It has a great influence on the students in developing their scientific and creative abilities. Interesting speakers were brought to the meetings and various movies were also shown. Several Roanoke College professors lectured as well as executives from industrial plants. Field trips to places such as General Motors Show of Progress, and the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company stimulated interest and broadened knowledge. The club also participated in a number of social affairs. They were tri-sponsors of the Christmas Dance. They boosted their treasury by sponsoring a Halloween Booth at Municipal Field. Another money-making project was selling programs at the football games. ■ 2 { 118 }

They began this year’s activities by attending a wiener roast given by the FFA. In October they had a barbecue at Roanoke County Woman’s Club and sponsored Hobo Day, traditional event for the FHA. Each year at Christmas they bake cookies and this year they were taken to the Mercy House where the girls presented a program of Christmas carols for the patients. In February, the Fashion Show was shown on television and later given at the Roanoke County Woman’s Club. The girls also honored their mothers with a tea and fashion show. The Rotary Club members were guests at another fashion show in April. The student body eagerly awaited their assembly in May, when the proud club members modeled their original creations. One of the favorite events of the year is a picnic the last day of school with the FFA at Bedford Lake. The FHA brings together many students interested in working toward better home and family living as well as increasing opportunities for the development of leadership and participation in a democratic society. ■Cf 117

SCIENCE FAIR The Bi-Phy-Chem Club is sponsored by Miss Leslie Watkins and is affiliated with the Junior Academy of Science and Science Clubs of America. The most important project of the club this year was the first Salem Area Science Fair. It was held February 20 on the Roanoke College Campus in the Physics, Chemistry and Lab Theater Build¬ ings. Of the ninety-four exhibits entered fifty-seven were by Andrew Lewis students. The purpose of this Science Fair was to create more interest in the sciences in both students and the general public and to give students an opportunity to exhibit their projects. Any high school student within a twenty-five-mile radius of Salem was eligible to enter. The divisions of exhibitions were Eighth Grade General Science, Ninth Grade General Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I The judging of the eighth and ninth grade exhibits was by J. D. Schumacher of American Viscose Corporation, A. B. Camper of Roanoke City Schools, and Andrew Murphy of Roanoke College. For the other three divisions, Dr. Dorothy Montgomery of Hollins College, Dr. D. L. Kinnear of V. P. I., and Dr. George G. Peery of Roanoke College were the judges. The awards presented were based on creative ability, scientific thought, thoroughness, skill, clarity, and dramatic value. Certificates of award for the three best exhibits in each division and a gold medal for each first place winner were presented. The top exhibit of the fair won an all-expense-paid trip to the National Science Fair at Purdue University for the exhibitor and his teacher-sponsor. Out of the sixteen awards, Andrew Lewis proudly took nine. In the eighth grade, Joe Logan received third prize. Jimmy Butts and Charles Damewood took first and third places in the Biology Division. In the division of Chemistry, Peggy Jean Senter received the first place award and Alex Gardner the third place. Andrew Lewis completely walked off with the Physics Division as Billy Jo Johnson took first, Florence Robey second and Paige Gentry third. To end the day right, the trip was won by Billy Jo Johnson with Miss Watkins accompanying him. Billy Jo Johnson first place winner in the Physics Division, exhibits his wind tunnel. It demonstrates the principle behind the “lift” of airplanes. The first place winners of four of the five divisions get together to share honors and compliments. Left to right are Peggy Senter, Andrew Lewis Chemistry Division; Charles Wosaba, William Fleming, Eighth Grade Division; Johnny Williams, Ninth Grade Di¬ vision; and Jimmy Butts, Andrew Lewis, Biology Di¬ vision. Florence Robey, second place winner in Physics Division, explains her ex¬ hibit, a tensiometer to David Little and Jessica Kittinger. This little in¬ strument with the big name is used for measuring surface tension of liquids.

Left to right are Paige Gentry, third place in Physics, Alex Gardner, third place in Chemistry, Miss Watkins, Charles Damewood, third place in Biology, and Joe Logan, third place in Eighth Grade Division.
