22 Representative Council Acting primarily as a contact group between the home rooms and the Student Council, the Represent- ative Council has various duties. They do not attend the regular meetings but are summoned for sev- eral meetings throughout the year. This group, comprised of one person elected by each home room, proved to be a successful means of conveying to home rooms the ideas of the Student Council, or vice- versa. This year's group was particularly representative of the student body.

Ck. 0 13 E TIME XWW a o 51 ENOUGH Sophomore Class Starting the year with 225 members, the sopho- more class actively participated in school affairs and showed unusual self-confidence and initiative. Show- ing great interest in class and student council elec- tions, they even upset the precedent when a majority of the candidates made campaign speeches in as- sembly. They elected as their class ohicers Harold Hunt, president, Dorothy Lancaster, vice-president, Jean Hosier, secretary-treasurer. Student Council representatives were Paul Engle and Jim Smith. Representing the sophomores' pep, June Limbocker acted as one of our cheerleaders and did full justice to their "vim, vigor, and vitality." The Sophomore Party, October 12, carried out a Halowe'en theme and was held in the Girls' Gym. Blessed with many interesting and worthknowing' personalities, this class did its part towards furthering the cause of "ye olde romance" and social activity in dear old M. H. S. Many was the lad and lass of this "infantile" class that captured the hearts of members of both sexes in the digni- fied junior class and even in the austere senior class. Need we mention any names-Suflice it to say that the class brought a preponderance of short- and-cute members along with a goodly sprinkling of those taller "handsomes" and "pretties." True to tradition of the Sophomore class, romance flowered "after hours" when these younguns, apparently re- luctant to depart from the scene o ftheir valient striving for mental betterment fof courselj, ling- e1'ed in the halls 'till long after the 3:20 bell. The real attractiveness of the feminine portion of the class was represented by Dorothy Lancaster, redhead, who carried off the honor of the "Blue M Beauty Queen" title. Sophomore boys seen either on the basketball court or the gridiron were: Adams, Blazing, Brown, Busenbark, Charlton, Cibolski, Hamlin, Hamm, 51013, Matthews, Oberg, J. Smith, H. Smith, and or . More bare facts: Sophomore members of the Home Room Representative Council were Darlene Johnson, Maxine Garrels, Arylene Hanson, David Holtz, Duane Anderson, Lester Bishop, Norman Woolgar, Bob Cook, and Blaine Thomas.
