MERICAN women have world-wide fame for their desire to govern themselves. Here at Allegheny the co-eds have set up an organi- zation dear to all their hearts. Sometimes their meetings become tiresome to attend-it being hard to leave the grill or bridge games on Friday after- noons. But woe would be unto him who tried to take them away! They enjoy this self government, this campus government far ahead of most col- leges and universities. This all-potent organization is known as the Associated Women Students. The girls have modeled their government after that of the United States. lt has three branches: the exec- utive, composed this year of president, Carrie Em- erson and vice-president, Emmy Jane Gould, legis- lative, senators from the states of first Front, sec- ond F ront, etc., and the judicial, Emmy Jane and all her black-clothed friends. At weekly informal meetings Carrie and her fellow workers formulate the policies of the student government. The friend- liness and work done here serve as a bond tying together the whole school. Not so pleasant is the work of Senior Court. There is no joy for these senior women in judging their fellow students but there is a satisfaction in knowing that here the decisions are made by undergraduate students, un- der uniform rules, and not by outside faculty rule. A. W. S. holds its annual elections in the spring. For days Brooks lobby is busy with co-eds hurried- ly scratching down the names of their choice. Then there are the exciting hours of waiting for the re- sults. Finally comes the installation and into every woman student's heart comes a new pride in the government of her school. 1 There is another aspect of student government which, though not so well-known as the A. W. S., is closely associated with the day-by-day living of the women students. It is the Activities Board WOMANDS SENATE 11:-z-1-s-rr A

We point with pride to the A. U. C. of 1943-44, with its president, Harry Conroy, Who, interested primarily in a continuation of fundamental campus life, in- stigated a reorganization and revitalization of campus activities-the Kaldron, debate, publica- tions, and the numerous clubs-in a planned pro- gram. A college calendar committee, composed of both student and faculty members, was appointed to co- ordinate all campus events, resulting in the best- planned campus activity program Allegheny had seen in a long time. The Allegheny Advertising Agency with Betsy Pfleeger as chairman Was set up as a central clear- ing house for campus advertising. Working in close co-o peration with the art department, the agency made posters for campus meetings, dances, parties, lectures, and drives and placed them at strategic spots on campus. Besides pulling activities out of the mire of War- time apathy, the A. U. C. carried out definite p1'0j- CCYS related to the war effort. The consolidated Re- lief Chest, a new organization this year, embodied in 0116 drive all the many drives for relief pr0jeCiS each year. All students and faculty members were solicited, resulting in the attainment of the goal of 32,000 Distribution of the money was made at the end of the year to the Red Cross, Scholarship Fund, World Student Service Fund, United Nations War Relief and the Meadville Community Chest. Aub- rey Crawford served as chairman of the comm lZCC. it- The War bond and stamps committee, headed by .loan Hexter the first semester, and Richard Coon the second semester, materially increased Alle- gheny's contribution to the War effort. A Week's concentrated drive was held in February, with Sergeant Joseph Sorce, ex-'44, returning to give it added impetus. Furthermore, in co-operation with the Allegheny Christian Council, the A. U. C. sponsored a series of forums on post-War problems in which both students and faculty members actively partici- pated. It is to his credit that Conroy achieved his goal of co-ordinating campus activities, both wartime and peacetime, and of giving them a fundamentally A sound basis upon which to operate. lt is to the credit of the entire A. U. C. that they carried through a constructive program which has culminated in real progress.
