s 1 ' 1 f 3. S 7 8 0 ti O V. 9 h le es m he ot he ir- he ur rk on ies The Art Department--Reasons for Studying Art. HE art department is one -Q which is given compara- tively little attention, but it is also one which is cer- 5 tainly of great importance. ' 'U In the Central High School the art room is so small for the number of 'ef pupils, that the best re- sults cannot be obtained. However, when the pupils do their part, the gen- erous and untiring ellorts of the in- structor accomplishes more than one would suppose. It is impossible to es- timate the real value of such a study as drawing. "Sighting" trains the eye of pupils to see things as they are. An ordinary person will not realize of what advant- age this is until he has made a study of it. He learns to measure distances accurately with his eye, and to see ob- jects in their true proportions. The study of color, too, is ot great benefit. It shows the pupils the rela- tion between light and shade, as well as drawing does. The student soon learns to appreciate the lJea11ti0S of nature's coloring and tries to imitate it. ln time, this watching for the dif- ferent tints and shades in objects de- velops in the pupil an artistic sense of the harmony ot' certain eombinatious of colors and the lack of harmony of Others. y Then when one becomes interested in these studies they often grow very fascinating. A true student of art will learn to pick out the good points in a picture-a lesson that cannot but afford him the greatest pleasure. It is a pleasure, also, to try to draw and paint scenery well. One feels that he has accomplished something when he has come a little eloser to perfection. But "art for art's sakei, is not the highest motive for studying art. In trying to make something perfect we, ourselves, eome a little nearer perfec- tion. A study of the beautiful must in time make its impress on our char- acters. We can also teach others to love the beautiful if they do not al- ready love it. They, too, are deeply impressed by this kind of study. It cannot but be of the greatest inlluenee to a person to look for the good points in everything he sees. And so the work ol' art goes on. Everything of beauty does its part toward making man the perteet ereat- ure God meant him to be. CORA PICKETT. -Q7,..

ed by ltay lloover, Will Vooper and myself. This engine is an up- right one, having a cylinder of five and one-half inch stroke and foul' inches in diameter. The engine has not yet been completed on account Of the many unavoidable delays which have been encountered. However, we intend to he able to complete it in the early part of next fall. The cross head, cross head guides, and cylinder have already been completed, besides many small parts. Thus the work in the shop has been progressing steadily, and by next year we hope to be able to do much better and faster work on account of the bet- ter equipments which will be i11 at that time. Our shop at present contains two metal lathes, one of sixteen, the other of ten-inch swing, a wood lathe, jig saw, circular saw, eme1'y wheels, drill, and several other smaller but needful machines. Now to turn to the regular work again. when we first began the study oi' physics, wc know no reasons for the various phenomena that occur about us every day. For instance, if you vis- ited some large city you might ride on what is called a, turn-over railway. In this railway a car loaded with people goes down a steep incline at the foot of which a loop and here at one time the passengers, car and all are upside down and the car still running on the tracks above them. The ques- tion is, how the car manages to stay on the track in going over the loop. One who has studied physics simply applies the law of central force and has solved the whole p1'oblem and can find just what momentum is neces- sary to keep the car on the track. Thus we have things in every-day life which puzzle some people, which, when solved, will come directly down to a law of physics. Some persons cannot tell your What a steam engine is. They think that its chief necessity is a boiler and a fire, when, in reality, these are only acces- sories to the engine itself. In the physics department all these things are explained and we understand the en- gine's whole order. Thus we do not have to go ignorant through life as to things a person really ought to know. We have learned this year how the electric lamp works, how when a high current is sent through it the little wire or filament in the lamp becomes white hot, and placed in a vacuum gives off a brilliant yellow light. The state of the tilamentts being white hot is called ineandesecncc, hence the name, incandescent lamp. These few examples show how inter- esting and how helpful have been the things which we have learned in our physics work this year and the work done here is gaining us the reputation of having the best high school physics department in the West. livuuisrr COPLEY. as lea nat it. fern veh
