OR reasons still unknown, this year saw an unusually lively interest and increase in participation in almost all branches of student government. School spirit, often lagging in past years, came to the fore many times in widely varying activities. In an assembly at the very beginning of the year, the student body was introduced to Field- ston's many extra-curricular activities. This sparked a highly successful year for most committees and clubs, with a sharp rise in lower form membership, showing promise for future extra-curricular leadership. Early in the year, a work day was held, and because of its success, the Work Program planned to make this an annual event. Perhaps the greatest mass show of school spirit occurred late in the fall when almost half the school rode out to Wloodmere to cheer our teams to a double victory. In the Student Council itself, the smoking problem was in the spotlight for a large part of the year. The final decision, reached after many stormy meetings and several equally thunderous editorials, was to move fifth and sixth form smoking from the dining room to the Rec. Room. The council also passed an important bill limiting succession among council representatives in the hrst four forms, in the hope of preparing a wider selection of students for eventual leadership. Midway in the year, Treasurer John Leubs- dorf, Fieldston's answer to Alexander Hamilton, devised a scheme by which the Council, without any effort and, of course, keeping entirely within the law, could pick up an ad- ditional 3180 per year. No Student Council would be complete without some sort of debate on the Rec Room. But it was the Administration, not the Council, that provided this year's fireworks. With the removal of the vending machines and the return to the buffet system, the Rec Room was left open for the student body to use as it saw fit. Since the Council was unable to come to a definite decision, it remains for the class of '60 to find a use for the room. But the Council did succeed in improving the recreational atmos- phere in the room by providing two new indestructible ping-pong tables, with racquets. Among other accomplishments, the Council prepared and reprinted the By-laws, and the Administration adopted a Council proposal to allow students to take part in administering student suspensions through a Student-Faculty Committee. Operating against a background of solid support and cooperation from students of all forms, the Council was able more easily to carry out its basic jobs, so that a construc- tive and enjoyable year was made possible. file
