The panel was composed of two m e mb e r s of the three1 uppe r classes in the school and Kent Creswell acted as moderator. S e n i o r s on the panel were Lois Thayer and Don Flax, juniors were Kay Murphy and John Bell, and s o ph o m ore representatives were J o e l l e n Stokes and Thomas Gunsauley. The students h a s h e d over the composition of the stu­ dent senate, a proposition to lengthen the 40-minute lunch period to an hour, and the merits of the recently in iti­ ated detention system. Parents and teachers in the audience joined in the dis­ cussion from the floor with suggestions and que s t i ons . Most P T A ' e r s agreed the meeting was a stimulating one and plans are in the mill for a similar program at a future session. Panel m e mb e r s felt that the s t ud e n t senate should have representatives with a longer tenure of office and should have more authority. Anote of dissent was sounded over the first come-first serve method of scheduling social events. The s t ud e n t s and school officials agreed that it would be h e l p f u l to lengthen the l u n c h period to an hour to help alleviate cafeteria jams and also g i v e s t uden t s a chance to make it home and back for meals. With the new detention sys­ tem, i n i t i a t e d mainly to combat t a r d i n e s s , panel members suggested that new rules be explained fully to the student body before they are put in effect. Jamestown and vicinity this week reels in the grip of the annual fever spread by tour­ nament basketball. T h i s is t h e big year for Greeneview, fans are hop­ ing, The Rams knotted for the league title and Tuesday night knocked off Bowersville Jefferson 73-59 in opening- r ound play of the G r e e n e County tournament. Playing before a capacity c r owd at the Xenia Field Ho u s e , Coach Fred Long's charges left little doubt from the start of the ball game, It was a Ram victory all the way. Greeneview jumped off to a 14-7 first-quarter advan­ t a g e , led by 38-23 at the half, 63-32 at the third quar­ ter mark and kept on pouring in p o i n t s through the final frame. With the Jefferson defense collapsing around big Jerry Hill, Ram center, Forward Jack Franklin collected the high Greeneview total of 19 points. Hill still managed to sink 15. Marshall poured in 17 for the Tigers. This means the Rams will meet the winner of the Ce- d a rv ille -Y e llow S p r i n g s game - - s l a t ed tonight--on Saturday evening at 8 o 'clock. Bryan High's B u l l d o g s are favored to take that contest. The I nd i a ns of Cedarville, however, aren't counted out too soon. That team, carry­ ing the solid backing of its fans despite a poor showing on the season, has the poten­ tial of running hot in tour­ nament play. Bellbrook, which defeated Greeneview in the G r e e n e C o u n t y League and forced the l o o p into a tie, is ex ­ p e c t e d to wind up against the Rams in the finals.
