lCoordinator of Student Activities!
We of the 1956 "U-Highlights" staff dedicate this record of our school life to
the one person who is most directly concerned with each of us and our activities--
Since Mrs . Hoelscher arrived in 1949 , she has taken a personal and friendly
interest in every student. We appreciate her encouragement and guidance which have
played so large a part in our achievements of the past year. '

The 1956 activities of the Student Council followed the traditional pattern.
Most of the work was done by committees, and the biweekly meetings were devoted
to matters of policy and to committee reports.
Some of the functions of the Student Council were to maintain a Student
Activities Pool, plan assemblies, sponsor the Bazaarnival and Stomp-Inns, select
cheerleaders, hold elections, run a canteen, help enforce school rules, and hold
regular meetings where problems were discussed and Where students voiced their
opinions through their representatives .
The Student Council also branched out into new areas. This year we helped
support a high school girl in France. All this and more added up to a successful
1956 for U-High's Student Council.

The Girls' Club's Big-Little Sister Tea-marked the beginning of the school
year. This was followed by an Open House and the "Pumpkin Prance" social held
in co-operation with the Boys' Club. Early in November, the four Girls' Club
committees: Activities, House, Publicity, and Social, combined and the committee
suppers were held.
The Christmas season was an especially busy one for the Girls' Club this
year! The annual Christmas Gift Drive collected a record number of gifts for
the University of Chicago Settlement House. The Christmas Open House, for girls
only this year, was planned by the Pre-Freshman members of the Board. The girls
sang carols, had refreshments, and Mr. Bennett, our mystery Santa, passed out
gifts to all. V The House Committee Worked very hard to finish our new draperies,
which added a lovely touch to the Open House. The Pre-Freshman and Freshman
Party, "Ianua1yIump," was a great success. Thornton "Wilder's play, "Our Town,"
was presented by the Drama Club for the Mother-Father-Daughter Party. This year
the Girls' Club sponsored Bingo, a very popular concession, at the Bazaarnival.
The Girls' Club Dance, "Spring Fever," ushered in the season and Lower Sunny
was transformed into a flower garden for the occasion. The year ended with the
annual Ioint Board Supper, welcoming the newly elected officers.
Many thanks to our advisors, Miss Ianecek and Mrs. Rodgers, for a wonder-

The Boys' Club is the center of activity for the upper school boys. After
school the Club provides facilities for playing ping-pong, billiards, pool, chess,
checkers, and cards .
During the year the Boys' Club sponsored many of the big parties of the
school. These were the Tea-Dance, inter-grade parties, the Pre-Freshman and
Freshman party- "Ianuary Jump" - a Social Cheld jointly with the Girls' Clubl,
The Sports Dance Khekd with the Intramural Boardl, and one of the biggest events
of the year--the Boys' Club Dance.
Besides the socialpactivities the Boys' Club also sponsored the Spook House,
a concession at the Bazaarnival, the Ioint Board Supper for new members, and its
annual Christmas Fund Drive for the University of Chicago Settlement House Party.

The Intramural Board had a successful year sponsoring the afternoon sports
program. Ann Ingle was Girls' Sports Committee Chairman, Iohn Halperin Boys'
Sports Committee Chairman, and Mrs. Murphy and Mr. Hansen its advisors. The
Board gave U-Highers a well-rounded sports schedule which included hockey,
volleyball, and basketball-officiating for the girls, football and water polo for the
boysp and basketball and softball for both girls and boys .
Among the year's special activities were the student-faculty hockey, basket-
ball, and softball games, and the girls' basketball game with Francis Parker.
A new award system was the most important project completed by the Board
this year. Another new project which the Board co-sponsored was the Sports
Party. The annual spring party- an afternoon of sport activity, a dinner, and an
evening of dancing -, climaxed the season.

Last year, the Sophomore Class formed a Dramatics Club with Mrs. Rodgers
as the advisor. They met early in the spring in order that a play could be prepared
for the Girls' Club Mother-Father-Daughter Party. The play Letters to Lucerne
was given and the students who participated in it were theifirst .members of the
Dramatics Club. This winter, under the direction of Mrs. Rodgers, The Happiest
Days of Your Life was presented. In order that students might get experience
in directing and producing a play, the performance of Suppressed Desires, given
for an Upper School assembly, was handled entirely by members of the Dramatics
Club. The last production of the year was Our Town, directed by Mrs. Rodgers.
Besides giving plays involving the work of many students, members of the
Dramatics Club have worked on small skits and monologues that were presented
to the Club for criticism.
