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 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 }
