This year's election of the Student Council was marked by one of the most interesting
and exciting presidential elections in the history of C. H. S.
Susie Fahnestock, Mal
DelValle, and Bill Fisher campaigned vigorously up to the very last moment in attempts
to sway public opinion.
After election day, when the smoke of battle had cleared,
was discovered that Bill Fisher had been elected to be the twelfth president of the
obal High School Student Association.
The Student Association is governed according to Parliamentary Procedure through
a governing body known as the Student Council.
representatives are elected from
each of the various classes.
These, in addition to the president, vice president,
tary, and treasurer, comprise the Student Council.
Through this system students of C. H. S.
are exposed to representative democracy, similar to that which they may find as citizens
in adult life.
Representative student government in
has been particularly successful
One of this year's goals was to make the Student Council more representative

rules and regulations are much the same as those of the National Honor Society.
The idea for encouraging good high school citizenship and scholarship spread and
soon societies emulating the activities and accomplishments of Phi Beta Kappa in Uni-

Many of these consoli-

In order to be eligible to the National Honor Society a student must have an A or

he is one who is primarily intended to be honored.
The pupils are ranked in numerical

The Cristobal High School softballers climaxed the season with a 4-3 victory over a
strong Balboa Ten. Cristobal had previously lost to the Junior College by a score of 6-2.
Johnny Hower of Balboa and Jim Fernandez and Denis Venning of Cristobal pitched
brilliantly, giving up but three hits between them. Hower's downfall came in the first
two innings when all four of Cristobal's markers crossed the plate, the result of two walks,
two stolen bases, and four costly errors.
The Junior College game was another matter, however, with Ed Kunkel's speedy
delivery proving just too much for the local lads. The Collegians quickly picked up a big
six-run lead which they held until the last inning when Cristobal scored twice, because
of the several errors by the College infield.
Behind the two-hit pitching of Jim Rowe, the "B" League boys trounced a hapless
Balboa Ten by the unheard score of 19-0.
