STUDEN T SENATE OFFICERS The Student Senate, the governing body of the college, was organized in 1930. Since then it has shared with the administration the responsibility of student problems and has acted as an intermediary between the administration and the student body. Under the sponsorship of Dr. Pliska, the Student Senate has accomplished several major projects this year. Among them were the selling of second hand books fo r student convenience, the compiling and distribution of student directories, furnishing of guides for the Leonardo De Vinci exhibit, the supervising of all student elections, improv­ ing of the constitution, the planning for providing the col­ lege with an Alma Matter, and the co-sponsoring of the Spring Coronation Dance with the InterFraternal Council. The Student Senate belongs to the students of the college. They elect its members and it is their ideas and support which make it a success.

Sp rin g Coronation Dance promoters W inston B u rrus, Betty Burns and Ken Brown look on as Director L. W . Webb, Jr., “ kicks-off” the campaign for pledge sales by signing a pledge. A. W . SEELEY & SO N F lo rist 1910 Colley Avenue MA7-1748 or MA2-5114

HONOR COUNCIL Ted Hobson posts an Honor Code reminder with the help of Beverly

Effective since the founding of the College of William and Mary in Norfolk, the Honor System operates under the pledged support of every student officially enrolled in the college. This system provides for an eightman jury (four men and four women), four alternates (two men an^l two women), and a freshman representative. This year the Council not only concerned itself with conducting trials but it attempted to make the student body more aware of the functioning of the Honor System; such means were incorporated as sending letters to the faculty requesting their help in further explaining and reminding the students of their responsibility to such a system, the distributing of cards to individuals and the posting of signs in each classroom with the inscription “ My Honor Is My Life.” The Honor Council is under the sponsorship of Mr. G. W . W hitehurst.

PHI THETA KAPPA The Eta Pi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was formed in May of 1950 with seven charter members. Membership is based on a scholastic average which is 3.0 for a ¡freshman and 2.5 for sophomores. The activities of the club include a bi! monthly business meeting and two formal ¡initiations each year. Eta Pi presents a trophy for the best term paper written each year; this year the club has planned to pre­ sent a plaque for the future group to use. Eta Pi wants to recognize the juniors and seniors also; however, since Phi Theta Kappa is concerned only with a junior col­ lege, no provision is made for active mem■bershhip for higher class men. This year Eta •Pi plans to make juniors and seniors with a culumative average of 2.25 associate mem­ bers. Associate members cannot vote or hold office, but they can wear the Phi Theta pin.

OPERA WORKSHOP The W illiam and Mary Opera Workshop is a college organization which combines the talents of the students with professional musicians of the area. It has the dual function of giving the voice students of the music department an opportunity to acquire stage experience and serving the com­ munity as Norfolk’s civic opera company. Under the direction of Harold Hawn, the Opera Workshop has presented five operas this year: “ The W e ll’’ by Mennini, a new American manu­ script work, and “ R.S.V.P.” by Offenbach; “ The Telephone’’ and “ The Medium” by Menotti; and “ Cosi fan Tutte” by Mozart, presented in celebra­ tion of the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

GERMAN CLUB The German Club of the College of William and Mary-Norfolk, the first on record, was organized early in the fall of 1955. Students of the German langu­ age at the college who were interested also in German culture were instrumental in its organization. The stated purpose of the club is to stimulate more interest in the language and culture of Germany and to develop proficiency in German conversation. Under the capable leader­ ship of its officers and through the en­ thusiastic interest and unstinted support of its sponsor, Mr. Gerald Akers, interest has been maintained at a high level and its membership has steadily increased.
