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
"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
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.

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
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
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.
