Tlns year the Camera Club was made up of members who vaned greatly m the extent of their
knowledge of photography Mr Buell the club's sponsor admxtted that some of them probably knew
more about photograhpy than he Others knew little more than whlch end of the camera to point at
the subject of a picture but the club axmed to help all members learn how to take process and appreci
ate good pictures
Most of the regular club tlme was taken up wxth demonstratnons of the processes of photography
such as developlng prmtxng and enlargmg The club members were permitted to use the darkrooms
after school to process the1r own pictures The club saw exh1bxts of good plctures to help them learn
to take artxstxc shots The pictures of one exhxbnt were taken by a local man who owns some fme equip
ment and who won several hundred dollars in contests with some of the plctures Also shown to the
club were sxxty fave prmts from the natxonal contest held annually by the Eastman Kodak Company
for hxgh school photographers That this year's club has been makmg progress IS evxdenced by the
fact that a few members entered this year's Kodak contest.

Three gleaming Capitol planes took off like silver birds into the bright sun on the morning of April
4. "Purple,""White," and"Pioneer" were the adopted names of the beautiful airships. Inside these
60-passenger planes were 180 very excited seniors from AAHS-going to Washington and then New
York. The rest of the 202 students traveled by train. Nervous but excited chatter could be heard
above the roar of the airplane motors, and only a few faces turned green while in the air.
After months of work, the students were eager to see the beautiful monuments and high buildings.
The boys and girls had a great educational experience and had the opportunity to practice democracy
on this trip. The first valuable experience was the opportunity to work together. Boys and girls
planned projects to earn money for their trip. The girls sold candy and held rummage sales. Blue-
books were sold during exams. Boys parked cars for the U. of M. football games, and they had a paper
drive in the early weeks of spring. Friends and relatives of this group had their homes decorated
with pretty wreaths at Christmas, and they purchased boxes of cards for their holiday greetings from
members of the Washington Club This year Christmas was a very special holiday for the group.
The spirit of anticipation led the club forward successfully. Companionship and a sense of respons-
bility were achieved during the months of working together. As the money was accumulating in the
general fund, excitement was growing deeper inside the hearts of every member.
The club sponsors worked the hardest of all to guarantee a wonderful trip. They spent many hours
each day writing letters, making connections, doing bookkeeping, and attending to many jobs in order
to keep things running smoothly. The results of their ambitious work were completely successful.
Miss Pauline Zoller, Miss Lucille Lundgren, and Mrs. Julia Bohnsack added zest and fun to the girls'
club on the trip, and Mr. Howard Thompson, Mr. Ben Reed, and Mr. John Allison enlivened the trip for

Visiting the famed monuments and institutions in Washington gave the students a deeper sense
of appreciation for our great nation. Mt. Vernon and its beautiful grounds enthralled the club. Arling-
ton Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Lee Mansion were interesting places visited
the first day. Most impressive of all was the beautiful Lincoln Memorial.
The F.B.I. and the Bureau of Printing and Engraving were two places that seemed to interest
everyone. Seeing all that money and knowing how it is protected left a deep impression.
Flying into New York April 6 in the evening was an unforgettable sight. Millions of tiny lights
bade us welcome. LaGuardia Airport was a place of wonder in itself, and we felt small and inferior
at first. The days spent in New York were filled with magic. This is the Big City we had talked
about, here wereBroadway and Times Square, and here were the people. "Life With Mother" was the
first play we saw on Broadway. The following evening the club attended the musical comedy "Where's
Charley?". Everyone will remember Ray Bolger's version of "Once in Love with Amy" and the seven
encores he took.
A tour of Manhattan covered Chinatown, the Bowery, Harlem, the Battery, and various points of
interest. During free time many students visited the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty,
Rockerfeller Center, or spent the hours shopping. Subways and taxicabs were exciting means of trans-
Friday evening the group dined at Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe night club.
On the evening of April 10 it was time to board our planes and leave the skyscrapers and people
The "Purple," "White," and "Pioneer" circled above the city. We regretted that our visit was over,
but we were ready to leave for home. The buildings reached out to wave goodbye-and inside our
hearts we hummed a tune: "although we wander far, Ann Arbor High, our hearts will turn back to
you."-Washington Club memories will always linger with us as we recall the fun we had on our
