We do not deny the need for a curfew. We only advocate a cur­ few that treats a girl seventeen years old, or in most cases, older, like an adult, not like a thirteen- year-old girl on her first date. The idea of a curfew stems from the belief th a t a student is too immature to handle the responsi­ bility of being “on her own.” But, and we ask this question in all seriousness, isn’t a person who is old enough to manage his own money and run his life in every other respect, old enough to stay out past ten o’clock on a week- night and past one o’clock on a weekend if they really w ant to? Although the purpose of the cur­ few may be to keep some girls out of trouble we would like to bring up the point which we heard from the parent of one of the students. “W hatever her daughter wanted to do could be done before the twelve o’clock curfew she had set for her, so she lifted th a t archaic method of restriction and started to trust her daughter on her own upbringing and moralistic respon­ sibility.” I do not advoate withdrawal of curfews — only moderation of those laws now in effect.

According to Fran Parish, Act­ ing Secretary, our Fire Depart­ ment is working closely with the Bloomingdale Fire D epartm ent and has made contacts with sev­ eral fire departm ents in the Scran­ ton, Pennsylvania area. Any further plans are indefinite as yet, but they are hoping for an active year. They hope too, that anyone who is interested in the work of the club will join.

Will The Support We Had For The Left Bank Remain The Same All Year? What has happened to school spirit? This year our student council decided to start the year out big by bringing in the Left Bank. W e paid close to $1400 for two hours of entertainment in hopes that, if our student body supported this our chances of a bigger and more impressive fall or spring weekend would be more probable. Con' sequently this is now only a hope with very little possibility. Out of a student body of almost one thousand, four hundred and eighteen bought tickets and attended. Some were dates from other colleges and a group from the nearby town came. What happened to the other 2/3 of the student body? W e have all complained about no social activities here at school. At student council we were undecided as to whether it would be best to have a dance or a well-known musical group, lt was decided that maybe if we could get the students interested enough to support our activities we could go “way out” later in the year. Anyone can have a dance and use a local band, but what if we brought in a good popular well known group? W e tried and as a result we lost $150.00 and any definite chance of top entertainment here at school. Being a small school we have to realize that our wants are limited. W e cannot spend $10,000 dollars for entertainment, but we can come somewhere close. All we need is student support, whether it is done by participating in different activities and committees or just in attend- ing what we can give. We will only get out of school what we put into it. W e all want more social activities. This makes a more enjoyable school year. By raising money and putting in a little spirit, it is never too late to try again. Our fall weekend comes shortly and for all those bringing dates from home what can we give them for entertainment and how we better our school depends entirely on each individual not only our leaders.
