Democracy at Boy's State When school lets out, students have three months in which they take vacations, attend summer camps, get a tan, go fishing, or just relax. But from lune 14th to june 21st, around 1100 boys who will be seniors attend Boy's State. These people are from high schools scattered about Missouri. Ev- ery state in the country has a Boy's State and they are sponsored by the American Legion. What is Boy's State? Well, Boy's State is a model of Missouri's Legisla- ture.

The "state" is held in Warrensburg, Mo. on the campus of Central Missouri State University. "Democracy depends on me" is the Boy's State slogan, and during his stay a student does learn that democracy depends on him. When a student ar- rives at the State, he is randomly placed in one of the 16 cities which has about 60 people. No one in the city knows each other at first, but by the end of the week the students know everybody in their city. The first order of events is to elect a mayor who then organizes his city. Elections are then held for senators and state representatives for each city. These people make the Boy's State laws. During the stay each stu- dent must attend a school of either law, law enforcement, legislature, or government executives. At each school students are taught and then testedg if a student does poorly on a test, it's points off for your city. By the middle of the week, a whole model government is set up. The state has a governor, a supreme court, a house and a senate, and then each city also has its own government. The government even has its own state troopers that can arrest people for walking on the grass, and rapping ltalking tol a waitress. The saying that goes along with Boy's State is that it was "A week to shape a lifetime" and it was indeed. If a student really puts effort into his stay, he will accomplish a lot, and take home an experience to be remem- bered for the rest of his life. By Guy Borders I-Camp 81 Boy's Statef31
