Probably the most unique club in Davis last year was the ADVANCED SCIENCE CLUB. The club, consisting of a dozen students, was a loose- ly-knit organization, unhampered by formalities and under the capable supervision of Mr. Stokes. This group did not really function as a club, but rather an assemblage of ambitious students banded together three periods a week, for the purpose of working on their individual projects and assisting in "lab" work. The only require- ment that one needed in order to join this select group of masterminds was that one have at least one year of Chemistry or Physics to one's credit. Whenever the occasion arose requiring a meeting of the club members, Leonard Friedman presided over it, as his office of president of the Advanced Science Club demanded, but these were quite infrequent, and rare occasions. The projects tackled by these future "scien- tists" covered many and varied scientific fields such as: making of plastics and bakelite prod- ucts, compounding the various pigments, study- ing the actions of enzymes, constructing and learning about wind tunnels, and actually pro- ducing some. of the different types of batteries. The club offered to its members the oppor- tunity of assisting in the Mount Vernon Hospital and thereby gaining much first-hand, scientific knowledge through the aid and guidance, that an occasion offered, of the staff members in the hospital. It was to the credit of this fine organi- zation that out of the four students that received honorable mention, from Davis, in the noted National Westinghouse examination, all fqur were active members of the Advanced Science Club. An enviable record, to be surel " For the members of the ASTRONOMY CLUBl,f the arrival of spring was signified, not by any- thing as unreliable as the annual appearance of the robin, but by the stolid, seasonal placement' of the stars, in the heavens above. These astron- omy enthusiasts were taught to know and' be able to identify between fifteen and twenty first magnitude stars. lncidentally, Annapolis requires its midshipmen to know thoroughly at least l2O different stars, for the obvious reason that while at sea, sometimes their very lives depend on their knowledge of the heavens. The Astronomy Club members received a considerable amount of instruction from Miss Chase, on astronomy and astrology. These meetings were supplement- ed by frequent nocturnal classes, whereby the celestial heavens were more closely scrutinized. This rela- tively small club, consisting of twenty members, had as its pres- ident Dante Faticato. ADVANCED SCIENCE CLUB lTopl Row l: A. M. Hargraveg Row 2: N. Fisher, L. Friedman, M. Bael, G.
