GENERAL METAL SHOP
Burbank Junior High School has one of the best pre-vocational shops
in Berkeley. There are plumbing, auto, electric, machine, lathe, forge,
and sheet-metal divisions under the supervision of Mr. Erick.
All of the boys greatly enjoy working in the shops as the work is de-
signed so that one may progress from the simplest of objects to more com-
plicated problems. Each step is planned and the material figured carefully
so that there will be no mis-steps.
The band and the orchestra have music stands which were made and
painted in the shops. The boys in the auto shop have a Ford which trav-
elled from North Carolina to California. They have repaired it and now
have it in good running condition,
At the California State Fair in 1930, Burbank was the only school to
win a silver cup. It was won by our metal shop for the variety and excel-
lence of the display.

THE WOOD SHOP
Burbank has an ideal shop where boys may learn the art of carpentry.
There are four wood lathes where the boys can learn to turn out lamps and
other attractive pieces. There are also about thirty-six work benches, an
up-to-date band saw, large wood saw, and an electric planar. All of these
make the work easier, and by means of the equipment the boys are able to
make more pretentious articles.
This term the shop has an excellent new feature. It is the new tool
room. This room is much larger and is better ventilated than the other
one, making the working environment much healthier. Every precaution is
taken for the safety of the boys working in the shop. Guards are placed
on the saws, and other details are designed to prevent accidents.
We are indeed proud of our modern and progressive wood-shop division.

WHY THE SUBJECT OF CLOTHING IS USEFUL
' The study of clothing is valuable to us in a great many ways. First
of all it gives us a chance to learn something about sewing and different
stitches. Once a week we write topics on different subjects and each per-
son finds out about styles and colors that are most becoming to her own in-
dividual type. If you like to make your own clothes in the best style you
will find this subject very interesting.

THE NEW BUHBANK GYMNASIUM
The new gymnasium was completely finished and ready for occupancy on
March first. At that time, the Burbank boys took possession of their new
quarters, leaving the old gym to the girls.
The new building has ample room for the pupils' needs. Additional
showers, and a sufficient number of combination lockers are but two of
the splendid features of our new quarters, The bleachers, first-aid room
and space for corrective gymnasium are added conveniences, while the sun-
room, high up in the south-west corner, offers facilities for indoor and
outdoor sun-bathing. The outside section is used in good weather when it
isn't too cold, and the inside is occupied when the weather is inclement.

U y WHAT MAKES A DINING BOOM INVITINGE
We are told to talk about pleasant things at meal times. We are also
told that cheerfulness helps digestion. Consequently, a dining room, in
order to fulfill its proper mission, should always be cheerful and bright.
When the sun has a chance to shine in brightly--usually through east win-
dows for a dining room--it helps to start a person on his day's work in
the proper mood. f
In order to make a dining room look inviting, it needs to be clean
and tidy. One should have curtains that are suitable and easy to keepss
Fresh table linen is also essential for an appetizing meal.

Candles, flowers, and beautiful dishes are attractive means to create
a pleasant room wherein the diners thoroughly enjoy the meal and the sur-
