One of the best ways to judge the spirit of a school is to see the cross-section of an assembly. The assembly is the meeting place of the entire student body and faculty and it should serve as a socializing unit.

These are The Superintendent and Principal act On, November 4, the Assembly on by the Utica Jubilee Singers, four under the direction of Miss Hare. as ex-officio members.

ACTIVITIES COUNCIL Top Row-C. Gunnell, T. Slafter, Mr. Brant, S. Opperman, F. Hcindl. Bottom ROW+D. Evans, C. Whitcomb, L. Smith, B. Schafer, E. Tyler. President Leo Smith Vice-President Sinclair Opperman Secretary and Treasurer Bernadine Schafer In order to finance school activities, to create a better school spirit, to support any project for school improvement, to aid in activities of the school and to offer suggestions for the betterment of the school, the Activities Council continued its existence just as enthuslagtically as in the past years. The members were appointed by the student body as representatives of the four upper classes, football, basketball, baseball de- bate teams and band. These reliable and competent members were under Mr. Brant's able and sympathetic sponsorship. The busfness meetings were conducted in Mr. BranL's office, from 8 to 8:45 on Tuesday morning of each week. Many of this years events will be added to the history of the council, of which the two most profitable were the engagement of Mar- quis the Magician and the two one act plays produced by the dramatics club. The two one act plays were a great success. They were presented to a large audience on February 18. The Music Department also offer- ed assistance for this program. In March, the council sponsored the taking of moving pictures of school activities. These were later shown publicly in the gymnasium. The council also accomplished many other successful events. They had the honor of selecting the assembly committee, of conducting the Award Assembly, of sponsoring a Hallowe'en Dance and program, and appointing capable boys to send to the Rotary Club meetings with Mr. Brant. One of the outstanding services of the council has been to pre- pare a constitution under the leadership of Leo Smith, for a student booster organization. The constitution has been approved by the council. In the event it is approved by the s'udent body, one ticket, showing membership in the organization, will permit participation by the student in many of the school activities at a real saving in comparison to the cost in other years. The council wishes to extend their gratitude and thanks to Mr. Brant and success to all future council members. Pa gc Fifty-.seirxc

Pa gc The Vassar Archery Club, under the supervision of Mr. Hoyt, was formed January, 1938 and meets each Tuesday and Wednesday during the activity hour. It followed the Leather-Craft Club of the semester before, being made up of some of the previous members. They obtained the material to make their equipment from dues. Their bows are made of hickory, varying from five feet and a half, to six feet long. It was a long procefs taking two to three months unless extra time was spent. The bow string proved a stumbling block to some since twisting it made it too short. They also made and feathered their own arrows, using electric toaster wire carrying an electric current to trim the feather tops. Archery is an age old hobby as well as a sport which one can neither outgrow nor forget once he has learned what it has to offer. The craftsman learns about kinds of woods suitable, the importance of seasoning and drying as well as the use of tools in shaping the material. The sportsman learns how to practice alone, live out of doors, yet how to share with others in competition. The members can tell you all about William Tell and the King's Archers while developing that right aim at the same time. Fair weath- er finds them outside shooting, stormy weather finds them inside shav- ing. All boys and girls interested in becoming members will be welcom- ed by the club.
