Typing is one of the most popular ot the commercial courses. Students learn the operation and care of machines, as well as typing skill in clerical, col' lege, and personal work. For any student going into business, bookkeeping is an essential. Shorthand is designed mainly tor the preparation of secretaries, as is the business machines course. The latter acquaints the student with machines tound in most modern offices - billing and posting machines, calculators, and adding machines. The shop course consists of wood-burning, wood-working, and doing elec- trical experiments. Students often wish to take drafting in preparation for a career. Here they learn lettering, detailed drawing, sheet metal layout, and the reading of blueprints. In recent years welding has been made part of the in- dustrial arts program.

CDCIAL SCIENCES Attempting to establish a solid background of education, the Social Science department teaches the experiences of other cultures, the various concepts of government, and solutions to many problems that may arise in our daily life. Starting in the tenth grade, students are given the opportunity to take world history, which attempts to help him understand the political, social, and economic problems of today. lt also traces the growth of the nations of the world. The students in their junior year are required to take United States history. This class gives the pupil a chance to learn his role as a citizen and to learn the basis of the United States democracy. Sociology is also offered in the junior year. This subject acquaints the students with the forms, institu- tions, and funcions of human groups. They study contemporary problems and attempt to seek out pos- sible solutions for them. In the student's senior year he may branch out into economics, where he studies the various prob- lems that arise in connection with the efforts of people to make a living. The scope of this course is very broad and appeals to the young persons in- terested in business administration or business man- agement. The senior may also desire to take home and family living, which interests pupils who wish to pre- pare for a happy married life. Such topics are dis- cussed as dating, recreational activities, mutual plan- ning, income problems, personality adiustment, and the family. These subjects help the students to un- derstand more fully the economic, social, and govern- mental problems that may arise today.

lx THE RAcTicAL ARTS cover what he wishes to make his lite vvork. Bentley's course in driver training is growing in importance each year, both to the benefit of the students and ot the community. lt is offered to grades ten through twelve. Another program, library training, has two goals in mind. The tirst is to Otter a complete library service to students and teachers fvith the help ot student assistants. Secondly, the course gives technical experience to the people that select this course. Related instruction is new at Bentley this year. It is an arrangement .where- by the student may work outside ot school while taking courses related to his work. The student receives academic credit tor working both inside and outside of school. This is one more step in the direction ot learning by doing. Bentley's practical arts department carries out the ideas of education through application in actual situations. This phase ot the curriculum is the final touch to a well-rounded education for each individual.
