Page 4 THE CHIPMUNK lor 19 2 2 Flic tic-up was the hardest of all—each contestant was given two pieces of cotton rope with which to tic his adversary. When the whistle blew the battle was on. I he men must not only be tied up, but must be carried off the field of action. And this seemed next to impossible. When the time was up the Sophomore and Upperclassmen had succeeded in carrying off one wiggling Freshman and so this event was theirs. I he last event of the afternoon was a tug-of-war. A fire hose was fastened down securely just where the losing side would have to pass—a strong current of water was turned on. The stage was set and the battle was on. They tugged and they tugged, until finally the Freshmen dragged the Sophomores and Upperclassmen through the water, much to the delight of the Freshmen girls, and won the tug-of-war. Such a damp, saddened bunch of Sophomores as came out of the struggle, but what did that matter when the officials of the day announced the Sophomore-Upperclassmen contingent triumphant over the Frosh. as usual. B. E. 74. ORCHESTRA Quality, not quantity that s the motto of our Orchestra, not only in regard to size, but to the music itself. The personnel of the band? Oh—Gangly. Sweet Alice. Rheumatz. Mutt. Bun, Sister. Little Sister and Chipmunk. Oh! I get you—well then, they are—Roy Mitchell, Stanley Davis. Doris Drake. Milton Jenson. Fred Davis. Leslie Torgerson. Oliver Torgerson and George Chipman. Likewise—Cornet, Flute. Piano. Clarinet, Violin, Piccolo. Violin and Sax. The Orchestra is small but—Oh. Man! Next year we will have a twenty piece Orchestra. Sure. You don’t, huh? Well, just wait and see! G. C. 74. GLEE CLUB Some of the girls of the Westwood High School, with Mrs. Eby as their instructor, formed a “Girls’ Glee Club."

Maxine Forcum, Ruth Jensen. Edith Coil. Dorothy Dix, Mona Severns, Lydia McKinney. Edith Williford and Rita Lowe. With the patient work of their faithful instructor the girls accomplished much.

Although the members of the class have had little practice in debating they gave the Student Body a very entertaining and profitable afternoon, on Friday, May 21st. The subject of the debate was: Resolved: That the state has not the moral right to inflict Capital punishment for Capital crime. The affirmative was upheld by: Ruth Wilson. Ruth Gadehon. Lee Norah Roberts, and Lillie Maud Birdsong. The negative was upheld by: Fletcher Walker. Jr.. Erwin Morrison. Lewi» Erbes, and Mona Severns. After the judges had kept the Student Body in suspense for a period of ten minutes they announced the decision in favor of the affirmative. The decision being made on the merits of the debate. Lee Norah Roberts was selected as the most effective speaker; Ruth Gadehon and Edwin Morrison receiving honorable mention. L. M. B.. 72.

THE CHIPMUNK for 1922 Page 13 Student Body Activities The High School started this year with the same old mode of handling student body affairs. When the first meeting was held to install the new officers, the idea of student self-government was talked over. The idea met with the approval of the Faculty and students and the task of drawing up a suitable constitution was given to the civics class. The constitution as adopted provides for an Executive Committee, which shall have the entire charge of all student affairs. The executive committee is composed of the officers of the student body, the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer, together with two seniors, one junior, and one sopho- more. 1 he constitution also provides for a freshman to be elected at the beginning of the second semester. It provides that the faculty shall be repre- sented by three members who are allowed a voice in the discussion—but no vote. The faculty members are the principal, the girls’ athletic director, and the boys’ athletic coach. Meetings are held every Iliursday. and are presided over by the vice-president of the student body. To this committee was given the power to enforce all school laws. They uphold the discipline of the school and enforce such measures necessary to maintain high scholarship throughout the student body. All student body officers and class officers are required to maintain an average of two in their monthly grades. Should an officer fail to show such an average, his office is automatically declared vacant. All school business is brought before the executive committee each week or special meetings may be called at any time by the chairman of the committee. One of the most successful laws made by the executive committee was the enforced attendance to study hall of the students whose grades in any one subject fall below a three. There were quite a number sentenced to study hall the first month but that group has rapidly decreased until finally enforced attendance was abolished. The building, however, remains open each school night from 7:30 to 9:30, for those who wish to use the reference library or study hall. An upper class student is in charge and also a teacher to help students with reference work. An afternoon detention class was also established to punish tardiness. Besides these rules of discipline and scholarship the executive committee handled all the finances of the school, which amounted to about $ I 700. The various entertainments given this year by the High School have served to increase the school funds and have helped the students to gain valua- ble experience. All the school affairs are planned by the Executive Committee with the approval of the Student Body. Student Body meetings are held on alternate Friday afternoons. After the report of the Executive Committee is read, an open discussion is carried on. and all matters of importance arc talked over, after which a vote is taken. A. C. 24. SOPHOMORE-FRESHMAN DRAWL The first annual Sophomore-Fresh man Brawl was held on Friday after- noon of the first week of school. The afternoon’s entertainment consisted of a series of competitions between the Freshies and the Sophomores, aided by enough Upperclassmen to make the two sides equal, rhe events took place on the school grounds, where Student Body, Faculty, Grammar School pupils, and fond parents assembled to watch the events. The first event was seventy-five yard relay with eleven men on each side. This was very exciting, as the Freshmen pushed the Sophomores hard, but in the end the Soph’s were victorious. The next event was a snake relay—rather a humorous stunt. It was victory for the Freshmen. And then came the tilting contest! This was the most exciting event of the day—six gallant Freshmen riders mounted on spirited Freshmen horses, equipped with long lances (which were poles padded with burlap) were ignominously defeated by an equal body of Sophomores and Upperclassmen, on Sophomore horses.

THE CHIPMUNK lor 1922 Page 5 LABOR DAY Labor Day! How much is included in those two words, only the mem- bers of Westwood High can tell. On a certain Saturday, if you had been interested enough to look, you would have seen the members of our High School walking briskly to their shrine—the school house. But, dear friend, please do not labor under the delusion that they were going to study because I fear you would be sadly disappointed. The boys. Freshmen. Sophomores, Juniors. Seniors and all. forgot their manly dignity and began to "grovel in the dust." They dug rocks, hauled sawdust, filled pits, planted stakes and did all the various other things necessary to put a good track field in order. The typing classes kept the keys of their machines jingling and snapping briskly, getting the material for the Annual ready to go to press. The crowning success of the day was the chile con came, cooked by the girls who were eager to help but who could not type. And we’ll say for them. “They sure can cook'' Oodles of chile con came: stacks of buns, gallons of coffee and mountains of cake. And. oh! how we ate tunnels through the mountains, devoured the stacks and all the rest. Never had we worked and eaten so hard. E. W., ’23.
