creased noT only in classes and
Teachers, buf in The number of
sTudenTs as well. Craff Design,
Basic Arf and Advanced ArT

A decrease in sTudenT enroll-
menf in The arT courses resulf-
ed in a smaller number of

course in Their heavy schedule.

Teacher in The deparTmenT,
seemed To be opfimisfic. "The
deparTmenT ran as smoofhly as
ever, jusT on a smaller scale.
ln addiTion To Typing I and ll
and Accounfing, The Business
DeparTmenT expanded by
adding a ShorThand class. Sfu-
denfs Took dicTaTions, per-
formed drills and reading exer-
cises. Many of The sTudenTs dis-
covered Thaf This class re-
quired as many as Two or Three
hours of homework each nighf.
Emphasis was placed on skills
because sTudenTs would have
use for Them in careers or
school: Thus much pracTice

Selecfric TypewriTers. The de-

Modern and Classical Novels
were two new classes added
to the English Department. The
students enrolled read and dis-
cussed novels both in class and
individually. Reports were an
important part of these two
courses as the students re-
searched and reported on the
novels they read. ln addition to
literature, freshmen were re-
quired to take a grammar
course. This new method sup-
plied them with a solid base for
upperclass english courses.
Sr. Regina Shaughnessy was
the only new addition to the
department. She taught soph-
omore and freshmen english as
well as American and English
The overall emphasis of this de-
partment was placed on writ-
ing and reading skills to assure
better performance in compo-
sition. When asked to com-
ment, Ms. Linda Germany said,
"The members of the English
Department were dedicated
to developing a strong foun-
dation in writing skills and the
understanding and apprecia-
tion of literature." Kg
