THE STUDENT SOCIAL COMMITTEE
HE Student Social Committee is unique among organizations ,on this campus
in that its membership is composed of representatives of each class and
organization in the college. The class presidents each appoint two representa-
tives, while each organization is entitled to select one member for the c.ommittee.
Working in conjunction with the student group is a faculty social committee
of which Miss Hathorn is the chairman.
The purpose of the Student Social Committee is to plan the all-school social
program for the year. Under the leadership of Eugene Gossen, a senior who was
elected chairman of the group, the committee has planned and carried out an
excellent calendar of social activities. Bernice Jacobsen, also a senior, was
chosen secretary and treasurer for the year.
In order to divide the responsibility for arranging for social affairs, each
member of the organization was appointed chairman of a committee composed
.of several other members of the group to have charge of at least one event. Mr.
Gossen, as general chairman, assisted each of the individual committees.
Social life at the college under the direction of the committee opened with a
dance which was held Friday, October 2. Arnie Kuss and his orchestra fur-
nished the music for this well-attended party. The committee voted that a
uniform admission of ten cents per person be charged for this and succeeding
The social committee initiated what will probably become an annual custom
in the college by nominating six representative senior girls for Homecoming
queen. Nominations from other members of the student body were acceptable
until the Thursday before Homecoming when the committee conducted the
election in the college assembly. Adeline Larson was elected queen with Ardus
Erlandson and Bernice Jacobsen elected to be her attendants.
The Homecoming dance, which was held October 22, was the first major
event for which the Student Social Committee assumed responsibility. An
unusually large crowd of old grads and students danced to the music of the
Minnesota Collegians in the North Hall gymnasium, which was decorated with
red, white, and blue crepe paper and balloons.
The Christmas party sponsored by the Student Social Committee was given
after the musical organizations' Christmas program. The Yuletide spirit was
carried out by a Christmas tree, the distribution of candy and apples, and group
singing of Christmas songs.
As has become traditional, the committee sponsored matinee dances for the
afternoon .of registration day for the second and third terms. Throughout the
year free dances and dime dances were held after basketball games and on other
convenient occasions. Several parties at which cards and other games were played
were very popular with the students.
Besides planning social affairs for the college, the group decided that some of
its funds should be used for subscriptions to magazines not taken in the library,
since this would benefit a large number of the students. Magazines were ordered
for the Social Room, the Men's Union, and the College Inlirmary. A ping-pong
table for the South Hall gym and a new punch bowl were also purchased with
student social activity funds.
The Student S.ocial Committee has been successful in giving the student
body one of the most varied social programs it has ever had. We hope the new
committee which was selected this spring will plan a still more eliicient and
successful program for the coming year.
