INCE Scripps is essentially a residence college, the necessary
divisions in the student body fall more readily into the
hall groups than the academic classifications. We have
decided that if this year book is to be an expression of the life
of the Scripps Campus, it must follow the obvious pattern of
division which is presented.
That pattern, as designated above-, is that of the four residence
halls, with the unification of the student body government.
From the first year of the college, 1927, when the now famous
"first class" elecfted its ofhcers to take control of the one tiny unit
on the campus, namely Toll Hall, the Scripps student body
has directed its own activities. During the first two years, the
government and the grouping confbrmed both to dormitories
and to academic classes, since the second class was placed by
itself in the new Clark I-lall to weather the 'storm of fteshman
year with no upper class attention, or at least very little. Class
officers and hall officers were then one and the same thing.
In the third year of the college's existence, however, the
classes were distributed evenly among the halls, and hall gov-
ernment and classification usurped the importance of the usual
class distinctions. ln I93O, the constitution under which the
college has reached its present organization was drawn up
Around this nucleus has been formed the present modus

The council is the governing power of the student body. lt
is composed of one representative Hom each hall and one repre-
sentative chosen ftom the student body at large. Witlliiu them-
selves, the council decide who shall a6t as president. This year
Iune Wliite, who was eleeted as representative at large, served
in the office of' president. Iane'Brandenstein, Ellen Browning
representative, was vice presidentg resigning her position in
March, she was succeeded by Dorothea Butler. Rita Haslcin,
Dorsey I-lall representative, was social chairman, Katherine
Barr from Toll, acted as secretary, and Frances Felin, Clark
Hall, continued her last year's position as treasurer.
- Questions which the Student Body Council is unable to de-
cide by itself' are arbitrated by the Student-Faculty Council. In
this conference are three faculty members who present to the
students the opinions and advice of' the administration. The
student body and the faculty members each have votes in choos-
ing the members of this council ftom the administration, while
the dean and the official hostess of the college are standing
members. The Eiculty then elecfts one member, and the student
body elects two more faculty members as representatives. This
year Iohn W. Darr .was chosen by the faculty, and Nathaniel
W. Stephenson and Iohn B. Appleton were elected by the
students. Because of' the increasing efficiency of the student
body government, this council has found it necessary to meet
only a few times this year.
With the Student Body Council as a centralizing unit, the
afftual governing of daily college life comes ftom within each
hall. I-louse meetings occur every two weeks under the leader-
ship of elecfted hall chairmen who serve also as social direcftresses
of the groups. Hall chairmen this year have been Bobbe Lee
in Clark l-lall, Emilie Pauli in Toll, Ianet Farrington in Ellen
Browning and Betty Lewis in Dorsey. It is within these organ-
izations that the principal group acftivity of the campus is
