Even gym classes can have their dreary days. These students in Mrs. Patsel’s Sixth period gym class try hard to answer all the questions on their six weeks’ test. All eyes are on the ball as the team in possession watches anxiously hoping they will win a point. All attention is on the serving corner during a practice of the Evens Volleyball team. The Evens work hard in order to win the Volleyball Tournament, which is played between the Odds and Evens. Girls in the physical education classes at Andrew Lewis learn many things. These girls practice forward rolls as they become skilled in tumbling. The rest of the class await their turn. This ball is the busiest thing on the field as it is kicked back and forth between the two teams, during an exciting soccer game. Miss Martin’s classes play soccer after the correct techniques have been demonstrated. These girls are practicing the correct method of serving a birdie in badminton. This is one of the many things the girls learn in physical education. During the spring session, the girls in the gym classes practice the correct techniques of archery. Here Cynthia Butts, Carol Bowden, Carol Matthews, Nancy Donaldson, and Shelby Lipps carefully sight their target. Modern, ballet, and tap dancing are taught the girls in Mrs. Patsel’s gym classes. Here the girls run through the pliesse of ballet. Shuffleboard, like any other sport, requires practice. Carol Moore, Cynthia Butts, Carol Mathews, Nancy Donaldson, Shelby Lipps, Carol Bowden, and Sally Rife practice during their physical education class. 4 . 86 }

PHYSICAL EDUCATION Along with the training of the mind should come the physical training of the body. Every student whether boy or girl, takes at least four years of physical education at Andrew Lewis. During these years, a boy learns how to keep physically ' fit with exercises, the correct techniques used in football, the intricacies of basketball, the art of tumbling, and the coordination of track. Boys who are especially interested, and who have more than average ability are encouraged to try out for sports outside of classes. A great number do, and become the football, basketball, and track stars of Andrew Lewis teams. Girls have a great variety of outdoor and indoor sports from which to choose. Of course, they participate in all these sports in their physical education classes but they, too, are encouraged to enter into sports of their choice outside of class. The Girls’ Physical Education Department offers hockey, basketball, volleyball, archery, tumbling, tennis and modern dance. A number of quieter indoor sports such as ping-pong, shuffleboard, and badminton are also offered. Tournaments are held and champions announced. Girls staying after school for sports are awarded points for their participation and after a certain number have been acquired they are awarded a letter. Physical education classes at Andrew Lewis are intended to develop skill and coordination of mind and body. Along with these important developments, team spirit, good sportsmanship, and enjoyment of the game are ideals which are stressed greatly by instructors. Physical education is essential to the needs of every student. By taking part in various activities of this kind, every individual becomes a more versatile and well-rounded person. There is a mad scramble for the ball as members of a boys’ physical education class engage in a game of mass basketball. These boys are practicing the tech¬ niques of line blocking for the rough and ready sport of football. “One, two, one, two,” sounds a chorus of masculine voices as this group per¬ forms daily exercises. Calisthenics play a major roie in physical education classes.
