LIBRARY COMMITTEE A fruitless search for members marked this year for the Library Committee. In vain did its public relations man, Rachel Blau 1 also the chairmanb, plaster printed ads around school. "There is only one Library Committee, ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTESV' a notice proclaimed. "And only one mem- ber," added a Fieldston humorist. Yet, while exchanging the popular mob scene for a more modest type of meeting, this commit- tee of four effectively assisted Mr. Mann, its advisor, in the choice of new library books. Q 7 -ie- if X f"""" fs .idltwwl INTERNAL ARRANGEMENTS COMMITTEE If the fog of our Monday morning-itis is oft'times dispelled by the stirring words of a prominent speaker or by a film whose innate fascination compensates for the sleep- producing darkness of the auditorium, it is through the noble efforts of this committee. The parade of Sheiks and Prime Ministers which has greeted us at assemblies was the result of committee meetings in which the mirth produced by the antics of the chaii- men, Nat Kwit and Toni Halpern, was no less stimulating than were the assemblies planned. INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE From the ambitious title of this group, one might gather that among the varied tasks of the Field- ston student government is one of attending to the need of foreign na- tions. On the contrary, the students, recognizing their own needs to learn in more detail about the rest of the world, have found here the opportunity. Choosing Israel as a pilot project, the committee, chaired by Ginny Galton and Lynn Good- win, became experts on the coun- try's problems. An informal talk with an Israeli student added ro their understanding. x - 1 S .

SOCIAL COMMITTEE If Fieldston's students have ever needed encouragement to pur- sue their social arts, this committee has supplied the occasions for all to charm and be charmed. For dancers with vigor and endurance who didn't care to lindy, the Folk Dance was inaugurated. And for those anxious to forget midyears, there was a Winter Carnival. The chef d'oeuvre of these versatile planners was the elaborate Com- mencement Dance, held, if not in Madison Square Garden, at least in spacious Fieldston School. Hope Finney and Gail Karsh led the committee. -' 3, 5: I '92-M 'gif 0 fag nl 97? 5 I ' the ga tif? W .

Led by Millie Rapp and Steve Shapiro, the mem- bers of the Community Service Committee gave aid, both directly and financially, to agencies in the New York area and more lately to the entire country. Some planned ways to help the Indians of the West, while the Saturday morning Riverside teams ride herd on the West Side Indians here at home. CURRENT EVENTS CLUB Besides displaying cryptic notes on bul letin boards, the Current Events Club under took the vital task of deciding how certair countries should proceed with foreign af fairs. The fact that many world transaction: went contrary to the club's rulings only in fused a spark of suspense and vigorous de bate into meetings. Meanwhile, to enlighter those who read the news no further that the headlines, this club and its chairmen Ira Hammerman and Kord Lagemann, pro vided films and speakers for the entire school

The editors were backed by a strong bench, as the staff box reached a record length. Despite a rained-out issue when the press broke down, and a rise in yearly rates, the New: re- tained its strong following. Bill Mulfinger took Mr. Spiegal's place and built up a high slugging aver- age with the female fans, while Mr. Riegert remained the mentor and mainstay of the publication. The editorial problem blazed over the smoking problem, and it was even suggested that a mini- ature dining room be set up for smoking in the Newt room, but Mr. Brown's sobering influence kept the Newt "O. K. S. B." WORK PROGRAM A wrapperless Rec Room, a leafless quadrangle, an unblem- ished blackboard, an immaculately alligned 821-all these sights on Freidenberg and Mel Mungin, has to the Work Program. A rapidly growing institution, the Work Pro- gram, chaired this year by Bob Freidenberg and Mel Mungin, has been increasingly successful in san- itizing Fieldston. Quadrangle ground is no longer pollutedg quad- rangle air is another matter. Al- though the principle of breath-and- nose holding has been found an ef- fective measure against smoke, the evasion of soggy post-school guided missiles is not yet a science . . . but rag-ducking will come. In a more serious vein, the Work Program has accomplished much that is con- structive, and the well directed money made through students' work has been well-earned.
