ff'kn, JTEDENT BODY GOVUREMENI. ' A
The school year ofIl927Ml928 witnessed a change
in the form of Student body Govern ent in the Jigh
School. Ihe new organization is still in the Yarn of
an experiment and if successful will require several
years trial. Under the new plan there is an eiecutive
body called the Student Council which legislates on
all matters Cfinancial and otherwisel of grdirarg ime
portance. The Student Council is made up of the
executive officials oi the Boys and Girls Elub: and
,representatives from each class, The purpose of this
torganization is to more closely unite all school act-
'ivities. The Student Council elects its svn ,-i. officers
i and makes their own rules of prodedure. The treasurer
of the Student Council handles all money earned by the
different organizations of the school but keeps a
separate account for each. The Council is limited
powers by a constitution which defines tne powers of
the Council and the Student Body as a whole. .
i During the first semester the following mem-
i bers were elected: , '
L Boy's Club--Howard Umith, Ralph 5pringer, Art
Derby and Melvin 5nyder. r
iGirls' Club--Margaret Boyd, Thelma Bergren,
Gertrude Allen, Lois Logue. -

land a plan for Student Participation for controlj in
fthe Study Halls was discussed. A committee was ap-
Wpointed to write to the different schools asking them

lgestions were recieved end the Council was very busy
drawing up a set of rules and regulations suitublc
for our school.
