Senior Choral Club It has been said that music washes away the dust of everyday life. Believing that the knowl¬ edge and appreciation of music has a definite value in the life of an individual, the Roanoke County School Board made provision for in¬ struction in music at Andrew Lewis High School for the first time in 1934, with Mrs. G. G. Peery in charge. This year the Music Department has an enrollment of two hundred and twenty-five students. The group presented a Christmas pageant in December and a sacred concert in May. The Senior Choral Club gave a patriotic pro¬ gram in November ; a Thanksgiving program ; sang for the S. C. A. Convention in Roanoke ; broadcast over WDBJ ; appeared before the P. T. A. and, as a climax of the year, gave the operetta, “Miss Cherry Blossom,” in April. Andrew Lewis High School Band Much progress has been made by the Andrew Lewis High School Band since its organization in 1936. It has become an important part of the school, adding pep and encouragement to our athletic teams and increasing our school spirit. Under the excellent direction of its capable lead¬ er, Mr. L. Christensen, the band is adept in march and concert music. We are proud of our band and think it deserves the interest of the school and community.

Hi-Y Club Mr. J. E. Oglesby, Sponsor In January, 1938, the Hi-Y reorganized with an opening banquet, entertaining practically all the members. At this banquet the following officers were elected : Ralph Ramsey, President; Bob Carper, Vice President; Paul Solaski, Secretary, and Bob Saul, Treasurer. Mr. Oglesby is faculty adviser. The true aim of the Hi-Y is to create, maintain and extend, through the school and community, a higher standard of Christian character—a cause far nobler and more challenging than any to which the knights of old pledged allegiance. Salem Chapter F. F. A. Mr. E. A. Harding, Sponsor The Future Farmers of America is the national organization of farm boys studying vocational agriculture in the public high schools throughout the United States. Through the leadership of these boys we may expect a new agriculture—an agriculture lighted by science and organized to demand an equal share with industry in the country’s general prosperity. Rural leadership is the outstanding need of the hour. It will continue to be the greatest need in the future. Our leaders, who live up to the F. F. A. motto, cannot fail in this task. “Learning to do-—doing to learn—earning to live—living to serve. "

French Club The French Club, of which all French students are members, has spent an interesting and in¬ structive year. The officers for the year were Dan Smiley, President; June Hoover, Vice President; Dorothy Lewis, Secretary-Treasurer, and Miss Wood, Faculty Adviser. In December the club held a French tea at which the members received the names and addresses of French students studying English, with whom they are corresponding. During the meetings the club learned French songs and the members presented several short plays. Art Club Mr. William Wellons, Sponsor The love of beauty and the ability to see the beautiful in life around us definitely adds to the joy of living. Feeling that the Fine Arts should have a definite place in our High School, we ventured to organize an Art Club this year. While our meetings have been few and our progress for this reason perhaps a little slow, we have at least enjoyed working and watching our creations take on material form while still reflecting the deep colors of a soul. It is our sincere hope that this venture will prove an idea planted in receptive minds and that the classes to come after us will take up our palettes and add bright colors to a dull canvas, knowing we made a sincere beginning.
