Bus mess and Agriculture Mrs. Humphrey’s Bookkeeping Class The Business and Agriculture departments of Andrew Lewis give more direct training for a vocational field than both the other departments. The purpose of the Business Department is to help furnish a background for life after securing a high school education. Every one at sometime or another engages in business transactions, as a consumer if in no other way. Students of commercial subjects get vocational training through which they develop certain marketable skills which many boys and girls make use of while still in high school because this enables them to prepare assignments in other courses with greater ease. Those who plan to con¬ tinue their education hope that the drudgery may be taken out of college courses and that their technical knowledge and skill added to academic and other professional courses will be an entree to good positions later on. -Cj 68

them to become established socially and economically, after leaving high school. The Home Eco¬ nomics department strives to keep in touch with older mothers and help them to meet their needs. Industrial Art has found its place in the best high schools of today. Boys of our school are given advantages over their fathers by having the opportunity to use machinery and tools placed at their disposal in the school shop. They are instructed how to use tools correctly and to care for them. Through practice, they learn how to make articles equal in appearance and beauty to those on the markets. They study the sources of raw materials that go into the construction of these articles. They learn the value of skill in the different processes of construction. Through work in our school shop, many boys receive training for profitable occupations. Before leaving high school, they learn to use equipment and tools far too expensive for them to have purchased as individuals and yet they are ready to follow a trade which they love. Today our country is fortunate in having skilled mechanics, nurses and many other persons gifted in doing practical work. Even though our high school graduates are not classified as skilled, they at least have the foundation on which to build. The Home Economics department and the Industrial Arts department are helping our school toward the molding of better citizens. Girls and boys, who have done the work in Andrew Lewis, can better care for themselves when they go out into the community to make an honest living. —Mary Elizabeth Boone

Other subjects offered in the business course are General Business which serves as an intro¬ duction to actual business life, and Business Law which gives the rights and duties of a person when in the business world. Boys who study vocational agriculture in high school are fitting themselves to become the future farmers in our country. All of these boys are members of the Future Farmers of America, whose primary aim is the development of agricultural cooperation, citizenship and leadership. The branches of agriculture which have been stressed this year are: Crops, livestock, poultry, conservation of wild life and natural resources, and the National Defense Program. In addition to classroom activities various enterprises are carried on at home such as caring for a garden and raising livestock. These boys also make a contribution to our community by look¬ ing after the plants here on our high school grounds. Every year they participate in judging farm products at Blacksburg. Through these activities the boys put into practice what they learn at school. Agriculture students can help their com¬ munity greatly through surveys of the com¬ munity’s needs, and by showing the farmers the best and most modern methods of farm¬ ing, by donating their services to the welfare sirable occupation. —Marion Jones of the community they add dignity to a de- The Agriculture Boys, seen putting fertilizer on the grass of the school laivn. -»;]( 69
