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. Every student learns about the ' Rob K hlar takes a break and plays frisbee. Frisbee was a popular leisure activity at I- Camp. ik and l its-in s Three journalists from Burroughs.

Due to the large size of the campus, it was hard to find them in one place at a single point in time. government while participating in his legislative duties. 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

3' I-Camp Students from all parts "What?! The dorms aren't air- conditioned?" This was a com- mon response by the seniors and juniors who signed up to attend l-Camp at Mizzou. A week after school ended, the editors of "The News," the "Codasco," and their staff members packed up their bags, loaded up their cars with soda and snacks, and headed for Co- lumbia. A couple of hours later at Mizzou, everyone was as- signed a dorm room with a room-mate, and the heat was definitely on. Fans were found twirling left and right, ice was everywhere, and everybody was trying to find a way to cool off. The following few days after orientation when everyone was adapting to the 90 degree tem- peratures, the twelve students 30fj Camp of Missouri study Journalism at Mizzou attended classes related to the activity they were in. Whether you were in Advanced Year- book, Newspaper, or Photogra- phy, everyone had three to four hours of classes with one and a half hours of lunch or dinner break in-between. These classes consisted of power lectutres, interviewing, layout, and expla- nations of the latest trends. The long hours in the class- room appeared to have paid off. In the annual write-off, Garth Weins took a surprising third in the News Feature contest, while Tom lames walked away with a second in sportswriting. To say that one did not learn much at I-Camp would be a big mistake. 1-camp definitely provided the teaching needed to orga- nize a newspaper and yearbook. Near the end of the week, how- ever, even though the home- work had increased, party fever went through the camp. Poker was the scene in Praveen Ko- suri's and lohn C,regory's room, where the nickle ante was at- tractive to the students of other schools. ln the hall, Australian Football with a nerf was being played. Most students found that there are many more hours of valuable work time in the Rob Khlar ileftl laborishly tolls over his homework project for Advanced Newspa- per.

Quick lunches were grabbed at the McDonalds, Shake- speare's Pizza, Wendy's, or at the health food store ... all on campus. Students found the campus to be a city by itself. And the C.D.S. journalists were quick to find the similarities be- tween dorm dinners and Coun- try Day lunches. But dinner was a time to relax. At night the guys from Smith Hall congregated in front of Donnelly Hall to converse with the females. On Thursday of that week, the students from Country Day showed the rest of the journalists how to REALLY dance. by Chip Reichardt
