In this modern world, and with our modern way of life, there can be question of the importance of being a well-rounded individual; one who has ample knowledge and can use it, one who can get along well with other people, and one who constantly tries to better himself and gives freely of his time and energy to aid his fellow-man. With the sole purpose of giving recognition to the high school student who is outstanding in these important aspects, the National Honor Society was established in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. This society has grown to such an extent that a chapter of it is found in almost every large high school in the United States. Harlem’s Chapter of the National Honor Society was established by Mrs. Dorothy Wood and Mr. Paul E. Mann in the spring of 1951.
Membership in this "honor society” is one of the highest honors that :an be bestowed upon a high school student. Only 5% of the junior class and K)% of the senior class are eligible for membership. Candidates for induction arc carefully considered each year by the members of the high school faculty, and the selection is based on the four fundamental concepts of the National Honor Society; character, leadership, scholarship, and sen-ice. These criteria for membership make it evident that getting superior grades in school does not assure one of membership. Membership must be strived for and is not based on grades alone. Only those students who stand out as leaders in the giving of themselves to the various phases of school life are accorded the honor of membership in National Honor Society.
OFFICERS: Steve Evans. President; Regina Wright. Secretary; Terry Shall-cross, Treasurer; Al Markunas, Vice President.

Harlem’s H-Club is comprised of boys who have earned major letters for athletic achievements. However, a major letter is only a ticket for admission into the letterman’s club. In order to maintain active membership, athletes are expected to perform certain duties . . . helping with the planning of the Homecoming Dance, ushering at home basketball games, and attending all meetings.
Under the leadership of President Tom McKay, and the other officers, Vice-President, Frank Hon; Secretary-Treasurer, Jay Peterson; and Scrgeant-at-Arms, Richard Maitland, the H-CIub was one of the school’s more active organizations.
The annual H-Club steak fry, attended by all members, as well as faculty advisors, Mr. Phillips, Mr. Wicbusch, Mr. Ostrom, and Mr. Moser, closed the books on a successful athletic year at Harlem.

"One picture is worth a thousand words,” so the saying goes; but just think how many poorly written words it would take to describe one picture. The ability to express ideas or describe events in writing is a talent which few possess, and still fewer exercise. With the noble purpose of encouraging achievement in writing and other phases of high school journalism, Quill and Scroll Society was founded in 1926 by a group of high school publications advisers. Today the society includes more than three thousand chapters in every state and in several foreign countries. The Harlem Chapter, organized in 1955, is under the sponsorship of Mr. Paul E. Mann and Mr. William C. Hyde.
The present members, elected as juniors, were inducted into Quill and Scroll last spring during the usual impressive candlelight ceremony. Members elected to the society must be of junior or senior standing, rank in the upper third of their class, contribute outstanding work in high school journalism, be recommended by their advisor, and receive the approval of the executive secretary of the society.
The influence of Quill and Scroll serves not only to inspire members of the school publication staffs to greater efforts, but also to engender greater interest in journalism work on the part of the students, the school, and the community.
