that helped win the third straight Boomer Conferenee championship.
Tllese one hundred and twenty'-six girls were very' mueh in evidence at

Glamorous as they appeared in their red and white uniforms. there was
more than glamor in their aetiyities. lleeorating goal posts with sehool

played a large part in hoosting the moral of the entire sehool.

Marco Polo would find the AHS history
department an ideal place to learn all about
his travels. With Miss Muncy Rece teaching
American History. and Mr. Eugene Todd ex-
pounding his knowledge of World History,
students did not lack for historical informa-
tion. Besides regular textbook assignments,
keeping informed on current events through
films, special reports. and reference reading
are essential. Emphasis is placed upon the
individual contributions of men and women
in the development and growth of the world.
The D.A.R. awards, given for the past
thirty years by the Daughters of the Ameri-
can Revolution, are presented to the two out-
standing American History students whose
work merits them special recognition. Win-
ners are selected by competitive examinations
and their names are inscribed on a plaque in
the main hall.
New doors of learning opened to many
students as they ventured into the studies of
Latin and Spanish this year. Realizing the
values gained from foreign languages, a large
percentage of AHS students are enrolled in
Latin. the so-called "dead language," is
anything but dead in Miss Teresa Hender-
sonis classes. After learning the fundamen-
tals, stories about Julius Caesar and the con-
quests of Gaul were translated. Students
with Mrs. Lillian Schenk, found that Spanish
classes could be fun as well as informative.
The Latin and Spanish medals are given
to the outstanding students in each course, at
the annual award assembly in the spring.
There is much competition among students
for these coveted awards.
The entrance to a world of much knowl-
edge and enjoyment lies through an ordinary
brown door marked "Mrs, Sparks-Library."
ln these rooms are found a wealth of books
on science, poetry. drama, history. literature.

or find one entirely for enjoyment. Sopho-
mores are taught the principles of the card
index system and how to use reference books.
Magazines are available for student interest
in current events.
Study periods are conducted in the li-
brary throughout the day and also for the
hour preceding first period. The students
of AHS are fortunate in having a complete
and well maintained library within our walls.
