THE DRAGON CLARK POWELL, Clerk C. H. PARSONS C. M. PHILLIPS C. T. BURSON CHESTER CRAUDER. Pres. A. W. SHOCK The Hoard of Education of Van Huren Township The year 1928 and ' 29 has had many perplexing problems for our Board of Education, and the members of our Board fully realize the responsibility that has been entrusted to them. They have devoted hours of time and thought to their task, and are ever ready and willing to face these responsibilities. A fine spirit of cooperation prevails among the personnel of our board members, and each member considers his obligations sacred. The ever increasing population of the communities in our township, together with the possibilities of annexation of certain portions, has demanded a great deal of attention on the part of our building program, but after much study and careful consideration, the building program will soon become a reality. Because Van Buren Township has the largest school system in the county unit, the board has seen fit to place Mr. Clark Powell. Clerk-Treasurer of the Board, on a full time basis to act as Purchasing Agent as well as a representative between the Board and the faculty. His services in this capacity have added materially to the success and harmony of our school system. While we can point with pride to our present schools, yet there are still higher goals to attain, and it is the desire of the Board to give the patrons of Van Buren Township a school system that will be second to none in the state. CHESTER CRAUDER, President. Ten

THE DRAGON cl Art Miss Urick has made a very pleasant and successful year of Art for the 84 enrolled students this year. The Art room has been redecorated with new drawing desks and other equipment that has always been needed. Students this year are working in oil and water color painting, Batik work, which is tie dyeing, crackly work and waxing designs. They have made from these scarfs, wall hangings and covers for porch furniture. Many have taken interest in Basketry or reed and raffia work. Lettering, Sketching, with pen, pencil or charcoal, have been very interesting to the students this year. Much time was spent during Christmas time making Christmas Cards and Posters for the Christmas Bazaar. Harold Manning, a member of the Senior Class, has for three years helped with all the art work which was needed at the school. This year with a little help from Miss Urick, he did all the art work for the Annual. MARY LOUISE RICHMAN Music Unusual interest has been shown this year in all the music organizations at Fairmont. The increased demands made upon the time and energy of these students have met with an even greater willingness to serve. Poor attitude toward the work has been so rare as to be almost forgotten. All the music organizations have accomplished a very gratifying amount of work. If the commendation of the director is of any value to these students who compose these groups, they may rest assured that every individual has his highest regard and deepest appreciation. W. B.

The Freshman Course, " Comrades of Jesus in the Abundant Life,” faces the problems of life as seen by a high school student and measures our purposes, standards, and conduct by the ideals of Jesus in a very concrete way. We study such themes as " Student Activities,” " Stand¬ ards for Social Life,” " Problems in Individual Growth,” " Home Life,” " Friendships,” etc. The Senior Course this year has been a study of " How We Got Our Bible.” Here we dis¬ covered how God has worked through men to make Himself increasingly clear to the human race, and preserved the religious experiences of each generation for the benefit of the next. We have gained a new appreciation of the Bible and of God ' s working with men. Our themes included " How the Books of the Bible Were Written. " " How the Bible Was Translated and Preserved,” " The Bible in the Lives of Men.” Next year the Senior Course will be " Jesus’ Ideals for the World Today.” In this course we shall help pupils to feel that Jesus is still working in the world today as the Spirit guides us to accomplish a Christian order, to help them to define desirable Christian outcomes in the life of the world and to feel the challenge to work with God in accomplishing them. Subjects for discussion will be these: 1. An Individual 3. High School 5. A Christian Nation 2. Home Life 4. A Christian City 6. A Christian World Nine

The association assisted Miss Moore in serving the football banquet. This proved most successful both as to numbers and to execution of all details. A column of material has been furnished for the Fairmontonian each month. A variety show to be given by the men members of the organization, under the leadership of the Ways and Means Committee, promises an entertaining social event for the spring. Though still small in numbers, the interest and loyalty of its membership promises a growing future for the Fairmont P.-T. A. Parent Teachers Association Eleven
