"Where can I find a book for my book report?” and "Could yt u find some information for my term paper?" were questions frequently heard and answered by the Student Librarians. This hard-working group unselfishly volunteered their time by keeping books in the correct places, checking materials in and out, and finding appropriate magazines and information sources for their fellow students and faculty members. Mrs. Jones, the faculty advisor, and with the officers, President—Barb Knittel, Vice-president—Sylvia Siden, and Secretary—Shirley
Mueller, helped to make Harlem's Student Librarians the worthwhile service organization that they are.
The Student Librarians added a great deal to the efficiency of the high school as a whole, and for their efforts gained the respect and gratitude of both the student body and faculty.
rc 1 c) ujdiing at me?" "Stop staring!" "Honest, f us 2 equals 4. These were just a few of the many SU (cn thoughts which ran through the minds of the ncr ou$ student teachers as they looked into the faces of t c thirty anxious children, on the day they were first presented to their classes. F.T.A. members spent one or two study halls a week working with these youngsters learning the problems which they'll have to cope when they enter their chosen profession, that of teaching.
Under the supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Dana and Mrs. Carlson, panel discussions were organized and guest speakers were scheduled for the meetings to help answer their many questions.
Time was spent on things other than Readin’, Rilin’, and Rithmetic. The first of the three highlights of the year was the Christmas project, which put each girl to work making or buying gifts for other children. Next came the annual visit to a teacher's college where the girls could preview what their future college years held for them. A Teacher's Tea, held in behalf of the elementary teachers who participated in the student teaching program, provided a suitable close for the F.T.A. year.

The capable officers selected by this year’s chorus were: President—Mary Kaye Gilbert, Vice-President—Maggie Blank, Secretary—Barb Nelson, and Treasurer—Pam Zander.
Highlighting the year was the final performance, the Spring Concert given by the chorus members in honor of mothers and invited guests.

Why not have a speech club? Through this persistent question asked by many inquiring students, Harlem’s newest club came into existence. Forensic League, the clubs respected name, was formed in the fall of this year to sponsor all speech activities. Its main purpose is to help further interest in speech activities and to cultivate speech skills. Sponsoring the IHSA functions and Harlem’s Debate Tournament were also part of the club's program.
All students interested in practicing speeches in front of audiences met every Friday after school. Many nervous students presented their first debates to their fellow Forensic Leaguers. Besides giving these people valuable practice in giving speeches, the orations were also perfected by critical comments from the observers.
The officers along with Mr. Arnold, their advisor, worked hard on planning programs for each week. Debates, oration, extempore speaking, and play and poetry recitation were included in these programs.
Forensic League's two big projects of the year were the sponsoring of the Harlem Debate Tournament and the Illinois Speech Contest. The debate tournament was a ''first'' for Harlem. It was held on December 19, with debaters from thirteen schools from the Northern Illinois area. The club plans to make this debate tournament an annual occurrence.
The Forensic League’s first year prosed to be most successful and they arc looking forward to a bigger and better club next year.
iHola! j Coiik) csti usted? My name is Juan. I moved here to Harlem from Mexico. Naturally being interested in Spanish, I decided to join Spanish Club. A scurrying, scrambling scavenger hunt introduced me to a fun-filled year. "Fray Felipe" and "Sc Levanta" were sung as gaily as my fellow Mexicans would sing them.
The Christmas spirit ignited us to a lively Christmas party. Pinatas, Spanish Christmas songs, and refreshments (Um! Those cookies!!) helped to make the December meeting an enjoyable and fattening one.
A highlight of our year was an enlightening dissertation by an Argentina Senora, Olga Fiben. The strange customs of Argentina fascinated the espanolcs.
I was proud and thrilled to be a member of Harlem's Spanish Club. Interesting meetings were always carefully planned by our capable officers.
Thanks to the help of Miss Staley', Mrs. Bronn, and Miss Williams, this year’s Spanish Club was successful and exciting.
iAdios! IHasta cl ano que vicne!
