meeting was Gladys Watkins. jane Kane was
On March 21, 1938, the first meeting of the
temporary Student Council was held. First officers
were: Gladys Watkins, chairman, and Jane Kane,
secretary. On March 25, Eileen Ash succeeded
Jane Kane as secretary. The membership of the
temporary Council was made up of representatives
elected from the counsellor groups. The meetings
occured at irregular intervals at 3:35 on school days.
At the first allfschool Election in October, 1938,
officers elected for the year, October, 1938, to
March, 1939, from nominations made by the 3f1
and 3f2 classes were: president, Bill Drake, vice'
president, Harold Patterson, and from the student
council were: secretary, Eileen Ash, and treasurer,
On February 5, 1939, for the first time, the
council met in the auditorium on Friday during
the home room period. Instead of being elected
from counsellor groups, from this date the rep'

the groups which they represented, and to make
it possible for all representatives to be present.

1940, were: president, Betty Ash, vicefpresident,
jim Stallings, secretary, first semester, Bette Hart,
second semester, Audrey Bernard.
The aims of the Student Council are expressed
in the pledge taken by its members:
I will strive for better government ideals and
for the uplift of the association and school,
both alone and with others. I will obey and
respect the laws and do my best to incite a like
obedience and respect in others. I will strive
to quicken the sense of responsibility among
the students at large, so that we may transmit
our student government inheritance, not less
and worse, but greater and more beautiful
than it was transmitted to us. And this I
