after the United Appeal Ccampaign very successfully, collecting over $650.00.
Few of the students realize how many small but important jobs which the Council
tends to during the school year. Loan companies, Christmas cards, school rings,
and gym bags are but a few examples.
The council also organized the Alliston trip which proved to be a highlight of the year.
In an attempt to increase school spirit, the council experimented with mixed lunchrooms,
and offered ten free dances to the students, as well as a Beatle Contest,
a Talent Show set up with the Aid of Doug Neave, and a Jazz Concert held early
in February. Radio stations were invited to come to our school, and some
Jarvisites appeared on Channel 9's "Hi Time".
Yet, these are only some of the activities which were elected Council has organized.
As this report indicates, the members had a very busy year.
Finally the council would like to express sincere thanks to the helpful advisers,
Mr. Strachan, Mr. McCann, Mr. Jewell, and especially Mr. Vance, without whose
aid and advice, many of these activities would not have been possible.
JARVIS SOCIAL AND WELFARE COMMITTEE
This year a new committee was set up under the Student Council. The Jarvis Social
and Welfare Committee replaced last year's Girls' Club and has performed many of the
jobs which were previously done by this Club. The Committee itself consists of a boy
and girl member from each form in the school and was under the chairmanship of the
Councll's Vice-presldent, Hal Martin.
The most important work of the Committee this year has been the organization and
running of the Jarvis United Appeal Drive. By means of a car-wash, shoe-shine, locker
clean-up and daily collections, a total of $700.00 was raised, an amount which almost
tripled last year's contributions.
Another important function of the Committee was the running of the Red Cross at
Jarvis. The Head of the Jarvis Branch was Inge Mittel who organized andvolunteer work
and looked after the Red Cross collection. The Success of this year's Committee was
due to the hard work of the members as well as the assistance of the Student Council.
The Committee would also like to thank Karen Hannant and Joan Robertson, members
last year's Girls' Club for their advice and help throughout the year.

Approximately 800 students from 50 high schools in and around Toronto take part in
alternate Sunday afternoon meetings at Victoria College, listening to speakers,
preparing resolutions. The meetings start in September and end with the Assembly in
January. This year we were privileged to hear such personalities as Pierre Berton, and
Joseph Hulse from Canada's Mysore Project.
The Inter-Collegiate Council for the United Nations (ICCUN) is made up of
delegates from each school, has an elected executive and meets every other Thursday. The
ICCUN embarks on such projects as aiding the Freedom-From-Hunger Campaign, which
we did this year.
The five committees this year were: Charter, Human Rights, South East Asia,
Israeli-Arab problems and Technical Assistance. Each committee discusses its subject and
each country then draws up resolutions which are debated and voted upon in the
Assembly. There is also a Committee called Ad Hoc. It discussed such problems as the
Panama Canal and the entry of Red China into the U. N.
This year we also invited students from other parts of Ontario, Quebec, and the
U.S. to participate in our model assembly activities. The Metropolitan Educational
Television Association gave us an hour long television program which we wrote and
