In Burbank Junior High School the function of mechanical drawing is
largely one of supplementation of other subjects or departments. It is,
as in all junior high schools, a strictly non-vocational subject, for the
making of draftsmen is not within the junior high school field.
In this work, drawing of a mechanical nature takes the form of an ex-
pression of a working summary of the mathematical and mechanical accumulaw
tion of the pupil. This is accomplished by a close blending Qf the wonk
of other shops and, at times, of subjects of a non-mechanical nature.
Arithmetic, civics, geography, and science may often be clarified and en-
riched by a working contact with this department. '
The teaching of certain fundamental processes of simple mechanic ex-
pressions are woven into the course of the work, and interest therein
progresses accordingly. Drill in the perfection of skill has little
place on pre-vocational programs. Appreciation and personal perspective
are the proper goal. n

PUBLIC SCHOOL WEEK
Burbank Junior High School observed Public School Week by holding
Open House on Thursday evening, April twenty-third. Career books, penman-
ship papers, art posters and various other exhibitions adorned the walls
of the hallways. School was in session from 7:30 until 8:30 p. m. so as
to give the parents an idea of how Burbank students are educated.
The sewing room displayed many garments made by the girls. The Latin
classes presented a model recitation, and several boys carried on science
experiments. Each subject was represented in its own classroom, while the
orchestra played in the auditorium.
When the class work was over, the crowd moved to the boys' new gymna-
sium. The band played numerous selections. Several of Berkeley's leading
citizens were present for the dedication of the new gymnaei m and made
short speeches. Next on the program came various songs from the Junior
Glee Clubs. The Tumbling Club entertained with many clever stunts, and
the last and most exciting number was the series of matches between some
of the boys.
There was an exceptionally large audience, and we believe they left
with a favorable impression of our school.

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.

which make eating pleasant and comfortable should be placed in a
room. One should not even tolerate a crowded appearance since it
the room to lose its spaciousness and sense of repose.
Candles, flowers, and beautiful dishes are attractive means to create
a pleasant room wherein the diners thoroughly enjoy the meal and the sur-
roundings. O '

p THE WIZARD
This term, the Wizard staff waspcomposed of three sections: The art-
ists, the authors, and the artisans.
The art group worked under the splendid direction of Mrs. Most and
Miss Santos. It was their duty to draw all pictures, cartoons, and designs
for the Wizard. They were chosen because of their artistic ability, effic-
iency, and good workmanship. Eric Johnson was elected student art editor,
and was responsible for all corrections and alterations that the drawings
required. The art division played an important part in the making of the
Wizard and without their assistance our book could not have been a success.
The literary section had many things to accomplish this semester. It
was the authors' duty to compile and edit all of the stories and articles
contributed to the Wizard. A representative was appointed from each class
room upon the basis of literary ability. The representatives met in weekly
meetings under Mrs. Athearn's direction to plan the sales campaign and to
secure the necessary copy for the various sections of the Wizard.
Renee Mattingly, of the H9y' class was chosen as the editor-in-chief
of this issue. Her duty was to collect and revise all matter entered for
publication. I ., p
The artisans attended to the buying of the paper and the typing of
the stencils. They did all of the mimeographing, assembling, and other
mechanical details. There was a great responsibility for this section, but
under Mrs. Tomsen's able leadership, the pupils greatly enjoyed the work.
Lucille Noyes took over the position of student business manager.
She had charge of the money that was taken in from the sale of the books.
Each of the three groups has tried its best to make the Wizard a bet-
ter book. Each student has shown an individual interest in it, and like
Burbank himself, has enjoyed "watching the flower bloom."
We are sincerely grateful to all who have helped to make this edition
of the Wizard a success. It has been a worth-while project from which we
who have been privileged to work on it have greatly benefited.
