The Vigilante for l958 is dedicated with respect and admiration to our Latin and Word
Clues teacher, Miss Amsel Greene.
Miss Greene, mindful of the need of students for expanding their vocabularies and
their command of the English language, developed a unique course of study she called
Word Clues. Since there were no suitable textbooks on this subject she wrote her own. A
measure of the success of this undertaking is to be found in the high ranking of Helena
High students in various scholarship and college entrance examinations.
During her career in Helena, Miss Greene has taught in all five High Schools. Her first
assignment was in the old stone building on Warren Street, now used as a Naval Training
Center. She moved to what was then the new High School on Rodney Street when it was
opened in l935 only to be closed in October because of the damage caused by the earth-
quakes. Until the school could be rebuilt, classes were temporarily held in railroad chair
Now after only three years in the Helena Senior High School which was finished just
in time for the 1955-1956 school year, Miss Greene is resigning to devote her time to the
teaching of adults in her chosen field of word culture.
We of the Vigilante staff proudly dedicate our Annual to a devoted, honored and revf
ered teacher and friend.
