W. Sl. FORNEY, Superintendent E. H. McCLEARY, Principal
Indiana University, A. B. Valparaiso University, B. S..
Columbia University, A. M. Winona College
DOROTHY ZIMMERMAN, Clerk.
Mr. Forney has given our school his most loyal support and has inspired
us by his own personality. His work in the administration of school
affairs has been very efficient, but his greatest service has been very
efficient in giving us a love for the best things in life. It is our sincere A
desire that Mr. Forney may be with us for many years to come.
Mrs. Zimmerman or "Dorothy" is the person Who manages the office.
It would be difficult to see how the school could get along 'without Mr.
Forney's splendid office girl.
Mr. McCleary has been our principal for three years and We have al-
ways found him fair and square in every way. He has the task of
"making little suggestions" that will help us to improve our conduct.
When not attending to this duty, he teaches commercial law, Bible and
vocational guidance. Mr. McCleary is also the manager of our basket-
ball team and has done much in promoting athletics.

THE SCHOOL BOARD
The school board consists of three prominent citizens of Alexandria
and is appointed by the clty council, one member taking office each
The duties of the board are to provide the budget for the school
year, to employ teachers, and to advise the superintendent in formulat-
ing school policies. The present school board meets on the last Monday
of each month.
During the past few years the school board has provided for the
introduction of new courses in the high school curriculum and for the
erection of our high school building. The Vocational Courses were
added only a short time ago. It is an interesting fact that in 1926 a
commission was obtained for our Junior High School which is one of the
twenty-eight commissioned high schools in Indiana.
The school board is very much interested in the future of Alexan-
dria's Public Schools and will gladly provide for any betterment or
extension which seems sound and reasonable.

Through sunny skies
O'er Woodland flies
The songbird's melody.
It drops its joys
To barefoot boys
'Neath shady canopy.
To children tell
Of elfin dell
And hidden fairyland.
Where dancing feet
And moonbeams meet
Or seas of starlit sand.
Or oft he sings
That soothe the fevered brow.
And chants the love
Of Him above
And life's eternal vow.
He asks no alms
To sing his psalms
Nor begs for charity.
But gives his cheer
To who might hear
His gay hilarity.
'Tis often told
By sages old
That smiles we give today
Will shine again
Through bloom's dark den
And drive our cares away.

A good old house-wife watched her husband get on the merry-go-
round. Around and around he went until he had spent one and a half
dollars. When he got off she said:
"Whur hev ye bin, Reuben, and what did ye git?"
Her question was perfectly proper. Her only mistake
was, the question should have been asked and the answer thought out
before he got on.
Some get on the high school course and whirl around four years,
and like "Reuben" have been nowhere and have got but little usable
for their time and expense.
Vocational boys must do some worth-while projects and get usable
knowledge in farm-life affairs. They also get English, arithmetic, his-
tory, biology and other sciences that are used in common affairs as well
as to admit to higher educational institutions.
All visit farm-houses, compare farm-layouts, livestock and gener-
al progress. All have part in local and county fairs.
Our Club Camp says, "Come, learn, play, be happy and strong."
Purdue Round-Up invites high-class achievements in production,
judging, and demonstration to compete for state honors.
Our 4-H Club members are pledged "To make the best better."
Vocational training gives usable ability to the individual and gen-
eral good to the community.
Vocational girls learn worth-while facts concerning house-making.
They have an understanding of the woman's place in the home and
community. Through their summer club work they gain practice in sew-
ing, baking and canning.
On March 16, twenty-seven new members were initiated into the
4-H Club. Several parents were present at this meeting. The initiation
was held at the high school and was given by Mrs. George Winfrey, Mr.
and Mrs. VV. S. Forney and Mrs. Kahler.
After the initiation, short talks were given by Mr. W. S. Forney,
Mr. McC1eary, Mr. Coahran, Mr. John Swindell, Mrs. W. S. Forney and
Following the initiation refreshments were served to about sixty
The 4-H Club is growing in membership and it is hoped that many
more new members may be taken in at the next initiation.
