GIRLS ' SPORTS What is Physical Education? It is a way of education through activities which are selected and carried on with full regard to value in human growth, development, and behavior. It is a phase of the total educational program that aims for the same general goal that gives purpose to all the other learning experiences of the school—the well-rounded development of all students as responsible citizens in our democratic society. Physical Education provides a wealth of experience which, along with other opportunities in the curriculum, are particularly important in helping each student to develop physical efficiency, useful skills, and to enjoy wholesome recrea¬ tion. It helps people to satisfy age-old needs, both physical and social. The girls’ Physical Education classes started their work early this year. This quotation from the September 16, 1949, edition of the Andrew Lewis News will give you an example of this: “The Odds and Evens are at it again. Monday afternoon, immediately after school, Miss Phyllis Watts and Mrs. Betty Jo Simpson (our new assistant gym teacher) started organizing the volleyball teams of 1949.” Perhaps you are wondering what we mean by the Odds and Evens. For the past two years the girls at Andrew Lewis have been divided into these two teams. The girls who graduate in an odd year are on the Odd team; those who graduate in an even year are on the Even team. These teams compete against each other in all of the major sports. The winning team in each sport receives ten points toward the Color-Cup, a trophy awarded each year to the team receiving the most points in after-school games. The year was started off with volleyball and then came her sister, basketball. Both sports were actively participated in and enjoyed by all. Next came tennis and archery. These classes were conducted both during and after school. Many of the girls loved archery, but we understand most of them got quite bruised up when first learning the techniques. Other popular members of the “Sports” family are badminton, softball, fieldball and soccer. The quieter members of the family, shuffleboard and checkers, don’t seem to want for friends either. It was the purpose of the girls’ Physical Education Department to develop poise and to set up ideals, attitudes, habits, and standards of living which will be beneficial to students as individuals and leaders. We think this has been a very successful year in the realm of girls’ sports due to the capable leadership of our Physical Ed “professors,” Miss Watts and Mrs. Simpson. 4 129 ) NINETEEN FIFTY

BOYS ' PHYSICAL EDUCATION Except for a lack of gymnasium facilities, the boys’ physical education program is tops. We have a nice floor, but it is sufficient for only about twenty boys. There are three hundred fourteen boys taking physical education this year. This is not counting the juniors or seniors. Calisthenics plays a very important part in this program as does basket¬ ball, touch football and volleyball. Volleyball is not played so much as the others but is becoming popular as more experience is gained. Boxing is something new at Andrew Lewis and is sure to take a firm stand. After a while it will become as popular as basketball and touch football. The classes are taking state tests this year to show the improvement or lack of improvement as the year progresses. The tests are on skills such as: push¬ ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and basketball. The Physical Education Department is hoping to increase the size of the gymnasium so as to be able to accommodate more students. Mr. Copenhaver is doing a fine job as director, and anyone who has ever watched a gym class can tell you that physical education plays an important role in our school activities. d i3i ■K NINETEEN FIFTY
