To begin with, the Executive consists of the President and his cabinet which is as follows: Secretary and Undersecretary of Records and Treasury. the Secretary and Undersecretary of Social Affairs, the Secretaries of Sportsmanship, the of Secretary and State, the Secretary of Yearly Publications, the Secretary of News, the Secretary of Athletics. Second, the Legislative which is composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Two Senators are chosen from Vice-Presiden- Under-Secretar- New Officers Listed Here This Is Your y t, Constitution This temporary constitution, which has been voted in for usage this year for the studentbody, is patterned after the greatest constituof all governmental tions that of the Constitution of the United States of America. This constitution fosters the three departments of govern- ment: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial, each with its checks and balances which will enable us to grind democratic ways of student life. From our religious standpoint Covenants that the Constitution we are told in the Doctrine and of the U.S.A. came from men inspired by God. We could not pattern our system of student gov- ernment after a more perfect plan. Other schools have tried to do this very thing, some have succeeded moderately. There is no other group of students nor any other place more suitable for the propreation of this type of government. We are governed in the basic principle of freedom, free agency, and cooperation. We must not fail, but must see to it that this is the shining light, the pattern, the basic mold for student governments everywhere. each state regardless of the population of the state. Their responsibility to the student body is, student government elections, student assemblies and school cleanliness. Members of the House are chosen on a population basis, one representative for every 35 citizens. Their duties are, student finances, student social activities, and sportsmanship. Third branch, which is Judicial, has a Chief Justice, and eight Judges. -- Bul-ock- n ols.
