Government ot, by, for Students
To guide and direct BHS activities
is the main purpose of the student
council. This governing body stimu-
lates interest and cooperation in all
school activities, and strives, in gen-
eral, to improve our high school.
The student council consists of one
representative from each home room
chosen by popular vote, and is pre-
sided over by the student body presi-
dent, George Patterson. Meetings are
held whenever there are matters to
be discussed or decided.
The student council is a cooperative
organization working for the good of
the student body, and gives each stu-
dent a chance to voice his opinion
of the school government through
his home room representative.
Members for this year were: Sen-
iors-Donna Dyste, Priscilla Hill,
Ruth Norgaard, Helen Schilling, and
Tom Wright. Juniors-Harriet Case,
Priscilla Gilbertson, Elaine Klein-
sasser, Gene McCarty, and Marjorie
Wheeler. Sophomores - S t a n l e y
Brackenwagen, George Flittie, Lila
Mae Lake, Esther Madsen, and Stuart
Stevens. Freshmen-Gerald Brown,
James Moriarty, Gloria Stratton,
Marion Risch, and Yvonne Franzke.
The main project of the year is
Bobcat Day. For this, the following
committees are chosen: Banquet,
Dance, Bonfire, and Pep Meeting. The
members of these committees are
chosen from the student council.
This year, through the recommen-
dation of the student council, a new
project was undertaken in order to
obtain money for new bankboards.
Under their able leadership it proved
to be very successful.

HIGH SCHOOL BAND
A stirring march iills the air-red
and black capes fly in the Wind-the
band is again doing its part for BHS.
This year our band is composed of
fifty-eight members. The band ap-
peared at all athletic meets this year,
and also nobly represented the school
in numerous parades throughout the
year. As in past years all the mem-
bers were required to play a solo to
develop individualism. Besides play-
ing concerts this summer for the city
and participating in several other con-
certs, they represented the school at
the district contest and in the spring
festival held at Watertown.

Between Acts-Our Pit Orchestra . . .
The curtain falls and the pit or-
chestra begins the sweet strains of
Anton Dvorak's "Humoresque." The
pit orchestra offers musical entertain-
ment before the class plays begin and
between acts. This organization is
under the direction of Mr. C. E.
As the Junior and Senior orchestra
members are usually chosen to per-
form certain duties for their own class
play, it becomes necessary to choose
a new personnel for each play.
The pit orchestra differs from an
orchestra in that it is smaller and is
composed of outstanding students
from both band and orchestra. Mem-
bers are chosen as to their musical
ability. Those who played for the
Junior class play this year were as
Violins-Dona Thompson, Esther
Mae Madsen, Beverly Swering and
Louise Albrecht, viola-Dean Donerg

horns-Helen Schilling and Dorothy

Other smaller ensembles were or-
ganized such as the trumpet, trom-
bone and flute trios. The most out-
standing ensemble was the string
quartet composed of Dona Thompson,
Esther Mae Madsen, Bruce Miller and

On Etuclie Lo Vie Francoise . . .
La Cercle Francaise, the French
Club, composed of twenty-eight
French I and French II students, met
to discuss topics of interest concern-
ing French life and customs. Miss
Eva Bucknam acted as their sponsor.
These meetings consist of musical
numbers by club members, reports on
topics of French life, travel talks, and
often French motion pictures. One of
the most enjoyable programs of the
year was the March sleigh ride. After
two hours out of doors, the went to
the president's home for refresh-
ments and a talk by Miss Coral Hem-
mingson on her trip to Alaska.
The club's outstanding undertaking
this year was the annual sweater-
mixer held in the fall. This year the
dance was sponsored by the French
and Forensic Clubs together.
Each year the club subscribes to
Le Petit Journal, a paper composed
of clippings from French newspapers
concerning current events and other
topics of interes.
The club officers, excluding the
treasurer, are chosen at the April
meeting. The treasurer is chosen
from the incoming French class the
following fall. For this year the club

Les Publica Romana consists this
year of forty-seven members. Their
meetings are held for the purpose of
gaining a more thorough knowledge
of Roman life, customs, and language.
Membership in the Latin Club is open
to all students who have successfully
completed one semester of Latin. Fol-
lowing the custom of the Romans, the
Latin I students are called Plebians,
while all advanced students are re-
ferred to as Patricians.
At the first meeting a committee,
consisting of Harriet Case, Priscilla
Gilbertson, Marion Davies, Jean
Starksen, and Helen Smith, nominat-
ed candidates for this year's officers.
The programs for the year were
planned by Jean Holdhusen, Jean
Starksen, Emma Belle Anderson and
Edward Graf. Their programs in-
cluded a steak fry and skating party
at Lake Campbell, talks by Latin II
members, skits, songs, and games.
Seventeen new members entered
the organization at the February
meeting. Jean Starksen was in charge
of the initiation.

Journalistic problems and queries
are discussed by students of Journal-
ism in the recently organized Publi-
cations Club. This group meets with
one idea in mind, that being to aid
the students in learning more of the
practical side of publishing.
Red and Black Week, originated
and sponsored by Pub Club, has be
come one of the traditions of Brook-
ings High School. During the past
year the club has secured speakers
prominent in the field of journalism
to meet with the members at meet-
ings and discuss phases of journalism
Many Publications Club members
attended the South Dakota High
School Press Association convention
last fall at the college and took active
part in round table discussions. These
discussions included problems of edit-
ing school papers and learning the
fine points of photography.
Journalists who have shown suf-
ficient ability are selected for mem-
bership in Quill and Scroll. Members
elected in 1940 were Donna Dyste,
Shirley Graham, DeVern Fromke and
Dean Doner. Bobcat and Broboca
staff members who made outstanding
contributions were elected to mem-
bership at a late Spring meeting.
Donna Dyste was chosen as one of
ten journalists throughout the state
for the All State Staff.
President, DeVern Fromkeg vice presi-
dent, Donna Dyste: secretary-treasurer.

SSS Serves School, Creotes Pep ....
Sixteen senior girls are chosen each
year for membership in the Senior
Service Society. Their purpose is to
be of service to the school and the
community and to create pep at
games and pep meetings.
ln the fall the girls aided the
French and Forensic Clubs by serving
as hostesses for the first no-date
dance. The SSS sat in a group at all
football and basketball games, which
helped to organize the cheering. At
Christmas time the club sponsored
baskets for needy families to which
the student body contributed.
As in previous years, the girls gave
a supper in the Homemaking rooms
for last year's members. Speeches
were given by Priscilla Hill, Donna
Dyste, Miss Mauch, last year's ad-
viser, and Doris Ann Schaffner, last
year's president. Fay Lindstrom, ac-
companied by Jean Holdhusen, pre-
sented a group of solo numbers.
Outstanding activities of the year
were the Spinster dance, three trips
to out of town games, and two as-
sembly programs. The dance was
held in March, with girls inviting
boys. Out of town trips were to
Watertown for the football game and
the district basketball tournament,
and to Sioux Falls for the state tour-
This year Miss Bucknam was
chosen as adviserg the officers were:
President, Priscilla Hillg secretary and
treasurer, Doris Schillingg social chairman,

"Is your copy in?" "Ask Helen."
"See Mr. Zickf' All these have been
familiar phrases during the entire
school year for the Bobcat staff Work-
ers. Now, at the end of the year, they
