Philomatheia This rather peculiar name means science to us, and we hope it does to you. We usual- ly meet on alternate Friday nights when time leaves us completely as we shut our- selves up in a scientific world. Gazing at the stars from the observatory, seeing slides of rocks and their strange and beau- tiful formation, learning to use a moving- picture camera and projector----all this and much more have we enjoyed as part of our program this year. In the beginning we were all thumbs. We fumbled and mumbled weirdly as we tried to thread a projector. Eventually we became expert enough or nonchalant enough to show some pictures to the school. Then rushed rehearsals for our chapel and on The Day, with knees still knocking and voices still strained, we presented our scientific "Information Please,', with the Gargoyles and the Griffins competing. Betty Hosford asked questions on one side and Eleanor Knox on the other. Phyll Crocker, Connie Cross, Phyllis Campbell, Nancy Harrison and Betty Ellis did the experiments demonstrating the correct answers, while Dottie Schwiebert, Winnie Wiglesworth, Marietta Meyer and Ellen Spear were the mighty judges. Bobbie Brown is also a member of the society, but she could not be with us that day. We learned many things from this program, one being that most unfortunately one needn't necessarily play with fire to get burned, for dry ice will do the trick just as well. We had another surprise when we found that Galileo lived in the 17th and not the Qoth century! I guess we were thinking of Gary Cooper. We feel very fortunate to have Miss Tucker as our capable guide on our vari- ous journeys into scientific realms. But it would be much easier to say what Philo- matheia would be without Miss Tucker. Surely with Abbot,s line equipment and Miss Tucker we have science at its best! Back Row: Crorker.
