Lois Wilfong, Mrs. Turner, Bobby l est, Margaret Robertson, Louis Weaver Copy, write-ups, dummy, “bleedings,” proofs. Just a few samples of yearbook lingo. Daily, sometimes nightly, throughout the entire year, the work on the annual publica¬ tion goes ahead. Hundreds of portraits and identifications, and thousands of words of copy must be checked and rechecked. This probably is the biggest job in the school. The yearbook office with its facilities as a storeroom, library and all-around work¬ shop has become almost legendary to the staff. This small room, sometimes in a hustle of activity, sometimes lonely and quiet, is truly a proving ground for practical Journalism. THE PIONEER First Row, Left to Right —Louis A. Weaver.

Extra-Curricular Activities We find many parents and friends who still do not realize the place of extra-curricular activities in the school. Often we find that such activities are looked upon as fads, frills, or just plain foolishness. The chief purpose of the school is of course to extend knowledge but something more than formal book-learning seems to be necessary in the complex world of today. Thus the modern school strives not only to impart knowledge but also to train in citizenship. That is why the num¬ ber of extra-curricular activities has been constantly increasing at Andrew Lewis in recent years. Our extra-curricular ac¬ tivities help us in this way. For example, the aim of the student yearbook is to present one year of educational history, interestingly written, well illustrated, and permanently bound for future reference, giving in word and picture the complete story of the school year. This work, which is done by the students, requires much study. Collecting and preparing the material, as well as raising the necessary funds for financing it offers very valuable training to students in many lines. Similar to the yearbook, the student newspaper informs students, faculty, and patrons of Andrew Lewis’s many weekly activities and achievements. This activity provides practical experience for those students who wish to study in the Jour¬ nalistic field. Also at Andrew Lewis we have a club, the main purpose of which is to promote scholarship. Other purposes of the Beta Club are the cultivation of fellowship among students; the encouraging of high standards of morality and conduct; and the instilling of such ideals of loyalty, integrity, and courage as will develop worthy leadership. The honor of membership in this club is awarded only to those students whose records in their respective classes have come up to specific standards. This chapter at Andrew Lewis is playing a great part in promoting these ideals. The International Student Society, a club of the French Department, strives to promote international friendship and world peace. This club also provides an opportunity for the French students to correspond with pupils in other countries. The Library Club at Andrew Lewis serves as a medium of instruction in the use of the facilities of the library so that those who work in it may help others to use it to better advantage. The Monogram Club is one made up of athletic boys who have won monograms. This club tries each year to leave some gift that will be remembered by the student bodies of the following years. The symbol of the Girl Reserves is a triangle within a circle. This represents the aim of this club. The three sides of the triangle stand for development mentally, physically, and spiritually. Wholesome social activities are the chief features of the Club. At Christmas the members make it a practice to do some definite charitable deeds. The Hi-Y Club aims to promote the same ideals of Christian character among the boys as the Girl Reserves are doing among the girls. Another important group at Andrew Lewis is the Home Economics Club. It supplements work already discussed by another speaker. One of the newer clubs at Andrew Lewis is the Projection Club. Although new it is nevertheless becoming one of the most important clubs in the school. The Visual Education program has a three-fold purpose at Andrew Lewis. It helps in classwork by illustrating class-room projects on the screen. It serves as entertainment for the student body. It trains pupils to operate the machines connected with visual education. The state is recognizing the value of this work and is encouraging the extension of this field in connection with public education. The state next year will provide many films and other equipment for the visual education program at Andrew Lewis. With these activities as illustrations I have tried to point out how important they are at Andrew Lewis. They are necessary to bring out individuality and special talents among our students. The chief advantage of extra-curricular work is that a student has the opportunity to choose what appeals to him. —Martha Jane Jerrell Anne Rowell works in the Projection Room ■ { 91
