New Officers Reaveal Plans Advises Ashland Students

"Power to the people" seems
to be a common goal towards
which the newly elected student
council will work in the coming
year. The phrase is not meant as
literally as John Lennon
intended it.
When interviewed most of the
new officers indicated they
would like to see the council in
its proper perspective as the
voice of the students. They were
asked questions concerning what
they wish the student council to
students and student action.
Secretary Mary Davis said that in
the coming year she would like
to see more of the students
aware of what is going on in the
high school.

All of the officers expressed a
desire to have more student
involvement. Second
vice-president Paul Tumbleson
hopes "the student council will
become and remain responsible
to the people they are supposed
to represent.
The function of student
government is seen by l.esli
Peterson as being a link between

What privileges and
bligations does every young
nan have under the Selective
Service Act? To find out, he
need only visit the Ashland High
Draft Counseling Center, lo.ated
in Room 4 of the cafeteria
building.
The Draft Counseling Center
is a new institution at Ashland
High. It was started last month,
with help from the Southern
Oregon Draft Center people. The
Ashland Center has a staff of
seven students: Kevin Brown,
Scott Brown, Ty Cook, Bill Ellis,
Kevin Lewis, Brad Mix, and
Larry Taylor.
Draft counseling at the high
school level is a relatively new
thing. However, it is becoming
increasingly important. The new
lottery system calls for the
drafting of 19-year-olds first,
and thus creates a need for draft
information for even
pre-draft-age youths. A draft
board is not likely to grant any
special favors, so adequate
knowledge of draft procedure
must be available from an
independent source. The
Ashland High Draft Counseling
Center is such a source.
The idea of draft counseling
is not to persuade a person to
any stance on the war or the
draft. Draft counseling is
completley non-political. The
purpose of draft counseling is to
make tach person aware of his
alternatives under the draft law.
The Ashland High Draft
Counseling Center staff has
access to material through the
Central Committee for
Conscientious Objectors and
other national organizations, the
Southern Oregon Draft Center at
SOC, and the University of
Oregon Draft and MUltary
Information Center in Eugene.
Sign-up for counseling is at noon
in Room 4 (George's old Study
Hall), and is free of charge. The
Center's staff expresses the hope
that all students will take
advantage of this opportunity to
become better informed about
this country's Selective Service
law.

council. He also wishes for some
type of open forum, even to the
point of having shortened
periods, and then a student
council assembly.
Cheerqueen Cindi Dale has
activities in mind which will
promote more school spirit and
participation by all students.
Lesli has several wishes for the
inter-club council. She wants to
have a bazaar-type affair by all
the clubs at the beginning of the
year. She hopes this would give
the students insight into what
clubs AHS has and the functions
of each." She also wants to see
more efficiency through a
timetable. This would
coordinate the activities and
meetings of clubs to avoid
conflict, which has occurred in
the past.
If the student council can
initiate these activities- which
will bring more "power to the
people", something constructive
might be accomplished.
