Vlfhot Journalism Does or the
High School Student
Starting in ye good old days when the town crier announced the news hy word of
mouth and continuing down the ages, journalism has increased in popularity until at the
present time it occupies a place second to none in the making up of the school curriculum.
'l'o say that journalism does not benefit the high school student would he a base false-
hood, for who can say, after finishing the course, that he has not learned quickness of divi-
sion, good judgment of character, and clearness of thought in an emergency. Of course the
teacher of Journalism does not expect a literary genius in all her pupils, but she expects to
teach her pupils to he not only xvell versed in literature, hut also to he schooled in the ways
of the business world hy reading' and understanding the Cream of current events Contained
in the daily newspaper.

anyone to masterfthat is punctuality. An article in journalism that is not on time might as
well remain unwritten, for the press vvaits for no person whether he he president or office

"Because there are thoughts in a girlls mind deeper than laughter, because there are
hidden yearnings in a girlls heart, because there is a thirst in a girlls soul to know God
and His goodness, the high school Girl Reserve Club has been organizedf'
All over the United States there are girls who are endeavoring to lift the standards
of high school girls. These girls, realizing that an all-round girl should have the three-sides
of her personality developed, have come together in Girl Reserve Clubs, with programs de-
veloping the health, knowledge, and spirit of girls.
Knowing that a healthy body makes a clear mind, the Girl Reserves have put before
their members a health code. Also there are hikes, swims and best of all, camps for the
development of a joyous healthy nature. These implant in tl1e heart of a girl the desire
to keep her body healthy, through work with other Girl Reserves.
During the year, a Girl Reserve has the opportunity to attend at least three knowledge
programs, which are well planned and interestingly presented. When one is a Girl Reserve,
it is a joy to learn.
The purpose of the Girl Reserve Club, "To lind and give the bestj, shows more than
anything else the desire of Girl Reserves to develop the spiritual side of their nature.
These three aims are expressed as one in the Girl Reserve code:

L oyal to friends

E arnest in purpose

R everent to God
V ictorious over self
E ver dependable
S incere at all times.
