This has been accom- plished through a system of committees. The following new committees have been formed this year: Radio, Good- Will, Flag Ritual, Pep Assembly, and Good Citizenship. Each of these committees works under the direction of a faculty mem- ber. This plan has brought the whole school into the council activi- ties. This, the fifth year of the Student Council in Elk City, has been the most successful one of its history. The spirit of the organization has permeated the entire school. At the district meeting in Anadarko, Bob Collins was elected president for the district in 1941-42. Mrs. Roy E. Gowdy, Elk City sponsor, was chosen district sponsor for the Thanks for the grand assemblies.

I believe that there is as much art in making a barren house into a glixtening, comfortable home as there is in painting H Plflure or In writing K: poem. I BELIEVE that there is dignity and beauty in service, that as a career for women, home-making offers greater opportunity for leisure, for growth of mind and spirit, for exercise of the body, than any other occupa- tion.
