THE Leaders? Leadership. You hear the word everywhere. The students of today, are the leaders of tomorrow. This is a very trite and and overworked expression not because it isn't true, but because leaders need more than mere verbal encouragement. Of all the club officers elected, student council members should be thought of as THE leaders of the school. But are they? What are the expressed purposes and goals of our council? Where is the creative thinking and the desire to improve our school, our students, our leadership? It is possible to turn this monthly meeting of students' gripes into an imaginative organization for developing true leadership, leadership that is and will be expected of us, demanded of us. This can be done by first acquiring a positive attitude toward the role of student council. To paraphrase the late President Kennedy's words, ask not what your school can do for you but what you can do for the school. Secondly, communicate with the officers of the other school councils. Organize workshops where leaders learn the principles of group dynamics; where both social and publicity chairman may extend their knowledge of how to publicize their ac- tivies effectively; where all may learn parliamentary procedure. Student representatives should lastly note that while they are developing an "alive" student council, they are also becoming "alive" individuals.
