THE HONOR SOCIETY
HE Honor Society is made up of those students who have received two and one-half
fhonor points per credit hour for one term or more. Approximately ninety persons
have achieved such records and are included as members of the organization.
A small silver "R," which may be worn by the members, is the emblem of the
Honor Society. Upon graduation a gold "R" is awarded to those who have had two and
one-fourth honor points per credit hour and have received no grade below a "C." This is
based on eleven terms of work.
Because of the diverse interests of its membership, the Honor Society functions
chiefly as a social organization. Meetings are held monthly, and consist of parties or
other activities conducted for the enjoyment of the members. Members of the group
acting in committees plan and and put on the parties.
The Hrst activity of the year was the construction of the Honor Society float for
Homecoming under the direction of Harold Doornink. Members of the organization met
eight times during the year. Three of these meetings were informal teas, given to welcome
new members at the beginning of each term. At each of the teas musical selections were
given with Margaret Johnson and Margaret Bendix at the piano. Mrs. Eide was hostess
at a Christmas tea for the group, which then included new members joining at the close
of the first term. Gladys Bleisner was pianist.
Several parties were also given by the organization. Among those who appeared on
programs throughout the year were Carl Miller, James Grunke, Mary Catherine
O'Connell, and Jack Bailey. Especially entertaining was the program given by Carl
Miller, in which he described his trip through Europe the previous summer with his
collegiate orchestra. Beautiful photographs and slides of Paris, London, and other famous
cities were shown.
This year, as has been customary with the Honor Society, several unique party ideas
were introduced. Chairmen for these parties were Margaret Bendix, Jack Osborne, and
Mildred Hillestad, each of whom introduced several new games to the group. Most fun
was the all-newspaper party, directed by Mildred Hillestad, in which newspapers were
used for every imaginable purpose-even that of costumes for the members. Jack
Osborne's game which attempted to make all Honor Society members into comic artists
also proved a success.
The two final meetings of the year consisted of the election of officers for 1940-41
in April and of a picnic in May.
All activities of the Honor Society are planned to foster a feeling of friendship
among the members and to give each person a chance to work with others.
