We reflect through the pages of this volume those days of responsibility in the service of the school we love. We have tried to describe the significant events of our school days at Armstrong, to picture the students, the spirit and life of our class, and to awaken, perhaps, the wistful tenderness of cherished memories. If in time to come, the review of these pages will serve as inspiration and bring to mind rernembrances of our school days, if this record of our efforts will be the background of a picture of memories, then our goal will be achieved, and we shall be content.

BROWNE, Editor-in-Chief Acknowledgements , , ln the years to come, when the REFLECTOR is brought back to life, and we glance thru these history making days at Armstrong--we can never thank enough, all whose services helped to publish this book.

I might paint the picture, but I am not a painter-except when it comes to my own face. Nevertheless, the canvas, oils, brush, and all the facilities for doing the job are at my disposal. Hence, I shall attempt not one but three portraits of the class. My first canvas begins with September 1943. We see five hundred and seventy-nine bright-eyed students enrolling in high school for the first time. How eager cmd happy their faces are! But if one is a deep observer he can see that something overshadows that almost complete enthusiasm. Yes-a war! Even though young-not more than fifteen or sixteen-still they feel the effects of the war. Many are participating in the various war time activi- ties. They go "all-out" for the bond drives. Some are doing outstanding work in the various school clubs. Carlene Greene represents the Advisory? Councilg Leroy Foster, the Cadet Corps, Iames McPhail, Choral Club, Marian Fowler, the Honor Society, Helen Williams, Louise lones, Rosa Means, Girl Scout Organization. There are so many outstanding students in the other clubs that the canvas cannot quite hold them all. Merry faces are peeping out of the comers. They reflect the fun they are having at the new girls' party given by the Excelsior Circle. Yes, in spite of a war, these young spirits can not be kept down. Thus, the first portrait is completed all too soon. The time may have been fleeting, but the impressions and fun the class of '46 had their sophomore year are indelibly imprinted on their minds. The second portrait presents the same class as juniors. The spotlight in the portrait is thrown on Marcel Couze and Marian Fowler, winners of the Howard award. After having spent one complete year at high school, the Class of '46 is better able to understand the true significance of a high school education. They have a new purpose and a new outlook on school life. So ends the junior year and the second portrait. The final portrait of the same boys and girls who saw the complete war years in high school is a touching one. The portrait has a number of new' faces. These faces are a little older than the average senior's, but the differ- ence is not too apparent. These are veterans who have come back to com- plete their high school education. Some of the veterans are George Taylor, the Third, Frank Cozzens, Claude B. Allen, Iohn W. Burns, Malcolm Tillett and Charles Hooper. George Taylor did splendid work in the music field while in the Army. In the foreground are the members of the Honor Society. They are Roscoe Thomas, Marcel Couze and Mary Leake. Looking closely we see Gwendolyn Beasley and Laura Gambrell, the stars of "Katinka." Near them are other outstanding members of the cast. These are Iames Bradford, Iune Norford, and Iames McPhail. Beatrice Woolfork also has a prominent position, for she was "Miss Armstrong." If this final portrait could speak, it would tell you- Chains are not always formed by materials, Sometimes they are formed in the abstract, This is the chain built of learning, That time keeps forever intact. This chain has culminated between the years, Growing both steadfast and true, For the most important years of our life, We spent them in leaming from you. Each little link stands for something, Every day being encouraged anew, Is it no wonder that we feel blessed: When, Armstrong, we had you. -Mary Portia Leake. 6X.9C!0GX.7C 9C.1D6X.3 GXJLG QI3Ci9QIWC'S9QZ3Ci9?3fi9 . . 4 .'

Graduation was over, school was closed, and the vacation had just started. I had decided to enter the Armed Service for a few years. I enlisted and likedg it very well, so after my first 3 years were over, I enlisted for three more. After those three were over, I soon enlisted for three more. I thought after those three were over, that I had enough of Army life and would become a civilian. I was discharged and returned to Washington. ' As soon as I had retumed, I tried to look up my school chums. This was a hard job. Most of them had started businesses of their own. So I though I would read the daily paper. To my surprise, I saw many articles concerning my school mates. The headlines read "United Nations Gets New Headquarters." Under this I saw the names of Claude Ford and Leonard Ray, architects, who had drawn the plans for this new establishment. I also noticed that they had drawn plans for many other prominent monuments and buildings. After I read this lengthy article conceming these two young men, my curiosity was aroused to find out what others of my old school mates were doing. I then noticed an article headed "Professor Marcel Couze's College of Mathematical Knowledge Has Open House." I noticed that it was necessary to have an I. O. of 199 to enter this college and that many graduates of the New Technical Armstrong High School led the registration. Reading on, I soon saw the names of the people who had been appointed to teach in the District for the year of 1956. There were many familiar names on the list. Maureen Adams, Delmar Barnes and William Brown were named to teach in the Physical Education Department: Stephen Anderson, who had received his Master's Degree in General Science, was named to teach Gen- eral Science at a local junior high school. Next, m,y eyes fell upon an article that read: "First Negro Becomes Navy Commander. Steward I-loban, who had gone to Navv Radar School and had passed with flying colors, was now a radar specialist. Then I spied the article "Francis Iohnson's Client Acquittedf' Later I read that he had become one of the best criminal lawyers in the city and ranked high with the nation's top lawyers. In the comer of the front page, I saw that Mary Leake, a Professor of English, was touring Europe. As an avocational interest, she was doing joumalistic research. Turning to the next page I noticed a column headed: "New York Symphony in Concert at Constitution Hall." Making their debuts were Gwendolyn Beaseley and lune Norford. The author commented that these young ladies had climbed the ladder to success in less than l0 years, a marvelous record for any singer. Miss Beaseley had just finished her tour' of England and Canada as guest of the King and Queen and the Canadian Prime Minister. A few days later I read in "Downbeat" that Clement Wells had just suc- ceeded Lionel Hampton as "King of the Vibes." His orchestra was driving the country mad with his groovy music: and it was still being debated whether this band or Billy Lee's band was the best. Billy's band had just run a record engagement at the Apollo. His piano arrangements were giving Eddie Hay- wood a hard push. The next article astounded me. It read: "Color Ban Lifted at Navy Yard's Drafting Department." The first draftsmen who entered this department were Iames Cousins, Earl Washington, Benjamin Skyles, Wilbert Knight, Henry Kingwood and Thomas Howard. Mr. Cousins, the article stated, was to be ct consultant on Electronics.

Leroy Foster, one ol the surgeons at Freedmen's, was to be placed in charge. His assistant was to be Emest Dixon who had just finished his internship. Nancy Loving, Elinor Amis, Helen Williams and Cora Allsbrook were to be the nursing staff. Louise Iones, a dietitian of high standing and long government experience, was to head the dietetics de- partment. While running through the advertisements, I saw many establishments whose proprietors I knew. Iames Thomton, who ran one of the most highly rated pharmacies in Washington, was branching out by building another store in Northeast. Rudolph Iones was running a very thriving shoe repairing business. Robert Kelly had a chain of ten imported-liquor and beverages stores. Donald Iackson was running one ol the largest Negro music stores in Washington. As a side line he rented public address systems. Benjamin Wims and Ioseph Young were the proprietors of the Ben and Ioe Drafting' Supplies Store. Harold Reed and Henry Kingwood had opened a radio repair and parts store. After glancing through these advertisements, I tumed to the next page, where I saw the picture of Lula Williams, prominent Social Worker. She had been chosen over many other workers by the N.A.A.C.P. to tour the South and study social conditions. She had picked Louise Daniels as her assistant. Turning to the next page, I had the surprise of my life when I saw the 1956 Redskin Football Team. Playing end was Ioe Dutch. And at the guard posi- tion was William Hall. Both boys had torn down the color line and in the six exhibition games, both made excellent showings for themselves. Ioe caught four touchdown passes. Hall tore up the opponents' forward wall. They were coaching Howard's mighty eleven on the side. Reading on, I saw that Iames Bradford had been named head of the Physical Education Program at the 12th Street Y.M.C.A. Then an incredible article stared me in the lace. William Collins and Harold White, local traclc stars, were making a tour of Switzerland. The last paragraph said that Harold Crocket had just been voted the city's best diver, Finally, I settled down to enjoy the comics. Emmett Lucas, famous car- toonist and comic strip artist, had two strips: Wagwood and Little Orphan' Fannie. Artist Lucas had won the National Tuberculosis Poster Afward for 1956. Having gleaned so much news of my former classmates, I decided to visit these old friends and plan a reunion. They had all kept the old Armstrong tradition by making the best of their abilities.

It was my sad duty when the deceased in question, because her life flame was slowly dimming, called me to her side, to act as a duly authorized at- torney of the Bar of Armstrong, Washington, in the District of Columbia, and I am here to inform you that this will was properly signed and witnessed in my presence, and that this statement is unalterably perfect and impeccable. Although she suffered for three years to the greatest degree, in her last hours she wrote with phenomenal wisdom, therefore, whatever bequests she makes, although they may not be the happiest selections to her beneficiaries, were made to the best of her judgment and discretion. I, Miss Class of '46, feeling the flame of my life slowly but surely extin- guishing, take time out to bequeath and devise all of my worldly goods with- out council or advice from any one. I must write fast for if the flame goes com- pletely out, I shall not be able to see and my sister, Mrs. l. M. Greedie, would, against my will, take over everything. Item 1: To Principal Gregory, all the success in the world, as leader-in- chief, in the new Armstrong Technical High Schoolg also, to the school, a strong set of struggling, scholastic, students to enter in September. Item 2: To Mrs. Iewell, 25 inductees for the National Honor Society next term and not less than l5 for every succeeding induction. Item 3: To all the tutors in the portables, there have been ample funds left to have their "chicken coops" renovated, or better still, torn down: and for Mrs. C. D. A. Brown, Section A-8 has rented for her a permanent room on the Sun Terrace in the new building. Item 4: Attention! ! Anyone in the audience who is interested in a pair of winged track shoes, size 17, will kindly contact Mr. Harold White, the owner, immediately after the program. ltem 5: S7,000 has been deposited in the school bank for travel to the other technical high schools in the country, henceforth making Armstrong one of the best with the acquired information. Item 6: To the cafeteria, we bequeath a staff of workers to do the neces- sary choses instead of borrowing members of the schools for K. P. duty. CP. S.-A few of the members of the student body are complaining of dishpan hands.l Item 7: To Mr. I. O. Adams and the other gym teachers, as far as the boys are concerned, an ,entirely new equipped "gym" with abundance of facilities. Item 8: For any member of the school who lives in the N. E. vicinity, but still in the city, we have bought two or three 30-passenger stations wagons to pick up the corner gang whose pass-words are "Going out Florida Avenue?" Item 9: To the entire sports association, many "go-get-'em knock-me-down and drag-me-out participants" to fill the gaps of the many now leaving. Item IU: Next year, the detention hall will be entirely redecorated with cushioned chairs, velvet foot rugs, snack bar and movies. This is being done for the so very many who seem to be there more times than they're in school. Item ll: To Mme. L. C. Hill, 50 enthusiastic tres bonnes eleves to carry on with le francais and likewise for Mr. Miles and his young German Herrs and Frauleins. Item 12: For the new annex of the school, a few of our architects and engi- neers, Robert Holley, Alfred Hawkins, Maurice Bush, and Stewart Hoban have gotten together to plan a most up-to-date school for those coming in. Here are some of the features-revolving doors, escalators and elevators, a roof swimming pool, a lobby for the students to study in, banquet hall and 75 mod- emizecl classrooms. I Item 13: The Cadet Corps bequeaths all its military knowledge to be used wisely next year, so that instead of bringing home the bacon you will bring home the hog, incidently, Captain Vernon Hawkins, acting as chairman, has succeeded in collecting S70U.00 through the "Better-Your-Feet Work Benefits" and this money is going to be left to better the cadets!

Item 14: To Mrs. Iefferson, another good group of historians to defeat our neighbors in the various quizes. However, were there any seniors partici- pating in the last event? Item 15: To the Torch, our beloved school paper, we bequeath a great number of new features, around seven more pages and some salesmen to boost the sale, thus making it better for everybody all around. Item 16: To Mr. Batson, sponsor of The Reflector, a new saying. In place of the old "How are you this time?" we suggest "How are you sticking?" Item l7: Since most of our students are speaking their English with an accent, meaning slang, these days and completely revising the language, we've left ample money for Mrs. Mary Leake and Doctor Odell "Daddy O" Coifey to volumnize the old tongue before it becomes extinct. ' Item 18: The boys in Mr. Websters section have constructed a new pro- gram lor him and along with this goes a 3500.00 token, too. l have the exact copy as handed to me by representative Claud Ford and it is as follows: lst period-newspaper, magazine, and funny book. 2nd period-study. 3rd period-hall duty. 4th period-Iimmie's Corner. 5th period-trig., heat, drawing, English, math. and lang. Sth period-clinic for mental check-up after 5th period. 7th period-home! The senior class voted unanimously for this program and feels that the quicker it's put into effect, the less class-cutting there'll be. Item 19: To the succeeding graduating class, God's help during the next term, and good luck. You'll surely need it. Item 20: To the new technical school, we will all the love, pride, and honor that has been part of her in by-gone years. Item 21: To the juniors, we give and bequeath all of our castles in Spain to be inhabited by them free of charge as long as these castles exist in Q: livable condition. Item 22: To the sophomores, we devise all the mistakes ever made by us. This is a most important bequest because by our own mistakes we learn more than ever comes to us any other way, and if our own. mistakes are so benefi- cient, how much more so must be those of others when they become our property! Item 23: To the freshmen, the ability to say the right thing in the right place, and a sure, concrete start to be ever strengthened through their stay at Armstrong. Item 24: To the entire faculty, who have so faithfully struggled to put in our heads what sledge hammers would fail to do, our deepest appreciation for their untiring efforts, and in the future, when we attain our heights of suc- cess, we will always look back and say Mrs. X, or Mr. X made this possible. God bless them! Item 25: And last, but not least, to Mrs. H. B. Allen, sponsor of the Senior Activities, a profound and special, "Thank you," for the work that she has done to make this, the last graduating night of the old Armstrong, one of the most memorable and cherished evenings for years to come. So sadly, but gladly, hereunto, have I set my hand and seal knowing that all provisions herein proclaimed are as unalterable as the famous laws of the Medes and Persians!

My friends, I have called you to assemble here as a solemn duty, that you, the heirs and assigns of my respected and beloved client, the Class of February 1946, may hear her last will and testament, which as her legal advisor, I drew as directed by her, immediately prior to her passing from our presence. May I, as well as my client, entreat that you receive your respective legacies in the spirit ot unseltish friendship with which they were given. I shall appreciate your courteous attention while I read this duty attested will. We, the Class of February 1946, in the City of Washington, District of Columbia, being in as good mental condition as usual, and in much better temper than usual, do hereby make this our last will and testament, rendering void and of no avail any former will or wills that may have been previously made by us during a period of temporary optimism. We have no specific directions to leave concerning our funeral, but we do hope you will come prepared to praise as well as to bury us, forgetting. the trifling faults that may have been ours and remembering only our manifold and remarkable virtues. We feel that our brilliant record and our unusual achievements will live long alter us, but we wish to take no chances. So we suggest that a tablet, on which shall be inscribed our several names and a few of our most remarkable deeds, be purchased from our estate and placed in the auditorium of the school in a position where it will strike the eye ot all who enter. And in this manner do we dispose of our possessions: Item l. We give freely and without reservations to the Iunior Class, our rightful heirs, our good luck. It made us what we are today, and it should satisfy them. In addition to this, all our privileges and rights, as well as any' notebooks, pencils, fountain pens, unfinished lollypops, and also any boys or girls whom we may have left behind in our haste. Item 2. To our good friends, the Sophomore Class, we leave our patience. It will be found useful as the only means by which they can endure the Iuniors. Item 3. To the Freshmen, we leave our little book entitled "I-low to Tell the Teachers." This book is not what to tell the teachers but how. It contains specific information as to which teachers can be blufted, which are easy and which are hard to please. . Item 4. To our dear old school building itself, we leave the peaceful quiet caused by our absence, and any apple cores, pieces of gum or crumpled notes we may have left about. Item 5. To our principal we give and bequeath a sense of relief that we have at last been graduated, pleasant memories of our two and one-half years, and a feeling of pride in any great deed or noteworthy achievements that our future may contain, realizing that such glories-if any-will owe much to his example and counsel. Item 6. To our teachers we bequeath our valuable sense of humor, without which we should have found school life painful indeed and which will do much to make it endurable for them. We also give our very kindest regards and our sincere gratitude for their untailing kindness and aid. Item 7. To the history of the Armstrong High School we bequeath our illustrious deeds and our names as candidates for the Hall ol Fame. 1l66Y.99!DGY.9LlDGX.9C.I3GY.9CvlDGEJLID6SJ CE9 QZ'3CY9Ql'Tl 1lBGS9'LIB GRJQZDGXJ 0 LZDGSPLIBGXJLIDGSJLIDGRJ CLASS WILL 2'5.f.9if..i"i1'.1.'1Z'iI CW' . Q The smaller individual bequests are as follows: Item 1. To the undergraduate needing it most we give Iames Whitemyes supply of language, which will enable the recipient to talk more and say less than any other human being. Also, to the undergraduate who is most in danger of not passing next year, we bequeath the class' store of information. along with their old notebooks and test papers which will make it easy for him to pass any test in any subject at any time. Item 2. Francis Burrell leaves some nice comfortable cushions for the seats in the auditorium. To Armstrong, some clocks that do not need to be set every morning are left by William Iohnson. To Armstrong, Winfrey Hill leaves a portable to be erected on the corner for the convenience of the Armstrong and Dunbar boys who congregate there. To the over-ambitious undergraduate, if such there be, we leave the perfect indolence of some of our class mates. Some people sit and waste time-they just sit. Item 3. To the Music Department, Rosa Burress leaves a well-equipped studio where it can practice without disturbing people who study in the auditorium. To the French Department, Iulius Cook leaves a locker full of brilliant, energetic French students. To one of the beloved teachers of Physical Education, Randolph leaves the corner store full of doughnuts. ,Otis Iohnson leaves to Armstrong his tennis shoes accompanied by a pair of nose stopples. To Earl Telfair, Berlin Dean leaves his paint brushes hoping that the hair will be renewed. To the laziest member of the Senior Class-to-be, we bequeath Lillian Brent's ambition. If it is combined with the laziness previously mentioned, the result will be normal activity. To Alice Wood and Ruth Cook, Willie Mae Russell leaves her ability. To the new section B8, Beatrice Stewart leaves her contagious giggles. To his Brother Eugene, Arthur Smith leaves his position on the football team. Item 4. To the Iunior Class we give reluctantly, but of necessity, our mantle of dignity. We realize that the class can never fill it but, since it is expected of them, our advice is, grin and wear it. Beside these bequests, we leave our best wishes to any and all who may desire them. Any property or personal possessions of ours that may remain, in addition to the items specified, we give and bequeath to the Board of Education to use as it sees fit. Finally, we do hereby name and appoint as the sole executor of this, our last will and testament, our class advisor, Mrs. H. B. Allen. ln witness whereof we, the Class of 1946, the testator, have set our hand and seal on this 29th day of lanuary in the Year of l945. c-Lggx-oc-Qgx-ocvzggx-:vc-135x-scvlaggocvlaggxggggacvfb FXQQZBCX9 A 'Q 3' X 4-It r Q6GX.7l.IbGS.JQID6X.?l!8GX,9CvIDGX..3C.lD6Y.9C,1DGX.9C!0 Ll66R2l.IDC5Y.Jl.6GX.2lfJ6LJ'L?DGXJQ.ZD VALEDICTQRY gymgggggggaf ffm' , , Mr. Gregory, Members of the 'Faculty, Parents cmd Friends, it is an honor as a representative of the February graduating class to bring to you a parting message from them. The class is happy to beegraduating at a period of reconversion rather than actual war. We are glad to leave Arm- strong at a time when there are so many new opportunities open for our young men and women in spite of the many problems that are seemingly ahead. Many of the students who have gone before us and some of these that are graduating with us never stop to think what a wealth of resources and opportunities this school offers-nor have they considered seriously these questions. What has Armstrong done for us in the way of intellectual develop- ment? How many more practical problems can we solve? ln other words, has Armstrong prepared us for the real needs of life or are we still lacking in those fundamental qualities that make for success? If we had thought about these questions long enough this is what might have been revealed. The courses Armstrong offer are very useful in themselves. They teach you to be familiar with the everyday tools of life. The tools that will enable you to move about in society without too much friction or conflicts with your fellowmen. This is what you learn in Armstrong shops. We learn to follow' instructions, read directions and interpret them. We learn to be exact, definite, thrifty, and to observe carefully. We learn how to evaluate material, choose wisely and, too, how to use our own judgment. In the classes in science we learn to apply ourselves diligently in the search for truth. We have gotten pleasure out of experimentation and we can appreciate a little more than others countless secrets of the atomic boom. Our study in Sociology has developed a better understanding of humanity. We have leamed not to blame people for all their reactions to situations, but rather to consider the conditions under which they live and their outlook on life. The world war has caused school authorities to stress more than ever the value of physical education as it has to do with nutrition, cleanliness, proper care of body and frequent medical examination and supervision. Sports have always held an important place in Armstrong's extra activities. They have taught us to appreciate fine performances on the field by our school. The careful training that our athletes have received has enabled them to secure positions and win for themselves recognition in the world of sports. The extra-curricular activities, which include all the various clubs, have been most valuable, for without them many of us would have had little opportunity to meet so large a number of the teachers and undereclassmates. Clubs have developed in us proper social attitude, initiative and the desire to become leaders. They have taken us out of our narrow group of friends and made us enjoy without discrimination the student body. F rom the faculty we learned that education and its enriched background of culture and study are essential to a successful career. From the faculty, too, we have learned dignity and value of punctuality. We cannot begin to tell of all the things we have learned in the different classes, but this we can say-from every class has come valuable experiences which will help us in our future struggles. l gyggggcggyGx-Jcvlggx-ocvfggxvoc-19Qxvocviggm-acvigggx-19 5 QIBCXQQZBCXQ I i' Cv-iQ6519C2965-DC-1565-JCvlaggbivfakvbivlaGEYDC-565-JC-Ib Q13cX9Q1Aoc'x9Ql':C"x9Qfuc'x9Q!'bC'x9Ql':c'x9Qi':c'x9Ql'l VALEDICTORY f.',1'i,,1,fj'f,,1'f,2,fQf"'i'1""' , , You see then if we stop to think seriously about the questions, how greatly indebted we are to Armstrong for an awakened consciousness of the world of thinking and doing. And now, teachers and principal, we appreciate your sympathetic inter- est, understanding attitude and the urge to go on. To you, parents, we are grateful for your leadership, guidance and sacrifice. The sacrifices were great and many, but we shall try never to let you regret having made them. In saying farewell to our undergraduates may we say that it is an honor to be a member of a senior class. For they possess dignity, poise and a higher level of mental achievement. Be sure you possess these qualities before attempting to occupy our responsible places. May you be our worthy successors. Our best advice to you is-don't try to bluff, don't waste time, but get all the knowledge you can. And now, members of the graduating class, we too must part. Although we must go separate ways after tonight, may we always be joined in heart and in spirit and in memories of our days at Armstrong. May good fortune attend us. As we are about to graduate from Armstrong, let us determine always to find time to learn something good. Again let us determine to make our future reflect credit upon the school, home and our country and may we never forget that it is our responsibility to so fashion our lives and conduct that with deepest appreciation we will be able to say that Armstrong did do much in preparing us for the real needs of life. Mr. Gregory, Members of the Faculty, Parents and Friends, the members of the February graduating class joyfully and sorrowfully say, Good-bye.

New and outstanding books in all fields have been ordered for the library collection, par- ticularly the Negro books. Scientific, technical, musical, and historical magazines are housed in the reading room where pupils have easy access to them, One of the main objectives ol art instruction at Arm- strong is to develop good taste and discriminating judg- ment in the pupil os a pro- ducer and as a consumer. The scope ot instruction in- cludes art crafts using various media: paintings in oil, water- color and pastelg scratch board compositiong mural painting, and greeting-card design. Q Auto and Sign Painting The course in painting cam- prises work in three broad areas - auto painting, sign painting and house painting. Students are encouraged to specialize in the particular area lor which they have the greatest aptitude. Auto-painting includes work in spray-painting, lacquering and enameling. House painting covers ex- terior and interior painting, decorating, color mixing and wood finishing, Class Activities A was nea..:vuJu.puf1a.fvn4u:n.pu.fe-fun.: .impure Juneau.:-u4n.pu.:c..fn.puyu.yu4 Aviation appeals to many boys. At Armstrong, the pupil will he trained in aircraft and engine mechanics under in- dividual attention of the in- structor, He also receives in- struction in mathematics, draw- ing, and science as related to the trade and Civics, English, safety and physical education. Q Shoe Repairing The course in Shoe Repair- ing gives instruction in the construction and repair oi shoes and a thorough working knowledge oi the care ani operation of modern shoe- repairing machinery. A stu- dent finishing this course is prepared to engage in the repair oi shoes in any modern shoe-repair shop. Q Sheet Metal Work The increasing use of sheet metal is one ot the character- istic developments of the ma- chine age. Sheet metal work' ers make and install hundreds oi articles fabricated from thin sheets or plates of metal. The boy considering sheet metal as a career must have an inclination to do mechanin cal work and have the ability to do neat, accurate mechani cal drawing. Good health and eyesight are also necessary. Class Activities A nav Gufeavleafea-2a:5. :s?:-heirs:-:lo Q Sign Painting Sign painting offers instruc- tion in show-card lettering, poster design, window letter- ing and general commercial sign and display Work. Q Mechanical Drawing Mechanical drawing is one of the basic courses at Arm- strong. lt covers the use ol tools and materials lor the performance of drafting funda- mentalsg the use and reading of mechanical drawings: in- formation about drafting occu- pationsg machine drafting: sheet-metal draltingg electrical drafting: and architectural drafting. Q Machine Shop The course in Machine Shop is designed to acquaint the pupil with materials, tools, and processes used in modern me- chanical industries, The ele- mentary parts of the course furnish opportunity to acquire some knowledge of materials and a moderate amount of skill in the use and core cf the more lrequently used hand tools. , ,, .1-i4L..l Class Activities I I Utdillinery The hat has played a varied role in the history ot dress. Women's hats are unique in that they may be draped, re- novated, or tailored out ot all types ot material, includ- ing discarded garments and household articles. The reno- vated hat takes on a new appearance, because the girls learn designing as well as copying. A number oi Arm- strong girls have served as apprentices in millinery shops in Washington, D. C. Q Automotive Maintenance The widespread use of au- tomobiles and trucks has re- sulted in the development oi the automotive maintenance industry. It is the job of the auto-mechanic to repair, ad- just, and replace damaged parts on cars and trucks and to keep the cars in good run- ning order so that they may be operated safely and ec- onomically, In the larger garages and service stations auto-mechanics may specialize in one or more phases ot the work. The purpose of the automo- tive-maintenance course is to train all-around mechanics who can make repairs or adjustments to any part of an automobile. Q Related Drawing and Blueprint Reading The ability to read draw- ings, blueprints and sketches quickly, accurately, and eas- ily is the tirst ability that the technician must acquire, no matter what phase ot indus- trial life he hopes to take part in.

Webster, a physics teacher, began a course in engineering lor seniors in Sep- tember l94-4. lt was a splendid idea, for it gave our school the distinction ot saying that it was the first senior high school in the District to oiler such a course. ln the course are tive subjects making a coordinated program. They are trigonome try, applied mechanics heat engines, indus trial processes and mechanical drawing, each ol which is related to the other. For the boys of the first class the course proved most effective. With the exception ot two boys who are in the Armed Services, all ol them are attending colleges that offer courses in engineering. Most ol them advise the boys of this years class that those taking the course should avail themselves ol every opportunity as the graduates have all lound the courses most beneiicial. rua-.401UI--1..1-.fuznfu.,-'na-nfmzuluzu-fur..yuanhz.lf-.anna-nys.:--:murmur ruff.:-.:u1..,-.. ,uae-1--.fur-.1 04. .4--. ,Hanf- .4--.yu 9101- .,- .fa .4---Ju-loan:-1.4 The present class began their work very enthusiastically.
