are working on speed events
while the long distance gamo has
its followers. War Risk will be
represented in the various swimming
] meets during the spring and sum
mer. The representative teaui which
j is at present made up of Misses
' Helen Crone, Dorothy Pasch, Maude
|Viehman, Christine Stelnmetz and
[Lowolla Lewis are practicing every
night at the Y. W. C. A. tank.

As Miss Carding: put it, "Athletics
for women in the War Risk Bureau
have only had a four months*
growth, but watch us. We are go
ing over the top."
And as a compliment to Miss
| Barding, one of the local college
! coaches remarked. "War Risk is
j pretty lucky in having a coach with
j the ability of Miss Barding. She
! is a finished athletic tutor and
