ONE I-IUNDREDTH March 5 of this year in a successful presenta- tion of "Out of the Frying Pan". 1934 was also noteworthy for the organization of the aviation and chess clubs. On March 1, 1934 the Hrst issue of the Classical Review, the school paper, came out, with the guidance of Miss Sears and Miss Loud. Over 360 copies were distributed free, and it was such a great success that in three weeks 657 sub- scriptions poured in for the next issue. In 1937 the Radio Club had its beginning, and in 1938 the Camera and Chemistry Clubs were started. But the big event of the annual social calendar is the day of the skating party. On that day Mr. and Mrs. Paine, the faculty, and students meet after school at Roger Williams Park to spend an invigorating after- noon and evening on the ice. During the past ten years many new sub- jects have been added. The science course has been extended so that Mechanical Draw- ing, Aeronautics, and Biology are now offered. One year of Physics is still compulsory. The Art course, omitted after the departure of Mr, Randall, a few years ago, has been re- instated under the direction of Mr. Scott, a new teacher at Classical. From its very conception, Classical has dis- tinguished itself in many ways. During the ,..-r . ,,,,..,.- ,..., W., , ANNIVERSARY Civil War, for example, several of the teachers mobilized a troop of students and marched off to help defend Washington from the Con- federate Army. The school was the Hrst public school in the country to be admitted to the Cum Laude Society. From 1881 to 1903, Classical students won 107 entrance prizes in Cireek, Latin, French, and Mathe- matics, as compared to 93 by all other com- peting schools together. The oldest club in the school, the Debating Society, begun in 1844, has been unbeatable for the last twenty years, winning from high school and college students alike. ln 1922 the Hrst awards made at Brown were all taken by Classical men. From then on, Classical constantly took more awards at Brown and Pembroke than any other school. In this, the 4th great American war since the school's beginning, Classical is again up- holding its standards of scholastic achievement while meeting the exigencies of war. In fact, ours was the only school in Providence whose program needed no change in curriculum to fit the new Victory training program, This year, 1943, marks the one hundredth anniversary in the life of a notable school. ln Classical it is also the beginning of another century of service to the community. ----------- .---- --.- - -, - A , , ,.,,.,,..,.lk W xy ,wg ...,r if I A ' L 1 sunday in the park
