Creative Writing This section of the yearbook is devoted to the literary efforts of the students. Mr. I. W. Fetherlin and Mr. I. M. Thompson, instructors in English. have collected the essays and poetry written by the students to be included this year. This section also provides the opportunity for the members of the art classes to create designs for the yearbook cover and title pages. Iohn Podzamsky's silk screen was chosen for the cover by Mr. C. Dean Chiprnan, head of the art department. Five title pages were designed and drawn using the silk screen process by members of the art classes. They are "Clubs," Iohn Podza- THE ONE GREAT TEACHER Lord help me to study And lncrease my knowledge That l may further my studies And work on through college Education will offer The tendency to see Thy splendid creation Thou hast set before rn By You my Creator My life s path ts planned Please make me worthy Of thy helping hand Help me to remember To dispel all my fear msky: Activities," lane Ianisch: "Sports," Iohn Margolf: "Commencement," Ieanne Owens: and "Creative Writing," Vonnell Mastri. lohn Podza- msky, a junior, designed and drew the cover for the Christmas program. The spring program's cover was designed and executed by two sen- iors, Roy Becker and Paul King. Much of the poems and prose in this section have been accepted in the National Anthology of Poetry. Some of the students have had two or more of their works accepted which makes them eligible for the Creative Writing Club.
