given the power to appoint a committee with Miss Peekema as faculty advisor.
On March 13, 1925, three one-act plays were given; the first "Teeth of the Gift Horse," "The Falcon and the Lady," and "Suppressed Desires." Between acts the Girls' Glee Club sang several selections, which were followed later by a "Tea Cup Dance" and a Freshman "Skit." This entertainment was given before a crowded house and was a great success: financially it added over $150 to the Student Body treasury.
At a special meeting February 13, 1925, a motion was made and carried that committees be appointed by the president to get subscriptions from each student in the school and each member of the community for the athletic field. Another motion was made that every boy devote at least one day to work on the athletic field. To the surprise of many this motion also carried. (The Student Body is composed largely of girls.) In return, a motion was made by the boys that the girls should prepare a dinner for the boys who worked on the athletic field. This motion carried also.
During a few meetings, we had practice in parliamentary drill, under Miss Durant's guidance, and I think the Student Body is showing a decided improvement in the manner in which the meetings are progressing.
