Mr. Semler is THE man in the High School who
helps us to practice Democracy. He believes in letting
the students have a large part in the government of
the school, and in most cases lets them run their activi-
ties in their own way. Of course, he holds a restraining
hand on many of the students' rather wild ideas, but
his reasons for doing this are always well founded.
Ruth Baumeister can always be found in Mr. Sem-
ler's office, ready to help and advise us. She acts as a
sort of administrative secretary in our school Democ-
racy. The students go to her for admits and excuses,
and she shrewdly discerns between false and worth'
while reasons. A rather touchy position for her to be
in, but she ills her office kindly and capably.
Mrs. Haynes is known as the "Gitls' Advisor," but
really is a kindly advisor to everyone. She is the one
girls and boys go to alike to seek advice, sympathy, and
sometimes just fun. They always find her a patient lis-
tener and an eager helper. She plays a big part in the
Girls' League paper and in the Drama and Music Club.

OUR SCHOOL DAYS ARE ACTUALLY CENTERED AROUND,
NOT AN ABSTRACT THING LIKE CURRICULUM, BUT THE SIMPLE
WORD, ACTIVITIES. THESE ACTIVITIES ARE FOR THE ADEQUATE
EXPRESSION OF THE STUDENTS' PURPOSES. THE EXPRESSION
IS EITHER FORMAL OR INFORMAL. FORMAL EXPRESSION IS IN-
CLUDED UNDER CURRICULUM ACTIVITY.

xt A tl Q-1
Mr. Foncannon insists that his
job is mainly that of errand boy.
Whether he really believes this or
not, we are inclined to disagree with
him. For out of his office in the last
two years have come several worthy
projects which have helped us to be-
! come more aware of the problems
in our "Practicing Democracy." They have made us take stock of ourselves
and our relation to the school and communityg they have shown us how we
can begin in our School activities to take on more responsibilities than we
ever believed ourselves capable of.
Besides the projects mentioned, Mr. Foncannon helps us with our
:hoice of a curriculum, so that we do not blindly take this or that, but have
1 purpose for our course. He has unraveled many a knotty problem of this
sort for us. To him also, we take many personal problems and have al-
vvays found him sympathetic. In fact, far from thinking of him as an errand
roy, we should rather regard him as chief worrier, since upon his should-
rs rests the responsibility of seeing that all of us are getting where we
fught to be getting. We believe that Mr. Foncannon and his department
verform an invaluable function in our school.
