Alpha Xi Delta girls got coaching in the forward pass from willing male.

Kicks and catches thrilled crowd. At left, Kay Sears launches punt. Above, Halfback Joan Stricker of the Pi Beta Phis, who played on both offensive and defensive platoons, makes catch. Alert Alpha Xi Delta defenders stopped her a moment later. Game was played under touch-football rules.

Correct stance for line play was taught to Marge Sisk, an offensive tackle for Alpha Xi Delta, by persevering volunteer.

For eight years the football season's first Bowl game has been the Powder Bowl contest between girl teams of Ohio University at Athens. This year's game was distinguished by a touchdown, the first scored since 1951, which gave victory to Alpha Xi Delta, 7-0, over Pi Beta Phi. Most games have ended in ties, but this year Right Halfback Barb Watson won with a stirring 32-yard sweep around right end.

Cheeks smooched with charcoal to cut glare, Linda Callahan, Pi Beta Phi defensive tackle, followed game grimly.

Officials started the game with full, stiff-necked dignity, but toward the end decorum began to seem out of place.
