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.

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
