lrom other schools are with us, We can't help but brag about our
glassed-in press box which lends an air ot distinction to the Field,
our two-and-one-halt-mile traclc which is the longest in the state, our
beautiful three-story electric scoreboard, equipped with loud speakers,
and our Field lights, mounted on six poles, one hundred feet high. Maybe
were smug, but we do lilce to boast about our stadium which brings
to us so many hours ol exciting entertainment.

starving boys and girls and ivvo hundred and lilty eaually hungry teachers

lood, not to mention tvvo thousand, tvvo hundred pints ol mill4.
But the Forty-tvvo vvomen vvho are pusy lor hours preparing the nutritious
meats and vegetables, the delicious salads, and tempting desserts don't
seem to mind. With Mrs. Elizabeth Ross, our caleteria manager, they
evidently tal4e pleasure in Feeding the hungry hordes, lor, though
their day's vvorlc doesn't end until three o'cloCl4, they leave the Campus

UR TECH IS A
Qur Tech is not iust academic, not iust vocational,
not just technical either. Ir is all three rolled up
into one big paclcage. We can translorm an
ugly duclcling into a glamorous Cinderella or we
can overhaul a i9QO lVlodel l' Ford into
a classy convertible. But thats not all. We can
produce anything lrom poet laureates to
secretaries with personality plus. All ot these things
aren't leats ol magic, lust the result ol Wonderlul

that we leel that we are lortunate
in our choice ol schools?
EVEN IN BOTANY classes we get a

1 DR FTI GTHE
The Drafting department has three goals in
mind, The first is to give a general education
concerning the fundamentals of drafting.
The second is to teach the language used in
the art of drafting, and the third, to
interest us Techites in entering a career of
specialized drafting and designing.
After we talce the basic course in
mechanical drawing, we have the choice
of two maior fieldsfarchitectural or
machine drafting. We are well prepared
to enter an engineering college if we
apply ourselves, for our school offers many
advanced courses. ln other words, first we
study the theory of drafting, then we
actually put our lcnowledge to worlc.
Nearly everything that has to do with
drafting, from simple-mechanical drawing
to the designing of houses, we can
learn here at Tech.
LAWRENCE MASON and Gene Armstrong are making blue-
prints, using the continuous blueprint machine. As Mr. Warren
Cleveland, Drafting department head, watches, Gene feeds the
machine, placing tracings on the sensitized paper, and Lawrence
keeps the paper straight as it passes over the drying coils.
SKILL FOR FUTURE PO ITIO
DAVID NICE is working on a set of
house plans of his own design in Archi-
tectural Drafting lll, a four-period course,
as Mr. Clarence Rosell watches him.
IN A SCULPTURE class Marcia Means Cleftb chisels a Fish in stone,
Robert Morris CrightD carves an owl of wood, and Edgar Garrison
and Nora Wildriclc worlc on sell-portrait heads in clay.

proiect ol some ol us art students

develop our talents, but we also
enioy ourselves while doing so.
ACTI E MI DS

IN VOCATIO AL
Our general shop classes prepare us lor
luture vocations. ln these courses we learn
the more intricate details ol the dillerent types
ol equipment that we use. We boys can
learn how to tal4e apart and reassemble an
airplane or an automobile, we can follow in
the lootsteps ol Ben Franlclin by learning all
about electricity,--how to wire a house, to
put into good worlfing order anything from
a toaster to a deep freeze, and to repair
and install a television set, we can learn
about the newest linotype machines and the
newest methods ol printing lor our Rrint Shop
is one ol the best-equipped high school
shops in the countryewe print anything
from ollice blanl4s on the old l-leidelberg

HIGH-STEPPING, baton-twirling malorettes,
who have been trained in the art by Mrs.
Rose Marie Libbert, are Susan Perkins,
Yvonwe l-lammond, and Janet Good who
march at the head of the Marching Band.
Qur music students are some of the busiest on our campus. They belong to
orchestras, bands, choral groups, Madrigal Singers, and ensembles. And because
they give such delightful performances, they are constantly in demand, It they aren
busy practicing lor an operetta, theyire giving a concert. It they're not giving a
concert, they're enioying a party. Although they are kept quite busy singing
a song here or playing an instrument there, they always manage to Find time to
prepare and present numerous programs lor our enioyment. We Techites really
appreciate our talented musicians. And when they travel to neighboring states
we hear that other audiences are equally appreciative.

WORKING O PUBLICATIO S IS FU
Editing a yearbook is not all peaches and
cream, lrials and tribulations are many as
the months slip by. Writing and rewriting
copy, taking and retaking pictures, making
layouts, mounting pictures, counting
characters, and measuring copy all add up
to a Full-time iob. But when that deadline
has been met, vve heave a sigh oi relief.
All our worries and problems seem to be
forgotten, and vve only hope that the
thousands oi lechites vvho read our book
will Feel as we do-that it is a lasting
reminder oi our happy high school days.

It's fun to be an editor ofthe CANNON weekly even if vve do develop headaches
planning pages, measuring copy, trying to corner our elusive photographer for that
last-minute shot, cropping pictures, rushing copy to the print Shop to meet the deadline,
and reading proof. But what a lreen satisfaction vve derive from the finished product, We
soon forget the occasional last lunch periods and the after-school hours of vvorlf,

Sexson, Albert Northington, Bobby Morris, and Bud Wray, but
David l-luff, Barney Murray, and Qrville Stonebreal4er were always
