Here girls may learn house- keeping along " modern " methods. The school cafeteria was man- aged the last semester by Mrs. Gladys Richey, with Mrs. Richard- son as supervisor. The home economics cottage has been a popular social center, where tea, luncheons and " Cozy Hours " have been enjoyed. An early American bedroom suite has been added to the furniture. Business Increased production in the commercial department has been its outstanding feature this year. Twenty-five hundred tickets, 1,500 programs, a nine page Eng- lish paper, 20,000 copies of mime- ograph sheets, duplicated typing, and script for operetta have been included in the output. The secretarial training class took a field trip to well-equipped offices. The commercial department now has thirty-two typewriters. The classes entered the state contest, in which the Shorthand I class won third place. Girls ' Physical Education The girls ' gymnasium classes have increased greatly in num- bers during the past year. The intra-mural basketball league was the outstanding feature of the year ' s extra-curricular activities. Four teams captained by Helen Stewart, Adele Lobraico, Maxine Roberts, and Lucia Burrows played weekly games. Ping-pong was also popular. Freshmen girls, unfamiliar with basketball were instructed by sen- ior girls in a special after school class. This plan will be followed next year. Shop So large was the enrollment for mechanical drawing, that a new class was formed this year. Mr. Wann states that another will be organized next year, for the study of mechanical and architectural drawing. He expects a blue-print- ing machine for the class. This year Mr. Wann appointed two student assistants in shop and has found this plan successful. The helpers were Lowell O ' Brien and Robert Allen. The Social Program All-school parties, popular as in past years, included a Hallowe ' en Frolic, sponsored by the Orange Aid; Christmas Call with journal- ism class as hosts; Hearts and Circles, planned by pupils of science and mathematics classes, and the Dublin Fair, the money making project of the journalism department. Several after-schooi dancing lessons were offered free to those pupils, desirous of learning " to trip the light fantastic. " Dramatics The dramatic activities of the year opened with the " Bean Fam- ily Reunion, " October 16, spon- sored by the music department and was a program of comedy and good music.

lum; drums, William Deupree, Wallace McKelvey; cymbals, Max Faucett. Reid Chapman is student director. More than 100 pupils enrolled in chorus work for each semester. A girls ' glee club was organized for the fourth period. Besides the emphasis on good tone quality, Mr. Hall has placed stress on cul- tivation of pleasing public appear- ance, the gaining of poise while singing. For the Christmas program the chorus classes were dressed in white choir robes, donated and made by the Parent-Teachers ' club. The high light of the year was the operetta, originated by Mr. Hall and written by Mrs. Stuart. The title " A Plantation Romance, " was given for the story which served as a back ground for the immortal songs of Steph- en C. Foster. The Negro camp meeting scene was a par- ticularly fine scene, at which a boys ' chorus was featured. Those students selected for the Golden Singers are: Edgar Hoy, Jay Boyer, Thomas Herrin, Reid Chapman, George Stevens, Crisella Maple, Juanita Robinson, Ar- mand Mauk, Betty Hartzell, and Margaret Smith. Betty Jane Sweetman is pianist. % X X PICTURES SHOWN ARE: 1 . Operetta 2. Golden Singers 3. Band 4. Orchestra 5. At extreme left in bottom row; trio 6.
