SENIOR ENGLISH AND BUOKKEEPING CLASSES ASSIST
By Jo Ann Borne
"Where can we get a size 48 dress?" "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.

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-
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-
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
