The A Cappella Choir, the largest singing organization, is a merging of liberal arts students and conservatory students.
The tour this year took forty of the sixty-six members to New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. They left April 5 and arrived back on campus on Easter afternoon.
"Come, Jesu, Come" was the number selected for the Bach Festival.
The Activities Board promotes all social functions on the campus-setting up the rules and acting as the calendar committee. It has suffered a stormy administration this year. Although at first glance the personnel would seem a conservative one, a few proposals which will take effect next fall have shaken public opinion to a new height. Perhaps the popular acts of this board have been hidden in the blanket of opposition to measures of "reform in order to preserve". The latter have included the change from Monday to Friday night for fraternity and sorority meetings in order to provide a broader basis for all college functions, to tear down the "four-and-a- half day" attitude toward B-W., and to better scholastic standards. Another proposal is reorganization of club meetings for a better day and limitation of evening meetings. Both of these are in the experimental stage this spring, and in the fall the revised Social Calendar which was presented to the student body in March will go into full effect.
The Activities Board has probably one of the biggest headaches of the campus to contend with-that of setting up the social calendar. Its administration is always a stormy one and much credit must be given to the participants.
The faculty members are appointed by President Wright and the student members, who are also Social Chairmen for their classes, are appointed by the executive committee of their classes.
Arranging the social calendar included planning campus activities and establishing the rules- and regulations for all social functions on campus-a duty always open to comment.
An important committee of Student Council, the Activities Board schedules all social functions at B-W and sponsors much outside entertainment. Members of the board invite anyone who feels there is not enough going on to visit Thursday meetings and suggest solutions to the over-filled calendar.
The Administrative Board is the legislative and executive body of the Student Assembly. It is composed of representatives elected by the various student organizations and constitutes that organization through which the student body acts. It controls the affairs of student life, and is the connecting link between students and faculty. The Board meets regularly once a month and at these meetings enacts the business which has been brought up for transaction. The monthly meeting of the Student Assembly usually follows the Administrative Board meeting and the President reports to the assembly the business transacted by the Board. The Student Assembly is vested with the power of referendum and recall and thus may act upon matters passed by the Board which are unsatisfactory to it.
Anime Etc. Club is a brand new club that started up in February of 2006. Since we are new, we haven't been able to do all of the things that we had wanted to… yet. Our purpose is to promote many forms of Japanese entertainment on campus for free to all who come. Some of the activities include watching anime, playing Dance Dance Revolution, Super Smash Brothers, Soul Calibur, and other video games based on Japanese origin. In the next year, we hope to expand our activities to drawing anime, possibly taking trips to anime conventions, role playing, playing more Japanese-based games, and watching Japanese movies. There is really no form of membership to the club, you can just come to the meetings that are held weekly, though meeting times are subject to change next year. You don't have to be knowledgable in anime, just come, sit back, relax, and enjoy what we have to offer.
Art Attack: The Student Art Club is the school art club on campus. We are a group that encourages students to learn and appreciate art in any way. We are people that love to see and experience the culture and passion that art brings. As a group we take trips to museums, galleries. and art exhibits/events, publicize art events on campus, hold weekly meetings to discuss group planning, and of course we have fun! The group has a regular attendance of 5-10 people (but that varies upon the event) so we have plenty of room for growth (which we welcome!) This coming year will be our first year with a budget, so we will be expanding the possibilities of what this group can accomplish in a year. Art Attack is a campus organization that has the potential to make a lasting effect on B-W. We hope to see the faces of many freshmen that share our appreciation for art!
There is a tradition at Baldwin-Wal lace which requires all full time students to attend an all-college assembly twice a month. This is frowned upon by a few rebels who dislike regimentation of any kind. The Assembly Committee plans and schedules all assemblies and in doing so tries to appeal to a variety of interests, a difficult job indeed.
These were the last of the "Aufsatzers." Of the nine on the picture but three are left-Bobby Noelker, Dan Matthaie and Walt Lemke. In their memories this picture will recall many happy evenings spent in enforcing the motto, "Hilf dem Bruder zur Demut," by means of thorough and nerve-tingling "Aufsatzes," administered with slippers, straps and bed slats. So diligently did the Committee ply their task that the faculty felt compelled to summon the "Aufsatzers" and inquire into their methods of procedure. As a result of the investigation by "Doc" and his colleagues, the nine heroes pictured above were given an indefinite leave of absence from all classes, and the "pater" in each case received the sad news in a faculty letter. Then was one of the time-honored traditions of old Wallace shattered, and to this day no "Aufsatz" has been administered to any unsuspecting Freshie.
