Rallg Committee and Yell Team Written into the A.S.U. I. constitution for the first time this year was provision for a student rally committee. The new organization, which worked in cooperation with the Vandal yell team, had charge of arrangements for all rallies and half-time entertainmen t. The committee operated on a " non-legal" basis under the leadership of Bob Desaulniers in 194 1-42, and when it was legalized this year Desaulniers was made chairman. Other members were chosen from among the cheer leaders and at random around the campus. Outstanding among the committee's work this year were the card stunts, worked out by
Yell King Rex Phillips a nd Desaulniers for the Idaho-W.S.C. game. The Idaho yell team was the target of much u nfavorable student criticism this year, after the A.S. U. l. executive board began interferring with its membership and activities. In the fall, while under the direction of Phillips, the team was "tops," but when P hillips resigned the kingship, and the execu t ive board shunned veteran team members to name Barbara Cronkhite yell queen, t rouble started. Old team members resigned, a nd the energetic Barby was compelled to work with a small, inexperienced crew.
