In November Rozellan Ballard, Lois Paap, Darlene Brown and Jessie Rooten attended the Y. W. C. A. conference at Hastings.
The Y. W. C. A. aroused interest in a Y. M. C. A. on the campus by inviting the men to a joint meeting.
At Christmas time the Y. M., Y. W., and L. S. A. met together to carol for the faculty and student body. A Christmas pageant was given at Convocation with the aid of the Peruvian Singers, Y. M. and Mr. Moore.

Such things as purchasing and installing an automatic record player in the Bob Inn. maintaining the recreation room, securing a guest speaker on nuclear physics, sponsoring the "Lil Abner1' dance where the students could shed ties and shoes, sponsoring weekly formal dances, and by working in conjunction with the dormitory council — purchasing games for those not fortunate enough to go home weekends arc but a portion of the council s activity.
The Student Council in its weekly meetings is confronted with problems varying from parking lots to Freshman initiation.
Students began to feel the extent of their activity during Freshman initiation. Homecoming was entirely in their hands. This year the council broke some of the ties of traditions and purchased blue and white caps for the Freshmen.
Besides proposing legislation. the Council does what it can to augment student activity.
