Studying and Enjoying Our Language... English, our Language, our Heritage The minstrel, the troubador, the painstaking monk, the accurate grammarian and the great writer are all a part of our ENGLISH HERITAGE. Each has made his contri¬ bution to our language. What field can boast of such richness of background and broad interests? Even the technical science of GRAMMAR may be intriguing when we try to interpret the thought of the writer by diagraming long complicated sentences. There is a challenge in precis writing to “dig down’’ to get the seemingly hidden meaning of the writer. Then, of course, there is the opportunity and challenge for creative writing, essays, poetry, letters, stories, editorials. In the study of LITERATURE, we may look in on people in all walks of life. We come face to face with the writers, learning and appreciating their style, philosophy, feelings; we know something about their human interests, joys, sorrows, failures and triumphs. We find new friends in fiction; we learn of history in the making, of war, of building up, of tearing down, of hate, of love. In short, we learn of man, his weakness, and his greatness, and of God, the Divine. In the PUBLIC SPEAKING classes, students learn to speak clearly and effectively. The shy student soon forgets himself as he learns to speak with confidence and clarity. Clear thinking and logical reasoning are developed through extemporaneous speeches which are given by the students without preparation. This past year students gave speeches on “Polio and the March of Dimes’’ to civic clubs and other organizations. The Public Speaking classes succeed in developing poise as well as artful speaking.

Understanding People Through Their Music and Language . . . MUSIC, the UNIVERSAL LAN¬ GUAGE, is used in our social and re¬ ligious life. The CHOIRS and BAND of Andrew Lewis bring us music for many occasions, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, pep assemblies, patriotic programs, and games. This music inspires us, leads us on to greater heights, calms, quiets, and leads to ecstasy or enjoyment. The mood depends upon the kind of music or we may say music puts us in the mood. There are regular classes for CHOIR and BAND, hard work, drill, exercise, and concentration, but all of this is worth the effort to the individual, to the school, and to the community. Music is the same in any language but in order to enjoy music of other lands, we gain much by knowing the language. In the FRENCH CLASSES at Andrew Lewis, the rudiments of the French language are learned. The students learn to sing the vivacious French songs such as Alouette, Au Clair De La Lune, and La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem. Many of the old hymns and songs written in LATIN have been pre¬ served and the students at Andrew Lewis have learned to sing them in Latin, preserving the rhythm and rolling soft sounds of the words. Ave Maria, Adeste Fidelis, and Semper Fidelis are three of the favorite songs of our Latin Classes. Mrs. Nelle H. Peery Mr. Louritz Christensen Miss Dorothy Miller Miss Annie V.

St. Clair Civics and History 1 I_I L I i I I ' sj [ ' ' • 1 1 j fill j j Up Jl JflolliP Since the earliest age of civiliza¬ tion, men have been striving onward and upward, to reach the highest peaks of life. The students of today are able to study about the trials and tribulations, successes and failures, through the extensive courses offered in high school. The main objective of the courses in HISTORY is to instill in the student an appieciation of his HERITAGE and also a know¬ ledge of the mistakes of the past, so that these same mistakes, many of which caused dreadful wars, will not be repeated by the future genera¬ tions. Through the study of history, an interest is created in our present day government. The people of the United States live under one of the most democratic forms of GOVERN¬ MENT ever known to man. So it is with a sense ol pride in our tore- fatheis and in ourselves that civics is studied. All of the complexities of this modem day government be¬ come reasonably clear to the pupils who are enrolled in this course. As pupils study the relations be¬ tween the United States and foreign countries, a better understanding of the various races of the world is fostered. Through the study of GEOGRAPHY, a spirit of fellow¬ ship with the citizens of this rapidly- shrinking world is being created. This conquering of old prejudices is necessary for an understanding of the words, “WE ARE ALL OF ONE BLOOD.”
