ness. Every act that we perform involves some physical law. It is true that physics requires mathef
matics, however, a high school physics course should not have the solving of problems its chief
objective. The principal objective should be to instill in every student a greater appreciation of
the importance of the physical laws of nature, our home, and the community.
In New York this is accomplished by the World's Fair, in our high school by the use of a
Each student chooses a project that represents either a hobby or an interest. The project
is developed by the collecting of data, reading of various articles, studying of manufacturers'
specifications and charts, and in some cases personal interviews with prominent scientists.
In the past three years 265 theses have been placed in the Physics Library Files. Every
thesis has been a credit to the writer.
A few theses that have unusual titles are: The Evolution of the Wheelg Black Lightg Flame
Hardening of Steel, Venture Tubes, Pianoforteg Einstein Theory, A Study of the Polygraph, Air'
plane Propsg Electrical Hearing Aids for the Deaf, Ford Wind Tunnelg and Air Foils.
The laboratory experiment shows the commercial methods of determining the electrical
resistance of various kinds of wires, different diameters, and lengths.
Janeth Dixon and Donna Dewey are demonstrating a method for determining resistance.

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.

"The graduate of the agricultural curriculum should have skill and
knowledge in not only the vocation of farming, but a broad general educa-
tion which will enable him to become an intelligent and useful citizen."

The Agricultural Department of the high school has been in operation
since 1918. At the present time, there are approximately 100 boys taking
the agricultural courses of Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Farm Crops
and Soils. Most of these boys carry on summer project work for which they
receive school credit.
The 71st chapter of the Future Farmers of America is the student
organization sponsored by the Agricultural Department.
