However, we are glad and proud to say that such is not the case. 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 at Johnsburg. 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. QF FF QF QF Q? QF F CPE- If S, 15. E: ' S. R X X.

lik 'ls e- do fl -D do X .R-. S' QA. 8 -i "i. 2: 'iv 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 part. 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 prerequisite. 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.
