Student ounci We are living through one of the most crucial periods in historyg we, American youth, play the leading roles in this most exciting of dramas. The first act was written long ago-'some say in 1918 at Versaiuesg the second act is now heing enacted on the stage, hut the third act is up to us. Yve must write it and act it outg the whole world is our audience. it is not with starry- eyed idealism or gloomy pessimism that we shalt write the futureg therefore we win not face the disiuusionment and hopelessness of the generation that grew up after the last war. VV e know the kind of world we want for our- selves and our children, and we are aware that human limitations and hasic needs must govern the success of any post-war plan. To huitd a democratic civilization, certain fundamentals must he lcept in mind. Some of these have heen taught us in our school lite and studies: respect for the ideas and cultures of our fellow men, an uncompromising reverence for the truth, intitiative and the courage and responsihiiity with which to hack it up, and cooperation! so essential in any hrotherhood of nations. 43

Social Committee has arranged quite a few games with other private schools this year. The Student Council supervises au cfuhs and committees and has heen doing a grand joh in making the wheels of Bentley run more smoothly." Having finished my speech I found my new friend dozing, so the rest of the students quietly left in order not to awake her and arrived in their afternoon class on time. as as er - The next day I found the New Student in assemhfy watching the square dancers Hswing their partnersf' Vxfe heard a crash., My friend raised her eyehrow inquiringfy and I explained that Hanother record just hrokef, Nothing unusual to that. . We slowly climhed the steps to the fourth Hoor. From the right came the sound of someone playing the Mexico.n Hat Danceg from the left we heard a hahhle of nasal voices. Since the fatter sounded more mysterious we entered to find Miss Weingold and other memhers of the French Cfuh talking half in French and half in English ahout the puppet show they were going to give for assemhly. Since our New Student had taken Spanish hefore, she wanted to see what went on in the Spanish Ciuh. Qn entering we were almost trampled hy two Latin dancers who looked suspiciously North American. OFF in one corner a few students were reading their scripts for the play they were preparing for assemhlyg in another corner Senora Rivera was telling a few girls ahout her adventures in Puerto Rico. We puffed up two chairs and listened to her for the rest of the period. - or :ic or Thursday I met my friend down in assemhly again, hut apparently nothing was doing there 3 so we went up immediately. Mrs. Kaufmann was herding everyhody' into her favorite cfuh, the Gfee Cfuh. When the girls quieted down, Miss Ferguson, expert at the keys, asked us what song we'd likeg and we soon were singing high and low. With regret we left, hut, after au, I didn't want our New Student to miss one of our most interesting cfuhs. As we walked in, Mrs. Masters was just explaining to one of the trouhfed pupils, "Men are very selfish and very conservative. , , ' That statement got us rather interested and we sat down, talked to Mrs. Masters ahout the relations of girl to girl, girl to hoy, hoy to hoy, and hoy to girl extensively and were otherwise advised ahout how to get along with other people.. In the middleof this enlightening conversation, the afternoon class came in, and quickly looking over our notes once more, we hurried up to our American history class-'to take a test. 42
