The Mumford Action Program
(JN April 16) is a community-
wide program formed to help
-Mumford retain its high stand-
ards and status among Detroit
high schools. Working in cooper-
ation with this group, the Stu-
dent Council has completed work
on a student code of conduct. This
code, drafted by a representative
committee, covers such areas of
discipline as dress, smoking, loi-
tering, tardiness, c a r r y in g of
weapons, etc.
Infractions of the code will be
punished by a system of de-
merits leading to such discipli-
nary action as late hoUrs and
suspensions. Copies of the code
will be distributed to all stu-
dents at Mumford and its feeder
_junior high schools.
This code is the result of many
long hours of hard work and
thought on the part of the com-
mittee. If properly administered
and enforced it can eliminate any
discipline problem which could
possibly occur in the future. The
code emphasizes the fact that the
student body is an aroused group
wanting Mumford to maintain its
excellent reputation.
As a senior, proud of his school
this writer asks the students and
the community to support the
work of MAP and the Student
Council. Let us help them con-
vert their plans and dreams into
reality and help Mumford to re-
tain its greatness!
