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

joined many others from
schools throughout the state
to enjoy the nine frenzied,
but happy days at Pelican

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-

athletic events, stunt nights, and even a radio program.

'BEHRMAN CELEBRAT-ES TWENTY-FIRST HOMECOMING
By.Mari1yn Ruiz and Jo Ann Koch
Renewing old acquaintances, mingling with the crowd of excited fans,
and watching a thrilling football game are always pleasant experiences. Wheii
all of these are combined with the added activities of Homecoming, it's enough
to bring a lump in your 'throat and a mist to your eye. This seemed to be
'the feeling of hundreds of loyal Behrman supporters at Behrrnan's Homecominng
game against Metairie during the past season.
Everyone had worked hard to make this the biggest! Homecoming the
Bees had ever fwitnessed, and even 'the defeat that the Bees suffered on
the gridiron wasn't enough to daunt the spirit of the players or the enthusiasm
of the crowd. The excitement began Friday with the Pep parade. Faculty
members, students, and members of the Alumni met in front of school. From
here a parade proceeded through Algiers. After the parade, the crowd gathered
at the Foundry Field, where a Metairie "dummy" was burned. Around this bon-
fire, Behrman followers cheered and sang.
Before the game, fourteen of the football squad presented their sponsors
'with tiny footballs. During the half-time ceremonies, Carolyn Herndon, queen
of the Homecoming, was crowned by Cornniissionerr Glenn Clasen, a former,
athlete and graduate of Behrrman. Maids of the court and their sponsors were
Jackie Brechtel and Ernest Danjeang Jane Andry and Kenneth Soulantg Ada
Gros and Charlie Sutherland, Doris Bertoniere and gAnthony Christiana
Marilyn Ruiz and Jim Marting Karen Nielsen and Bobby Kellerg Martha Car-
roll arrd Herbert Ellenbergg Jo Ann Koch and Jack Oserg Pat Lambert and
Tom Boyer, Joyce Romero and Eugene Browng Nancy Bush and Louis Domino,
Jackie Hanley and Martin Gould, and Marilyn Thompson and Rufus Campbell.
