CREATIVE ARTS Choir Band Creative Writing Drama Art The sound of an old brass tuba drifts into other classes and other ears and then settles down golden into our lives. A single golden note from an old brass tuba lies there, amidst a hodge-podge of creative sounds, nestled down and kept only because things like that are meant for keeping. Things that come from within us return there. When we partake of someone else ' s creativeness, that genius becomes a part of our own. When we give of whatever it is within us that makes us know exactly how to hold a paint brush, or play a clarinet without a squeak, or turn a phrase of poetry, or assume someone else ' s character, we give freely of the soul that distin¬ guishes man from the lower animals. We give of these in order to create within other people. The emotion that results from a striking color combination, or a scathing glance, or fifty-four choir voices sound¬ ing as one, is the reward that an artist gets for hav¬ ing given of himself. Through the fine arts, the sig¬ nificance of little things is adequately established, and the vastness of great accomplishments becomes over-whelming. Suddenly nothing is too small to be¬ come a part of the finer nature of the human being.

VOCATIONAL Vocational Office Training Distributive Education General Business Typing Bookkeeping Stenography Mechanical Drawing Industrial Arts Home Economics A frightfully vast world lies out there, limitless, waiting for this gen¬ eration to reach out its hands and begin to build a world of enduring quality. Our system of production, with its foundation laid in a par¬ ticularly American kind of mechani¬ cal ingenuity, demands that ma¬ chines be made and operated, and repaired. Our system demands that typewriters be pecked upon until the late night hours, and reports filed in little green cabinets so that the business world will be orderly and efficient. The world out there demands that socks be mended and families raised, and children sent to school to be prepared for a world that they must build. And life goes on, with all men finding that there is a place for their talent.
