'- The Commercial Department of the Crookston High School wasinstituted at the beginning of the
school year of 1911-12, to meet the need for a more practical course of study in the High School, '
It was through the tireless efforts of Mr, Hess our present superintendent, that this department
was organized, and we are indebted to him' for whatever success has been attained by the department.
Mr. Clark was head of the department for the iirst Year, but was forced to give up the work at
the end of the year on account of ill health. At, the opening ofgthe second year of tl1e department's work,
it was found that so many pupils had taken advantage of the opportunity to take the work that an as-
sistant was necessary. Miss MacQWil1iams was elected to till this position as assistant to Mr. DeGraw,
who was then head of the department. Mr,-Byrn, who is the present head of the department, was
elected to the position last year, and has been re-elected for next yearj .
I The following is a partial list of subjects offered by the department: ' '
Commercial Geographyf I '
Bookkeeping I and II.
Stenography I and II. I
Commercial Law. ' - ' -
Oiiice Practice and Methods. - - ' ,
The department has made splendid progress since its origin, and at present there are almost one
hundred pupils doing commercial work. The quiet, persistent, unassuming work of thefdepartment is
beginning to make itself felt,-'and has brought the Commercial Classto the front as one of the regular-
ly established classes ofthe school. 'H . A ,
Early in the present school year the class was organized, electing the following officers:
PRESIDENT - - - Lester 'Gilbertson
VICE PRESIDENT - - Minnie Schwarzkopf
SECRETARY - - - Cora Duval L

With "Eitcelsior" as our motto, the class must press onward and upward ever striving, to ,unclerel
stand the meaning of, and meet the requirements of the True Education-preparing one's -self'for'a- suc-
cessful and happy life. Q I ep, '
