THE CHRONICLE 25
Our Student Council, an organization representing the students in the affairs of the school, has been very successful in its undertakings. We have forty-eight on the roll, a larger membership than any former Lyman Hall council. Yet, we can not function properly unless we have the entire student body behind us.
The officers for the year are president, Stanley Bellows; vice-president, Edward O’Connell; secretary-treasurer, Charlotte Crump. There are two members from each home room, giving each class an equal representation. The faculty advisers are Miss Dunlap and Mr. Torrey.

On a Wednesday afternoon one may see the Art Room filled with students wearing brightly colored smocks looking extremely artistic. Some are cutting block prints, others viewing their work at a distance, and a few waiting for inspiration to come. This is the meeting of the Daubers who are chosen because of their artistic ability. Every other Wednesday is a business meeting after which the members work on their particular projects. The remaining Wednesdays are left for social activities. As you may remember, one such Wednesday was given over to a dunking party, held to celebrate the completion of the poster work advertising last year’s Junior Play, Dollars to Doughnuts.
This year as last year the Daubers have already started plans for their annual Christmas sale. Christmas cards are being printed, designs for wrapping paper are being submitted, ash trays modeled, and many other interesting nicknacks designed. With the proceeds of this sale, the Daubers hope to make a visit to the haven of all artists. New York.
All the Daubers owe the enjoyment of their meetings to Miss Farr, who is a competent, friendly director.
The official Daubers are chief dauber, Gerry Bassett; secretary, Frances McLaughlin; and treasurer, Kathryn McLaughlin.

Every other Tuesday the Debating Club holds its meeting in Boom 4 under the direction of Mr. Patten. Although outsiders believe that the club functions only at these meetings, there are many ambitious projects under way. Several inter-class debates have been arranged to give us practice for the coming state debate.

Much credit for the success of the play goes also to the committees under the following chairmen — Betty Young, general chairman; Theodore Lendler, tickets; Richard Talbot, ushers and programs; Katherine Bridgett, candy; Ethel Kosa, costumes; Charles Burghart, stage; Marcia Williams, properties; and Viola Lendler, publicity.
The orchestra added greatly to the enjoyment of the evening, playing three selections Overture Black Diamond, Trepak, and Festival March.
On Saturday evening, November 21, the annual Senior Dance was held in the “gym”, which was attractively decorated with red roses. Bonyai’s Orchestra furnished a pleasing dance program, and refreshments were served during intermission.
The plans for the dance were in charge of the following chairmen of committees: invitations, Roberta Johnson; refreshments, Marilyn Jeralds; decorations, Charlotte Upham; and orchestra, Edward O’Connell.

Student Council Dance
’Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and in the gymnasium the first of a proposed series of dances was given by the Student Council for members of the student body. Novelty dances were a feature, with music by Sebastian’s five-piece orchestra. The low price, fifteen cents for stags and twenty-five cents for couples, attracted many pupils.
So come to the next dance and enjoy these informal, social affairs with your friends.

In the poster contest sponsored by the Junior Play Publicity Committee, Polly Biggins received first prize, Jane Bassett second, and Frieda Buza third. Honorable mention was received by Frances and Kathryn McLaughlin and Kenneth Wright.

The Athletic Association
The Athletic Association has started its membership drive for the present year. During the past two years memberships have decreased, but this year we hope for better success in gaining new members.
Let us all join this money-saving association. We can save twenty cents on every basketball game, and as there will be eleven home games in basketball this year, we can save two dollars and twenty cents if we belong to the association. Join now and keep our teams on the proper athletic standard.

We are pleased at the large number of students who have gone out for debating this year and at the interest these new members are taking in our activities. Robert Slie, president, issues a welcome to any other debaters i n the school who have not yet joined our group. You will find debating a benefit as well as an enjoyable activity.

The brass ensemble consists of six instruments, the string ensemble has five, and the clarinet quartet, of course, four.
