Student Council The Student Council of the Alton High School was organized in March, 1938, with the aid of several faculty members and representatives of the clubs of the school. Miss Paul was chosen as faculty advisor. The acting chairman of the meeting was Gladys Watkins. jane Kane was appointed secretary. 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, Lois Watkins. 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' resentatives were elected from the home rooms. The reason for the change was to make it possible for the representatives to report more readily to the groups which they represented, and to make 0 O it possible for all representatives to be present. Officers for the year, March, 1939, to March, 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 promise. OFFICERS Bill Ash ...................,.....,.. President Lois Watkins ............ .... V icefPresident Anita Faye Cartwright ...............
