As every navy lias its Bureau ol Naviga- tion to direc t the policies of the fleet, so does I lammond have a Board ol Education to direct its fleet ol schools. I his hoard con- sists ol live men — Mr. Fred V. Dcdelow, I )r. Clarence A. Mc ey. Mr. C laude C. Sold. Mr. Clarence A Mason, and Mr. Elmer McKay. I lie duty ol these men is to see that the Hammond schools are kept safe and in repair, and to provide for the high standard ol edu cation lor which the Ham- mond schools are known. In the past year, the Board of Education has arranged lor the building of two line schools which are rapidly nearing comple- tion, and which will soon be ready to weigh anchor. I hese two are the Edison and Morton Schools whose ports lie in the south- ern waters of Hammond. I he board has also arranged for the building of an addition to the Irving School in North Hammond. Our school hoard has helped in the ob- taining and building ol our athletic field which lies in the waters surrounding the flag- ship. George Rogers Clark. I he man who is directly responsible for the management of our sc bools is our Admiral. Superintendent E. L. Caldwell, l o him we express our appreciation lor his constant eflorts in our bchall, and lor his interest in our progress as a school. We Wish to thank the men on the Board of Education lor the things which they have done to make our school the finest of the fleet of Hammond schools. We also take this opportunity to thank the Captain of the ship, our principal. Mr. R. B. Miller, lor his skillful navigation dur- ing the voyage and for his friendly interest in every member ol the crew. MR. 1. I. CAI .DWELL Supt. of Schools MR. R. B. MILLER Principal

1 he flagship, George Rogers Clark, is ihe most up to date and complete ship in the fleet of Hammond schools. 1 he equipment that is used in chemistry, physics, biology, and home economics is modern and practical- ly complete. For the physical development ol the students, the school has a large gymna- sium having a playing floor seventy-five by forty-eight feet. Adjoining the gym are showers lor both boys and girls. The appearance ol the school itself, is very beautiful. In spring its grassy parkway, newly planted elms, and its beautiful dower garden arc especially inviting to all visitors. It is with much regret that we who are about to set out into the open seas of life leave this beloved school behind us. m

STUDENT COUNCIL One ol the most important student organi- zations on the ship was the Student Coun- cil. I hrough this organization, all hands on the ship indirectly governed part of the adairs ol the ship. The council made three squads composed of various hands from the crew, and placed a member of the council in command of each squad. Ilach one had a specific duty assigned to it. I he lirst squad, under the command ol Sylvia Franken, was assigned to check up on the lockers ol the hands. Under the direction ol this squad, the hands learned to protect their valuables by keeping their lockers closed. Naturally the safety of the hands had to be considered; therefore the second squad. under the command of Janet Sweezy, was assigned the task of providing safety rules. I his squad also protected the bicycles of the crew by registering them. In this way if any bicycles were stolen, they could be easily identified. I he third squad. led by Marjorie Buell, arranged a series ol interesting and unique assembly programs. Since being in the Student Council pro- vides good training in governmental work- ings, we hope that some day we may be able to say of some great statesmen: We know them very well. J hey took their high school voyage with us. Offic ers are: Steve Novotny, president: Bill Schnell. vice-president; Dorotliymae I lultgren. secretary; Noreen Moore, treas- urer. [ 9 ]
