Growing Physically Gaining Poise . . . • • • Mrs. Virginia Houchens Mrs. Betty Jo Patsel Miss Jimmy Martin Students, striving toward a higher standard of living and advanced learning, find that they need greater bodily endurance. The body, as well as the mind, grows day by day and needs to be working constantly. Through the pressing need for stronger bodies, the PHYSICAL EDUCATION department has been established. Physical education is a means of bodily development through various activities which are selected and used in the classes with regard to value in human growth, mental de¬ velopment, and behavior. It is a particular phase of the educational program which aims to improve the physical fitness of the girls, encourage interest in sports, promote good sportsmanship, and develop respon¬ sible citizens for tomorrow’s society. Providing experience along with other opportunities in the curric¬ ulum, physical education is im¬ portant in helping each student develop skill in the different sports including basketball, tennis, hockey, volleyball, badminton, and shuffle- board. In order to develop poise, dancing has been included in the program. Fulfilling its purpose to set high ideals, form good habits, and healthy attitudes, the physical education department prepares the student for her place in the world and helps her to set high standards of living which will be of benefit to her as an individual, a citizen, and a future leader.

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.

Developing Sportsmanship . . . As the student strives onward and upward, he often tires of struggling and seems to lose his physical en¬ durance. If his body has not re¬ ceived the proper development, the climb to the top will be impossible. Therefore, the body of each and every high school pupil needs to be developed to its fullest extent. This is made possible through high school PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES. In these classes the boys develop themselves both physically and mentally, learning to take the losses with the wins, keeping in mind always that ‘ ‘ When the One Great Scorer comes to write against your name, he writes not that you won or lost, but how you played the game.” The three main sports which are participated in by the pupils are FOOTBALL, BASKET¬ BALL, and TRACK; but, during the year’s course the athletic direc¬ tors also manage to give the students a cross section of many other sports including tennis, volleyball, wrest¬ ling and boxing. Behind all of these sports and athletic events there is one primary aim, the hope of BUILDING a STRONG AMERICA through STRONG CITIZENS. Beauty! Life! Gracious living! Gainful occupation! all enjoyed by these strong citizens, however, may be wiped out in one brief moment. To prevent these and similar tragedies, the DRIVERS EDUCA¬ TION DEPARTMENT at Andrew Lewis was created. H. M. Copenhaver W. C. Crawford C. Verner Crush Edwin Harless H. L. Johnston
