Simplifying Our Techniques . . . MATHEMATICS is a science of exact relationship. ALGEBRA, GEOMETRY, TRIGONOMETRY, SIMPLE MATHEMATICS, all im¬ portant, make up the mathematical field at Andrew Lewis. Mathematics is the exact science of comprehending the laws handed down to us by some of the greatest scholars known to our generation. Eighth grade, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are struggling with one mathematical problem or another. As they advance to a higher level, the struggle becomes more difficult. Even though students may be exceptionally brilliant, or intelligent, they always find some¬ thing to look forward to, something unexplained, something unknown for some eager young person who wishes to accomplish a little more and to give to the generations following a better understanding of mathematics. The study of mathematics teaches us to solve our financial prob lems, our necessary problems, and thus, leads to a happier more confident life.

Developing Skills . . . Robert E. Kinzie Agriculture James E. Peters Paul 0. Schwartz ndustrial Arts In the upward climb, INDUS¬ TRIAL ARTS classes are equally important to the boys who are not interested in agriculture. In SHOP students learn how to cautiously but confidently use a myriad assortment of machine tools. In shop 1 and 2, participants spend six weeks in some of the following areas: elementary drawing, elec¬ tricity, cabinet making, lathe work, jigsaw work, tin can projects, ce¬ ramics, and printing. They are a prerequisite to shops 3 and 4. In shops 3 and 4, students may choose any one of these areas and stay in it for a longer period. This gives the time for making larger and more worth-while projects, such as coffee tables or end tables. In the hobby shop students make hand projects such as leather pocket- books and wallets. To those lacking a half-credit, it is a boon, because either half year may be taken without prerequisites. In MECHANICAL DRAWING, students learn the fundamentals of drafting in preparation for jobs in the fields of engineering, construc¬ tion, manufacture, and design, or simply for use in woodworking, or other hobbies. All in all, the major aim o± shop is to teach students to use their hands as well as their minds, for their greater enjoyment and em¬ ployment.
