Key Club Promotes Civic Responsibility The Key Club, a junior branch of the Kiwanis Club, stood as one of three service clubs for boys at Rocky. Meetings, presided over by senior president Greg Gil¬ lette, were held the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the college reading room at High School. Gaining membership was a combined process of teacher nomination, based on good grades and a well- rounded personality, as well as by election by existing members. Through the year, Club members carried out their purpose: the promotion of leadership and service to the community. New programs and fund raising ideas were introduced into the Club by Lee Nelson and John Mordhorst, who attended the National Kiwanis Conven¬ tion in the summer at Louisville, Kentucky. Soap was col¬ lected In an annual drive for Dixon State Hospital, and the annual Kiwanis Carnival drew a record-breaking crowd. The selling of basketball programs and a ' ' car- bash ' ' were among the money raising activities which helped the Club net the proper amount of funds which were promised by Key Club for the aid of the commun¬ ity.

TOM KELLY AND Ed Hamming leave school for the Rotary luncheon. Rock Island Rotary International sponsored Junior Rotarians from Rock Island High School for the fourth consecutive year. Eighteen Junior Rotarians are selected each year by the faculty for their leadership qualities and scholastic achievements. Two Junior Rotarians at¬ tended four Rotary luncheon meetings each month. These meetings were held at the Rock Island YWCA for the purpose of discussing a variety of business, such as Rotary sponsored scholarships, the presentation of a plaque to AAr. Seymour Golden for outstanding service to the community, and general discussions of world and local happenings. Frequently, guest speakers were fea¬ tured at the meetings. The boys ' attendance at Rotary meetings enabled them to have a better understanding of the purpose and value of their future civic responsibil¬ ities.
