Zfvt- V -www Yfvl? " I '.,,,,l , I Wg? ,4 4,1 , .:, ,Sf - A , ' ' 0 WWC Music is probably more universal in its appeal than any one factor in our cultural life today. In its best forms, it arouses our fin- est and best emotions, giving vent to them through satisfying expression. It stimulates the imagination, frees and rests the mind, up- lifts the spirit, and unifles effort. Since the influence of good music is bene- ficial to adults in proportion to their contact with it in childhood, and since we are helping the child of today to become a good citizen of tomorrow, it behooves us to consider the neces- sity of musical instruction from early child- hood to adulthood. Few children will be ultimately performing musicians, but the great mass of children should learn to listen, to understand, and to enjoy the best in musical expression. Music is being enjoyed by millions today who didn't have an opportunity to enjoy it a few years ago. It is taking an important place in our educational systems--which is as it should be, if education is to fit one to live a more happy and wholesome life. There is no sound reason why music should not be taught in our public schools, from the primary grades thru high school. As Rubenstein says, nThe study of the musical language is like the study of all other languages, he whc learns it in infancy can become a master of it, but at an advanced age it is almost impossible to acquire 1t'. The Aitkin Public Schools is making it possible for every student who so desires to take part in some form of music. In the lower grades the Tonette class offers an opportunity for very little cost and gives the student a foundation for further study. For the upper grades, below the Junior High School, there is the grade band which gives the student training, on a regular band instrument and experience in playing band music. The first and second bands comprise students from both the Junior and Sen- ior High Schools. The High School Band has just completed a very successful year in which it appeared before the Parent Teachers Associa- tion at its state meeting in Duluth and was in- vited to take part in the ceremonies honoring the King and Queen of England at Fort William, Canada. It, of course, has appeared at all athletic contests and has taken part in many programs in Aitkin. The band officers for 1958-1959 were: Flo- rence Risberg, presidentg Donald Higbee, secre- taryg Bruce Wakefleld,asslstant conductorg Bar- bara Larson, librariang Thomas Cline, sergeant- at-arms. The bands are looking forward to next year when they will move into their new rehearsal rooms in the new building. These rooms will be scientifically constructed and acoustically treated in such a way as to afford the student instruction under the best of conditions. With these improvements it is our hope that the various bands will continue to grow and pro- gress and that interest in music in our schools and community will reach a new high. Our school, being aware of the values of a musical education, maintains through its glee clubs and vocal ensembles, opportunities, for interested pupils, in the development and appreciation of vocal music. GRADE BAND The following were members of the grade band: Joyce Ellig, John Murray, Marjorie Saw- yer, Elisabeth Ratcliffe, Jean Stutleberg, Ger- aldine Dozark, Patricia Megarry, Fred Olson, Stanley Benson, Billy Hudson,Carrol1 Oien,.Don- ald Wickman, Bobby Wickman, Eldon Shaffer, Billy Lovegren, and Jack Hanlon.

This year's basketball activities stress- PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM All students showed gains in weight and height throughout the year, averaging from 7 to 12 pounds and from l to 6 inches in height. All popular sports were covered during the year with fundamentals, rules, and team play being specially stressed. Posture, weight, and height were checked regularly. Some tumbling and games of lower organization were also included in the yearly program. FOOTBALL With barely a handful of experienced can- didates as a nucleus, football practice was started a week before school began. Approxi- mately 45 boys answered the call, 35 of these showing the necessary spirit to stick lt out for the entire season. From the standpoint of actual victories the season cannot be called a success. However, from the standpoint of im- provement ln technique and determination it was a success. Football should be better for next fall since there will be 22 experienced men back again. BASKETBALL ed the teaching of the simple fundamentals of the game to as many students as possible. Prac- tices were held for all boys from the fifth grade up through high school. About sixty to eighiyboys received supervised instruction in this sport. Old basketballs have been recon- ditioned and weather-proofed and given out to about twenty boys throughout the school dis- trict. Better players are expected in the next few years. Our season's hi-lites were our two victories over McGregor High School. Twelve of the fifteen 'A'squad members will be back for competition next year. JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL The following boys were members of the junior high basketball team: Richard Kopp-L, Harold Mushel-L, Willard Lofgren-L, Charles Sanford-L, Charles Warner-L, Allan Pearson-L, Robert Kane-L, B111 Cline-L, Kay Carlstrom-L, Donald Hendricks-L, Charles Hanson-L, William Christensen-L, William Beal-L, Herbert Carlson -L. Russell Oxley and Robert Anderson also played basketball on the junior high team. Only two games were played but these boys were out regularly and deserve commendation for their playing. TRACK Track activities this year were confined mostly to physical education classes and the annual Hi-Y Pentathlon. The Pentathlon this year produced new records in all of the five events besides having a new record for contest- aries. About 150 to 160 boys tookan active part in the event this year as compared to 106 last year. Steve Kurtz, senior broad jumper, placed second in the district meet with a ju p of nineteen feet and two inches. Other entrants in the district meet were Eugene and Ralph Howq Burton Stuart, Oscar Anderson, and Duane Haney. NOON HOUR ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Our noon hour athletic PPUSTBE this Year had a much larger membership than that of a year ago. This year we had from 100 to 120 boys taking an active part ln our league competitimm The fall program consisted of a soccer league and a touch football league. The winter program was confined to an interesting eight team bas- ketball tournament which created quite a bit of enthusiasm from spectators as well as play- ers. On some days the teams played before crowds of noon-hour students numbering near two and three hundred. This spring our program was filled with a kitten-ball tournament and, de- spite the torn-up playground space, much ri- valry and competition were in evidence. The officers for this. year were Douglas Cline-president and Pete Houwman--secretary- treasurer. G.A.A. The Girls' Athletic Association is an or- ganization for girls who are interested in sports and recreation--who play for the fun of playing with others and for the game itself-- not for individual glory and reward. The dues are 25! for the year or 15d for a semester or any part of the are used to buy the numerals which are given to the girls This money ls also used for portation to the G.A.A. High year. These dues and letter awards, for participation. the club's trans- School Play Dey at the University of Minnesota in the fall. The girls who have earned 500 points will have the privilege of attending Winter Camp fweek-endl at their own expense. Those who have earned 250 points will have the privilege of attending Summer Camp for one week at their own expense. This camp period will give the girls a chance to apply the knowledge they have gain- ed throughout the year and to use the initia- tive a recreational program is supposed to de- velop. Points are given for swimming, hiking, and so forth, all of which fit in very nicely with a camp program. The colors of the G.A.A. are the reverse of the colors on the boys' awards. This is so they can be distinguished one from the other. A G.A.A. dinner is held at the end of the year for the purpose of granting the awards and of giving team recognition. There will be a Junior High and a Senior High Club. Points earned in Junior Gym Club can be applied to the numeral earned by three year's participation or 900 points - 300 of these points or ninth grade work can be carried over to Senior High G.A.A. Points may be earned through class activi- ties or noon recreation. The following points may be earned in Senior High G.A.A.: president- sports head-25 50 points, secretary-25 points, points, captain-25 points. lOO points entitles member to buy a pin Cl5dJ, 500 points entitles a member to an emblem, and 1000 points entitles a member to a large 'An. Not more than 300 points may be earned in a year excepting points earned as captain, of- ficers, sports head, and life-saving. During the past year the girls partici- pated in such sports as kitten-ball, field ball, volley-ball, basketball, ping-pong, and track to earn their awards. The high light of the year was the basketball .tournament between the Noon Recreation group and the G.A.A. The G.A.A. were the victors of two games out of the three games played. Next year, under the new program, the girls will be able to specialize in certain fields. So here's to a large membership! The officers of the Girls' Athletic Asso- ciation for the year 1938-1959 were: Jean Beall, presidentg Blanche Moore, secretaryg and Miss Hopkins, adviser.

The purpose of the organization remained the same--to encourage interest and participation in dramatics and speech and to provide funds for the speech ac- tivities of the senior high school. The members took part in six one-act plays during the year, one of which was entered in the district One-act Play Contest held at Brainerd. Their other activities included the sponsoring of candy sales, a movie, and an as- sembly program.

It is housed in a hand- some cabinet specially constructed for it. This year the license for the station was renewed under the call letters WQYHI, Lynn Ulman-opera- tor.

This spring when Tom Lar- son returned from-Europe, he presented a hand- some plaque to be awarded monthly to the patrol showing the most advancement, so it is expected that the coming year will also be outstanding. During the last year the Scouts enjoyed a week at Camp McDonald in July and a week-end at the Camp during Christmas vacation. Several attended the district camp at Itasca State Park. They also participated in several suc- cessful Courts of Honor including one at Aitkin where the local troop was awarded the district banner. During the Boy Scout Week an enjoyable Parent-Scout banquet was held. The troop consists of three patrols as follows: 'Cougar' -Murray Hunter-patrol leader, Richard Kopp, Robert Kane, Jerome Baldwin, Kay Carlstrom, Jerry Ziske, Kenneth Haugen,. and Charles Hanson are the other members.

THE TRAVEL CLUB The Travel Club was organized in 1957 and is a senior branch of The Caravan which has its headquarters in New York City. Any senior high student may join providing he or she has at least one foreign pen pal with whom regular cor respondence is maintained. Promoting world peace, becoming acquainted with people of other lands: learning other na- t1on's customs, habits, traditions, and history through correspondence--these are the main pur- poses of the club. The club has contact with' pen pals in over thirty countries at present. Meetings are held on Thursday evenings at 7 o'clock. Travel talks are enjoyed throughout the year, given by people who have visited for- eign courtries and letters are read at the meet ings. The 'Dinner of All Nations' and the spring exhibit are the annual affairs of the club. At the former, each member contributes a dish famous in some country. This year the ex- hibit was held as part of the P.T.A, Hobby Show. Letters, post cards, clippings, magazines, hand- kerchiefs, lace and plaid articles, compacts, jewelry, serapes, hats, dishes, ash trays, and monkey-skins were among the many highly treasur- ed glfts on display received from pen frlendscr secured while on trips. Betty Lou Hunter is president of the club, Jeanette Johnson, vice-presidentg Catherine Ack- erman, secretary-trearurerg Catherine Tierney, student council representativeg Opal Beauneir, program chairman. lst Row: Cline Wakefield Baker Larson Aklestad Ackerman Larson Hunter Armstead Boudreau Dahms 6 DEBATE TEAM Irene Johnson Miss Corrigan Franklin Draper .

Membership of the patrol is made up of eight regular patrolmen and the substitutes. The captain this year was Charles Warner. Allan Pearson acted as assistant captain. Members were treated to a free banquet by the A.A.A. and at the end of the year were giv- en suitable awards in recognition of their ser- vices. GIRL SCOUTS A movie benefit, a candy sale, a cookie sale--that is the story of the work the Girl Scouts have done this year in order to make possible another summer camping trip at MacDon- ald Youth Camp. These things do not tell the story of the fun and the construction work the girls have done at their meetings each Wednes- day after school. There are two Girl Scout troops in Aitkin. One group is composed of girls from the upper grades and from junior high school. The cap- tains of this troop are Miss Frances Breen and Miss Darline Huntley. The older girls make up the other troop with Miss Joyce Paul as their leader. This troop was changed this year from a Girl Scout troop to a Senior Scout Troop. This was done in accordance with the new pro- gram for Scouts over fourteen years of age. At a Court of Awards in May the Girl Scouts of both troops gave evidence of the fact that they had gained some benefit as well as pleasure from their membership. Approximately 25 rank awards were made and 48 merit badges were awarded. The officers of the troops are as follows: Troop I - Patrol leaders- Beatrice Christensen, Jeanette Johnson, Catherine Tierney, and Jane Machong Kathleen Fossen-treasurerg Joyce Akel- stad-scribe. The Patrol leaders for Troop II are Marlys Ellig, Barbara Ann Hasllng, Colleen Casey, Jeanine Hobbins, and Madelyn Ericksong Marlys Ellig-presidentg Mary Tiffany- vice-presidentg Phyllis Dahms-secretary. THE HI-LITE The Aitkin Hi-Lite is a mimeographed school paper, published monthly by the pupils of the Aitkin High School. The purpose of the Hi-Lite is to provide an interesting record of school activities and, in addition, to supply a certain number of humorous articles to be en- joyed by the pupils. Each month the Hi-Lite's attractive cover is drawn by one of the school artists. The typing and mimeographing of the paper is done in the com ercial department. BUS PATROL A Bus Patrol unit was formed in our school this year. It is made up of thirty-two members, two on each bus route. Functions of the patrol- men are to assist the driver in maintaining dis cipline, to help in loading the bus, and to flag the bus over railroad crossings. Donald Higbee was elected captain of the patrol for the yztrthe annual meeting of the A.A-A-, 8 resolution was adopted commending the bus pa- trol for its work in promoting safety. Proper awards for faithful patrol service were given by the A.A.A. at the end of the year. STUDENT COUNCIL The presidents of the six classes in jun- ior and senior high school plus one member from each class in senior high school and an elected member from each of the chartered extracurricu- lar activities in the school form the members of the student council. The work of the council is directed toward assisting with the general welfare of the school. It ls a group of student leaders with high ideals doing their very best to develop a finer type of citizenship and to assist in the development of the program of school activi- ties which will be beneficial to the entire student body. FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA In l954 the local chapter of the Future Farmers of America was organized in our school. We now have a fine progressive group of farm boys banded together in this organization, na- tional in scope, for the purpose of studying about farm problems and better preparing them- selves to become good farmers through the de- velopment of the aims of the organization. These aims ares to develop combined rural lead- strengthen the confidence of the ership, to farm boy in himself and his work, to create more interest in the choice of farm occupatio s, to improve the rural home, to promote thrift, to encourage organized recreational activities, and to interest students in vocational agricul- ture. Membership in the F. F. A. is open to any boy who will support the purposes of the organ- ization. Officers of the F.F.A. were: president - Clarence Gruenhagen, vice-president - Bryce Kelsey, secretary - Roger Wright, treasurer - Carre l Flake, adviser - F. C. Kaplan.

Mx 1 jx fx v Q COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT An examination of the courses offered in the business education curriculum shows two groups of subjects: first, those designed pri- marily to provide skills for vocation or per- sonal use, such as typewriting, shorthand, ma- chine operation, filing and bookkeepingg and second, those that deal more with the general nature of business life, such as courses in junior business training, bookkeeping, business organization and law, and economic geography. The Aitkin Public Schools offer the fol- lowing courses in the commercial fields Busi- ness Relations and Occupations, Economic Geog- raphy, Business Principles and Law, Bookkeeping Shorthand I and Typewriting I and Stenography II. Business Relations and Occupations is a one-year course required of students in the ninth year. It is an exploratory course. How to buy, how to be thrifty, how to bank, how to sell, how to send telegrams, and the value of insurance protection are a few of the topics studied. Economic Geography is a study of physical factors such as climate, soil, mineral re- sources, location, etc., and how these factors determine the occupations of the people in va- rious localities. It is taught in the tenth grade. Bookkeeping gives the pupils information concerning the various kinds of business organ- izations such as partnership and corporations together with the fundamental principles of record keeping. A knowledge of bookkeeping is of immeasurable value in aiding one to keep his personal business affairs in a systematic and orderly fashion. Bookkeeping is taught in the eleventh or twelfth years. Business Principles and Law, a practical study of business practices and organization, is offered to juniors and seniors. The stenography course consists of two years of shorthand and one year of typewriting. The first year of shorthand is devoted to learning a vocabulary and the theory of short- hand. The second year's work consists of a re- view and transcription of letters and articles. Students should be able, at the end of the yean to take dictation at a speed of from 80 to 100 words per minute for several consecutive mln- utes. The students should be able to tran- scribe the letter on the typewriter and produce a copy that the business man would be willing to send out as representative of his office. Manuscripts, tabulation and filing are also studied. Pupils are given an opportunity to type and run off material on the hectograph and mimeograph. In addition, this year, they are given practice on the dictaphone. Personal typewriting is taught to sopho- mores, juniors, and seniors. At the end of the year it is necessary to attain, at least, a speed of 50 words a minute. Business letters tabulation, copying from rough drafts, typing legal forms, how to cut a stencil and how to run a mimeograph and hectograph, are some of the items taught in this course. Students who wish to register for commer- cial work are not permitted to do so unless they have marks that prove they will be able to carry on the work. HOM ECONOMICS 'To have faith in the American Home, To make our own homes existing examples of thrift, of unselfishness, and of only that which is sweet and sincere in human lives. To help make our communities extensions of such homes. This is the introductory paragraph to the Minnesota Homemakers' Creed, as it appears in the special home economics department bulletin recently ls- sued by the Aitkin Public Schools. We have a very firm belief that every girl should take some course in the home economics field during her junior and senior high school years. The information given to the girls will be of value to them in their daily contacts,1n- terests, and responsibilities both at school and at home. In the ninth year, home economics becomes an elective subject. The girls coming into our school from the rural eighth grades are not re- quired to have seventh and eighth grade home economics courses to be eligible for the fresh- man home economics class. Because of the broad offering of subjects and interesting worth while information, we do encourage all girls to plan to take ninth grade home economics. In this field we pay special attention to the problem of food preservation. Meal prepa- ration and the serving of dinners is a very im- portant unlt. The child and his food brings, for the first time in the home economics course, the study of children in a more concentrated manner. The planning and care of the kitchen is of vital importance to every home, and the study of this unit is of vast interest. The girl and her friends enables our students to do considerable thinking regarding the development of their personalities. The clothing management and construction unit is very fascinating for those girls with an interest in clothing. In the sophomore year there are seven very interesting units of work beginning with the construction of wool and silk clothes. The selection and purchasing of clothing is of great value to all girls, as the training in this field is used over a period of a life time. In the tenth grade course we also have a unit with more advanced concentration on the problem of the girl, her fam1ly,and her friends. Health care and home nursing are of special in- terest to those girls interested in nursing, although the problems studied are of practical value for all. The food management unit gives an opportunity for not only the preparation, but the serving of meals to guests. The fur- nishing and care of the home enables every one of the girls to do a number of practical pro- jects at home and mother has an opportunity to discuss to a great extent the proposed work. Last but not least, the study of vocations re- lated to home economics gives the students an opportunity to secure pertinent information as to ways and means of earning a living in the home economics field. We also have an excellent advanced course offered to junior and senior girls who have had previous home economics training. In the fresh- man and sophomore years, in like manner, a course is offered to the girls who have not had home economics training. Our home economics is conducted on a pro- ject basis. Each girl selects the project that has some activity connected with home making at the beginning of each semester. This work is done outside of school hours and at home. At the end of the semester, reports are made and visits are made by the home economics teachers to the homes of the girls taking this home eco- nomica course. .--. .-.- 'QS' 1+-ggpgg fi rr-J' 1 " Xia ' ' , , ' , 'n'f 'N' ffl ' M '+2f+,ffCi'. of ..:,.'

In general, its purposes are educationally social rather than vocationally economic, although in the senior high lt may increasingly emphasize vocational objectives in a non-legal sense for certain students. SEVENTH GRADE A course in general mechanics covering woodwork, tin and soldering, rope, glass, and electricity units. This course is designed to appeal to boy interest and passing fancies. The class meets twice weekly. EIGHTH GRADE This course is divided into three shops. Mechanical drawing is offered to acquaint the boy with the language of the shop. This is followed by-a unit on woodwork and then elec- tricity. Again we try to stress boy interest in this class that meets three times per week. NINTH GRADE INDUSTRIAL ARTS I In this class the boys spend their time in two shops. One is mechanical drawing where we emphasize more fully the mechanics of drafting. The different types of drawing are studied, orthogrsphic, isometric, and pictorial with some time spent on tracing and blueprinting. In woodwork tool operations are stressed. A study of the uses of different woods and wood finishes is made. Projects are selected with certain operations in view which will acquaint the boys with the different tool uses. TENTH GRADE INDUSTRIAL ARTS II This grade spends the year on metal work. Time is spent on each of the following phases of the work, benchmetal lathe, forging, and sheet metal work. For the first time, we plan next year to offer a unit of metal casting. ELEVENTH AND TWELFTH GRADE INDUSTRIAL ARTS III These grades in 1959-40 will be offered cabinet work for the first time in this school. This class will work on furniture and equipment for the home. Much of the instruction in this work will be individual. Industrial Arts II is a pre-requisite to this course. ELEVENTH AND IWELFTH GRADES BUILDING TRADES This course is of a vocational nature and will be offered to a selected oup from the ST eleventh and twelfth grades who will make applb cation for the class. Work will be offered on the following units of the trade including blue print reading, carpentry, plumbing, decorating, and masonry. Industrial arts I and II are a pre-requisite to this course. 28 I AGRICULTURE Every farm boy who is interested in get- ting the most out of farming, learning the best and most efficient methods, will be vitally in- terested ln the vocational agriculture OOUPBSS offered in our school. The past few years have seen great changes in the methods and machinery used in farming. One of the aims of high school vocational agriculture is to offer information to rural youth which will enable them to keep abreast of the constant changes. Agriculture I is an introductory courseand aims to present the facts and knowledge that are vital to a successful farming business. The various crop and animal enterprises are analinm and subdivided into the different jobs which are essential in the carrying out of any farm- ing practice. An analysis of the enterprises enables the student to compare and use his information in solving the different problems on the home farms Every enterprise has a certain number of approv- ed practices. Approved practices are methods and procedures used by successful farmers. This course motivates a desire for self and home im- provement and easily makes a student ask him- self the question, What can I do to help make the home farm more profitable during my four years in high school? Opportunity is provided for appropriate work in farm practice on the home farm. The following are thefarm practice projects usually selected: dairy records, chick raising, egg and feed records, raising capons, turkey raising, sheep and swine records, bees, variety trials on crops, hybrid corn. Agriculture II gives the student a work- able knowledge of the skills associated with the crop and animal enterprises. Improvement practices can be illustrated by the following problems: balance rations, culling, caponizing, post mortem on diseased animals, rope splices and haulters, livestock judging, dairy records, grafting fruit trees, vermin and parasite con- trol, feeding poultry and sheep.

Firstly, the first six grades called the elemmr tary schoolg secondly, the next three grades, the seventh, eighth, and ninth lor High School, and then the and twelfth, called the Senior Most new pupils who enter in the ninth year or the last lor High School. called the Jun- tenth, eleventh, High School. our school enter year of the Jun- Every good school has a rating. We are proud of the excellent rating of our entire school. We are members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. This rating is the highest rating possible for any school to attain. In the state of Minnesota all of the extn curricular activities are governed by the rules of the Minnesota State High School League. The requirements are that all students participat- ing in the activities of our school must meet certain regulations and abide the State High School League. by the rules of STUDENTS AND PARENTS, MAY WE HELP YOU? The individual who works for himself and himself alone, never giving any consideration for the rights and privileges of the other fel- low, certainly is a useless citizen in our pres ent day society. A good citizen is ready and willing at all times to help insofar as he is able to help. In the same manner a good ested in helping every boy and or her goal. The Altkin Public cally is at the service of all the other fellow school is inter- girl achieve his Schools emphati- youth regardless of where they live. Our philosophy of adminis- tration has been that of service at all times and we want you to know we are always ready to help. As we look back to some of the early days of our high school we find many of our boys and girls undergoing extreme hardships in order that they might receive an education. The mod- ernization of our present generation has chang- ed the number of opportunities for our youth. Boys and girls, if you are thinking of attend- ing high school and you feel your problem is insurmountable, won't you think back to the early days, recognize the difficulty of their problems, and then I am sure you will feel you should firmly resolve to succeed with the pres- ent day opportunities. If you desire to attend high school and really are interested enough to put forth the required effort, we want you to know we will consider it a pleasure to be able to help you. We are able to find a number of jobs for both boys and girls. During the past few years there has been a State and Federal High School Aid plan through which many deserving boys and girls have been given help. This is carried on through a work program and is available only for those stu- dents who are ready and willing to work for what they get. If you are interested we would suggest that you apply at once. LET'S BE REASONABLE! Many of our boys and girls today have the idea that they will be able to be highly suc- cessful as adult citizens without securing an education. Many of our fathers and mothers to- day, unfortunately, have the idea that because they did not attend high school and receive a high school education and yet are reasonably successful, it is unnecessary for their child- ren to attend high school. Dads, Mothers, and Students, let's be reasonable for just a few minutes and compare the past with the present- When Dad and Mother were young, very fe' YOUDS people secured a high school education. Today the vast majority of our young P90P19 are Se" curing a good high school education. The boy or girl today who fails to seri- ously consider going to high school is not even attempting to be reasonable and look very obvi- ous facts squarely in the face. You must com- pete with your neighbor boys and girls Wh0 are receiving high school education. Please be reasonable and realize that you may not live all your life in the place where you now remde. When you move you're going to find new neigh- bors and those new neighbors are going to have the benefit of a high school education. You may not have difficult competition where you are now, but difficult competition is going to face you in the future. May I urge you to be reasonable and recog- nize the fact that an eighth grade education is no longer sufficient. The information and know- ledge that you receive during your high school experience unquestionably better prepares you for your future experience in life. You boys and girls who completed part of your high school training should also be reasonable and recognize the fact that the complete high mdunl course is needed. You may find a temporary job for the present. Maybe the problems you must encounter, the difficulties you must overcome in order to continue in high school, seem to be absolutely impossibleg but if you will reason logically there 1sn't any question about the fact that you will eventually decide to return to high school and complete your high school education. YOU WRITE YOUR OWN CHECK Checks are cashed at a bank according to the figures written on them. Just so is it true that the boys and girls attendingon' school will make a success of their school work in exact proportion to the effort extended by them. In the Aitkin Public Schools we place a great deal of emphasis on the development of character and personality. We feel that the greatest responsibility in the field of educa- tion is the development of an individual with a positive sense of fairness, the ability to judge right from wrong, plus a personality that is at all times not only acceptable but sought after by others. The successful student is the student who learns how to act and has common sense enough to act the way he knows he should. We welcome to our school all boys and girls who are really interested in securing an education. We find every year that there are a few who come only to play. These boys and girls are soon discovered and usually they drop out of school before many months have passed. The members of our faculty are positively interest- ed in and more than willing to help any boy or girl who will demonstrate to us that he or she is in school for business. EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IN AM RICA We are truly fortunate here in America, and particularly in Minnesota, to have an oppo tunlty to attend high school free. There are no tuition costs for boys and girls attending high school. In our school you should also know we furnish free textbooks. There are a few small costs such as workbooks, supplies,and department. fees in various subjects. All of these, however, do not amount to but a very little over the entire year. ENTERING HIGH SCHOOL FROM AITKIN COUNTY SCHOOLS Many of our fine rural schools in Aitkin County are being advanced to the rank of ac- credited schools. If you are a graduate of one of these schools you will be admitted to our school by presenting passing marks in your 10- cal marks. If you come from an unaccredited school it will be necessary for you to have lo- cal as well as state passing marks in four of the following fields: geography, English, gen- eral mathematics, general science, and social studies. If by any chance you failed to secure pas ing marks in the required number, I am sure we will be able to arrange for you to continue wth some small amount of high school work and also complete these grade subjects. Kindly see Supt. Murray and make the necessary arrangements. TO ENTER SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL It is necessary for you to have at least three credits, of which no less than two are in the constant fields of work in junior high school, before you will be admitted to the sen- lor high school. The required or constant courses in junior high school are English, gen- eral science, and business relations and occu- pations. GRADUATING FROM SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL The requirements for the conferring of a diploma from the senior high school are that you earn twelve full credits in the tenth,elev- enth, and twelfth grades. Please remember that extra credits earned in the junior high school do not apply toward senior high school gradr ation. WHERE WILL YOU ROOM? Several years ago we had a large number of students rooming in town. With the organiza- tion of bus routes this number has been de- creased. We do, however, still have a number of boys and girls who are unable to ride on a of necessity, must find a place to bus and, room in town. We ask that boys and girls ob- serve a number of practical, common sense rules which we have established for their own benefit While you are in attendance at school you are trying to learn to become better citizens. One of the first lessons you must learn is that if you are to be successful you must learn to cooperate and work with others. Every student is expected to have complete respect for and is expected to obey the requests of the people with whom they live. Students should remember that they are staying in someone else's home and they should govern themselves accordingly. In order that a proper understanding might develop between the landlady and the parents of the students all parents are positively urged to visit the landlady and to discuss problems that might arise when their children are living in the home. If you are interested in finding a place to live we will be more than pleased to give you a list of the rooms available. If you are unable to find a roommate we will be glad to help. Many times we know of boys or girls who are interested in finding a room ate. Parents should positively instruct the students that they are not to stay out later than 10:00 o'clock every night. It is necessa- ry for them to study at home. If the students do not feel the responsibility of home study, the student's success is decreased considerabh We have found that it has been necessmy Where Will You Room? - Cont'd for us to pass a regulation not permitting boys and girls to stay in the same house. We also do not permit girls to stay in homes where there are young men roomers. Unquestionably , in cases of this nature there will be difficul- ties and it is very difficult for our deans to control the situation. The Aitkin Public Schools has an active dean of girls and an active dean of boys for the purpose of giving guidance and help to the boys and girls who are attending our school. Parents should make it very clear to their stu- dents that they are expected to obey the regu- lations laid down by the school and to also obey the directions of the dean of men and the dean of women. Visits are made to the rooms of the boys and girls and any condition not meet- ing the approval of the deans must be correctal Our deans are at all times working for the benefit and the help of the students. PARENTS - COME IN AND SEE US If more of the parents of our students would make a special point of visiting our school, many of the incorrectly conceived ideas that some of our parents now have would be cor- rected. We urge the parents of all of our stu- dents to visit the teachers who are directing the work of their children as, through the meet ing of the teacher, many times a mutual under- standing is developed which will help the stu- dent, the parent, and the school. CHOOSE YOUR SUBJECTS WISELY 'Choose your subjects wisely.' If you enter our junior school in the seventh grade, you are expected to plan your course for the three years in junior high school. If you en- ter our school as a freshman, you are 'expected to plan the subjects you are to take in the senior high school. It is possible, of course, to change your plans, but a good builder has a definite plan. A good student plans the sub- jects he expects to take and, by so planning, saves confusion in the junior and senior years. It is difficult for upperclassmen to go back and take subjects in the lower classes. Many times it is unwise to try and follow a particu- lar course, but for your convenience we are presenting suggested groupings. Certain of these groupings are to be followed as they con- tain required subjects for particular voca- tions. It is well to plan your work with a broad background of subjects. Please remember we are anxious to be of assistance in the se- lection of your subjects and we want you to consult with us. COLLEGE PREPARATORY English.
