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.

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.

In May several of the members attended the State F.F.A. Convention at Michigan State College and took part in the state judging and speaking contests.

Robert Remus, Allan Feather, and Bernard Fishler represented Benton Harbor as the apple judging team at the Grand Rapids Apple Show. . In December of 1938 a Berrien County F.F.A. was organized among the eight chapters in the county. George Glade was elected Treasurer of the county organization. The F.F.A, is a national organization with over 200,000 members in every state and United States possession. The national convention is held in October of each year at Kansas City. The F.F.A. has four degrees in its membership: Green Hand, Future Farmer, State Farm- er, and American Farmer. Boys must meet certain requirements to attain these different degrees.
