THE STUDENT COUNCIL
carried on. Thus the halls are the most important divisions of
There is danger in such division, in that it might become too
marked, for a college is only successfill if its student body can
work as a unit at certain times. This unified body has been the
aim of the student council during this past year and as many
activities as possible have been originated in the larger group.
The cultural lift, academic pursuits and recreational activity
such as dances and athletics do not grow out of single halls.
In this way, we believe that there exists at Scripps a conven-
ient and powerful organization of students. Governing meet-
ings are held in groups not too large to be unwieldyg these
groups mold into one larger and more effective for important
activity, and coalesce into other various smaller units for aca-
demic work. It is this pattern then, that we have attempted to
Hullow in making the year book a reflection of the college itself

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

OLL Hall, the initial building of Scripps campus, has
amply lived up to its traditions this past year by sending
a goodly representation to each campus event. The Toll
fashion show at the first of the year marked our freshmen as
worthy of fiiture consideration. The I-Iallowe'en party, the
Christmas tea, the pageant, the Christmas party, which inci-
dentally was favored by a visit ftom Pere Noel, and the Faculty
tea, all found Toll as a center of gaiety. The Toll girls have
also contributed plentihllly to the cause of the unemployed
with money made ftom the sale of sandwiches peddled from
hall to hall.
Due to the absence of quiet hours, the Toll residents eat, sleep,
and occasionally study to the beats of a kettle-drum, descending
from the third story, where Scripps dancers kick their toes in
a boisterous manner. From entertaining the French Consul to
providing a home for a caroling Hog, Toll has adapted itself
well to any occasion, under the leadership of Anne Sharp, as
hall chairman the first semester, and of Emilie Paull the second.
