WHAT ADAMS HIGH SCHDOL HAS DONE TO HELP WIN THE WAR
On first thought it would seem that we young people
of high-school age are not able to do much to help 'the
war effortg nor does it seem that, with our full rsbhool
c rriculum, we would have time to spend on helping to
win the war without neglecting our normal school work.
However, we are glad and proud to say that such is not
Of course the most obvious contribution to the war
effort has been the purchase of stamps. At the present
rate of sales, approximately S900 worth of stamps will
have been bought by children during this year.
This is a notable achievement, but I wonder if it
is the biggest and most important, We have done much in
other fields too. .
For instance, through the agriculture 6cH-rtmcnt.
Mr. Smith conducts Rural War production Training classes
which are not only for the boys, but for adults as wells
He conducts these classes both, here in Adams and .also
In the agriculture classes, the boys also practice,
Food Production by doing farm practice work and Junior
cow and sow testing.
The F. F.A. boys had a paper collection, through,
which they collected three thousand pounds of paper. The
4-H Club also has pledged to give its best efforts to
each 4-H Victory project.
It was the pupils of this school who campaigned the
community for the scrap drive last fall. Many of them
worked'hard and I'm sure it proved successful.
Now let's see what the girls are doing. They oere
talnly can't be sitting idle. We'1l travel up to the
home economics department and visit Miss Christiansen,
and find out.

She says, We must keep physically fit.u And we all
agree with her. In her classes we find she teaches nu-
trition food, preparation, 'hone projects, clothing,
budgets, sewing and mending. Physical education classes
for the girls are being taught by Miss Christiansen
So, we will agree that the g1rls,too,are playing 'their
Mathematics and science are important studies to
the carrying on of a successful war. This is shown in
all induction centers where men who are trained along
these lines are called. Pre-induction courses are of-
fered in the high schools as it has been shown that
the inductees are locking the fundamental knowledge of
these important subjects. The courses from now on will
be built around these studies. Then, too, where special
programs are offered, science and mathematics are a
Uncle Sam needs typists,bookke+pers, end stenog-
raphers, end our high school offers f complete commer-
cial program to train students to fill these positions.
Physicrl education and etheletics fre rlso stress-
cd more new than ever before. Too many men enter the
service whose bodies are not developed physic'lly.
Physicfl educftion, through the classes offered in our
school, helps develvp strong bodies. And etheletics
help develop quick thinking, which is needed much when
the going gets tough in the thick of the fight. Ath-
eletics and physicrl education go hand in hand, and it
is hoped thet the boys crn be helped in high schoelg so
that,when they enter into the service of their country,
less time will be needed to build up their bodies and
mind to the point where they can be most useful in com-
bat or to their country.
