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. mi H U Amee ,f Q, Wf Vlgfdf, f f W SQQQ1 ff Mx X :s:11LN,Xf'::gN,: Girls' Club ROW 3: Y. Lowe, E.

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- ful year! n was I Q 5 M ,NMA 4 LM., f' 5 ' 5 i Boys' Club ROW 2: Mr. Wittick, T. Rothschild, I. Robbins, B. Beyer, H.

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. .V .rv ,gtg V0 MPS' 5 ..
