"The aims of the National Thespian Society are twofold: first to establish and promote standards of excellence in all phases of dramatic arts; second, to create an active and intelligent interest in drama among students.” So states the induction ceremonies of Thespian Troupe 2105 as members arc brought into the organization.
I;ach person fulfills his role in Thespians by actively participating in a play either on stage or as a member of the stage crew.
During the year Thespians presented two one-act plays to the student body, "Masque of the Red Death” and "He Isn’t Dead Yet,” which were well accepted by both the faculty and student body. It is hoped that this will become an annual event.

Harlem's Student G uncil represented the entire student body, forming a democratic group that worked to improve our school for students and faculty.
Weekly meetings were held in the cafeteria each Friday after school, and though president Paul Blank had to rap for order more than once, it was at these meetings that member enthusiasm was channeled into the numerous projects of the council.
As an active member of the council, Ralph Hotchkiss was the first to receive the honor and responsibility of Homecoming Chairman, setting an excellent example for future chairmen as he co-ordinated the many events that made this year's Homecoming celebration successful.
Interested in the social aspects of school, the council hosted an after-game hop at Christmas time. Money and canned food were collected for needy families in the name of the students of Harlem High School.
The spring dance, which is always a highlight of the year, had a unique theme and was an enjoyable occasion for all.
An outstanding project of the Student Council was the establishment of two one-hundred dollar scholarships for a worthy senior boy and girl. The applicants for these scholarships were any college-bound students. From the applicants for the scholarships, the faculty advisors of Student Council evaluated them and chose the recipients.
To remind us of our patriotic heritage, this year's council initiated the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning under the leadership of the Student Council president.
Student Gnincil is the organization "of the students, for the students, and by the students"; which strives to improve school spirit, promotes newer and better ideas and activities, and provides friendly cooperation between faculty and students activities.

"Thump ... Bull's eye ... Crack .. . Triple ..
These sounds greeted present and prospective members of the '64-'65 G.A.A. season. Volleyball, basketball, swimming, and bowling were the indoor activities substituted as the cold north winds began to blow.
Under supervision of Mrs. Turney, Mrs. Wiebusch. and Miss Griggs, enthusiastic girls increased proficiency and skills as well as displayed the three principal traits of G.A.A.—Character, Good Sportsmanship, and Physical Fitness.
Along with its athletic activities, the G.A.A. also provided a coat check service at each home basketball game.
"Are you going to the G.A.A. Formal Dance?" was the great question heard up and down the halls of Harlem High before the Christmas holiday. Ambitious committee members beautifully decorated the gym so that it truly looked like a "Winter Wonderland.” The girls spent long fun-filled hours in preparation for the highlight of the Christmas season.
When winter gave way to spring, the G.A.A. members got out their golf clubs, tennis rackets, and baseball bats to warm up for the spring events to round out the year's athletic activities.
A mother-daughter banquet was a fitting end for an activity-packed year. The G.A.A. members attended the banquet with a feeling of accomplishment in themselves, and the delighted members stepped forward with pride and enthusiasm to receive awards, earned for their active participation in G.A.A.
