careful study of subjects such as typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, commercial law, business Eng'

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.

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.

Mathematics is a science of measuring and relating the properties, quantities and magni'
tudes. 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
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
students to remember me for what I look like, but I want them to remember what I teach and
what I have taught them."

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.
