Brackenridge Was represented in a number of Student Council Conventions this year. Frankie
Bea Woodward attended the Southern Association of Student Governors at Memphis, Tennessee. lack
Anderson, the president, Was the Councils delegate at the Denton, Texas, Convention for the Texas As-
sociation of Student Councils, March l2, 13, and l4. Discussion groups were held and attended by the
other delegates from Brackenridge. Some of the leading topics of discussion Were ill How the Student
Council can promote democratic living, Q25 Boy and girl problems, C35 Should grades be based entirely
on class Work, and C41 How the Student Council can raise money. Very interesting reports of those three
days were given later on in a meeting.
A picnic was held at Koehler Park, April 20, for the members and their dates which was a big suc-
cess. lt was the annual social affair on which photographs were taken by the officers and members for
the annual. All present had an enjoyable time.
At that time the executive committee was planning a dance but the plans were not completed in
time to announce the date for the dance. --Rosemary Lott.

Being duly rewarded and reminded by Miss Viola Moore that the Student Council members are
the representative body of Brackenridge, they did not rest on their laurels, but instead Continued their
work in earnest as the Student Council has done from year to year. ln other words, they are keeping
up the tradition of hard Work for the benefit of the student body and the honor of Brackenridge.
Many Christmas baskets were generouslyygiven for the needy in response to the drive sponsored
by the Student Council during the Yuletide season.
Instead of the annual "Hello Day" which was to bring about newer acquaintances, the Student
Council sponsored a "Know Your Neighbor Day" on which small paper airplanes with your name
typed on them were sold for a penny, and the money, amounting to 52660, was donated to the "Penny
a Plane" Fund.
Color Day was a gala occasion when all students Wore their purple and white buttons, ribbons,
and pom-poms right before the Thanksgiving Football game.
To help conserve material needed by our government, the Student Council started the project of
collecting waste paper. Hardly ever can one find a piece of paper in our waste baskets. This drive has
a many-fold benefit, as the proceeds have gone to a generous fund for the Red Cross, money for
fluorescent lights for dances in the gymnasium, for wood to make model airplanes to aid pupils in fly-

Those loyal members who attended
meetings make this year successful.
The Wa Kapa Club was founded twenty-two years ago by Miss Georgia Armstrong. It was origin-
ally called the Library Club but was later renamed Wa Kapa Club. Wa Kapa, in the Indian language
means friendship. This year the club with the able assistance of our sponsor, Miss Louise Allen, has
tried to keep the ideal of friendship alive and growing.
This year's activities started with the election of new members. The formal initiation was held in
October in the home of Betty Ann Lockhart.
Christmas each year brings around an event dear to the heart of every Wa Kapa member. Mid
fun and laughter we decorated a Christmas tree in the center hall. As we hung balls and stars and
tinsel, many of the students gathered to give the advice. Even Mr. Gary and Mr. Kay came to their
office doors when we consulted them. In the week that followed the amazing thing was that, although
crowds swirled gaily through the hall and about the tree, only a few ornaments were broken. Later we
carefully packed the decorations away until next year and turned our thoughts to other things-a
calendar with picnics and parties. As Miss Allen laughingly says, "Every time we get some money we
plan a party and eat up the treasury."
