MISS CONOVER LINDENBERGER WELLS COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT To get into the business world, there must be some gate you pass through to attain the oal you have hopefully set for yourself In high school you can gain the latchkey to this gate by g . careful study of subjects such as typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, commercial law, business Eng' ' ' f k ' 'bl f r us to take lish, and commercial geography. Our present day school system ma es it poss1 e o any of these subjects. Large numbers of students trudge hourly each day to the business classes of Mrs. Linden' berger and Miss Wells. Through their teaching of typing, shorthand, and office practice many stu' dents are trained to burst into the business world with great success. In the office practice class the students receive valuable experience in the working of all the different types of office machines. By using these machines the pupils put out many different kinds of programs, tests, and other kinds of printed matter for the school. Mr. Felten, a member of the bar, efficiently teaches the subjects of business English and commercial law. A very good bookkeeper is Mr. Conover, who heads the bookkeeping department. Under his direction many capable bookkeepers are turned out every year. Mr. Foley also belongs in this list of the teachers of the commercial arts. He teaches com' mercial geography and bookkeeping.

3 -in AN " ' . MRS. MR. MISS MR- I' KENDALL BRIDGHAM EMERY GI-ASBR FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT The language department of Benton Harbor High School consists of three languages, French, German, and Latin. The purpose of teaching foreign languages is not so that one can read the italicized words in novels, but to createa better understanding of the various peoples and an interest in how the people in other countries live. The French and German students correspond with French and Ger- man pupils of English in their respective countries. According to the students, the most interesting part of these sub- jects is the singing and playing of foreign games. Mrs. Kendall and Mr. Glaser teach German. French is taught by Miss Emery, and Latin by Mr. Bridgham. V 'OKREO T 1-Q I T 'SITDUMM X-Q, 5' 'Nz , I - 2 iw 'vt g g 4 i all-TG? MR.

By studying mathematics a student learns many formulas that enable him to determine the sizes of all types of mathematical figures. Also one prepares himself with an extensive background for college work, such as Engineering, Mathematics Teacher or as a research worker in Chem'st 1 ry. The Geometry and Algebra classes, taught by I. J. Laws, is a perfect fools paradise for as the stud ts d h b ' ' en stan at t e oard solving their problems he proceeds to embarrass them to the fullest extent, or in plain words, makes a fool out of them. The marvel woman mathematician of this high school is Mrs. McCowan. She teaches Geometry, Advanced Algebra, Solid Geometry, and Trigonometry Mrs. McCowan will not let us take a picture of her or will she give us one of her for she says, "I don't want m f y ormer students to remember me for what I look like, but I want them to remember what I teach and what I have taught them."

SCIENCE DEPARTMENT CHEMISTRY When prehistoric man learned to keep his 'first fire going to warm his body he was, un- wittingly, the world's first human chemist. The subject of chemistry deals with the transforma- tions that matter undergoes when it changes from one substance to another. A Ere is a good example of such a change. The high school chemistry classes study the fundamental laws governing chemical changes. The chemical changes that take place around the student in his daily life are stressed. During the second semester the student makes a report of his own choosing on a chemif cal topic. Those interested in agriculture may report on the relationship of the science to agrif culture, the budding housewife to the home, the young engineer to the occupation he thinks he is interested in, etc. The possible topics are legion. The occupations directly or indirectly related to either physics or chemistry total more than all others in an industrial society. The guidance aspects of these subjects are stressed in the Benton Harbor High School. The 1939 seniors in Chemistry have shown much initiative in their chemistry reports. Their interests cover a wide field ranging from the general cultural value of the subject to its relation- ship to specific trades and occupations. 1-Q... I I sv-s sssf S MR. MR. MR. MR.
