MBHS' I BEHRMAN COOPERATIVE CLUB WORKS TO AID SCHOOL By Ronald Windham The Cooperative Club, a club consisting of mothers of Behrman students, was founded in the year'1942.

Never failing to live up to its name, the Cooperative Club is always will- ing to lend its support to other organizations formed Ito benefit the students and faculty. Both Junior and Senior High schools have benefited by the work of the Cooperative Club. Tacky parties and junior jumps were sponsored by the Coopera- tive Club for fthe Junior High students. Money to defray the expenses of the Senior Ring Party was raised by the Cooperative Club. In the past the Cooperative Club has accomplished many important things. Some of the tasks undertaken by the Club .were helping to raise funds to pur- chase the school bus, purchasing a tape recorder for the school and silverware for the home economics department. -if6O

"We still need another gun and hols- ter set." "How about those shoes you promised?"-ZThese loud voicings emerged from Room 305 during the Senior English and Bookkeeping classes a few days before the Christmas holidays. Students could be seen popping in and out, carrying articles of clothing, toys, books, food, and just about everything imaginable. What could be going on? Christmas had a lot to do with it! Perhaps everyone was thinking about some poor or unfortunate family who would not spend a happy, or merry Christ- mas. At any rate, these particular classes decided to "adopt" families and ,help make their holidays happier ones. The Welfare Agency in New Orleans furnished them a list of families who were in need of help. The classes had asked for four families, but as things began to pour in, it was evident that many more families could be helped. They had a job ahead of them, and they set out to accomplish it. There were bicycles to be painted, skates to be oiled, dolls to be "restuffed'7 and given a "new" face, clothes to be sorted according to ages and sizes -1-- Oh, so much, to be doneg but what fun they had doing it! The boys made them- selves useful and, in their spare time, did all the painting and oiling and fixing that was necessary. Of course, the girls had their share of the work and did a wonderful job in restoring the dolls to their original glamour. A few of them even got some of the stores in Algiers to donate games and toys that the kids of the families had asked Santa to bring them. The last few days before the Christmas holidays started were 'spent in sorting and gift-wrapping the toys that were brought in and in collecting last- minute articles of food and clothing. When the last box was finally packed and off to the Welfare Agency to be delivered, everyone heaved a sigh of re- lief--glad to be rid of all the bustle and confusion, but, not one of them would have given up that task-+the pleasure of helping make another's Christmans happier and one to be long remembered. 359

f 1 f , 1 ef JUNE..-1,9-gi BEHRMAN STUDEN'TS ATTEND PELICAN STATE Ph By Gayle Sutton and Ronald Windham - Learning to be a good citi- zen is an important part of everyone's education. Study- ing about the functions of vari- ous departments of our city, state and federal government is also important to each of us. But taking part in mak- ing the laws by which we are governed, planninng a city or conducting an election campaign can be fun as well as educational. At least that's what the delegates thought when they attended Pelican State conducted last summer on the Louisiana State Uni- versity Campus, Five students from Behrman joined many others from schools throughout the state to enjoy the nine frenzied, but happy days at Pelican State last summer. These students were edu- cated in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American Citizenship. Pelican State is divided into twelve cities, six parishes, and two main parties, each student becomes a citizen of one of the cities, and parishes and a supporter of one of the political parties. They have the opportunity of praciticing the governmental functions and duties, which are performed throughout the United States, such as nominating, campaigning, voting, and holding office. Each candidate for the Gubernatorial election, 1951, stated his qualifications to the Pelican Staters during their convoca- tions. In addition. to the political activity program the members participated in athletic events, stunt nights, and even a radio program. Delegates 'who were elected to attend Pelican State for the 1951 session were June Hebert, Jane Aundry, Gayle Sutton, Eugene Brown' and Lloyd Lawrence. The alternates were Jo Ann Borne, Jackie Senat, and Joycelyn Mc- Mahon, Ray Sperier, and Ronald Windham. As Lloyd Lawrence was unable to attend, Ronald Windham, his alternate, went in his place. Students chosen as delegates to represent Behrman this year at Pelican State are Barbara Hunt, Freddie McDonal, and Nick Christiana. Their alter- nates are Doris Bertoniere, Martha Jean Carroll, and Bernard Sanchez These students will learn that Pelican State is one of the best educational programs planned 'to increase their knowledge of citizenship.
