THE CHIPMUNK for 1922
P a g e 9
THE publication of any High School Annual would be impossible without the
co-operation and backing of the whole student body. All this has been freely
given and the staff takes this opportunity to express its thanks and appreciation.

THE CHIPMUNK for 1922
THE HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL
The publication of a High School annual is an inspiration to literary
effort. The desire of the students to put out an annual that is worthy of the
school brings forth articles and stories which would not otherwise be written.
Hie annual is representative of the entire student body, as all activities
are recorded and each one who has won a place in athletics, dramatics or
other activity has a permanent record of the event. Many gay functions
take place during the year and these, recorded in the annual, form happy
memories in after years.
The annual increases the spirit of co-operation in the school as it is
necessary for all to work together to obtain the money for its publication
and later the annual staff, the typing class, the faculty and all the students
work together to prepare and edit an annual that is really representative of
R. W. ’23
In many schools the plan of self-government has been tried and found
insufficient and faulty. Possibly the reason for this apparent failure of such
a system is due to lack of co-operation from the student body as a whole.
For student government to be successful, each individual member of the
student body should realize that those fellow students whom he has elected
to the offices are his representatives; that they, as student body officers, realize
the confidence that has been placed in them by their classmates, and that
they are unselfishly and whole-heartedly working for the best interests of the
school and of the association of individuals in the school. It cannot be denied
that a great responsibility is placed upon the student officers of a school. Each
and every student keeps in mind a responsibility and is ready to aid whenever
called upon. He abides by the decision of the elected officials as quickly
as he would an order from the faculty. He not only abides by the decisions
of his chosen government but it is his duty as a good citizen of the high
school to aid the self-government committee to enforce the constitution and laws
of the school. The citizen of the community who aids the authorities in detect-
ing an undesirable citizen is not ridiculed by his neighbors. Neither is a good
citizen of high school ridiculed by his fellow student, when he aids his officials
in bringing to task an unrulely classmate. The high school student has out-
grown the old notion that the chief purpose of school is to play pranks on
the teacher and see how many times he can get “by" with it. For many
years the high school student has governed not only himself but also his fellow
students. The purpose of the school is to develop the mind and body so
that the boy or girl may make a better citizen. Is not the school then the
place where government of self should be taught? The old saying, "A man
must learn to govern himself before he can govern others" is undeniably true.
Student government should never fail. If it does fail, where does the
fault lie? Certainly not altogether with the officials of the government, but
rather with the student citizen. Student government cannot succeed unless
the student citizen is willing to make it a success.
ITie duty of a student to his student government is co-operation—
co-operation to such an extent that he should appoint himself as a committee
of one to see that he, himself, upholds the decisions of his officers, and if he
does that efficiently, there won’t be any need of watching the other fellow.
Co-operation is the watch word of Student Self-government.
