4-NL 2. i PHYSICS There are few subjects taught in our high school that can equal physics in terms of useful' 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 thesis. 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.

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.

AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT "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." 1 in 3 -5 sofe ' tra FIELD WORK 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.
