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. God's Warniiig 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." Envoi God's way is ever wise and true. I pray to reflect it in all I do. 10 Western Coloring 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, Richards. 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. Future Voters 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.

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 its people. 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! 11
