Canguage Mrs. Rice ' s Latin To master any language is to hold a key to the storehouses of civilization. Our school offers courses in French, Latin and English. The study of foreign languages has many advantages. Besides giving us ability to read, write and speak, it helps us to make an acquaintance with the history, literature and people of other countries. This is especially important, for without an illustrative background, the study of language would seem dry and lifeless. Mastery of grammar is another accomplishment brought through the study of language. Last, but far from least, is the mental discipline and straight thinking its study promotes. Tied closely to growth in thinking is development of sensitivity to language. We constantly grow in ability to grasp the gist of meaning from reading and to recreate it in new expression. Many of our students would find the English language more interesting and more delightful if they had the training of study in the foreign languages. Proof of the importance of foreign language is that in universities and many smaller colleges one or two years of it are required. If one plans to study law or surgery, Latin is of special import¬ ance. Since French is a modern language and has been used for years in international relations, we can easily understand its value. One of the foremost things that distinguish man from the lower animals is his ability to speak. - ' j{ (i t }£«•

early civilization of Egypt, Greece, Babylonia and the Holy Lands. It gives some conception of man ' s long and difficult developing story, the futility of wars with the long, unproductive years known to us even today as the Dark Ages. Then the Renaissance with the stimulating knowledge that marks the awake ning of intellect and spirit poured into an erstwhile gloomy world. Art, Literature, Science and Explorations entered into rivalry. An invention brought with all its in¬ genuity that priceless machine whose printing established the democracy of learning—an invention which might well be said to have ushered in a new way of living or the modern world. Of course, we don’t omit modern history which brings us up to the present day. Then there is the history of our own country and the establishment of our ideals in a government which is based on democracy. This idea was voiced of old by ancient Greeks and by the British in their Magna Charta and other documents, retaining from these the features that give to the individual freedom of the press, religion and speech. Our government is controlled by the individual, who by his power of franchise controls the law-making bodies. Our government protects our property from criminals, enables us to be independent of foreign countries, maintains peace and order, changes old laws in the interest of society, and protects the interests and rights of every citizen of our vast country. Isn’t it easy to see then just how the Social Sciences help the student to become an asset to his community. With a clearer under¬ standing of man’s errors and successes in his epic of achievement, we should be better able to prepare for a nobler future. —Barbara Minichan 4 63 b- M iss Moore ' s Civics Class

This being true, it seems that every person should desire to master at least one language. In our school, as in all other American schools, four years of English are required for graduation. Though the average graduate falls far short of the goal, each one has here an opportunity for learning gram¬ mar, composition and literature. All of us have a foundation for correct speaking, writing and interpretation. We also have definite and intensive study in appreciation of literature. We enjoy such games as football and baseball if we understand their fine points. The same holds true in the enjoyment of literature. Some of these points are figures of speech, comparison and contrast, allusions, and mood, or tone. The mood or tone is of the most interest for its com¬ prehension underlies the knowledge of human nature. Some literary friends as familiar to us as our classmates and teachers are Ichabod Crane, Rip Van Winkle, Poor Richard and Leatherstocking. Who leaves Andrew Lewis without meeting Hamlet and Macbeth, Rosalind and Orlando, Polonius and Ophelia and the eccentric of eccentrics, Samuel Johnson? We pass in our studies of tone and mood from the absurd tales of Paul Bunyan and Irving Cobb to sublime heights of Thanatopsis, Gray’s Elegy and To a Skylark. We have explored the mysteries of Poe and Conan Doyle. We have passed into remote, ancient and imaginary worlds with Kipling, Stevenson, Bret Harte and Richard Halliburton and Kenneth Roberts. Here are a few of the advantages gained through the study of literature: The develop¬ ment of reading abilities and attitudes, critical abilities, acquaintance with literary history, and the experience of visiting foreign lands and meeting new people through books. Through essays, poems, short stories, novels, lies we can create and live in worlds of our own. —Ronald Rhodes plays and biograpl Miss Wood ' s French 65 )
