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 )

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 }£«•

Mo me Economics and Jndustrial Jrts- Crcativc Jnstinct A Typical Home Economics Class There are many highly intelligent people who are not considered scholars. The study of foreign languages, history, poetry, art, and music makes no appeal to them. In their minds and souls, the creative instinct is very strong. They love to do things with their hands, they enjoy seeing the finished product of their labor. This type of woman enjoys making good bread, baking cakes, decorating homes, designing and finishing becoming costumes, even planning formal dinners and banquets. This type of man enjoys tearing apart and rebuilding anything mechanical. The instinct that was destructive in his babyhood becomes constructive in his manhood. He delights in making airplanes, houses, automobiles, furniture and ships. Our school has two departments—Home Economics and Shop—whose purposes are the culti¬ vation of these creative instincts. The maintenance and improvement of family life through its educational program is one of the major purposes of the Home Economics department. Some problems which girls study in this department are family relations: how children must cooperate with each other and with their parents to make a success of the family. They study family health as affected by food, clothing and daily habits of living. They study child development, touching only lightly, of course, upon child psychology. One study that is very important is the family budget. Estimating the income and studying wise buying contribute a great deal to the family’s happiness. All of the course is well balanced by giving careful study to recreation and use of leisure time. In recent years, our Home Economics department has kept in touch with young women and helped -sy{ 66 }•
