Senior High in Variety of Studies "Round and round she "The square of the hypotanuse is equal ton - and mighty is the struggle that is waged goes," a n d w h e n she's through, off from the press comes the weekly copy of the Creston Echo or perhaps tickets or programs for some school affair. In the ad- vanced printing classes, much more than regular class work is accomplished. In .the fore- ground is Jim Gilmer who is feeding the press. Mr. Tock is explaining the faults of the student's work and tell- ing him the best way to cor- rect it. Domestically inclined, these girls fit, cut, baste, and sew materials and patterns but after their strenuous labors, each one is satisfied with the garment she has created. Miss Philips lends to the eager seamstresses a proverbial helping hand. Class members become adept at fitting and turn yards of materials into street frocks, formals, suits, shorts, and coats which would be a credit to Vogue's Fashion Salon. "Paid to the account of jones, Jones, and Jones, .S500." After a fictitious company is created, students in bookkeeping classes open the accounts. Entry after entry is inserted. At the end of each imaginary business month, the assets and liabilities columns are added. In order to have a correct set of books, the trial balance must be accurate. Thatis where the trouble begins, but after encouragement from Miss Giles, students try again, find their errors and continue the work. to prove the same in Mr. Randall's geometry classes. Theorems and problems are mastered in their turn. The classes are composed most- ly of tenth graders who plan to take higher mathematical training. Such sciences as chemistry and physics and also trigonometry are based upon facts learned in geometry courses. "Parlez-vous francais. Under Miss Eness, instruction, the members of the French classes readily exclaim "oui." French novels and stories double the interest in the language studied. Due to the fact that classes are com- paratively small in size, individual attention -pas and instruction then the group is promoted. Every now and pauses to laugh heartily over the strange idioms and cus- toms they study. Michaelangelos of the future, Creston's young artists skillfully wield their chisels and gracefully move their brushes patiently to- day. Always striving to reach the goal, having their pic- ture displayed in the great galleries, the students labor carefully. Besides producing original designs and portraits in oil coloring, advanced pupils direct their energies toward a more difficult end, that of sculpturing out of marble slabs, faces and fig- l.ll'eS.

Preparation for Future is Aim of Do you know your dates? Miss von Spreck- en, upper left, is not questioning students about the previous evening nor coming events, but teaching the history 6 classes the facts of Modern History. Group discussions amongst the pupils constitute the method of study. As a question is raised, the chairman at each table conducts the discussion until the problems are thrashed out. Future Lily Ponses and Nelson Eddys get their vocal practice daily under Mr. Frank Goodwin's able direction, pictured upper right. In order to help those interested, talented stu- dents cultivate their voices, a special class was created. Besides analyzing folk songs of differ- ent countries, individual attention is given to the training of each voice. Solos are sung be- fore the class and helpful suggestions are offered. Vocal exercises add to the variety of the practice. Who should know better than these young typists, right, that "Haste makes wasten? Budgets are turned in on Monday of each week and speed tests are taken twice each week, but too much hurrying only results in a great number of errors and low marks. Miss Appelt teaches her students letter forms, tabulation, how to make carbon copies, the use of the dictaphone, and many other requirements necessary in the business world. Test tubes, chemical fumes, Bunsen burners, and various equipment shows that these chemistry students, left, are busily enjoying their eagerly awaited "lab" period. Lab- oratory periods give students a chance to experiment and prove by test what they have already learned from text books. Playing the role of the "Good Samaritani' for all who are not sure of their procedure is Mr. Wood, Creston's physics and chem- istry instructor who praises his students for their efforts. Striving to attain perfection in their plates, these young draftsmen, shown left below, in- dustriously twirl their Compasses. Blue prints and architectural work are a part of their pro- gram while drafting fills a great deal of the time. The various classes complete as many as 40 to 60 plates a semester depending on the grade of the class. Lettering is being taken by some of the students. Mr. Toogood aids when work becomes too difficult. "All Gaul is divided into three parts reads one of Mrs. Stowell's Latin classes, right be- low, deep in an account of Caesaris Gallic Wars. Well-organized campaigns to show that Latin is not a dead language were on Mrs. Stowell's test of class projects and many origi- nal posters were submitted for exhibition. Latin is alive in the medical, law, scientific, chemi- cal and musical fields. 99
