Enrichment Is Club’s Goal Hopeful future poets, authors, and critics assemble monthly, bearing the title of Literary Club. The organization consists of twenty members under the leadership of Pete Soderberg and Ann Erwin. The students divide themselves into two groups, the Creative Writing Section and Literary Criticism Section. The Writing Section concerns itself with student poetry, short stories, and other writings. Both groups may then discuss the shortcomings or strong points of the work. From this young writers perceive different views on their creativity. The Criti¬ cism Section chooses, usually, a novel for the group to read and analyze. Chosen novels were “Johnny Got His Gun ' , an anti-war novel; “The Hobbit " , a sophisticated fairytale; and “Cat ' s Cradle " , a spoof on a futuristic society. However, any art work may be criticized. Literary Club also helped the Creative Writing II classes in producing their literary magazine. TOP A quiet corner in the library proves to be a good get¬ away for Pete Soderberg. CENTER: BOOKS the symbol of the Literary Club.

Rocky Looks at France Les terrines d ' alouettes truffles. Quelques feuilles jeunes du jardin. Le cafe noir. Most would not recognize these phrases at a glance. Suppose they were on a French menu (which, inci¬ dentally, is where they belong) would you, then, have an idea what you were ordering? The majority of French Club mem¬ bers would; an understanding of the French language is a ma¬ jor bond between this group of students. They also have an in¬ terest in the customs and way of life in France. Breathing in the Eiffel Tower, gazing at castles on the Rhone, or feeling a lone windmill in Brittany may be experienced through every ecstatic detail from a French foreign exchange student. Activi¬ ties for the year included a spring trip to Chicago, a tasting party, a football game with their Continental neighbor, the German Club, and a button sale. TOP French club officers are ready to open new doors. They are, Mary Grossell, Nancy Krug, Kar¬ en Martinson, Liz Lardner, Jamie Schneider, and Debbie Garber. RIGHT: Yummy! French club members enjoy the tasting party. ABOVE: Wendy Pannell, speaks out on behalf of her opinion at a French Club meeting. CENTER Miss Scholl eyes all the goodies at the French Club Tasting Party. 32

BSUCS Begins at Rocky One of the several new clubs chartered by the 1971-72 Senate was the Black Student Union, started before Christmas. The or¬ ganization is sponsored by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Bradford. New officers are Otis Boone, Billy Wilson, Cheryl France, Lynn Jack- son, and Gay Shannon. In this organization of some thirty to forty black students, the goal is to create better relationships between black students and the Rock Island community and schools, and to unite black stu¬ dents in self-pride. Projects included a Canned Good Drive for the needy of Rock Island, a Martin Luther King Memorial Assembly in April, and a banquet honoring all of Rocky’s black athletes.
