Board of Control
HE board of control was hardfpressed at first because of the many
things to be done immediatelyg but our President, Charles Pierson, has sucf
cessfully carried us through our first year in the new building.
The budget was raised to 351750 this year because- new equipment for
nearly all sports had to be purchased. This was easily covered, with some
to spare falthough it was easy enough to find a use for itj, as both Senior
and JuniorfHi showed remarkable "pep" and bought the tickets quicker than
ever before, even though the prices were higher than formerly. SeniorfHi
tickets were raised to 53.00 and JuniorfHi to 32.10, and the quotas were
raised twenty per cent. A new cup was purchased for this contest, to be
known as the Activity Cup.
Early in the year two appointments were made: Howard Gregory was
appointed Athletic Manager and Paul Scott Advertising Manager.
It was decided that the boys' major letter will be awarded to girls for
track and basketball. The regular girls' letter was abolished and made into
a minor letter by enlarging it an inch. Several complaints had been made
about the extremely small size of the former girls' letters.
At the alumni assembly, which was held this year in the Liberty theater
on December 23, the P. H. S. graduates bettered all previous attendance records
when 172 of their number were present for the homecoming. The program
was composed of an address of welcome by the student body president, Charles
Pierson, and talks, stunts and musical numbers by the graduates.
One of the important resolutions passed by the board of control this year
was the rule that gum chewing was to be absolutely prohibited in the high
school building. Although the administration has had such a rule in the past
the habit was quite popular and the white maple floors of the new building
were becoming blackened with the refuse of the gum wads. The board memf
bers decided that a rule, prohibiting the practice altogether, was necessary and
took it upon themselves to put it into effect.
Mr. Murray and Paul Scott have given us a score board that we can
well be proud of. It is the first of its type' in this district, but there are
two of similar construction in the Southwest League.
The new building has been the cause of some major changes in our
Constitution. The separation of the Senior and JuniorfHi made it imperaf
tive that each elect a separate student body, president and staff. This was
put to a vote, along with some minor changes, and passed almost unanif
The board believes that fourteen of the cups which were destroyed in
the fire should be replaced. It is impossible to have all of them replaced,
so some of the older ones will have to be omitted.
