Vliual Crducatiost Andrew Lewis has always been a leader in bringing to the student body progressive means of learning and entertainment. A new department has been established, known as the Department of Visual Education. The purpose of this department is to render service to all departments with visual aids, whereby the student will learn primarily by the aid of the objects or materials rather than reading or listening. Visual aids are used to stimulate interest, providing visual experiences that are beyond the concept of words, and increasing under¬ standings by relating these experiences to life. The department this year has developed the moving picture, slides and film strips as accessories to teaching. The moving picture camera has been used to take pic¬ tures of many school activities in the development of an orientation program. The Graflex camera has been used to take many pictures that will be used in the annual. Andrew Lewis is a member of the Southwest Virginia Cooperative Film Association and receives two films per week, subjects of interest to the Social Science and Science Departments. A full-length feature picture is run once a month before the entire student body. Many pictures of educational and recreational interest are shown at assemblies. A Projection Club has been organized with the purpose of training interested students in the operation and care of machines, films, slides, etc. The membership includes students with free periods during the school day. These students are on call for any department that wishes the use of any machine during the day. The Visual Education Department has purchased this year a new arc-light auditorium projector, a projector found very rarely in schools, with the idea of bringing to the student body the best that can be had. The students can rightly be proud of their Visual Education Depart¬ ment, as from many recent checks there are only a very few schools in the entire country that can compare with the program and equipment that Andrew Lewis has to offer to its students.

Ite Mosutert, This year has brought a new enterprise to Andrew Lewis—that of student patrol of the halls to regulate “traffic” in the crowded corridors. It is doing much to relieve congestion and confusion during the lunch periods. The monitors are selected by their home rooms, each senior room choosing four, each junior room, three, each sophomore room, two, and each freshman room, one. Serving for two con¬ secutive weeks, senior monitors are on duty with the freshmen and junior monitors with the sophomores, in order that the younger members can profit from their experience and so that each post can have a pupil on duty at all times. To be eligible for selection from one’s home room, it is necessary to maintain a passing average. And not only is the scholastic standard considered, but also the character, disposition and will¬ ingness to serve of the individual. There are various duties assigned to those who serve in this system. First, they must keep order on the stairs. “Single file, please,” has become a familiar slogan to the entire student body. And this slogan has been one of the most important factors in making passage on the stairs one hundred per cent easier and swifter. Other duties include keeping the center of the halls clear for passage, asking those who wish to talk to move to one side, check¬ ing building passes to see that pupils who are in the halls have sufficient reason for being there, and giving information to both students and visitors. A monitor may be recognized by his attractive blue and white badge. The success of this system will depend not only on the monitors and teachers, but upon the support given by each member of the student body.

President Helen Sue Macom . Vice President Anne Lindsey . Secretary Juanita Graham . Treasurer The Girl Reserves Clubs of Andrew Lewis during the term 1940-41 have been identified more with inter-club affairs than formerly. Carolyn Craw ' ford, the Senior Club presi¬ dent, was sent to Camp Betty Hastings last June. Much help, materially and financially, was given in assisting with the Regional Con¬ ference held in Roanoke in November. A fel¬ lowship dinner was given by the Club for the delegates entertained in Salem, and their hostesses. Twenty-five dollars was contributed from the treasury to help finance the con¬ ference. More than 30 of our members attended the conference. Pauline Webb, Adviser The clubs were represented in every phase of work connected with the Sixtieth Anniversary of Girl Reserve work in America (April 20- 26). The Andrew Lewis clubs attended special church services at the Methodist Church, April 20. Each member made a special contribution during the week and designated it should be used for Girl Reserves in China. At the time of this writing the clubs are planning their spring formal during the month of May and hope it will be as successful and as enjoy¬ able as those of previous years.
