EIGHT'S TRIUMPH TRUTHS
Our Class Motto:
"Mind Sends Forth Perfection"
By BETH HILL
Our class motto was lettered by Beth Hill and Bonnie Nance.
This verse, from Mary Baker Eddy's writings, was proposed by
Agnes Montgomery. It has proven helpful in our school work
as we have realized the truth in this verse.
Since September the Eighth Grade has had six elections. Our
presidents have been: Don McCarty, Ronald Krisel, Lyn Ken-
drick, Melissa Bosler, Beth Hill, and Christine Morse.
Our secretaries have been: Beth Hill, Melissa Bosler, Peg
Savage, Ken Crow, Melinda McMahan, and Bonnie Nance.
This year fourteen Eighth Graders have been able to keep
Blue Cards the whole time. They are: Susan Attridge, Melissa
Bosler, George Burnette, Ken Crow, Beth Hill, Lyn Kendrick,
Nancy Kohler, Ronald Krisel, Carol Mau, Don McCarty, Chris-
tine Morse, Jan Meyhaus, Bonnie Nance, and Peg Savage.
A Challenge and It's Reward
BY KENNETH CROW
In this modern age we hear of computers and how they are
used to solve almost any problem.
On january 19, 1962, we received a letter stating that we
were invited to see a computer at U.C.L.A. with which Mr.
Anderson is working for a degree. On January 26, Mr. Nelson
sent a letter challenging us. If we received 25 blue cards out
of a total of 30, we would get to see the computer. During this
period we worked our hardest and finally on April 4, we re-
ceived a letter from Mr. Nelson saying "The Eighth Grade has
earned the right to see the computer." Arrangements were made,
and on April 13 we left for U.C.L.A.
We entered a gallery there, and beyond the window stood
several computers and all the units involved. We were then
shown a movie, "The Thinking Machine," which explained
basically why computers are built and how they work.
. We then went on a tour which took us through the room
where the computer was.
' Generous Donors
BY CAROL MAU
The tradition of the Eighth Grade has been to contribute
generous funds to useful organizations. In December, 1961, the
class decided not to give gifts but to donate to CARE. Melissa
Bosler brought up the subject of the Christian Science Exhibit
at the World's Fair. A box was decorated and presented to our
class by Doree Citron for the purpose of donations. Each stu-
dent gave any amount he desired to give. By the end of the
week, we had collected 354015. Ten dollars went to the Chris-
tian Science Exhibit and 5530.15 to CARE. On January 8 we
received letters from Korea, Turkey, and Ecuador thanking us
for our generosity.
BY DOREE CITRON
I love the rain, a-coming down,
It never, never makes me frown.
It is magic, plain to see
As it lights each shimmering tree.
Yes, I love rain coming down
Scrubbing clean all parts of town,
God's way of saying, "Keep hearts clean,
Keep thoughts bright, never mean."
God's way is ever wise and true.
I pray to reflect it in all I do.
BY STEVE BRADLEY
This past fall the Eighth Grade was given gifts of two color-
ful pictures donated by the Arthurs.
One of these pictures called "Trail Boss," especially brings
out the beauty of the West by showing a leader behind his
wagon train moving westward.
The other picture, "Fur Trading," also gives an impression
of what the early days of the Wild West were like.
A Gallery of Triumphs
BY SUSAN ATTRIDGE
Following the tradition of the Berkeley Hall art class, the
Eighth Grade girls have put up the colorful decorations at the
various dances. This was with the patient guidance of Mrs,
For the Spring Formal, the beauty of Japan was brought out
in brilliant colors.
Thanks to Mrs. Richards this has been a year of triumphs for
the Eighth Grade girls.
Disneyland? No, McMahan's!
BY JON JARVIS
"Who would want to go to Disneyland when you could go
to the McMahans?" This remark was made by an Eighth Grade
girl a number of years ago. We were delighted to receive another
invitation from Mrs. McMahan asking us to her house for our
Picnic Day this year. Everyone enjoyed the swimming, tennis
and paddle tennis. We had delicious food for lunch. Afterwards
the boys played baseball and the girls bounced on the trampoline.
We topped off the day by starting the 1913 Rambler Ccalled
Sullivanj . It was a fun way to have our Picnic Day.
BY BONNIE NANCE
Preparing ourselves to become good future citizens com-
menced in the Eighth Grade during the second semester with
the studying of the Constitution.
This was the year's supreme project. We were eager to learn
how our Constitution was made and how Congress and the
Legislative, Executive, and judicial Departments operate under
this great document. With Mrs. Hall's guidance we learned how
a bill is passed through Congress, how an alien is naturalized,
and how and where to use and display the flag.
Many long hours were spent searching for pictures and
putting them together into one informative notebook.
We will never cease to be grateful for the good it has done
us in helping us to know how our government operates and
what our part in it is.
Milestones in Science
BY GEORGE BURNETTE
During this Age of Space, the Eighth Grade boys have en-
gaged in a wide variety of very interesting subjects in our
science class. We learned about weather and the different parts
of our atmosphere. We also learned about the fascinating world
of astronomy, which Mr. Richards explained very precisely.
Mr. Richards has explained very well the atomic structure of
an atom and how a chain reaction starts.
This year Mr. Richards has helped us to make our education
more complete as we have proved the principles of science.

The First Home of Berkeley Hall
Dedicated to Two Little Sisters
The Valentines' Secret
BY PAUL APPLEBY
Tall friends delight them with ribboned verse deceiving-
To the little ones a day of luscious Waiting,
Till the mystery box yields secrets, storms abaring,
Not knowing younger minds are rich in sweet believing,
So openly expectant, so confident in gift receiving,
So eager to show Love in the Master's weaving.
No simple card, no empty verse rejecting,-
A11 love out-poured in graciously accepting. The Second Home of Berkeley Hall

Iourney to the Orient
BY SHARI BLEICHMAN p -
This year the McMahans graciously showed their beautiful
color slides on japan. It has been a tradition in our Eighth
Grade that someone who has been on an educational trip such
as this, shows pictures of it.
The slides were narrated by Melinda McMahan. Along with
this, we had the history of japan by Christine Morse, and the
history of Hong Kong by Kim Austin. Julie Warner told about
the many refugees in Japan. Steven Bradley narrated the history
of Japan's most famous mountain, Mt. Fugi.
A scrapbook of the McMahan's trip was brought along. It
contained different maps of the places visited. We are very
grateful to the McMahans for sharing with us their colorful
Summer in Japan.
Leafing through Literature
BY MELISSA BOSLER
We never know whom we shall meet next in Mrs. Dlouhy's
literature class! Booth Tarkington, Washington Irving, Mark
Twain, Charles Dickens, Henry Longfellow, Nathaniel Haw-
thorne, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, and William Shake-
speare are but a few of the many authors whose characters have
brightened our day.
During football season Mr. Seeley and his "Freshman Full-
back" son taught us never to admit that we are licked.
The Christmas season meant The Cbrittmn: Carol. We learned
to love Tiny Tim-and even Scrooge.
Easter and we joined Alice in Wonderland! She had many
unusual friends, and we tried to understand them all.
All in all we have had a wonderful literature experience.
Eighth Grade MCHSUICS
BY STEVE ARTHUR
Mrs. Purtle has taught the Eighth Grade very much this year
with an accent of humor to make music a fun and interesting
class. She has taught the Eighth Grade much about instruments,
composers, and their compositions.
On Saturday, December 16th, the Eighth Grade went caroling
and then came back to Berkeley Hall and enjoyed refreshing
apple cider and some popcorn given by Mr. Thomas Arthur.
For graduation the Eighth Grade sang "I Believe" and "Songs
of Gladness," two very beautiful songs.
Africa And Civil War Assemblies
BY CHRISTINE MORSE
Two interesting assemblies were given last fall by the Eighth
Grade. Ronald Fleming of Pomona College and a former
Berkeley Hall student gave us a talk on his trip to Africa. He
lived and worked with the natives and people from all over the
world. He gave us a very enlightening picture of Africa and
The other assembly reported on the Civil War. The three
strategies of the North and the three of the South were given
and explained. Excerpts from the famed Gettysburg Address
were given and the assembly was completed by a moving recital
of Abraham Lincoln's fruitful efforts in preserving the Union
and its place in history.
Do you Want to know what time it is? Ask Mrs. Hall. She
always has the right time!
