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.”

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.

Experimenting and Exploring Paul K. Coffman Miss Leslie V. Watkins Mrs. Edna M. Weeks Miss Pauline Webb General Science Biology, Physics General Science Chemistry, Biology Onward and upward on trails yet unblazed, into horizons unknown, and fields unheard of, talking their own strange language of formulas and symbols, are the SCIENTISTS, seeking ,testing, developing, working, and finally proving. Theory with no proof, then work with no sleep, make up their lives. No one group of persons has done so much for our modern civilization as have these. Boom! Crash! These are the amateur scientists at Andrew Lewis at work. The experiments that never quite work, but yet plant the roots of interest in the minds of the students. A person never reaches the height of his knowledge in science because it is always one jump ahead of him. There is always something unexplained, or some new process yet to be invented waiting for the initiative of some genius or hardworking scientist. The foundation for all higher science is GENERAL SCIENCE. It touches each of the other three lightly and establishes the basis for the more difficult. BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, and PHYSICS fol¬ low, all equally important in their various fields. The importance of each to the individual students varies as they prepare for their different fields of work. Science tests one’s intellect and reasoning ability. To understand fully the principals and to be able to use them takes concentrated study and clear logic. It awakens creative ability. Only after hard work, through study and conse¬ crated endeavor does one become a successful scientist. Mil r ml ji I ■
