feeta Glub LOCAL OFFICERS David Thornton. President Evelyn Taylor Smith. Vice President Mary Agnes Plybon. Secretary Charles Whitmore. Treasurer In October, 1932, the first charter of the National Beta Club was registered with the State of Kentucky. In the fall of 1933, Dr. John W. Harris, of Spartanburg, became secretary-treasurer of the organi¬ zation and installed several chapters in Spartanburg County, S. C. By the close of the 1933-34 session there were nine clubs with a mem¬ bership of 89. In August, 1936, the original charter was terminated and the organization rechartered under the laws of South Carolina. Under the leadership of Dr. Harris, the work has broadened from year to year. At the close of the 1940-41 session there are chapters in fourteen states with a total membership of eight thousand. The primary purposes of the Beta Club are: The cultivation of scholarship and fellowship among students; the encouraging of high standards of morality and conduct, and the instilling of such ideals of loyalty, integrity and courage as will develop worthy leadership. The honor of membership is awarded only to those students whose records in their respective classes have come up to specific standards. Since September, 1936, ten groups of students have been installed as members of the Andrew Lewis Beta Club. These groups give a total membership of one hundred and fifty. Of that number twenty-three will graduate in June, 1941, and twenty-one will remain in Andrew Lewis to carry on the Beta Club work next session. Of the one hundred and fifty, sixty-one have attended college or university. Five have taken commercial courses. Five are trained nurses. One is a technician. Seven are married. The rest have gone directly from high school into the various occupations in the community. Their positions include stenographers, tellers, journalists, electricians, heads of departments, musicians, government employees, pharmacists, cashiers. Two have remained in the home, where they are indispensable members of their own households. A study of this record renews our faith in Beta Club ideals. We believe the organization is meeting a long-felt need when it recognizes and persistently strives to reward excellence of achievement and character in our young people. Carrie M.

Treasurer It is through organizations like the F. F. A. that the problem of defense can become real. There are excellent opportunities in this organization to study the vital needs for common defense. After all, agriculture is still the basic industry of our country in times of peace and war. The future farmer has an opportunity to study the problems of defense on a practical level and in a real situation. America needs better farmers as an integral part of any well-planned organization for the common defense.
