Starting with only sixteen members in l945, the Student Council has grown with the school population. Today, there are sixty-eight representatives and alter- nates from thirty-three homerooms. The council and the executive committee meet on alternate weeks. There are nine standing STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS Kay Rugen, Secretary, Don Farmer, President, Bob Flesch, Vice- President, Anita Riggs, Treasurer. committees with over one hundred members. Committee membership is open to the entire stu- dent body but every representative is required to be on a committee. Most of the work is done by the following committees and their chairmen: Education, Sharon Ploudre, Election, Fred Krieger, Ethics, Bob Flesch, Civil Defense, Dave Crocker, Publicity, Joan Burgess, Public Relations, Harry Barden, Social, Sweet Long, Service, Carol Wil- liams, and Assemblies, Roger Allen. Officers are: President, Don Farmer, Vice-President, Bob Flesch, Secretary, Kay Rugen, and Treasurer, Anita Riggs. It is the belief of the Student Council sponsors that the organization serves a distinctive purpose in a democracy. Since one of the most important obiectives of the high school is training for demo- cratic living, it is felt that the students should be given as many opportunities as possible to parti- cipate in the democratic processes. This does not mean that the administration turns over the man- agement of the school to a group of students. It does mean, however, that authority is dele- gated to the extent that student responsibility is made evident. The sponsors of this year's student council were Miss Smith and Miss Jerzewiak, who have been working with the students for the better- ment of Ferguson High School. M14- ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE The Assembly Committee, with Roger Allen as chairman, was de- termined to improve the assembly programs.

McPhail, our English exchange teach- er and former sponsor of an American Cheering Squad at the Olympic Games succeeded Miss Regina Jerzewiak as sponsor of the Pep Club this year. At the first assembly he appealed to the boys to support the club. On the next school day three enrolled, and others, including members of all the football teams, soon followed-a sonor- ous accession at the varsity matches which fol- lowed. At the usual November dance the theme of "Lullaby in Birdland" owed much of its success to the vivid conception and hard work of Mary Ellen Hatcher and her decorations committee, but an innovation was the Homecoming, held for the first time in several years, at which the team led cheers. At a further assembly on "Sportsmanship," which Mr. McPhail and Bob Flesch addressed in December to open the basketball and wrestling seasons, the cheerleaders again appeared in the uniforms which have been generally voted the brightest on view this year. Especially notable has been the help in select- ing and coaching the Junior High team and their presence at the Sophomore basketball matches, including one on a Saturday afternoon when other attractions were doubtless calling them. On some occasions they have had to divide to support games at the same time in different places. Miss Mathias and Mr. Hoemann have re- corded their appreciation of these efforts which have made the year specially memorable.

Wrestling A This has been one of the best years for our Wrestling team as far as season records and State Tournament results go. This is the first time the wrestling team has won a trophy, although they had previously taken second place in state while Mr. McCollum was coach. This year's team consisted of 34 boys, 9 who were returning lettermen. The season's record was 8 won, 2 tied, and 3 lost. The most interesting match was our home match with Ritenour. The meet was not decided until the last match. Unfortunately Ferguson lost by l point. This year Ferguson placed second in the Mis- souri State High School Wrestling Tournament, close behind Ritenour who has won the tourna- ment for the past 9 years. Ferguson has improved its place in the Tourna- ment every year since Mr. Chapman has been the coach. The boys who placed for Ferguson in the tournament were Sonny Knibb, who took first place in the 133 lb. class, Ben Bahora, Don Klug, and .lirn Heffington who took second place in their respective weight classes, Paul Kilmer who took third place, and Tom Burke and Jerry lsenberg who took fourth. The team captains were Don Klug, a four year letterman, and Larry Dennison. Next year Fergu- son will return 16 lettermen, 7 more than re- turned this year. Their goal for next year is the State Championship. Coach Chapman and our Wrestling team should be commended for their good work and excel- lent sportsmanship throughout the wrestling sea- son. We are looking forward to another oood wrestling season.

The varsity basketball team, who began their season with five consecutive wins, closed their season with an overall record of ll victories and l3 defeats. The team consisted of five returning varsity players, eight members of last year's "B" team, and one transfer student. This was Coach Tschannen's 5th year as coach of the varsity team. Everyone is very proud of the 2 third place trophies won in the Suburban League Tourna- ment and the State Regional. aww W The team played good ball throughout the season and showed signs of being a much better club than their record indicated. Gary Thompson was high scorer while Howard Hamlin was our leading defensive player. Good players and able substitutes filled out the team. The team showed good clean sportsmanship throughout the season and were a credit to our school. We look forward to an excellent season next year with the strength added by our "B" team.

The CREST staff started its sales campaign late in November with an assembly to promote the sale and to enlighten the students as to the con- tents and prices of the CREST. This year each member of the staff took orders for the CREST, Crest CREST STAFF Back Row: Ron Frede, Bev Behle, Bill Neel. Fourth Row: Pat Puskar, Norma Reith, Carol Smith.

Ray Miller succeeded in outselling the members and thereby received his CREST free of cost. So that the price of the CREST was kept at a minimum, members of The staff raised money for the publication of the book by selling refresh- ments at thelfootball games, and by sponsoring the sales ofthe individual pictures, and by spon- soring the CREST Coronation, which was one of the social highlights of The school year. -52- Besides learning the fundamental principles of iournalism, the SCOOP staff also did an ex- cellent iob of issuing a bi-monthly news publi- cation. The SCOOP is a member of the National Scholastic Press Association and the Missouri Interscholastic Press Association. The platform of the SCOOP carries both of these insignias. Members of the SCOOP staff met sixth hour everyday and were usually found working fev- COOP erishly after school on the days before the SCOOP was scheduled to be issued. One of the main attractions to the SCOOP was mimeographed pictures which were featured by means of the photo-stenciling process. With Mr. Koch as sponsor and Don Farmer as editor, the SCOOP staff did an excellent iob of providing SCOOP readers with interesting items such as Social Side, Barden's Beat, Mystery Student, edi- torials, sports write-ups, and various types of fic- tion.

It was composed of the Library Staff and Student Council Alternates, who made collections at school and in their neighborhoods for toys to be turned over to the Marines for repair. These toys were then given to underprivi- leged children for Christmas. LIBRARY ASSISTANTS A library assistant's day may begin before school officially opens when one comes in to put out newspapers, check over- night reserves, and prepare the library for the day's rush. Dur- ing each hour of the day, there are at least two students work- ing in the library so that one may assume full responsibility if it is necessary for the other to study. The assistants' duties vary from filing, typing, checking over-due books, collecting book fines, run- ning errands or helping other students find desired material. OFFICE ASSISTANTS Mrs. Rippstein and Mrs. Plav- nick were freed from tedious, routine office tasks for more complex ones by the office as- sistants who volunteered their time and services. These girls helped record daily attendance, took announcements to the class rooms, answered the telephone, wrote out excuses, and did in- numerable other small iobs. ...QS- F. T. A.
