9' The History of Holly House In the fall of 1947 our Home Ec. teacher, Mrs. Nyren told us that through the co-operation of the school board, we were to have a whole house to work and live in during class. We decided to call it the Holly House. We each had to make a room plan as to color and furniture. We also took a field trip to Sioux City one afternoon to learn something a- bout buying equipment for a house. We looked at stoves, refrigerators, laundromat fautomatic washerj, and we were first introduced to FM Radio Reception. They showed and explained the different parts to us. At Martins we looked at stoves and kitchen-ware. From there we went to Sioux City Crockery where we looked at and priced dishes, glassware, and silverware, Some of the students went to Cooks Paint and Wallpaper Store to pick out our wallpaper. A wonderful time was enjoyed by all. While our equipment was being bought and set up, each girl made an apron. They were pretty good considering very few of us had ever made a real garment before. We also made curtains and hemmed dishtowels. AWe refinished and painted the furniture in the house and made a table for the dining room. . When we finally moved into our house, situated in the Science room, we wound ourselves and others up in wall paper and paint. But I guess in the end the paper was hanging straight and the holes not showing. We divided into four groups and made cookies and Christmas candy. At the beginning of the Second semester we lost two class members so decided to reorganize into three groups. One group made blouses while the other two groups made and served breakfast. We studied the way to set the table and Mrs. Nyren tried to teach us some manners. Group I started on their blouses while Groups II and III started planning and preparing breakfasts. ln the spring we plan to make a print dress, plan and prepare lunches and simple parties, We hope to climax our year with an "open house" tea and show our room to the community.

V 1 Agriculture Our Agriculture class under the leadership of Mr. Brouwer have planned many interesting projects. We are nearly through our book and when we finish we have planned many interesting trips. Our class consists of five members: Edward Weber, Frank Modde, Elden Baker, Melvin Hanner, and Dick Pixler, In October we went on a field trip and estimated the yield of corn, In january we visited the Art Beem farm and judged dairy cows and test- ed milk. We plan to go to see a drainage project and to test soil samples. At the present time we are studying different types of farming, Grain farming,'Livestock farming, dairying, poultry, and hog raising. We found that by specializing in one type and carrying one or more of the other types a farmer was more assured of a steady income. Soil conservation and contour farming is very essential type of farm- ing if we are to preserve our top soil which is depleting very rapidly. As a conclusion to this article on Agriculture, we feel that an Ag- riculture course is very worth-while and one that every high school boy or girl should take that lives in this belt of the United States.
