Four years ago in the fall of ' 7 four girls started on

During our Freshman year we presented a play, had parts
in a one act operetta and an Easter Cantata We played re
gularly on the volleyball and basketball teams Mrs
McArthur was our sponsor
As Sophomores we again chose Mrs lcArthur as sponsor
This year we all took part in a gypsy operetta, nChon1ta
and we each earned a letter in basketball with Darlene play

We chose Hrs Crawford as sponsor We all took part in
music and athletics and all but LVena joined the band, which
was organized this year Class rings were ordered and we

the WACS I spent three years in the service and then re
turned home I bought a ranch in Montana where I have my
own cattle and race horses I am still single because I
haven't found a man yet who will do my housework for me '

For the third consecutive year, the Gem High School was
filled with the jovial countenances of three Juniors, Ken
neth Poland, Al Sohmaderer, and Ilea Sporing They had re
turned for another year of 'book lar'nfLn"'
Although Darrell Leh moved to new 'stomping grounds' at
Shelby, Nebraska, we courageously began our studies of

Our class administration oonsists of Kenneth as Presi
dent, Ilea as Vice presidnnt, and Al as Secretary Treasurer
We selected lr Beery as our class sponsor
All in all we think this has been a very successful year

Numbers and figures abound in this second period class
During the year some of the topics have been selling, travel
and transportation, public utilities, taxes, finance, busi
ness ownership and problems connected with personal finance
and record keeping Along with all of this the fundamentals
of arithmetic were covered thoroughly This is a very prac
tical course for the average individual
Every morning at ten o'olock three Senior girls could
be found in the typing room All types of letters were typ
ed along with manuscripts, legal documents, and business pap-
ers Every other week the Gem Tiger , school paper, was
published in conjunction with the Journalism class
progress has been made Our typing speed runs from 35 to 55
words per minute During the year all types of letters and
personal typing was studied in detail
Just before noon at ll OO each day the Sophomores Juni
ors, and Seniors studied American History The history of
our nation from its discovery to the present was covered
Each day we took a few minutes to talk over current events
What was originally known as the old nstore roomn was
converted into an Industrial Arts shop during the summer of
1950 Our custodian, Mr Bond, worked throughout the sum er
cleaning and painting the room for a shop During the first
week in September florescent lights were added to the shop
Used power equipment including circular saws, lathe, shaper,
hand saw, jig saw and grinder was purchased at bargain rates
The beginning of the 1950 school term found 12 junior high
students as well as ten high school students showing a de
cided interest in this field of education During the first
semester projects varying from wall shelves to magazine
racks, end tables, bookcases and cedar chests were mastered
The second semester may find some of the students delving
into other fields of the arts such as art metal and jewelry
. ' n n A ' '
Six students enrolled for Typing I during 1950-51. Much
The Journalism class alternated a week of text book
study with the publication of the Gem Tiger Eighteen pub
lioations were printed through the school term
World History text assignments were supplemented by
special reports, workbook exercises, and nWor1d lap of the
ENGLISH I, II, III
After having completed a semester of grammar, the Eng
lish classes read short stories, plays, poems, and essays
Favorite fictional books chosen from the student book
guild are 'Meet Corliss Arohern, 'The Light That Failed',
Kin Soloman's Hines , nChamps on Ice , and 'Autumn Mad
Eighteen new novels have been ordered for our school
library They consist of western stories, sport stories and
human interest comedies, and should appeal to the interest
of all the students
New editions of Tress1er's 'English In Action grammar
and workbooks have been approved for 1951 S2
The average score of the Emporia spelling tests was 90
Literature, grammar, and vocabulary tests will be given late
in the second semester
The high school Geometry class composed of all senior
girls have very capably met the challenge that Geometry
offers to students
They have literally torn the triangle apart, bisected
everything from an angle to an examination grade, pushed
rectangles into parallelograms, disentegrated degrees into
seconds, as well as mastering some four hundred propositions
covering closed figures
These young ladies have kept an outline of all mater
ials covered throughout the term and current plans are to
have these outlines bound into books to be kept as souven
irsu of those GEOMETRY classes
