THE LEWIS LIBRARY CLUB encourages the reading of good books and helps to widen the influence of the library to make it truly the " heart of the school " Motto: " A good book is the best of friends ' ' The Lewis Library Club was organized as a separate group for the first time this year. Its membership is made up of those students who work on the Libra ry staff and others who are interested in books. The purpose of the Club was to widen the in¬ fluence of the library and make it truly the " Heart of the School. " The Club has held regular meetings on alter¬ nate Thursdays in the Reference Room of the Library. It sponsored two assembly programs during Book Week, November 12-20. On the night of November 23, eight members of the Club were guests of the Kiwanis Club of Salem, where they gave a bird ' s-eye view of the library to the business men of the town. In April the Club sponsored another assembly program in com¬ memoration of the 500th anniversary of printing in the form of a pageant, " The Making of the Dictionary. " At Christmas time the Club had a Christmas tree party, and in the spring a weiner roast. The Club publishes monthly " The Book Worm, " a literary publication dealing with the library and new books. The Library Staff: Sixteen students work from three to five or more hours a week in the library. They tile building passes, put books on the shelves, record books borrowed on readers ' cards, clean and dust the shelves, mend books, type, etc. They are not paid in money for their services but reap a rich reward in the knowledge gained through the association with books, and the routine of operating a library. Many, through their experiences here, decide that they want to be librarians when they grow up. OFFICERS Frances Bayse.., Geraldine Minter Virginia Wood..

Especially busy has been the Program Committee, planning interest¬ ing programs for each meeting. These programs consist of devotions in French, lives and works of French authors, dia¬ logues and short plays in French and French folk songs and games. Besides its regular meetings, it has had several additional activities, including a Christmas party, an assembly program, a dance given in cooperation with the Jefferson High French Club, and a gar¬ den party in May. ii

' s PREPARE FOR USEFUL SERVICE IN THE COMMUNITY In these days, dangerous in their clamors for highness, speed and luxury, one needs to re¬ mind himself fhat increase of possessions, whether of property or power, does not insure progress in satisfaction. This comes from the unfaltering pursuit and service of truth, beauty and goodness in everyday life, and from help¬ ing on the happiness and prosperity of our fellows. To work in that for the advancement of the community, state and nation is the large inclusive aim which animates the Future Farm¬ ers of America. The social unrest, the agricultural discontent in some parts, and the disappearance of the love of labor as the source of joy in life, all raise the inquiry: Are we on right lines in education for safety, prosperity, and happiness? Without doubt, there is urgent need for transfusing the spirit of the daily task on the farm by high ideals and standards. Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens, the most vigorous, the most indepen¬ dent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to the country and wedded to its liberty and interest by the most lasting bonds. The Future Farmers of America must help to make life worth while by great, satisfying pur¬ poses in the lives of the plain people, which will find their expression through efficient labor for livelihood, the love of learning and the will¬ ing service of humanity embodying the true vocational spirit. " Learning to do, Doing to learn, Earning to live, Living to serve. "
