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-
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.
The following were members of the grade
band: Joyce Ellig, John Murray, Marjorie Saw-

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
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
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.

Only two games were played but these boys
were out regularly and deserve commendation for
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
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

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

The Girls' Athletic Association is an or-

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-
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

will be able to specialize in certain fields.

organization remained the same--to encourage
interest and participation in dramatics and

contests between the three patrols stimu-
lated much activity. 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,

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.

THE SCHOOL PATROL
The school patrol controls pedestrian tum?
fic at those intersections most used by stu-
dents on their way to and from school.
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-
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
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-
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
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.
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.
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
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
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-
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.

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
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
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
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.
'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-

We may define Industrial Arts as one of
the practical arts, a form of general, or non-
vocatlonal education, which provides learners
with experiences, understandings, and appreci-
ations of materials, tools, processes, producm,
and of the vocational conditions and require-
ments incident, generally, to the manufacturing
and mechanical industries. 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
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.
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
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.
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-
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.
Agriculture III gives the student more in-
tensive training in the crop and animal enter-
prises along with a more advanced type of in-
formation. A few illustrated problems are!
growing crops to furnish balanced feedsg judg-
ing poultryg animal breeding and- pedigrees,
Mendel's lawg engineering problems, such as,
farm sanitation, drainage, water supply, barn
plansg parliamentary lawg farm accountsg forest
and soil conservation: rural leadershipg farm

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

or her goal. The Altkin Public

girl achieve his
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
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
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
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
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-
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
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
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
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.
