feeta Glub LOCAL OFFICERS David Thornton. President Evelyn Taylor Smith. Vice President Mary Agnes Plybon. Secretary Charles Whitmore. Treasurer In October, 1932, the first charter of the National Beta Club was registered with the State of Kentucky. In the fall of 1933, Dr. John W. Harris, of Spartanburg, became secretary-treasurer of the organi¬ zation and installed several chapters in Spartanburg County, S. C. By the close of the 1933-34 session there were nine clubs with a mem¬ bership of 89. In August, 1936, the original charter was terminated and the organization rechartered under the laws of South Carolina. Under the leadership of Dr. Harris, the work has broadened from year to year. At the close of the 1940-41 session there are chapters in fourteen states with a total membership of eight thousand. The primary purposes of the Beta Club are: The cultivation of scholarship and fellowship among students; the encouraging of high standards of morality and conduct, and the instilling of such ideals of loyalty, integrity and courage as will develop worthy leadership. The honor of membership is awarded only to those students whose records in their respective classes have come up to specific standards. Since September, 1936, ten groups of students have been installed as members of the Andrew Lewis Beta Club. These groups give a total membership of one hundred and fifty. Of that number twenty-three will graduate in June, 1941, and twenty-one will remain in Andrew Lewis to carry on the Beta Club work next session. Of the one hundred and fifty, sixty-one have attended college or university. Five have taken commercial courses. Five are trained nurses. One is a technician. Seven are married. The rest have gone directly from high school into the various occupations in the community. Their positions include stenographers, tellers, journalists, electricians, heads of departments, musicians, government employees, pharmacists, cashiers. Two have remained in the home, where they are indispensable members of their own households. A study of this record renews our faith in Beta Club ideals. We believe the organization is meeting a long-felt need when it recognizes and persistently strives to reward excellence of achievement and character in our young people. Carrie M.

Ite Mosutert, This year has brought a new enterprise to Andrew Lewis—that of student patrol of the halls to regulate “traffic” in the crowded corridors. It is doing much to relieve congestion and confusion during the lunch periods. The monitors are selected by their home rooms, each senior room choosing four, each junior room, three, each sophomore room, two, and each freshman room, one. Serving for two con¬ secutive weeks, senior monitors are on duty with the freshmen and junior monitors with the sophomores, in order that the younger members can profit from their experience and so that each post can have a pupil on duty at all times. To be eligible for selection from one’s home room, it is necessary to maintain a passing average. And not only is the scholastic standard considered, but also the character, disposition and will¬ ingness to serve of the individual. There are various duties assigned to those who serve in this system. First, they must keep order on the stairs. “Single file, please,” has become a familiar slogan to the entire student body. And this slogan has been one of the most important factors in making passage on the stairs one hundred per cent easier and swifter. Other duties include keeping the center of the halls clear for passage, asking those who wish to talk to move to one side, check¬ ing building passes to see that pupils who are in the halls have sufficient reason for being there, and giving information to both students and visitors. A monitor may be recognized by his attractive blue and white badge. The success of this system will depend not only on the monitors and teachers, but upon the support given by each member of the student body.
