Music A Class in Band, Nothing in our school affords more pleasure than our music department. It has been said that nine-tenths of the people in every community are interested in music. Music has been one source of relief from fatigue. In the great vineyards of Europe music was used for this purpose. In the “Old” South negroes sang as they loaded river boats, and traveled from place to place. Some of the most beautiful music ever heard comes from fields of labor. Our cotton fields are the home of beautiful melodies. Rest and recreation are also furnished by music. Singing will relieve the mind of worry and fatigue. Folk dances on the greens and in the great halls of England afforded recreation for all classes. May Day throughout our own country would not be popular if there were no music. Danc¬ ing, the chief recreation of today, is made possible only through music. The two musical organizations in Andrew Lewis are the band and choral club. The band gives an excellent opportunity to all students who have a talent for that type of work. Besides being a source of personal development and entertainment, it fills an important place in our community life. Civic club meetings, ball games and parades are made more interesting, and more dramatic by the presence of our band with its stirring music and its attractive uniforms. ■ 3{ 70 )

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

The town of Salem, the American Legion, civic organizations and individuals recognizing its value to the community, very generously assisted in providing the uniforms and instruments. We have high hopes for the future of our band. Nothing means more to the daily life of our school than the glee club. Someone is always on hand to play for assembly and to lead in group singing. This is a popular part of assembly programs. Whether we join in religious or patriotic songs, it’s delightful to sing together. One of the main features of the year is the Operetta. The voices of the students are tested and the leading roles given to the best singers. Much work, starting as soon as school opens, is put into this feature. The honor of playing a leading role in the Operetta is the highest ambition of some students at Andrew Lewis High School. Both glee club and band give many opportunities to high school boys and girls. Trips to Rad¬ ford, Richmond and other points in the state are delightful experiences. These contests stimulate interest and encourage continuous effort. These organizations also open up ways toward choosing a career. Those with unusual talent frequently select some field of music as a vocation. No vocation gives one a better social introduction into a strange community. No vocation or hobby does more toward assisting us in finding congenial friends and pleasant occupations. Andrew Lewis is proud of the music department. Mrs. Peery ' s Music Class Mary Agnes Plybon
