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." 7fze Wa KW em Page 110

Kizer Sills 7fLe Slacfenl' enum: ' ing, for material to build a small room to store excessive paper, and money to sponsor the Defense Stamp Drive. None of these expenditures have been wasteful but all proved to be Worthwhile in benefiting the school and the students therein. . 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. M An bg T ..

7fze Wa KW em In Ianuary a luncheon was given at the Rio Vista Restaurant. At this luncheon the officers of the fall term relinquished their offices to the officers elected for the spring term. This was followed by a game party in our school cafeteria on February 20, which we gave to be- come acquainted with the prospective members. In an impressive and beautiful ceremony seventeen new members were initiated into the club on March 9 in the home of Rose Margaret I-Iolekamp. As they took the pledge, each new member was presented with a lovely corsage. One of the highlights of the year was the picnic given in April for the members and their dates and friends at Koehler Park. Bicycling, chatting, dancing, and boat riding climaxed by a sdmptuous feast ended a day which will long be remembered by the members of the Wa Kapa Club. In May the farewell banquet honoring the seniors was given. This is always an occasion enjoyed by all, yet with an overtone of sadness as we bid good-bye to our friends with Whom we have spent so many pleasant hours. -Betty Ann Lockhart, Ieannette Kizer and Roberta Pugh.
