President Mayme Scott Vice-President Eleanor Pease Secretary Gadys Wheeler, First Semester Secretary Emma Riggs Second Semester Treasurer Ethel Bear Hannah Johnston Mary McCreery Rhoda Haynes May Weir, First Semester Faith Skinner, Second Semester Mabel Patten, Second Semester Perhaps no one thing is so indicative of the growth of Colorado College as the establishment of Student Government among the young women on the campus. Finding the old system inadequate, they requested of the faculty, to be granted a charter allowing them to govern their life under officers elected from their own number. In May, 1 906, this charter was given. An Executive Board, consisting of a President elected from the incoming Senior class, one represenative from each of the four classes, and one from each hall, was chosen at once. During the summer a constitution was drawn up. In September, the Executive Board started on the formation of the rules by which the new association should be governed. These rules were based on those by which the girls ' life had before been regulated. One great difference, besides the added freedom which naturally came, was the gradation in privileges according to classes. The Freshmen have fewest privileges both in the amount of social life and the freedom with which they may exercise it. They have no representative on the executive board until the second semester when they elect one member to meet with the board but to have no vote. Sophomore year brings more liberty. In the Senior and Junior years, the girls, having gained a better understanding of the right proportion of things in college life, may enjoy the greatest freedom possible in such an organization. The faithful, careful and successful work of the first board is deserving of much praise. Of course the government is yet far from perfect. But marked improvement in scholarship, thoughtfulness, unity, and good spirit is already noticeable. The aim of Student Government is first, to insure a happy and well regulated college life; second, to train each young woman in the art of governing herself and others. All are taking an active interest in the association and a few years more will undoubtedly see the present ideals fulfilled. 148
