Meet Your New Student Council...
Mr. Charles McClain, new pre-
sident of the Student Council, is a
native of San Antonio and a gra-
duate of Brackenridge High School.
While at Brackenridge, Charles
was a member of the student coun-
cil there, as well as treasurer of
the choir and class president in
his sophomore year. At St. Philip’s
Charles is a liberal arts major and
hopes to continue his education in
one of the medical fields.
When asked about his plans for
the Student Council next year, Mr.
McClain stated that he hopes to
get permission and financial sup-
port to enable the school to enter
a float in the Battle of the Flowers
Parade in the 1971 Fiesta Week
activities. Mr. McClain sees stu-
dent apathy as the biggest problem
here at St. Philip’s, and believes
that the students need something
they can all work on, talk about,
be interested in and look forward
to. “When there is something going
on, the Student Union is full of
people, otherwise there is no one
there,” was Mr. McClain’s obser-
vation. He feels that this year’s
“gripe session” helped because it
gave the student council a chance
to explain what they had been
doing and because is resulted in
the granting of permission for the
students to play cards in the stu-
dent Union Building.
If he could make one major
contribution to St. Philip’s, Mr.
McClain would like to bring in
“more important students to liven
up the school spirit.”
Miss Barbara Rose, next year’s
Student Council vice president, is
a native of Port Arthur, Texas,
and graduated from Lincoln High
School there. In high school Bar-
bara was a member of the Future
Homemakers of America Club, the
library club, Senior Misses, nurses
aid club, and was president of her
class in both her freshman and
sophomore years. Here at St. Phil-
ip’s Barbara is majoring in pre-
social work and is a member of
the yearbook staff.
Miss Rose feels that there are
not enough social and recreational
activities for the students at St.
Philip’s. She would like to see more
ping-pong tables, some pool tables
and other recreational equipment
added to the Student Union, and
more school dances and talent
shows added to the school calendar.
As a Student Council officer Miss
Rose hopes to be able to assist the
students in getting their complaints
heard and acted upon next year.
If she could leave the school with
one attribute it would be “togeth-
erness.” Barbara sighted the case
of freshmen students who did not
pay their class dues, resulting in
the cancellation of the sophomore
prom, which is traditionally spon-
sored by the freshmen. “The stu-
dents just don’t seem to care,”
was Miss Rose’s lament. “They
need to get together on things.”

ST. PHILIP'S “FAMILY"
HONORS DR. C. W. NORRIS
AT SPECIAL ASSEMBLY
The Professional Development
Committee, under the chairmanship
of Dr. D.T. Ling, and the Minnie
Stevens Piper Foundation, spon-
sored a special program and re-
ception to honor Dr. C.W. Norris,
on Sunday, March 15, at four
o’clock. The program was held to
give formal recognition to Dr. Nor-
ris on his being nanv_d a Piper
Professor of 1970.
The invocation by Mr. Leonidas
Watson preceded a solo by Mr.
Timothy Green, a freshman at St.
Philip’s. The statement of the oc-
casion was made by Dean Murphy,
followed by comments by Dr.
Clyde R. Nail and the presentation
of the award by Dr. Wayland
Moody, the President of the San
Antonio Union Junior College Dis-
The theme of the program was
cited in a quotation which appear-
ed on the printed program: “Civil-
ization is kept alive by what peo-
ple do over and beyond the' daily
task; by those who rise far above
the letter of the law to its purpose
and spirit, who do things they are
not required to do, who go the
second mile; who bear other peo-
ple’s burdens, who set standards
for themselves higher than any-
one else would dare set for them.”
—Joy Elmer Morgan
A reception for the faculty and
guests was held in the student
Union Building immediately fol-
lowing the assembly program.
The Catholic Students Center at
San Antonio College is making pre-
liminary steps in the organization
of an ecumenical group to serve
both campuses of the San Antonio
Union Junior College District.
Under the direction and guid-
ance of Father Louis Fritz, a re-
presentative group will meet on
Wednesday, March 18, for the pur-
pose of organizing the goals and
requirements of such a group. It
has been proposed that, by fall of
1970, a nucleus group of ministers
and priests, representing five dif-
ferent religions, might be formed
to administer to the religious needs
of the St. Philip’s campus. This
could be accomplished by allotting
one day a week to each religion,
on which day the ministers of that
group would be on campus for
consultation, conference and other
These plans are still in the em-
bryonic stages, but much is hoped
for in their fulfillment.
The annual Town Meeting, spon-
sored by the Texas Manufacturer’s
Association, will be held at St.
Philip’s on Wednesday, March 18.
In the past these Town Hall
Meetings were held in the evening
making it difficult for many of the
working-day-students to attend.
This year, in order to accommo-
date all students, there will be two
assemblies, with special guest
speakers at each, one in the morn-
ing and one in the evening.
The panel of speakers at each
assembly will be composed of
businessmen from the San Antonio
area who will discuss local prob-
lems and situations of common in-
terest to the community. A ques-
tion and answer period will follow
each assembly, and the audience
is encouraged to participate.
All students, faculty and friends

tions. it's a rough life!
